Who was the U.S. Senator Who Asked Russia to Help His Party Win an Election?

Hint: It wasn’t Jeff Sessions.

In 1991, a reporter for the London Times found a May 14, 1983, memo in the Soviet archives.

It was from Victor Chebrikov, then the top man at the KGB.

It was addressed to Yuri Andropov, then the top man in the entire USSR and a former director of the KGB.

The subject was Sen. Edward Kennedy’s recent request for Russia’s help in defeating Ronald Reagan in the 1984 presidential election.

In exchange, Kennedy offered to visit Moscow to help Soviet officials brush up their propaganda on nuclear disarmament and to arrange for Andropov to enjoy chummy interviews with major American television companies.

In 1992, the reporter published a story about the memorandum in the London Times. Big surprise (NOT), here in the U.S., the left-stream media yawned.
