Skip to comments.Ukraine Conducts Probe Sought By Trump Regarding Hunter Biden’s Former Employer
Posted on 10/05/2019 12:35:39 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
At a news conference in Kyiv on Friday, Ukraines newly appointed top prosecutor announced a sweeping review of past corruption investigations that had been either shut down or split up. Fifteen of those cases, according to an official press release, involve the founder of the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma.
Former Vice President Joe Bidens son Hunter was appointed to Burismas board in 2014, while his father was leading policy on Ukraine during the Obama administration.
The audit of earlier corruption probes follows a promise Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy made to President Trump in a July 25 phone conversation: that a new prosecutor general would look into the closing of an investigation into Burismas practices.
Ukraine might appear to be bowing to pressure from Trump, who lifted his previously unannounced two-month hold on nearly $400 million in security assistance for Ukraine on Sept. 11. Earlier this week, the U.S. State Department gave the green light for Congress to consider selling 150 Javelin anti-tank missiles worth nearly $40 million to Ukraine. Zelenskiy had mentioned his desire to acquire those weapons, which are intended to counter Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine, in his phone call with Trump.

Joe probably regrets bragging about the $1 billion "blackmail" video.
THIS JUST IN: His fund-raising is in the sewer, but Biden has $6 million dollars for campaign ads? Did he borrow it from his son?
Obama’s wondering the same thing (cackle)——he always suspected Hunter was holding out on them in the Ukrainian deal.
Hunter had(s) a very expensive cocaine habit when he supposedly got a paltry $3 million from Burisma -— to be split three ways.
But Obama knew IMF had given Ukraine $5 billion.......which went missing......
and was being investigated by the same prosecutor looking into Hunter. Quelle “coincidence.” Non?
The corruption-seeking prosecutor got fired when Joe Biden stepped in to defend his son soon as the checks cleared......
In other words, President Trump is giving them assurance that they can once again pursue the Biden-associated corruption probe without fear of blackmail.

When @realDonaldTrump questions anyone about corruption, even foreign leaders, he is conducting a 1A Free Press protected activity.
SCOTUS ruled that press freedoms apply to anyone, including someone publishing investigation results on Twitter. So they CANT impeach or even pass any laws to impede such activities.
And besides, wouldnt you all love to see the media meltdown if Trump used this legal theory to defend his inquiries!
I think hed be on sound legal ground here, as the universal application of press freedoms to every citizen is a well established legal precedent, which is why there are so many First Amendment Auditors on YouTube now, daring anyone to try and stop them from filming in public or from any location where they are allowed to be.
Can’t wait to see what Zelenskiy and his men turn up ...
The phone lines are burning up between US Pols calling in every favor from every corner of the earth to PRESSURE the Ukraine to stop the probe.
My parents raised 4 kids.
I am plenty damn sure NONE of us were EVER arrested, or charged with drug charges, etc.
Each of us was self-employed, and one of us had 65 employees at his company.
My parents did this on Dad’s salary of $12,000 a year-—which, in the late 40’s & 50’s was a VERY good salary.
Very nice Travis.
Having it get out, probably.
But Im sure he was bragging to a room full of friends, cronies, and yes-men. He wasnt in any way hesitant about it. He was telling a big ol Joe Biden war story to an appreciative audience and he was telling it with gusto. His continuing mistake is that he really thinks hes that popular outside of the room, too.
Jail house bump!
Investigations are a good thing that way. If you are cleared, da woild is your erster, and if not, an elephant is in your pajamas.
Why, look at what being investigated by Mueller has done for Trump. Now the MSM and the DOP goes nuts every time he makes a phone call. Which gives him power over them, but they’re too stupid to cop that. Like Groucho with Margaret Dumont, while Rudy is Chico, and Durham is Harpo.
