Ken Cuccinelli Tried to Deny Trump the Presidential Nomination. He’s Been Rewarded With a Job at DHS.

The avowed #NeverTrump figurehead is inexplicably being hired to advise Trump on immigration policy.

A #NeverTrump icon – who hated then-candidate Donald J. Trump so much that he attempted to deny him Virginia’s pledged delegates at the 2016 Republican National Convention – has now been tapped for a job within the Trump administration.

“President Trump has tapped former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli for a post as an immigration adviser at the Department of Homeland Security, the White House confirmed Tuesday,” according to The Washington Times. 

Cuccinelli is best known for his temper tantrum on the floor of the RNC in Cleveland in 2016. At the time, Big League Politics editor-in-chief Patrick Howley reported for Breitbart:

Cuccinelli…spoke at the convention’s Rules Committee hearing late last week in favor of a “conscience” voting provision that would have un-bound Trump’s pledged delegates on the first ballot. Cuccinelli was also involved in pushing Monday to stop the Rules Committee’s package from being adopted on the convention floor.

In what became a viral video, Cuccinelli can be seen slamming his credentials on the ground in protest, desperately trying to be recognized by the chair.

Apparently, disgracing himself and the Republican party in front of the entire country was not enough to dissuade Trump from handing him a role in the administration. There was a great deal of speculation that Trump would create an “immigration czar” position, though its scope was never specifically defined. According to multiple reports, Cuccinelli’s role will not be that of “immigration czar.” The scope of his new job is still undefined.

Cuccinelli’s name was floated alongside Kris Kobach, a known border hawk and former Kansas Secretary of State, who many in the Trump base believed was the right man for the job.

LEAKED AUDIO: Joe Biden Laughs with Former Ukrainian President about Sabotaging Trump’s Campaign in 2016

Biden’s Ukrainian crony was sabotaging Trump.

Published

A shocking new audio release from 2016 of then-Vice President Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko shows the two men laughing at the sabotage of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, which at the time was fledgling.

Poroshenko and Biden talked on Aug. 19, 2016 about the release of the infamous ‘black ledger’ allegedly showing how former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort received illicit payments from former Ukrainian President Yanykovych. They cackled about how the entire document release was orchestrated.

“And other thing, it’s just a joke. We release the important documents from the former Regions Party,” Poroshenko said to Biden.

“And as far as I understand, one of the key adviser of Mr. Trump, so-called Paul Manafort, is resigned today,” Poroshenko added, laughing about the supposed misfortune of the Trump campaign.

“Yes. Yeah. I think he’s going back to Russia. I don’t know,” replied Biden.

“And I think that this was a bad idea to take the Yanukovych adviser to the Trump team,” Poroshenko said to Biden after laughing.

“Yes, I think so, too. But there are a lot of bad decisions he’s making,” Biden responded.

The leaked audio of the exchange between Biden and Poroshenko can be heard here:

Big League Politics reported last year on the dubious nature of the black ledger and how the Obama administration pushed dubious information to frame Manafort and hurt Trump:

Investigative journalist John Solomon issued an op/ed in The Hill explaining the details of Obama’s sordid dealings regarding Paul Manafort’s infamous black ledger in an attempt to frame Trump and punish his Russian enemies.

“Manafort’s case is one of the cases that hurts me a lot,” corruption prosecutor Nazar Kholodnytskyy said in a statement to The Hill.

He continued: “When we discovered first in May 2016, this black ledger list, I ordered the detectives… to give nothing to the mass media in considering this case. Instead, they had broken my order and published themselves… one or two pages of the black ledger.”

The detectives would not give Kholodnytskyy an explanation as to why they released this sensitive information, but he immediately suspected outside interference.

“For me, it was the first… call that something was going wrong and there was some external influence in this case… and [there was] some other interest in this case not only in the interest in the investigation and a fair trial,” Kholodnytskyy said.

The investigation was jeopardized because the Obama regime wanted to build the case against Trump associates ahead of time so they could bamboozle the public with a phony Russian investigation as a backup plan if Trump were somehow to win the Presidency.

Trump would go onto defeat Crooked Hillary, and then Obama’s minions in the deep state and fake news would go on to push a hoax that would tear the United States apart.

Former political officer at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, Andrii Telizhenko, is one of the key whistle-blowers exposing the Obama regime’s foreign meddling efforts in the Ukraine. He exposed a meeting that occurred with Obama officials and Ukrainian officials in Jan. 2016 in Washington D.C. to make sure the nations’ “anti-corruption efforts [were] united.”

Kostiantyn Kulyk, who works as deputy head of the Ukraine prosecutor general’s international affairs office, mentioned that Ukrainian officials offered intelligence at the meeting showing the criminality of many corrupt Western officials, including the now-indicted former Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig. The Obama regime did not want to hear it.

“They just discussed Manafort. This was all and only what they wanted. Nobody else,” Kulyk said.

The FBI had previously investigated Manafort’s Ukrainian dealings in 2014, ultimately deciding not to charge the man of any crime. However, that changed when making a scapegoat of Manafort became advantageous to the Obama administration less than two years later.

“Somebody kept this black ledger secret for two years and then showed it to the public and the U.S. media. It was extremely suspicious,” Kholodnytskyy said.

Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) released the sensitive documents on Manafort on May 29, 2016, just ten days after he was announced as Trump’s campaign chairman. A Ukrainian court has declared this illicit collusion to be illegal election interference.

Biden’s shady dealings with Ukraine may ultimately prevent him from winning the presidency if the American public becomes sufficiently aware of his extreme corruption.
