The long-delayed and greatly anticipated report on Hunter Biden’s history of corruption in Ukraine was finally released on Wednesday. A majority of Americans knew he benefited from the Biden name, but few knew the real extent of the corruption and its cover-up by the Obama administration until now.
The chairs of the report, Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), wrote:
On April 16, 2014, Vice President Biden met with his son’s business partner, Devon Archer, at the White House. Five days later, Vice President Biden visited Ukraine, and he soon after was described in the press as the “public face of the administration’s handling of Ukraine.”
The day after his visit, on April 22, Archer joined the board of Burisma….
On May 12, Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma, and over the course of the next several years, Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were paid millions of dollars from a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch for their participation on the board.
When that “oligarch,” Mykola Zlochevsky, owner of Burisma, paid a bribe to release some $23 million that had been seized by the British government over charges of his corruption, Hunter Biden had been on the board for seven months.
When Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, George Kent, learned about the bribe, he “raised concerns to officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board.” His concerns were ignored.
