Daming Evidence Shows FBI Ignored Tip in 2017 About Biden Bribery Scheme

OPINION | This article contains the author's opinion.

Republicans say the FBI received a credible tip in 2017 from a “well-placed and credible source,” but chose to bury it. As a result, the alleged crimes of the Biden family were successfully hidden from the American people.

Republican James Comer, who serves as the House Oversight Chair, confirmed the troubling reality of politicization and corruption occurring within the FBI.

A “highly credible” FBI informant provided reliable intelligence that then-Vice President Joe Biden accepted a $5 million bribe from a Ukrainian oligarch.

This tip was provided in June of 2020, prior to the presidential cycle that put Biden in the White House. This reliable confidential human source has been working with the FBI since 2010 and has been paid approximately $200,000 by the bureau.

A Ukrainian businessman, whose name has been “redacted” or hidden, hired Hunter Biden at Burisma Holdings, which profited the Biden family millions of dollars.

Americans have learned that the FBI informant was referring to the founder of Ukrainian energy company Bursima, Mykola Zlochevsky. Zlochevsky allegedly paid Joe Biden and Hunter while keeping 17 audio recordings of his conversations with them as an “insurance policy.”

When asked about the Ukrainian businessman, Republican James Comer (R-KY) said, “I probably better punt on that question. The name was redacted.”

Most notably, Hunter has no job qualifications to work for a Ukrainian gas company, no experience in the energy sector, and no personal or professional ties to Ukraine. This naturally leads to a critical question: What service could Hunter Biden have possibly provided to the foreign nation in exchange for millions?

Americans have become very suspicious that the Biden family has been peddling corrupt political influence within the U.S. in exchange for bribes.

According to subpoenaed bank records, a total of nine Biden family members received cash from foreign agents, including President Biden’s grandchildren. The FBI refused to hand over the information until Republicans regained control of Congress and subpoenaed the document.

The source refers to then-Vice President Joe Biden as “the Big Guy. The Burisma executive “didn’t pay the Big Guy directly.” The money was funneled to the Biden family through a web of LLCs and individuals.

When Biden was vice president, he admitted to pressuring Ukraine to fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin. At the time, Shokin was investigating Burisma Holdings.

Then-Vice President Biden publicly explained his conversation with then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. “I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in,’ I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden told Poroshenko.

“Well, son of a b***h, he got fired,” Biden said. “And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”

By replacing Shokin with someone “solid,” Biden is referring to someone who will not investigate the his family’s political corruption and bribery scheme at Burisma.

The confidential source said the Burisma executive paid “$5 million for one Biden, $5 million for the other Biden.” Tge $5 million payments appeared to reference a kind of “retainer” Burisma intended to pay the Bidens to deal with a number of issues, including the investigation led by Shokin.

The FBI informant alleged the Burisma executive paid the Bidens in such a manner “through so many different bank accounts” that investigators would not be able to “unravel this for at least 10 years.” Another source referred to the arrangement as a “pay-to-play” scheme.
