The narrative that President Trump is willing to collude with foreign powers in order to win elections is one that the left has refused to give up. With the Russian collusion story proven baseless, House Democrats are now pushing for impeachment over entirely unproven allegations that Trump colluded with Ukraine to gather opposition research on Joe Biden.
According to one Ukranian prosecutor, though, it isn’t Trump who colluded with Ukraine, but rather the Democratic party – and he’s said to have the evidence to prove these claims.
The only problem is that this prosecutor is now being denied entry into the United States by the Obama-appointed US ambassador to Ukraine.
Kostiantyn Kulyk, deputy head of the Prosecutor General’s International Legal Cooperation Department and one of Ukraine’s top law enforcement officials told The Hill’s John Solomon, “We were supposed to share this information during a working trip to the United States. However, the [U.S.] ambassador blocked us from obtaining a visa. She didn’t explicitly deny our visa, but also didn’t give it to us.”
The story that Kulyk claims he has evidence to support is a significant one. According to Kulyk, a certain company with strong ties to the Democratic party was involved in a money-laundering operation that saw large amounts of cash move from the United States to Ukraine. Kulyk says that these payments were authorized “for lobbying efforts directed at the U.S. government.”
In addition to this, Kulyk also claims to have evidence that Obama administration officials pressured the Ukranian National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) during the 2016 election to hide payments that were made to an unnamed Democrat.
“In the course of this investigation, we found that there was a situation during which influence was exerted on the NABU, so that the name of [the American] would not be mentioned,” Kulyk said.
Finally, Kulyk claims to have sworn statements from two Ukranian officials saying that their agency was responsible for leaking an alleged ledger that showed payments being made to Paul Manafort – who was Trump’s campaign manager at the time.
According to their statements, this ledger was leaked in a direct effort to sabotage Trump’s campaign and was also carried out with direct guidance from DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa.
The list of damning evidence against the Democratic party that Kulyk claims to possess goes on and on, including evidence that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was paid millions of dollars in unexplainable money transfers as well as evidence that Joe Biden used his influence as vice president to force the termination of the Ukranian prosecutor who was set to investigate the issue.
The irony that House Democrats are moving forward with impeachment proceedings over a single phone call that Trump had with Ukraine’s president when there seems to be so much evidence that it is the DNC who are actually guilty of colluding with Ukraine is overwhelming.
Yet so long as the US ambassador to Ukraine – the Obama-appointed Marie Louise Yovanovitch – continues to deny Kulyk’s visa, the DOJ will have no opportunity to see the evidence that Kulyk claims to have.
Nevertheless, by pursuing impeachment over Trump’s conversation with the president of Ukraine, House Democrats have opened up Pandora’s box when it comes to Ukrainian collusion. If they continue down this path, there is no stone that won’t be uncovered, and Kulyk will almost certainly get the opportunity to present the evidence of Democratic collusion that he claims to have.
For now, though, it’s important to take Kulyk’s testimony with a grain of salt in order to avoid making the same mistake as the Democratic Party by rushing into unproven allegations of collusion. With that said, however, Kulyk’s testimony is already much stronger evidence of collusion than anything House Democrats have put forward so far as their reasons for moving ahead with impeachment proceedings.
As is so often the case, it now seems that the Democratic party is guilty of the exact crime they are trying to accuse President Trump of committing.
If even half of what Kulyk has alleged turns out to be true and verifiable, the Democratic Party’s attempts to impeach Trump on charges of colluding with Ukraine will backfire in the most dramatic way possible.
