(GoRealNewsNow.com) – The FBI document implicating Joe Biden in a $5 million bribery scheme involves the Bidens’ family business affairs in Ukraine, the GOP chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, revealed in a bombshell announcement.
The FBI document – an FD-1023 informant file – was subpoenaed by Comer (R-KY) in early May, but the agency has refused to hand it over to Congress.
Comer and committee ranking member Jamie Raskin (D-MD) were allowed to review the file at the FBI headquarters on Monday.
After that, Comer declared the information had come from a highly reliable FBI source.
The House Oversight Committee leader disclosed further the document was dated June 30, 2020. He made it clear it involved the Biden family’s dealings in Ukraine.
“Yes, it is Ukraine,” Comer told Just the News, as cited by Breitbart News.
“This form 1023 involves a business person from Ukraine, who allegedly sent a bribe, a substantial bribe to then Vice President Joe Biden,” he added.
The report notes that Joe Biden was the Obama administration’s “point person” for Ukraine and visited the country six times in his eight years as vice president.
In April 2014, Mykola Zlochevsky, a pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarch, i.e., politically-involved tycoon, appointed Hunter Biden as a member of the board of his energy company Burisma, with $1 million annual salary ($83,000 monthly).
Zlochevsky was a key member of the cabinet of Ukraine’s former pro-Putin president, Viktor Yanukovych, from 2010 until February 2014, when pro-Western street protests brought it down.
Russia’s leader Putin responded to Yanukovych’s toppling by invading and seizing Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in March 2014 and stirring an insurrection in the Donbas region.
Hunter Biden’s direct benefactor Zlochevsky is now wanted by Ukraine and lives in exile, reportedly in Monaco.
Hunter Biden served on Burisma’s board until 2019. The report points out that his salary halved after Joe Biden’s term ended in 2017.
In 2016, Joe Biden stated he had forced the firing of Viktor Shokin, a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma, by threatening to withdraw $1 billion in US aid to Ukraine.
Mike McCormick, a former Obama White House stenographer, claims Joe Biden boosted US support for Ukrainian natural gas shortly after his son joined Burisma.
