Biden-Ukraine Accusations Senate report includes leaked phone calls

 

We have been through the Hunter-Biden Ukraine story what seems like forever. However this one may have some legs. Included in the video below is the well played Biden displaying his machismo in firing a Ukrainian prosecutor but included are the phone calls. Worth the listen:

Senate Republicans are set to release their long-awaited report on Joe and Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine, and is expected to conclude that Hunter Biden’s lucrative seat the board of Ukrainian energy giant Burisma impacted Obama-era Ukraine policy, which was led by Joe Biden at the time, according to The Hill.

The Bidens have denied any wrongdoing, however depositions from former Ukrainian officials  who were directly involved, as well as leaked recordings between Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Proroshenko have painted a picture of textbook corruption. Notably, Ukrainian parliamentarian Andriy Derkach was sanctioned by the Treasury Department for “spreading disinformation to ‘undermine’ the former vice president” when he leaked several recordings of “voices similar to Poroshenko and Biden” discussing the quid-pro-quo, which Derkach says a journalist gave to him.

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:

Romney’s National Security Adviser? Burisma Board Member Cofer Black

 

Interestingly, – Romney’s 2012 national security adviser sits on the board of Burisma. Just who in the world is one J. Cofer Black?

Why would Mitt Romney need a retired CIA spook as his national security adviser during his run for President? Why would Burisma want an old CIA spook on its Board?  Blackwater ring a bell? Someone who has about as much experience in energy as Hunter Biden?

The mystery. Yesterday I touched on Mitt Romney, Burisma and his demand for testimony from his BFF John Bolton.

John Bolton – pocketed $115,000 from Ukraine oligarch, Clinton Foundation donor

but I digress.

Cofer Black served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company that was being investigated for corruption. Black served with Hunter Biden, the son of former VP Joe Bidan; the Trump White House has relentlessly called for investigation into Biden’s role at Burisma, while completely ignoring Black’s mysterious role on the same board.

Biden was appointed for his name; Black has a wealth of knowledge and experience in covert operations and counter-terrorism as the article explains cited below.

Who was a greater risk to America’s safety and security? And why is the public left in the dark about this matter?

Cofer Black was a former Vice Chairman of Blackwater (2005–2008), he resigned in 2008 after learning about Blackwater’s illegal payments to Iraqi officials. After 26 years of service to the CIA, Cofer Black today now works in the private sector.

Well, this is certainly an odd coincidence! In fact, when you dig in, you find an amazing series of coincidences. If you believe in coincidences when the CIA is involved, that is.

Mitt Romney’s national security advisor in his 2012 campaign — a career CIA spook who rose to its top levels — sits on the board of directors of Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that formerly paid Hunter Biden $50k a month despite his complete lack of credentials or qualifications.

Back on October 6, 2011 presidential candidate Mitt Romney proudly announced that Joseph Cofer Black (listed as “Cofer Black”) was among the people chosen as “special advisers”

…to advise Governor Romney on foreign policy strategy, defense issues, intelligence matters, counterterrorism, and regional policy. These advisers will assist Governor Romney as he presents his vision for restoring American leadership in the world and securing our enduring interests and ideals abroad.

Mr. Black brought to this role his extensive background at the CIA, which he joined in 1974 and trained for covert operations. He rose rapidly through the ranks, becoming Director of the National Counterterrorism Center from 1999-2002. Coincidentally, this was the time in which Al Qaeda planned and carried out the 911 attack without hindrance from the counterintelligence apparatus of the intelligence community. But Black was not penalized, he failed upward, being appointed Ambassador at Large and Coordinator for Counter-terrorism by President George W. Bush in December 2002.

And in yet another amazing coincidence, Black was succeeded in his job as Director of the National Counterterrorism Center by John Brennan.

 

 

Cofer Black left the CIA in 2006 (does anyone ever completely leave the CIA after being a spook?) to join Blackwater, the huge contractor for services related to military and intelligence action, where he served as vice chairman until 2008. After illegal Iraqi payments were discovered.

So many coincidences.

Still more oddly coincidental is the background of Mitt’s adviser deep in the CIA, part of the intelligence community that has “six ways from Sunday” in foiling a mere president who might oppose them, according to Chuck Schumer.

Let’s do a flashback now that we know what we know.

President Elect Donald Trump sent a tweet on January 3rd 2017. The following is US Senator of NY Chuck Schumer’s response. That “the intelligence has 6 ways to Sunday of getting back at you [Trump].”

Chuck also stated that Donald was being very dumb to treat the “intelligence community” the way he was.

Dumb? Or was he willing to try and take them on?

 

 

Sept 19, 2019 | Phil Mudd – “I am about ready to blow a gasket.” He nails it.

During an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Mudd, a former FBI and CIA official, responded to a report from The Washington Post about a mysterious whistleblower complaint that involved a call in which Trump made a “promise” to his foreign counterpart. Story ends at about 3:35 on the clip then moves on.

 

Hint: Want to know why this will not go anywhere?

The Intelligence I.G. Atkinson – another plant by the Deep State

That is why the Senate will not vote for witnesses…does anyone think for one nanosecond the GOP or Dems want any of this to come to light? They will fold like cheap suits unless they intend to pull the kill switch and end our Republic.

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.

For the best in conservative news.

 

 

 

 

Congrats to Joe and Hunter Biden on the new baby!

 

Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic candidate, can welcome a sixth grandchild into his family after a DNA test confirmed that his son Hunter was the father of an an Arkansas “Baby Doe.”

The new family member marked a second landmark for Biden on Wednesday, who also turned 77.

Testing found “with scientific certainty” that Joe Biden’s son fathered the child, according to a motion filed Wednesday. He “is not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process,” the filing said.

“Baby Doe’s paternal grandfather, Joe Biden, is seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party for President of the United States of America (he has already filed for the March 2020 Arkansas primary). He is considered by some to be the person most likely to win his party’s nomination and challenge President Trump on the ballot in 2020,” the filing added.

The court document also said members of the Biden family were eligible to be protected by Secret Service.

Schiff: ‘Biden Ukraine Scandal should be off limits’

 

Trump made a comment that he should ask Barr to investigate Joe Biden’s foreign ties and suddenly like magic now the entire Left is saying presidential candidates shouldn’t be spied on. One thing you have to say for the Dems, they sure stick together. Not like the weasels on the GOP Senate Intelligence Committee who voted to try and snag Donald Trump Jr in a perjury trap.

Joe Biden

It was a miss step in my view, for Giuliani to announce he was headed for the Ukraine, but then, Rudy is a media hog anyway. Better heads prevailed and he has cancelled the idea apparently. But no matter, the story will come to naught, after all, it’s just good old Joe being good old Joe.

Now the China story. That is the one that might have better legs after Biden make his comments about China. Joe Biden: ‘China not bad folks, not competition to us’

This after his son made out like a bandit.

 

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on Sunday that Joe Biden’s Ukraine corruption scandal should be off limits as the 2020 US election approaches, and that President Trump shouldn’t be allowed to investigate – or encourage Ukraine to investigate.

Biden has come under fire for a March, 2016 incident in Kiev in which he threatened to withhold $1 billion in US loan guarantees to Ukraine unless President Petro Poroshenko fired his head prosecutor, General Viktor Shokin, who was leading a wide-ranging corruption investigation into natural gas firm Burisma Holdings. As it so happens, Joe’s son Hunter Biden sat on Burisma’s board, and waas indirectly paid as much as $50,000 per month

‘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,’” bragged Biden, recalling the conversation with Poroshenko.

Well, son of a bitch, he got fired,” Biden gloated.

The tape at about 5:40 addresses the Ukraine scandal.

Uncle Joe and Hunter Biden Ukraine corruption springs back to life

 

Hunter Biden inked a billion-dollar deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China just 10 days after the father and son flew to in 2013. That story has been out there forever and never got traction. But this Ukraine thing…well, that’s what happens when the Democrats insist on turning over the rocks on Trump and the Ukraine.

So China is not the story of the day. No, Hunter and the Ukraine is… one for our side.

 

Two years after leaving office, Joe Biden couldn’t resist the temptation last year to brag to an audience of foreign policy specialists about the time as vice president that he strong-armed Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor.

In his own words, with video cameras rolling, Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

But Ukrainian officials tell there was one crucial piece of information that Biden must have known but didn’t mention to his audience: The prosecutor he got fired was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden’s younger son, Hunter, as a board member.

U.S. banking records show Hunter Biden’s American-based firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers into one of its accounts — usually more than $166,000 a month — from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when Vice President Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine and its tense relations with Russia.

The general prosecutor’s official file for the Burisma probe — shared by senior Ukrainian officials — shows prosecutors identified Hunter Biden, business partner Devon Archer and their firm, Rosemont Seneca, as potential recipients of money.

Well worth the full read as John Solomon nails it at

The Hill

From 2014:

 

The private equity firm of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden inked a billion-dollar deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China just 10 days after the father and son flew to China in 2013.

The Biden bombshell is one of many revealed in a new investigative book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends by Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer. Schweizer’s last book, Clinton Cash, sparked a FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Snip….

Joe Biden has yet to comment on how the firm of a sitting vice president’s son was permitted to bag a billion-dollar deal with the Communist Chinese government—nor whether they had any knowledge or involvement in the deal. More at  Breitbart and how the scheme worked.

BONUS:

Then there was John Kerry –

A former senior Peace Corps official agreed to cooperate with any law enforcement investigations surrounding a scheme that funneled millions of Department of State dollars to a nonprofit founded and run by former Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter, recently published court documents show.

Warren “Buck” Buckingham agreed to cooperate as a condition of an agreement with the Washington, D.C., U.S. Attorney’s Office that would keep him from facing prosecution for a related illegal lobbying charge, court documents filed Thursday and made public Tuesday show. (RELATED: Former Peace Corps Official Who Steered Contracts To John Kerry’s Daughter May Avoid Prosecution)

Also as part of the agreement, Buckingham admitted to the charge that he lobbied his former Peace Corps colleagues to help his employer, Seed Global Health, secure a $6.4 million State Department-funded contract extension around September 2015.

Additionally, John Kerry’s State Department hired Buckingham as a consultant soon after the former Peace Corps official helped Vanessa’s nonprofit secure its first contract.

Flashback: Hunter Biden inked a billion-dollar deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China just days after the father and son flew to China in 2013.

 

For Saturday’s Flashback – almost to the year – I bring you news from last year’s swamp. It only took a year but looks like Biden’s son and his machinations just hit the news. From March 16, 2018 — bunkerville

The best way to money launder kick-backs apparently is to have the payments go through the children. If this story had been about one of Trump’s kids the howls out of the media would have been enormous. Look how far we got with Sander’s daughter? Chelsea? I won’t even attempt at that example. This isn’t the first we reported on dear Hunter: 

Bernie and Jane Sanders College corruption? Funneled daughter $500,000

Then we have this little number:

Joe Biden’s son takes position with Ukrainian gas company as ‘private citizen’

Does anyone think that dear old Hunter didn’t talk to dear old dad? Can you imagine how this looks to the world? Isn’t it even better that we learned this from Russia. This of course confirms that our interest in Ukraine is for the energy. At least that will be the accepted story. How about Nigeria? Yes, another great energy rich country. Two posts today. Here we go:

Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, has accepted a position with Ukraine’s largest private gas producer, but that in no way means the White House signed off on or endorses his hiring, presidential spokesman Jay Carney said Tuesday. (Chuckle time)

Burisma Holdings announced Tuesday that Hunter Biden, Biden’s youngest son, would serve on the company’s board of directors.

The Moscow Times first reported the news on Tuesday. Burisma Holdings announced that Hunter Biden, Biden’s youngest son, would serve on the company’s board of directors. The company in a news release on its website said Hunter Biden will be in charge of the Burisma’s legal unit and will “provide support” among international organizations.

In a statement published Monday on its website, Burisma Holdings announced Hunter Biden would join its board of directors and head the company’s legal unit.

“As a new member of the board, I believe that my assistance in consulting the company on matters of transparency, corporate governance and responsibility, international expansion and other priorities will contribute to the economy and benefit the people of Ukraine,” Hunter Biden said in the statement.

“Hunter Biden is a private citizen and a lawyer,” she said. “The vice president does not endorse any particular company and has no involvement with this company. For any additional questions, I refer you to Hunter’s office.”

A spokeswoman for Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP, a national law firm based in New York where Hunter Biden works, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Amid the escalating tensions between Ukraine and Russia in recent weeks, the European Commission, the executive body of the European Union, has tried to step in to try to prevent Russia from halting natural gas shipments to Ukraine unless it pays $3.5 billion in debts.
