Explosive new allegations have emerged claiming that President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, were paid $10 million in bribes by Ukraine during Biden’s tenure as Vice President. The allegations are contained in a document that the FBI reportedly has had in its possession since 2017, according to sources who spoke with Fox News Digital.
The House Oversight Committee is conducting an investigation into these allegations as part of its review of the document known as a 1023 form. The FBI Director has allowed the Committee to review this document, which is dated June 30, 2020, and includes footnotes referencing communications with a confidential informant over several years. According to the FBI, this informant was considered one of the most highly paid, respected, trusted, and effective human informants.
Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, revealed in an interview with Fox News correspondent Kevin Corke, that the document includes information dating back to 2017, and allegedly shows the Biden family using multiple banks and shell companies to launder money from foreign nationals. Comer described the alleged actions as “consistent with organized crime,” including racketeering, money laundering, and bribery.
The document alleges that a confidential informant had multiple meetings and conversations with a top executive at Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company where Hunter Biden was employed. The informant is said to have reported these conversations to the FBI in June 2020. It is alleged that Burisma paid the Biden family to secure assistance in removing a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating the company for corruption. The payments were reportedly divided equally between Joe and Hunter Biden and were made through numerous bank accounts in a complicated manner designed to elude investigators.
The document also suggests a similarity between this alleged payment method and how the Bidens were purportedly paid by Chinese interests, hinting at money laundering through a labyrinth of LLCs. Chairman Comer mentioned that the Oversight Committee has been tracking funds and found money from China and Romania, with investigations into funds from Ukraine still underway. He believes the amount of money involved could be upwards of $10 million and possibly more than $20 million.
The Oversight Committee’s investigation also raises questions about the handling of this information by the FBI. According to Chairman Comer, the FBI has had the document since 2017 but never conducted a full investigation into it. Comer criticized the FBI’s handling of the case, alleging discrepancies in how they treat different political figures and mentioned that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has not been particularly cooperative in providing additional documents and information requested by the Committee.
When President Joe Biden was asked about these bribery allegations during a press conference, he jokingly asked, “Where’s the money?”, before dismissing the allegations as “a bunch of malarkey.” His office has yet to release an official statement regarding these allegations.
The revelations come at a critical time of high political tensions. On the same day that members of the House were shown the controversial document, news broke of the indictment of former President Donald Trump. A Republican congressman has questioned the timing, suggesting a potential diversion.
The allegations, if proven, could be grounds for impeachment under Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution, which states that a president may be impeached for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
As of now, these allegations are yet to be independently verified, and further investigation and scrutiny are expected in the coming days and weeks.
