Schiff Staffer Caught Going To Ukraine Paid For By Organization With Ties To Hunter Biden
A staffer who works for Rep. Adam Schiff’s House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence took a trip to Ukraine last month and it was sponsored by the organization called the Atlantic Council.
The Atlantic Council is a think tank funded by and works with Burisma, which is the natural gas company in the middle of the allegations being levied against Hunter Biden.
Staffer Thomas Eager who works for Schiff was one of 19 fellows at the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Congressional Fellowship, which is a bipartisan program that claims it “educates congressional staff on current events in the Eurasia region.”
Eager’s visit was sponsored by the Burisma-funded Atlantic Council which began only 12 days after the “whistleblower” officially filed his complaint on August 12th.
Eager was contacted by Breitbart News but refused to speak with them via telephone or email. In an email sent by Breitbart News, they asked, if the “trip sponsored by the Atlantic Council, personally held any meetings in Ukraine related to the whistleblower complaint filed about two weeks before the visit.’”
A post-travel disclosure form was filed with the House Committee on Ethics verifying the Ukraine trip taken by Eager and Adam Schiff’s signature is on the document.
The form bearing Schiff’s signature (above) describes the visit:
Series of meetings and visits with gov’t officials, party officials, civil society and private sector reps in Ukraine to learn about ongoing political and military issues, including conflict in the East.
The cost for Eager’s trip was around $3817.
What’s even more interesting is that another member of the Atlantic Council David J. Kramer attended who just so happened to be an adviser to the late Senator John McCain, and this is where it gets juicy; Breitbart News reports:
Kramer revealed in testimony that he held a meeting about the anti-Trump dossier with a reporter from BuzzFeed News who he says snapped photos of the controversial document without Kramer’s permission when he left the room to go to the bathroom. That meeting was held at the McCain Institute office in Washington, Kramer stated.
BuzzFeed infamously published the Christopher Steele dossier on January 10, 2017 setting off a firestorm of news media coverage about the document.
The Washington Post reported last February that Kramer received the dossier directly from Fusion GPS after McCain expressed interest in it.
In a deposition taken on Dec. 13, 2017 and posted online earlier this year, Kramer revealed that he met with two Obama administration officials to inquire about whether the anti-Trump dossier was being taken seriously.
In one case, Kramer said that he personally provided a copy of the dossier to Obama National Security Council official Celeste Wallander.
In the deposition, Kramer said that McCain specifically asked him in early December 2016 to meet about the dossier with Wallander and Victoria Nuland, a senior official in John Kerry’s State Department.
So a Schiff staffer and a former John McCain adviser that pushed the fake news dossier meet in Ukraine 12 days after a complaint was filed by the “whistleblower,” paid for by a group with ties to Hunter Biden. If this doesn’t wreak of setup and corruption I don’t know what does.
