Let’s take the Biden ’dirt’ hunt aspect out of the story & set it aside as a horrific diversion for now.

The truth is much worse.

Remember the Cohen, Sater, Flynn, Manafort & Artemenko “Ukrainian Peace Plan” circa Feb 2017?

Putin quid pro quo?

📌Michael Cohen, presented a sealed envelope to then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn containing a secret peace plan to resolve the three-year conflict in Ukraine.
🔑The plan, according to the report, would have Russian forces pull out of eastern Ukraine, and have Ukraine conduct a referendum on whether Crimea would be leased to Russia for 50 or 100 years.

🔑It also outlined a way to lift sanctions on Russia.
Those pushing the plan:

Michael D. Cohen, who delivered the document;

Felix H. Sater, who helped Mr. Trump scout deals in Russia;

& a Ukrainian lawmaker Andrii V. Artemenko trying to rise in a political opposition movement shaped in part by Manafort.
Artemenko claims to have
“names of companies, wire transfers” — showing corruption by the Ukrainian president, Petro O. Poroshenko, that could help oust him.

🔑And Mr. Artemenko said he had received encouragement for his plans from top aides to Putin.
“A lot of people will call me a Russian agent, a U.S. agent, a C.I.A. agent,” Mr. Artemenko said.
🔑The reported plan raised hackles in Kiev, and not just because it would, in one form or another, recognize Crimea as part of Russia.
Mueller probed Ukrainian who pitched peace plan to White House
The Ukrainian politician tried to shuttle his plan to the White House via two Trump associates now of interest to investigators — Felix Sater and Michael Cohen.

📌But while the peace plan was an interesting sidebar in most American coverage of the Mueller investigation, it unleashed a major scandal in Ukraine.
Artemenko was already an outspoken critic of the country’s president, Petro Poroshenko, and government officials did not take kindly to his attempt to do an end run around their own peace negotiations.

As egrigeous as this is, continue to set this issue aside for the moment.

It’s a puzzle piece— a media diversion. @maddow @MaddowBlog
“He told him that he should work with [Mr. Giu­liani] on Biden, and that peo­ple in Wash­ing­ton wanted to know” whether al­le­ga­tions were true or not,

📌Note how this story broke last night, but Giuliani was apparently pre booked on @cnn @ChrisCuomo

🔑Ukraine’s New President Zelensky Hints At Peace With Russia



Ukraine’s new gov’t, led by Vladimir Zelensky, is going to tick off a lot of people in the West whose job it is to make Putin look like Goldfinger.


Zelensky thinks Vladimir “Goldfinger” Putin wants to normalize relations.
🔑Zelensky also made overtures to abiding more closely to the Minsk peace deal with Russia, which would require voting in the breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.

🔑If the republics of Donetsk and Luhansk “breakaway” it would be impossible for a divided Ukraine to join NATO.

As it is, Crimea is now part of Russia.

🔑Putin would love it, if he could prevent URN from joining NATO.
