The Bidens aren’t gonna like this.
Ukrainian Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka just announced that the probe into the founder of Burisma Holdings – the energy firm Hunter Biden was given hundreds of thousands per month for doing God knows what – has been widened to follow up on allegations of embezzlement!
Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky has also gone missing, as Ryaboshapka said that the investigation is on hold until his whereabouts can be located.
Check out the breaking news that hit Twitter:
In light of the Democrat debate Wednesday - the same day the report came out - folks on Twitter asked a crucial question:
Reuters has more details on the widening of the investigation:
Ukraine has widened its investigation into the founder of energy company Burisma to include suspicion of embezzling state funds, Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka said on Wednesday.
Allegations of wrongdoing at Burisma go to the heart of a U.S. impeachment inquiry into whether President Donald Trump improperly pressured Ukraine’s leadership to investigate his main rival in the 2020 presidential race.
Trump wants Ukraine to launch an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who was a board member at Burisma from 2014-2019.
The prosecutor who has investigated Burisma is Kostiantyn Kulyk, who previously met Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to discuss accusations against the Bidens.
After he took office in late August, Ryaboshapka launched a wide-ranging audit of criminal cases to see whether they had been conducted properly. Thirteen of them relate to Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky, Ryaboshapka told reporters at a briefing on Wednesday.
Burisma did not respond to a request for comment.
Ryaboshapka’s predecessors oversaw a series of investigations into Zlochevsky, a multimillionaire former minister of ecology and natural resources. The allegations concern tax violations, money-laundering and licences given to Burisma during the period where Zlochevsky was a minister.
Ryaboshapka said Zlochevsky was now suspected of the “theft of government funds on an especially large scale,” but did not provide evidence or details.
Townhall commented on the news:
Burisma Holdings sure sounds like a corrupt company. Hunter Biden served as a board member of Buirsma Holdings, drawing a lucrative monthly salary from 2014-2019. Biden has no natural energy experience, was discharged from the military for using cocaine, and was seemingly hired only to buy the company influence with Hunter's father, then-Vice President Joe Biden. The move appears to have worked.
Joe Biden proudly recalls the time he flew to Ukraine and bribed the government into firing the prosecutor who was investigating Burisma Holdings. Everything about the Bidens and Burisma smacks of certain corruption, which is why the matter needs to be fully investigated.
