Joe Biden’s 2020 Ukrainian Nightmare
Yesterday we reran a story about Biden’s brother getting a nice fat building contract in Iraq. ($1.5 billion.) And there are other crony stories lingering in the former Vice President’s past.
(From The Hill)
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…
…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.
