“As … Trump began his meteoric rise … the Obama White House summoned Ukrainian authorities to Washington …. Ukrainian participants said it didn’t take long … to realize the Americans’ objectives included two politically hot investigations: one that touched … Biden’s family and one that involved a lobbying firm linked closely to then-candidate Trump. … [O]ne of the earliest documented efforts to build the now-debunked Trump-Russia collusion narrative … one of the first to involve the Obama administration’s intervention. File Photo of Donald Trump Waving Before Large Crowd with Trump Signs, adapted from image at whitehouse.gov … * * * Politico reported that the Ukraine Embassy in Washington assisted Clinton’s campaign through a DNC contractor. The Ukraine Embassy acknowledges it got requests for assistance from the DNC staffer to find dirt on Manafort but denies it provided any improper assistance.
