Remember when Joe Biden said he knew nothing about his son’s work with Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings?
Well, an explosive report based on newly released Obama administration emails shows that Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was looking into Burisma’s alleged corruption shortly after a Burisma representative lobbied the Obama State Department for help in resolving the probe.
Not a Conspiracy Theory
The new report just hit the internet and this is far from some right-wing conspiracy activist just throwing out random theories to discredit Joe Biden.
The report was first made public by John Solomon, who is an award-winning investigative journalist. Solomon has just gained access to communications between Burisma representatives and the Undersecretary of State as well as internal emails within the State Department thanks to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.
This report, at the very least, proves that the Obama administration was aware of Hunter Biden’s connection with Burisma prior to Joe Biden’s threat to withhold a $1 billion aid payment to Ukraine.
Progression of Events
The whole process took place from early February 2016 to Biden’s March Ukraine trip. In early February, a consultant for Burisma contacted the State Department in hopes of resolving the corruption probe. As Solomon reported, the emails show that “Hunter Biden’s name, in fact, was specifically invoked by the Burisma representative as a reason the State Department should help.”
“Per our conversation, Karen Tramontano of Blue Star Strategies requested a meeting to discuss with U/S Novelli USG remarks alleging Burisma (Ukrainian energy company) of corruption,” a February 2016 State Department email reads. “She noted that two high profile U.S. citizens are affiliated with the company (including Hunter Biden as a board member). Tramontano would like to talk with U/S Novelli about getting a better understanding of how the U.S. came to the determination that the company is corrupt. According to Tramontano there is no evidence of corruption, has been no hearing or process, and evidence to the contrary has not been considered.”
It’s unclear whether or not that meeting actually took place. Joe Biden then traveled to Ukraine at the end of March, which is when he threatened to withhold the aid money unless the prosecutor was fired.
That prosecutor was reportedly investigating Burisma for alleged corruption. Biden told Ukraine’s president he had six hours to make the move or Biden was going to leave with the check in hand.
There is also an email chain involving John Kerry, who was the Secretary of State at the time, making him aware of Biden’s involvement with Burisma.
So, are we really to believe the State Department never apprised Joe Biden of this situation, knowing full well his son was on the board of Burisma? Remember, Biden was Obama’s point man when it came to Ukraine.
The truth is finally coming out and now it is only a matter of time before all of America knows just how corrupt Joe Biden really is.
