    Question Ukraine political scandal of 2019

    Stumbled on this old clip, anyone knows what is exactly shown on the background slide @ 11:03 - 11:30 mark in this vid dated Feb 12, 2019? Speaker's brief description does not match words that are visible, seemed bit weird.

    Tried to lookup 2019 Ukraine political news, haedlines like following popped up but did not see any reporting on fakenews listed in that slide.

    Giuliani pressed Ukrainians to probe Biden allegations in 2019 call -CNN


    2 minute read

    WASHINGTON, June 7 (Reuters) - The audiotape of a July 2019 phone call shows former U.S. President Donald Trump's then-lawyer Rudy Giuliani pressuring Ukrainian officials to investigate baseless allegations about Trump's 2020 election rival Joe Biden, CNN reported on Monday.
    CNN said it had obtained the audio of the call between Giuliani, U.S. diplomat Kurt Volker, and Andriy Yermak, a senior adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, which it said was the precursor of a Trump-Zelenskiy call that was at the center of Trump's 2019 impeachment.
    In the call, Giuliani said he wanted Zelenskiy to say he was putting a prosecutor in charge and "he's gonna investigate and dig up the evidence, that presently exists and is there any other evidence about involvement of the 2016 election, and then the Biden thing has to be run out," according to CNN.
    Trump, a Republican, denounced as a political witch hunt allegations that he pressed Zelenskiy during a phone call to dig up dirt on Biden. The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump in December 2019, but he was acquitted by the then-Republican-dominated Senate early in 2020.

    On an unrelated note, another weird news story, Mike Pence has indicated that he will be running on 2024:

    Book details how Mike Pence deferred to Jared Kushner like a 'supplicant' during meetings on the COVID crisis

    Cheryl Teh

    A new book on the Trump Administration wrote that former Vice President Mike Pence showed a lot of deference during COVID task force meetings to Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner. While former Vice President Mike Pence was the one officially tapped to lead America's COVID response, it was Jared Kushner who was really in charge behind the scenes, says a new book.

    An excerpt from "I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump's Catastrophic Final Year" by Washington Post journalists Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker said Pence "sounded like a supplicant" to Kushner, the former president's son-in-law.
    In the book, the authors said in one COVID task force meeting, it was "awkwardly clear" to those sitting in that Kushner was the one calling the shots, not Pence.
    The authors wrote that the former vice president asked during the meeting: "Jared, what do you think?" and "Jared, what would you do?"

    Meanwhile, Kushner was leading the session, examining data presented to him by Trump coronavirus task force coordinator Deborah Birx and "(challenging) other speakers" in the meeting.
    An elected official like Pence showing deference to Kushner was "nauseating" to one attendee, the book's authors wrote.

    Insider reported on July 15 that in the same book, the authors wrote that Kushner said Pence got to be America's coronavirus czar because the vice president "didn't have anything else to do."

    Kushner's sizeable shadow role in the COVID response might not be much of a surprise to those who read about his self-described COVID "impact squad" last year. Dubbed the "Slim Suit Crowd" by FEMA veterans, the team was composed of private-sector individuals with little public health experience.

    In the meantime, Pence has indicated that he will run for the White House in 2024.

    No wonder Biden administration looks so boring, all the covid fear news but without any infotainment of regular briefings to public that was hallmark of Pence Coronavirus taskforce leadership days.

    I think this is the text, I couldn't make out 3 words between "", followed by (?)...
    The USA is gaining total control over biological research facilities, researchers and stocks of deadly viruses in Ukraine.
    This "will allow" (?) the USA to control epidemiological situation in the region, get access to every development in the sphere and "manipulate" (?) population size while increasing American pharmaceutical corporations' profit.

    Thank you, that's more than I was able to read in the floating slide.

    Did not come across any related reports in US MSM but there is this EU media report that seems to blame such claims on Russian 'disinfo'. In quick browse, reading their reports is like following a rabbit hole.

    Disinfo: Coronavirus could have been created in a Ukrainian laboratory
