WASHINGTON D.C. – As the impeachment trial for President Donald Trump gets underway, Democrats are focused on showing how the President committed unethical and illegal actions in his dealings with the Ukraine.
In an ironic twist that not even Hollywood could concoct, one of the men running to unseat the President is actually guilty of the very things that Trump is “on trial” for. He even admitted it. The video is everywhere.
Joe Biden and his son Hunter should be the ones up on charges for their illegal actions in dealing with the Ukraine.
And now, the State Department is saying that they will not release any documents pertaining to the former Vice President’s extortion of the Ukrainian government until after the end of the impeachment trial.
According to The Gateway Pundit:
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch in September sued the State Department for documents related to Joe Biden’s involvement in the firing of Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma Holdings.
Joe Biden’s drug addict son Hunter was sitting on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company and being paid by some accounts over $200,000 a month even though he had zero experience in the field.
Since this came to light, the younger Biden has also been on the hook after a test revealed that he fathered a child with an Arkansas stripper and then took off, denying any involvement.
Then-Vice President Joe Biden, who was tasked to oversee US dealings with Ukraine, threatened to withhold over $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine unless they fired Viktor Shokin.
Biden bragged about shaking down Ukraine and getting Mr. Shokin fired during a 2018 speech to the Council on Foreign Relations.
Instead of investigating Biden for corruption and extortion, the Democrats impeached President Trump for wanting to work with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to ferret out Biden corruption.
The State Department told Judicial Watch that it hasn’t even started searching for the documents and won’t be releasing anything until the end of January.
This led conservative pundit David Harris, Jr. to ask, “Mike Pompeo, where are you?”
And to the timing of when they release the documents, Harris, Jr. said:
“That’s like my buddy in the Mafia who told me Little Joey D was hit and killed by a truck. I asked him when it happened and he said, ‘Tomorrow afternoon at about 2:30.’”
The bigger question is not when the documents are going to be released, but why Biden is getting a pass for admittedly doing the very things Trump is accused of doing.
The media has had a field day over new hearsay accusations that President Trump was wrong to ask Ukranian leaders to investigate political corruption related to Joe Biden. Predictably, several House Democrats have used this news cycle to again demand Trump’s impeachment.
While the whistleblower complaint is based on hearsay, we do know that Joe Biden, while serving as vice president, pressured the Ukrainian government to fire the prosecutor who was investigating his son’s company.
Hunter Biden joined the board of Ukrainian national gas company Burisma in 2014 while his father was managing the United States’ Ukraine policy and despite zero personal experience in the field.
At the time Hunter Biden joined its board, Burisma was embroiled in allegations of corruption, allegations serious enough that Ukraine’s prosecutor general launched an investigation into the company.
Biden was so proud of his role in the prosecutor’s removal from investigating the company paying his son $50,000 per month merely to serve on its board that he bragged about it in a 2018 speech at an event for the publication Foreign Affairs.
In this speech, Biden boasts his threat to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loans from Ukraine if they did not agree to fire the prosecutor who happened to be investigating the company giving his son a cushy sinecure.
The prosecutor was fired, and the investigation was dropped six months later. While the investigation was just reopened last year, it has been a slow-moving process that has turned up little. At the time Biden pushed for the firing of Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor general, Shokin had plans to question Hunter Biden.
Here is Biden’s confession:
I remember going over and convincing our team, others, to convince that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee.
And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.
So, they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, “nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars.” They said, “you have no authority. You’re not the president.”
The president said—I said, “Call him.” (Laughter.) I said, “I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars.” I said, “You’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours.” I looked at them and said: “I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.”
Well, son of a bitch. (More laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.
So, the sitting VP of the US bribed a foreign government to fire a prosecutor who was going to be looking in his son for corruption.
And according to Biden and his supporters, he did nothing wrong.
Except cover for his son who has a history of criminal activity.
If Hunter Biden isn’t the biggest scumbag related to a presidential candidate, he’s got to be in the top two or three.
Fox Business News has reported that documents recently submitted to an Arkansas court as part of a paternity battle between Biden and former stripper Lunden Roberts tie him to an identity theft case from 2016.
A document titled “Notice of Identity Theft” was submitted by D&A Investigations, Inc., a firm owned by private investigator Dominic Casey. It should be noted that the firm once did work for Casey Anthony, the Florida woman who was accused of killing her daughter and was somehow exonerated. But we digress.
Casey requested to be named as an intervener in the paternity case and alleged there was a history of using stolen identities to conceal Biden’s location. However, the court papers do not specifically name Biden as the person who committed the identity theft.
However, the Union Journal reports that Biden is alleged to have used his deceased brother’s identification to get admitted to a rehab facility and also in order to make false statements to the police.
The court papers cite a Prescott, AZ police report, which describes what is alleged to have happened on the morning of Oct. 28, 2016, when a Hertz rental car employee is reported to have received a phone call around 10 a.m. and subsequently discovered “suspicious” items inside one of the rental cars.
“Stolen identities were used to check defendant Robert Hunter Biden into an Arizona facility and providing false statements to the Prescott Police Department,” the document states. “These stolen identities included those of his deceased brother, Joseph R. Beau Biden III, and Joseph McGee.”
What a scumbag. Using the identity of your stolen brother in order to check into a rehab facility?
Fox Business sought out Biden’s attorney for comment, however he did not immediately respond. Biden’s brother Beau died in 2015.
The employee of Hertz, who was only identified by her first name, “had received a call from Joseph McGee stating his friend was sick, and left the vehicle overnight with the keys in the gas cap area because they did not know what to do,” according to the document.
Several other items were also found in the car, according to the court papers.
“A bag containing the suspicious items, a cellular telephone (Apple) belonging to Shauna Stanglr, who is also known as Puma St. Angel, and a Delaware Attorney General badge belonging to Hunter Biden’s deceased brother Joseph R. Beau Biden III were provided to the police officer,” the court papers stated.
St. Angel is the co-founder of Grace Grove at Rejuvenation & Performance Institute in Sedona, AZ, a “lifestyle center” staffed with on-site therapists and coaches. It was not clear from the documents if Hunter Biden actually attended this center.
When police called the phone number that had previously called Hertz on Oct. 28, 2016, the woman who answered the phone identified herself as Puma. She said “Joseph” would return the call.
St. Angel denied any involvement in the situation and refused to comment when FOX Business reached out.
For his part, Casey had previously accused Biden of being involved in a separate counterfeiting scheme that accumulated in excess of $156 million dollars, according to court papers that were submitted last Dec. 23 and 27.
The paternity case has been especially interesting, as mentioned previously, in light of the revelation that Biden had been appointed to the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company which is part of the impeachment circus surrounding President Trump. Biden, who had no experience whatsoever in the energy sector was appointed to the board while his father, Joseph Biden, was vice-president.
In the paternity case, Casey and a separate intervener had called for Biden to release his finances, including all forms of income. In court papers filed Dec. 18 Roberts, through attorneys argued that Biden has failed to answer multiple questions regarding his finances.
In the results of a paternity test, Hunter Biden was confirmed as the father of Roberts’ child. Court papers state that Biden “has provided no support for this child for over a year. The court should not let the defendant continue to avoid his natural and legal duty to support his child by failing to provide basic information about his income, finances and lifestyle.”
Now, rather than distance himself from his son’s shenanigans, Joe Biden has become more obstinate. He has routinely snapped at reporters who ask him about Hunter and his ties to Burisma, as well as the paternity case.
But the younger Biden’s story doesn’t end there.
According to documents filed in an Arkansas court, Biden is reportedly the subject of “multiple criminal investigations.”
According to a story in the New York Post, Biden is being investigated regarding allegations of “fraud, money-laundering and a counterfeiting scheme.” The documents were filed relative to the previously mentioned paternity case. a paternity case that has been filed in Arkansas.
The claims against Biden relative to the fraud, money laundering and counterfeiting schemes were made by a Florida-based private investigations firm, D&A Investigations.
The allegations were struck down by a judge due to the fact they were filed by an “intervener” according to court papers. Biden had filed a motion to throw out the claims, saying that they weren’t germane to the paternity case and were filed “simply to make scandalous allegations in the pending suit to gain some media attention.”
The Post goes on to say that one of the investigations was related to Burisma Holdings.
According to the private investigator Biden “established bank and financial accounts with Morgan Stanley” for a “money laundering scheme” involving Burisma Holdings Limited.
According to the court documents, nearly $6.8 million was transferred from Burisma to the Morgan Stanley account between March 2014 and December 2015. Biden joined Burisma’s board of directors in March 2014. How ironic is that?
The court documents also make the claim that Biden and a group of business associates “utilized a counterfeiting scheme to conceal” the payments.
According to Ukraine’s new prosecutor general Ruslan Ryaboshapka:
“We are now reviewing all cases which were closed, fragmented or investigated earlier in order to make a decision on cases where illegal procedural decisions were taken.”
It will be interesting to see how many roads lead straight back to Hunter and Joe Biden.
