Breaking: Presidential candidate and Vice President Joe Biden now formally part of a criminal investigation
A court in Ukraine has officially declared today that Joe Biden is formally listed in a criminal case involving corruption
The crime involves Joe Biden allegedly taking part in a bribe to get rid of former Prosecutor General of the Ukraine Viktor Shokin who was investigating Biden’s son and his company Burisma Oil, which is in Ukraine.
Joe Biden even says on American television; ‘If the Prosecutor isn’t fired you’re not getting the money – Well son of a bitch he got fired!’ followed by the audience erupting into laughter at his bold and incriminating confession.
Shokin, who served as the Prosecutor General for a year between 2015 and 2016 was widely considered to be a key obstacle in the fight against corruption, with accusations that he had blocked cases against allies and influential figures.
He was dismissed in March 2016 after pressure from the United States, European Union, and international financial institutions, as well as Ukrainian anti-corruption campaigners.
And now it has come to light that Joe Biden bribed officials to get rid of Shokin from his position to stop the investigation into his son’s affairs.
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy confirmed that prosecutors in Europe and the US have opened a criminal investigation into leaked tapes that allegedly feature the country’s former leader, Petro Poroshenko, discussing conditions for a $1 billion loan with former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden
Ukrainian lawmaker Andrii Derkach, says the tapes which were released today, show two men introduced as “Vice President Joe Biden” and “President Poroshenko” who discuss replacing Shokin as a condition for the loan guarantees.
Joe Biden has previously said the loan was linked to the removal of Shokin as part of an anti-corruption effort backed by the U.S. government, EU, and international lenders.
In one of the edited fragments, “Poroshenko” says he convinced Shokin to resign as a “second step” of keeping the promises he made to Joe Biden in a bid to get the loan guarantees.
Shokin was eventually fired in March 2016 and appealed his firing in April 2020 claiming the Ukrainian government dismissed him in exchange for the loans which were promised on tape by Joe Biden.
In another part of the tape which Ukrainian lawmaker Andrii Derkach released, the man believed to be Joe Biden says that “now that the new prosecutor general is in place, we’re ready to move forward in signing that new $1 billion loan guarantee.”
Derkach, the son of Ukraine’s former security chief and has held a succession of official jobs after graduating from a spy academy in Moscow in 1993, said he obtained the recordings from unnamed “investigative journalists” and claimed they were made by the former President Poroshenko.
Joe Biden Finally Under Criminal Investigation From Ukraine Court
The left-wing media have denied all allegations, stating the investigation which has been in the making for months now is just a ‘smear on Joe Biden’s Presidential campaign.’
The Democrats and the media-alike, accuse Mr. Derkach of ‘trying to help Trump win the Presidency in 2020.’
“Derkach clearly plays for Trump,” Volodymyr Fesenko, head of the independent Kyiv-based Penta think tank, told the AP.
Fesenko noted, however, that the tape doesn’t offer anything incriminating.
“There is nothing super sensational in these conversations. Where is the dirt on Joe Biden? Where is the reference to Burisma?” he said.
“None of it is there. Instead, these are conversations between a dependent foreign politician and his boss, which is a sad but natural reality for us here, but is unlikely to impress the Americans.”
The Democrats have also accused President Trump of being in alliance with Russia and a quid-pro-quo with Ukraine, possibly in lieu of distracting citizens from Biden’s dealings with the former Soviet bloc.
No formal cases have been presented to the current President but the Vice President is now officially under investigation in a criminal manner by Ukraine.
Trump last year pressured current President Zelenskiy to investigate the Bidens.
“They governed the country in such a way that they could face many twists and convictions,” said Zelenskiy, who has repeatedly accused Poroshenko of corruption, accusations the former president has categorically denied.
In a Facebook statement, Poroshenko said the tapes were fabricated and described their release as part of a Kremlin-driven effort to “undermine bipartisan support of Ukraine in the United States.”
He called Joe Biden a “friend and ally of Ukraine” and criticized Zelenskiy for eroding Western support for Ukraine to Moscow’s benefit.
The Joe Biden campaign declined to comment on the latest Ukraine developments.
