Mueller Reportedly Investigating Ukraine Payment To Trump Foundation
Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly looking into a payment that a Ukrainian steel magnate made to President Trump's foundation in exchange for a 20-minute video appearance to a conference.
The New York Times reported Monday that Mueller is investigating the $150,000 donation to the Donald J. Trump Foundation that Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk made in September 2015, while Trump was seeking the GOP nomination for president.
The payment came after Trump spoke through a video link to a conference in Kiev, according to the Times.
Between 2009 and 2013, including when Mrs. Clinton was secretary of state, the Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, according to that foundation, which is based in Kiev, Ukraine. It was created by Mr. Pinchuk, whose fortune stems from a pipe-making company. He served two terms as an elected member of the Ukrainian Parliament and is a proponent of closer ties between Ukraine and the European Union.
Unsurprisingly, Pinchuk and his family are no angels.
He is the son-in-law of a former president of Ukraine whose administration was marred by endemic corruption and human rights violations - exactly the type of donor who would give to the Clinton Foundation
In 2008, Pinchuk made a five-year $29 million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative, according to the Wall Street Journal.
All told, Pinchuk gave more than $13 million to the Clinton Foundation since 2006, and promised to give more.

Lets see....Pinchuk has donated more than 13 million dollars
to The Clinton Foundation per the NYT.
13 million vs 150k
This is laughable...

Why is Trump making deals with someone who supports the Clinton Foundation? Also, why is this guy paying his supposed political enemy (Trump) to speak at his event? That's the real head-scratcher here.
