In an extremely controversial and heated interview with press meeting anchor Chuck Todd on Sunday, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) stated that he did not trust the CIA or the FBI when launching a series of conspiratorial attacks on Democrats and intelligence officials over the scandal in Ukraine.
Johnson – who said last week that he was told about the quid pro quo linked to the Ukrainian election inquiry in 2016 and that President Trump blocked him from saying that Ukraine was coming for military assistance – immediately began her defense interview, complaining that Todd was biased and the president sabotaged.
Then the Republican senator continued to accuse former FBI and CIA members of plotting to create a president after his election, claiming it had "everything in common with Ukraine."
"Why Fox News propaganda plots pop up here, I have no idea," annoyed Todd noted at one point.
"That's not true, it's because it's crossing the line, that's why President Trump is upset and why his supporters are upset by the media," Johnson shouted, to which Todd replied, "Can we answer the question that I asked you, instead of trying to make Donald Trump feel better here, that you don't criticize him? "
In the end, Johnson would tell Todd that he was "shriveled" when he heard about military assistance joining Ukraine's investigations into the 201
"Ukrainian officials have reportedly helped Clinton's allies investigate Trump's advisers," he denied. "There is potential interference with the 2016 campaign. This is what Trump wants to get down to. But the press doesn't want it. "
Johnson added:" I am called a conspiracy theorist, John Solomon – because the press is terribly biased, and Trump and his supporters fully understand it. "
Todd confronted Johnson about what he believed. he or not, former Trump campaign leader Paul Manafort was created and whether the Russians intervened in the 2016 election to benefit Trump. After he said he did not believe Manafort was in office, and the Russian "absolutely "intervened in the election, Johnson returned to predictability th Ukrainian participation in the 2016 campaign.
"There are many unanswered questions," – exclaimed Senator. "Chuck, I just want the truth. The American people want the truth."
"Don't you trust the FBI? Don't you trust the CIA?" Todd asked, forcing Johnson to shout, "No, no, I don't. Absolutely not. After Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, after James Komi ?!"  After Johnson said he did not trust anyone in the Obama administration, Todd asked him if he trusted the organizations now.
"No, I didn't trust them then," Johnson replied, listing a number of former officials who have become favorite targets of presidential supporters.
Todd, apparently not tolerating Johnson at the end, suggested that Johnson was only interested in a truth that was "politically comfortable" for him before he got into one final shootout.
"I'm sorry you decided to go this way, Senator."
