I was not surprised that "BizPac," and Samantha Chang are far far-right Trump appologists.

If there was "no problem" then why won't they release the tapes?

The El Cheato team is making Richard Nixon look like a Boy Scout in comparison.

So, last 14 May, 2019 the Ukrainians were very clear that the Trump gang was attempting to force the "investigation" of the Bidden clan for political gain.

If trump is innocent, why shouldn’t the Intelligence committee hear from the IG or the witness? That’s the law, which is being ignored!

Oh, forgot...trump doesn’t pay attention or follow our laws!

Once again, trump looks guilty, and his story keeps changing, as all of his stories do...when you lie, you have to keep remembering what you said previously...and stories will change.

Exactly, Fake News obviously isn't reporting Trump has admitted as much now. He needs to be impeached, never been more comfortable in saying that. Then locked up. As one Reporter said on Friday about Trump, " he lives in an ethical dead zone."

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko denied an unsourced Washington Post report claiming President Trump had pressured Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden’s alleged abuse of power during his eight years as Barack Obama’s vice president.

 

In an interview with TV station Hromadske, Minister Prystaiko flatly denied the rumor. He also underscored that “we are an independent state” and not a puppet of either Democrats or Republicans.

 

“I know what the conversation was about, and I think there was no pressure,” Prystaiko said. “There was talk. Leaders have the right to discuss any problems that exist. This conversation was long, friendly, and it touched on a lot of questions, including those requiring serious answers.”

Moreover, Prystaiko said he doesn’t want his country to be used as a prop in the political tussle between Democrats and Republicans. He said Ukraine will work with whichever party is in office without prejudice — as it always has.

 

“Those people who are engaged in Ukrainian-American relations understand that we have always tried to appreciate assistance from both parties,” the foreign minister said. “This assistance allowed us to ensure that with the change of administration, we will not change the priorities in relations with the United States.”

 

Here’s the back story: In 2014, Joe’s son Hunter Biden was on the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, an energy company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch.

 

According to the New York Times, while he was vice president, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees if Ukraine didn’t fire its top prosecutor, who was investigating the owner of Burisma Holdings.

 

If true, this was clearly a conflict of interest — a claim the Left has repeatedly hurled at President Trump without evidence.

 

According to gleeful reports from the Washington Post and the New York Times, a “whistleblower” without direct knowledge claims that Trump had pressured Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky (during a July 25 phone call) to investigate Joe Biden’s alleged abuse of power.

 

Naturally, the media ran with the story despite the fact that the anonymous whistleblower did not have direct knowledge of the communication.

So basically, this entire “bombshell” report is more innuendo from an anonymous third party.

 

CNN Ukraine whistleblower did not have direct knowledge

 

Meanwhile, three Democrats are breathlessly demanding an investigation into whether President Trump and his attorney Rudy Giuliani tried to pressure Ukrainian authorities to investigate Joe Biden.

 

The Washington Post promoted this narrative to suggest that Trump was asking a foreign power to interfere in the 2020 election.

 

President Trump and his attorney Giuliani shot down the Washington Post report as yet another failed left-wing attempt to undermine Trump.

 

The president slammed the “Fake News Media” and its well-documented history of debunked anti-Trump narratives.

 

Now that Robert Mueller’s fruitless “Russia collusion” investigation is closed — with no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion — a bombshell new probe suggests there was election collusion between Hillary Clinton and Ukraine.

 

In March 2019, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General launched a criminal investigation into a Clinton-Ukraine collusion plot to rig the 2016 election in Hillary’s favor.

 

The plot implicated Barack Obama’s alleged attempt to influence the 2016 election in favor of Hillary, his former secretary of state:

 

“Lutsenko accused the Obama-era U.S. embassy in 2016 of interfering in his ability to prosecute corruption cases, saying the U.S. ambassador gave him a list of defendants that he would not be allowed to pursue and then refused to cooperate in an early investigation into the alleged misappropriation of U.S. aid in Ukraine.”

 

In September 2016 — Hillary Clinton met with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko (see video).

 

During the meeting, Poroshenko profusely thanked Hillary for her past support of Ukraine and for her pledge to support Ukraine if she became president. That was two months before the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

 

Sure sounds like collusion.

 

 


Well looks like the U Foreign Minister and SC (right wing story teller) were proved wrong by Trump today when he said he did talk about Biden. Our poor far right they post the same subject many times, and many times it blows up on them. Truth in the end wins out, and it will here. Trump did it.

"Sure sounds like collusion."

 

Really?  How's that?  And besides, we all know collusion isn't illegal.  Right?

 

Did the Ukraine government help Hillary to win?  Did they flood US social media with lies and distortion to help Hilary?  Did the Ukraine prez say, "Of course we want Hillary to win"?  Nope.....didn't think so....

Well, Putin denied Russian did not meddle in the 2016 elections, even through there is overwhelming evidence that this did happen. I guess you believed Putin too? You do know that Ukraine's government has direct ties to Russia? They basically dance to Putin's tune. So, you've decided you're going to believe the President of the Ukraine (ie Putin) over our National Intelligence? Oh my, what is happening here?

How many theads is he going to start on thiis same topic? He did the same thing with Hillary during the 2016 campaign.

 

As usual, I suspect the accuracy of this article. However, even if there's an element of truth, it just illustrates how powerful $250 Million in U.S. Military Aid to Urkraine can be.
