Hunter Exposed For His Role In Planning to Shut Down Burisma Investigation

The Hunter Biden laptop is a gift that keeps on giving. In the latest laptop email revelation, Hunter Biden is clearly implicated in a scheme to take out Viktor Shokin, specifically because the Ukrainian prosecutor general was getting dangerously close to unveiling corruption during his investigation into Burisma. 

But it wasn’t the first time Hunter bailed out the company. 

On May 12, 2014, Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive at the company, sent an email to Hunter from his personal Gmail account. In this email, he cautioned that Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of the firm, was potentially facing a criminal investigation in Ukraine.  

Zlochevsky was already under investigation for money laundering by the FBI and British intelligence agencies. The investigation revolved around accusations that he had granted highly profitable gas contracts to his own companies while holding the position of Ukraine’s environment minister and had secretly moved $23 million to overseas accounts. 

Pozharskyi’s email was sent just a day before Hunter’s appointment to the Burisma board. “We urgently need your advice on how you could use your influence to convey a message/signal, etc., to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions,” Pozharskyi wrote, adding that Burisma was being blackmailed.  

Hunter engaged a colleague from his former law firm, Boies, Schiller, & Flexner, to formulate a response strategy for Burisma. He also provided counsel on gathering ‘intelligence’ regarding new personnel at the Prosecutor General’s office through the investigative agency Nardello & Co. because he thought It would be helpful to find out who was being considered for those posts. 

Zlochevsky had allegedly paid a $7 million bribe to Ukrainian justice officials in December 2014 to obstruct the US-UK investigation. 

However, with Shokin assuming the position of the new Prosecutor General in 2015, Burisma came under renewed scrutiny, prompting the company to seek assistance once again from Hunter. 

Shokin initiated fresh investigations targeting the gas company, began legal proceedings against a member of his team for alleged interference in Zlochevsky’s money laundering case, and successfully secured a temporary freeze on the assets of the Ukrainian oligarch. 

Hunter connected Burisma with the Washington DC consultancy Blue Star Strategies, which was managed by former Clinton officials Sally Painter and Karen Tramontano. Pozharskyi sent Hunter an email stating that he needed Blue Star Strategies ‘to “close down” any Ukrainian investigation into Zlochevsky.  

Pozharskyi was initially reluctant to sign on with Blue Sky Strategies because he didn’t think the company would lobby American diplomats, a move that would have forced the company to register as a foreign agent with the U.S. Justice Department. Hunter assured him that Blue Star Strategies was ready to move forward with lobbying activities but didn’t want to put it in writing. 

In a November 5, 2015 email, Hunter assured Pozharskyi. “Devon and I do feel comfortable with BS and the ability of Sally & Karen to deliver.”  Pozharskyi then signed on with Blue Star Strategies, who began lobbying State Department Officials for Burisma. 

According to former Biden aides, for just over a week prior to Shokin’s March 2016 ouster, then-Vice President Biden called then-Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko four times to double down on his threat to withhold $1 billion if Shokin was not fired.  

In an interview with FoxNews, Shokin revealed that he was fired by Poroshenko “at the insistence of the then-Vice President Biden” because he was “investigating Burisma.” He went on to clarify that the elder Biden was not attempting to tackle corruption, as he claimed to Americans, but to help Burisma for the sake of the former vice president’s son.  

At this point, Hunter is on his own. The push by the mainstream media is no longer about covering up Hunter’s criminal plots and schemes. Instead, the focus is on separating President Biden from his son’s business dealings by denouncing the entire investigation. 

Biden’s defense has noticeably been shifting as more incriminating evidence is uncovered. Critics noted that “I had no knowledge of my son’s business dealings” became “I had no communication with my son about his business dealings,” and currently stands at “I was not in business with my son.” 

Expect the narrative to shift more over the upcoming months as the treasure trove of laptop goodies reveals more incriminating evidence of Biden’s corruption. So far, only a fraction of the estimated 128,700 emails have been uncovered, and it promises to only get better from here.
