Journalist Solomon Presents Opportunity To Expose Anti-Trump Coup Plotters in Ukraine

April 29, 2019 (EIRNS)—The Obama-Clinton operation against U.S. President Donald Trump may face strangulation, now that Ukrainian voters have ejected the corrupt Petro Poroshenko. It now appears possible to capitalize on the evidence of crimes and the phony “Russiagate” laundered through Ukraine in 2016, which evidence had been smothered under Poroshenko and Obama State Department operatives.

Investigative journalist John Solomon, writing in The Hill April 7, reports that Kostiantyn Kulyk, Deputy Chief of the Prosecutor General’s Legal Cooperation Department, told Solomon that he and other senior law enforcement personnel had tried unsuccessfully since last year to get visas from the U.S. Embassy in Kiev to deliver their evidence to Washington.

“The U.S. ambassador blocked us from obtaining a visa,” Kulyk told Solomon. He wrote that a half-dozen senior Ukrainian officials told him they have evidence, which includes:

Two sworn statements from Ukrainian officials admitting that their agency tried to get Hillary Clinton elected. The effort included leaking in 2016 a ledger showing payments Paul Manafort, who had just become Trump campaign chair. The leak was used to force Manafort’s resignation, and was conduited to the Justice Department’s Bruce Ohr, by his wife Nellie, according to Solomon’s follow-up story on April 25. Nellie Ohr was working on the Russia file for Fusion GPS, which had hired former MI6 agent Christopher Steele to produce the Russiagate dossier against Trump, commissioned by the Clinton campaign.

Financial records showing a Ukrainian natural gas company routed more than $3 million to American accounts tied to Hunter Biden, younger son of Joe Biden, who managed U.S.-Ukraine relations for the Obama Administration. Biden’s son served on the board of Ukraine’s natural gas company, Burisma Holdings.

Records that then-Vice President Joe Biden pressured Ukrainian officials in March 2016 to fire the prosecutor who oversaw the investigation of Burisma and planned to interview Hunter Biden.

Ukrainian officials told Solomon they don’t want to hand the evidence to FBI agents working in Ukraine, because they consider the FBI has a close relationship to the U.S. Embassy and Ukraine’s Anti-Corruption Bureau, NABU. “It is no secret in Ukrainian political circles that the NABU was created with American help and tried to exert influence during the U.S. presidential election,” Kulyk told Solomon. Efforts to use other individuals to get evidence out of Ukraine failed. One successful delivery of Ukrainian allegations to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan received no response, Solomon writes.

Solomon also reports that a court in Ukraine formally concluded that law enforcement officials there illegally tried to intervene in the 2016 U.S. election by leaking documents on Manafort’s business dealings after he was named Trump’s campaign chairman. And Nellie Ohr, senior researcher from Fusion GPS, testified last year that some of Fusion GPS’s research on Trump-Russia ties came from a Ukrainian parliamentarian.

Solomon concludes, “The only question is why the U.S. government so far hasn’t taken an interest—and whether Attorney General Barr will change that.”
