Hmm. Let’s see. What kind of last-minute stuff was Biden working on when he was packing up to leave the Vice Presidency? https://t.co/Et4gk3ga9j pic.twitter.com/Gvlahk4zkx— FoiaFan (@15poundstogo) January 10, 2023
KIEV (Reuters) JANUARY 12, 2017 – U.S. Vice President Joe Biden will fly to Kiev on Sunday on a farewell visit by one of Ukraine’s strongest political supporters, as the country looks forward with apprehension to the new administration of Donald Trump.
Biden, whose visit was announced by the office of President Petro Poroshenko, has been the front man for U.S. policy towards Ukraine since street protests in 2013-2014 forced a Russian-backed leader to flee and the pro-Western opposition took over, promising sweeping reforms whose delivery has been patchy.
So why was the vice-president taking a last-minute trip to the land of money-laundering and corruption. Poroshenko oversaw a cess-pit. The silent protest against him and his ilk saw the election of Volodymyr Zelensky, a former actor and comedian, who was seen as being relatively clean. Could it be that Zelensky now knows exactly what the deal was?
Ukraine was the setting for the Biden family’s dealings with Burisma, the obscure Ukrainian natural gas company (that had been investigated for corruption) at the heart of the Biden scandal. It has been stated that Poroshenko and Joe Biden together syphoned off billions of dollars.
Hunter never regretted joining the board of Burisma nor introducing his father to a top executive at Burisma:
“I don’t think I made a mistake in taking a spot on that board. I think I made a mistake in terms of underestimating the way it would be used against me,” he said of the $50,000-a-month gig that raised eyebrows and ignited a political firestorm because his dad, President Biden, was serving as vice president in the Obama administration at the time.”Hunter Biden
The Burisma revelations were contained in a series of emails found on a MacBook pro laptop dropped off at a Wilmington, DE computer repair company in April 2019 but never picked up.
