John Solomon, an opinion contributor to The Hill, lays out the results of a meeting between Obama White House officials and the Ukrainian authorities. Solomon spoke to multiple participants in the meeting and viewed memos from the time to bring us the story.

“The agenda suggested the purpose was training and coordination. But Ukrainian participants said it didn’t take long — during the meetings and afterward — to realize the Americans’ objectives included two politically hot investigations: one that touched Vice President Joe Biden’s family and one that involved a lobbying firm linked closely to then-candidate Trump,” Solomon wrote.

Andrii Telizhenko, who was at the meeting, told Solomon that the Obama officials “kept talking about how important it was that all of our anti-corruption efforts be united.” Telizhenko at the time was a political officer at the Ukraine’s embassy in Washington, D.C. He said U.S. officials said during the meeting that they wanted to see a 2014 investigation into payments made from Ukraine’s Russia-backed Party of Regions to U.S. citizens, including Paul Manafort, reopened. At the time of the payments, Manafort was a lobbyist. Manafort would be hired to then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign in March 2016.

The 2014 investigation was closed without charges filed against Manafort. Telizhenko told Solomon he didn’t remember if Manafort’s name was mentioned during the meeting with White House officials, but he remembers the investigation being brought up.

“It was definitely the case that led to the charges against Manafort and the leak to U.S. media during the 2016 election,” Telizhenko said.

Another participant in the meetings, Nazar Kholodnytskyy, told Solomon he didn’t attend all the meetings in January 2016 and couldn’t remember the specific cases that were mentioned. But he did say he thought it “was extremely suspicious” that after these meetings, a ledger showing payments to Manafort from the Party of Regions suddenly became public knowledge. The existence of the ledger was released 10 days after Manafort was promoted to Trump’s campaign chairman.


The Obama administration tried to clean its own mess. Manafort was working for Hilalry Clinton in Ukraine. This is why Obama's Whitehouse counsel was indicted by Mueller. And then the Obama administration tried to shift the blame of what Manafort did in Ukraine on their behalf towards Trump.

As we can see there was no scandal that happened under the Obama administration. lol

  • First they send Hillary to Ukraine then Hillary messed it up by hiring manafort who worked for pro russian group than tried to hide this fact. But now we all know about. Just like we now know Obama allowed them Russians to interfere in us election in 2014 and like he allowed Russia to take over Ukraine.
