Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani went to Ukraine to get them to launch an investigation into the Bidens.
But instead he managed to get them to start an investigation into himself! So, ironically, that makes him an ‘anti-fixer’—the person you hire to make your problems worse.
Ukrainian authorities have announced they are opening a criminal investigation into who was spying on Marie Yovanovitch, while she was the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.
Congratulations to Trump on finally getting Ukraine to announce an investigation into some Americans.

Or as Mark Dery tweeted, “The God of Irony is well-pleased. Ukraine has finally given our Insane Clown Prez the investigation he and Rudy arm-twisted and wheedled for!”
The announcement came after new material released by Giuliani’s former associate Lev Parnas indicated she was being followed.
In the text messages, Republican congressional candidate Robert Hyde appeared to suggest to Lev Parnas that he had people following Yovanovitch.
According to ABC News, Ukraine’s Interior Ministry released this statement
“Ukraine’s position is not to interfere in the domestic affairs of the United States of America. However, the published records contain the fact of possible violation of the legislation of Ukraine and the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, which protects the rights of a diplomat in the territory of another country.”
“After analyzing these materials, the National Police of Ukraine upon their publication started criminal proceedings under part 2 of Art. 163 (Violation of the secrecy of correspondence, telephone conversations, telegraph or other correspondence) and part 1 of Art. 182 (Unlawful collection, storage, use of confidential information about a person, violation of privacy) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.”
Robert Hyde says he was just joking around and denies spying on a U.S. Ambassador.
