BOMBSHELL: Ukraine Indicts Burisma Owner, Hunter Biden Implicated For Soaking Up $16.5 Million in Illicit Scheme
Ukrainian MP Alexander Dubinsky announced at a press conference on Wednesday that the Office of the Prosecutor General is indicting Burisma owner Nikolai Zlochevsky, and the consequences could be dire for Hunter Biden.
Dubinsky alleges that Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, and his affiliates received $16.5 million from the Ukrainian gas firm. He claims that this money was transferred to Biden and his associates as apart of a criminal scheme.
“Zlochevsky was charged with this new accusation by the Office of the Prosecutor General but the press ignored it,” Dubinsky said. “It was issued on November 14.”
“The son of Vice-President Joe Biden was receiving payment for his services, with money raised through criminal means and money laundering,” he said, adding that “Biden received money that did not come from the company’s successful operation but rather from money stolen from citizens.”
Dubinsky also believes that Hunter Biden is tied to a criminal network that involves members of the administrations of former Presidents Yanukovich and Poroshenko.
“We will reveal the information about the financial pyramid scheme that was created in Ukraine and developed by everyone beginning with Yanukovich and later by Poroshenko. This system is still working under the guidance of the current managerial board of the National Bank, ensuring that money flows in the interest of people who stole millions of dollars, took it offshore and bought Ukrainian public bonds turning them into the Ukrainian sovereign debt,” Dubinsky said.
“In both cases of Yanukovich and Poroshenko, Ms. Gontareva and companies she controls were investing the stolen funds,” he added.
Ukrainian MP Andriy Derkach announced during the press conference that the indictment also implicates Franklin Templeton investments in laundering over $7 billion in illicit funds from supposed family members of ex-President Yanukovych.
“Last week, November 14, the Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO), unnoticed by the media, announced a new suspicion to the notorious owner of Burisma, ex-Ecology Minister Zlochevsky. According to the suspicion, the Yanukovych family is suspected, in particular, with legalizing (laundering) of criminally obtained income through Franklin Templeton Investments, an investment fund carrying out purchases of external government loan bonds totaling $7.4 billion,” said Derkach, who alleges that illicit money was obtained illegally between 2013 and 2014.
The dubious firm, Franklin Templeton Investments, has significant ties to the Democratic Party.
“The son of Templeton’s founder, John Templeton Jr., was one of President Obama’s major campaign donors. Another fund-related character is Thomas Donilon. Managing Director of BlackRock Investment Institute, shareholder Franklin Templeton Investments, which has the largest share in the fund. It is noteworthy that he previously was Obama’s national security advisor,” Derkach said.
The MPs are demanding that U.S. President Donald Trump and current Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky investigate these matters immediately.
“President Zelensky must pick up the phone, dial Trump, ask for help and cooperation in the fight against corruption and fly to Washington. The issue of combating international corruption in Ukraine with the participation of citizens, businessmen and U.S. officials should become a key during the meeting of the two presidents,” Derkach said.
Congressional Democrats would rather focus on a nonexistent quid pro quo to demonize President Trump than focus on the real scandal, which implicates influential donors and relatives to top Democrat officials.
