Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit was the first to interview Andrey Telizhenko in the Ukrainian collusion sandal. Teleizhenko met with CIA operative Eric Ciaramella in the Obama White House on January 19, 2016, as 2016 presidential election primaries were getting underway. Telizhenko reported that the subject of the meeting was the Obama administration putting pressure on Ukraine to kill the investigation into Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the company he worked for Burisma, and to find "new evidence" in a case against Paul Manafort which the FBI had already looked into in 2014 and dismissed.
