Joe Biden is in hot water after a secret memo exposed the truth about his bribery scandal
Joe Biden’s story about his family’s involvement in Ukraine is collapsing.
He was hoping that this damning piece of evidence would never be revealed.
But Joe Biden is in hot water after a secret memo exposed the truth about his bribery scandal.
Ukrainian anti-corruption prosecutor Viktor Shokin is at the center of the criminal bribery scheme by President Joe Biden that was outlined in the FBI’s FD-1023 form.
Then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were allegedly bribed $5 million each by the CEO of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma to get Shokin fired.
Shokin was investigating Burisma for corruption at the same time Hunter Biden served on the company’s board despite having no experience in the energy industry.
Then-Vice President Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees to get Shokin fired.
Biden claimed that Shokin was fired because he wasn’t aggressive enough about rooting out corruption.
An internal memo from the European Union (EU) revealed that Shokin’s office had met its targets for prosecuting corruption, human trafficking, and organized crime only one week after Biden began pressuring Ukraine to fire him.
The European Commission, a body of the EU Parliament, issued a memo on December 18, 2015, that said the Commission was happy with the “noteworthy” advancements that Ukraine made, including “preventing and fighting corruption.”
The memo pointed out that Shokin had appointed the chief of a new anti-corruption prosecution unit that was called “an indispensable component of an effective and independent institutional framework for combating high-level corruption.”
The European Commission urged the Ukrainian government to ensure that the unit was operational during the first quarter of 2016.
Shokin was fired by former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on March 29, 2016, after the pressure campaign by then-Vice President Biden.
“Based on these commitments, the anti-corruption benchmark is deemed to have been achieved,” the European Commission report stated. “The progress noted in the fifth report on anti-corruption policies, particularly the legislative and institutional progress, has continued.”
On the same day, the memo was issued, the EU Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship made a statement praising Shokin and Ukrainian officials for making “enormous progress” on reforms.
“I congratulate the Ukrainian leadership on the progress made towards completing the reform process which will bring important benefits to the citizens of Ukraine in the future,” then-EU Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos said. “The hard work towards achieving this significant goal has paid off. Now it is important to keep upholding all the standards.”
Biden bragged in 2018 about having Shokin fired at a Council on Foreign Relations event.
“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 said. “Well, son of a b***h. He got fired.”
The EU was pleased with the work that Shokin’s office was doing in fighting corruption.
This fact destroys the cover story used by Joe Biden to explain away his pressure campaign to have Viktor Shokin fired.
