Typical of you....In one of their central business deals, Hunter and Archer were placed on the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma. Notably, Hunter and Archer are American citizens without any personal or business ties to Ukraine, nor any experience in the energy sector. Nonetheless, they received millions in this position for an unknown reason — until now. v
Archer testified that Hunter was required to get help from then-Vice President Joe Biden “regarding the Ukrainina prosecutor Viktor Shokin.” Left-wing “fact-check” articles, including one from CNN, have claimed that Shokin was not investigating Burisma or considered a threat to the company.
“He was a threat,” Archer explained. “He ended up seizing assets of [Burisma owner] Nikolai [Zlochevsky] — a house, some cars, a couple properties. And Nikolai actually never went back to Ukraine after Shokin seized all of his assets.”
Numerous people have corroborated Archer’s testimony, including Shokin himself as well as an FBI informant. The credible informant said Burisma CEO Zlochevsky paid off the Bidens with $10,000,000 for the firing of Shokin.
Shokin won a court order on Feb. 2, 2016 and seized Zlochevsky’s property. Shokin was fired roughly two months later on March 29. Biden later bragged that he demanded that Ukraine fire Shokin or else the U.S. would withhold $1 billion in aid. This ultimately stopped Shokin from continuing to seize Zlochevsky’s personal assets and investigate his company, where Hunter and Archer “worked.”
Ukrainian Prosecutor Gives Proof of Biden Taking Bribes (msn.com)
Nothing to see here, move along...
1. The seizure of assets happened in 2016. When did Joe demand Shokin be fired? Ummm....2015. Remember that Shokin was accused of stealing from various companies and individuals. I wonder if he got to drive the Rolls...Look up the diamond scandal.
Shokin was widely faulted for declining to bring prosecutions of elites’ corruption, and he was even accused of hindering corruption investigations. His deputy, Vitaliy Kasko, resigned in February 2016, alleging that Shokin’s office was itself corrupt.
The International Monetary Fund warned Ukraine in February 2016 that it risked losing financial support if it did not clean up its act. The Financial Times explained in its article on the warning that then-President Petro Poroshenko was facing pressure to replace Shokin, whom the newspaper described as a “long-time loyalist” of the president; the article continued, “Mr. Shokin has been criticized for failing to bring to justice any of the snipers who killed dozens of protesters in central Kiev in the final days of the revolution, and for dragging his feet over investigating senior officials and businesspeople.”
Fact check: What Trump has been getting wrong on Biden and Ukraine | CNN Politics
As your own source admits...Hunter was hired based on a suggestion from Devon Archer...So Burisma decided having the Biden name on their list of directors would add to their own credibility. Did Joe help Burisma? No...
Your link said there was proof of a bribe. No there wasn't.
Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky admitted that he felt “forced or coerced to pay” the Bidens in exchange for political favors.
Admitted to whom? Where? Shokin is not a reliable source for obvious reasons...he has an axe to grind.
