The Democrats and their faithful dictation-keepers in the media want us to believe that any mention of Ukraine’s involvement in the 2016 election is a conspiracy theory cooked up by fevered Trump supporters and evil Russian propagandists. But no matter how hard they try to deny it, the fact remains that there are contemporary, left-wing media news reports that indicate that representatives from the Democratic National Committee worked with the Ukrainians to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump. And one person, in particular, was responsible for carrying out that mission.
So it is that the spotlight has turned on former DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa and her efforts to get dirt on Trump from the Ukrainians in 2016. This week, Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson demanded that the Senate be given more information about Chalupa’s activities during the election.
According to the right-wingers over at…oh, Politico…Chalupa met with a Ukrainian embassy official in 2016 to get information that could be damaging to the Trump campaign.
“Donald Trump wasn’t the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country,” reporter Ken Vogel wrote at Politico on January 1, 2017. “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.”
The woman in charge of all of this digging was Chalupa, herself a Ukrainian-American with deep ties in the region.
Politico has since divorced itself from its own reporting, as inconvenient as it is to today’s narrative. But their waffling doesn’t change the fact that, back in the early days of 2017, it was accepted as fact that the Clinton campaign and the DNC (which were basically a single entity during the election) worked with the Ukrainians in an attempt to discredit Trump.
You know…the exact thing that we spent $35 million and two years investigating Trump for supposedly doing with the Russians.
“If this reporting is accurate, it appears that the DOJ and FBI have in their possession material relevant to our Committees’ ongoing investigation into collusive actions Chalupa and the DNC took to use foreign government sources to undermine the Trump campaign during the 2016 election,” Grassley and Johnson wrote in a letter to the Justice Department.
Last week, Politico wrote in an article that “no evidence has emerged” to support the idea that Ukraine was working with the Clintons against Trump in 2016. The left is trying very, very hard to stuff all of this into the memory hole.
It’s up to Republicans to make sure that doesn’t happen.
