One interesting part of the timeline is that barely a month after the sniper attack on prosecutor Shokin, Joe Biden demanded that Shokin be replaced by Lutsenko in an aggressive gangsterish manner. Granted, Joe Biden isn't the only guy who wanted Shokin gone. In a country like Ukraine there are a lot of criminals who would have a significant financial interest in extorting, killing or bribing the prosecutor. So it's no absolute proof. A lot of people could have ordered the hit. That opens the question of whether or not the assassination attempt was orchestrated by the Obama administration. And even if it was, at this point, would it be in America's post-swamp era foreign policy interests to ever admit it? Too much of a touchy subject?
