Double Standard? Team Trump Calls Out DNC Coordination With Ukraine

 

Following Donald Trump Jr.'s exclusive interview with Sean Hannity, critics accused him of colluding with Russia on behalf of his father.

 

However, defenders of the Trumps now point to a Politico report that Democratic operatives similarly colluded with Ukrainian officials to help Hillary Clinton in 2016.

 

Trump Jr. is accused of accepting a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya on terms that she had dirt on the Clintons.

 

The meeting didn't pan out, according to Trump Jr., and Veselnitskaya instead lobbied for the repeal of the Magnitsky Act.

 

Kristin Fisher reported that Alexandra Chalupa, a Ukrainian-American Democratic operative, may have been involved in facilitating cooperation between the DNC and Kiev.

 

Chalupa used to work for the Bill Clinton administration and reportedly met during Hillary's campaign with the Ukrainian ambassador.

 

The two talked about then-future Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's ties to Russia - a sworn enemy of Ukraine.

 

Politico said those alleged efforts had an impact on the 2016 race, and Trump supporters said the lack of coverage is a double standard to Trump's detriment.

 

However, Fisher said while Russian efforts to interfere came directly from the top - President Putin - Ukrainian efforts were likely not directed by President Petro Poroshenko.

This is a real situation that perfectly illustrates collusion to influence the 2016 election.

 

Too funny!  Ucraine, Ucraine, Ucraine!!  Collusion!  Where is the call to investigate?

 


A six month old story that has already been addressed by all sorts of media.

 

A story that was dredged up by Sean Hannity because the TRUMPS have no answer for Junior's emails.

 

Are you serious, Sean Hannity??????  Sean Hannity???????

 

Might as well call The Washington Times 100% truthful and trustworthy!!!!!

Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire

 

Kiev officials are scrambling to make amends with the president-elect after quietly working to boost Clinton.

01/11/2017 05:05 AM EST

 

Donald Trump wasn’t the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country.

 

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. But they were far less concerted or centrally directed than Russia’s alleged hacking and dissemination of Democratic emails.

 

Russia’s effort was personally directed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, involved the country’s military and foreign intelligence services, according to U.S. intelligence officials. They reportedly briefed Trump last week on the possibility that Russian operatives might have compromising information on the president-elect. And at a Senate hearing last week on the hacking, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said “I don't think we've ever encountered a more aggressive or direct campaign to interfere in our election process than we've seen in this case.”

 

There’s little evidence of such a top-down effort by Ukraine. Longtime observers suggest that the rampant corruption, factionalism and economic struggles plaguing the country — not to mention its ongoing strife with Russia — would render it unable to pull off an ambitious covert interference campaign in another country’s election. And President Petro Poroshenko’s administration, along with the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, insists that Ukraine stayed neutral in the race.

That is a funny topic jimc91.

 

Elbonia may have also probably colluded with Hillary's campaign. So where is the call to investigate that?

 

Trump needs to move his voter fraud investigators to an Elbonian collusion investigation ...... a far more likely event than Trump's voter fraud concern.

 

 

DUMP TRUMP AND MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
