Obama Used Deep State Actors Like Suspected Whistleblower Eric Ciaramella As Early As January 2016 To Pressure Ukraine To Provide Dirt On Trump Campaign

(Gateway Pundit) – Records show Obama and his Deep State actors in the White House pressured the Ukraine to provide dirt on candidate Trump and his team in early 2016.

Highly respected investigative reporter John Solomon called the 11 AM January 19, 2016 meeting in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building “one of the earliest documented efforts to build the now-debunked Trump-Russia collusion narrative and one of the first to involve the Obama administration’s intervention.”

Suspected Schiff whistleblower Eric Ciaramella chaired that meeting, which was also attended by his frequent collaborator Liz Zentos.

The meeting was ostensibly arranged by the Obama administration for anti-corruption training and coordination, but it didn’t take long for the Ukrainian participants, during the meetings and afterward, “to realize the Americans’ objectives included two politically hot investigations: one that touched Vice President Joe Biden’s family and one that involved a lobbying firm linked closely to then-candidate Trump.”

The Obama Department of Justice officials were interested in reopening a closed 2014 FBI investigation that “focused heavily on GOP lobbyist Paul Manafort, whose firm long had been tied to Trump through his partner and Trump pal, Roger Stone.”

Nazar Kholodnytskyy, then Ukraine’s chief anti-corruption prosecutor and a meeting attendee, said he saw evidence in Ukraine of political meddling in the U.S. election, when the “black ledger,” key evidence against Manafort, who had joined Trump’s campaign on March 29, 2016 and then was promoted to campaign chairman on May 19, 2016, was suddenly released to the media in May 2016.

According to Andriy Telizhenko, then a political officer at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington DC and a meeting attendee, U.S. officials told the Ukrainians they would prefer that Kiev drop the Burisma probe and allow the FBI to take it over (it is believed that the FBI attended the January 19, 2016 meeting). Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company, was under investigation in Ukraine for improper foreign transfers of money. At the time, Burisma allegedly was paying then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter as both a board member and a consultant.

All of the above suggests that the Obama Administration used U.S. government personnel in an attempt to enlist a foreign nation to provide negative information about political opponents and to quash investigation of political allies.

And when the Ukrainians did not agree, it appears that the U.S. government pressured the Ukrainian government to replace obstinate Ukrainian officials with more compliant ones.

The Ukrainians did not agree, but then Joe Biden pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to fire Ukraine’s chief prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, in March 2016, as Solomon previously reported.

While visiting Kiev in December 2015, Joe Biden threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that, if he did not fire Shokin, the US would hold back its $1 billion in loan guarantees.

Another meeting attendee, David G. Sakvarelidze, then Deputy General Prosecutor of Ukraine, was also fired in March 2016.

It was recently reported that People’s Deputy of Ukraine, Andrii Derkach, the initiator of a criminal case on interference in the US elections, has disclosed documents from which it follows that First Deputy Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) Gizo Uglava has been providing information to the US Embassy in Kyiv for several years, that negatively affected the course of events in Ukraine and the US.

The recipient for at least some of that “negative” information was Anna Yemelyanova (also spelled Iemelianova or Yemelianova), Legal Special at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, an attendee at Eric Ciaramella’s January 19, 2016 meeting.

The Obama Administration deeply damaged the United States. It’s clear that the 44th president and his administration never ever bought into the American dream. For them, America was for the taking.



  1. You know the federal government has grown too large when you see the name of an attorney’s office: “attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice, Criminal Division in the Office of Overseas Prosecutorial Development, Assistance and Training”. There’s the first job that should be eliminated if we are to begin to bring the national budget under control.

    Obviously, while many of us were focused on getting Ted Cruz nominated, the Democrats could see the Trump Train coming right at them and began to pull out all the stops as early as January 2016. I think they knew that no matter who they nominated in 2016, Trump was going to whip their behind. Hillary was never going to win. The Dems have the same view looking down the tracks at 2020. Why are some Republicans so slow to see that? We need to be behind our president 100%.

  2. the average American citizen is more worried about baseball/football/reality show dreck than their own country. wolf’s in DC know how to shear the sheep and take them to the cleaners. it will take 5 million armed citizens to march on DC and take care of business……we all that will never happen. us dollar reserve currency printing machine scam, 23 trillion in debt with no end in sight…..may be the trigger that brings it all down like a house of cards. not a day to soon. sometimes things must get worse to get better.

  3. Not one of these Democratic criminals will be prosecuted, if the spineless gutless Republicans in the senate was going to do anything they would already have begun investigations. It will be somebody that’s at the bottom of this scam that’s takes the fall for all the Dems wrong doings.

  4. That’s why the antiTrump gangs wanted to lock up “Trump American Faith Call” spiritual leader Paul Manafort in their misinterpretation of Laws and exaggerating aggressive liberals’ hatred or negligence on the discipline of professional literacy and on positivity of civilizations radiance. Such conditional delusion of making fake to facts through the measurement of fallacious collective voices is harming America’s Constitutional Democracy practice. In our Cybercapitalism era, The President of the United State ought to be trained from American Educational System since their young age in the cultural of American Christianity’s Hope, Love and Faith. Obama is a “President of Change” who torn down the value of American Christianity and made our kids to feel shame to be faithful in our school system, Obama endorsed enormous international Human Rights .ORG to support “violence to fight for freedom and right” but he and his gangs can not help Ms. Sophie-Kuanghua Sie to be prospected by the well written Human Rights Articles, Patient Rights, Constitutional Laws, Codes and rules. And the corrupt culture of his insider representation residue made Ms. Sie was wrongfully incarcerated into their fully controlled or influenced Jail and TPH 2 years and two months with false crimes-false insanity-Fake IST that were fabricated or misrepresented by their belligerently appointed Experts who can not even speak and write English in understandable way to average American trained civilians! Shouldn’t we hold Obama and his gangs liable for American society’s moral failure, culture bankrupt, and intellectual bankrupt! They persecuted ProTrump grassroots and threatened Experts and professionals who wanted to tell the truth and let the truth be told of in the deep State. All The victims of antiTrump gangs’ bias ought to file a class law suite against Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Schiff and their gangs including James Comey, Muller, deep State Prosecutors and their insurance carriers for no less than 1 billion, because Ms. Sie’s damages is more than 1 billion!

  5. What is so unbelievable is the amount of people that appear intelligent, and yet join in “group think” or “thinkless groups” which is like worship of a small group to allow them to set the stage for evil for you. The democrat party, headed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi established herself as the leader when she first vetted an unknown person, Barack Hussein Obama, for president of the USA. Nothing was known about him, but the color of his skin, and only else what he allowed to be released about his background. It has never been revealed how he became Barack Hussein Obama even though he was adopted by Lolo Sortoro, in Indonesia (papers known and legal), but from the time he arrived in California as a foreign exchange student he crossed the USA and arrived in Harvard Law School as Barack Hussein Obama.

  6. FRIGHTENING!!!! I’m heartbroken that this is how CORRUPT our government is!! What a tragedy that the OBAMA administration is getting away with ALL of their corruption.

  7. CITIZRNS ARREST – BOUNTY HUNTERS – MERCADO – Article lll sections 1 and 3 of the constitution gives people the right. The founding fathers weren’t stupid.

  8. How many laws does Obama have to break before this disgraceful traitor is arrested? So sick of the corruption of the Democrat party. Media is a joke, not facts from the media Nazis puppets. American people are just lazy and stupid. No free thinkers in the Democrat party.
