You’ve probably never heard of Artem Sytnik. Until about five minutes ago, I hadn’t either, but he’s the Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine.
And now, audio has been released where Sytnik discusses helping Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
Let me say that again: the guy in charge of Ukraine’s anti-corruption bureau admitted in a recorded conversation that he tried to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

It sounds like the Ukrainians thought Clinton would be easier to deal with than Trump:
Sytnik: “While Hillary … she is – how shall I put it? She belongs to the cohort of politicians who comprise the hegemony in the US. Both in the US and in the entire world. Right. For us, it is …sort of … better. For the Americans …. what Trump is doing is better for them.”
Sytnik also mentioned his involvement in investigating “black accounting” and the release of data on Paul Manafort that resulted in Manafort’s arrest.
This is big stuff. This certainly looks like a foreign entity conspiring to affect the results of a U.S. election – and not at the behest of Trump. Corrupt foreign officers wanted Hillary Clinton to win the presidency, because they thought having her in office would benefit them. What does that tell you.
Glenn Beck also gave a great breakdown of the ridiculous focus on President Trump when it comes to Ukraine:
.@glennbeck does a spot-on impression of the media covering the Ukraine scandal wearing Trump-goggles.
"Nothing to see here…"

Regardless of whether Trump acted improperly in his interactions with Ukraine, there’s NO question that there are plenty of unclean hands across the aisle. Sure, let’s look into Trump’s actions – but we certainly need to look into Biden’s, Clinton’s, and Obama’s actions, too. That isn’t whataboutism – that’s dealing with corruption and bad acts regardless of political affiliation.
Something tells me the mainstream media won’t give this part of the story the attention it deserves.
