WHO IS ALEX VAN DER ZWAAN AND WHY DOES HE MATTER?

Unrolled thread from @_VachelLindsay_

Viktor Pinchuk wants Ukraine to capitulate to Russia – Oligarch Viktor Pinchuk presented Ukrainians with a New Years gift by revealing his inner thoughts about the Donbas and Crimea, Russia, EU and NATO. Pinchuk clearly sees himself as an intermediary, l… http://euromaidanpress.com/2017/01/04/victor-pinchuk-wants-ukraine-to-capitulate-to-russia-crimea-donbas/

1. Mueller indicts lawyer Alex van der Zwaan. MSM scream: the evil Drumpf is about to fall!

They’re embarrassingly WRONG, of course. And they are MISLEADING you, by not mentioning OTHER names (bombshells incoming). Let me explain.

2. The indictment is linked to Manafort & Gates illegal lobbying for the pro-Putin Ukrainian strongman Viktor Yanukovych between 2007-2013.

Van der Zwaan, who looks like Clark Kent, has lied to the FBI about his contact with Gates & another person (anon).

3. Some background: Skadden Arps, a global law firm, was hired in 2012 by the Ukraine Ministry of Justice to prepare a report on the trial of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, a political rival to Viktor Yanukovych.

4. Viktor Yanukovych was elected as President of Ukraine on 7 February 2010. While he portrayed himself as a centrist, in reality he was a Kremlin-backed stooge. Tymoshenko was anti-Putin, so the inevitable occurred and she was arrested after Yanukovych’s election.

5. On 11 October 2011, she was convicted of embezzlement and abuse of power, and sentenced to seven years in prison and ordered to pay the state $188 million.

This caused outrage and condemnation across the world.

6. The Yanukovych government then hired Skadden (the law firm) to write a report on the prosecution of Tymoshenko, assessing whether or not her imprisonment adhered to international legal standards.

7. Surprise, surprise: the Skadden report found that Yanukovych-era legal officials did not deprive Tymoshenko of her right to due process during the trial. In effect, the report was funded by the pro-Russian Ukrainian President to legitimize her prosecution.

8. IMPORTANT (bombshells incoming!) : Alex van der Zwaan was involved in producing the report, BUT he was not the person engaged by the Ukrainian government. That was Greg Craig, a partner of the firm. And Clifford Sloan, another partner.

What are you NOT being told?

10. Even more significantly (IMO), Craig had served as assistant to the President and special counsel in the White House of (drum roll)…

President Bill Clinton.

There’s more:

11. Craig directed the team defending Clinton against impeachment. Working with Clinton’s COS, one John Podesta.

Yes you can get up off the floor. Actually, wait a sec, stay there. The other partner at Skadden responsible for producing the report? Clifford Sloan?

12. Well, how about that?

Clifford Sloan was Associate White House Counsel to President Bill Clinton. At the same time as Greg Craig.

These two guys are CLINTON people.

FROM WAY BACK.

Ain’t it funny what the media won’t tell you? Anyway, let’s move on.

15. July 2, 2010 – Clinton visited Ukraine to meet with Yanukovych & other leaders of the Putin-backed team. Consistent with the re-set but also disappointing for anti-Putin crowd, her tone was surprisingly positive about Yanukovych:

18. Oh – also, in 2008 Pinchuk, who had made a fortune in the pipe-building business, had pledged a five-year, $29-million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative.

19. Many aren’t aware, but Ukrainians (read ‘Pinchuk’) were the single-largest donors to the Clinton Foundation:

21. He was a solid backer of Yanukovych, which continued until the winds started turning against the Kremlin-backed President in 2013:

22. Of course, this involved lobbying Hillary Clinton as SOS, via the Clinton Foundation. Here’s an email from September 2011 revealing Pinchuk’s ties to Yanukovych:
foia.state.gov/searchapp/DOCU…

23. When the winds shifted against Yanukovych, he simply switched sides to protect his business interests. The Clintons did the same thing when needed.

They took money from him the whole time.

24. This included Clinton turning a blind eye while Punchik’s company, Interpipe, screwed US manufacturers of lead piping by pricing them out of the US market. All while under international sanctions, too. More on that here:

25. Did Clinton disclose what was going on with Pinchuk? Hell no. She deliberately LIED about even meeting him.

31. However, don’t forget that Podesta was ALSO extensive connected with Russia/Putin. By 2012, he had already lobbied for Russia, as well as a list of the world’s worst regimes:

32. For the Yanukovych project, Podesta worked the Dem side of the aisle, but was also the go-between with Clinton at State. For example, he didn’t disclose at least 32 meetings, emails and other communications between the Podesta Group & State:

35. There’s another person who I am certain never knew about all this – Donald Trump. I’ve long argued that Manafort’s presence on the Trump campaign was suspicious. The above, plus his association with Podesta, backs me up. More here:

45. And it wasn’t good for the USA.

But it was most certainly good for business.

CLINTON business.

The end.
