Calls to impeach Democrat President Joe Biden are intensifying significantly after the FBI document detailing allegations of a bribery scheme was made public on Thursday.
As Slay News reported earlier, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released the FBI document, FD-1023, which details how Biden, along with his son, Hunter Biden, allegedly “coerced” a Ukrainian oligarch to pay them millions of dollars in bribes.
The FBI evidence shows that, while Joe Biden was serving as Obama’s vice president, the family was paid millions by Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner and CEO of notorious-corrupt Ukraine energy company Burisma Holdings.
The bribes were allegedly paid in exchange for the Bidens’ help in firing Ukraine’s chief prosecutor who was investigating Zlochevsky and Burisma for fraud.
At the time, Hunter Biden was a board member of Burisma and was being paid tens of thousands of dollars per month in salary, despite having no experience in the energy industry.
The Ukrainian prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, was fired after then-VP Biden withheld $1 billion in U.S. aid from Ukraine and refused to release it until he was terminated.
As the evidence of the bribery scheme mounts, calls for Biden’s impeachment are growing louder.
“Most corrupt family to ever live in the White House! Impeach!” Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) wrote on Twitter.
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-C)) wrote, “Read and understand just how deep the corruption goes.
“Biden should be thrown out of office. Impeach!”
Republican former Arizona gubernatorial candidate and conservative firebrand Kari Lake suggested the president was guilty of “extortion” and “treason” in addition to bribery.
She added that President Donald Trump was impeached for Biden’s “crimes.”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said she believes the United States is backing Ukraine’s war with Russia because President Biden is “compromised.”
“Is this why Biden has America involved in the war in Ukraine???” Greene said.
“Joe Biden is a criminal and is compromised!
“And he is leading us into WW3 [because Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelenskyy has proof of more Biden crimes.”
“Republicans can no longer delay, but we need 218 Republican votes to do it.
“I’ve been there since day one and so are the American people. IMPEACH BIDEN!!!”
Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) also called for Biden’s impeachment prior to the release of the document.
Luna insists that Biden “NEEDS to be impeached” because of the “evidence and testimony” she had seen as a member of the House Oversight Committee investigating the Biden family finances.
“He is compromised and his son is selling access to him,” Luna added.
Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) also argues that Biden is “compromised.”
“This is damning evidence that Biden is compromised,” Fallon said.
“Remember when Democrats and their pals in the media went as far as to question whether this document even exists?”
Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY) declared, “The Biden family corruption saga continues.”
Rep. Lisa McClain (R-MI) vowed the House Oversight Committee would hold Biden accountable.
In a statement about the FBI document’s release, Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO) said, “It causes some great concerns that our president could be compromised to a foreign government.”
Meanwhile, Biden’s White House is pushing back against the calls, claiming, without evidence, that the allegations were “debunked.”
White House spokesman for oversight and investigations Ian Sams said, “It is remarkable that congressional Republicans, in their eagerness to go after President Biden regardless of the truth, continue to push claims that have been debunked for years and that they themselves have cautioned to take ‘with a grain of salt’ because they could be ‘made up.’”
“These claims have reportedly been scrutinized by the Trump Justice Department, a Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney, and a full impeachment trial of the former President that centered on these very issues, and over and over again, they have been found to lack credibility,” he said.
“It’s clear that congressional Republicans are dead-set on playing shameless, dishonest politics and refuse to let truth get in the way,” he added.
“It is well past time for news organizations to hold them to basic levels of factual accountability for their repeated and increasingly desperate efforts to mislead both the public and the press.”
Grassley said he released the document so that the American people can “read this document for themselves without the filter of politicians or bureaucrats.”
The document in question is an FBI-generated FD-1023 form, which Grassley acquired via legally protected disclosures by Justice Department whistleblowers, according to the senator’s office.
That FD-1023 — a confidential human source (CHS) reporting document — reflects the FBI’s interview with a “highly credible” confidential source who detailed multiple meetings and conversations he or she had with a top executive of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings over the course of several years starting in 2015.
Hunter Biden, at the time, sat on the board of Burisma.
The document includes new information, including the identity of the business executive, Burisma CEO Zlochevsky.
It also reveals the allegations that Zlochevsky was “coerced” into paying Joe Biden and Hunter Biden millions of dollars to get a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating his firm fired.
