[Ed. – You mean the Democrats were the real colluders? Too funny.]
Multiple Democratic National Committee officials, former Clinton campaign officials and Democratic sources denied that the Democratic committee or Clinton campaign worked with the government of Ukraine to dig up dirt on Donald Trump and his top aides.
But multiple Democratic sources said that a DNC contractor, whose work included organizing political events for Ukranian-Americans, did tell DNC operatives that Ukrainian officials would be willing to deliver damaging information on Trump’s campaign and, most notably, Paul Manafort, his then-campaign head who has previously advised Viktor Yanukovych, the former Ukrainian President who has close ties to Moscow.
“These allegations are false. Period,” said Adrienne Watson, spokeswoman for the Democratic National Committee.
Lauren Dillon, research director at the DNC, also denied any contact with any foreign governments, including Ukraine.
“I’ve been director of research at the DNC for four years and had zero contact with foreign governments,” she said.
