Joe Scarborough Says GOP Lawmakers Are Turning Themselves Into ‘Russian Assets’

MSNBC 'Morning Joe' host Joe Scarborough speaks during an interview with his co-host Mika Brzezinski and philanthropist and financier David Rubenstein during a Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics event in the McGowan Theater at the National Archives July 12, 2017 in Washington, DC.

During Monday’s edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough addressed Sen. John Kennedy’s recent comments that both Russia and Ukraine meddled in the 2016 United States presidential election — a controversial theory that is being pushed by Donald Trump and his allies amid the impeachment probe into the president.

Scarborough accused Kennedy of “parroting Russian propaganda points” and said that by repeating such “discredited” points, GOP lawmakers are turning themselves into “Russian assets,” Breitbart reports.

“Republicans are coming back — they still have no defense, and they’re actually reduced now to doing nothing but repeating Russian propaganda points,” Scarborough said.

“As somebody said yesterday, if they do that, knowing the 17 intel agencies told them it was a lie and being warned in the United States Senate, then actually they’re not ignorant, that they’ve actually turned themselves into being Russian assets. That’s where we are as a nation as this week begins.”
