State Dept. Documents Show Burisma Caught Paying $7 million Bribe Months After Hunter Biden Placed on Its Board


 

State Department documents were buried for five years and finally uncovered that show that Burisma, the company Hunter Biden was a Board member of, paid a $7 million bribe to local prosecutors investigating the Ukrainian firm’s corruption.

All of this news of course comes a day late and a dollar short. No doubt all of this will come out after the November election. After all, this only took 5 years to find this piece of gold. Maria Bartiromo comes up with some great interviews on Sunday morning. She keeps whacking away. Of course the Democrats are shaking in their boots. Still its worthy of note since no one else is covering it. Solomon’s piece is well worth the full look for those who enjoy the weeds.

John Solomon’s Just the News reported today:

Just eight months after Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter joined the board of Burisma Holdings, U.S. officials in Kiev developed evidence that the Ukrainian gas company may have paid a $7 million bribe to the local prosecutors investigating the firm for corruption, according to interviews and State Department memos.

 

State officials believed the alleged bribe was paid between May and December 2014 and got confirmation from one prosecutor. They argued the bribe amounted to a “gross miscarriage of justice that undermined months of US assistance” to fight corruption in Ukraine, contemporaneous memos show.

The anecdote, buried in five-year-old diplomatic files, provides a fresh illustration of the awkward, uncomfortable conflict of interest State officials perceived as they tried to fight pervasive corruption in Ukraine under Joe Biden’s leadership while the vice president’s son collected large payments as a board member for an energy firm widely viewed as corrupt.

A short time after this Joe Biden was in the Ukraine demanding that a prosecutor looking into Burisma be fired before the Obama Administration would provide the Ukraine money desperately needed to keep the country afloat.

Senator Ron Johnson wants to know what was the reason for the firing of the prosecutor in the Ukraine that Biden bragged about:

Other than this all is well in the swamp.

    Great find, I haven’t seen this anywhere. (Which is not surprising) But of course all of this is a coincidence, as is Hunter getting the job in the first place…

    This is my take —which I know doesn’t matter.

    Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is looking. So, here we have a society built and maintained by a culture of corruption. This is how Slavic people are, and Ukraine isn’t standing alone. What was Hunter’s reason for accepting a position on a board of governors for which he has no expertise? He took the position because (1) the Biden family is devoid of integrity, (2) to enrich himself with a generous piece of the pie, and (3) because he knew he could get away with it. And, he has.

    My greater concern is why has it taken so long for this bribe to be unveiled? It points to the problem we have in our form of government —where administration officials are immune from prosecution, where the system “accords” certain privileges to former officials because of their positions … preferences denied to everyone else. It is this double standard that causes people to lose faith in our system. Government insiders know this, and I suspect that among more than a few, this IS the purpose of all their corrupt machinations. Imagine if people became so fed up with government corruption that they refused to vote on Election Day. What then? Who wins?

    Look, we will always have corrupt politicians, at every level of government and in every party. This isn’t the problem. The problem is that they are seldom hauled into court, stood before a jury of “we the people,” and then packed off to jail if found guilty. The American people must be able to see that justice is blind. For the past 40 years, justice has been peeking through her blindfold. Now honestly, this does benefit people who belong in jail, and they’re the same people who decided whether to proceed with criminal charges. The fox is guarding the hen house. Capone went to jail for tax evasion; Al Sharpton got a job on MSNBC.

    This sort of filth will continue until we use very loud voices to demand equal justice for all. No cutting slack for anyone, no matter how politically connected they are, no matter their skin color or gender. Equal must mean equal.

    I now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

      I think, Mustang, that the question of why it took so long for this to be unveiled pales to insignificance beside a much larger question. That question is, once it was unveiled, why is nothing done about it? Why is not one single person in government, Republican, Democrat, Independent or Green Party, demanding that the Biden family be brought to justice for it?

      Some have compared the 60’s mayhem protesting against The Man,with today’s all out assault on our representative government, the police, capitalism-with most notably corporate America siding with the black Marxists who want to take them down nationwide protests each and every time a black thug gets his comeuppance, No comparison my friend. In the 60’s a cop could take his billy-club to a protesting a-hole like Bernie and not lose his job, his pension, his home and his honor.

    But, of course, Hunter brought all of that expertise in oil and gas and pipeline design and international relations. Never mind.
