The boomerang from the Democratic Party’s failed attempt to connect Donald Trump to Russia’s 2016 election meddling is picking up speed, and its flight path crosses right through Moscow’s pesky neighbor, Ukraine. That is where there is growing evidence a foreign power was asked, and in some cases tried, to help Hillary Clinton.
In its most detailed account yet, Ukraine’s embassy in Washington says a Democratic National Committee insider during the 2016 election solicited dirt on Donald Trump’s campaign chairman and even tried to enlist the country’s president to help.
In written answers to questions, Ambassador Valeriy Chaly’s office says DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa sought information from the Ukrainian government on Paul Manafort’s dealings inside the country, in hopes of forcing the issue before Congress.
Chalupa later tried to arrange for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to comment on Manafort’s Russian ties on a U.S. visit during the 2016 campaign, the ambassador said.
Chaly says that, at the time of the contacts in 2016, the embassy knew Chalupa primarily as a Ukrainian-American activist, and learned only later of her ties to the DNC. He says the embassy considered her requests an inappropriate solicitation of interference in the U.S. election.
“The Embassy got to know Ms. Chalupa because of her engagement with Ukrainian and other diasporas in Washington D.C., and not in her DNC capacity. We’ve learned about her DNC involvement later,” Chaly said in a statement issued by his embassy. “We were surprised to see Alexandra’s interest in Mr. Paul Manafort’s case. It was her own cause. The Embassy representatives unambiguously refused to get involved in any way, as we were convinced that this is a strictly U.S. domestic matter.
“All ideas floated by Alexandra were related to approaching a Member of Congress with a purpose to initiate hearings on Paul Manafort or letting an investigative journalist ask President Poroshenko a question about Mr. Manafort during his public talk in Washington, D.C.,” the ambassador explained.
The rest is at The Hill
Time for inditments time for some leading Grand Poo Poo Heads in the DNC to Pay the piper
A detail liberals, though they know it to be wrong, don’t think is a problem when liberals do it.
Notice how little interest, meanwhile, the DNC, Democrats and liberals in general have with the Ukrainian investigation of Biden’s son and Biden’s attempts, as VP, to force them to end that investigation.
Every time a country is destabilized by outside influences the vultures pick the bones, Biden bragged what a vulture he was. Venezuela is now affected by China, Russia and Cuba supporting the evil dictator that they prop up. Citizens being run down by military vehicles isnt the worst thing going on there.
That is the style regime the Democrat party would bring here.
Proof is what they have done with our Justice, intelligence and investigation departments. It did not start with Obama we can only hope its smashed by Trump.
