By yesterday afternoon, it was becoming clear that the Trump-Ukranian scandal would come back to bite Democrats and their allies in the fake news media, who are hell-bent on taking down President Trump before the 2020 election.
Here’s how the media tried to turn the Biden-Ukranian scandal into a Trump scandal.
From the Last Refuge In March 2016, then Vice-President Joe Biden warned Ukraine that $1 billion in loan guarantees would be withheld by the U.S. unless they replaced Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor general who was investigating Hunter Biden. Ukraine did remove Shokin, and the prosecution was dropped. It looks like a clear case of a quid-pro-quo.
However, as things are starting to shake out, the current obfuscation to protect Joe Biden is President Trump asking Ukraine’s new president Volodymyr Zelensky to take another look at the issues surrounding the former government’s decision to fire the Ukrainian prosecutor. This is presumably the call concerning the whistleblower. To wit, democrats see this as Trump asking Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election.
Washington Post – A whistleblower complaint about President Trump made by an intelligence official centers on Ukraine, according to two people familiar with the matter, which has set off a struggle between Congress and the executive branch.
The complaint involved communications with a foreign leader and a “promise” that Trump made, which was so alarming that a U.S. intelligence official who had worked at the White House went to the inspector general of the intelligence community, two former U.S. officials said.
Two and a half weeks before the complaint was filed, Trump spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a comedian and political newcomer who was elected in a landslide in May.
That call is already under investigation by House Democrats who are examining whether Trump and his attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani sought to manipulate the Ukrainian government into helping Trump’s reelection campaign. Lawmakers have demanded a full transcript and a list of participants on the call. (read more)
Three Democrat-controlled house committees – Foreign Affairs, Intelligence and Government Reform – have announced that they will investigate whether a host of ethical and legal rules have been violated.
Rosie memos, a popular conservative account on Twitter tweeted about the Democrat lawmakers, Representatives Adam Schiff, Eliot Engel and Elijah Cummings (who President Trump recently humiliated when he exposed how the long-term lawmaker has done nothing to address the serious sanitation issues in his “rat and rodent infested” district) who’ve opened THREE investigations into President Trump and his legal counsel Rudy Giuliani for “conspiring” with Ukrain for “favorable election results.”
Rosie memos added a screenshot of a fundraiser that was held for Rep. Adam Schiff at the home of billionaire Ukranian arms dealer, and globalist, Igor Pasternak.
Yesterday, during his meeting with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in the Oval Office, President Trump warned the media that they were embarrassing themselves with the Ukrainian whistleblower story.
Trump also warned radical Democrats and their allies in the fake news media, specifically calling out “Little Adam Schiff,” for batting “Zero for 21” against him. Trump referred to the so-called “whistleblower statement” as “highly partisan” in his tweet.
Trump added: Strange that with so many other people hearing or knowing of the perfectly fine and respectful conversation, that they would not have also come forward. Do you know the reason why they did not? Because there was nothing said wrong, it was pitch perfect!

On Thursday night, CNN host Chris Cuomo and Rudy Giuliani had a heated exchange over the whistleblower allegation.
Giuliani: "You're a sellout."

Yesterday, John Soloman of The Hill, revealed how the media is attempting to mislead the American people, yet again, when it comes to Rudy Giuliani and President Trump’s discussions with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The coverage suggests Giuliani reached out to new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s team this summer solely because he wanted to get dirt on possible Trump 2020 challenger Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings in that country.
Politics or law could have been part of Giuliani’s motive, and neither would be illegal.
But there is a missing part of the story that the American public needs in order to assess what really happened: Giuliani’s contact with Zelensky adviser and attorney Andrei Yermak this summer was encouraged and facilitated by the U.S. State Department.
Giuliani didn’t initiate it. A senior U.S. diplomat contacted him in July and asked for permission to connect Yermak with him.
Then, Giuliani met in early August with Yermak on neutral ground — in Spain — before reporting back to State everything that occurred at the meeting.
That debriefing occurred Aug. 11 by phone with two senior U.S. diplomats, one with responsibility for Ukraine and the other with responsibility for the European Union, according to electronic communications records I reviewed and interviews I conducted.
When asked on Friday, Giuliani confirmed to me that the State Department asked him to take the Yermak meeting and that he did, in fact, apprise U.S. officials every step of the way.
“I didn’t even know who he [Yermak] really was, but they vouched for him. They actually urged me to talk to him because they said he seemed like an honest broker,” Giuliani told me. “I reported back to them [the two State officials] what my conversations with Yermak were about. All of this was done at the request of the State Department.”
So, rather than just a political opposition research operation, Giuliani’s contacts were part of a diplomatic effort by the State Department to grow trust with the new Ukrainian president, Zelensky, a former television comic making his first foray into politics and diplomacy.
Why would Ukraine want to talk to Giuliani, and why would the State Department be involved in facilitating it?
According to interviews with more than a dozen Ukrainian and U.S. officials, Ukraine’s government under recently departed President Petro Poroshenko and, now, Zelensky has been trying since summer 2018 to hand over evidence about the conduct of Americans they believe might be involved in violations of U.S. law during the Obama years.
The Ukrainians say their efforts to get their allegations to U.S. authorities were thwarted first by the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, which failed to issue timely visas allowing them to visit America.
Then the Ukrainians hired a former U.S. attorney — not Giuliani — to hand-deliver the evidence of wrongdoing to the U.S. attorney’s office in New York, but the federal prosecutors never responded.
The U.S. attorney, a respected American, confirmed the Ukrainians’ story to me. The allegations that Ukrainian officials wanted to pass on involved both efforts by the Democratic National Committee to pressure Ukraine to meddle in the 2016 U.S. election as well as Joe Biden’s son’s effort to make money in Ukraine while the former vice president managed U.S.-Ukraine relations, the retired U.S. attorney told me.
Eventually, Giuliani in November 2018 got wind of the Ukrainian allegations and started to investigate.
As President Trump’s highest-profile defense attorney, the former New York City mayor, often known simply as Rudy, believed the Ukrainian’s evidence could assist in his defense against the Russia collusion investigation and former special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report.
So Giuliani began to check things out in late 2018 and early 2019, but he never set foot in Ukraine. And when Ukrainian officials leaked word that he was considering visiting Ukraine to meet with senior officials to discuss the allegations — and it got politicized in America — Giuliani abruptly called off his trip. He stopped talking to the Ukrainian officials.
Does anyone else find Soloman’s explanation of what really happened to be extremely disturbing? How much longer before the media and the Democrat Party have entirely lost any credibility with Americans over their insatiable desire to destroy a sitting President of the United States?
Last night, Fox News’ Sean Hannity slammed the “media mob” last night during his Hannity Show, telling his audience that the unhinged leftist media has “opened the door for a national discussion” on former Vice President Joe Biden‘s alleged pressuring of Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor while he was leading a corruption investigation into a natural gas company that had ties to his son Hunter.
“Multiple reports now suggest that the so-called whistleblowers claim it surrounds the country of Ukraine,” the Fox News host said on “Hannity.” “Now they’re doing us a favor because they’re now opening up a lot of questions we wanted to a cover for a long time.
“I didn’t see anyone in the mob interested in that story, but I do think the media mob, you have opened the door now for a national discussion about, well, what did Biden and his son do — and when did they do it?” Hannity said. “And what kind of interference was Ukraine involved in as relates to our 2016 election? Now we’ll hopefully get to the truth.”
“The boomerang comes right back on Biden, his family, and the Democrats.”
Watch, as The Hill’s John Soloman explains in detail about what really happened with Rudy Giuliani and the Ukraine government:
Today, after suffering a brutal blow to their credibility for a horrible, misleading smear campaign aimed at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the discredited New York Times committed a random act of journalism, when they reported about the actual scandal Americans need to know about, the Joe and Hunter Biden scandal:

Will the anti-Trump fake stream media ever recover from their embarrassing unfounded allegations against Trump and his administration? Will the Democrats ever win another election without committing voter fraud?
