  • Vanity: Ukrainian Story Has Sytnik on Audiotape re Hillary's 2016 Campaign

    11/16/2019 6:17:17 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 23 replies
    This is from a Ukrainian March, 2019 story that has Sytnik ON AUDIOTAPE admitting that he helped Hillary in the 2016 elections. Sytnik was the Ukrainian head of anti-corruption task force. Thought some journalists here could investigate and turn this into 'real news': I do not know how, but the Americans have received an audio recording of Mr. Sytnik's conversation: he is resting with his family and friends and discussing how Hillary would like to help. Part of this audio recording was made public by MP Borislav Rosenblatt. And he gave me a statement. Honestly, I was uncomfortable with taking...
  • Obama engaged Ukraine to give the Russian collusion narrative an early boost (and 2016 Hillary)

    As Donald Trump began his meteoric rise to the presidency, the Obama White House summoned Ukrainian authorities to Washington to coordinate ongoing anti-corruption efforts inside Russia’s most critical neighbor. The January 2016 gathering, confirmed by multiple participants and contemporaneous memos, brought some of Ukraine’s top corruption prosecutors and investigators face to face with members of former President Obama’s National Security Council (NSC), FBI, State Department and Department of Justice (DOJ). 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...

    Former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates testified in federal court Thursday against Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig about the ex-counsel's Ukraine-related work for Paul Manafort, Politico reported. Gates was a top lieutenant to Manafort, a former Trump campaign chairman, for approximately 10 years. During that time, Manafort supervised a 2012 review conducted by Craig of the abuse-of-power trial of ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, according to Politico. While the review was presented as an independent probe of the trial, it was commissioned by Manafort's primary client, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, and bankrolled by Victor Pinchuk, a steel oligarch and...

    The trial of a former White House counsel in the Obama administration was postponed suddenly on Tuesday amid concerns about the jury selection process. Politico first reported that U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is overseeing the case, announced she may have violated Gregory Craig's right to a public trial by limiting public access to jury selection. Proceedings in the trial began Monday, with opening statements expected to take place Tuesday morning. Politico reported that Jackson thought the trial might have to be postponed to November to find another group to lead jury selection. Politico noted that the process...

    Former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig will go on trial Aug. 12 on charges that he lied to and concealed information from the Justice Department about his work for Ukraine, according to a judge’s scheduling order issued Friday. **SNIP** Federal prosecutors from the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington are now handling the Craig case, which centers around allegations that he should have registered as a foreign lobbyist for legal work he did starting in 2012 to defend Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s jailing of a political opponent. Craig, 74, has pleaded not guilty to the charges. His lawyers earlier this...

    PART 1 – OBAMA AND CLINTON COUNSEL INDICTED – Today the shoe is on the other foot, and I dare say it looks good. Chief White House Counsel in the Obama and Bill Clinton Administrations has been indicted for multiple untruths in the Mueller Probe. However, the Justice Department received no cooperation from those involved with Greg Craig. It seems to me they thought, although Craig told multiple untruths, they were above the law. Craig’s attorneys said, “Mr. Craig is not guilty of any charge and the government’s stubborn insistence on prosecuting Mr. Craig is a misguided abuse of prosecutorial...

In a statement to the Washington Post, attorneys William W. Taylor III and William Murphy said the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington will proffer charges related to Mr. Craig’s work with Ukrainian politicians and disgraced Trump-campaign figure Paul Manafort at the behest of the Justice Department’s national security division.

    Ukrainian law enforcement officials believe they have evidence of wrongdoing by American Democrats and their allies in Kiev, ranging from 2016 election interference to obstructing criminal probes. But, they say, they’ve been thwarted in trying to get the Trump Justice Department to act. **SNIP** In another instance, he said, Ukrainian authorities gathered evidence that money paid to an American Democrat allegedly was hidden by Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) during the 2016 election under pressure from U.S. officials. “In the course of this investigation, we found that there was a situation during which influence was exerted on the NABU, so...

    “Top Obama-linked lawyer (Gregory B. Craig) on Mueller chopping block, could be first Dem indicted under probe." (BizPac Review, March 19)“Oh well, ho hum,” say many bemused Cuba-watchers, “better late than never.”Because you see, amigos: Gregory Craig’s shenanigans with Manafort and Yanukoych seem like mild mischief compared to his shenanigans on behalf of Bill Clinton, Dan Rather and  Fidel Castro. At the time of these later-named shenanigans, the aforementioned president of the U.S. (Clinton) and the megastar of the U.S. media (Rather) were dutifully and cravenly fulfilling the express wishes of the mass-murdering, terror-sponsoring dictator whose lifelong craving was to nuke...

    If we needed more proof (atop the media panic) that President Trump nominated the right SCOTUS candidate here it is: “Kavanaugh represented, on a pro bono basis, six-year-old Elian Gonzalez after the Immigration and Naturalization Service decided to return him to Cuba. Kavanaugh was among a series of lawyers who sought legal injunctions to stop INS…from sending the boy back to Cuba…” Whoops! I already hear the caterwauling about “separating immigrant children from their parents!” So let’s clear that up first: The genuine issue during the Elian Gonzalez circus had NOTHING to do with “parental rights,” as the Castro/Fake News...

The lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by the group Cause of Action (CoA) names 12 federal agencies that delayed the release of documents so officials could consult with White House under a new process established in spring 2009. The process, which gave White House officials review authority over documents that federal agencies wanted to release that mentioned the White House or presidential aides,...
