BREAKING: Mueller Investigating Trump Over $150K Donation From Ukrainian Billionaire Who Gave Clintons $13 Million

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating a $150,000 donation to President Donald Trump’s charity in 2015 from a Ukrainian businessman who has given tens of millions of dollars to Bill and Hillary Clinton, according to a new report.

The donation, from Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk, came after “then-candidate Donald Trump gave a 20-minute speech at a European conference that promoted closer ties between Ukraine and the West,” Business Insider reported.

The speech was set up in August 2015 when Doug Schoen, a political consultant for Pinchuk, contacted Trump directly and asked if he would give a speech. Trump reportedly accepted but did not bring up the subject of being paid to make the appearance.

The report states that Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, is alleged to “have called Schoen the next day to ask for a $150,000 fee from Pinchuk in exchange for the talk.”

The New York Times reported in 2016 that Pinchuk “has directed between $10 million and $25 million to the [Clinton] foundation,” and that he also “lent his private plane to the Clintons and traveled to Los Angeles in 2011 to attend Mr. Clinton’s star-studded 65th birthday celebration.”

The Times report also notes that Schoen, who was a former political consultant for Bill Clinton, arranged approximately a dozen meetings with Hillary Clinton’s State Department on behalf of or with Pinchuk between September 2011 and November 2012 to discuss political problems in Ukraine.

A January 2017 report from Politico alleged that Ukrainian government officials worked to boost Hillary Clinton and hurt then-candidate Donald Trump by “helping to force Manafort’s resignation and advancing the narrative that Trump’s campaign was deeply connected to Ukraine’s foe to the east, Russia.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last July demanding answers from the Department of Justice on the alleged collusion between the Democratic National Committee, the Clinton campaign, and the Ukrainian government.

Another report from January 2017, from the Observer, noted that Pinchuk funded “the Washington-based think tank Atlantic Council, which is an openly anti-Russian organization partly.”

Serving on the Atlantic Council is senior fellow Dmitri Alperovitch, who is the co-founder and CTO of Crowdstrike. Crowdstrike is the firm that the DNC hired to investigate the alleged hacks into their servers.

The Observer added, “The DNC denied multiple requests from the FBI to access their servers, effectively forcing the FBI to rely on CrowdStrike’s assessment of the hacks.”

    So it’s OK for the Hildebeast to collect tens of millions from the same guy who paid $150,000 for Trump’s speech, so that’s a sin by Trump? Oh, please! Didn’t slick Willy collect $500,000 from the Russians for a “speech” while the Hildebeast was Secretary of State? My, my, my! The double standard is working overtime, methinks.

      Yes Louise, you are correct. Bill Clinton as paid US$ 500,000 by Rosatom, and the Clinton Foundation was also paid US$ 1,835,00 by Rosatom, a week before Hillary Clinton signed the Uranium One deal which gave the Russians 20% of the USA’s uranium – in perpetuity. It appears as through these amounts were down payments because, Rosatom has paid the CF US$ 140 million from 2013 to 2016 wrote Brietbart.

        So darned funny and hypocritical that democrats have rights no one else gets to have. They never mention the Uranium deal, but persecuted the people like the Bundy’s for sticking up for a few American ranchers left near the BLM uranium deposits.

      It’s also ok for a porn star to blackmail Trump for a one night stand, but not ok for his friend to pay her off. It is also ok for said porn star to try to increase the blackmail when she figures the one night stand should be worth more after Trump is elected. Dems are ok with blackmail, rape by presidents, criminal illegals, voter fraud, gun confiscation, and all sorts of unconstitutional acts by Democrats.

    Really? Trump had no knowledge for what the lawyer did. But the Clintons take millions from George Soros who wants to cause the collapse of America. The evidence is overwhelming and they are still not in prison for outright treason! Give me a break!

    Would there be a problem if 1,000,000 + knitters with long needles went searching for mueller? I bet that we could knock some doors off the hinges. We want to make him a body sweater made out of coarse uncomfortable rough rope. Real snug custom fit. Head to toe
    body suit. There are a couple of others that should start running. Are other Christians having anger issues with our dept of un-justice. If my President is unfairly prosecuted, would be best if the deep state left the U.S.A. A lot of us are live with disabilities. We don’t care. Tired of this b.s.

    Scary what is now going on and our own FBI and some in there who tried to control events for their choice Hillary. Now this whole attack on Trumps Attorney. He could have called Trump for the money out of his own bank account not anything from the campaign was needed or whatever this attorney did to get this money? Now this per a Russian when Hillary and her husband did business with the Russians and Bill got $500,000 for a speech really? We are tired of it all and when a country like Syria is suffering and we all sit here something is terribly wrong.

    The left is grasping at straws which shows how desperate they are. In the end, this will be a GOOD THING because it is opening so many people’s eyes to the evil and double standards. If they can raid our PRESIDENT’S attorney’s office, then they can do anything they want to any of us. We’re FED UP! God, please shine Your LIGHT OF TRUTH on our nation!
