John Solomon: As Russia Collusion Fades, Ukrainian Plot To Help Clinton Emerges


President Trump touted this segment of FNC's "Hannity" Wednesday night on Twitter, where The Hill's John Solomon discusses his report that Ukraine’s top prosecutor has opened an investigation into whether that country's government leaked documents about Paul Manafort's finances during the 2016 election.

"We don't know much about it, because it is floating around Ukraine," Solomon told Hannity Wednesday night. "But we do know the general prosecutor of Ukraine, the equivalent of our Attorney General, came on our show this morning and said the following: There's enough evidence for me to open up a criminal investigation into the illicit effort by a Ukrainian to try to influence the U.S election in favor of Hillary Clinton."

"That's a profound statement coming from the top law enforcement official in Ukraine," he continued. "Why is that important? There's a court in Ukraine that has already concluded that Ukrainian officials linked Paul Manafort's financial records to try to sway the election. You haven't heard anything about that in the American press, but that ruling occurred recently."

"And then a parliamentary member comes out and says he has a tape of these law enforcement officials saying they did it specifically to help Hillary Clinton," he continued. "That becomes the foundation of the Ukrainian investigation."
