A new report revealed on Monday that two Republican Senators are now asking the Justice Department to investigate recent claims that Democrats colluded with the Ukrainian government to dig up dirt on Donald Trump in 2016.
According to The Washington Times, Senators Ron Johnson (WI) and Charles E. Grassley (IA) reached out to Attorney General William Barr and asked him to provide more information on alleged Ukrainian attempts to undermine Trump’s presidential campaign.
The Times state that both Grassley and Johnson believe that Democratic consultant Alexandra Chalupa worked with the Ukrainians on opposition research regarding Trump.
The two Senators also reportedly want more information regarding alleged interactions Joe Biden has had with the Ukrainians.
“Ukrainian efforts abetted by a U.S. political party to interfere in the 2016 election should not be ignored,” the senators wrote in their letter to Barr. “Such allegations of corruption deserve due scrutiny, and the American people have a right to know when foreign forces attempted to undermine our Democrat processes.”
