No evidence Ukraine meddled in 2016 election: State Dept. official

State Department official David Hale told Democratic Senator Bob Menendez during a hearing on future U.S. policy towards Russia that Kremlin meddling in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election was not a "hoax."

No evidence Ukraine meddled in 2016 election: State Dept. official

Lawmakers and the public have heard testimony from current and former officials that military aid was withheld from Ukraine and that a White House meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was conditioned on Kiev probing Biden and his son Hunter as well as a debunked conspiracy theory about Ukraine interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale, the No.

3 State Department official, told a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Tuesday that he had seen no evidence that Ukraine - not Russia - interfered in the 2016 elections, undermining an argument used by Trump and some of his supporters.

An investigation by the Republican-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee also could not substantiate allegations of Ukraine's interference, two congressional sources said on condition of anonymity.
