With the Russia hysteria in the United States already moved into high gear, in a Deep State attempt to bring down a duly-elected president of the United States, a watchdog group is filing a complaint that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) colluded knowingly with the government of Ukraine in an attempt to defeat President Trump in the 2016 election. The Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust (FACT) will be filing a complaint with the Federal Election Commission today, reports The Hill.
Alexandra Chalupa was a consultant during the election for the DNC and was active in building opposition research against Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort. Manafort was eventually let go from the Trump campaign due to concern over his activities in Ukraine during the Yanykovych presidency.
“Federal law and Commission regulations prohibit any person from knowingly soliciting, accepting or receiving contributions or donations of money or other things of value from a foreign national,” the complaint reads, writes The Hill. The language is taken from straight from documents used against President Trump and other campaign members and officials.
“Chalupa “developed a network of sources in Kiev and Washington, including investigative journalists, government officials and private intelligence operatives,” according to Politico, and “occasionally shared her findings with officials from the DNC.” Chalupa was a minorities outreach coordinator at the DNC. Officials say she was freelancing and not representing the DNC in her efforts to gather information on Manafort,” writes The Hill.
Tsarizm editor-in-chief broke the news while writing for the Washington Times in the fall of last year that the evidence against Manafort published in the New York Times was not provided by the Ukrainian National Corruption Bureau as stated in the article, but was taken from the ‘internet.’ Ukraine now has dropped the investigation against Manafort and has made overtures to Trump directly in Washington.
Opinion: Should Ukraine Be Worried About Trump?
Ukraine now is pushing the United States to arm Kyiv in its fight against pro-Russian rebels in Donbass. In other news, it was reported that the FBI raided manafort’s home to acquire documents in July. This story seems to be overblown and another attempt to sensationalize the Trump-Russia narrative. Manafort has been providing docuemnts to Congressional investigative committees voluntarily for some time.
Tsarizm will be updating the Manafort angle with Ukraine story in the near future.
