The Washington Examiner is reporting that the Ukrainian prosecutor who was fired at Joe Biden’s request was told to back off his probe of Hunter Biden’s company.
Speaking to President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, in January of this year, Viktor Shokin said “he was told to end his investigation” into Burisma Holdings “out of fear of the United States,” the Examiner reports.
The truth comes out
Back in 2015, when Joe Biden was serving as Barack Obama’s vice president, Hunter Biden was working with Burisma, a natural gas company, when it came under investigation by Ukraine’s top prosecutor.
“Mr. Shokin attempted to continue the investigations,” the Examiner reported, quoting notes from Giuliani’s interview with Shokin, “but on or around June or July of 2015, the U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt told him that the investigation has to be handled with white gloves, which according to Mr. Shokin, that implied do nothing.”
It wasn’t long after that Shokin was fired — and Joe Biden himself said in January 2018 that he was the one who set that up.
“I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars,’” the former vice president recalled telling Ukrainian officials. “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.’”
What happened next?
Joe Biden himself put it best: “Well, son of a b***h. He got fired.”
Dems pick their battles
Of course, Democrats have ignored this development and instead, pointed their concerns to the White House, where they say the real corruption lies. (After all, what better way to distract the public from a corruption scandal than to frame your opposition with a corruption scandal?)
But the Dems would do well to clean up their own backyard before going after President Donald Trump.
It’s clear Joe Biden was involved in some shady dealings. Where is the investigation on that? (Answer: Nowhere to be found.)
When will Americans know what really happened?
