The ‘Star Witness’ Adam Schiff is Hiding in Basement Has Close Ties to Hunter’s Company ‘Burisma’

This is nothing more than a desperate fishing expedition, designed to illicit crumbs of "damning" information the Dems can use to try and take down Trump.

There’s a reason Adam Schiff is conducting his phony “impeachment inquiry” in the basement of the House, behind closed (and guarded) doors.

It’s because it’s all a farce.

This is nothing more than a desperate fishing expedition, designed to illicit crumbs of “damning” information the Dems can use to try and take down Trump.

This is why it’s being hidden from the public. 

The latest so-called “star witness” that Schiff has interviewed in named Bill Taylor, and he’s supposed to be a “bombshell” who can “prove” that Trump was involved in quid pro quo (even though the actual phone conservation in question proves there was no quid pro quo).

But facts don’t matter to Democrats. They’re going on 100% pure unhinged emotion.

Who is Bill Taylor?

He’s the acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, and he has a very, very close relationship  to Hunter Biden’s former company ‘Burisma.”

Taylor writes for the “Atlantic Council” a think tank funded by Burisma.

No wonder they’re interviewing this Deep State clown in a basement. 

The Atlantic Council is funded by and works in partnership with Burisma, the natural gas company at the center of allegations regarding Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

In addition to a direct relationship with the Atlantic Council, Taylor for the last nine years also served as a senior adviser to the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC), which has co-hosted events with the Atlantic Council and has participated in events co-hosted jointly by the Atlantic Council and Burisma.

Another senior adviser to the USUBC is David J. Kramer, a long-time adviser to late Senator John McCain. Kramer played a central role in disseminating the anti-Trump dossier to the news media and Obama administration. Taylor participated in events and initiatives organized by Kramer.

The links may be particularly instructive after Breitbart News reported that itinerary for a trip to Ukraine in August organized by the Burisma-funded Atlantic Council for ten Congressional aides reveals that a staffer on Rep. Adam Schiff’s House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence held a meeting during the trip with Taylor.  The pre-planned trip took place after the so-called whistleblower officially filed his August 12 complaint and reportedly after a Schiff aide was contacted by the so-called whistleblower.

Multiple U.S. media outlets yesterday obtained Taylor’s full opening statement to the House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees.

In the leaked pre-written full opening statement, Taylor alluded to work he said he did for a “small Ukrainian non- governmental organization” but he omitted the name of the organization.

“In the intervening 10 years, I have stayed engaged with Ukraine, visiting frequently since 2013 as a board member of a small Ukrainian non- governmental organization supporting good governance and reform,” he said.

The name of the organization is the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC), where Taylor served for nine years as senior advisor. The USUBC has co-hosted or participated in scores of events with the Atlantic Council. Taylor has also authored numerous analysis pieces published by the Atlantic Council itself and has co-authored opeds written together with the Atlantic Council’s director.

Burisma is a key financial backer of the Atlantic Council. In 2017, Burisma and the Atlantic Council signed a cooperative agreement to develop transatlantic programs with Burisma’s financial support reportedly to focus “on European and international energy security.” Burisma specifically finances the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center.

Besides funding the Atlantic Council, Burisma also routinely partners with the think tank. Only four months ago, the company co-hosted the Atlantic Council’s second Annual Kharkiv Security Conference.  Burisma advertises that it committed itself to “15 key principles of rule of law and economic policy in Ukraine developed by the Atlantic Council.” [Breitbart]
