US Ukraine ambassador accused of obstructing investigation of Biden's alleged corruption
In the Wall Street Journal Thursday, there was a report that “Trump Ordered Ukraine Ambassador Removed After Complaints From Giuliani, Others” The reporters believed that Guiliani complained to the President that Ambassador, Marie L. Yovanovitch obstructed “his efforts to persuade Kyiv to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.” The story left out a critical piece of information. A senior Ukranian prosecutor complained about her also. Apparently, the Ambassador prevented him from presenting evidence of Democratic Party and Hunter Biden wrongdoing to AG Barr.There seems to be a lot of people who are unwilling to look at the evidence of corruption if it is tied to Democrats.
Ambassador Yovanovitch is a career diplomat (since 1986) who was appointed by former President Obama to be the US representative to Ukraine in August 2016 and was removed by the present administration fired in late May of 2019.
Kostiantyn Kulyk deputy director of Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s International Legal Cooperation Dept. told John Solomon in April that for a year he’s been blocked from getting visas for himself and a team of senior law enforcement officials to go to the U.S. to deliver evidence of Democratic party wrongdoing during the 2016 election to the DOJ. The senior prosecutor said he never was able to make the trip because the visas were blocked by the U.S. Ambassador.
Kostiantyn Kulyk told John Solomon the evidence the Ukrainians had included:
- Sworn statements from two Ukrainian officials admitting that their agency tried to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The effort included leaking an alleged ledger showing payments to then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort;
- Contacts between Democratic figures in Washington and Ukrainian officials that involved passing along dirt on Donald Trump;
- Financial records showing a Ukrainian natural gas company routed more than $3 million to American accounts tied to Hunter Biden, younger son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, who managed U.S.-Ukrainian relations for the Obama administration. Biden’s son served on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma Holdings;
- Records that Vice President Biden pressured Ukrainian officials in March 2016 to fire the prosecutor who oversaw an investigation of Burisma Holdings and who planned to interview Hunter Biden about the financial transfers;
- Correspondence showing members of the State Department and U.S. embassy in Kiev interfered or applied pressure in criminal cases on Ukrainian soil;
- Disbursements of as much as $7 billion in Ukrainian funds that prosecutors believe may have been misappropriated or taken out of the country, including to the United States.
