Here’s something the liberal media will dutifully ignore.
While the Democrats are freaking out over their latest obsession in Ukraine, they apparently have forgotten that the Obama administration asked Ukraine to investigate Paul Manafort.
Flashback: Obama Admin Asked Ukraine to Investigate Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort
Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy noted at National Review on Thursday that then-President Barack Obama’s administration asked Ukraine to investigate Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, in 2016.
McCarthy notes the double standard — that Democrats want to impeach Trump for doing what Obama did — and which they have been telling the world for years was necessary to do to protect American national security.
As House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told NBC News in March, his investigation into Trump dealt with “a present threat to our national security — whether the president and anybody around him are compromised by a foreign power.” If Trump colluded with Russia, or if the Russians had compromising information about him, they could hold enormous influence over the Trump administration — hence the need for investigation.
That is how Democrats defended the decision by intelligence and law enforcement officials under President Obama to conduct surveillance of Trump campaign associates — without warning Trump himself in a “defensive” briefing.
This seems like kind of a big deal, doesn’t it?
Oh, by the way — the Obama administration told Ukraine to investigate Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Democrat party is covering up a pattern of corruption involving high level members of the Obama cabinet. The multi-million and billion dollar pay-for-play is mind boggling. Biden Family sale of office to Ukraine was not the only one or the most egregious. Slimy Joe is not alone.

Is anyone in the liberal media even going to cover this?
