State Department reported Burisma paid bribe while Hunter Biden served on board, memos show

John Solomon

EXCERPT:

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 concerns were eventually reported to the FBI, although it is not clear whether the allegations were ever investigated more fully, according to current and former U.S. and Ukrainian government officials.

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.

The concerns first came to a head in January 2015, the memos show, about eight months after Hunter Biden was named to Burisma's board and after two major corruption investigations — one in Ukraine and the other in Britain — were opened against the gas firm.

Democrat media defense:

“Hunter didn’t know about it, but if he did know he tried to stop it, but if he didn’t try to stop it he wasn’t for it, but if he was for it he made them pay less.”

Currahee!

One of those topics that Sleepy Joe will not be asked about at his next non-press conference where he will not take questions from  non-curious investigative “journalists”  from PMSNBC or the Grey “handjob” Lady or the Atlantik or the Washington Com-Post..........

It's because the crickets are to busy speaking for the MSM and Left.

From yet another one of Solomon's Ukraine-Biden pieces (how many does he have to pump out for you to get that he is full of go-nowhere puff?) not one you have actually read:

The memos discussing the alleged bribe make no mention of Hunter Biden or his role on the board.

 

This is just more of the same "Biden's conflict of interest" teasing with absolutely nothing in terms of evidence of any actual corrupt act by either Hunter or his dad.

This is all nice and dandy.

But nothing will ever be done about it but talk.

Getting pretty tired of this crap and everyone of these elites getting away with crimes.
