Joe Biden has appointed Penny Pritzker, a noted Obama affiliate and billionaire heiress, to spearhead Ukraine’s economic rebuilding amid the ongoing war in the corrupt eastern European nation. Pritzker, a linchpin in Chicago’s elite circles and heir to the Hyatt hotel empire served as the commerce secretary under Obama.
The appointment was initially announced by National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, an ardent advocate of the Russia collusion narrative launched by Democrats and the compliant corporate media against President Donald Trump. Sullivan said Pritzker’s role would be to “engage the private sector, partner countries, and Ukrainian counterparts to generate international investment in Ukraine and work with Ukraine to make the reforms necessary to improve Ukraine’s business climate.”

Secretary of State Antony Blinken emphasized Pritzker’s “extensive private sector experience” and her “deep personal connection to Ukraine” as paramount qualifications for the role. “She will be key to our determination to see to it that Ukraine not only survives but thrives, standing on its own,” he stated.
President Biden expressed a similar sentiment, outlining that Pritzker will collaborate closely with “the Ukrainian government, our allies and partners, international financial institutions, and the private sector” to revitalize Ukraine’s economy amid the imposition of new sanctions on Russia and its operatives.

The President conveyed on X, formerly known as Twitter, “Working in lockstep, she will drive the United States’ efforts to help rebuild the Ukrainian economy, shaping donor priorities, and working to open export markets and businesses shut down by Russia’s brutal attacks and destruction.”
This selection points to a continuation of the intricate political relationships weaving through the Biden administration, reminiscent of the Obama era. Pritzker’s history is marred by her implication in a subprime mortgage meltdown at Superior Bank, resulting in its failure in 2001. This association once barred her from a cabinet role in 2008. However, she was later nominated to the Secretary of Commerce in 2012.
Pritzker’s tenure as Secretary of Commerce was notably marked by the relinquishment of American control over Internet domain names. Her prior involvement with Ukraine, where her lineage can be traced, and her role in announcing billion-dollar loan guarantees raise critical questions about the administration’s transparency and the integrity of the appointment process.
During Pritzker’s Obama-era assignment, then-Vice President Biden had sparked controversy by threatening to withhold loan guarantees unless Ukraine dismissed a prosecutor investigating a company associated with Hunter Biden. So far, the media has shown little or no interest in what Pritzker knew about Biden’s conflict of interest in Ukraine.
