Source: The Hill

Two political backers of Energy Secretary Rick Perry landed a lucrative oil and gas exploration deal from Ukraine's government shortly after Perry reportedly included one of the two men in a list of suggested potential advisers to Ukraine's new president, according to the Associated Press.

AP reported Monday that Michael Bleyzer was among four names Perry had recommended to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Bleyzer and partner Alex Cranberg later got a contract to drill for oil and gas despite despite offering a bid that was lower than their only other competitor, AP reported citing internal Ukrainian government documents.

The contract was awarded to Bleyzer and Cranberg because they were deemed as having better technical expertise and stronger financial backing, the AP also reported, citing the documents.

5. Life long benefits

When these asses are trounced in elections, then they should get the same treatment as being fired. No benefits, no retirement, no free life time Heath insurance for them and family. Landslide losses should mean fired. And by the way.......zero security for tRump spawn, he will be secured in prison. If we have a hint of democracy left.

for as wobbly as the political dirt part of all this is, nobody seems to be paying much attention to the gas deal.

8. No wonder Perry couldn't resign fast enough

Once all this shit blew up in the White House. I wonder how much Rick got in his payoff for landing his pals this deal?
