(DCWatchdog.com) – Regarding bribery payoffs, Joe Biden is “the big guy” referenced by his son Hunter’s foreign business connections, including a wanted Ukrainian oligarch, GOP lawmakers have confirmed.
The revelation is based on the famous FBI informant document implicating Joe Biden in a $5 million bribery scheme from when he was Barack Obama’s vice president.
Republican members of the House Oversight Committee finally managed to review the FBI file last week.
Their review concluded that, according to the informant, Ukrainian businessman Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of energy company Burisma, called Joe Biden “the big guy.”
The Ukrainian prosecution wants Zlochevsky, who lives in exile, allegedly in Monaco. He was very close to Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president deemed a puppet of Russian leader Vladimir Putin, who was ousted by street protests in February 2014.
In February 2022, when Putin launched the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Yanukovych was supposed to head a puppet pro-Moscow regime in Kyiv.
His aide Zlochevsky employed Hunter Biden on Burisma’s board from 2014-2019, with a $1 million annual salary. After Joe Biden was no longer the US vice president, Hunter’s pay was cut in half.
“In this document, this confidential human informant absolutely also specified he understood that [big guy] to be Joe Biden,” Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) told Fox News about the FBI file.
“The ‘big guy,’ that is quoted in the documents,” Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) told Benny Johnson.
According to House Oversight Republicans, Biden received $5 million after threatening to withhold $1 billion in US aid to Ukraine unless a prosecutor investigating Burisma was fired.
Prosecutor Victor Shokin probed the company for corruption and money laundering in 2015 before Joe Biden forced his termination.
Biden bragged about the firing during a 2018 Council on Foreign Relations event.
“I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars… I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch. He got fired,’ Biden said.
His “big guy” alias was previously mentioned in a leaked 2017 email by Hunter Biden’s business partner, James Gilliar, and in comments by another former business partner, Tony Bobulinski.
