AUDIO: Joe Biden Caught Pressuring Former Ukrainian President to Fire Prosecutor Investigating His Son
Explosive audio has been released of former Vice President Joe Biden admitting he pressured former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Biden’s son, Hunter, for his shady business deals with gas company Burisma Holdings.
The audio released by Interfax can be heard in the video of this press release:
The exchange between Biden and Poroshenko, translated into English by Creative Destruction Media, can be seen here:
Joe Biden: (10:20 mark) I am prepared to a public signing for a commitment for a billion dollars. Again I am not suggesting you want it or don’t want it. I am suggesting
Joe Biden — (14:30 minute mark from November 2016 call) Congratulations in getting the new Prosecutor General. I know there’s a lot more to that. I really think that’s good. It is going to be critical that he works to repair the damage of Shokin. I’m a man of my word. Now that the new prosecutor general is in place we’re ready to move forward to signing the one billion dollar loan guarantee. And I don’t know how you want to go about that… I’ll leave it to you to how you want it done and where you want it done.
There is also a clip from the audio in which Biden mentions President Donald Trump, who was merely running for the office of the presidency at the time.
“We will help you get the vote… Let me ask you one thing before I forget, Privatbank… This is getting very, very close. What I don’t want to have happen. I don’t want Trump to get into *** where he thinks he’s about to buy into a situation… where it is about to collapse where he is going to pour more money into Ukraine… So anything you can do to push the Privatbank to closure so that the IMF loan comes forward I stress this is critical to your economic and national security,” Biden said.
This confirms what Biden had admitted to publicly during a meeting with the ultra-globalist Council on Foreign Relations.
Joe Biden brags about how he threatened to pull $1 billion in loan guarantees from Ukraine if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

Shokin has attested in a sworn affidavit that he was looking into Burisma holdings, the Ukrainian gas company that put Biden’s son Hunter on the board with a $50,000 monthly salary despite having no experience in the industry as well as his history as an unstable drug addict:
It was revealed on Thursday that former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin once testified under oath that he was fired from his position at the behest of Vice President Joe Biden for investigating Burisma Holdings and the gas company’s relationship with Biden’s son, Hunter.
Journalist John Solomon at The Hill obtained a sworn affidavit containing Shokin’s witness statement that was prepared for European court. In the document, Shokin claims he was told that the reason he was fired was due to Biden’s objections to his investigation over Burisma.
“The truth is that I was forced out because I was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into Burisma Holdings, a natural gas firm active in Ukraine and Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was a member of the Board of Directors,” Shokin testified…
Shokin’s testimony essentially validates Biden’s recollection of events.
“On several occasions President Poroshenko asked me to have a look at the case against Burisma and consider the possibility of winding down the investigative actions in respect of this company but I refused to close this investigation,” Shokin testified.
Solomon also pointed to documents he obtained from Burisma’s team of lawyers in America to back up Shokin’s testimony.
This audio does not bode well for Biden, who may be behind bars before he can have a chance to win the presidency in November.
