Counter-Punch: Congress Digging into Possible DNC-Ukraine Collusion

With no end in sight for the Russia collusion investigation, Congress may be forcing the shoe on the other foot with evidence that the DNC may be the pot calling the kettle black.

According to an emerging congressional investigation, a Ukrainian-American, Alexandra Chalupa, worked as a consultant for the Democrat National Committee during the election.

That’s all fine and good, except Chalupa (who incidentally has no relationship with Taco Bell) also met with her pals at the Ukrainian embassy to strategize on ‘incriminating information’ about Trump’s campaign.

If that doesn’t qualify as colluding with foreign governments, nothing does.

This story has legs, folks.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Republicans in Congress have joined the White House in asking questions about the extent to which a Democratic Party consultant may have worked with Ukrainian officials to hurt then-candidate Donald Trump’s presidential bid last year.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley wrote a letter earlier this week to the Justice Department asking whether the Democratic National Committee broke the law. Grassley, R-Iowa, specifically asked if the DOJ was investigating Alexandra Chalupa, a Ukrainian-American DNC consultant who allegedly had meetings at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, D.C., to discuss incriminating information about Trump campaign officials.

President Trump, trying furiously to tamp down the controversy over alleged Russian coordination with his associates, has questioned why the same scrutiny is not being applied to the Democrats’ alleged Ukraine connection.

In a Tuesday tweet, he complained about the lack of an investigation into Ukraine efforts to “sabotage” his campaign.

Prying into such claims, Grassley’s letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein flagged the “deficient enforcement” of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) and asked why the Justice Department did not require Chalupa to register.

“Chalupa’s actions appear to show that she was simultaneously working on behalf of a foreign government, Ukraine, and on behalf of the DNC and Clinton campaign, in an effort to influence not only the U.S. voting population but U.S. government officials,” Grassley wrote to Rosenstein, claiming that if that were the case, Chalupa would have been required under law to register under FARA.
