In January of 2020, UncoverDC reported on the arrest of Lev Parnas, a prominent figure in the impeachment saga of President Trump, and an alleged ally of the President’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.
In the story, we uncovered that a group called the “Campaign Legal Center”, linked to George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, was behind the FEC complaints that led to the arrest, with the first complaint being filed in 2018, and then another second complaint (that led to the criminal indictment) filed on June 20th of 2019.
New information found in the release of the report today entitled “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Policy and Related Concerns” sheds light on precisely who was involved with the June complaint that ultimately led to the indictment. Sally Painter likely knew of and perhaps influenced, the complaint ultimately filed by Soros backed not-for-profit Campaign Legal Center. On June 18th, just two days before the supplemental complaint filed by CLC, Painter messaged Andrii Telizhenko simply “Complaint Filed”, directly after a message discussing the Democrat’s planned investigation into Rudy Giuliani for trips he took to Ukraine to investigate the Biden/Burisma corruption.
Painter, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of Blue Star Strategies, a powerful “Democrat Lobby Shop” as per the report, was questioned in the committee’s investigation. Blue Star Strategies plays a large role in the Ukraine controversy and the democrat’s impeachment case, as the LLC was hired by Burisma in 2015 to work on various matters. They are a member of the US-Ukraine Business Council, an organization that hosted Democrat “star” witness William B Taylor, as UncoverDC reported here. Taylor also worked on the board of a Soros funded NGO.
Painter also sits on the Board of Directors of the Atlantic Council, an organization with integral associates connected to the impeachment of President Trump (along with other controversies over the years). The report goes into detail about a Blue Star engagement with Burisma that lasted several years, as well as Blue Star’s employment of Andrii Telizhenko, a former official at the Ukraine embassy, and one of the main players to come forward and speak about the 2016 election interference by Ukraine.
History with Burisma
Blue Star Strategies was contracted by Burisma in November of 2015, and the report outlines meetings Blue Star was involved in around the time that Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin was fired. A now-infamous video of Biden discussing the dismissal of Shokin has been used to show clear evidence of Biden exerting his political influence to withhold aid from Ukraine, should they not fire the prosecutor looking into his son’s company. There was much outreach between Blue Star and the State Department, as well as clear evidence that Blue Star was integral to the controversial loan guarantees from the US to Ukraine.
Also at the meetings with Blue Star executives, Ukrainian officials, and the State Department, was Andrii Telizhenko, a key player in Blue Star’s work with Burisma. In addition to his work at the embassy, Telizhenko was employed by Blue Star until 2017. Even after his employment with them ended, Blue Star principals remained in contact with Telizhenko years later, and Painter accepted his advice and maintained contact with him until as late as August of 2019.
