Everything Changes In The Ukraine Scandal If Trump Releases These Documents


Authored by John Solomon via JohnSolomonReports.com,

There are still wide swaths of documentation kept under wraps inside government agencies like the State Department that could substantially alter the public’s understanding of what has happened in the U.S.-Ukraine relationships now at the heart of the impeachment probe.

As House Democrats mull whether to pursue impeachment articles and the GOP-led Senate braces for a possible trial, here are 12 tranches of government documents that could benefit the public if President Trump ordered them released, and the questions these memos might answer.

  1. Daily intelligence reports from March through August 2019 on Ukraine’s new president Volodymyr Zelensky and his relationship with oligarchs and other key figures. What was the CIA, FBI and U.S. Treasury Department telling Trump and other agencies about Zelensky’s ties to oligarchs like Igor Kolomoisky, the former head of Privatbank, and any concerns the International Monetary Fund might have? Did any of these concerns reach the president’s daily brief (PDB) or come up in the debate around resolving Ukraine corruption and U.S. foreign aid? CNBCReuters and The Wall Street Journal all have done recent reporting suggesting there might have been intelligence and IMF concerns that have not been fully considered during the impeachment proceedings.
  2. State Department memos detailing conversations between former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko. He says Yovanovitch raised the names of Ukrainians she did not want to see prosecuted during their first meeting in 2016. She calls Lutsenko’s account fiction. But State Department officials admit the U.S. embassy in Kiev did pressure Ukrainian prosecutors not to target certain activists. Are there contemporaneous State Department memos detailing these conversations and might they illuminate the dispute between Lutsenko and Yovanovitch that has become key to the impeachment hearings?
  3. State Department memos on U.S. funding given to the George Soros-backed group the Anti-Corruption Action Centre. There is documentary evidence that State provided funding to this group, that Ukrainian prosecutor sought to investigate whether that aid was spent properly and that the U.S. embassy pressured Ukraine to stand down on that investigation. How much total did State give to this group? Why was a federal agency giving money to a Soros-backed group? What did taxpayers get for their money and were they any audits to ensure the money was spent properly? Were any of Ukrainian prosecutors’ concerns legitimate?
  4. The transcripts of Joe Biden’s phone calls and meetings with Ukraine’s president and prime minister from April 2014 to January 2017 when Hunter Biden served on the board of the natural gas company Burisma Holdings. Did Burisma or Hunter Biden ever come up in the calls? What did Biden say when he urged Ukraine to fire the prosecutor overseeing an investigation of Burisma? Did any Ukrainian officials ever comment on Hunter Biden’s role at the company? Was any official assessment done by U.S. agencies to justify Biden’s threat of withholding $1 billion in U.S. aid if Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin wasn’t fired?
  5. All documents from an Office of Special Counsel whistleblower investigation into unusual energy transactions in Ukraine. The U.S. government’s main whistleblower office is investigating allegations from a U.S Energy Department worker of possible wrongdoing in U.S.-supported Ukrainian energy business. Who benefited in the United States and Ukraine from this alleged activity? Did Burisma gain any benefits from the conduct described by the whistleblower? OSC has concluded there is a “substantial likelihood of wrongdoing” involved in these activities.
  6. All FBI, CIA, Treasury Department and State Department documents concerning possible wrongdoing at Burisma Holdings. What did the U.S. know about allegations of corruption at the Ukrainian gas company and the efforts by the Ukrainian prosecutors to investigate? Did U.S., Latvian, Cypriot or European financial authorities flag any suspicious transactions involving Burisma or Americans during the time that Hunter Biden served on its board? Were any U.S. agencies monitoring, assisting or blocking the various investigations? When Ukraine reopened the Burisma investigations in March 2019, what did U.S. officials do?
  7. All documents from 2015-16 concerning the decision by the State Department’s foreign aid funding arm, USAID, to pursue a joint project with Burisma Holdings. State official George Kent has testified he stopped this joint project because of concerns about Burisma’s corruption reputation. Did Hunter Biden or his American business partner Devon Archer have anything to do with seeking the project? What caused its abrupt end? What issues did Kent identify as concerns and who did he alert in the White House, State or other agencies?
  8. All cables, memos and documents showing State Department’s dealings with Burisma Holding representatives in 2015 and 2016. We now know that Ukrainian authorities escalated their investigation of Burisma Holdings in February 2016 by raiding the home of the company’s owner, Mykola Zlochevsky. Soon after, Burisma’s American representatives were pressing the State Department to help end the corruption allegations against the gas firm, specifically invoking Hunter Biden’s name. What did State officials do after being pressured by Burisma? Did the U.S. embassy in Kiev assist Burisma’s efforts to settle the corruption case against it? Who else in the U.S. government was being kept apprised?
  9. All contacts that the Energy Department, Justice Department or State Department had with Vice President Joe Biden’s office concerning Burisma Holdings, Hunter Biden or business associate Devon Archer. We now know that multiple State Department officials believed Hunter Biden’s association with Burisma created the appearance of a conflict of interest for the vice president, and at least one official tried to contact Joe Biden’s office to raise those concerns. What, if anything, did these Cabinet agencies tell Joe Biden’s office about the appearance concerns or the state of the various Ukrainian investigations into Burisma?
  10. All memos, emails and other documents concerning a possible U.S. embassy’s request in spring 2019 to monitor the social media activities and analytics of certain U.S.  media personalities considered favorable to President Trump. Did any such monitoring occur? Was it requested by the American embassy in Kiev? Who ordered it? Why did it stop? Were any legal concerns raised?
  11. All State, CIA, FBI and DOJ documents concerning efforts by individual Ukrainian government officials to exert influence on the 2016 U.S. election, including an anti-Trump Op-Ed written in August 2016 by Ukraine’s ambassador to Washington or efforts to publicize allegations against Paul Manafort. What did U.S. officials know about these efforts in 2016, and how did they react? What were these federal agencies’ reactions to a Ukrainian court decision in December 2018 suggesting some Ukrainian officials had improperly meddled in the 2016 election?
  12. All State, CIA, FBI and DOJ documents concerning contacts with a Democratic National Committee contractor named Alexandra Chalupa and her dealings with the Ukrainian embassy in Washington or other Ukrainian figures. Did anyone in these U.S. government agencies interview or have contact with Chalupa during the time the Ukraine embassy in Washington says she was seeking dirt in 2016 on Trump and Manafort?

    • “Today the path to total dictatorship in the U.S. can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by Congress, the President, or the people…Outwardly we have a Constitutional government…We have operating within our government and political system a well organized political action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one party state…The important point to remember about this group is not its ideology but its organization…It operates secretly, silently, continuously to transform our Government…This group (the deep state) is answerable neither to the President, the Congress, nor the courts…It is practically irremovable”—Senator William Jenner in a 1954 speech before a House Intelligence Committee

  1. The termites have been at work digging deeper into the underpinnings of our Nations Liberty for so long that the only solutions are disclosure, a near total purge, long term imprisonment or death for “institutional” treason, and a strengthening of the Constitutions control over Bureaucrats. This will take time, which is why the deep State is working so hard to destroy Trump and return the status quo , which has allowed their existence. A Second Term for Trump Sr. and then 8 years of Don Jr. would just about do it.

  2. If there are documents that need to come out and clear POTUS put them out. All this technology paid by tax payers is meant to be used against persons or groups who want to destroy our democracy. Even if it is our own government officials. No one is above the law.

  3. Request them through the “Freedom of Information Act” or is that a thing of the past or used for the Democrats/Libturds when it suites them?

  4. The liberals / democrats know that obama and Biden were doing corrupt illegal things in the Ukraine and probably in russia as well. This impeach m.j ent is to jeep trump from exposing that. Unfortunately for them the senate trial is likely to expose enough of it to cuase an investigation.

  5. The Democrat Party, should be declared a Terrorist Party, denounced by the mere fact of attempted overthrow of the United States of duly elected President Trump. What greater threat is there, when its the Enemy from within our country. Our own Constitution is being threatened by the Leftist Terrorists called Democrats and if allowed they will succeed. All the “Sham” investigations that have taken place are the seeds of overthrow. Will we succumb to another four years of this, when President Trump, is re-elected? The question is, will we put up with another four years of Socialist bedlam, by these terrorists against our Republic.

      • to answer parts of your question, as soon as Trump was elected, the democrats started talking impeachment before he had time to do anything. The Dems have tried to put blame on Trump for many acts that actually were done by Obama. Then to skip ahead a bit, EVERY witness called by the democrats in the circus they called impeachment query had ZERO proof that he did anything illegal. Every bit of their “proof” was opinions, suppositions and hearsay. Even after this was proven beyond a reasonable doubt, liberals continue to push their agenda to get rid of President Trump. The liberal media has printed and posted a vast quantity of lies, distortions and fabrications to slander President trump and the democrats have tried again and again to use those fake news stories as “proof” of Trump’s guilt. I’ll leave off here for now. May you have an interesting life.

      • What YOU need to do is get OFF the FAKE NEWS STATIONS and actually DO SOME READING. And NOT the writings of PROVEN LIARS like Comey or SCHIFF either. REAL FACTS. LOOK at what Trump has ALREADY DONE FOR America!! Trying to BRING IT BACK to a GREAT COUNTRY!! The one Obama almost DESTROYED!!

  6. Sounds like the state department is trying to run the country’s foreign policy the way they think it should be ran. Not the man elected to do so by the people of this nation. Take the top 4-6 levels of these bureaucrats and put them in the unemployed sector. After they’re removed i think that every 4 year after the presidential election that all these bureaucrats from every agency including the alphabet agencies (HAVE) to not maybe should but HAVE to take an oath of allegiance to this country and an oath of allegiance to the president on all lawful orders. And not do things against any administration who ever the president is Democrat, Republican,67YW or Independent.

    • That is a nice thought, but, unfortunately the Left no longer follows the Constitution, and they write their OWN LAWS!! The Problem is, that NO ONE is STOPPING them!!

  7. I don’t see any confusion about it the demoncratic party is not demoncratic ! It’s gone communism , there should be a Republican , demoncrates , independent , and communist party . Socialism is just another word for genocide ! Good luck with that . The party is a bunch of mixed nuts , Islam radicals , Hamas terrorist , morons the whole bunch ! Do nothing , cry baby’s , dishonorable to country , flage , and the American way. What has any demoncrate done for America ? You know what’s right , real Americans stand your ground , protect your religious beliefs , and God will bless you , in Jesus name we pray.
