Christina Pushaw & Foreign Influence in American Politics

Unless you are a political insider, chances are that you have not heard of Christina Pushaw. That’s okay. After reading this article, then you should have a better idea of who Christina Pushaw is.

In the past year, Christina Pushaw has worked as both Governor Ron DeSantis’s press secretary and the DeSantis re-election campaign’s rapid response director. In simple terms, Pushaw has become DeSantis’s “bodywoman” against the opposition media’s attacks of Ron DeSantis. In fact, one writer called Pushaw “the Rodman of Florida politics”. Pushaw’s confrontational tweets confirms this characterization.

Besides her work with DeSantis, Pushaw occasionally gives some speeches and writes some articles—such as on Human Events and the National Interest. Back in September, Pushaw gave a speech at the National Conservative 3 conference in Miami.

However, there’s more to Pushaw’s story than meets the eye. Before her work with the DeSantis camp, Pushaw spent multiple years working in Eastern European politics. From my experience, few people know about Christina Pushaw’s concerning foreign ties.

For starters, Pushaw retroactively registered as a foreign agent for her work with former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. Pushaw received $25,000 between 2018 and 2020 for her work with Saakashvili.

For context, Saakashvili became President of Georgia in 2004 after leading protests in 2003 (i.e. the Rose Revolution) to force Georgia’s then-President to resign. After leaving the Georgian Presidency in 2013, Georgian prosecutors charged Saakashvili for corruption and abuse of his presidential power against political opposition. He also left Georgia, relinquished his Georgian citizenship, and became a Governor of the Odessa region in the Ukraine.

After stirring up political unrest in the Ukraine in 2017, Saakashvili was stripped of his Ukrainian citizenship and had it restored in 2019 by current Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Here is a photo of Pushaw with Saakashvili:

Pushaw’s international ties do not stop there. Pushaw also worked for a Georgian NGO called “The New Leaders Initiative”, and she openly promotes the corrupt Ukrainian regime and its current President Zelensky. As a client state of the Globalist American Empire, the Ukraine has received tens of billions of American taxpayer dollars.

She even posted a picture of herself with Zelensky during his 2019 election victory.

In addition to her foreign ties, Christina Pushaw also claimed that she became Governor DeSantis’s press secretary in 2021 after sending an email to DeSantis’s office. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Pushaw started working for DeSantis just two months later. This story seems fairly dubious, but it should raise a potential red flag considering Pushaw’s questionable background.

Overall, we should wonder why someone with so many sketchy foreign ties like Christina Pushaw was allowed to work as a high-ranking official in the Florida Governor’s administration.

The American people deserve political leaders and government officials who are loyal to the interests of the American people. Christina Pushaw is just one example of the many political figures—on both sides of the political aisle—with concerning ties to foreign governments/entities. Dual loyalty to foreign governments is completely unbecoming for anyone holding public office.
