an interesting connection between George Kent and alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella. On Dec 9, 2015, exactly as Biden effort to link IMF $1 billion to Shokin removal was coalescing, Ciaramella met Daria Kaleniuk of the StateDept+Soros funded Anti-Corruption Action Center.
2/ two weeks later, ANTAC stated "one of [its] major goals for 2016 is to force Shokin to resign". ANTAC had already opposed Shokin, but their efforts seem to have ratcheted up after meeting with Ciaramella.
3/ in March 2016, as pressure on Shokin intensified, Shokin launched a counter-investigation on ANTAC and US role in directly funding opposition to the Ukrainian administration. On very day of Shokin's removal (Mar 29), Ukr Prosecutor General Office sent letter to US embassy.
4/ in George Kent's Oct 15 testimony, he repeatedly purported to rationalize US interference in internal affairs and staffing of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Office because they were using US taxpayer money
5/ yet when Shokin and Ukr Prosecutor General Office expressed concern about use of US taxpayer money to fund opposition ANTAC, US Embassy told Ukr Prosecutor General not to investigate ANTAC or US-funded cells within the Proscutor's office
6/ who signed the US letter telling Ukr Prosecutor General not to investigate ANTAC, whose leader, Daria Kaleniuk, had been briefed by Eric Ciaramella only a few months earlier in Washington? ......drumroll: George Kent.

Small world.
7/ readers should also recall that Ciaramella hosted meeting in Washington on Jan 19, 2016 at which designated Ukr prosecutors were informed of planned linkage of IMF $1billion to Shokin removal (the Biden quid pro quo). See previous thead
8/ these seem like they would have been relevant lines of questioning for Republican lawyers and congressmen. Quality of research seems very poor.
9/ just prior to her meeting with Newcombe and Ciaramella, @dkaleniuk was interviewed by WSJ archive.is/I5vXG in connection with then breaking news about Hunter Biden. She clearly explained the corruption: the "investigator will be uncomfortable pushing the case forward".
@dkaleniuk 10/ @dkaleniuk made more or less identical criticism of Hunter Biden's role in interview with Vice on Dec 7, 2015
vice.com/en_us/article/…. To paraphrase, Burisma was paying Biden as a sort of scarecrow to intimidate Ukrainian prosecutors
@dkaleniuk 11/ @dkaleniuk responded that she doesn't recall her meeting with Ciaramella as she met "hundreds" of US officials over past 4 years. I'm surprised that she doesn't remember something as exceptional as a visit to the White House. Maybe she has notes that will refresh her memory
