Oleksandr Onyshchenko, who worked closely with Ukraine's previous president before fleeing the country after being accused of embezzlement and has claimed to have dirt on a company linked to the Bidens, has been living in Europe for several years. German authorities arrested him in Aachen on Friday.

German authorities arrested Onyshchenko based on a request from Ukraine's National Anti-Corruption Bureau and Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO)....

As the impeachment proceedings against President Trump took hold in October, Onyshchenko claimed to have inside information about Hunter Biden and his work for Burisma.

In early November, Onyshchenko told the obscure right-wing news site CD Media that "there were official' and unofficial' payments to the Biden family" made by Burisma and that an FBI agent "directed the coverup of the Biden scandal at the time, in concert with the U.S. embassy in Kyiv, and other Deep State American government assets in-country.'" The claim resembled the same conspiracy theories spun by Giuliani in his successful campaign to oust former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.

In subsequent interviews, Onyshchenko made other fantastic claims, including that Burisma had paid $10 million to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign through "big bags of cash" sent instead of wire transfers.

On Tuesday, as news of Onyschenko's arrest broke, CD Media published a report claiming he was "heading to the U.S." to testify against Biden when he was arrested in Germany. The report was accompanied by a screenshot of a U.S. visa application the Ukrainian politician had purportedly submitted last week to the U.S. embassy in Budapest, Hungary.

The fugitive Ukrainian was stripped of parliamentary immunity in 2016 and accused of embezzling some $64 million from a subsidiary of Naftogaz, Ukraine's state-owned gas company. A former member of ousted Kremlin-backed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanuykovych's Party of Regions, Onyshchenko was also accused by Ukraine's Security Service of treason in late 2016 of allegedly helping Russian intelligence destabilize Ukraine.

Wonder if he's ever met with Rudy? This guy hits the trifecta claiming malfeasance by both Bidens, Hillary, and the US deep state all in a deranged plot even beyond Putin's most fevered dreams.

Hillary killed Trump and has been wearing a trump suit for the last 3 years. That is why Melania doesn't sleep in the same bedroom as Trump.
