Editors’ Note: We have noticed that a number of “establishment” news sites are starting to cover the Biden Family bribery scandal. Perhaps we are finally at an inflection point where this story can no longer be ignored. Democrats will counter that while Hunter is implicated, there is no proof that the President was receiving funds. That is not only not true, but they miss the point that bribery statutes include funds received by the criminal’s family.
Additionally, it is now surfacing that the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy was not to have Viktor Shokin removed from his prosecutorial position as he was dealing with the corruption occurring in Ukraine (including Burisma), the opposite of the action by then-Vice President Joe Biden to have him fired under threat of withholding one billion dollars of aide.
The Ukrainian prosecutor fired following pressure from then-Vice President Joe Biden alleged his firing was due to “corruption” in the Biden family.
Biden boasted about forcing the Ukrainian government to fire Viktor Shokin, a prosecutor who was investigating Burisma, an energy company, during an event held by the Council on Foreign Relations. Biden’s son, Hunter, was appointed to the board of Burisma in 2014. (RELATED: Former Intelligence Director Slams New Biden Docs As The ‘Smoking Gun And The Bloody Knife’)
“I do not want to deal in unproven facts, but my firm personal conviction is that, yes, this was the case,” Shokin said in a clip from an interview that will air on Fox News Saturday. “They were being bribed. The fact that Joe Biden gave away $1 billion in U.S. money in exchange for my dismissal, my firing, isn’t that alone a case of corruption?”
Republican Sen. Charles Grassley released the FD-1023 form containing allegations that the Bidens received millions of dollars in bribes obtained from a whistleblower on July 20. The document, which recounted what a “confidential human source” (CHS) told the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in June 2020, says that a top Burisma executive felt he was “pushed to pay” the Bidens.
Shokin had been investigating Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of Burisma during his Hunter’s tenure at the company. Biden later bragged about forcing Shokin’s ouster.
“I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden said. “Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”
Devon Archer, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, told investigators that then-Vice President Joe Biden spoke with his son, Hunter, “more than 20 times about their business deals,” according to Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.
The New York Post reported on the contents of a laptop abandoned by Hunter Biden at a Delaware computer repair shop on Oct. 14, 2020 that included emails related to business dealings by the Biden family.
