Just in time for the 2020 election, the Biden Burisma scandal is back in the news.
Ukraine prosecutors held a press conference where they displayed $6 million U.S. dollars they intercepted, which was part of a $50 million dollar bribe to stop criminal investigations into Hunter Biden’s former company “Burisma.”
The prosecutors are calling out Joe Biden by name, why aren’t Republicans digging?
Hey, Lindsey Graham, you listening? Get to work, you bum.
KYIV. June 22 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The initial bribe to close the case against Burisma was $50 million, not $6 million, former senior prosecutor of the Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO) Kostiantyn Kulyk said on Monday at a press conference at Interfax Ukraine.
Kulyk said Burisma officials were recently detained while transferring a $6 million bribe to an agent of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine to close the Burisma case.
“The initial amount of the bribe was not $6 million. The size of the bribe was $50 million,” he said, showing the relevant documents.
Kulyk said Burisma lawyer Andriy Kich was detained during the bribe attempt.
“Burisma representatives in 2019 delegated this task to Kich, according to the PGO. I have in my hands a report from the prosecutor from my group that investigated the Burisma case. As follows from the report, Burisma and the Deputy Prosecutor General Yenin tried to influence the closure of the case,” Kulyk said.
Member of Parliament Andriy Derkach said of Yenin: “Poroshenko arranged for Yenin to become Ukraine’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs under (President Volodymyr) Zelensky to control topics sensitive to Poroshenko, (former U.S. Vice President Joe) Biden and American (Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs since September 4, 2018) George Kent.”
“Yenin continues to this day to communicate with George Kent, reporting weekly over the telephone about the situation,” Derkach said.
In August 2019, Kulyk said, he received information that Zlochevsky allocated $ 50 million to close criminal cases related to the activities of Burisma. The main requirements are to close criminal cases involving Burisma.”
The officials are focused on the key question – which, according to prosecutor Kulyk, is how such a large amount of funds could be transferred.
The report goes on to say, “One of the episodes of official suspicion of Zlochevsky, case No. 1590, which supposedly was supposed to be closed for $6 million, includes facts of Zlochevsky’s complicity in money laundering using Burisma, as well as Rosemont Seneca Boa of Devon Archer from the Biden family’s orbit. It was $50 million to close not only Zlochevsky’s case, but also against a company close to former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden When Burisma representatives were detained giving a $6 million bribe, Rosemont Seneca Boa, and, accordingly, payments to Biden in the case already did not appear. Sytnyk personally confirmed this at his recent press conference,” Kulyk said.

Derkach claimed “the Bidens were suspicious, but disappeared along the way, together with another $44 million dollars, which was the main part of the bribe.”
“Everyone made good money. Even stranger is the absence of Biden’s name in the case in which he definitely appears, according to NABU Director (Artem) Sytnyk, who does not want to interfere in international political processes. The cynicism of the proposal is astounding. It was namely Sytnyk who interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election using fakes from the so-called ‘black ledger’ incriminating Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort,” Derkach said.
