Yulia Tymoshenko was one of the leaders of Ukraine's Orange Revolution. She was later elected Prime Minister and served from 07-10. She ran for president in 2010 against Viktor Yanukovych.
Yanukovych won that election, with the help of Paul Manafort. A year later, Yulia Tymoshenko was charged with abuse of office arising from certain natural gas deals with Russia
The charges and her imprisonment were seen as politically motivated (duh).
the Ukrainian gov't commissioned a report from international law firm Skadden Arps, which concluded that politics weren't involved.
Then lied to investigators about it - hence indictment
So brings me to the question:
why was Gates seeking info about the 2012 trial of Tymoshenko while serving on the Trump campaign in September 2016? 😉
Might it be the money Manafort/Gates owed Oleg Deripaska perhaps?
I don't like co-incidences like this, whereby Manafort LIVED in Trump tower, which Trump just so happened to tap him to be his NSA?! hmm...
The servers originated in Trump tower too...
There's a LOT more to this, but I suspect it's Mueller signalling time is nigh
Lastly - page 25 of the Steele Dossier specifically references the father of the accused German Khan: bit.ly/2idMtlv
The Russian government figure reported that although they had had their ups and downs, Alpha currently were on very good terms with PUTIN.
Here's the lawyers archived profile, as he's allegedly been sweiftly fired from his former lawfirm (hehe)
IMHO - this could be #Muller' signal to lawyers involved with the probe. If you lie, or lie for your clients, or destroy evidence - we have you, we WILL take you down.
It's laundry day for many of these lawyers today, I bet.
In May 2016 - Alfa bank sues Buzzfeed for publishing the dossier
In June, President Trump nominated Brian Benczkowski, the bank's former attorney, to be United States Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division
