Look, the entire world (that cares enough to pay attention) is well aware that Hunter Biden is a grifter of the highest order. From getting kicked out of the military for using drugs, to numerous stints in rehab, to being a dead beat dad, working for big bucks in industries he has no experience but his daddy is point man of US negotiations with … you get the idea. Hunter Biden is a world class s******.
The Obama/Biden administration apparently did nothing to stop Hunter Biden from working on the board of Burisma even after they discovered how crooked the Ukrainian company was. Do you really believe the Biden/Harris administration would do anything but bury this information? I don’t think so, but they might ask to be cut in. Documents have been found that prove it the State Department was aware of Burisma’s corruption.
Hunter Biden, the son of Joe served as a board member of Burisma from April 2014 to April 2019. He was hired right after he was thrown out of the military for failing a drug test. Burisma paid him tens upon tens of thousands of dollars a month. The State Department found that Burisma had paid seven million in bribes to Ukrainian prosecutors.
According to State Department memos, US officials became concerned about the bribes as early as January of 2015, less than a year after Hunter joined the board. Despite that, the administration took no effective action to extricate Hunter from the situation and Hunter continued to rake in the big money from the Ukrainian gas company. That was just after Ukrainian and British investigations of the company.
At the time that Hunter joined Burisma, Joe Biden was in charge of diplomacy between the United States and Ukraine, but Joe seemed unconcerned about the conflict of interest. You would think that, as point man in Ukraine for US policy, and his son on the board of a powerful, influential and apparently corrupt corporation, that Joe would have been made aware of the situation. If he did know, he didn’t care as long as his son raked in those big bucks, or so it seems.
On Monday,John Solomon’s, Just the News reported:
Just eight months after Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter joined the board of Burisma Holdings. [in April 2014]. U.S. officials in Kiev developed evidence. That the Ukrainian gas company may have paid a $7 million bribe to the local prosecutors. The same prosecutors investigating the firm for corruption, according to interviews and State Department memos.
The [bribe] anecdote, is buried in five-year-old diplomatic files. It provides a fresh illustration of the awkward, uncomfortable conflict of interest State officials perceived. 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.
Just like the State Department, the GOP in the Senate has expressed concerns about the conflict of interest of the Bidens . Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) are said to be wrapping up their investigation of Hunter and Joe Biden’s involvement in the scandal. But, even knowing that Hunter was allowed to continue.
The way things have been going I would not hold my breath if you are hoping for justice. These days there seems to be no justice, only ‘just us.’
