Breitbart broke this story today:
According to Ukrainian officials, three suspects, who all have ties to Zlochvesky, attempted to bribe anti-corruption officials investigating the Burisma and its founder for embezzlement. Burisma, thus far, has denied any part in the scheme.
Nazar Kholodnytsky, the head of Ukraine’s national anti-corruption bureau, claimed the alleged scheme had no connection with either Hunter Biden or his father, the presumptive Democrat nominee.
“Let’s put an end to this once and for all. Biden Jr. and Biden Sr. do not appear in this particular proceeding,” Kholodnytsky told reporters at the press conference.
Despite the fact that the Bidens were not involved in the alleged scheme, the issue does not bode well for them, especially as Congress is investigating Burisma’s ties to the Obama administration.
We reported last month that the Senate Homeland Security Committee voted to subpoena Blue Star Strategies, a Washington, D.C. based public relations firm once employed by Burisma to help fight allegations of public corruption. In May 2019, the New York Times reported that Hunter Biden was linked to Burisma’s hiring the firm.
Biden’s son was hired in 2014 to Burisma’s board of directors. This was at the same time his father was tapped to be the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine. Despite having no background in either eastern Europe or the energy industry, Hunter Biden was paid as much $83,000-per-month for his services.
If something sounds suspicious it probably is.
The report also recalled:
A Ukrainian official with ties to Zlochevsky admitted in October 2019 the only reason Hunter Biden was tapped to join Burisma was to “protect” the company from foreign scrutiny.
