Schiff's Own Ties to Ukraine Raise Questions

Dana Mathewson

In a recent post, Tim said something to the effect that it might be easier investigating Democrats whose family members didn't have ties to Ukrainian businessmen. It certainly seems as if it is getting harder to find them -- as well as Democrat politicians themselves. At least, it's getting easier to see why Democrats in Congress are so fearful of any investigation into their own possible involvement into that part of the world.

This piece of news is almost a week old but apparently Fox News' Laura Ingraham is about the only reporter who has made any noise about it, at least on the idiot box

Rep. Adam Schiff is one of Donald Trump's fiercest, most relentless critics. He still insists there was collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign and is a primary mover behind the current efforts to impeach the president.

But Schiff has his own connections to Ukraine that may raise troubling questions about a conflict of interest.

Schiff's ties to a wealthy Russian-American businessman doing business in Ukraine have recently come to light. Igor Pasternak is CEO of Worldwide Aeros Corp., a company that makes blimps for the military and commercial sectors. The company also makes a modified version of the M4 and M16 rifles that are manufactured in Ukraine. His connection to Pasternak, who is doing business with the Ukrainian government, could be construed as being a conflict of interest in his committee's investigation..

Fox News:

In 2013, Pasternak hosted a fundraiser in Washington for Schiff, who later came to embrace a strong stance in support of the United States sending military aid to Ukraine during its conflict with Russia.

"Before this time, Schiff rarely, if ever, mentioned Ukraine,” Fox News’ Laura Ingraham said on her show Thursday night, after detailing Schiff’s connection to Pasternak."But after the fundraiser, he used multiple television appearances to basically demand that we send money and arms to them.”

Schiff's abrupt shift on supplying arms to the nation where his benefactor owns a large company might raise a few eyebrows. Pasternak's efforts to win military contracts from the Ukrainian government makes one wonder what else Schiff might have done to help his supporter.

[...]

Inevitably, people are going to start pointing to a double standard:

She also claimed Democrats were concerned about the optics of a double standard when Schiff became one of the standard-bearers for impeachment.

"The liberals weren’t all that wild about the idea of this Schiff character pushing the Trump narrative, because they thought, he’s kind of a pro-military expenditure, ra-ra, get more money over to these other governments. They weren’t thrilled about that," Ingraham said.

Trump is already on this angle, but it remains to be seen whether Democrats can keep ignoring it after Republicans begin asking whether Schiff should recuse himself from the investigations.

Yes indeed. Sauce for the goose, etc. Please go here https://pjmedia.com/trending/schiffs-own-ties-to-ukraine-raise-questions/ to read the rest.

2 Well, well, well!  Seems the Dems have all been fornicating with Ukraine. This thing is starting to really stink. I wonder how much the mainstream media is going to report?  (You may stop laughing.)

3 Oh, I'm sure they'll get around to it any day now, Tim. Right after they report truthfully about how Hillary actually lost the 2016 election and how Trump is really a legitimate President.
