Ukrainian members of parliament have demanded the presidents of Ukraine and the United States, Volodymyr Zelensky and Donald Trump, investigate suspicions of the legalization of $7.4 billion by the "family" of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych through the American investment fund Franklin Templeton Investments, which they said has ties to the U.S. Democratic Party.
As reported, on October 9, 2019, Derkach published official correspondence between NABU and the U.S. Embassy, according to which the first deputy of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), Gizo Uglava, through his assistant Polina Chyzh, for a long time provided the U.S. Embassy with information that negatively affected the course of events in Ukraine and the United States.
Derkach said Chyzh received instructions from the representative of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine Hanna Emelyanova to provide information on the case involving Zlochevsky.
... "the Yanukovych 'family' illegally obtained $7.4 billion and laundered the funds through an investment fund close to some representatives of the U.S. Democratic Party in the form of external government loan bonds."
Meanwhile, Derkach said that several facts indicate Franklin Templeton Investments' relationship with the U.S. Democratic Party.
"The son of Templeton's founder, John Templeton Jr., was one of President Obama's major campaign donors. Another fund-related character is Thomas Donilon. Managing Director of BlackRock Investment Institute, shareholder Franklin Templeton Investments, which has the largest share in the fund. It is noteworthy that he previously was Obama's national security advisor," Derkach said.
Derkach also announced the amount of money transferred to representatives of the Burisma Group, including Hunter Biden. According to documents, in general, in favor of Hunter Biden, Alexander Kwasniewski, Alan Apter and Devon Archer, Burisma paid about $16.5 million.

Don't forget a potential money laundering scheme to steal billions from the American Taxpayer.
For example, Ukraine. We the taxpayer have been giving them "aid" in the billions over the years to "help them" resist a Russian invasion. That money goes to crooked oligarchs, we already have clear proof of that. A percentage of this stolen money, in turn gets "donated" to the Clinton Foundation. This foundation pays the primaries and their families (Hello Chelsea, we still see you there) big bucks to "work" the foundation. Now, you have the laundry (i.e. $$$$$) cleaned and in the pockets of the Clinton family. Not to be outdone, the Biden family got their share of this ill gotten booty by placing little Hunter on the board of one of the most corrupt businesses in that country. More laundered money now going into that families coffers. That move by the Biden's seemed to piss off the Clinton family (muscling in on their territory), so, they in turn got the Ukraine call exposed via their puppet Adam Schiff. This way the Clinton's are not fighting on two fronts (Trump and Biden) to preserve their "foundation" from going into the toilet.
Trump knew this was going on, and shook that tree by working with a new Ukrainian president that ran and won on a platform of breaking up that exact corruption that was paying the Clinton's (and everyone around them) their big $$$$.
Why do you think there is soooooo much screeching about him putting a hold on the "aid", asking the new Ukrainian president to stick to his platform to root out corruption, and jeopardizing both the Clinton and Biden money streams?
This impeachment is merely a way for those corrupt families to attack the person that is in their way, is disrupting the flow of money. He is too public a feature to be "taken care of" in the usual manner, so, they need to ensure he does NOT get reelected, AT ALL COST.
ETA: Added a few additional thoughts from the original post.

Just as I posted in another thread (Clinton Foundation running aground), it also links to the Clinton Foundation troubles raising money these days now that the "family" cannot directly influence the $$$ distribution channel. (see below)
