Proof Of Ukraine Meddling

Adam Schiff and the Democrats have been calling stories about Ukraine meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections a conspiracy theory.  That such stories of Ukraine interference have been debunked.  Yesterday, during the final day of public impeachment hearings, witness Fiona Hill, a former NSC analyst, echoed such talk.  She called stories of Ukraine meddling as part of a Russian disinformation scheme.  All of these are lies!  The story of Ukraine meddling in the 2016 elections did not originate from Russia, Right-wing Media, nor even Rudy Giuliani.  Fact-based reports came from media sources like the Financial Times, the New York Times and Politico.  They were confirmed by many Ukraine officials and even from a Ukraine court ruling in 2018.  There is no doubt that many members of the Ukraine government actively opposed the Trump 2016 campaign.  Much of this story centers around one person, a DNC contractor named Alexandra Chalupa.

Chalupa is of Ukrainian descent and was being paid by the DNC for many years, running up till July, 2016.  She first began exploring a possible connection between then Candidate Donald Trump and Russia in 2015.  Early in 2016, Chalupa started preparing for Paul Manafort potentially joining the Trump campaign.  According to the Politico article by Ken Vogel and David Stern from January 11, 2017, Chalupa visited the Ukraine embassy in Washington, DC in March of 2016.  She met with Ukraine Ambassador Valeriy Chaly and an assistant, Oksana Shulyar.  Chalupa discussed possible ties between Trump and Manafort with Russia.  There were two immediate results from this meeting.  She got then Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to comment in public about ties between Paul Manafort and a pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarch, Viktor Yanukovych.  Chalupa also got Ambassador Chaly to write an anti-Trump op-ed which was published in The Hill.  

Later, more collusion between Chalupa and Ukraine developed.  Oksana Shulyar arranged for Chalupa to work with the embassy political officer, Andrii Telizhenko.  Together, they continued to research possible links between Trump and Manafort with Russia.  Telizhenko confirmed to Politico that Chalupa was working closely with the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign.  That their goal was to dig up enough dirt to force Congressional hearings.  Chalupa's accomplice in this was Democrat Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur from Ohio.  Kaptur issued an email memo calling for a bill in Congress to launch such an investigation into foreign interference in the 2016 elections.  Kaptur named Russia as a probable meddler,  We should also note here that Rep. Marcy Kaptur was the co-chair of the Congressional Ukrainian Caucus.

In May of 2016, Chalupa arranged for Ukrainian organization to hold a conference at the Library of Congress to be sponsored by an internationalist group, Open World Society, inviting over 60 U.S. journalists.  In an email to DNC Communication Director, Luis Miranda, the goal was to highlight to the journalists on Paul Manafort arranging a $26 Million dollar deal with a Russian oligarch for a Ukraine telecom venture.  She also met with Michael Isikoff, who published a story in Yahoo News on the deal just two days before the conference. Later, Yahoo News named Chalupa as one of "16 ordinary people" who "shaped the 2016 elections."  

In August 2016, the New York Times published a story about Paul Manafort being investigated by the FBI.  Chalupa had met with former journalist and then member of Ukraine Parliament, Serhiy Leshchenko.  He then held a news conference to "undermine Trump" and called for both the U.S. and Ukraine to investigate Paul Manafort.  Leshchenko said that most Ukraine politicians supported Hillary Clinton.  He then released the infamous 'Black Ledgers', detailing financial dealings between Manafort and pro-Russian oligarchs.  These ledgers were later used in the indictments of Manafort.

Other Ukraine officials joined in the attacks against Candidate Donald Trump.  Former Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk launched a series of anti-Trump comments on Facebook.  Ukrainian Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakow tweeted on Twitter in July 2016 that Trump was "a clown".  On Facebook, Avakow said that Trump was, "dangerous for Ukraine and the U.S."  Ukraine's ambassador to the United States, Valeriy Chaly got deeper involved, ordering embassy staff not to have any contact with the Trump campaign.  At the same time, they were in regular contact with the Hillary Clinton campaign.  Chaly told one staffer, "Hillary is going to win."  Ukraine Parliament member Andriy Artemenko commented that, "it was clear" that the embassy was "supporting Hillary Clinton's campaign."

After Trump won the election, Ukraine hired a PR firm to try to get access to Trump and smooth out conflicts.  One staffer said that they were willing to pay a ton of cash to access Trump.  The Ukraine lobby is well funded and very active in the U.S.  Even today, they continue.  Igor Pasternack held a fund raiser for Adam Schiff.  For $1,000 or $2,500, you too can have a "Taste of Ukraine" as you mingle with Schiff.  There is much more, but clearly, there was quite a bit of meddling by Ukraine in the 2016 election, supporting Hillary Clinton and besmirching Trump.
