Trump Sides With Indicted Oligarch Over His Own Diplomat

Source: The Daily Beast

President Donald Trump boosted a tweet Monday promoting a controversial allegation from an indicted Ukrainian oligarch: that a top U.S. diplomat put fabricated information about the mogul in a diplomatic cable.

That diplomat happens to be one of Democrats’ key impeachment witnesses. And that oligarch happens to have a long-standing beef with Joe Biden.

Scott Adams, a Washington, DC talk radio host, sent out a tweet Monday night about U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor, who delivered some of the impeachment inquiry’s most damaging testimony yet. The tweet alleged that Taylor lied about Ukrainian natural gas baron Dmytro Firtash in a cable to State Department headquarters in 2008. At issue was a conversation Taylor had with Firtash in Kyiv that December. Taylor wrote in a diplomatic cable (later published by Wikileaks) that Firtash told him he had “acknowledged ties to Russian organized crime figure [Semion] Seymon Mogilevich,” one of the most notorious accused mobsters on the planet. According to Taylor, Firtash said “he needed Mogilevich's approval to get into business in the first place,” but had not committed any crimes in the course of his business.

When WikiLeaks published the cable in 2010, Firtash issued a statement on his website disputing its contents. Firtash, the statement claimed,“has never stated, to anyone, at any time, that he needed or received permission from Mr. Mogilevich to establish any of his businesses.”

2. Is there NO END to his blatant pandering ?

His never ending abuse of the American Intelligence community is despicable. These professional men and women have dedicated their entire careers to protecting this nation. In three years, he has tried to do everything he could to destroy it.

If he has such disregard for our experts and institutions, and feels this way, why in the BLUE FUCK did he run for the job ?

These people have defended The Constitution every day. He defends dictators, tyrants and murderers.

This cretin has NOT upheld any part of his oath of office.

4. Rachel made an interesting observation...

I think it was last week, that the oligarchs are who probably bailed out tRump when he was in bankruptcy, and seriously needed cash inflow to stay afloat. Makes sense.
