Lutsenko is probing a claim from a member of the Ukrainian parliament that the director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), Artem Sytnyk, attempted to the benefit of the 2016 U.S. presidential election on behalf of Hillary Clinton.
“According to the member of parliament of Ukraine, he got the court decision that the NABU official conducted an illegal intrusion into the American election campaign," Lutsenko said. "It means that we think Mr. Sytnyk, the NABU director, officially talked about criminal investigation with Mr. [Paul] Manafort, and at the same time, Mr. Sytnyk stressed that in such a way, he wanted to assist the campaign of Ms. Clinton," he continued.
This member of parliament even attached the audio tape where several men, one of which had a voice similar to the voice of Mr. Sytnyk, discussed the matter.

Do I care about foreign corruption? Yes. Do I particuarly see anything here yet..No not at all. Looking at Sytnyk his name always comes up when it comes to corruption, both in Ukraine and foreign affairs. Ukraine's anticorruption groups look like a complete disaster, with everyone in them being accused of different things leading to many investigations. If the stuff about Syntyk was true he was trying to stick his hand in many pots.
Getting to this particular invesigation. The only evidence we have is somebody that sounds like Syntyk on a tape, it said he'd like to help the Clinton Campaign, it doesnt show any evidence that he ever made contact with the Clinton Campaign, or provided any aid to them in a way that the Clinton's could have known about. There is some evidence that Syntyk is an anti-Yanukovich/Manafort guy so him thinking that he wouldnt want the campaign with Manafort on it to win isnt a huge stretch.
I dont think Clinton is clean either, I just know how this article, like everything is else is going to be presented as some kind of damning evidence that Clinton was doing somethign illegal and its just not.
