The Democratic National Committee asked Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko for help in its unseemly plot to sabotage Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016, according to media reports.
The revelation comes as a backlash continues to build against Deep State Democrats for foisting the now-discredited Trump-Russian electoral collusion conspiracy theory on the American public as a way to explain Democrat Hillary Clinton’s unexpected defeat and to cover up President Obama’s leadership role in a real-life left-wing conspiracy to take down Trump’s campaign, transition team, and new administration.
The Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, D.C., now acknowledges DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa (pictured above) asked the Ukrainian government for dirt on Trump and for information about his one-time campaign manager Paul Manafort’s dealings with Russia’s neighboring country, John Solomon reports at The Hill newspaper.
Chalupa spends much of her time spreading lies and trashing President Trump on Twitter. For example, on May 4, she urged the Twenty-Fifth Amendment be invoked to overthrow Trump. She wrote:
The Putin-controlled occupant of the Oval Office praised Kim Jong-un after he conducted missile tests.
He briefed Putin on the Mueller probe & discussed an American witness.
Are we going to wait until he gets millions killed before removing him or is this the plan?
In his recent article, Solomon was following up on his earlier reports. He reported in March that Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko launched an investigation into whether during the 2016 U.S. election cycle his government deliberately leaked financial records about Manafort in a bid to help Clinton’s candidacy.
A Ukrainian court ruled that the leak was deemed, in Lutsenko’s words, to be “an illegal intrusion into the American election campaign.” That court determined that Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau, which worked closely with the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, and parliamentarian Serhiy Leshchenko improperly inserted themselves into the U.S. election by releasing the Manafort-related documents.
Before becoming prosecutor general Lutsenko “was a major activist against Russia’s influence in his country during the tenure of Moscow-allied former President Viktor Yanukovych. He became chief prosecutor in 2016 as part of anti-corruption reforms instituted by current President Petro Poroshenko, an ally of the U.S. and Western countries,” Solomon reports.
The office of Valeriy Chaly, Ukraine’s ambassador to the United States, said in a recent statement that Chalupa asked the embassy for information about Manafort’s dealings inside Ukraine and that it deemed her requests to be inappropriate solicitations to interfere in the American elections.
“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.
“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.,” Chaly said.
Chaly’s statement confirmed the key points of a January 2017 Politico story about Chalupa’s exploits. That story stated:
Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.
A Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington in an effort to expose ties between Trump, top campaign aide Paul Manafort and Russia, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.
The Ukrainian efforts had an impact in the race, helping to force Manafort’s resignation and advancing the narrative that Trump’s campaign was deeply connected to Ukraine’s foe to the east, Russia.
Nellie Ohr, spouse of disgraced senior U.S. Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, said in congressional testimony that while she was employed by the Clinton-paid research firm Fusion GPS she conducted research into any ties Manafort and Trump had to Russia. While doing so she found that Leshchenko was funneling intelligence to Fusion, which retained former British spy Christopher Steele whose ridiculous dossier the FBI used to initiate a surveillance operation against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Solomon wrote in April that the Obama White House asked Ukrainian law enforcement to meet in January 2016 as Trump began climbing in the polls. After the meeting, the U.S. asked Ukraine for assistance in probing Manafort. In May 2016 the Ukrainians leaked the Manafort papers.
Andrii Telizhenko, a former political officer under Chaly from December 2015 through June 2016, told Solomon he met with Chalupa, whom he knew was “someone working for the DNC and trying to get Clinton elected.”
“She said the DNC wanted to collect evidence that Trump, his organization and Manafort were Russian assets, working to hurt the U.S. and working with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin against the U.S. interests,” he told Solomon. “She indicated if we could find the evidence they would introduce it in Congress in September and try to build a case that Trump should be removed from the ballot, from the election.”
And so another chapter in the sordid history of the Democratic Party begins.
