Watchdog Calls on Johnson to Disclose Contacts with Sanctioned Russian Agent
SEP 10, 2020

Derkach said in interviews they provided information to Johnson’s committee – but Johnson denies it. “According to in-depth reports Telizhenko, along with two Russian-linked operatives, Oleksandr Onyshchenko and Andrii Derkach — have been working as ‘collaborators’ in conjunction with Rudy Giuliani. Collectively, they comprise, “Team Giuliani,” Onyshchenko said in an interview. Onyshchenko and Derkach each said in interviews that they provided information to Sen. Johnson’s committee, but Johnson denies it. But this specific denial is something of a ruse.” [Just Security, 8/11/20]

JOHNSON HAS REPORTEDLY USED INFORMATION PROVIDED TO HIS COMMITTEE BY DERKACH IN HIS INVESTIGATION INTO THE BIDENS

Daily Beast: Derkach has “been supplying documents to Republicans on Capitol Hill, where Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is conducting an election-eve investigation into the Bidens.” “That’s the conclusion of the U.S. Treasury Department, which sanctioned on Thursday one of Rudy Giuliani’s Ukrainian allies for interference in the upcoming U.S. elections. Andriy Derkach worked closely with Giuliani—and with the Trump-friendly cable network, OANN—to push accusations of political misconduct against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Derkach, a member of Kyiv’s parliament and son of a former KGB officer, has also been supplying documents to Republicans on Capitol Hill, where Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is conducting an election-eve investigation into the Bidens.” [Daily Beast, 9/10/20]
