Intercept: Is a Ukrainian Oligarch Helping Trump Smear Biden to Evade US Corruption Charges?

THE CONSPIRACY TO REELECT THE PRESIDENT by misleading the American people about Joe Biden’s work in Ukraine continues, despite the impeachment inquiry triggered by revelations that Donald Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, tried to coerce Ukraine’s government into investigating the former vice president.

Trump’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, openly admitted on Thursday that Trump withheld military aid to Ukraine to press Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open investigations requested by the White House.

The latest phase of the disinformation campaign has focused on what Giuliani calls crucial new evidence: an affidavit from the Ukrainian prosecutor Biden got fired in 2016. But the sudden appearance of this sworn statement, six months after Giuliani and his allies began claiming that Biden had acted with corrupt intent to get that prosecutor removed, raises questions about who orchestrated the filing of that affidavit and how the effort to smear Biden might be related to a Ukrainian billionaire’s fight against extradition to the United States to face bribery charges.

In fact, there is no evidence that such a probe ever existed. Shokin was forced to resign following complaints from international donors to Ukraine, and Ukrainian anti-corruption activists, that he had failed to pursue cases against corrupt former officials — including the owner of the gas company that employed Hunter Biden. By threatening to withhold U.S. aid unless Shokin was removed, Joe Biden had, in fact, made it more likely that his son’s employer would be prosecuted for corruption, not less likely.

  1. This impeachment is a joke, Trump asked for Israel and the diaspora interfere in the 2016 elections, committed trrason in the name of his Neanderthal tribe hundreds of times and an endless list of crimes, but they keep masturbating this distraction and use it as a weak argument for the impeachment.

  2. So he allegedly withheld funds because they aren’t investigating Joe’s sleaze bag corrupt scum son who has been on the take in Ukraine. Er….okay.

  3. Ukrainian oligarch or not, what exactly were Hunter Biden’s qualifications to sit on Burisma Holdings’ board, while his father was sitting VP? From this perspective, what difference does it make, when there’s corruption everywhere?
