(DCWatchdog.com) – A person paid by the FBI has claimed that an executive from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma bribed President Biden with $5 million while he was vice president. This individual is seen as reliable and trustworthy by the FBI. The allegation is that the bribe happened between 2015 and 2016 to get Biden’s help stopping a Ukrainian prosecutor from investigating Burisma. The Washington Times has confirmed this.
In addition to the alleged bribe to Biden, Burisma reportedly paid another $5 million to Hunter Biden, the president’s son, who was part of the company’s board at that time. Hunter was also receiving a yearly salary of $1 million from Burisma. The informant claimed this payment plan was hidden through the use of several bank accounts.
Details from the informant, which had not been shared before, were disclosed after the House Oversight and Accountability Committee got access to an FBI memo on June 8. In reaction to these accusations, the Republican-controlled committee plans to issue subpoenas for new financial documents connected to Biden’s family and associates.
The committee’s chairman, James Comer from Kentucky, and the ranking member Jamie Raskin from Maryland, plan to review more FBI memos that record earlier discussions with the informant about these bribery allegations.
No devices for recording or note-taking were permitted when lawmakers read the FBI memo on June 8. However, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia said she quickly wrote down detailed notes about the memo and shared them with the press. The Times independently verified her account through a top-level source familiar with the document.
The informant claimed the bribery scheme was to stop an investigation into Burisma by firing Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. According to the informant, the scheme occurred when Burisma was trying to buy a U.S.-based oil and gas company and wanted to eliminate any issues with Shokin.
Greene mentioned that the informant has “two pieces of evidence showing proof of payment to Hunter and specifically, Joe Biden.” The Burisma official reportedly told the informant that it would take at least ten years for anyone to discover these payments due to the number of bank accounts involved.
The FBI first heard about these bribery claims in 2017, and they interviewed the informant again in 2020 about the same issue. The allegations were then forwarded to U.S. attorney David Weiss in Delaware in 2020, who is investigating Hunter Biden for possible tax fraud and a gun purchase.
President Biden dismissed the accusations that he accepted bribes as “malarkey.”
Nobody would find out about the Biden family payments for at least a decade, the informant was told by the Burisma official, “because of how many bank accounts there were.”https://t.co/cUJdRqLRIS
