Timeline in Ukraine Probe Casts Doubt on Giuliani's Biden Claim

Timeline in Ukraine Probe Casts Doubt on Giuliani’s Biden Claim
By Stephanie Baker and Daryna Krasnolutska , 5/7/2019, 12:00:01 AM
But if that was Biden’s aim, he was more than a year late, based on a timeline laid out by a former Ukrainian official and in Ukrainian documents.

The official described to Bloomberg details about the country’s political dynamic in the run-up to early 2016 when Biden, then the U.S. vice president, threatened to hold up U.S. funding to Ukraine unless it cracked down on corruption. Biden’s chief demand was the ouster of a top Ukrainian prosecutor who he said had been ineffective. The episode has come under the spotlight in the last week because at one point, that prosecutor had been investigating a natural gas company where Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, sat on the board and received substantial compensation.

There’s little question that the Bidens’ paths in Ukraine held the potential for conflict, and in a tweet last week, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said the U.S. should investigate the matter. But what has received less attention is that at the time Biden made his ultimatum, the probe into the company -- Burisma Holdings, owned by Mykola Zlochevsky -- had been long dormant, according to the former official, Vitaliy Kasko.

“There was no pressure from anyone from the U.S. to close cases against Zlochevsky,” Kasko said in an interview last week. “It was shelved by Ukrainian prosecutors in 2014 and through 2015.”

TAPPER: If Obama pressured a foreign leader to look into Don Jr, would you not find that inappropriate?

MNUCHIN: What I find inappropriate is Biden's son doing business in Ukraine

T: So it's okay for Don Jr & Ivanka but not for Biden?

M: I really don't want to go into details

Leshchenko practically BEGGING to testify before the House!


As a person who has had direct experience of many of these events around @RudyGiuliani, I express my readiness to testify to the U.S. Congress about what has been happening for the past 6 months in the gray zone of US-Ukraine relations. Here is my piece https://www.washingtonpost.com/gdpr-consent/?destination=%2fopinions%2f2019%2f09%2f21%2fwhy-is-rudy-giuliani-trying-drag-my-countrys-president-into-trumps-reelection-campaign%2f%3f

A little more...interesting timing


Giuliani was working in Ukraine 2017-18. In April 2018, he joins Trump’s legal team. In May 2018 Ukraine stops cooperating with Mueller investigation. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/giuliani-works-for-foreign-clients-while-serving-as-trumps-attorney/2018/07/09/e21554ae-7988-11e8-80be-6d32e182a3bc_story.html

And the real reason Twitler wanted dirt on Biden...payback for Manafort arrest

Former Trump aide approved 'black ops' to help Ukraine president
Thu 5 Apr 2018 11.00 EDT
Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort authorised a secret media operation on behalf of Ukraine’s former president featuring “black ops”, “placed” articles in the Wall Street Journal and US websites and anonymous briefings against Hillary Clinton.

The project was designed to boost the reputation of Ukraine’s then leader, Viktor Yanukovych. It was part of a multimillion-dollar lobbying effort carried out by Manafort on behalf of Yanukovych’s embattled government, emails and documents reveal.

The strategies included:

• Proposing to rewrite Wikipedia entries to smear a key opponent of the then Ukrainian president.

• Setting up a fake thinktank in Vienna to disseminate viewpoints supporting Yanukovych.

• A social media blitz “aimed at targeted audiences in Europe and the US”.

• Briefing journalists from the rightwing website Breitbart to attack Clinton when she was US secretary of state.

Manafort’s Ukraine strategy anticipated later efforts by the Kremlin and its troll factory to use Twitter and Facebook to discredit Clinton and to help Trump win the 2016 US election. The material seen by the Guardian dates from 2011 to 2013.
