…though Halloween is weeks away
Kurt Volker recently resigned as U.S. envoy to Ukraine. He previously served as ambassador to NATO under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Volker joined the Trump State Department in 2017 when he was appointed by then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Since then, Volker, never considered a Trump insider, has been “mediating” the Ukrainian crisis on behalf of the United States. The Daily Caller has more here. The White House released the declassified and un-redacted transcript of President Donald Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that became the center of a so-called whistleblower complaint.
We don’t claim to be experts on intrigue associated with international relations. But Kurt Volker’s name is associated with the McCain Institute for International Leadership on the grounds of Arizona State University and also in DC, raising the curiosity antenna more than a few notches. One of its “guiding objectives” is self promotion: grandiosely stated as “Promote and preserve the McCain family legacy of character-driven leadership and national service.”
Kurt Volker, scheduled to testify to congress Thursday, is drawing a salary of $330,000 as executive director of the McCain Institute, which receives funding from George Soros and a DC lobbying firm working for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, among others. Scroll down to the BGR Group and read the paragraph under the photo of Volker.
Where there’s been a McCain connection, Socialist one-worlder, multi-billionaire George Soros is never far away as SRAZ has previously pointed out:
