    CNN "fact" check

    This link is part of a fast and furious update chain, so it may not show the update I'm talking about:

    Fact check: Nunes claimed a former DNC staffer worked with Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on the Trump campaign

    Here's the text:

    Fact check: Nunes claimed a former DNC staffer worked with Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on the Trump campaign

    Republican Rep. Devin Nunes just claimed that Alexandra Chalupa, a former staffer for the Democratic National Committee “worked with Ukrainian embassy officials to spread dirt on the Trump Campaign.”

    Fact First: Chalupa denied the allegations in a 2017 statement to CNN.

    "During the 2016 US election, I was a part-time consultant for the DNC running an ethnic engagement program," Chalupa told CNN. "I was not an opposition researcher for the DNC, and the DNC never asked me to go to the Ukrainian Embassy to collect information.
    Multiple representatives from the Clinton campaign and the DNC have denied the charges, as has the Ukrainian embassy. "I ran the opposition press program for the Clinton campaign and I don't know what the hell they're talking about," said Zac Petkanas, a former Clinton staffer.

    Republicans, though, have seized on the fact that Chalupa did meet with representatives from the Ukrainian Embassy during the election, meetings that Chalupa says were about an "Immigrant Heritage Month women's networking event" she helped organize in June.


    So a republican claims a democrat did something. The "fact" is that the democrat didn't do it, because they denied doing it. Thanks CNN!

    Who are the first people you would want to meet to get involved with an "Immigrant Heritage Month" women's networking event? Why, members of the Ukrainian Embassy!

    Let's treat ourselves like we treat our fellow man. I'm moving my family to the Pine Ridge reservation. Who's with me?
