Some VERY interesting dots are being connected between Ukraine, Biden, and the origins of this entire Impeachment strategy. It involves a story that got suddenly spiked by the NYTimes.
It’s enough to make one wonder whether this was an orchestrated attempt to destroy the presidency from the outset.
It involves some of the very people that Trump mentioned in that now-famous phone call with President Zelensky. Specifically, Burisma.
It’s exactly the sort of thing that makes Trump’s inquiry into Burisma a legitimate question of law enforcement, and not merely ‘for political gain’ as his critics so cynically charge.
Laura Ingram broke open the story on her show. What did she tell us?
“The chain centers on a request from New York Times reporter Ken Vogel,” Ingraham began. “[In] May of 2019, Vogel sends an email to State Department official Kate Schilling about a story he was working on regarding an Obama-era meeting with Ukrainian prosecutors. In his request, Vogel mentions a name who some have reported is the whistleblower.
The name most people would assume that references has been widely reported as Eric Ciaramella.
“The chain centers on a request from New York Times reporter Ken Vogel,” Ingraham began. “[In] May of 2019, Vogel sends an email to State Department official Kate Schilling about a story he was working on regarding an Obama-era meeting with Ukrainian prosecutors. In his request, Vogel mentions a name who some have reported is the whistleblower. We have not yet confirmed this name, so we are blacking it out for here.”
Ingraham read the email from Vogel, which stated:
We are going to report that State Department official Elizabeth Zentos attended a meeting on the White House on January 19th, 2016, with Ukrainian prosecutors and embassy officials. The subjects discussed included efforts within the United States government to support prosecutions in the Ukraine and United Kingdom of Burisma holdings and concerns that Hunter Biden’s position with the company could complicate such efforts.
“On May 1st, State Department official Kate Schilling forwarded Vogel’s email to her colleagues Elizabeth Zentos and George Kent Remember him? He was one of the House Democrats all-star impeachment witnesses,” Ingraham said. “According to Schilling’s email, Kent has previously been a source for Vogel — I wonder how many times. Follow up emails reveal the conversation ending on May 3rd when the State Department eventually declined to comment.”
Ingrahm’s team confirmed through White House visitor logs that, on January 19th, 2016, the man in question did check a number of Ukranian officials into the White house.
But that story died even before it saw the light of day.
Who is hiding what … and why?
Ingraham then noted the importance of the timeline of events with respect to The New York Times’ looking into the meeting in May 2019.
“The timing of their request and the subsequent squashing of the story are very interesting. Biden announced his candidacy on April 25th, 2019,” Ingraham said. “The exchanges we laid out here occur the following week. Now we have some questions. Number one, why wasn’t the whistleblower concerned about Joe Biden overseeing Ukraine policy while his son was cashing in? Was it only troubling that Trump himself tried to get this thing investigated? Number two, why didn’t this story ever run? Did Biden’s team manage to put it down, fearing blowback from his son Hunter’s dirty dealings?”
What ELSE has the Obama White House been up to?
