LEAKED BIDEN UKRAINE PHONE CALL: Phone Calls Between Joe Biden And Ukraine’s President Poroshenko Leaked; Details $1 Billion “Quid Pro Quo” To Fire Burisma Prosecutor.
Last year Joe Biden bragged about how he coerced Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor Victor Shokin by threatening that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees from them.
While this type of interference in a foreign government by the then-Vice President of the United States is highly inappropriate in itself, what makes it even worse is that the prosecutor he got fired was probing a firm for which his son Hunter Biden worked.
Today an audiotape has been released by a Ukrainian politician which details conversations between corrupt and discredited former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden. John Kerry is also on the audio tape. The men discuss the firing of then Prosecutor Shokin for corrupt reasons, in order to prevent an investigation into Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and other criminal actions.
People’s deputy Andrei Derkach presented a real “cassette scandal.”
Biden puts pressure on Poroshenko to fire Shokin.
Poroshenko said that he blocked the resignation of Yatsenyuk on February 16, 2016 at the personal direction of Biden.
On both points, according to Derkach, there is an obvious corpus delicti under the article “treason” (in fact, Poroshenko complied with the instructions of the leadership of a foreign state).
