Top Ukrainian Prosecutor Opens Probe Into Possible Pro-Clinton Bias In Government
Ukraine’s top prosecutor is opening an investigation into what role his country may have played in trying to sway the 2016 U.S. election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The mission of this investigation is to uncover exactly why the “black ledger” files were leaked to the media in the U.S.
The move lead to the firing of Paul Manafort from the Trump campaign, because it showed him being paid under the table by Ukraine. This fueled accusations of collusion with Russia.
The prosecutor said he was forced to act after hearing a tape recording of Ukrainian officials claiming they released the information to help Clinton’s campaign.
“This member of Parliament had even alleged that on tape were several men, one of which had a voice similar to the voice of Minister Sytnyk, discuss the matter,” stated Yurii Lutsenko, Ukraine prosecutor general.

The prosecutor will also look into how much contact members of the Obama administration had with Ukrainian officials at the embassy in Kiev.
In a ruling last December, a Ukrainian court claimed the decision to publish the ledger amounted to interference in the United State’s election.
