John Solomon Breaks Old Story: All Roads on Russiagate Lead Back to British Coup in Ukraine

March 21, 2019 (EIRNS)—Investigative reporter John Solomon has written a bombshell article in The Hill, reopening the Ukraine file concerning the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.

Solomon reports that the Ukraine Prosecutor General has now opened a case about the intentional leaking of records of Paul Manafort’s Ukraine payments in 2016, in order to damage the Trump campaign and assist the election of Hillary Clinton. “Ukraine Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by release ... of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort records to help Clinton’s campaign,” Solomon writes. The parliamentarian who released the tape also secured a court ruling to the effect that the leak of the so-called Manafort black ledger constituted, an “illegal intrusion into the American election campaign.” The court in Kiev charged that Artem Sytnyk, who led Ukraine’s anti-corruption efforts, and Serhiy Leshchenko, a funding product of George Soros and Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk, were responsible for the leak of payments to Manafort.

Paul Manafort resigned as Chairman of the Trump Campaign on August 19, 2016 following widespread claims that he was joined at the hip with Vladimir Putin in a media barrage featured in Christopher Steele’s dodgy dossier, and led by Steele’s early most favored journalist, Michael Isikoff. Isikoff in turn was promoting a direct feed from Alexandra Chalupa, Hillary Clinton’s favorite follower of Ukrainian Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera, then employed by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) as its main opposition researcher concerning Donald Trump. Politico had documented in 2017 that Chalupa had a direct line to Ukrainian state intelligence.

Lutsenko also states, according to Solomon, that he was given a “no prosecute” list by the U.S. Ambassador concerning what he apparently believes is the corrupt diversion of funds paid by the State Department and destined for the Prosecutor General’s office. The clear implication of these claims is that the money was paid to various Ukrainians providing intelligence to the Ukrainian/State Department black propaganda operation against the Trump Campaign. In addition, Solomon reports that the current U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, an Obama holdover, has told U.S. Embassy employees and Ukrainian officials that they need not pay attention to Trump since he is going to be impeached. On March 20, former U.S. Attorney for Washington, D.C. Joseph diGenova demanded Yovanovitch’s immediate recall by President Trump, in an interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News.

The first round of Ukraine’s Presidential elections occurs on March 31, and what relationship breaking this story at this time has to that election is unclear. Current President Petro Poroshenko is trailing the comedian Volodymyr Zelensk badly in the polls.

Solomon’s bombshell also includes the statement:

“We now have strong evidence that retired British spy Christopher Steele began his quest in what ultimately became the infamous Russia collusion dossier with a series of conversations with top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr between December of 2015 and February 2016 about securing evidence against Manafort.”

This would explain why Steele was being paid as an FBI informant as of February 2016.

As was demonstrated at Manafort’s trial, the corruption charges against him were solely based on his activities in Ukraine in support of turning that country toward Europe and away from Russia. The Russia! Russia! Russia! narrative about him was a complete British/Obama/Clinton Campaign fabrication. Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk contributed millions to both the British intelligence outpost known as the Atlantic Council and the Clinton Foundation and is an extremely important player in the British operations against Trump. EIR’s work on the coup against Trump has demonstrated again and again that the filthy British operation run against the President is staffed by a group which might be called, “Veterans of the Ukraine coup.” Not only was Christopher Steele being paid as an informant of the FBI concerning Ukraine, he was also funneling his dirty memos to the State Department’s Victoria Nuland, the former Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs who was the U.S. case officer for the coup. StopFake, the anti-Russia censorship and InfoWar network associated with the Chalupa sisters, is a full partner of the British military’s Integrity Initiative information warfare operation. That operation grew out of a British strategic determination for regime change in Russia following the Ukraine coup.

StopFake has repeatedly targeted the Schiller Institute and Lyndon LaRouche. The Chalupa sisters were deeply implicated in each step of the British operation against Trump, publicly campaigning, for example, for Electoral College members not to vote for Trump. Kurt Volker, the present U.S. envoy on Ukraine, and David Kramer, the John McCain Institute employee tagged by Christopher Steele and Sir Andrew Wood to secure the publication of the entire dirty Steele dossier following the election, have been demonstrated by recent revelations, to be fully enmeshed in both the coup in Ukraine and the operation against Trump. Writer George Eliason has detailed significant elements of this operation, including the extremely intriguing claim that in accepting the DNC and CrowdStrike analysis of the alleged DNC hack, Special Counsel Robert Mueller actually indicted Ukrainian intelligence, rather than Russia’s GRU since the Fancy Bear persona is a creation of Ukrainian intelligence.

Pulling this thread will go very far indeed in demonstrating the complete British intelligence genesis of the coup against President Trump.
