“Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office.

“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.”
