One good thing may have came from the Donald Trump Jr. debacle, the DNC could face an investigation to Ukrainian ties if the President’s nominee for FBI Director is confirmed by the Senate.
Clinton’s team met with the Ukrainian government as well as journalists with the goal specifically being to “dig up dirt” on Donald Trump and the team that helped put him in the white house. The information they managed to get was then sent to Hillary and her team over at the DNC.
The Washington Examiner reports:
During his confirmation hearing on Wednesday, Christopher Wray signaled a willingness to investigate allegations that the DNC worked with the Ukrainian government to impede Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., read an excerpt from Politico’s January investigation into the matter during his allotted time to question Wray. “Donald Trump wasn’t the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country,” Graham quoted from the report.
“Will you look into this?” Graham asked Wray after reading an excerpt from Politico’s article. The nominee responded he would be “happy to dig into it.”
Of course the media remains silent over this KEY detail of the presidential election and it makes Trump Jr’s “thing” pale in comparison.
Politico reported back in January of 2017:
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.
But Andrii Telizhenko, who worked as a political officer in the Ukrainian Embassy under Shulyar, said she instructed him to help Chalupa research connections between Trump, Manafort and Russia. “Oksana said that if I had any information, or knew other people who did, then I should contact Chalupa,” recalled Telizhenko, who is now a political consultant in Kiev. “They were coordinating an investigation with the Hillary team on Paul Manafort with Alexandra Chalupa,” he said, adding “Oksana was keeping it all quiet,” but “the embassy worked very closely with” Chalupa.
