The FBI has raided the offices of Optima Management Group in Cleveland and Miami. The company has ties to Privatize Bank that was founded by Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoisky. Kolomoisky also owned Burisma Holdings that hired Devon Archer and Hunter Biden onto the board of directors.
Privat Bank received billions of dollars from the IMF. It is believed that much of the money was laundered and later was embezzled by Kolomoisky. The money was allegedly laundered through shell companies in Cyprus, Belize and the British Virgin Islands. Then much of the money was run through Optima Management Group.
The FBI is very interested in how much money the fund received and where did it go. It has been rumored that Hunter Biden was paid a little over $83,000 a month with laundered funds.
Privat Group is controlled by Ukraine’s largest commercial bank. Kolomoisky owned the bank but the government seized Privat Bank and Burisma on the grounds that he was using his companies to launder and embezzled There are billions not yet accounted for and the FBI is wanting to find hidden accounts or perhaps real estate purchases that are generating income for Kolomoisky.
At least one member of congress could be sweating bullets right now. That would be Rep Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. Her husband was hired by several Kolomoisky businesses and was paid $700,000 for alleged legal services. This investigation could suck both Mucarsel-Powell and her husband Bob into where and how the money originated from and what does Bob Powell know about Kolomoisky’s money laundering.
From The Gateway Pundit
Privat Group is controlled by Ukraine’s largest commercial bank, PrivatBank, whose owner was Igor Kolomoisky. PrivatBank was later nationalized by the Ukraine in December 2016, taking 100% control of the PrivatBank entity, a month after the 2016 US election:
On January 16, 2017, Joe Biden visited Ukraine as part of his last foreign trip as Vice President.
What was the purpose of this trip (his 5th since 2014), just a mere 3 days before his last day in office? pic.twitter.com/dgyL9iwm4A

The international financial agency had rushed the money to Ukraine in April, in response to what IMF managing director Christine Lagarde called a “major crisis.” She went on to hail the government’s “unprecedented resolve” in developing a “bold economic program to secure macroeconomic and financial stability.” Over the next five months the international agency poured the equivalent of $4.51 billion ($2.97 billion in “Special Drawing Rights”—the IMF’s own currency) into the National Bank of Ukraine— the country’s central bank. Much of this money was urgently needed to prop up the local commercial banks. In theory, the IMF appeared to require direct supervision of how the Ukrainian banks used the aid. In fact, it appears the banks got to select their own auditors.” [source]
