Damning audio lands members of the Clinton campaign in hot seats.
An audio recording made public in the Ukrainian media was the piece of evidence that proof Ukraine’s actually interfered in the 2016 election.
According to the audio recording, a person with a voice similar to the voice of the head of Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU), Artem Sytnyk, admitted that he had supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US election and that his office was responsible for publicly disclosing the contents of the Ukrainian “black ledger” (a content which implicated Paul Manafort), to the media.
Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.
The leak of the so-called black ledger files to U.S. media prompted Manafort’s resignation from the Trump campaign and gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe Democrats have used to hunt Trump for the last two and a half years.
