Elder Patriot- Oh dear. It seems that no matter how much help Hillary Clinton was given there was just no way to pull her across the finish line.
The entire Democrat machine had been stacked in her favor denying Bernie Sanders the nomination.
She was fed debate questions by CNN contributor and former DNC chairperson Donna Brazile.
The FBI refused to conduct a serious investigation of her use of a private, unsecured, email server that might’ve lead to charges of sedition.
Virtually the entire intelligence community was weaponized against her Republican opponent, Donald Trump.
And now the Ukrainian embassy is saying that DNC insider was soliciting dirt on candidate Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort.
John Solomon explains:
In its most detailed account yet, the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington says a Democratic National Committee (DNC) insider during the 2016 election solicited dirt on Donald Trump’s campaign chairman and even tried to enlist the country’s president to help.
In written answers to questions, Ambassador Valeriy Chaly’s office says DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa sought information from the Ukrainian government on Paul Manafort’s dealings inside the country, in hopes of forcing the issue before Congress.
We first reported on the DNC-Ukraine collusion to help Hillary Clinton in late July of 2017. But, we’re “Fake News” so no one paid attention. Actually, that’s not entirely accurate.
First stories began appearing criticizing our work as false reporting and dangerous. Then we were diminished, and eventually banished from Facebook.
It’s now almost two years later and the mainstream media still isn’t reporting on the DNC-Ukraine collusion. But hey, you aren’t being manipulated, right?
Chalupa later tried to arrange for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to comment on Manafort’s Russian ties on a U.S. visit during the 2016 campaign, the ambassador said.
Chaly says that, at the time of the contacts in 2016, the embassy knew Chalupa primarily as a Ukrainian-American activist and learned only later of her ties to the DNC. He says the embassy considered her requests an inappropriate solicitation of interference in the U.S. election.
In 2017 it had been reported that Chalupa was a Ukrainian-American activist who was paid $70,000 as a consultant by the DNC during the 2016 presidential cycle. All told she was paid $412,000 between 2004 and 2016 while working with Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller reported that then-Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley sent an official letter of inquiry to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein asking for an explanation as to why he wasn’t investigating Chalupa for violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
At the time, Democrats contended that this was a non-story because the DNC-Ukraine collaboration also did not directly involve the Clinton campaign. That doesn’t pass the smell test.
All reporting to date on Paul Manafort suggests that his involvement with Ukraine occurred years before his attachment to the Trump presidential campaign.
In Chalupa’s case, her alignment with the DNC was a tacit alignment with Hillary’s campaign. Hillary Clinton owned the DNC at that time. Ms. Clinton cannot run from that fact.
Neither can she run from the fact that despite having everything stacked in her favor she still couldn’t win election.
