Watchdog Files Complaint Against DNC For Colluding With Ukraine During The Election

Tyler Durden's picture

As liberal media outlets continue to claim that Trump Jr. violated campaign laws by 'seeking an in-kind contribution from a foreign national in the form of opposition research', the conservative group, Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust (FACT), is now turning that allegation on the DNC over its collusion with Ukrainian officials.

Somewhat ironically, as reports say that Paul Manafort's home was raided and numerous documents seized, The Hill reports, a watchdog group will file a complaint with the Federal Election Commission on Wednesday alleging that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) violated federal law by soliciting opposition research on the Trump campaign from a foreign government.

The conservative group Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust (FACT), launched in 2014 by former U.S. attorney Matthew Whitaker, will allege that political operative Alexandra Chalupa, in her capacity as a DNC consultant, improperly sought intelligence on President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, from Ukrainian officials.

“Federal law and Commission regulations prohibit any person from knowingly soliciting, accepting or receiving contributions or donations of money or other things of value from a foreign national,” the complaint reads.


FACT alleges that Chalupa violated the ban by “knowingly soliciting” a “valuable in-kind contribution in the form of opposition research and information on a Trump campaign official from a foreign national on behalf of the Democratic National Committee.”

The complaint is based on an investigation by Politico, which found that Chalupa “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.”

Chalupa “developed a network of sources in Kiev and Washington, including investigative journalists, government officials and private intelligence operatives,” according to Politico, and “occasionally shared her findings with officials from the DNC.”

Chalupa was a minorities outreach coordinator at the DNC. Officials say she was freelancing and not representing the DNC in her efforts to gather information on Manafort.

“The White House has been pushing this narrative to distract from the Trump campaign’s willingness to work with a hostile foreign government to interfere in our election. No one is buying it,” Adrienne Watson, a spokesperson for the DNC, said in a statement.

Ironically, The Hill notes that the FACT complaint cites several reports from liberal media outlets, including ThinkProgress, in which experts claimed that Trump Jr. violated campaign laws by seeking an in-kind contribution from a foreign national in the form of opposition research.

"...the conservative group, Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust (FACT), is now turning that allegation on the DNC over its collusion with Ukrainian officials."

So because they are going after both political parties, we must assume all is well and the watch dogs are on the job protecting our freedoms.

Now can I take my nap?

Wasn't VP Biden's son, Hunter, knee deep (on a major Gas Company Board) in Ukraine business?  Is he that squeaky clean, didn't know US political stuff was going on there under his nose?  Or is this forbidden ground?

As froze25 said:

"Really good interview regarding this."

Lee Stranahan has been working this story for quite some time. It is big.

It's really hard to click on a Froze25 link.

It's an InfoWars interview of Lee Stranahan and it's good. Alex isn't around so there aren't a bunch of interruptions and distracting rants.

Lee Stranahan is a careful journalist and does very respectable work. Zero conjecture. You won't be sorry for clicking on the link.

Well, peeples be peeples.


Just like blacks name their kids Bare-ack after soweeto.

They name their dawgs wookie after Hussein's pet wookie.

The Mexicans name their kids after their fav dish.

Same name their gurls Chalua and their boyz Fajita.

Depends how much you want your kid to hate you when they grow up.

She's not really that fat. The camera adds 85 pounds.

“Federal law and Commission regulations prohibit any person from knowingly soliciting, accepting or receiving contributions or donations of money or other things of value from a foreign national,”...

WTF does Hitlery and the DNC care about law? Apparently the law applies only to others.

"Watchdog" is absolutely the correct terminology for observing this bitch.

The right hates the left the left hates the right.  There is no real neutral measure that determines who is right.  You just choose a side and if you are a true believer convince yourself that your side is the right one and the other is not.

Such a waste of time.......its like student government in high school where so little mattered so much......the real problem now being that the sides have guns and are willing to hurt each other to enforce their vision of right.

A plague on both their houses.

Most government bureaucrats only masterbate with one hand at a time...

( Not really. The other hand is always holding the drink or ciggy or computer mouse or,....ummm, well: YOU know.. )

Why did Hellen Kellar only masturbate with one hand? she could moan with the other one.

I'm thinking the side that favors killing babies in the womb,mutilating the genitals of confused women and men and children,now who think they want either an'addadicktome' or a 'takeadickoffame',and wants open borders is NOT my side. A lot more I want no part of associated with that side but if a listed it all we'd be here all night...

Let's not forget that Ukrainian president Poroshenko has been an Agency asset at least back to 2006.

FACT and JCN are most likely tail-chasing operations designed to keep those who follow them involved and wasting time going around in circles.

I have nothing about going around in circles, so long as it's a nice day and I'm out golfing.

Other than that, there's going to be nothing to see here.

I'm hoping that this develoves into the 'steel cage death match' that it has always had the potential to become.  

"You lie and investigate/charge me; I lie and investigate/charge you".

There could be major derivatives of this...

Russia/Ukraine – Crimea (If it ever went to court Russia would lose).

As successor states to the Soviet Union, both Ukraine and Russia are signatories to the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE). Adopted in Helsinki in 1975, the document sought to promote détente during an era of Cold War geopolitical tensions in Europe.

In the same respect, Spain's claim to Gibraltar has also been signed away.
