President Trump is back on the offensive, this time drawing attention onto Hillary Clinton and the potential collusion between the failed Democratic candidate and Ukraine.
In a tweet on Wednesday evening, President Trump quoted John Solomon saying, “John Solomon: As Russia Collusion fades, Ukrainian plot to help Clinton emerges.”

On Wednesday, John Solomon recently interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko on Hill.TV about a recent investigation that has been launched to look into “alleged attempts by Ukrainians to interfere in the United States’ 2016 presidential election.”
The Hill reported:
Lutsenko will be probing a claim from a member of the Ukrainian parliament that the director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), ArtemSytnyk, attempted to the benefit of the 2016 U.S. presidential election on behalf of Hillary Clinton.
According to the member of parliament of Ukraine, he got the court decision that the NABU official conducted an illegal intrusion into the American election campaign,” Lutsenko told The Hill.
“It means that we think Mr. Sytnyk, the NABU director, officially talked about criminal investigation with Mr. [Paul] Manafort, and at the same time, Mr. Sytnyk stressed that in such a way, he wanted to assist the campaign of Ms. Clinton.”
Ukraine’s state department has even responded by saying they are well aware of the situation and want to address the potential corruption in the government.
“We have consistently said that Ukraine’s long-term success and resilience depends on its commitment to reform, in particular the fight to address corruption,” a spokesperson for the Ukraine state department said.
“To succeed, Ukraine needs committed government officials and strong anti-corruption institutions. The United States is committed to engaging with our partners in Ukraine, including on efforts to roll back the persistent corruption that continues to threaten Ukraine’s national security, prosperity, and democratic development,” they added.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
As noted by The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra, just days before Trump was sworn into office, Politico broke the story on the alleged pro-Clinton Ukrainian plot. “Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office,” Politico reported. “They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.”
Politico also reported that: “Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington in an effort to expose ties between Trump, top campaign aide Paul Manafort and Russia, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.”
Will we get a special council to look into everything Hillary has ever done? Or does the rule of law only apply to President Trump and Republicans?
Time will tell but my guess is NO, Hillary will always get a free pass for any law she breaks.
