Biden Bragged About the Firing of a Prosecutor Who Was Investigating His Son’s Firm

After leaving office in 2017, Vice President Joe Biden Bragged about strong-arming the government of Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor.

Biden himself described the turn of events at an event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations in January 2018:

I said, “Nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars.” They said, “You have no authority. You’re not the president.” The president said—I said, “Call him.” I said, “I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars.” I said, “You’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours.” I looked at them and said, “I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.” Well, son of a bitch. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.

Biden made the remarks during a meeting of foreign policy specialists. Biden said he, “Threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.” Biden suggested during his talk that Barack Obama was in on the threat.

State Department Assistant Secretary Victoria Nuland worked with U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt in late 2015 to create a plan to force the firing of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin,  according to the impeachment inquiry testimony of George Kent, a senior State Department official. Nuland was also among a network of Obama administration officials involved in the distribution and recirculation of the infamous Steele dossier, the document used by the FBI to secure a maximally intrusive spy warrant to surveil a Trump-campaign associate.

In April 2019, John Solomon revealed what Biden did not tell his audience. Joe Biden had Shokin fired because he was investigating Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

Poroshenko was investigating $3 million in funds that were being transferred out of Ukraine and into accounts in the United States at that time.

In August 2019. Biden told Politico,“I’ve never discussed with my son or my brother, or anyone else anything having to do with their businesses, period.” Biden also told FOX News reporter Peter Doocy that he never discussed Ukraine with his son Hunter — before he threatened the Ukrainians to fire the prosecutor investigating his son. They were both blatant lies. Biden contacted federal agencies (privately contacted both the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice) at least twice to intervene on behalf of his drug-addicted son’s lobbying firm.

In May President Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said in an interview that he plans to travel to Ukraine to push the country’s leadership on several probes that may prove “very, very helpful” to President Trump, as Republicans continue looking to turn the tables on Democrats and prove that they — not the GOP — were the party that improperly conspired with foreign actors.

Rudy Giuliani later joined Sean Hannity to discuss this international scandal involving Joe Biden and his drug addict son, Hunter Biden.

Rudy told Sean that Joe Biden will be investigated no matter what.

Three days later Rep. Adam Schiff told ABC that President Trump should not be allowed to investigate Joe Biden’s criminal dealings in Ukraine.

Joe Biden and his son also secured a billion-dollar China deal just days after former Vice President Joe Biden visited China in 2013.

On September 21st 2019, President Trump destroyed the Biden Crime Family on the real Ukrainian scandal.

After Poroshenko and the Ukrainian parliament ousted Shokin, The New York Times reported “Shokin had been criticized for not prosecuting officials, businessmen and members of Parliament for their roles in corrupt schemes during the government of former President Viktor F. Yanukovych.”

There was at least one notable prosecution in progress, however, at the time Shokin was sacked: a corruption probe into Burisma Holdings, a natural gas company which employed Hunter Biden.

According to The Hill‘s Executive VP John Solomon, Ukrainian officials have a file on Burisma holdings which “shows prosecutors identified Hunter Biden, business partner Devon Archer and their firm, Rosemont Seneca, as potential recipients of money.”

Shokin was also interviewed for the report and said he made “specific plans” for the foiled investigation which “included interrogations and other crime-investigation procedures into all members of the executive board, including Hunter Biden.”

Starting in 2018 US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovich, a Trump-hating Obama appointee) denied Ukrainian officials visas to enter the United States to hand over evidence of Obama administration misconduct to Trump administration officials.

She was removed from her post in Ukraine early in May 2019 when all of the Ukrainian collusion with the DNC came to light.

John Solomon at The Hill reported:

According to interviews with more than a dozen Ukrainian and U.S. officials, Ukraine’s government under recently departed President Petro Poroshenko and, now, Zelensky has been trying since summer 2018 to hand over evidence about the conduct of Americans they believe might be involved in violations of U.S. law during the Obama years.

The Ukrainians say their efforts to get their allegations to U.S. authorities were thwarted first by the U.S. embassy in Kiev, which failed to issue timely visas allowing them to visit America.

In September 2019, Solomon, after obtaining over 400 pages of documents on the scandal, revealing details from Shokin on how it happened and claims he tried to get his job as top prosecutor back after he learned how Joe Biden had pressured Ukraine to remove him for his investigation of Burisma.
