Alexandra Chalupa, a Ukrainian-American who worked in the Clinton administration and was a consultant for the Democratic National Committee, is calling for Fox News host Tucker Carlson to be prosecuted for treason.
Chalupa took to social media to rant about a segment in which Carlson suggested Russian aggression toward Ukraine would be akin to China trying to interfere with Mexico.
“Imagine if Mexico fell under the direct control of China. We would see that as a threat,” Carlson explained in a segment earlier this week.
“There would be no reason for that,” he continued. “That’s how Russia views NATO control of Ukraine … and why wouldn’t they?”
Carlson has aggressively opposed war with Russia on behalf of what he calls “a small, corrupt nation called Ukraine.”

“This isn’t journalism, it’s an ongoing FARA violation,” she said, referring to the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938.
“Tucker Carlson needs to be prosecuted as an unregistered agent of the Russian Federation and treason under Article 3, Sec. 3, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution for aiding an enemy in hybrid warfare against the United States,” she continued.
It’s the kind of histrionics that would make Squad members blush. Maybe.

Progressive Journalist Glenn Greenwald points to a Politico article that reveals that Alexandra Chalupa worked in the White House Office of Public Liaison during the Clinton administration and was involved in Russiagate.
“This fascist woman calling for the treason prosecution of Tucker Carlson as a Russian agent isn’t just some random internet nut,” Greenwald tweeted.
“She’s a former Clinton WH official who worked with Ukrainian officials in 2016 on behalf of DNC to dig up dirt on Trump.”
Imprison your political enemies under sedition laws. Prosecute journalists for treason. Failing that, use state power to coerce Silicon Valley oligarchs to censor and ban your enemies from speaking on the internet*.

Chalupa was a DNC contractor who sought information on former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort; information she hoped to use to expose Manafort’s links to the country during the 2016 campaign.
“Donald Trump wasn’t the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country,” the Politico report reads. “Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office.”
Ukrainian Ambassador Valeriy Chaly described Chalupa’s efforts as blatant election interference.
“The embassy considered her requests an inappropriate solicitation of interference in the U.S. election,” Chaly wrote.
Working with foreigners to interfere in an American election? Sounds like… maybe treason?

The FEC this past July declined to pursue a case against Chalupa stating there was no probable cause to believe she and the DNC broke the law through their actions.
The DNC paid Alexandra Chalupa $412k from 2004-2016, along with gigs from other clients to engage expatriates.

Carlson has continued to criticize President Biden for saber rattling against nuclear-armed Russia.
“Apparently, Ukraine’s eastern border with Russia – unlike, say, our southern border with Mexico – is a sacred boundary created by God that must be protected at all costs, up to and including, American lives,” he said.
Opposing the loss of American lives in endless wars is now considered ‘treason’ by some.
