The U.S. ambassador to Ukraine under Barack Obama gave the Ukrainian general prosecutor in 2016 a list of “untouchables” who should not be prosecuted or investigated.
Yuriy Lutsenko explained in an interview with The Hill in March 2019 that U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch gave him a list of people who should be exempt from prosecution in Ukraine as soon as he was appointed general prosecutor of Ukraine in 2016, Lutsenko said.
The former general prosecutor of Ukraine, Viktor Shokin, was fired in March 2016 as a result of pressure from then-Vice President Joe Biden while investigating the company where the politician’s son Hunter Biden worked.
All this happened in the middle of the 2016 presidential race and the main organization protected by this list issued by the Obama administration was under the NGO conglomerate of speculator George Soros, AntAC (Anti-Corruption Action Center).
AntAC is a nonprofit organization co-funded by the Obama administration and speculator George Soros that since 2012 has received 59 percent of its budget of nearly $1.7 million from state and justice-related budgets and nearly $290,000 from the Soros International Renaissance Foundation, according to the group’s donor disclosure records.
According to the Ukrainian prosecutor, the U.S. Embassy wanted to stop the ongoing investigation into this organization suspected of improperly diverting $4.4 million in U.S. funds to fight corruption in Ukraine.
“The implied message to Ukraine’s prosecutors was clear: Don’t target AntAC in the middle of an America presidential election in which Soros was backing Hillary Clinton to succeed another Soros favorite, Barack Obama, Ukrainian officials said,” investigative journalist for The Hill John Solomon wrote.
Solomon further revealed that AntAC was collaborating with FBI agents investigating the commercial activities of then-Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
The Democratic National Committee asked Ukraine for ‘dirt’ on President Trump
The Ukrainian Embassy in Washington said in May that a member of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) requested ‘dirt’ on Donald Trump’s campaign director, Paul Manafort, and even tried to implicate the Ukrainian president, according to The Hill.
Ambassador Valeriy Chaly’s office said that DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa sought information from the Ukrainian government about Paul Manafort’s dealings within the country in the hope of forcing the issue before Congress.
According to The Hill, Chalupa even tried to force Ukrainian President Peter Poroshenko to comment on Manafort’s alleged Russian ties during a visit to the United States amid an election campaign.
“All ideas floated by Alexandra were related to approaching a Member of Congress with a purpose to initiate hearings on Paul Manafort or letting an investigative journalist ask President Poroshenko a question about Mr. Manafort during his public talk in Washington, D.C.,” the Ukrainian ambassador explained in a written response to an interview with The Hill.
But the DNC was not alone in using its influence over the Ukrainian executive to weaken Donald Trump in the midst of the electoral race.
“The Obama White House invited Ukrainian law enforcement officials to a meeting in January 2016 as Trump rose in the polls on his improbable path to the presidency,” Solomon wrote in April.
“The meeting led to U.S. requests to the Ukrainians to help investigate Manafort, setting in motion a series of events that led to the Ukrainians leaking the documents about Manafort in May 2016,” he added.
It was recently learned from Joe Biden himself that the former Ukrainian general prosecutor was fired as a result of his pressure on the Ukrainian executive.
Biden told a group of foreign policy specialists at the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018 how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 to fire Shokin immediately or the Obama administration would withdraw $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees.
More and more evidence is emerging that seems to prove that there was collusion, interference or pressure in Ukraine, but these were carried out by the Democratic Party, its donors, such as the controversial George Soros, and Obama’s White House with the aim of raising Hillary Clinton to the presidency of the country.
