In the spring of 2016, Joe Biden had the Ukrainian government fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin because he was investigating Burisma and Hunter Biden. He had the upper hand because Obama gave Biden the responsibility of awarding them a one billion dollar loan guaranty that the country could not survive without. As a result, Shokin was fired.
Biden bragged about getting Shokin fired:
Democrats still insist that putting a crackhead on the board of directors for an energy company with no experience in energy or Ukraine is perfectly understandable. But protecting your son and family’s fortune is really what it was about. Don’t believe me? Then consider the following.
After the 2016 election but before President Trump was sworn in, Joe Biden called Ukrainian President Poroshenko and tried to convince him to shut down all investigations pertaining to PrivatBank, who owned Burisma before Trump was installed in office. Biden told Poroshenko thatthis needed to be done in order for the IMF grant to go through.
Biden has said on many occasions that he did not ever discuss Hunter’s shady business practices. But, in the Ukraine Biden was named as an accused perpetrator of Shokin’s firing . The investigators in their complaint just described the perp as an unnamed American. The judge ordered than to change it and to name Biden in the complaint.

The infamous story of Joe Biden’s effort to force the firing of Ukraine’s chief prosecutor in 2016 has taken a new legal twist in Kiev, just as the former vice president is sewing up the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination in America.
In Kiev late last month, District Court Judge S. V. Vovk ordered the country’s law enforcement services to formally list the fired prosecutor, Victor Shokin, as the victim of an alleged crime by the former U.S. vice president, according to an official English translation of the ruling obtained by Just the News.
The court had previously ordered the Prosecutor General’s Office and the State Bureau of Investigations in February to investigate Shokin’s claim that he was fired in spring 2016 under pressure from Biden because he was investigating Burisma Holdings, the natural gas company where Biden’s son Hunter worked.
And here is the recording og the phone call made after Trump’s election:
Democrats have accused Trump of committing many crimes but have not been able to back up any of their claims with proof. At the same time, Joe Biden did actually commit crimes for which there is a mountain of evidence and they simply don’t care.
