The dominos keep tumbling for Biden and Co. as the former vice president is now the source of a brand new criminal complaint by the former top Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin.
According to the official complaint sent to Ukraine’s State Bureau of Investigations, Shokin asked that the Democratic presidential frontrunner be charged with “interference with the activities of a law enforcement officer.”
The prosecutor wrote that the SBI should immediately begin a “pre-trial investigation” into the alleged criminal conduct by Biden. Shokin expounded on his claims, writing that Biden used a $1 billion loan from the Obama administration as leverage with which to illegally pressure Ukrainian leaders into ousting him.
At the time, Shokin was investigating Burisma Holdings, along with Hunter Biden’s role on the board, which he sat on for five years.
The Ukrainian prosecutor noted that then-Vice President Biden had repeatedly travelled to Ukraine between 2015 and 2016, claiming the VP was there to have Shokin’s investigation into his Hunter Biden and Burisma stopped.
Shokin argued that “as a result, he curtailed an objective investigation criminal proceedings on the facts of unlawful activities of persons associated with the company Burisma Holdings Limited (Cyprus), including the son of the specified high-ranking official [Biden’s son Hunter, who sat on the company’s board from 2014 till 2019].”
According to RT:
“In a recent interview with ABC News, Shokin said that his office was handling six investigation into Burisma at the time of his resignation. However, ABC kept that part of the interview under wraps – leaving the American public essentially in the dark about the status of the probe.”
Currently President Donald Trump is being impeached over the charge that he demanded Ukrainian President Zelensky investigate potential corruption by Burisma or they’d risk losing their foreign aid.
Should witnesses be called to testify in the senate trial, Republican senators have signaled that Hunter Biden will be one of the first individuals brought to the stand.
