NOTE: I haven't listed any persons who have no involvement in the Ukraine scandal whatsoever, but who the progenitors and enablers of the scandal mention incessantly in order to make Americans think they've done something wrong or have something to add to the impeachment process.

NOTE2: Within this group of sixty key individuals is the "core of the core," a group of twelve individuals so integral to the scandal—which originates *well* before 2019—that they should be considered its "motive engine." I'll try to create a visualization of this cadre if I can.

NOTE3: A few corrections and additions to this thread (I didn't want to forget this before going to bed):

🇺🇸 Prince
