Stunning new information has emerged that reveals former President Barack Obama’s taxpayer-funded White House was sharing internal information with outside actors who had financial interests in America’s foreign affairs.
According to a new report by the Washington Times, then-Vice President Joe Biden’s office was emailing information to the VP’s son regarding Ukraine.
At the time, Hunter Biden was working for notoriously corrupt Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.
Burisma paid Hunter tens of thousands of dollars a month to sit on its board, despite the younger Biden having zero experience in the energy industry.
The company hired Hunter Biden when then-Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Shokin started investigating Burisma and its owner for fraud.
Shortly after Hunter joined Burisma, then-VP Joe Biden pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to fire Shokin.
Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid from Ukraine until Shokin was fired.
“I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars’,” Biden later openly gloated about the conversation.
“I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’
“Well, son of a b*tch. He got fired.”
According to the bombshell new report, Obama’s White House emailed details to Hunter Biden of the vice president’s phone call with Poroshenko regarding Burisma and Shokin’s firing.
Obama’s White House would CC Hunter Biden on emails about these meetings, effectively keeping him in the loop on the government’s talks with Ukraine.
Per the report:
A White House scheduling email sent to then-Vice President Joseph R. Biden ahead of a call with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was also sent to his son Hunter who was serving on the board of a Ukrainian energy firm looking to escape a corruption probe…
The timing of the call, however, coincides with Hunter Biden‘s $1 million-a-year job on the board for Burisma, which allegedly hired him to help dodge charges from the Ukrainian prosecutor general.
VP Joe Biden was pressuring the Ukrainian president to stop investigating a company that was giving his son $1 million a year.
The Obama White House, meanwhile, was apparently keeping Hunter Biden apprised of the efforts to pressure Ukraine.
The White House scheduling email was sent on May 26, 2016, from Mr. Biden‘s assistant, John S. Flynn.
It was disclosed by the National Archives in response to a Freedom of Information Request and mined by an online FOIA sleuth who gave it to The Washington Times.
The scheduling email from Mr. Flynn provided both Mr. Biden and Hunter Biden with the details for the vice president’s upcoming trips to Delaware and Rhode Island as well as the call to Mr. Poroshenko.
“Boss — 8:45 a.m. prep for 9 a.m. phone call with Pres Poroshenko. Then we’re off to Rhode Island for infrastructure event and then Wilmington for UDel commencement. Nate will have your draft remarks delivered later tonight or with your press clips in the morning,” Mr. Flynn wrote to the then-vice president and Hunter Biden.
Mr. Biden’s call to Mr. Poroshenko took place on May 27, 2016.
This latest information has surfaced after FBI whistleblowers recently presented evidence to Congress that Burisma’s president paid Joe and Hunter Biden $5 million each after the prosecutor was fired.
