The investigation group Watchdog plans to file a complaint to the Federal Elections Commission as it confirms that the Democratic National Committee violated the federal law, requesting the investigation of the opposition of the Donald Trump election campaign from the foreign government. It is reported at the article of the affluent American edition The Hill.
According to the article, the Conservative group of the Foundation of Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) launched in 2014 by the former U.S. attorney Matthew Whitaker plans to claim that the political consultant Alexandra Chalupa improperly tried to start the investigation on the formed chairman of Trump's election campaign Paul Manafort from the Ukrainian officials.
“Federal law and Commission regulations prohibit any person from knowingly requesting, accepting or receiving contributions or donations of money or other value things from a foreign citizens,” the complaint stated.
FACT confirms that Chalupa violated the ban by “knowingly requesting” a “valuable in-kind contribution in the form of the opposition research and information on a Trump campaign official from a foreign citizen on behalf of the Democratic National Committee.”
The complaint is based on an investigation by Politico, which found out that Chalupa “met with highest officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington truing to expose the ties between Trump, the chairman of his election campaign Paul Manafort and Russia', the article stated.
The FACT complaint is the part of the efforts of the conservatives to disprove the confirmation that the Trump's officials had the improper connections with the Russians.
Earlier, the US President Donald Trump claimed that Ukraine attempted to sabotage his election campaign, supporting the canidate from the Democratic Party.
