US Embassy pressed Ukraine to drop probe of George Soros group during 2016 election
Lutsenko told me he was stunned when the ambassador “gave me a list of people whom we should not prosecute.” The list included a founder of the AntAC group and two members of Parliament who vocally supported the group’s anti-corruption reform agenda, according to a source directly familiar with the meeting.

It turns out the group that Ukrainian law enforcement was probing was co-funded by the Obama administration and liberal mega-donor George Soros. And it was collaborating with the FBI agents investigating then-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s business activities with pro-Russian figures in Ukraine.

The implied message to Ukraine’s prosecutors was clear: Don’t target AntAC in the middle of an America presidential election in which Soros was backing Hillary Clinton to succeed another Soros favorite, Barack Obama, Ukrainian officials said.

“We ran right into a buzzsaw and we got bloodied,” a senior Ukrainian official told me.

Sounds like election interference. Add Obama and Soros to the list of corrupt actors manipulating Ukraine.

Actually your linked source sounds like the OPINION of its author who is an OPINION WRITER for the Hill.

Not to leave out that the OP's linked OPINION piece is three years old and on an even that took place six years ago.

LoL

Must be a really slow news day on the Right!

The facts aren't his opinion. His thoughts about the facts are opinion, and he's pretty spot on.

What facts?

There was no Election Interference in what took place.

His OPINION that there was is just that, his OPINION.

Why? I had no idea that mentioning Soros would trigger you to transform out of your genie bottle.
Assumes facts not in evidence - but just as it is with your fevered FLASHBACK, your vivid imagination doesn't go overlooked.

As for George Soros, anybody who doesn't know who he is, where he comes from, or what he's done can just look it up.


I've never met him, and I've never met you, but my guess is that you aren't fit to carry his jockstrap. But I'll maintain an open mind.
What does your Wikipedia page say about you?

I'm disappointed that you're not willing to share all the glorious accomplishments your Wikipedia page says about you.

Too shy, I guess.
