Isn’t this interesting… one of the rabid Democratic attorney generals who attacked President Trump for his non-existent ties to Russia, has himself been caught taking donations from an energy tycoon out of the Ukraine that has ties to Vladimir Putin. This hasn’t been in the news at all. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has accepted more than $60,000 in donations from Leonard Blavatnik, who is a Ukrainian energy billionaire. Now, why do you think someone like that would be greasing the palm of a New York AG? It can’t be for anything good.
People like this don’t give money to certain politicians for no reason. We don’t buy this guy’s energy, so I’d really like to know why he’s giving heavy change to Schneiderman. He has raised $1.7 million in contributions during the first half of this year alone. Blavatnik has been involved in Russia’s oil industry for several years. One of his primary financial ventures, AAR, sold a 50 percent stake in energy company TNK, one of Russia’s largest oil companies, where Blavatnik served on the board of directors. The ties that bind this guy to Putin look pretty darn deep to me.
