Sen. Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, released a previously confidential FBI document on Thursday that presents allegations of a massive multimillion-dollar bribery scheme that includes President Joe Biden, his younger son Hunter Biden, and Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company. Guys, this is a huge piece of evidence that the president, while serving as vice president under Barack Obama, was involved in an influence peddling scheme to trade political favors for big time payments from foreign entities in a horrific abuse of power.
The FD-1023 form alleging then-Vice President JOE BIDEN was involved in a $5,000,000 bribery scheme with a Burisma executive has been released by @ChuckGrassley.

The form in question was dated for June 30, 2020, and cited a “confidential human source” who went on to describe how the Biden family used their influence to pull gangster style tactics and shakedown Burisma.
Here’s more from the report:
Hunter Biden sat on the board of Burisma beginning in 2014 in spite of the fact he had no previous work experience in the oil and gas sector. Per an FBI source, he was viewed as “stupid” but was kept on the board because his father was vice president and the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine at the time.
Burisma owner Mykola Zlochevsky allegedly told the FBI informant at a 2016 meeting in Austria that “it cost 5 [million] to pay one Biden, and 5 [million] to another Biden,” according to the FD-1023 form. The comments, per the confidential source, were made in relation to Burisma’s then-plans to buy an energy company in the United States.
“Zlochevsky made some comment that although Hunter Biden ‘was stupid, and his (Zlochevsky’s) dog was smarter,’ Zlochevsky needed to keep Hunter Biden (on Burisma’s board) ‘so everything will be okay,’” the document went on to say.
The main source for the FBI inquired at one time whether Hunter Biden or his father spoke with Zlochevsky and informed him that he should “retain” Hunter as a member of the board for the company.
He replied, “They both did.”
The document then reveals that in 2017, “Zlochevsky said he ‘was not happy Trump won the election’ and that he was ‘concerned about Burisma’s involvement with the Bidens.’”
The document also quotes the owner of the company as stating that he “didn’t want to pay the Bidens and he was ‘pushed to pay’ them.’”
When Zlochevsky was then asked about allegedly making payments to the Bidens, he used Russian slang that basically translated into his being forced or coerced to pay the family.
“The document also touched on the dismissal of former Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma for alleged corruption when he was sacked,” The Western Journal said.
We also discover through the document that Zlochevsky had zero interest, initially, in dealing with the Bidens and would have preferred “‘some normal [American] oil and gas advisors’ because the Bidens have no experience with that business sector.” The owner revealed that he was worried because the company was being investigated and he was concerned no sale would be able to go through.
“CHS reiterated CHS’s opinion that Zlochevsky was making a mistake and he should fire Hunter Biden and deal with Shokin’s investigation directly so that the matter will remain an issue in Ukraine, and not tum into some international matter,” the FBI FD-1023 stated. “Zlochevsky responded something to the effect of, ‘Don’t worry, this thing will go away.’”
The source then informed the bureau that he advised Zlochevsky to sever all ties with the Biden family.
“Zlochevsky responded that he appreciated CHS’s advice, but that ‘it’s too late to change his decision,’” the document stated. “CHS understood this to mean that Zlochevsky had already had paid the Bidens, presumably to ‘deal with Shokin.’”
What’s really gross is that Biden himself, the former vice-president and current commander-in-chief, once bragged about threatening to withhold aid from Ukraine unless a prosecutor there was given his pink slip.
Grassley took an opportunity on Thursday to verbally pummel the DOJ and FBI in a statement for not releasing the document for so long.
“What did the Justice Department and FBI do with the detailed information in the document?” the senator went on to ask. “And why have they tried to conceal it from Congress and the American people for so long?”
He then added, “The Justice Department and FBI have failed to come clean.”
The senator then promised there would be a thorough investigation into the claims that were made by the informant.
