This will likely come as no surprise to Trump supporters, but the man affectionately known within the Democrat party as “Uncle Joe” is anything but an innocent teddy bear. “Overtly corrupt” would be a far more apt descriptive.
The latest bit of dirt to emerge from Biden’s past relates to shady dealings with Ukraine, one of several countries the Biden men have left their stench.
In this piece, we’ll attempt to get a clear picture of what has taken place and what it could mean for the future.
This particular episode of corruption revolves around Sleepy Joe’s son, Hunter Biden. Hunter was a Lieutenant in the Navy, a position he lost as a result of failing a drug test for cocaine. This is quite the feat, considering cocaine only stays detectable in the body for 3 days maximum. For Hunter to pop hot for cocaine on a random test, he would either have to have really rotten luck, or a steady habit.
I’m guessing the latter, as probability theory rarely lets me down.
Hunter hit the ground running, though (as I’m sure coke-heads are apt to do). He was discharged from the Navy in February 2014, then named to the Burisma Holdings board of directors only two months later. Burisma is the largest non-governmental gas producer in Ukraine; founded in 2006 and is based in Limassol, Cyprus – a European tax haven. Hunter’s gig at Burisma —in which he was put in charge of overseeing their legal team— came conveniently after then-VP Joe Biden met with Burisma’s board a month earlier.
Nothing like a direct link to a presidential administration to get a cushy job at a foreign energy company.
Hunter used his status as Burisma’s legal honcho to establish a connection to the American-based law firm to which he also served as an “adviser,” Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, and the shady dealings commended forthwith. According to bank records, Rosemont Seneca received regular transfers into one of its accounts — usually more than $166,000 a month — from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when then-VP Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine and its tense relations with Russia. These payments are believed to have been directed to Hunter and his Rosemont partner, Devon Archer.
Between April 2014 and October 2015, more than $3 million was paid out of Burisma accounts to an account linked to Hunter’s and Archer’s Rosemont Seneca firm, according to the financial records placed in a federal court file in Manhattan in an unrelated case against Archer. Yes, unrelated case, meaning Archer has other shady dealings coming home to roost.
The bank records show that, on most months when Burisma money flowed, two wire transfers of $83,333.33 each were sent to the Rosemont Seneca–connected account on the same day. The same Rosemont Seneca–linked account typically then would pay Hunter Biden one or more payments ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 each. Prosecutors wanted to interview Hunter and Archer about why they had received such payments.
That led Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin to open a file on the Bidens and prepare to get to the bottom of things. As you might imagine, that didn’t sit well with the elder Biden, who wasn’t about to see his son’s cash cow taken out by some uppity law man.
