Ex-Trump campaign aide Rick Gates testifies against former Obama counsel Gregory Craig

Former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates testified in federal court Thursday against Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig about the ex-counsel's Ukraine-related work for Paul Manafort, Politico reported.

Gates was a top lieutenant to Manafort, a former Trump campaign chairman, for approximately 10 years. During that time, Manafort supervised a 2012 review conducted by Craig of the abuse-of-power trial of ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, according to Politico.

While the review was presented as an independent probe of the trial, it was commissioned by Manafort's primary client, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, and bankrolled by Victor Pinchuk, a steel oligarch and Yanukovych backer.

Federal prosecutors have charged Craig with lying about the nature of the work and whether he was required to register as a foreign agent, though he has not been charged with violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

The media ignored Ukrainian-Obama Connection.

And they're also ignoring Biden and his son's connection. But if Biden is the nominee, the Trump campaign will make it an unavoidable topic.

The media ignored everything Obama did against America and Americans. We’re paying for those mistakes now.....and they are still ignoring BHO as he and the mrs. work against President Trump and his administration or anything remotely connected to this POTUS.
