Andrii Telizhenko was a political officer in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, D.C. who attended a January 19, 2016 White House meeting where Obama administration officials asked Ukrainian prosecutors to clear Hunter Biden and Burisma Holdings of corruption allegations and reopen a case on Paul Manafort who previously had been cleared of any wrongdoing. According to White House visitor logs, the National Security Council official who sign Telizhenko into the White House was Eric Ciaramella, later was identified as the alleged "whistleblower" in the Trump impeachment sham.
Telizhenko has repeatedly stated that DNC paid employee Alexandra Chalupa worked closely with the Ukrainian Embassy to obtain information on candidate Donald Trump. In an interview with the Gateway Pundit, Telizhenko said he met Chalupa in the spring of 2016 at the Ukrainian Embassy, where Chalupa told him she was “a DNC operative working for the DNC” and the “Clinton campaign.” Telizhenko continued, noting that Chalupa said she was “collecting any dirt or background information on Manafort, presidential candidate Trump or any other campaign official from the Trump campaign” and was looking for “connections to Russia or the FSB or Russian mob, or Ukrainian mob, etc.” According to Telizhenko, Chalupa said the information would “be used for committee hearings in Congress under a congresswoman.”In January 2017, Telizhenko told Politico that Chalupa said, “If we can get enough information on Paul [Manafort] or Trump’s involvement with Russia, she [Marcy Kaptur] can get a hearing in Congress by September .” Telizhenko summed it up succinctly, tweeting
“The Clinton campaign had a Democratic operative working with Ukraine’s embassy in Washington to research Trump’s Russia ties, as well as a Ukrainian lawmaker feeding information to Fusion GPS.”
The “Democratic operative” refers to Alexandra 'Ali' Chalupa, while the “Ukrainian lawmaker” refers to Serhiy Leshchenko. Chalupa, while on the payroll of the DNC, was paid to work with a foreign government to obtain dirt on political rivals, Paul Manafort and Donald Trump. Nellie Ohr, wife of disgraced Obama DOJ Assistant Attorney General Bruce Ohr, testified that while she was working for FusionGPS, she was given leads from "someone named Serhiy Leshchenko, a Ukrainian.” Leshchenko revealed the existence of the so-called Ukrainian “Black Ledger,” which allegedly contained a list of secret payments made to Paul Manafort.
