An article published by Politico in January 2017 is shedding more light on President Trump’s relationship with the leader of Ukraine; claiming the Democrats’ plot to collude with Kiev officials “backfired” during the 2016 race for the White House.
“Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found,” wrote Politico.
“A Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington in an effort to expose ties between Trump, top campaign aide Paul Manafort and Russia, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.,” added the website.
“There’s little evidence of such a top-down effort by Ukraine. Longtime observers suggest that the rampant corruption, factionalism and economic struggles plaguing the country — not to mention its ongoing strife with Russia — would render it unable to pull off an ambitious covert interference campaign in another country’s election. And President Petro Poroshenko’s administration, along with the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, insists that Ukraine stayed neutral in the race,” wrote the author.

BOOKER IMPLODES: Failing Cory Describes Trump Supporters as Most ‘Despicable Actors’ in US History
Failing presidential hopeful Cory Booker slammed President Trump’s “enablers” Wednesday, saying history will judge his supporter as the most “despicable actors” in the history of the United States.
“Those people who are enabling him, who witness the kind of things he does on a regular basis… Those people that are enabling him, there’s a cold, frigid place under the historical eye. They will go down in history as despicable actors who have enabled a president who’s doing some of the worst things in that office in the history of our country,” said Booker.
“The truth about Donald Trump will come out… I have a very low regard for people who know he’s doing wrong but defend him and empower him to remain in that office,” he added.

The White House released the official transcript Wednesday morning of a private phone conversation between President Trump and the leader of Ukraine; ending days of speculation as Democrats continue their renewed push for impeachment.
The call took place July 25, 2019 between 9:03am and 9:33am from the President’s residence .
“There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great,” Trump said in the phone call. “Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it…It sounds horrible to me.”
“That refers to Joe Biden, while vice president, urging Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, while Shokin was investigating the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings — where Hunter Biden was on the board. Biden has maintained that corruption concerns prompted his intervention,” reports Fox News.
“I will have Mr. Giuliani give you call and I’m also going to have Attorney General Barr call and we will get to the bottom if it. I’m sure you will figure it out,” the President concluded.
