According to shocking new allegations released in an unclassified FBI document made public on Thursday by Sen. Chuck Grassley, Joe Biden and Hunter Biden allegedly “coerced” Burisma CEO Mykola Zlochevsky to pay them millions of dollars in exchange for their assistance in getting the Ukrainian prosecutor looking into the company fired.
Grassley stated that he made the paper public in order for the American people to “read this document for themselves without the filter of politicians or bureaucrats.”
The memo discusses an alleged illegal bribery plan involving the then-Vice President Biden and a Ukrainian business tycoon.
According to the Senator’s office, the relevant document is an FBI-created FD-1023 form that Grassley, R-Iowa, obtained through constitutionally authorized disclosures by Justice Department whistleblowers.
The FBI’s interview with a “highly credible” confidential source, who described numerous meetings and conversations with a top executive of Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings over the course of several years beginning in 2015, is reflected in that FD-1023, a confidential human source reporting document.
At the time, Hunter Biden was a member of the Burisma board.
The unclassified document, which is dated June 30, 2020, states that the source interaction was “telephonic.”
In a statement accompanying the document’s release GOP Senator Chuck Grassley posed the question: “What did the Justice Department and FBI do with the detailed information in the document? And why have they tried to conceal it from Congress and the American people for so long?”
