The Democratic National Committee was conspiring with Ukraine officials to try to influence the election
For all of the talk about Russia trying to influence the outcome of the election to help Donald Trump win the Presidency here is something you probably have not heard much of, if at all, in the mainstream media: If this story is true there was also political intrigue being conducted by Ukraine officials in at attempt to help Hillary Clinton. Here is more:
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.
Of course today was filled with the fake news story, which CNN ran with, about Donald Trump sending a person to Russia to conspire with the campaign and yet here we have the Democratic National Committee basically doing the same thing and there has been no mention of this story by the mainstream media.
Isn’t it funny how that works…
