Chris Cuomo: Oppo Research From Russia, Bad | Ukraine, Good

NTK has the story:

Jay Sekulow, a member of President Trump’s legal team, pointed out on CNN’s “New Day” Wednesday that Democratic National Committee (DNC) operatives had coordinated with the Ukrainian government to dig up opposition research on the Trump campaign.

“The Ukrainian government was giving information to the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s people on who? Donald Trump,” Sekulow said in a discussion about possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. “So we’re acting like this doesn’t happen, but it does.”

“Ukraine is not Russia,” CNN’s Chris Cuomo replied, implying it was all right for one campaign to get “opposition research” from a foreign power, but not the other.

Sekulow pushed back on Cuomo’s reasoning, saying “That’s not the law.”……

GATEWAY PUNDIT has a good recap of the Ukraine story:

As TGP previously reported, Hillary Clinton’s aides met with Ukrainian government officials and journalists specifically to dig up dirt on team Trump. The information gathered was then sent to the DNC and Hillary’s camp.

The media sycophants are however, silent over Hillary Clinton’s antics during the presidential election which makes Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting pale in comparison.

Politico reported back in January of 2017:

A Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington in an effort to expose ties between Trump, top campaign aide Paul Manafort and Russia, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.
The Ukrainian efforts had an impact in the race, helping to force Manafort’s resignation and advancing the narrative that Trump’s campaign was deeply connected to Ukraine’s foe to the east, Russia. But they were far less concerted or centrally directed than Russia’s alleged hacking and dissemination of Democratic emails.

But Andrii Telizhenko, who worked as a political officer in the Ukrainian Embassy under Shulyar, said she instructed him to help Chalupa research connections between Trump, Manafort and Russia. “Oksana said that if I had any information, or knew other people who did, then I should contact Chalupa,” recalled Telizhenko, who is now a political consultant in Kiev. “They were coordinating an investigation with the Hillary team on Paul Manafort with Alexandra Chalupa,” he said, adding “Oksana was keeping it all quiet,” but “the embassy worked very closely with” Chalupa.
