John Solomon FOIA Request Yields Emails Revealing Burisma Leveraged Hunter Biden’s Board Membership With U.S. State Department to End Corruption Investigation

It appears that Joe Biden might have lied when he denied having played any role in the firing of Ukraine’s prosecutor Viktor Shokin in order to terminate the investigation of corruption at Burisma Holdings, where Biden’s son Hunter was a board member.

( Hunter Biden and his Ukrainian gas firm colleagues had multiple contacts with the Obama State Department during the 2016 election cycle, including one just a month before Vice President Joe Biden forced Ukraine to fire the prosecutor investigating his son’s company for corruption, newly released memos show.

During that February 2016 contact, a U.S. representative for Burisma Holdings sought a meeting with Undersecretary of State Catherine A. Novelli to discuss ending the corruption allegations against the Ukrainian firm where Hunter Biden worked as a board member, according to memos obtained under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. (I filed that suit this summer with the help of the public interest law firm the Southeastern Legal Foundation.)

Investigative journalist John Solomon is now in possession of emails between the Burisma energy company and U.S. State Department as a result of FOIA request.

The emails clearly prove Burisma was seeking assistance from the State Department to influence the Ukraine prosecutor to drop the corruption probe against Burisma and doing so by leveraging Hunter Biden’s board membership.

Biden, who Democrats have positioned as the frontrunner for their party’s presidential nomination, was dumb enough to brag about his actions at at meeting of the Council on Foreign Relations, in 2018:

“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’”

“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. 

Only a fool would believe Burisma hired the Vice President’s son for any other reason that daddy’s ability to influence U.S. policy.  

By his own admission, Hunter Biden has no particular expertise in either energy or Ukraine.  Still, he was paid $83,000 per month. Weigh that amount against the $330,000 Directors on Exxon’s board are paid annually.

None of this should be surprising since Biden has a history of using his political influence to benefit his son’s business’.  

Here’s former State Department employee Marie Harf, now a Fox News commentator, laughing derisively as Steve Hilton lays out enough evidence to trigger an investigation of the Bidens.  

Harf actually has the audacity to say there’s no evidence of corruption as though Hilton hadn’t said anything for the previous 75 seconds.

As the evidence against Biden continues to grow, keep in mind the same journos exclaiming a lack of evidence were claiming a trip Michael Cohen never took to Prague was evidence of Trump’s wrongdoing.

The inexplicable defense of Biden, in the face of the mountain of evidence now in the public square, raises the question of how many other members of the UniParty (Democrats & Republicans?) might be implicated if ‘Sleepy Joe’ is forced to take the fall?
