Joe Biden - Ukraine

Joe Biden - Ukraine

What is the full story on Joe and Hunter Biden, Ukraine, and Burisma?

Obama Biden UkrainePresident Obama put the then Vice President Joe Biden in charge of Ukraine in April of 2014. Within days, a corrupt Ukrainian energy company named Burisma hired and added to its Board of Directors Joe Biden's son Hunter, who neither had any experience in the energy sector nor spoke Ukrainian nor had ever even been to Ukraine, and began paying him an annual salary of $600,000, an exorbitant sum for a Board position even in the US, let alone in Ukraine, where the average annual salary is still less than $4,000.

In August of 2015, Viktor Shokin became Ukraine's prosecutor general, equivalent to our attorney general, then began to be pressured by the corrupt former President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko to close an investigation into corruption at Burisma. Viktor Shokin refused, and testified in a sworn affidavit to a European court on September 4, 2019, "On several occasions President Poroshenko asked me to have a look at the criminal case against Burisma and consider the possibility of winding down the investigative actions in respect of this company, but I refused to close this investigation."

To force President Poroshenko to fire Viktor Shokin and end the investigation of its corruption, Burisma called Hunter Biden, who called his dad. In December of 2015, Joe Biden flew to Ukraine and gave an ultimatum to President Poroshenko: fire Prosecutor General Shokin within six hours or else lose $1 billion U.S. aid to Ukraine. Watch Joe Biden below brag about what happened next:

Is what Joe Biden did really that wrong?

Imagine a corrupt American energy company under a Justice Department investigation began paying $600,000 a year to the son of China's Premier, and the son has no experience in the energy sector, can't speak English, and has never even been to America. If China's Premier then flies to Washington D.C. and orders the President of the United States to fire, within six hours, our attorney general for refusing to end the investigation of corruption at the company that is paying his son $600,000 a year, and our President actually obeyed him, would we put up with that?

What should the American press have done?

It should have raised the alarm when Hunter Biden began taking money from Burisma to sell access to his father, and then raised hell when Joe Biden did as he had been bribed to do through his son. Instead, the overwhelmingly liberal and pro-Democratic American media turned a blind eye.

Who didn't turn a blind eye?

The former President Trump. When Ukraine elected a new and seemingly uncorrupted president in 2019, President Trump asked him to look into what had taken place in Ukraine involving a Ukrainian company, a Ukrainian prosecutor general, and a Ukrainian president.

How did the Democrats react?

They went on the offensive, which is often deemed the best defense, and impeached President Trump, accusing him of pressuring Ukraine to dig up dirt on his political rival.

Were they right?

For three reasons, no. First, the new Ukrainian president said he heard President Trump's request as consistent with his own efforts to root corruption out of Ukrainian politics. Neither he nor his aides thought President Trump was applying pressure, let alone feel it.

Second, Joe Biden engaged in corruptions in Ukraine while serving as Vice President of the United States. He also happened to be a potential political rival to the then President Trump. By labeling him only a political rival to President Trump, the liberal media told half the story, which is often a lie that is harder to detect.

Third, this wasn't the case of a politician telling someone to go and try to find dirt on his political opponent, but rather that opponent boasting about his dirt on television. Once the above video of Joe Biden became known, President Trump, as the chief executive of our government, had no choice but to look into it, especially before giving additional hundreds of millions American tax payer dollars to Ukraine as aid.

How can President Biden remain so self-righteous about what he did in Ukraine?
