Politico: Ukrainians Efforts to Sabotage Trump in 2016 election backfire

Ub>Politico-Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire
Kiev officials are scrambling to make amends with the president-elect after quietly working to boost Clinton.

Politico a Democrat leaning newspaper reported this a week after the 2016 election:
Donald Trump wasn’t the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country.

Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.

Now we know why Democrats want to bury and keep this story out of the spotlight.


  • Need to go back two years and eleven months to find a story that supports your conspiracies, Anunaki?
  • I read this article too 2 years ago. Thanks for bringing it back up. @SaremChuuk how is this a conspiracy when a liberal organization like Politico, did the investigation ?

    This is what we know so far. Democrats did seek foreign help in 2016 to undermine the 2016 election. Whats more a government that was lead by a pro-russia government in Ukraine did this. 2016 russian interference well here it is.

    Democrats and their supporters response: its ok for foreign governments to interfere as long as they are interfering on the Democrats side.

  • @SaremChuuk please answer. Without profanity or derogatory terms please. The floor is yours.
