Biden Scandal Gets Worse as More Money Involved
Democrats have worked hard to change their own Biden scandal to a Trump scandal, and it seems to have worked for those who rarely read anything past CNN or other left-wing media. But there is information out there that will doom their impeachment and sink former Vice President Joe Biden into the deep state quicksand.
Democrats have done their level best to pressure the Ukraine to stay away from Hunter Biden and the Burisma mess. But everything, and everyone are connected to it, from Joe Biden to Nancy Pelosi.
John Solomon at The Hill reported the backdrop:
Valeriy Chaly, the Ukrainian ambassador to the United States at the time, confirmed to me in a statement issued by his office that, in March 2016, a contractor for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) pressed his embassy to try to find any Russian dirt on Trump and Manafort that might reside in Ukraine’s intelligence files.
The DNC contractor also asked Chaly’s team to try to persuade Ukraine’s president at the time, Petro Poroshenko, to make a statement disparaging Manafort when the Ukrainian leader visited the United States during the 2016 election.
Chaly said his embassy rebuffed both requests because it recognized they were improper efforts to get a foreign government to try to influence the election against Trump and for Hillary Clinton.
The political pressure continued. Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in crucial U.S. aid to Kiev if Poroshenko did not fire the country’s chief prosecutor. Ukraine would have been bankrupted without the aid, so Poroshenko obliged on March 29, 2016, and fired Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
At the time, Biden was aware that Shokin’s office was investigating Burisma, the firm employing Hunter Biden, after a December 2015 New York Times article
Now we learn from documents released by the Ukraine that they had begun an investigation into Biden’s corruption this year BEFORE the infamous Trump phone call with the Ukraine President in July. That makes Trump’s request to Zelensky irrelevant since they had already begun another investigation into Burisma and Hunter Biden. It’s a “significant shift of the facts” according to John Solomon, a Fox News Contributor.
The documents also suggest that Joe Biden himself was given $900,000 for lobbying efforts on behalf of Burisma. Burisma, remember, is an energy company that the “Green New Deal” advocates hate because it’s fossil fuel based.
The Gateway Pundit reported,
Former Vice President Joe Biden was personally paid $900,000 for lobbying activities from Burisma Holdings, according to Ukrainian MP Andriy Derkach.
Derkach publicized the documents at a press conference at the Interfax-Ukraine agency Wednesday as he said the records, “describe the mechanism of getting money by Biden Sr.”
“This was the transfer of Burisma Group’s funds for lobbying activities, as investigators believe, personally to Joe Biden through a lobbying company. Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to the U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which according to open sources, in particular, the New York Times, is affiliated with Biden. The payment reference was payment for consultative services,” Derkach said.
So let’s also mention that there have been improper attempts to “track” journalists like John Solomon, who has gone above and beyond in his quest to get to the bottom of the corruption. That move was performed by the fired US Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovich, who hates Donald Trump.
Two of Rudy Guiliani’s team members were arrested Wednesday night at Dulles airport (CBS)…team members Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, who were looking into the Ukraine corruption were charged with contributing to campaigns in the name of another against US law. Convenient.
