Joe Biden under probe in Ukraine for alleged link to top prosecutorís 2016 ouster: report

Investigators in Ukraine have launched a probe into former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden over allegations that he pressured Ukrainian officials to fire the country’s top prosecutor in 2016, according to a report.

The Ukrainian probe was launched in response to a court order, after the ousted prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, made an appeal for action in the matter, Shokin’s attorney, Oleksandr Teleshetsky, told The Washington Post.

“They need to investigate this. They have no other alternative,” Teleshetsky told the Post. “They are required to do this by the decision of the court. If they don't, then they violate a whole string of procedural norms.”

Ukraine’s State Bureau of Investigations confirmed a probe was underway, the Post reported.

Shokin has long objected to his removal, claiming Biden – who’s now running for president -- pushed for his firing because the prosecutor tried to investigate Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas company where Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was a highly paid board member, reportedly receiving $83,000 per month.

Both Bidens have repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in connection with Ukraine. Hunter Biden pledged last year to avoid business deals with foreign entities if his father becomes president.

In a video from a Council on Foreign Relations event in 2018, Biden is heard bragging about using his influence to get Shokin fired, including threatening to call back a $1 billion loan from the U.S. government to Ukraine if the firing didn’t happen.

Jean-Fraud Kerry not only implicated Biden, but himself and the ENTIRE administration. Top-down, bottom-up, inside out.

Just in case he forgot, the absent-minded Gropin’ Joe already indicted himself...

The big question is: When he’s extradited, will he take down the mighty Odongo along with the rest of the evil coven, or will he conveniently just commit the usual Arkancide and be done with it? Inquiring Americans would like to know.

They are required to investigate. If it were the USA , it would be ignored even if it were required.. unless it was a Republican.

neither Fox nor Gateway Pundit mention this part (original source):

27 Feb: Interfax SBI opens case on Biden’s pressure on Shokin – lawyer
Greek law enforcement agencies, in turn, are investigating Shokin’s mercury poisoning in 2019, Teleshetsky said, adding that Shokin himself links this incident to Biden...
Shokin said in late January 2020, that he had survived mercury poisoning in Greece five months before, after which he had to undergo lengthy medical treatment.

I hate saying it but Biden is unfit mentally to stand trial and should not be extradited.

It’s a pity justice will never be served upon this creature.

I don't think so The Dem base is heavily invested in the Schiiff/impeachment narrative. Any candidate who jumps on this will be seen as agreeing with Trump that the Bidens did something wrong and/or worth investigating. They can't afford to even concede an inch on this without alienating their looney base.

The bigger question is:
Why isn’t our DOJ investigating this?

EXACTLY.

The other Dems are likely to completely ignore this. Plus, none of the others running for Pres need to even worry about QuidProJoe. He's not the threat. Sanders and Bloomberg are.
