Information from an FBI informant revealed that President Joe Biden took $5 million in bribes from Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, Breitbart reported. This revelation came from the House Oversight Committee after it obtained documents about the transactions.
Initially, FBI Director Wray was not going to let the House Oversight Committee see the documents. However, just before the committee was to convene to hold Wray in contempt of Congress, he allowed it.
The informant said Biden threatened to withhold aid if Ukraine didn't fire a prosecutor who was investigating the company. At that time, Joe Biden was vice president, and Hunter Biden was receiving an $80,000 per month paycheck from the natural gas company despite his lack of education or expertise in the industry.
“I said, 'I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars.' I said, 'You’re not getting the billion," Biden boasted at a 2018 meeting with the Council on Foreign Relations.
"I’m going to be leaving here in, I think, it was about six hours," Biden recalled. "I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,'" Biden said.
"Well, son of a bitch. He got fired," Biden confirmed.
The informant's assertion about the payment puts a new spin on a situation that already appeared unethical on its face. Added to Biden's own admission, it now seems the company was willing to shell out the $5 million to get rid of the prosecutor.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who is a member of the Oversight Committee, saw the confidential file firsthand. She and other House Republicans believe that Joe and Hunter Biden each received $5 million in the scheme.
The money was allegedly sent in smaller increments so as not to raise any red flags. If this is true, it amounts to bribery and pay-for-play.
"There’s no doubt in my mind that Joe Biden is guilty of bribery 100 percent," Rep. Anna Luna (R-FL), who viewed the same document as Boebert, said. "There was two separate transactions, one that went to Joe Biden for $5,000,000, one that went to Hunter Biden for $5 million."
Some, like Boebert, believe that Hunter Biden's Burisma gig was also a bribery attempt. "It is noted that he [Hunter Biden] had no experience, that the Biden family business has no experience in these oil and gas companies in these businesses," the Colorado congresswoman pointed out.
"Yet he was appointed to the board. And the payments were made for bribery," Boebert said. "Shokin is certainly mentioned in these documents," Boebert said about Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor allegedly fired by Joe Biden.
"And all of this really surrounds around that public statement made by Joe Biden threatening Viktor Shokin. And we’re seeing that there were forced payments made," Boebert added.
There have been persistent questions about what the Bidens were up to in Ukraine and how they benefited. Now it seems that there is a smoking gun linking the Bidens to shady practices, and they must be held to account if it's true.
