The FD-1023 form finally handed over to the House Oversight Committee allegedly confirms that Joe Biden was paid at least $5 million by a Ukrainian business executive in exchange for the then-Vice President actively changing U.S. foreign policy.
As reported by Fox News, the official informant complaint was at last given to the committee on the request of Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) after he threatened to hold FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress. The form, filed after an interview with the informant on June 30th, 2020, reveals that the payment came from an executive with Burisma Holdings, the shady Ukrainian energy company that infamously hired Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, for a position on the board.
The informant involved is a “highly credible” source who had been used for numerous other FBI investigations dating back to the Obama Administration. The informant also said that such complaints about Biden’s involvement in the bribery scheme had been made to the bureau twice before prior to the filing of the 1023 form.
According to the document, the Burisma executive in question sought “advice on the best way to go forward” in 2015 and 2016, specifically with regards to gaining access to U.S. oil rights and working with an American oil company. When the informant asked why the executive needed their advice when Hunter Biden, the son of the sitting Vice President, was already on the board, the executive simply described Hunter as “dumb.”
The executive then admitted that Burisma had to “pay the Bidens” due to the then-ongoing investigation into Burisma by Ukraine’s Prosecutor-General Viktor Shokin. When the informant suggested that the executive should pay the Bidens “$50,000 each,” the executive replied “not $50,000…$5 million for one Biden, $5 million for the other Biden.”
The document also confirms that previous ambiguous references to “the Big Guy” in correspondence between Hunter and his business partners was, in fact, a reference to Joe Biden.
Hunter’s time with Burisma, as well as the sudden firing of Shokin by then-President Petro Poroshenko, is the heart of the numerous claims of corruption against Joe Biden and his family. Biden later publicly admitted that he played a role in forcing Poroshenko to fire Shokin, threatening to withhold $1 billion in American foreign aid to Ukraine unless the prosecutor was fired, thus effectively ending his corruption investigation into Burisma.
