Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters
In a letter dated Sept. 27, Senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley, asked Attorney General William Barr to investigate any ties between Ukraine and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. The letter posed the question: “Are you investigating links and coordination between the Ukrainian government and individuals associated with the campaign of Hillary Clinton or the Democratic National Committee? If not, why not?”
The Clinton/Ukraine link is a cultural connection.
More than 20 years ago, Bill Clinton negotiated the Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters with Ukraine. The treaty, approved by the U.S. Senate, obligates Ukraine to provide, upon request by the U.S., assistance “in connection with the investigation, prosecution, and prevention of offenses, and in proceedings related to criminal matters.” Among other things, Ukraine agreed to furnish “documents, records, the taking of testimony or statements of persons” relevant to any U.S. investigation.
The call between President Trump and President Zelensky was a common action under the treaty. That’s the workings of a treaty. The treaty is valueless if it’s mechanisms aren’t implemented.
Any investigation into a Clinton/Ukraine collusion would easily bear fruit. In fact, the investigation would quickly spread throughout the Democratic Party’s political operations in and with Ukraine. The investigation could clearly begin with much of its leadership. Joe Biden—the Democrats leading presidential candidate—openly admitted to a billion-dollar “Quid Pro Quo” loan arrangement he negotiated with Ukraine.
The motive for the Quid Pro Quo?
You don’t have to ask Joe.
You don’t have to ask Ukraine Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin why Joe Biden wanted him fired.
You want the answer?
It’s easy. Just go to Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas firm, and ask Biden’s son, Hunter, how he got and kept his high paying job.
In Ukraine, even the flies are as corrupt as hell.
Suffice to say: A superficial investigation into Biden’s Ukraine arrangement could easily lead deep into the Obama Administration’s mountain of shady dealings across the globe during its 8 year stay at the White House.
DNC Ukrainian Political Operatives
I find it an incredible convenience that Alexandra Chalupa, a Ukrainian-American activist and Democratic consultant for over a decade, would be a Democratic National Committee contractor, working to get Hillary Clinton elected for president in 2016.
I find it doubly convenient that in 2019 Chalupa would be at the center of the Trump impeachment proceedings.
Much like the Biden/Ukrainian shady dealings, an investigation into the DNC’s heavy involvement in Ukraine, and the Clinton Campaign’s excessive dealings with Ukraine during the 2016 presidential election fight, will cough up more dirt than an industrial vacuum cleaner after Super Bowl cleanup.
At last, it was incredibly shocking to hear Nancy Pelosi say she was okay with losing the house by filing impeachment papers. It’s her prerogative if she wants to play a losing hand of cheap cards. What’s wounding and offensive is how our tax money is being spent—better yet, wasted—on that losing hand.
A Friday night card game pot doesn’t quit compare to the overall billions spent at a DC card pit.
As for Ukraine, it remains as corrupt a country as ever.
And which politician, belonging to which party, has more association with corruption than the Clintons?
In their entire political careers, the Clintons have cultivated a swamp of corruption. They have an affinity for corruption.
They practically invented it.
