Posted on 11/07/2019 5:10:03 PM PST by bitt
A State Department official who served in the U.S. embassy in Kiev told Congress that the Obama administration tried in 2016 to partner with the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden but the project was blocked over corruption concerns.
George Kent, the former charge daffair at the Kiev embassy, said in testimony released Thursday that the State Departments main foreign aid agency, known as USAID, planned to co-sponsor a clean energy project with Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden as a board member.
At the time of the proposed project, Burisma was under investigation in Ukraine for alleged corruption. Those cases were settled in late 2016 and early 2017. Burisma contested allegations of corruption but paid a penalty for tax issues.
Kent testified he personally intervened in mid-2016 to stop USAIDs joint project with Burisma because American officials believed the corruption allegations against the gas firm raised concern.
There apparently was an effort for Burisma to help cosponsor, I guess, a contest that USAID was sponsoring related to clean energy. And when I heard about it I asked USAID to stop that sponsorship, Kent told lawmakers.
When asked why he intervened, he answered: Because Burisma had a poor reputation in the business, and I didnt think it was appropriate for the U.S. Government to be co-sponsoring something with a company that had a bad reputation.

USAID has been used as a front for the CIA in the past...and other times has provided the “cover”

But nobody thought there was anything wrong with the Vice Presidents son working for that corrupt organization.
Mark Levin has been all over this tonight.
If this doesn’t stop the crap RAT party, what will?
But wait, NO SMIDGEN OF CORRUPTION TEAM OBAMA SAID..not a wee smidgen..but the commie media will never report this since they all voted for their beloved Obama
Note: Opinions are not evidence and that's what every witness has presented.
'The importance of a December 19, 1971 article in the Boston Globe by Dan Pinck, a historian and former OSS officer, titled "Is Everyone in the CIA?" is germane. The article alleged that identifying US Agency for International Development (USAID) officers as CIA agents was a "reasonably accurate accounting of certain leading operatives and associates of the CIA."'
(Quoted from Warren Madsen's book, The Manufacturing of a President)
So they did not partner with them. So who blocked it?
Civil war. And since the likelihood of that happening, even if Trump were impeached and convicted, is pretty much zilch, nothing will happen to them. They know they have decades of cover.
Curious about the contributions of the two partners??
USAID puts up 100% of the money for ??? What % ownership??
Plus. How much kicked back to hussein goon squad (aka: whistle blowers)
Obama’s mother worked for USAID. There is a whole lot of sketchy goings on with her and that Indonesian husband....
and even during the East Timor genocides times...
We are in WAR for “hearts & minds”.
That will change the nation... turn it around.
That’s an old way for the corrupt politicians to earn money. Ruin the foreign country then start ‘aiding’ it then establish schemes to pocket the aid for yourself.
It would be fun if they got a witness to answer every single question with orange man bad
Here's the simplified version:
The Obama Administration helped remove the leader of Ukraine and replaced him with someone essentially handpicked.
Then two major things were created. 1) an oil and gas company, and 2) a new bank. Joe Biden's son Hunter, who doesn't speak Ukrainian and has no business experience in oil or gas, was placed on the board of directors of that company, which was also made to be in charge of energy in Ukraine.
During this time, Hunter's dad, Joe Biden was the US Vice President and oversaw diplomatic relations between the US and Ukraine.
Moving forward, that newly created bank "just happened" to be funded by $1.8 billion of US taxpayer money. (My money, your money.) The $1.8 million goes into the bank, then the bank mysteriously "loses" EVERY SINGLE PENNY of it! $1.8 billion *poof*!
(Fast forward again.) Hunter Biden magically ends up with $1.5 billion. That's a lot for someone making "just" $50,000 a month working for a Ukrainian company!
See a connection here?
I propose the word “Bombshell” be retired for the duration.
This will be reported in the main stream media as a “debunked fox news conspiracy”.
Soon, Chuck Todd will be getting commentary from John Brennan, in a Federal Penn, and calling his conviction and prison uniform a debunked conspiracy.
It is amazing to me that Dems are so rabid that they can’t see that they should want to bury all of this.
Funny how the amount Hunter got was almost the same as the amount lost by the phony bank.
