So they can't get Pence, so they send PERRY to the new Ukraine President's inaugural. He is acting as the OFFICIAL US representative to see a new head of state take office. They're shaking down UKRAINE for dirt on BIDEN and his kid so they didn't wanna send anyone as important as PENCE. Perry, I guess made it worthwhile, to be sent as a substitute. PERRY SCORED A NICE BIG FAT CONTRACT FOR HIS MAIN CONTRIBUTORS OVER THE YEARS--A 50 YEAR GAS CONTRACT.
Who the fuck don't these people SHAKEDOWN? What or who isn't MANIPULATED for personal gain? Who doesn't have their hand out? Who ISN'T on the take!

KYIV, Ukraine — Two political supporters of U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry secured a potentially lucrative oil and gas exploration deal from the Ukrainian government soon after Perry proposed one of the men as an adviser to the country's new president.
Perry's efforts to influence Ukraine's energy policy came earlier this year, just as President Volodymyr Zelenskiy's new government was seeking military aid from the United States to defend against Russian aggression and allies of President Donald Trump were ramping up efforts to get the Ukrainians to investigate his Democratic rival Joe Biden.
Ukraine awarded the contract to Perry's supporters little more than a month after the U.S. energy secretary attended Zelenskiy's May inauguration. In a meeting during that trip, Perry handed the new president a list of people he recommended as energy advisers. One of the four names was his longtime political backer Michael Bleyzer.
A week later, Bleyzer and his partner Alex Cranberg submitted a bid to drill for oil and gas at a sprawling government-controlled site called Varvynska. They offered millions of dollars less to the Ukrainian government than their only competitor for the drilling rights, according to internal Ukrainian government documents obtained by The Associated Press. But their newly created joint venture, Ukrainian Energy, was awarded the 50-year contract because a government-appointed commission determined they had greater technical expertise and stronger financial backing, the documents show.
