While Democrats and the media are fixated on President Donald Trump’s faux scandal with Ukraine, new bombshell evidence just changed everything.
According to an explosive report from The Hill’s John Solomon, a former Ukrainian prosecutor swore under oath that he was fired for refusing to drop the investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
Solomon reports that he received secret memos detailing the court proceedings.
Hundreds of pages of never-released memos and documents — many from inside the American team helping Burisma to stave off its legal troubles — conflict with Biden’s narrative.
And they raise the troubling prospect that U.S. officials may have painted a false picture in Ukraine that helped ease Burisma’s legal troubles and stop prosecutors’ plans to interview Hunter Biden during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Ukraine’s new president, Volodymyr Zelensky, told Trump in July that he plans to launch his own wide-ranging investigation into what happened with the Bidens and Burisma.
The media has been going ballistic over a phone call Trump had with the Ukrainian president several months ago, where POTUS reportedly asked the foreign leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, over shady business dealings with a Ukrainian gas company.
Trump says the phone call was about rooting out corruption.
A whistleblower filed a complaint regarding the call, but it has been revealed that the leaker did not even hear the phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president.
That’s right: a complaint was filed about a call that the whistleblower never heard, and Democrats are demanding Trump be impeached over a call that they also never heard.
All of this will likely ultimately backfire badly on Biden.
The allegations are that Hunter allegedly profited financially from his father’s time as vice president.
Straight out of the Clintons playbook, Hunter was hired to sit on the board of powerful companies because he allegedly claimed he could use his father’s power as the vice president. This all happened when Biden was serving as the VP.
The details emerged as the Ukrainian government recently reopened an investigation into a company which once paid Hunter Biden roughly $50,000 a month.
That company, Burisma Holdings, was being probed by Ukraine’s top prosecutor.
Joe Biden allegedly pressured and tried to intimidate the Ukrainian government to remove the prosecutor from the case, and his plan actually worked.
Biden, who was still serving as the vice president, went to Kiev in March 2016? and “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the country’s top prosecutor [Yuriy Lutsenko], who had been accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office and among the political elite.”
The Ukrainian Parliament caved and removed Lutsenko as the prosecutor on the case — and Hunter still benefited significantly from his father’s actions and position.
It certainly looks like Biden used his power as VP to pressure Ukraine into removing the prosecutor who was investigating a shady deal involving his son.
