Opinion – 10/5/19 – If you’re wondering why the Democrat spin engineers, and Rep. Adam Schiff are apoplectic over Rudy Giuliani’s Ukraine investigation, it’s not because they’re concerned about protecting a corrupt ex-vice president and fading presidential candidate.
Evidence is beginning to point to Ukraine as Democrats’ corruption central for money and election interference.
(Fox News) House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who has played a leading role in investigating the Trump-Ukraine scandal, is facing questions about his own connection to a Soviet-born businessman who has raised money for his campaign and whose company has received lucrative defense contracts from Ukraine’s government.
That man is Igor Pasternak, the founder and CEO of Worldwide Aeros Corp., which makes blimps for military and commercial customers. His business has also been involved in weapons manufacturing, working with the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense to produce a modified version of the M4 and M16 rifles, according to reports.
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.”
Laura Ingraham: “Why isn’t anyone asking more questions about Schiff’s place at the center of the left’s new Ukraine hysteria?
While Ingraham correctly pointed out that there’s nothing illegal about Pasternak doing fundraisers for Schiff, and factoring in Schiff’s apparent change of heart once he received the money, this has all the appearance of another pay to play scheme involving the corrupt Ukrainian government and members of the Democratic Party.
Rudy Giuliani Drops Ukrainian Collusion Bomb on Democrats!

Giuliani: “Ukrainian collusion, which was large, significant and proven. With Hillary Clinton. With the Democratic National Committee. With Chalupa. With the ambassador. With an FBI agent who has now been hired by George Soros who has been funding a lot of this.
“The new prosecutor dropped the case not just on Biden’s kid and the crooked company he worked for Burisma… He also dropped the case on George Soros’ company … where there’s documentary evidence that they were producing false information about Trump, about Biden, Fusion GPS was there…
“… Nellie Ohr says that there was a lot of contact between Democrats and Ukraine…”
As President I have an obligation to end CORRUPTION, even if that means requesting the help of a foreign country or countries. It is done all the time. This has NOTHING to do with politics or a political campaign against the Bidens. This does have to do with their corruption!

We are unsure of the true nature of this situation, that being said, you have to admit, it does not look great for Mr. Schiff. However, he, just like every American, is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
