A recent disclosure suggests that the FBI has confirmed elements of a narrative alleging bribery to members of the Biden family by a Ukrainian energy company. This revelation raises critical questions about the integrity of our political leaders and has the potential to rock the political landscape.
In the epicenter of the allegations is the founder of Burisma Holdings, Mykola Zlochevsky, who had Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, on his board. An FD-1023 form, a document that records unverified allegations, features statements made by a confidential source to the FBI. The source claims Zlochevsky said that retaining Hunter Biden was a suggestion from both Bidens.
The form cites Zlochevsky’s words to the source: “‘It costs 5 (million) to pay one Biden, and 5 (million) to another Biden.'” At the time of the conversation, the source was unclear whether these purported payments were already made. Additionally, the document recounts Zlochevsky predicting a decade-long search for investigators to find illicit payment records to Joe Biden.
According to an individual privy to the briefing, the FBI had corroborated parts of the source’s account, including the verification of the source’s travel records to different locations where interactions with Zlochevsky supposedly occurred. The locations included Kiev, Ukraine, in late 2015 or early 2016, Vienna, Austria in 2016, and London in 2019.
It’s notable that the FBI office involved in this process is tasked with the initial screening of allegations related to Ukraine, and it lacks the authority to delve deeper into the allegations within the FD-1023 form. However, they found the report credible enough to pass on for further investigation by Delaware investigators.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich spoke to Fox News about the mounting evidence, stating, “Every week we get more information. Every week the information corroborates what we’ve already suspected.” According to Gingrich, it’s plausible that direct payments were made to the then-vice president and funneled through Hunter Biden.
Gingrich warns of the implications, saying, “We may have a criminal family sitting in the White House that took money from foreigners in Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Romania, Russia, and China. Now, that’s a pretty sobering comment that has huge national security implications and also it has basic honesty implications.”
These allegations of potential bribery add another layer of complexity to the scrutiny of the Biden family’s interactions with foreign entities. The question that now hangs in the balance is how long the dam will hold before this flood of mounting evidence breaks loose. The narrative, as it unfolds, challenges the tenets of transparency, honesty, and integrity that should be inherent in the highest echelons of our nation’s leadership.
