Burisma executive 'paid Joe and Hunter Biden $5million EACH to end corruption investigations': Republicans reveal contents of FBI document showing first family's alleged criminal scheme
Daily Mail ^ | 6/09/23 | Neirin Gray Desai, Rob Crilly, Nikki Schwab

House Republicans alleged on Thursday that President Joe Biden and his son Hunter each received a $5 million payment from the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma to shake off a corruption probe.

Reps. Anna Paulina Luna and Marjorie Taylor Greene were among those given access to an FBI document from June 2020 that detailed testimony given to agents from an informant who had spoken with Burisma owner Mykola Zlochevsky.

That informant claimed that Zlochevsky said he had doled out $5 million to each Biden to call off an ongoing investigation by the Ukrainian prosecutor general at the time, Viktor Shokin.

Ukrainian prosecutors first launched an investigation into Bursima - the company on which Hunter had a board position for five years - over allegations of money laundering, tax evasion, and corruption in 2012.

Greene has now alleged that the $5 million payments were a 'bribe' paid by Zlochevsky to have Shokin fired - thereby killing the investigation.

Shokin was eventually fired in April 2016, a month after Biden, then-vice president, threatened to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine if he was not replaced as prosecutor general.

Biden has since claimed that he was pushing for Shokin to be fired because he was failing to properly curtail corruption in Ukraine.

'There's no doubt in my mind that Joe Biden is guilty of bribery,' Luna told Fox News correspondent Chad Pergram.

'There was two separate transactions, one that went to Joe Biden for $5million, one that went to Hunter Biden for $5 million.'

Zlochevsky is a multimillionaire Ukrainian oil and gas oligarch who founded Burisma in 2002. He also served in various positions in the Ukrainian government from 2010 until February 2014.

Burisma brought Hunter onto its board in 2014 as it was looking to expand overseas, even though...

Case is dying to be a RICO investigation. They need to haul one of the grandkids in front of the committee to testify. Nothing will sting the old Fartwhistle like seeing a grand try to stammer through a hearing trying to explain an off shore acct that has millions in it , that the mid probably has zero knowledge of.

Beginning now to understand Brandon’s “where’s the money” comment.

If $5 million is being said to have gone to him, and another $5 million to his son, he’s saying: Prove it or shut up.

We already know all of this. You already know about the Chicom bribes. Nothing will happen other than our noses bleeding from continually being rubbed in it.

Well Some-Bitch, and less than an hour later, they were pressured by a braggart to fire their Investigator or lose Billions of dollars from the USG.

There really needs to be an idealogical purge within the USG.

Biden has openly told everyone in the world in his own words.

Biden should be arrested and impeached while sitting Episten’s old jail cell to make sure nobody “with legal standing” kills him on principle. This man should not represent the office of the presidency because he tranishes the thought.

Come on out Surrender Monkey’s! Start Screeching “nothing will happen, nothing will ever happen,” enough and you might even come to believe it yourselves.

Comer is not playing - get used to it!

Nothing will happen.

It’s time to be honest. This has been known since Obama was President. It was documented before Trump was impeached for asking about it. Biden bragged about it on national TV. The DOJ, FBI, NSA and all the rest of government hid it from Trump’s defense Team at the impeachment.

They just indicted, in less than a year, Trump for his documents for his Presidential library. Brought to you by an Administration that won with more votes than voters in Pennsylvania with a documented tractor trailer of illegal votes from New York that the then Attorney General refused to investigate.

You don’t live in a Republic anymore. They will take away your guns, then your property and retirements to pay themselves even more. Everything you believed and were taught about Constitution and Republicans is dead. Prosecutor misconduct, government lies and lawfare, outright theft of the tax payer money with an insatiable appetite, bogus elections, burdensome government, and soon removal of the bill of rights and self government are all right around the corner.

Anybody have an alternative plan on where to go? I am listening.

Did they claim and pay taxes on this income to the IRS? They got Al Capone for tax evasion. Are the Bidens too big to fail?

Surrender Monkey, or reality.
You decide. They have known about the Biden’s for a decade.
Why would tomorrow be different than the 3650 prior tomorrows for the DOJ?

Prove it or shut up.

If we had an actual news media, they would examine property records, bank records, and other sources and get the answer as to how a career elected official became a millionaire!

BIDEN: "...You'd notice, I have never once – not one single time-suggested to the Justice Department what they should do or not do relative to bringing a charge or not bringing a charge. I'm honest..."

Brandon and the other members of his family must be the poster children for a kind of towering, insufferable form of egotism found in no other beer at any price.

Actually, I don’t think he is saying “Prove it or shut up.”

I think he is saying “You won’t be able to prove it. Go ahead and try.”
