Just a few months after Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas company landed a deal with an Obama administration renewable energy program that had been championed by one of his father's key vice presidential advisers, newly released State Department memos show.
The Memorandum of Understanding between Burisma and USAID's Municipal Energy Reform Project in Ukraine (MERP) was signed in October 2014, according to a copy of the agreement obtained by Just the News under the Freedom of Information Act.
At that time, Burisma was under very public investigations by both the British government and the Ukrainian prosecutor general's office and considered by the State Department to suffer from corruption issues.

For a lot of Democrat voters, the fact that Biden can scam the system is seen as a good thing.
Trump has soooooo much ammunition.
Some are MOABS.
Biden will claim all the upcoming Barr indictments are just politics.
It. doesn’t. matter.
Ever since ol’ Joe bought his sons de bunk beds, they can say that all their slip ups, mistakes, and possible transgressions have been de-bunked.
Flimsey Grahamnesty has already been warned off looking into any of this.
So for anyone who was wondering how Obama, Who had no money, has never worked in a Private Industry job that paid big money, and owns no businesses or other property to make money, can afford a 15 million-dollar mansion on Martha’s Vineyard. Isn’t it amazing that the media finds no interest in this.
Unbelievable how crooked and corrupt Obama is.

As if Linda would ever do anything to a fellow Swamp Rat.
Linda would be just fine having Hillary or Joe as president. Then the good ol’ boys network could get back to business as usual.
Hunter will vapor lock on a fentanyl/cocaine/heroin/alcohol/vicodin/
valium cocktail one of these days. He’s scum.
A senior State Department official, speaking only on condition of anonymity, said officials do not have much current documentation to show how Burisma landed the 2014 deal with USAID, the department's foreign aid arm, but they believe it wasn't fully vetted by the department. Instead, the official said, it appeared the MOU was approved by USAID's contractor managing the program.
who is the USAID's contractor that has discretion to sign off on multi-million dollar deals with no vetting??
how much did this contractor cut out of the deal??
Brother in law cut
The $17 million program ended in March 2018. The contract history indicates that the program was administered by what was then the Research Triangle Institute, now RTI International. The specific agreement between Burisma and MERP dates to October 2014 and was set to expire a year later.
The agreement was "implemented by" International Resources Group, a contractor that facilitates government programs across the world, the MOU states. That group was subsequently acquired by RTI International in 2017. Neither RTI nor the contractor who signed the MOU returned calls seeking comment about the Burisma deal.
any bets on soros showing up somewhere in this crooked deal?
You got any evidence that they ever quit business as usual?
Not much. Linda has to go on Hannity all the time to talk tough about having hearings. Not much else.
WELL THIS IS INTERESTING............the head of the USAID in 2014 was Rajiv Shah...Jill Biden and him and 1 other person traveled to Africa together that year. Hunter Biden’s company got boat load of money (from hat I have been reading on the internet) that yer......I m sure it is all a coincidence right LOL “”Dr. Jill Biden, USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah, and U.S. Ambassador Catherine Russell to Travel to Africa”” https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-press-office/2014/06/24/dr-jill-biden-usaid-administrator-rajiv-shah-and-us-ambassador-catherine
This is interesting blueyon.
Keeping it all in the family

Also, iirc there was a big chunk of USAID that went disappearing in Ukraine.
