Ukraine ‘Anti-Corruption’ Director Bragged About Helping Hillary Clinton In 2016: Leaked Audio

After a multi-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election that resulted in sanctions and a handful of indictments, the fact that Ukraine meddled in the same election been largely ignored.

Veteran Democratic operative Alexandra Chalupa worked directly with the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States, and investigative reporter Michael Isikoff to target Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, according to a Politico report.

They were coordinating an investigation with the Hillary team on Paul Manafort with Alexandra Chalupa,” said Andrii Telizhenko, who worked in the embassy at the time, adding “the embassy worked very closely with” Chalupa.

“If we can get enough information on Paul [Manafort] or Trump’s involvement with Russia, she can get a hearing in Congress by September,” Telizhenko recalls Chalupa saying.

In a leaked email obtained by The Blaze, Chalupa tells the DNC’s Louise Miranda:

Hey, a lot coming down the pipe. I spoke to a delegation of 68 investigative journalists from Ukraine last night at the Library of Congress, the Open World Society forum. They put me on the program to speak specifically about Paul Manafort. I invited Michael Isikoff, who I’ve been working with for the past few weeks, and connected him to the Ukrainians. More offline tomorrow, since there was a big Trump component you and Lauren need to be aware of that will hit in the next few weeks. Something I’m working on that you should be aware of. -Alexandra Chalupa to Louise Miranda

Thanks to Chalupa’s outreach on behalf of Clinton and the DNC, Artem Sytnyk, Ukraine’s Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU – which Joe Biden helped form) and lawmaker Serhiy Leshchenko released a “black ledger” containing off-book payments to Manafort. In December of 2018, a Ukrainian court ruled that Sytnyk and Leshchenko “acted illegally” by releasing Manafort’s name, according to the Kiev post (Keep reading for an interesting Biden connection).

As an interesting side-note, Sytnyk leaked Manafort’s name to journalist Nataliya Sedletska of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty – which is funded by the US State Department.

In short, a DNC operative coordinated Ukrainian election meddling in the 2016 US election – and worked with a US journalist to ensure it would inflict maximum damage to the Trump campaign.

While the ruling against Sytnyk and Leshchenko was later overturned on a technicality, The Blaze obtained and translated recording of Sytnyk bragging about helping Clinton in the 2016 US election.

Translation via The Blaze:

Kolya: Did they, those Russians, help Trump? Your people?

Sytnyk: I think they did. Yeah. I helped him, too. Not him, but Hillary. I helped her.

Kolya: Yeah. Right. Then her position tottered, right?

Sytnyk: Well, this is how they write about it, right.

Ivan: Hillary’s humanitarian aid … [indiscernible.]

Kolya: Well, I’m about … the commentaries. At the time, we were not [indiscernible.]

Sytnyk: Trump … his purely inner problem … issue … they dominate over the external matters. While Hillary, she is — how shall I put it? She belongs to the cohort of politicians who comprise the hegemony in the US. Both in the US and the entire world, right? For us, it’s … sort of … better. For Americans … what Trump is doing is better for them.

Kolya: Well, we have lots of those American experts here now … [indiscernible.]

Sytnyk: Well, there, you see why Hillary lost the elections? I was in charge of the investigation of their “black accounting” records. We made the Manafort’s data available to general public.

Biden and Ukraine:

On another very interesting note, the Epoch Times‘s Jeff Carlson documented former Vice President Joe Biden’s connections to Ukraine in an April article that has become immensely relevant in recent weeks.

Select excerpts via the Epoch Times:

As Ukraine underwent dramatic changes in 2014, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden played a critical role in the Obama administration’s involvement in the revolution that ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

Following the revolution, Biden would use his influence to help force the creation of the troubled National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU). Notably, during the 2016 election campaign, information leaked from NABU about Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort that helped to create the false narrative that Trump colluded with Russia to win the election.

In April (of 2014), Biden would get personally involved, as would his son, Hunter. On April 18, 2014, Hunter Biden was appointed to the board of directors for Burisma–one of the largest natural gas companies in Ukraine.

Four days later, on April 22, 2014, Vice President Biden traveled to Ukraine, offering his political support and $50 million in aid for Yatsenyuk’s shaky new government. Poroshenko, a billionaire politician, was elected as president of Ukraine on May 25, 2014.

Biden became close to both men and helped Ukraine obtain a four-year, $17.5 billion IMF package in March 2015.

In October 2016, Foreign Policy wrote a lengthy article, “What Will Ukraine Do Without Uncle Joe,” which described Biden’s role in the removal of Ukraine’s general prosecutor, Victor Shokin. Shokin, the choice of Poroshenko, was portrayed as fumbling a major corruption case and “hindering an investigation into two high-ranking state prosecutors arrested on corruption charges.”

      1. Randall, seriously bro? Not only are you inviting deadly force against elected officials — a really big crime – such talk attacks “spyies” to this page. I for one want to be able to express myself freely without be worried Big Brother is looking over my shoulder.

  1. I knew it! Lets get more proof and send her back to her fave in arkansas! She can still make moonshine the crooked bitch!

  2. The impeachment inquiry will be a good thing for Trump then you will expose the truth about the corruption and intimidation of the previous administration and the Democratic Party will become the main focus on their role in influence padding and their pay to play or suffer the consequences.

  3. I hear a constant drone of truthful allegations against these low life criminals and yet not one has been charged or indicted! I wonder why that is? It couldn’t possibly be because the whole damn bunch are nothing but criminals could it! Give it a rest folks, the Clintons, Brennon, Clapper no of them are going to prison or even jail! So you all might just as well get over it and move on! The truth is you live under the rule of an OLIGARCHY and have been for some time now! I know, people like to claim we live in a Constitutional Republic, but it just ain’t so! Good God people we don’t even live the a democracy! If you haven’t figured that out yet you’re in for one hell of rude awakening! It doesn’t really take a lot to figure out the truth! Just look at what Trump has to put up with on a daily bases! He proves almost everyday that the OLIGARCHY is alive and well and in control! I’d yell for people to wake up but it’s way to late for that now! Enjoy your OLIGARCHY folks, I’m sure your children and grandchildren will thank you for the legacy they are being left with! Anyway, sleep well and when you awake to your nightmare….
