Joe Biden has faced charges that he’s been influence-peddling his entire political career.
Now they may have caught up with him and could stick.
And Shokin just lowered the boom on Joe Biden for taking him out.
Joe Biden and son Hunter are embroiled in investigations regarding pay-for-play deals in foreign affairs.
Former friends and associates of Hunter Biden are confirming what was revealed on his “laptop from hell.”
But the most obvious instance of Biden malfeasance occurred out in the open.
Shokin spills the tea
During a panel discussion at the Council on Foreign Relations, then-Vice President Joe Biden bragged about getting Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired while he was investigating energy company Burisma.
It just so happened that at the time, Hunter Biden was on Burisma’s board earning $83,000 per month for a seemingly no-show job.
With the Bidens’ troubles bubbling up to the surface, Shokin spoke out on what happened.
Through a translator, Shokin told Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade, “I have said repeatedly in my previous interviews that [former President Petro] Poroshenko fired me at the insistence of the then-Vice President Biden because I was investigating Burisma…This is how it was…There were no complaints whatsoever and no problems with how I was performing at my job. But because pressure was repeatedly put on Poroshenko, that is what ended up in him firing me.”
Kilmeade asked, “Do you believe that Joe Biden or Hunter Biden got bribes?”
Shokin responded, “I do not want to deal in unproven facts, but my firm personal conviction is that, yes, this was the case…They were being bribed. And 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?”
Shokin says Joe Biden put $1 billion in U.S. taxpayer dollars on taking his figurative scalp
It’s difficult to argue with Shokin’s position.
Hunter Biden got paid $1 million per year from Burisma despite having zero experience in the energy sector and having no knowledge of Ukrainian regulatory policy.
On top of that, according to an FBI report, a confidential human source (CHS) said that Burisma CEO Mykola Zlochevsky was not at all impressed with Hunter Biden, the man he was paying to sit on his board.
The FBI report stated, “CHS told Zlochevsky that any such payments to the Bidens would complicate matters, and Burtsma should hire ‘some normal US oil and gas advisors’ because the Bidens have no experience with that business sector. Zlochevsky made some comment that although Hunter Biden ‘was stupid, and his (Zlochevsky’s) dog was smarter,’ Zlochevsky needed to keep Hunter Biden (on the board) so everything will be okay.”
The Bidens have offered no good explanation for these Ukraine dealings, and the Democrat-controlled media certainly will not press them.
