This is hardly news for those who venture outside the mainstream news sites, but the evidence keeps growing.
A top executive for Ukrainian energy firm Burisma who allegedly bribed then-Vice President Joseph R. Biden with a $5 million payment in 2016 referred to Mr. Biden as the “big guy” and has audio recordings of conversations with Mr. Biden, according to a secret FBI memo involving a paid informant.
The Burisma executive’s nickname for Mr. Biden mirrors a claim by a former Biden family associate who in 2020 described a payout scheme for a business deal with a Chinese energy company in which 10% of the profits would be held “for the big guy.” The “big guy,” the associate said, was Mr. Biden.
A source familiar with the FBI memo confirmed to The Washington Times that the Burisma executive identified Mr. Biden as the “big guy” involved in the bribery scheme.
Sen. Charles Grassley said Monday the memo also reveals that the Ukrainian energy company executive has audio recordings of conversations with Mr. Biden. The Iowa Republican said in a floor speech that the FBI-generated document contained redactions that cite Mr. Biden’s audio recordings.
Mr. Grassley said memo indicates that the Burisma executive has fifteen audio recordings of phone calls between him and Hunter Biden and two audio recordings of phone calls between him and then-Vice President Joe Biden.
“These recordings were allegedly kept as a sort of insurance policy for the foreign national in case he got into a tight spot. The [FBI document] also indicates that then-Vice President Joe Biden may have been involved in Burisma employing Hunter Biden,” Mr. Grassley said. …
The “trusted” and “highly credible” FBI informant in the Burisma bribery memo said energy company executives paid the $5 million in 2015 and 2016 to solicit Mr. Biden’s help in thwarting a Ukrainian prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma.
Burisma paid an additional $5 million to Hunter Biden, who was serving on Burisma’s board at the time and was receiving a $1 million annual salary at the energy company, the informant said. The scheme was concealed using multiple bank accounts, the Burisma executive told the FBI informant. …
Committee Chairman James Comer, Kentucky Republican, believes the foreign deals may undermine the president and threaten national security. He said the Biden family and associates might have pocketed up to $20 million in profits from business deals conducted with China, Russia, Ukraine and other countries during Mr. Biden’s second term as vice president, leading up to his bid for the presidency in 2020.
How long can the mainstream media ignore the Biden bribery evidence? Until December 2024, perhaps?
The Clinton Foundation was a hundred million dollar organization. The Obama’s net worth is well over $60m. The presidential salary is less than half a million per year.
Let’s see if the controlled opposition of FOX picks it up tonight?
I’m sure all Leftist MSM will ignore it as long as possible and then of course they’ll go after the informant as “uncredible”. Yawn, same day, different stuff.
