Hunter Biden has eyed terminating corruption investigations into Ukrainian energy business Burisma by former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
According to the Daily Mail, Hunter Biden worked with Democratic Party strategists to assist in terminating corruption investigations into Ukrainian energy business Burisma by former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
In June, US Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene alleged that Burisma, a Ukrainian oil industry holding firm, allegedly paid then-US Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden a total of $10 million to help halt an investigation into the company by former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
The Daily Mail cited emails from Hunter’s laptop in which he corresponded with Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi and Mykola Zlochevsky to configure ways to shut down Shokin’s investigation.
The younger Biden is notorious for his involvement in numerous scandals, including substance abuse, commercial sex, and most importantly, high-level corruption.
Burisma was linked to Blue Star Strategies, which is headed by former Democratic leaders, according to Biden.
Pozharskyi stated in an email outlining Blue Star Strategies’ role that he would “like us to formulate a list of deliverables, including… meetings/communications resulting in high-ranking US officials in Ukraine (US Ambassador) and in US publicly or in private communication/comment expressing their ‘positive opinion’ and support of Nikolay [Zlochevksy]/Burisma to the highest level of decision-makers here in Ukraine.”
The email detailed that the main goal of the efforts was to end any Ukrainian cases against Zlochevsky.
An earlier Politico report suggested that lawyers representing Hunter Biden threatened to subpoena US President Joe Biden to testify in court if the Justice Department pursued charges against his son.
In a letter from Hunter Biden’s lawyer, Chris Clark, it was indicated that President Biden could have been considered a fact witness for the defense in any potential criminal trial involving his son.
This response came after reports emerged in October 2022 that Hunter Biden might face charges related to purchasing a firearm while being an illegal drug user.
