Russia’s independent Novaya Gazeta , an independent newspaper published a story about Hunter Biden and the 3.4 million dollars he got from Burisma and how the money was laundered to make it look clean. The entire deal looks shady as the inside of the Amazon forest. Hunter Biden had no experience in the energy field and had just been kicked out of the military just 2 months before for rampant drug use. What company would see someone like that as an asset?

No one but Hunter Biden did have one thing going for him, Joe Biden. And that was worth 3.4 million dollars to them.

From The Gateway Pundit

Russia’s independent Novaya Gazeta published a devastating piece Tuesday on corrupt the Ukrainian oligarchs who are involved with the Burisma Holdings company in Ukraine. According to Novaya Gazeta corrupt Ukrainians transferred criminally obtained money to Hunter Biden’s Rosemont Seneca accounts.

Novaya Gazeta even produced a document that shows $3.4 million was paid out to Hunter Biden… $3.4 million!

Two months after he was fired from the US Navy for drug use Hunter Biden was placed on the Burisma board and soon was making $50,000 per month.

Here is the document of payment published by Novaya Gazeta.

Novaya Gazeta reported:

The Ukrainian company Burisma, owned by a colleague of Yanukovych, invited Biden’s son to the board of directors immediately after the fall of Yanukovych. Hunter Biden received 50 thousand dollars a month. After the Ukrainian prosecutor general Shokin opened a criminal case against Burizma, Biden Sr. insisted on dismissing Shokin, threatening to stop a $ 1 billion loan to Ukraine. Voluntarily or involuntarily, the US vice president acted as the “roof” of Burisma…

…The position of the investigation is that this purchase was paid with money obtained by criminal means, and it was precisely this money, “acquired by a malicious hat in especially large proportions”, that Nikolai Zlochevsky was allowed to pay to the members of the Board of Directors of Burisma. In particular, 1 million euros was transferred to the account of the ex-president of Poland, Alexander Kwasniewski, and 3,404,712.82 dollars was transferred to the account of Rosemont Seneca, which represented Hunter Biden.

Report: Justice Department Has Been ‘Quietly’ Reviewing Ukraine Materials For Several Weeks, Separate From Durham Probe

According to CBS News’ sources, Department of Justice officials, at the direction of Attorney General William Barr, have been “quietly” reviewing over the past “several weeks” records and documents related to the “Ukraine matter,” including documents provided by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Citing a source familiar with the matter, CBS News’ Catherine Herridge and Clare Hymes reported Tuesday that “staff outside of Main Justice in Washington have been assigned by Attorney General William Barr to review the Ukraine matter, adding that the review is being handled by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Pittsburgh and is separate from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe into the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe.”

Among the materials reportedly being reviewed by Justice Department officials at Barr’s behest are some provided by Giuliani, who was specifically mentioned by President Trump in his famous July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and who appears to have served as point man for the pursuit of investigations into allegations of corruption involving former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.

Herridge and Hymes note that that investigation also “goes beyond” matters related to the Bidens, according to the source.

In the call which sparked the Democrats’ impeachment campaign, President Trump asked Zelensky to “look into” the allegations involving the Bidens and Burisma. After a whistleblower complaint accused Trump of attempting to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political rival, Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry resulting in two articles of impeachment, which passed in the House but for which Trump was acquitted by the Senate.

As Herridge and Hymes reports, the allegations involving the Bidens and Ukraine “have gained new life” since Trump’s acquittal, with Barr stating Monday that the department has established an “intake process in the field” for material concerning Ukraine.

During the impeachment trial in the Senate, Trump’s lawyers repeatedly brought up the issue of corruption in Ukraine, around which Trump’s request to Zelensky centered. At one point, President Trump’s deputy counsel Patrick Philbin connected the “Ukraine matter” to the whistleblower whose complaint sparked the impeachment.

“If the whistleblower, as is alleged in some public reports, actually did work for then-Vice President Biden on Ukraine issues, exactly what was his role?” asked Philbin. “What was his involvement when issues were raised — we know from testimony that questions were raised — about the potential conflict of interest that the vice president then had when his son was sitting on the board of Burisma. Was the alleged whistleblower involved in any of that and in making decisions to not do anything related to that? Did he have some reason to want to put the deep-six on any question raising any issue about what went on with the Bidens and Burisma and firing Shokin and withholding a billion dollars in loan guarantees and enforcing a very explicit quid pro quo — you won’t get this billion dollars until you fire him? We don’t know. And because Manager [Rep. Adam] Schiff was guiding this whole process, because he was the chairman in charge of directing the inquiry and directing it away from any of those questions, that creates a real due process defect in the record that has been presented here.”

Real Investigation Seeks Hunter Biden’s Records

Hunter Biden, Financials, TeamKJ, KevinJackson

The worm is turning and soon will have turned. And many within Obama’s non-scandalous administration will find themselves embroiled in scandal.

Bragging rights notwithstanding, these scoundrels at least and traitors at most, are part of Obama’s cabal in one form or another.
And although most of the swamp rats in question worked directly for Obama, there remains questions about a “satellite”, and the son of the former Vice President, namely Hunter Biden.
He will crack under pressure.

Absolving the president is now out of the way.

Thus, the Senate begins the work on hammering down the true criminals. And they’ve started with some juicy financials.
As Yahoo News explains:

The Treasury Department has complied with Republican senators’ requests for highly sensitive and closely held financial records about Hunter Biden and his associates and has turned over “‘evidence’ of questionable origin” to them, according to a leading Democrat on one of the committees conducting the investigation.

For months, while the impeachment controversy raged, powerful committee chairmen in the Republican-controlled Senate have been quietly but openly pursuing an inquiry into Hunter Biden’s business affairs and Ukrainian officials’ alleged interventions in the 2016 election, the same matters that President Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani unsuccessfully tried to coerce Ukraine’s government to investigate.

Unlike Trump and Giuliani, however, Sens. Charles Grassley, chairman of the Finance Committee; Ron Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee; and Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, have focused their efforts in Washington, seeking to extract politically useful information from agencies of the U.S. government. They’ve issued letters requesting records from Cabinet departments and agencies, including the State Department, the Treasury, the Justice Department, the FBI, the National Archives and the Secret Service.

These guys clearly mean business.

The Real Inquiries

Are you seeing a pattern here? Democrats waste months and millions on phony investigations that fail to yield results. When the dust settled, Republicans fire back with investigations that name real criminals and define true crimes.

Take James Comey for example. He spent three years marching around the country, blaming Trump for his demise. In fact, Comey even wrote a book, in which he claimed to possess a higher loyalty. (He must be counting his affection for the Obamas and the Clintons.) But lo and behold, the Horowitz Report came out and established Comey as the most corrupt leader of the FBI, topping J. Edgar Hoover.

Hunter Biden now faces a similar fate.

Yahoo Continues:

Grassley and Johnson have sought to obtain some of the most sensitive and closely held documents in all of federal law enforcement — highly confidential suspicious activity reports (SARs) filed by financial institutions with FinCEN, an agency of the Treasury that helps to police money laundering.

Now Democrats are sweating bullets. Apparently, they’re afraid these financial might be the iceberg that sinks 2020. Of course, we know Trump doesn’t need help winning the election. At this point, the impeachment farce guaranteed a win. Nevertheless, Democrats are shaking in their shorts over the implications of a Republican-led investigation.

The article points out:

With the Senate impeachment trial concluded and the Democratic primaries in full swing, the efforts of the Republican-led investigation may soon appear at the center of the political stage. The flow of information from the administration to Senate Republicans has prompted concerns among Democrats that any damaging information uncovered may be deployed at a time of maximum political advantage for the Trump campaign.

In other words, Democrats don’t want us to uncover their efforts to cheat on Hillary’s behalf. And they especially want to bury the bizarre tale of the Bidens in the Ukraine. However, if Republicans figure it all out, Democrats are prepared to call a real investigation a form of campaign sabotage.

No matter how it all goes down, Republicans will enjoy #FourMoreYears of #winning. Meanwhile, it’s fair to expect four more years of scheming, courtesy of the left.

Joe Biden Ducks Questions About Conflict of Interest in Ukraine

Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed in an interview set to air Sunday morning that no one had been able to point to anything he had done wrong in Ukraine.

Biden told Manchester, New Hampshire’s WMUR-9:

My case has already been made. There’s not a single solitary person in this administration who said I did anything other than my job. Not anybody in the United States of America that has been involved at all. Not anybody abroad … I did my job, and I did it really well. The problem is here, this is all about Trump’s ability to take the focus off.

Biden’s claim contradicts the testimony of several of the witnesses Democrats themselves called in the House impeachment inquiry.

George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau at the State Department, told the House Intelligence Committee that Biden had an apparent conflict of interest because his son, Hunter Biden, had been appointed to a well-compensated position on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, that was widely perceived to be corrupt.

Kent said that he brought the issue up in 2015: “I raised my concerns [with the vice president’s staff] that I had heard that Hunter Biden was on the board of a company owned by somebody that the U.S. Government had spent money trying to get tens of millions of dollars back and that could create the perception of a conflict of interest.”

He added that the vice president’s office had said that Biden was too busy dealing with the tragic death of his other son, Beau. But nothing was done afterwards, either.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch told the committee that she had been specifically briefed by the Obama administration before her confirmation hearing not to answer questions about Biden’s conflict of interest, but to direct all questions to the vice president’s office, instead.

Reporters had first raised the question of Biden’s apparent conflict of interest in 2014, after Hunter Biden’s appointment, but nothing was apparently done about it.

Biden himself admitted last week that the arrangement “looked bad.”

The full interview airs Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. on WMUR-9.

Hunter Biden must appear in court after missing deadline in child support case


Written By Elizabeth Rosner and Tamar Lapin | January 21, 2020 | 10:09pm

URL of the original posting site: https://pagesix.com/2020/01/21/hunter-biden-must-appear-in-court-after-missing-deadline-in-child-support-case/

The son of former Vice President Joe Biden missed the Jan. 16 deadline to provide discovery, including financial disclosures, in the case brought by a former stripper with whom he has a 17-month-old, according to court documents filed Tuesday.

Lawyers for 28-year-old Lunden Alexis Roberts — who, as The Post exclusively revealed in November, was a stripper at a Washington, DC, club Biden once frequented — said he failed to submit a slew of discovery materials, including his phone number, address and the address of his 32-year-old wife Melissa Cohen Biden, with whom he is expecting his fifth child.

He also allegedly didn’t hand in a copy of his 2017 and 2018 tax returns, a list of the companies he owns, a list of all his sources of income and other financial documents.

Biden, 49, must come to Independence County Circuit Court on Jan. 29 and “show cause, if any exists, as to why he should not be held in contempt for any of the alleged violations of this court’s orders,” Judge Holly Meyer ordered. Biden has missed two previous court dates.

Earlier this month, the judge officially deemed Biden “the biological and legal father,” of Roberts’ baby and ordered for him to be officially recorded as the dad on the kid’s birth certificate. Biden initially denied paternity in the case until a DNA test proved he was the baby’s dad, according to court papers. The parents are now sparring over child support.

“The defendant continues to act as though he has no respect for this court and its orders … or the needs of his child for support,” Ronberts’ attorneys wrote.

The judge has granted a request for a protective order by Biden’s attorney that would keep their client’s financial situation under wraps. Biden’s lawyer, Brett Langdon, didn’t immediately respond to an email, but previously told The Post that he does not comment on pending cases.

BOMBSHELL: Book to Reveal How Biden Family Siphoned ‘Millions in Taxpayer Cash’—Hunter Biden Just the ‘Tip of the Iceberg’

A forthcoming bombshell book from publishing giant HarperCollins will reveal how five members of Joe Biden’s family—the “Biden Five”—siphoned tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer cash and guaranteed loans. And the recent scandals involving Joe and Hunter Biden, Ukraine, and Burisma are just “the tip of the iceberg,” say sources close to the publisher.

The upcoming book, Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite, is the latest investigative work from Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer.

Publisher HarperCollins has the book under a strict embargo until its January 21 release. Sources with knowledge of its contents say the book will “upend official Washington,” similar to the way Schweizer’s past works like Clinton Cash and Secret Empires did when he broke the Uranium One and Biden-Burisma scandals.

Beyond the Biden revelations, Profiles in Corruption also contains chapters with breaking news on top progressive luminaries, including: Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, Kamala Harris, Sherrod Brown, Eric Garcetti, and Cory Booker.

In a statement to Axios’s Mike Allen, the author described the book as “a sweeping, detailed look at how the leading figures of progressivism have leveraged the power of their positions.” The book reportedly took a year and a half to research.

Amazon’s pre-sale book description of Profiles in Corruption states: “Washington insiders operate by a proven credo: when a Peter Schweizer book drops, duck and brace for impact.”
