Democrats and their handmaidens in the mainstream media are in hysterics over the meeting Donald Trump Jr. had with a shady Russian lawyer, but they have completely ignored a real example of actual election interference.
Back in January, Politico, hardly members of the right-wing conspiracy, published an explosive report headlined “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire.” The report laid out how a Democratic National Committee operative worked with Ukrainian government officials to help Hillary Clinton and damage Donald Trump.
The operative, who according to Politico used to work at the Clinton White House, spearheaded the entire effort, meeting with Ukrainian officials at the Ukrainian embassy in Washington to discuss ways to go after former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
“She occasionally shared her findings with officials from the DNC and Clinton’s campaign,” the bombshell story stated.
To top it off, the operative claimed she gave guidance and off-the-record information to, “a lot of journalists who were writing about Manafort and Donald Trump’s potential ties to Russia.”
What’s worse, Trump Jr.’s meeting which he says yielded no useful information, or Team Clinton working with the Ukrainian government? And better yet, why didn’t news organizations extensively report on Ukrainian collusion? Politico did all the heavy lifting. All the other outlets had to do was follow up. They did not.
Was it because many of the so-called top news organizations in this country were exposed before the election as having colluded with the Clinton campaign? And meddling in foreign elections is such a big deal, why didn’t the mainstream media report that a Congressional investigation found that in 2014 the Obama State Department funded an effort to defeat our ally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu?
