Another "Imagine If It Was A GOPer" Story

Just broke at The Federalist: Ukrainian Oligarch Paid $700,000 To The Husband Of A House Judiciary Committee Democrat. It was for legal service, so that's OK, right?

The oligarch in question--for some reason The Federalist doesn't link his Wikipedia page--is Igor Kolomoisky, described as "a Cypriot-Ukrainian billionaire business oligarch." Kolomoisky is one of those triple citizenship guys--a veritable citizenship collector. Hey, ya never know when one of those will come in handy! Ukraine, Cyprus, Israel. I guess Cyprus is for money laundering purposes.

Here are the opening paragraphs--follow the link for details:

Robert Powell, the husband of Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., reportedly took $700,000 from a Ukrainian oligarch named Igor Kolomoisky. Mucarsel-Powell sits on the House Judiciary Committee, the committee that drafted two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump for his alleged abuse of power with regards to Ukraine. 
In 2018, the Daily Beast reported that a number of businesses linked to Kolomoisky hired Powell as an attorney. One of those firms paid Powell at least $700,000 over two years, according to public records. 
The Miami Herald reported Powell was working for companies tied to Kolomoisky for 10 years. Powell made most of his money in the two years leading up to his wife’s election in 2018. 
Kolomoisky has been accused of contract killings and embezzlement in the past. Yet, in 2018 when Mucarsel-Powell was running for her seat, she did not see her husband’s work as relevant to her campaign.

And there's more. Maybe Dems think someone who knows how to arrange contract killings could come in handy.

ADDENDUM: Totally unrelated, except that it's all about Lefty sleaze and dishonesty, is this piece from AmThinker: Greta Thunberg paints her German train ride as cattle car deal, actually rode first class.


  1. C'mon on Mr. Wauck! Do you expect me to believe that Time's 2019 Man of the Year would lie about her experience on a subway trip?

  2. Even worse than Greta Thunberg riding in a cattle car is cadets openly showing the racist "OK" symbol on TV. The brazen racists.

    It's a good thing that we have the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center on the case.

    I sleep better at night knowing that they are looking out for me.

  3. Thomas Lifson at AT has an excellent post about a Schiff town hall being interrupted by hecklers. Here is the link.

  4. I finished watching the video of Schiff's town hall. It gets pretty scary at the end. I can easily see one of these melees where someone brings a gun and uses it in the heat of the moment. It's really scary to think about.

    Schiff appears frozen on the screen. Devin Nunes says that Schiff is not beyond redemption. I hope he recoils from what he has helped to release and repents.

    I've said for a long time that our country is a tinder box. All we need is a match to be struck at the wrong place and at the wrong time.

  5. I knew I'd seen this story somewhere before, certainly earlier this year:

    That's from July 2018 in the Miami Herald. I doubt I read this original story, but it is linked to in The Federalist article.

    Considering the distractions DNC-MSM keeps offering up--to paper over stories like this--you can be sure news or "news" are the last things being published.
