Spicer: Democrats Colluded With Ukrainian Government During Election (The Washington Free Beacon)

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Monday accused Democrats of "collusion" with Ukraine during the election.

Spicer's comments were likely based on a January report by Politico about how some Ukrainian government officials sought to help Hillary Clinton and hurt Donald Trump, who they viewed as too friendly with their hostile neighbor Russia.

The report went on write that 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." Manafort ultimately did resign from the campaign.
