    Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill) says she will block Senate confirmation of 1,123 senior U.S. Armed Forces promotions unless Defense Secretary Mark Esper agrees to promote Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. Vindman served on the White House National Security Council and gained fame for testifying in the House impeachment hearings that, in his opinion, Trump was too aggressively pushing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate corruption at the Burisma corporation. Burisma also paid Hunter Biden—son of then Vice-President Joe Biden--$80,000 per month for a "no show" job on the company's Board of Directors. Trump fired Vindman from his White House job...

    Ukraine prosecutors didn't want the political spectacle that became impeachment and simply sought to turn over evidence about Joe Biden and election interference to U.S. prosecutors, memos show.Could the impeachment scandal have been prevented if the now-fired U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman had followed up on Ukrainian allegations about Joe Biden and his family in 2018? That’s the tantalizing question raised by emails from fall 2018 between an American lawyer and the chief federal prosecutor in Manhattan that were obtained by Just the News. The memos show that well before Ukrainian prosecutors reached out to Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer, in...

    The attempted bribe was described as the “biggest reported bribe attempt in Ukrainian history.” Three individuals with ties to Mykola Zlochevsky, the founder of Burisma Holdings, are being accused of attempting to bribe anti-corruption officials in Ukraine to end the investigation into the company and its founder for embezzlement. Zlochevsky denies involvement in the scheme. **SNIP** How can that be the most substantial bribe in Ukraine history? Joe Biden gave them a billion dollars for firing the prosecutor that was investigating Burisma. That’s what Joe said. **SNIP** Whether or not the actions of Joe Biden and his son Hunter crossed...

    Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) considers himself "a straight shooter" who "calls them as I see them." That's why he says he's leading an investigation into former Obama officials for allegedly unfairly targeting President Trump and his associates during the presidential transition period in 2016, as well as a probe into Hunter Biden's time on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma, which faces corruption allegations. -------------- Romney, who sits on the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs which Johnson leads, did vote for his fellow senator's subpoena authorizations targeting former Obama officials. But he declined to say if...

    Ukrainian officials on Saturday said they were offered $5 million in bribes to end a probe into energy company Burisma's founder, but said there was no connection to former board member Hunter Biden whose father is running for the U.S. presidency. The Ukrainian company was thrust into the global spotlight last year in the impeachment inquiry into whether U.S. President Donald Trump improperly pressured Kiev into opening a case against his rival for the November election race. Trump wants an investigation into the Democrats' 2020 candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his son. Artem Sytnyk, head of Ukraine's national...

    A Senate committee voted along party lines Wednesday to issue a subpoena as part of the Republican-led investigation into the Ukrainian energy firm that hired former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden. The subpoena is one of several steps Senate Republicans are taking to ramp up probes related to the Obama administration and Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee who will likely challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted 8-6 to authorize the subpoena Chairman Ron Johnson requested for Blue Star Strategies, a US public affairs firm that worked...

    The highly vaunted Trump-hating U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, has been caught lying through her teeth, under oath, to Congress. John Solomon, who conducted a Freedom of Information Act query, has the goods: During her testimony, the ambassador told lawmakers her knowledge about Burisma and its relationship with Hunter Biden was limited mostly to a briefing before she went to Kiev as the top U.S. diplomat and what she read in news reports. Newly released memos state Yovanovitch had a direct meeting with a Burisma representative in December 2016, and received a detailed letter from the company's lawyer. It's...

    State Department Inspector General and Deep State hack Steve Linick was fired on Friday night. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo fired the anti-Trump Obama holdover. Linick served as State Department IG since 2013 Linick played a role in the faux impeachment of President Trump over Ukraine. Linick requested an urgent meeting with Congressional Democrat staffers. During the meeting Linick handed over documents related to the Trump administration and Ukraine. The entire impeachment was a scam to divert attention away from the Biden Crime Family and Hunter Biden’s pay-for-play with Burisma Holdings. Linick was an anti-Trump hack who should have been...

    State Department emails obtained by the conservative group Citizens United this week indicate that the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine was involved in discussions about the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings and even in a meeting with a company representative, despite testifying to Congress during the impeachment inquiry that she knew little about the firm. Burisma Holdings was at the center of impeachment proceedings against President Trump, after he pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a phone call to look into the Biden family’s dealings in Ukraine. Former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, held a lucrative position on...

    During President Trump's impeachment, former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch testified before Congress [under oath] that she knew little beyond an initial briefing and "press reports" about Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian natural gas firm that had hired Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter and was dogged by a corruption investigation. "It just wasn't a big deal," she testified under oath on October 11, 2019. But newly unearthed State Department memos obtained under the Freedom of Information Act [show otherwise].

    Two Republican senators sent a request Thursday to the State Department asking to meet with key State Department employees for an investigation into Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy firm that once employed Hunter Biden on its board. The letter from Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, and Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Finance Committee, shows they want to seek interviews and documents specific to the dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. Shokin, who was dismissed in March 2016 after about a year in office by then-President Petro Poroshenko, claims he was ousted...

    The mother of Hunter Biden's child is seeking to have him held in contempt of court for failing to provide mandatory documentation. Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, filed a paternity suit against Biden alleging he is the father of her infant child last May, and a subsequent DNA test proved “with scientific certainty” that he is the father. In court on Friday, Roberts's lawyers filed a renewed motion for contempt and for order to show cause because Biden has not supplied her with a copy of his 2017 and 2018 personal tax returns, along with a long list of other items
