Impeachment hearing outs details of Biden’s corruption
“The lack of judgment in this matter was a major catalyst for Mr. Heinz ending his business relationship with Mr. Archer and Mr. Biden,” said a spokesman for Heinz at the time. Bondi produced bank records that showed Burisma paid Hunter Biden and Archer $3.1 million between April 2014 and Oct. 2015. Biden and Archer were paid substantially more than other board members. Unlike Biden and Archer, the other board members had substantial experience and credentials for the work.

The Bidens are as corrupt as sin.  Guilty to their core.  The corruption there from 2014 to 2019 is stunning and illegal.  Trump was right to seek an investigation 


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Lost in Monday’s fuss about John Bolton’s forthcoming book was the bombshell dropped on former Vice President Joe Biden and the premise of President Donald Trump’s impeachment.

Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi documented how Joe Biden in early 2014 began leading the Obama administration’s foreign policy with Ukraine. The stated goal was to root out corruption.

Among the more corrupt entities in Ukraine was the gas company Burisma, owned by oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky, the minister of natural resources under then-President Viktor Yanukovych.

In March of 2014, the UK’s Serious Fraud Office opened an investigation into money laundering involving Zlochevsky and Burisma. Ten days later British authorities seized $23 million in a British bank account linked to Zlochevsky. One month later in April, Devon Archer met with Biden. Archer is a business partner of Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. Two days after the meeting, Hunter Biden joined Archer on the board of Burisma.

As all of this played out, media began questioning Hunter Biden’s appointment to Burisma’s board. Bondi highlighted a headline that said “The appointment of Joe Biden’s son to the board of Ukranian gas firm Burisma has raised eyebrows the world over.”

Chris Heinz, the step-son of then-Secretary of State John Kerry, was a business partner of Hunter Biden and Archer. He was so worried about Hunter Biden’s work on the board that he severed ties with Archer and Biden. He then sent an email to ranking State Department officials to distance himself from the obvious conflict of interest.

“The lack of judgment in this matter was a major catalyst for Mr. Heinz ending his business relationship with Mr. Archer and Mr. Biden,” said a spokesman for Heinz at the time.

Bondi produced bank records that showed Burisma paid Hunter Biden and Archer $3.1 million between April 2014 and Oct. 2015. Biden and Archer were paid substantially more than other board members. Unlike Biden and Archer, the other board members had substantial experience and credentials for the work.

ABC News began to question the arrangement and others, reporting that Hunter Biden had accompanied his father on a trip to China in 2013. Less than two weeks later, Hunter Biden had a new investment firm in China involving a bank controlled by the Chinese government.

As Hunter Biden served on the board of Burisma, Ukraine’s general prosecutor’s office asked the UK to unfreeze Zlochevsky’s $23 million.

“Someone in the general prosecutor’s office of Ukraine shut the case, issued a letter, and that money went puff,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent, in a House Intelligence Committee hearing Bondi referenced Monday.

“They were paid a bribe to make the case go away?” asked attorney Steve Castor on a video of the hearing.

“That is our assumption, yes,” Kent said.

That event led to the appointment of Victor Shokin as Ukraine’s prosecutor general. Shokin quickly issued another order freezing some of Zlochevsky financial assets, as Hunter Biden continued serving on Zlochevsky’s board.

Shortly after Shokin froze the money, so he could investigate suspected corruption involving Burisma, Joe Biden — in his role as vice president — offered Ukraine $1 billion in loan guarantees. There was just one catch. The money was contingent on Ukraine firing Shokin.

Years later, during a television interview, Biden bragged about issuing a quid pro quo involving the money.

“I said ‘naw, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars.’ They said ‘you have no authority, you’re not the president, the president said…’ I said ‘call him.’ I said ‘I’m telling you you’re not getting a billion dollars. I said you’re not getting a billion, I’m going to be leaving here in I think it was, what, six hours, if the prosecutor’s not fired you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch he got fired.”

Bondi spelled it out with evidence. Joe Biden paid the Ukrainian government $1 billion to fire the prosecutor investigating the bank that was paying his son.

The Washington Post questioned the firing on July 22, 2019, writing “had he remained in his post he would have questioned Hunter Biden.”

Three days after the Post published the article, President Donald Trump spoke with President Volodymyr Zelensky. Changing the subject briefly, Trump referenced what he was seeing in the media: “There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son. That Biden stopped the prosecution, and a lot of people want to find out about that. So whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it. It looks horrible to me.”

Given the details Bondi documented Monday, Trump had a duty to ask about the suspected corruption. Rooting out corruption is and always has been a condition of giving American taxpayer dollars to foreign countries.

We aren’t hearing much about it in the news, But Bondi nuked the case for impeachment with a preponderance of evidence against the Bidens.

All you will get from the left is there is nothing to see here. The Bidens are clean. Why aren't they being investigated?

So who is going to investigate them?  Right now I wouldn't trust our lack of intelligence agencies to be unbiased about any political investigation. They have proven repeatedly they can't be trusted.

There wouldn’t be political combat here if one side wasn’t orchestrating a coup against the 2016 election while trying to dictate that our choice for President can’t be on the 2020 ballot as well.  Biden is a very corrupt man who used his offices during his career to enrich his whole family and now democrats are trying to take out Trump to try to cover for his crimes.

4.1  igknorantzrulz  replied to  Jordan @4    3 weeks ago

Cause that is what someone who

'really'

wanted the Bidens investigated, would of done.

They would not of pressured a new non pol who just got elected to president in a country at war with Russia, to announce they are investigating his potential political opponent, even though there was NO evidence of this, all while withholding $390 million dollars

 
 
 
Jordan
4.1.1  Jordan  replied to  igknorantzrulz @4.1    3 weeks ago

Exactly. Its not a real investigation he was looking for, it was the announcement of one for the purpose of smearing a political opponent. Real investigations require probable cause, an indication that some law was broken. There is zero evidence the Bidens violated any laws.

I am pretty sure Barr was mentioned as "in the loop" by Sonland too. Therefore, he either did not know about these laws or Barr did not care about breaking them!

Bondi produced bank records that showed Burisma paid Hunter Biden and Archer $3.1 million between April 2014 and Oct. 2015. Biden and Archer were paid substantially more than other board members. Unlike Biden and Archer, the other board members had substantial experience and credentials for the work.

All bank records do is trace money exchanged between companies like Burisma and Rosemont Seneca.  Unlike other Burisma Board members,  Archer & Biden were also partners in Rosemont Seneca and other investment firms and a hedge fund. The monies going to them could have been for salaries plus services and/or investments with monthly payments ranging from a low of $16K to a high month of $166K.  Only Alan Apter knows for sure.

All Pam Bondi has is speculation.

If the Biden's WERE called to testify:

1) They could simply ignore the subpoenas like all the people the house called to testify and didn't. 

2) I am wondering what questions they would ask them to defend trump? 

3) Even if they WERE guilty, (and we already know they aren't), how does that justify trump extorting the Ukraine to his own personal gain? 

4) Ivanka and Don Jr. have raked in almost 200 million in 3 years, all based on their own daddy's name. If the Biden's are guilty, then those two are as well. 

5) Rudy has been over there in the Ukraine for over a year, he says he has TONS of evidence against the Bidens but has never released any of it. Day nine of the impeachment trial....what the fuck is he waiting for? He doesn't have shit and everyone knows it.

6) Rudy is now under investigation in the Ukraine for his teams surveillance of Marie Yonovich. Gotta love that.

I believe the Senate leader would be smart enough to take it to court if that happened.

Who knows what a court would decide?

I am wondering what questions they would ask them to defend trump? 

I'm thinking you'll never know.

Even if they WERE guilty, (and we already know they aren't), how does that justify trump extorting the Ukraine to his own personal gain? 

Just because you use the word extortion doesn't mean it is correct. That would be settled in a court of law or, in this case, the court of the Senate.

 Ivanka and Don Jr. have raked in almost 200 million in 3 years, all based on their own daddy's name. If the Biden's are guilty, then those two are as well. 

Now you are comparing a fruitcake to an apple. The Trumps were making money off their name long before Daddy got into politics. And had companies they ran or were heavily involved in. None of them have a history of drug abuse that I know of. Biden's daddy is a lifelong politician. He has a history most would consider not-so-great. I am sure a foreign company needed someone like Hunter Biden--someone with zero experience in the energy field. (/s)

Rudy has been over there in the Ukraine for over a year, he says he has TONS of evidence against the Bidens but has never released any of it.

Is he required to release something?

Rudy is now under investigation in the Ukraine for his teams surveillance of Marie Yonovich. Gotta love that.

And just like Trump is impeached, so what?

You think anything will come of it?
