Former US @SpecRepUkraine #KurtVolker provided testimony to the #HouseIntelligenceCommittee on Oct 3.

He contradicted several of the claims of the #WhistleblowerComplaint at the center of the Democrat's #ImpeachmentInquiry of President Trump. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/ukraine-envoys…
Volker told lawmakers he did not partake in urging #Ukraine to investigate @JoeBiden.

The testimony directly contradicted a hearsay claim in the anonymous #WhistleblowersComplaint suggesting that #Volker and the @USAmbEU, #GordonSondland engaged with Ukrainian officials to…
…help them handle Trump’s request to investigate #Biden.

“[At] no time was I aware of or took part in an effort to urge Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Biden,” Volker said. scribd.com/document/42877…

@4st8 We need to contrast the #impeachment response between *centrist* PA Congressmen Conor Lamb (D-#PA17) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-#PA01), here together recently burnishing their independent, bipartisan cred during #OnePA district swaps
@4st8 Both are lawyers (Lamb former Assistant US Atty & Fitzpatrick former Special Assistant US Atty), highly capable of evaluating the emerging evidence in the #TrumpUkraineScandal...
@4st8 But @RepBrianFitz has an additional unique area of expertise in his backbround which should bring his opinion into sharp focus: he was there. #Kyiv 2015

What we see in #Ukraine today is that people don't want to believe what they see with their own eyes, and what they hear directly from #Zelensky. The mix of people's hopefulness and Zelensky's #populism is blinding them to reality.

There is clear evidence that #Russia-connected #Yanukovych era power brokers have influence in #Zelensky's power vertical. Yet people pretend either that this isn't happening, or that it is not relevant, and will not impact Zelensky's presidency.

#Zelensky's inaugural speech echoed several RU propaganda narratives:
-#Kyiv is "responsible for continuation of war
-Kyiv "neglected RU speakers"
-Kyiv "abandoned people in occupied UA"
-"#Ukrainian is divisive factor in UA"
-"post-Maidan govt was the biggest problem in UA"

While #Mueller concluded there was no evidence of #RussianCollusion from the Trump campaign, some of the key people in creating the narrative have ties to #Ukraine. theepochtimes.com/ties-to-ukrain…
Both the @DNC as well as #FusionGPS—the company hired by the #DNC and the #ClintonCampaign to research the Trump campaign—were using #Ukrainian sources in their efforts to discredit Trump.

Serhiy #Leshchenko, a member of the #Ukraine's Parliament, was a common thread involved…
… in Democratic opposition research efforts into former Trump campaign Chairman #PaulManafort.

#Leshchenko, along with Artem #Sytnyk, was responsible for publicly disclosing the contents of the #Ukrainian “black ledger,” which implicated #Manafort, to the media.

#Ukrainian police commanders launch "I am Bandera" flesh mob in honor of leader of ultranationalist and semi-fascist OUN, which collaborated with #Nazi Germany at beginning & end of #WW2 & was involved in mass murder of Poles, #Jews, Ukrainians & #Russians pravda.com.ua/news/2019/02/1…
Bandera flesh mob is launched after neo-Nazi C14 attacked #Kyiv district #Police headquarters following detention of C14 activists with knives & other weapons at Tymoshenko eection rally. Prosecutor General Office of #Ukraine investigates police for detaining neo-Nazi activists.
Detention of neo-Nazi C14 activists, who admit collaboration with SBU, at Tymoshenko election rally is another evidence of Avakov defection to Tymoshenko. But Bandera flesh mob shows that regime & far right are united in worshiping Nazi collaborator & mass murderer.

Having a good time with #NewYearsEve?
Let me ruin it with this map of the military situation in Eastern Europe, which shows us:

1) #Russia's massive military buildup vs. #Ukraine & #Europe: 33x brigades & 35x regiments. (@USarmy in total: 31x brigades & 7x regiments/groups)

1/7
2) If #Russia annexes #Belarus, then #Putin will forward deploy his tanks to #Poland's border & the doorstep of #Lithuania's capital #Vilnius. He will also threaten #Ukraine's capital #Kyiv from the #North and it will be easy for Russian troops to close the #Suwalki Gap.

2/7
3) #Poland's best brigades are based near #Germany. They must move East to protect #Warsaw & be an operational reserve to come to the aid of #Lithuania. Poland also needs more tanks; & modern attack helicopters, infantry fighting vehicles, fighters, guided missile artillery.

3/7
