Alexandra Chalupa, an operative paid by the Democratic National Committee (DNC), asked the Ukrainian embassy in Washington for dirt on Trump-campaign chairman Paul Manafort in 2016, the embassy confirmed in a statement to The Hill.
While the embassy denies having helped the operative, a former embassy worker told The Hill’s John Solomon that the embassy helped Chalupa knowing full well that she was working to help elect then-candidate Hillary Clinton and defeat then-candidate Donald Trump.
Ambassador Valeriy Chaly, in written answers to Solomon, said that Chalupa asked the Ukrainian government for information on Manafort’s dealings inside Ukraine. Chalupa tried to arrange for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to comment about Manafort’s ties to Russia during a 2016 visit to Washington, Chaly said.
“The Embassy got to know Ms. Chalupa because of her engagement with Ukrainian and other diasporas in Washington D.C., and not in her DNC capacity. We’ve learned about her DNC involvement later,” Chaly said in a statement to The Hill. “We were surprised to see Alexandra’s interest in Mr. Paul Manafort’s case. It was her own cause. The Embassy representatives unambiguously refused to get involved in any way, as we were convinced that this is a strictly U.S. domestic matter.
“All ideas floated by Alexandra were related to approaching a Member of Congress with a purpose to initiate hearings on Paul Manafort or letting an investigative journalist ask President Poroshenko a question about Mr. Manafort during his public talk in Washington, D.C.,” Chaly said.
