Manafort, the Kingmaker, Brokered a Deal With the EU

One fact that gets lost in the U.S. domestic politics of impeachment is just how large Americans loomed in Ukraine.

During the Maidan revolution of 2014. Paul Manafort, President Trump’s convicted campaign manager, wasn’t just a political consultant. he was a geopolitical kingmaker with a soft touch. He brought together the pro-Russian government and the leadership of the European Union to make a deal that left one opposition oligarch sitting in her jail cell.

Manafort organised the lobbying campaign on the orders of Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, who was ousted by mass demonstrations in Kyiv when he eventually failed to sign the deal. The information backs up allegations made by US special consul Robert Mueller that, as part of the campaign to do an Association Agreement deal, Manafort retained EU “super VIPs” to lobby for Yanukovych. The flight records also reveal Manafort remained a player in Ukraine after the Maidan revolution until as late as 2015.

  1. This is speculation on my part based on the apparent strangeness of Manafort’s activities.

    One specifically is his numerous trips to Ukraine in 2015.

    In spite of all the machinations by DOJ, FBI, CIA and Manfort’s registration as a foreign agent Manfort’s efforts working on the behalf of Ukraine seem very odd.

    We have heard very little publicly of his rationale for his pursuits.

    He goes with the Pro – Russian Ukraine factions and lobbies the EU for an Association Agreement. Do we believe for on minute Putin wants Ukraine to join NATO?

    One thing that continues to bother me about Manafort is his name appearing in John Kerry’s 1988 report on drug running and organized crime.

    What the Kerry report seems to reveal is that Manafort was playing a fixer for either CIA or DEA in the Bahamas which exposes the fact that he was connected to one or both at the time. We also know that Manafort was Ron Reagan’s campaign coordinator southern between 1978 and 1980, he then advised the H W G Bush campaign was employed by the Bush White House I mean the guy has been in the middle of everything. Ray McGovern post today at CN saying CIA seems to be three decades behing times it right.
