In a bit of news that has become inconvenient for the pro-impeachment narrative, It was reported in 2017 that Ukrainian officials worked against President Donald Trump on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the Democrats in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election.
Politico issued the report that the fake news now hopes that the people do not remember:
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.
The Ukrainian efforts had an impact in the race, helping to force Manafort’s resignation and advancing the narrative that Trump’s campaign was deeply connected to Ukraine’s foe to the east, Russia…
While it’s not uncommon for outside operatives to serve as intermediaries between governments and reporters, one of the more damaging Russia-related stories for the Trump campaign — and certainly for Manafort — can be traced more directly to the Ukrainian government.
Documents released by an independent Ukrainian government agency — and publicized by a parliamentarian — appeared to show $12.7 million in cash payments that were earmarked for Manafort by the Russia-aligned party of the deposed former president, Yanukovych.
The New York Times, in the August story revealing the ledgers’ existence, reported that the payments earmarked for Manafort were “a focus” of an investigation by Ukrainian anti-corruption officials, while CNN reported days later that the FBI was pursuing an overlapping inquiry…
And, almost immediately after Trump’s stunning victory over Clinton, questions began mounting about the investigations into the ledgers — and the ledgers themselves.
An official with the anti-corruption bureau told a Ukrainian newspaper, “Mr. Manafort does not have a role in this case.”
Ukrainian member of parliament Serhiy Leshchenko has sought to recast his investigation after the election.
And, while the anti-corruption bureau told Politico late last month that a “general investigation [is] still ongoing” of the ledger, it said Manafort is not a target of the investigation. “As he is not the Ukrainian citizen, [the anti-corruption bureau] by the law couldn’t investigate him personally,” the bureau said in a statement.
President Trump and his supporters are now reminding the public about Ukraine’s involvement with the Democrats and their work to undermine Trump heading into the 2016 presidential election.
“Once you understand that Ukrainian officials were cooperating directly with President Trump’s political opponents to undermine his candidacy, it’s easy to understand why the president would want to learn the full truth about these operations and why he would be skeptical of Ukraine,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) stated during the impeachment hearing o Wednesday.
The fake news now claims that Republicans are talking about baseless conspiracy theories for bringing up this Politico report from 2017. Bureaucrats engaging in the impeachment fervor are peddling that falsehood as well.
“Some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did,” said Fiona Hill, who once worked on Trump’s National Security Council staff. “This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services.”
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who works as Director for European Affairs for the United States National Security Council, told Congress that the notion of Russian interference is “a Russian narrative that President [Vladimir] Putin has promoted.”
Putin has commented on the matter and has said he hopes that the hoopla dies down because the circus is negatively impacting U.S.-Russia relations:
Here's how Putin feels about the impeachment hearings: "Thank God nobody is accusing us any more of interfering in the U.S. elections."

Regardless of Putin’s opinion, the news is clear that the Ukrainian interference did in fact take place. By denying their own reports, the mainstream media looks more phony and desperate than ever before.
White House Press Secretary: It Was Fine for Biden Family to Ignore COVID Edicts Because They Were ‘Celebrating’
The rules only apply to the peasants.
White House Press Secretary Jennifer Psaki responded to concerns from reporters about President-imposed Joe Biden ignoring his own COVID-19 lockdown orders on inauguration day by claiming it was fine because he was “celebrating.”
Psaki is essentially making the argument that elected officials do not have to abide by their own edicts and that those orders are for the little people whom they lord over.
“Why weren’t President Biden and all members of the Biden family masked at all times on federal lands last night if he signed an executive order that mandates masks on federal lands at all times?” the reporter asked.
“He was celebrating, uh, an evening, uh uh uh, a historic day in our country, and certainly he signed the mask mandate because it’s a way to send a message to the American public,” Psaki said, stammering through her response.
This is far from the first time that Democrat politicians have violated their own orders with regards to COVID-19 in blatant fashion, as Big League Politics has reported:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is blaming a salon, alleging an elaborate conspiracy against her, after she was caught breaking COVID-19 quarantine rules to get a haircut.
“I take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood salon,” Pelosi said to reporters on Wednesday. “It turns out it was a setup.”
Pelosi was apparently clueless about the COVID-19 restrictions in her home state of California and went solely on the word of the salon, if her dubious story can be believed at all.
“I take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times,” Pelosi said.
“I trusted that – as it turns out it was a setup,” she added. “So I take responsibility for falling for a setup and that’s all I’m going to say on that.”
Now, she wants the salon to issue an apology to her for supposedly engaging in this elaborate conspiracy to make her look foolish and hypocritical.
“I think this salon owes me an apology for setting up,” she said.
Erica Kious, the California salon owner being criticized by Pelosi, is not likely to apologize. She appeared on Fox News to talk about Pelosi’s extreme contempt for the little people and her obvious belief that she is above the rules that others in non-privileged positions have to abide by.
“It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no-one else can go in, and I can’t work,” she said.
In-door salon activity is still banned in the city of San Francisco, although outdoor haircuts are now permitted.
Democrats are no longer operating under the pretense that they are stewards of the people. They are planning to coronate a globalist technocracy with mush-brained Biden as the hapless figurehead.
