RELEASED: Explosive FBI document detailing alleged $10 million Biden bribery scheme: Burisma CEO said Hunter was ‘stupid’ but needed to be kept on board because ‘his father’ could ‘protect’ them from ‘trouble’
- Included in the sentencing form is the claim that “it costs 5 (million) to pay one Biden and 5 (million) to pay another Biden.”
- The payments were allegedly made in exchange for influencing the then-Vice President to get a high-ranking Ukrainian prosecutor fired.
- Even though Hunter ‘was stupid’ and the CEO’s dog was smarter, they needed him on the board ‘to make things right’
A highly anticipated internal FBI document, obtained by DailyMail.com, includes explosive claims that Joe Biden and his son Hunter forced a Ukrainian oil executive to pay them $10 million in exchange for the then-Vice President’s influence to get them to fire a top prosecutor.
According to a conversation between a confidential source and Burisma’s CFO Vadim Pojarski in 2015, Hunter Biden was hired on the company’s board to ‘protect us, through his dad, from all sorts of trouble.’
Burisma CEO Mykola Zlochevsky told the source: “It costs 5 (million) to pay one Biden and 5 (million) to pay another Biden.”
Zlochevsky added that while Hunter “was stupid” and his (Zlochevsky’s) dog was smarter, they needed him on the board “to make everything okay.”
The FD-1023 form details a total “agreement” of $10 million for a policy money exchange between then-Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and a Ukrainian oil executive.
According to the successful form FD-1023, part of which is redacted, Confidential Human Source (CHS) met with Burisma’s senior executives between 2015 and 2016.
Burisma was looking to spend up to $30 million on a US-based oil and gas company. However, at the time, it was also the subject of a criminal investigation by Ukrainian Attorney General Viktor Shokin, which the firm knew would “have a substantial negative impact on Burisma’s potential US listing.”
When asked about the investigation, the form says Zlochevsky replied: “Don’t worry, Hunter will take care of all those problems through his father.”
Later, then-Vice President Joe Biden made a public statement that Shokin was “corrupt and should be fired/removed from office.”
The sentencing form also reveals:
- ZIochevsky ‘did not want to pay the Bidens and says he was ‘pressured to pay them’.
- Asked if Hunter or Joe told him to keep Hunter on the board, Zlochevsky replied: “They both did.”
- The source asked why Burisma didn’t just “pay $50,000 to a lawyer” to fight Shokin’s investigation in Ukraine, to which Zlochevsky replied that “he/Burisma would probably lose the lawsuit because he couldn’t prove Burisma was innocent.”
- When asked how he would ‘explain suspicious wire transfers’, he replied that he ‘did not send any funds directly to ‘Big One’ (which CHS understood to be a reference to Joe Biden)’.
- He added that it would take “10 years to find the records (ie illicit payments to Joe Biden).”
- In a follow-up call, Zlochevsky bragged that Shokin had been fired, that there was no longer an investigation into Burisma, and that “no one would find out about his financial dealings with the Bidens.”
- He added that, in support of his claims, “he has many text messages and a total of 17 ‘recordings’ showing that he was coerced into making the payments.”
DailyMail.com previously reported that the 17 audio recordings of phone calls – two from Joe Biden and 15 from Hunter Biden – were kept as an “insurance policy”.
FBI Form FD-1023 was created on June 30, 2020 based on information from a highly paid informant and brought to the attention of Republicans by a whistleblower.
Senator Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, obtained and released the document after months of back and forth between the top Republican and the FBI through “legally protected disclosures” by Department of Justice (DOJ) whistleblowers.
The document contains a limited number of redactions to protect the confidential human source, handling agents, names of Justice Department whistleblowers and references to connect ongoing investigations, according to a Senate aide.
“For the better part of a year, I have been pressing the Department of Justice and the FBI to provide details about their handling of very significant allegations by a trusted FBI informant implicating then-Vice President Biden in a criminal bribery scheme,” Grassley said in a statement.
“While the FBI tried to obfuscate and redact, the American people can now read this document for themselves, unfiltered by politicians or bureaucrats, thanks to brave and heroic whistleblowers.”
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., added that the FBI memo “closely follows the evidence uncovered by the Oversight Committee’s Biden family influence-peddling investigation.”
‘In the FBI record, the Burisma executive claims he did not pay the ‘big guy’ directly, but used various bank accounts to hide the money. That sounds a lot like the Bidens’ way of doing business: using multiple bank accounts to hide the source and total amount of money.
Republicans expressed their continued commitment to uncovering the truth about the Biden family’s business plan.
