It was reported on Thursday that the United States Treasury Department accused Andriy Derkach of being “an active Russian agent for over a decade.”
Derkach is the same man that has been working with Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on trying to obtain dirt on presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Shortly after news broke out about Derkach being a Russian agent, Giuliani appeared to admit that he allowed himself to be spoofed by him.
Giuliani met with Derkach in his efforts to efforts to pin a Ukrainian scandal on Biden, which was part of the series of events over which Trump was impeached.
