Despite Warnings Media Steps on a Rake With “Whistleblower” Story – Ukraine Government Initiated Contact – Giuliani Engagement Was Requested by State Dept. Officials…

Well, well, well… the media cannot say President Trump didn’t try to warn them about throwing fake-news rakes in front of their narrative parade – then wondering why they keep getting black-eyes.   Here we go, the details begin to surface.

With more reporting by John Solomon, cited and attributed to on-the-record officials in the State Department and Ukraine, a much more clear picture emerges. In reality, and unfortunately as expected, the fulsome picture is 180° divergent from the media narrative.

The government of Ukraine under both Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, and now President Volodymyr Zelensky, had been trying to deliver information about Obama officials and Democrat party officials (DNC on behalf of Hillary Clinton) requesting the government of Ukraine to interfere in the 2016 election.

Both Poroshenko and Zelensky administrations had tried, unsuccessfully, to get information to current U.S. officials. U.S. State Department officials in Ukraine were refusing to give visa’s to Ukrainian emissaries because they did not want the damaging information sent to the President Trump administration.

Failing to get help from the U.S. State Department, the Ukranians tried a workaround, and hired a respected U.S. lawyer to hand deliver the documentary evidence directly to the U.S. Department of Justice. The contracted American lawyer hand-delivered the information to the U.S. Department of Justice in New York.

However, after delivering the information and not hearing back from the U.S. government, the Ukrainian government, now led by President Zelensky, interpreted the silence as the Trump administration and U.S. government (writ large) being upset about the Ukraine involvement overall. Out of concern for a serious diplomatic breakdown, the Zelensky administration made a personal request to the U.S. State Department for assistance.

The U.S. State Department then reached out to Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani; and asked him if he would meet with Zelensky’s top lawyer, Andrei Yermak.

Rudy Giuliani agreed to act as a diplomatic intermediary and met with Yermak in Spain. After the meeting, Mr. Giuliani then contacted the State Department Officials in charge of Ukraine and Europe and debriefed them on the totality of the subject matter as relayed by Andrei Yermak.

All of this activity preceded the phone call between U.S. President Donald Trump and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

President Trump and President Zelensky discussed the issues, and this phone call is the one now referenced by the concerned “whistleblower”. The “whistleblower” obviously had no knowledge of the background and why the subject matter discussed in the phone call was framed as it was.

Apparently in the phone call, President Zelensky was explaining what action the Ukranian government had already taken to try and get the information about corrupt U.S. officials, including former VP Joe Biden, to the U.S. government.

It was from this clarification of information that President Trump is reported to have told Zelensky it was OK to proceed with any internal investigation of corruption in Ukraine that might also encompass former U.S. officials.  Yes, that would include Joe Biden.

From this context we can see how the “whistle-blower”, knowing only half of the information – might incorrectly perceive the conversation. Additionally, there’s a possibility the “whistle-blower” may be ideologically aligned with the same government entities that were trying to block the Ukrainian government from delivering the information in the first place.

Beyond the media, pundits and democrat politicians making fools of themselves, four very significant questions/issues become obvious:

  • (#1) who in the U.S. State Department Ukraine embassy was blocking the visas of Ukrainian officials, and why?
  • (#2) Who was the official at the New York office of the DOJ who took custody of the records hand-delivered by the American lawyer working on behalf of Ukraine?…. and
  • (#3) why were those records never turned over to Main Justice?…. Or
  • (#4) if they were turned over to Main Justice, why didn’t they inform the Trump administration they had received them?

At the end of this fake news narrative parade, these will be the questions that remain.

[Interview Transcript]

Q Mr. President, do you want to address this whistleblower story, sir?

Q Will you be asking — will you be asking —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Wait a moment, please.

Q Do you want to address this whistleblower story?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: What story?

Q The whistleblower, whether it was (inaudible)?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: It’s a ridiculous story. It’s a partisan whistleblower. Shouldn’t even have information. I’ve had conversations with many leaders. They’re always appropriate. I think Scott can tell you that. Always appropriate. At the highest level, always appropriate. And anything I do, I fight for this country. I fight so strongly for this country. It’s just another political hack job.

Q Mr. President, on that point, did you discuss Joe Biden, his son, or his family with the leader of Ukraine?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: It doesn’t matter what I discuss. But I will say this: Somebody ought to look into Joe Biden’s statement, because it was disgraceful, where he talked about billions of dollars that he’s not giving to a certain country unless a certain prosecutor is taken off the case.

So, somebody ought to look into that. And you wouldn’t, because he’s a Democrat. And the Fake News doesn’t look into things like that. It’s a disgrace.

But I had a great conversation with numerous people. I don’t even know exactly who you’re talking about, but I had a great conversation with numerous people — numerous leaders. And I always look for the conversation that’s going to help the United States the most. That’s very important.

Q Mr. President, do you know the identity of the whistleblower? Do you know the identity of the whistleblower?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I don’t know the identity of the whistleblower. I just hear it’s a partisan person, meaning it comes out from another party. But I don’t have any idea. But I can say it was a totally appropriate conversation. It was actually a beautiful conversation.

And this is no different than — you know, the press has had a very bad week with Justice Kavanaugh and all of those ridiculous charges and all of the mistakes made at the New York Times and other places. You’ve had a very bad week. And this will be better than all of them. This is another one. So keep — so keep — so keep playing it up, because you’re going to look really bad when it falls. You know, I guess I’m about — I guess I’m about 22 and 0, and I’ll keep it that way.

Q Did you mention Joe Biden during the conversation though, Mr. President?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I don’t want to talk about any conversation, other than to say — other than to say: great conversation, totally appropriate conversation, couldn’t have been better. And keep asking questions and build it up as big as possible so you can have a bigger downfall.

Q Mr. President, on the whistleblower, have you read the complaint? Have you read the complaint of the —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: No, I haven’t. It’s — it’s —

Q Who in your White House has?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I just tell you, it is — everybody has read it and they laugh at it. And it’s another —

Q But you haven’t read it?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: It’s another media disaster. The media has lost so much credibility in this country. Our media has become the laughingstock of the world.

When you look at what they did to Justice Kavanaugh and so many other things last week, I think this is one of the worst weeks in the history of the fake news media. You have been wrong on so many things and this one will be — I wouldn’t say it will top the list, because I think you can’t do worse than some of the stories you missed over the last week or two, but the media of our country is laughed at all over the world now. You’re a joke.

Okay, what else?

Q Mr. President, (inaudible) clarify: When you talk about the conversation that you —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Which conservation?

Q Well, we’re trying to figure out what conversation you’re —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, figure it out. You’re supposed to be the media. Figure it out.

Q July 25th? Was it July 25th?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: It was — which conversation?

Q Was it July 25th, with the President of Ukraine?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I really don’t know. I don’t know.

Q Should Congress see the complaint and the transcript of your call to clear any confusion?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: There is nothing. It’s nothing.

Q Should Congress see it?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: There’s nothing.

      “Nice analysis, CT”

      And Sundance had this story up Friday night (just after midnight giving it a Sep 21 dateline, but barely – I know I read it before bedtime) …

      … and none of the Sunday talk shows would even touch the topic

      So now I notice Sundance has bumped the story back to the top of the main home page here on Sunday night

      …. likely for renewed visibility, I’d speculate

      “Hey guys! Over here!”

      I reckon we’ll hear it on Tucker or Hannity Monday, after the rest of their fellow Fox-droid colleagues avoided it like the plague on Sunday

        Something interesting this afternoon.. Rudy Giuliani had an odd interview with John Roberts on Fox News around 3:30 PM this afternoon.

        It was epic. Somehow, either John Roberts allowed Rudy to tell the entire story of Biden…or Rudy took John Roberts hostage.

        Rudy told the entire criminal story of Biden. Roberts kept saying he had to go, but Rudy kept the story going.

        Maybe Roberts was playing along with Rudy?

        Would not put it past either of them.

          “Its just common sense. Firstly, I suggest you read, or reread Sundances excellent article he ‘reprinted’ recently, detailing the whole Benghazi affair, where he explains the G of 8 involvement, and how they couldn’t REALLY investigate it, or hold Obama or,Hillary accountable, because they were COMPLICIT.

          THEN,,review the,Lois Lerner affair. The Tea party were no threat to Obama.If you think in “D vs. R” terms, the Tea party primarying top Republicans in Congress would be a GIFT to Dems, Obama,should have ordered the tax exemptions EXPIDITED, not delayed.

          WHO benefitted from Lerners work? Top Republicans in Congress.
          And of coarse, Gowdy the cleaner did a sham investigation, and no one got punished.
          Back in the old “boil the frog” pre-Trump days, the con worked.
          The Republicans were the party of stupid, that kept getting ‘bested’ by those wily Dems.

          But, in the Era of Trump, the Republicon face of the Uniparty has been forced tovexpose themselves.
          Keeping Senate in Session, so PDJT can’t make recess appointments.
          Does anyone REALLY think DJT, VSG and billionaire businessman, can’t do a better job of vetting subordinates than what we have seen so far?

          McConnell tells him who can ‘get confirmed’ by the Senate.
          Which means who McConnell and Shumer decide he can have.
          Ryans otherwise inexplicable behavior, his treatment of Nunes, his lack of support, ethics investigation, etc.

          All the usual characters seeing the same, word for word chorus of ” Mueller is an honorable man”,…
          Knowing what we know now, LOOK who the Republican party ran, against a one term Senator who hadn’t distinguished himself, and with a very murky pedigree: McStain, and,Romney Ryan.
          “Once?,…Happenstance.
          Twice?,….Coincidence
          Third time? ,..ENEMY ACTION!

          And at this point, we are WAY past 3!
          Do you REALLY think the,Senate Intelligence committee, and gang of 8 didn’t KNOW about that MOU, which enabled contractors to politicise and weoponise the NSA database?
          What, cause it was such a MINOR deal?
          Oh, and remember how we all marveled that so many Tea Party candidates, went all swampy once they were elected?
          How so many court cases go against us?
          Its just common sense. So many things over last 10-20 years, that,caused us to say
          “WTF?”, make sense now.
          The Bushes doing the ‘brother from another mother’ with the CLINTONS??? I mean, really?
          The CLINTONS!!!! Come ON, man. You need RESEARCH, really?
          AGAIN, I suggest reading Sundances excellent recap of Benghazi. Then, read it again, but put in Lerner/Irs scandal, Fast/Furious, etc. Fits like a GLOVE, and if the,glove fits, you MUST convict!
          “Totally scandal free administration”, Obama says.
          Well, HOW do you DO that? Obviously, they corrupted the DOJ/ FBI, but that,wouldn’t be enough. They HAD to compromise/corrupt the RepubliCONS in CONgress, as well. Otherwise the,R’s could make problems for them.
          Hence, AWAN operation.
          This isn’t a ‘conspiracy theory’, its RIGHT THERE for all to see.

    Whatever the information is, we have it now.
    This might explain Senator Nunes’ demeanor this morning on the Bartiromo show – posted earlier today on CTH. A few commented on how serious he appeared to be, and the lack of his usual
    more easy going, demeanor. If the information Zelensky references is what it appears to be, its enormous. Coming almost out of nowhere.

    Now that they know the Zelensky documents are in proper DOJ/WH hands, the Obama/Clinton conspirators are really going to have some bad days. Vodka and Xanax are a bad combination and will not make the problem go away.

    The Biden family is so inept that they have revealed the foreign aid scam.

    Foreign aid gets sent, sometimes with ‘strings’ attached (like firing a corruption prosecutor). A certain percentage gets paid to US party family members (Hunter Biden energy contract), etc. Some will make it back to the political party through these family member donations and some from multinational donations/lobbying. We see the same scam going with the NGOs and the US border.

    There is no stopping this because all the entities with authority to do something are benefiting. This is a feature not a bug.

    Could the Trump team have … nah. Couldn’t be. Did they set up … nah. That’s too much. Could this have been…..

    Well, maybe a small team, brainstorming. After all, the Obama crew, or at least Brennan, thought up Crossfire Hurricane and the Russian collusion narrative, the insurance policy. And the Trump team is smarter than they are. Could they have set up a known Clinton/Obama partisan, a potential “whistle-blower, and then just sat back and waited? Waited that person to leak it to the press, knowing the moron press could never resist a “finally got him” story? Please don’t throw me in the Ukraine briar patch. Hah! And so it was the anti-Trump press that just outed Biden and his son. Is Rudy laughing up his sleeve tonight?

    Next up: NBC/CNN/MSNBC: “We found it! Obama’s Kenya birth certificate that Trump stole and has been illegally hiding! Uh… wait a minute”?

    This “whistleblower” issue is rooted in something different from E. Jean Carroll or Stormy Daniels. It is appropriate that Lindsey Graham should be out speaking today.

    This piece is a quick read but too long to post here. It basically calls out No-Name, Lindsey, and elements in the Obama administration for their continued efforts to cause more military conflict between Ukraine and Russia and sell more weapons. The article, published the first week of 2017 and during the transition contained this:

    “Legislation just signed by outgoing President Barack Obama is the latest, and possibly most damaging bit of “revenge” Obama casts at Putin and anti-hegemony advocates before leaving. S.2943 – the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 sponsored by McCain, contains words and constraints that in essence prohibit Donald Trump from allying with Russia against ISIL or any foe, until the former Ukraine falls into the NATO sphere.”

    Ominously, Kurt Volker, the Executive Director of the McCain Institute for International Leadership is parked in Kiev as US Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations. Rex Tillerson installed him in July 2017.

    Last year, Ukraine proposed a $2B+ arms deal (under their former president).

    Finally, from the Carter Page FISA warrant application (page 21).

    “TOP SECRET//NOFORN | a July 2016 article in an identified news organization reported that Candidate #l’s campaign worked behind the scenes to make sure Political Party #l’s platform would not call for giving weapons to Ukraine to fight Russian and rebel forces, contradicting the view of almost all Political Party #l’s foreign policy leaders in Washington. The article stated that Candidate #l’s campaign sought “to make sure that [Political Party #1] would not pledge to give Ukraine the weapons it has been asking for from the United States.” Further, an August 2016 article published by an identified news organization characterized Candidate #1 as sounding like a supporter of Ukraine’s territorial integrity in September [2015], adopted a “milder” tone regarding Russia’s annexation of Crimea. The August 2016 article further reported that Candidate #1 said Candidate #1 might recognize Crimea as Russian territory and lift punitive U.S. sanctions against Russia. The article opined that while the reason for Candidate #l’s shift was not clear, Candidate #l’s more conciliatory words, which contradict Political Party #l’s official platform, follow Candidate #l’s recent association with several people sympathetic to Russian influence in Ukraine, including foreign policy advisor Carter Page”

    Interesting that this part made it into the FISA warrant application and that it was not redacted before release. Must be important to someone.

    So is the priority Ukranian sovereignty or is it weapon sales or is it the continuation of NATO?
