Over the weekend, The New York Times ran an allegedly “bombshell” report claiming that President Donald Trump’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., met with a Russian lawyer last year after she claimed to be in possession of damaging information regarding then-Democrat primary candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As was correctly noted later that same day by Michael Walsh of the New York Post, “No campaign in its right mind would turn down an offer of information on their opponent. That is what opposition research is all about. You can bet Hillary wouldn’t have hung up on the person who claimed to have dirt on The Donald.”
In fact, she didn’t.
Last year, veteran DNC operative and former Clinton administration employee Alexandra Chalupa schemed with a network of “investigative journalists, government officials and private intelligence operatives” in Ukraine to dig up opposition research on then-GOP primary candidate Trump, according to an in-depth profile of her actions published by Politico in January.
Chalupa was especially interested in Paul Manafort, the political consultant whom Trump hired as the chairman of his campaign in March of that year, Politico reported.
Here’s the kicker: “She occasionally shared her findings with officials from the DNC and Clinton’s campaign.“
“The day after Manafort’s hiring was revealed, she briefed the DNC’s communications staff on Manafort, Trump and their ties to Russia, according to an operative familiar with the situation,” Politico reported.
But Chalupa went way beyond just transferring intelligence from a foreign agency to Democrat Party officials tied directly to Hillary Clinton. She also unsuccessfully tried to arrange a meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to talk about Manafort.
All this means that if President Trump is guilty of colluding with the Russians just because his son met with a Russian lawyer who claimed to be in possession of damaging information on Clinton, then Clinton herself and everyone at the DNC are equally guilty of colluding with the Ukrainians. It’s as simple as that.
Though in all honesty, the real colluders appear to be the liberal media, who have plotted for months on end to use the Russia-collusion story to dismantle Trump’s presidency, but who have yet to unearth a single bit of solid evidence.
