Reporter from the Hill John Solomon, wrote a piece about Joe Biden bragging he strong-armed the Ukrainian Government into not prosecuting his son Hunter while he was Vice-President.
Solomon claims Biden was bragging to an audience last year about how he got a Ukrainian Prosecutor fired for investigating his Son Hunter’s natural gas firm. He was capable of forcing the Ukrainian President by threatening to take away funding in U.S. loans while he was Vice-President.
Solomon wrote”Two years after leaving office, Joe Biden couldn’t resist the temptation last year to brag to an audience of foreign policy specialists about the time as vice president that he strong-armed Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor.”
Solomon noted, “In his own words, with video cameras rolling, Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.”
Solomon concluded, “But Ukrainian officials tell me there was one crucial piece of information that Biden must have known but didn’t mention to his audience: The prosecutor he got fired was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden’s younger son, Hunter, as a board member.”
