Representative James Comer (KY-1) the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee pointed out something interesting in a recent tweet, “When reporters ask @POTUS [President of the United States] why bank records show his family received millions of dollars from foreign adversaries, he only laughs.”
It’s worth noting that previously when he was asked about the claims he accepted millions of dollars in bribes, Joe Biden tauntingly retorted, “Where’s the money?”*
Well, it turns out that it was once in a bank in Malta.
Emails from the Biden laptop shed light on Burisma’s opening of a Maltese bank account for Hunter Biden in the spring of 2016 revealed in the Kanekoa The Great Substack. This newly discovered development coincides with the allegations made by an FBI source, suggesting that Mykola Zlochevsky, the founder of Burisma Holdings, allegedly paid a $5 million bribe each to then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
In 2014, Ukraine initiated criminal cases against Zlochevsky and Burisma, the company where Hunter Biden held a board position and received substantial compensation. Zlochevsky, who faced investigations for money laundering and public corruption, allegedly employed the Vice President's son to leverage his political influence in order to halt the investigations.
In May 2016, Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi informed Hunter Biden via a series of emails about the opening of a Maltese bank account. Pozharskyi requested the documentation required for the account opening, including a copy of Hunter's passport, a bank reference letter, and a utility bill serving as proof of his residential address.
Hunter responded by stating, "We are working on this - I was traveling with my dad and had my passport abroad last week."
In 2018, Joe Biden proudly claimed that he pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko into firing Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. During a speech at the Council on Foreign Relations, Biden infamously declared, "I looked at them and said: I'm leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you're not getting the money." He added, "Well, son of a bitch. He got fired."
According to the FBI whistleblower document, the pay-for-play scheme is outlined, with Zlochevsky purportedly safeguarding 17 audio recordings of conversations with the Bidens as an "insurance policy." Among these recordings are two alleged conversations with then-Vice President Biden himself.
In the subsequent weeks, reported the Kanekoa The Great Substack, Hunter Biden's assistant, Joan Mayer, engaged in email correspondence with Vadym Pozharskyi, reportedly the third-ranking executive at Burisma. During these exchanges, Mayer provided copies of Hunter's passport, a utility bill, and a bank reference letter, as requested.
On May 13, 2016, Mayer sought clarification on the requirements for a "certified declaration of source wealth." She suggested providing a letter from Hunter's corporation, Owasco, to confirm his annual salary, asking, “Is that what the bank is looking for?”
On the same day, a Burisma attorney sent an email to Hunter, sharing the address and swift code of Satabank, a Maltese bank that would be shuttered for violating money laundering laws in 2018.
A few days later, Hunter's assistant sent "Hunter's tax ID number and signature" to the Burisma executive, who responded with a confirmation: "All received!"
The Kanekoa The Great Substack contains a wealth of further detail gleaned from the Hunter Biden laptop files, out of respect for their hard work we urge you to go Substack to read the full article and subscribe, as we do.
The FBI whistleblower who alerted Chairman Comer and Senator Chuck Grassley to the existence of an FBI human source report backing up the obvious implication of the email had access to the FD-1023 informant report that was “created or modified in June 2020″ and that form has finally been made available to Members of Congress.
The New York Post reported Reps. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) revealed details after reading the file at the Capitol. Both said Burisma owner Mykola Zlochevsky allegedly told an FBI source that he paid $5 million apiece to Hunter and then-Vice President Joe Biden in an attempt to shake off a corruption investigation.
“There [were] two separate transactions, one that went to Joe Biden for $5 million, one that went to Hunter Biden for $5 million,” Luna told Fox News correspondent Chad Pergram. “There’s no doubt in my mind that Joe Biden is guilty of bribery.”
“It was all a brib[e] to get [former Ukrainian prosecutor general Viktor] Shokin fired,” Greene said of the allegations against the Bidens. Shokin was fired in March 2016 and Joe Biden has publicly boasted that he leveraged $1 billion in US aid to get him thrown out of office.
Greene, whose account was confirmed by a third Republican member of Congress who read the document Thursday, said the file also described how in 2015 and 2016, Burisma “was looking to buy a US-based oil and gas company, and this came from being advised by [first son] Hunter Biden and his partners.”
“Around the time of this meeting was when Joe Biden as vice president had said that the prosecutor Shokin was corrupt. They hired Hunter on the board to make the problems go away,” she said. Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) said, “President Biden has lied repeatedly about his family’s business dealings. The allegations contained within the Biden bribery record track closely with [our] investigation into the Biden family’s influence peddling schemes.”
The Oversight Committee has not yet acquired President Biden’s bank records and although Biden often boasts of releasing his personal tax returns, he has not revealed in detail the sources of more than $13 million in income that was routed through “S corporations” in 2017 and 2018.
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) tweeted at Biden, “we don’t find selling out your country funny. Prove us wrong by releasing your and your family’s unredacted bank records. The FBI can’t protect you forever.”
Earlier in the day Mace read the file and said it has “damning evidence” that the commander-in-chief “sold out his country in an ongoing bribery scheme.”
“The allegations in this document are worse than has been reported so far,” Mace said in a statement.
Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), who also read the document Thursday, tweeted, “Joe, the money is hidden in the DOZENS of LLCs you & your family created to HIDE THE MONEY. You can run, but you can’t hide from House Republicans.”
*It is interesting to note that when former President Donald Trump was accused of a crime he was outraged and said, “I’m an innocent man.” However, when Joe Biden was accused of a crime he smirked and said, “Where’s the money.”
