Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent blew the whistle in 2015 about Hunter Biden’s shady deals in the Ukraine with the gas company Burisma Holdings, but his concerns were swept under the rug by Obama administration officials.
According to the Washington Post, Kent testified behind closed doors this week to Congressional committees where he confirmed that he had concerns about the foreign business dealings of Vice President Joe Biden’s son.
Biden infamously bragged about using his political power to strong-arm the Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was looking into the deal between his son and the Ukrainian gas firm.
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.

Hunter even admitted during a recent interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that he would not have likely received the cushy $50,000-per-month position without any experience in the energy sector if not for his crony connections.

According to his testimony, Kent was worried that Hunter’s deal with Burisma could harm diplomatic relations with Ukraine, and also cited conflict of interest concerns over the deal. He also believed that Hunter’s position would give Ukrainian officials the impression that he was a direct channel to his influential father and perhaps the White House.
After Kent formally brought up the issue, his fellow staffers at the Secretary of State reportedly “blew him off” and brushed his concerns aside. The staff claimed they didn’t have the “bandwidth” to deal with the matter due to Hunter’s now-deceased older brother Beau, who was fighting cancer at the time.
Biden’s presidential campaign denies that their candidate committed any impropriety, despite his public admission of threatening to withhold aid money to Ukraine, and puts all of the blame on President Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump’s unprecedently corrupt administration is melting down because of the scandal he touched-off by trying to get Ukraine to lie about Joe Biden–and as the vice president said yesterday, he should release his tax returns or shut up,” a Biden campaign spokesperson said to Fox News.
“On Joe Biden’s watch, the U.S. made eradicating corruption a centerpiece of our policies toward Ukraine including achieving the removal of an inept prosecutor who shielded wrongdoers from accountability,” they added.
However, former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin denies that he was inept and testified in a sworn affidavit for the European court that he was fired at the behest of the former Vice President.
“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 wrote in his testimony.
“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 added.
As the Democrats move forward on impeaching President Trump for alleged misdeeds regarding the Ukraine, their hypocrisy could not be more blatant in lieu of the crooked behavior of the Biden family.
WOW: John Durham is Reportedly Dropping Russia-Gate Investigation to Appease Biden ‘Administration’
Durham’s probe ends as an empty flop.
U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly giving up on the Russia-gate investigation, as he is too scared to delve into the truth now that Biden has been announced as president-elect by the globalists.
Thus far, Durham’s investigation has been a huge bust. His work has only resulted in the prosecution of one individual – former FBI Attorney Kevin Clinesmith – for making or using “any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry.”
Outside of this nobody, there have been no prosecutions that have resulted from Durham’s Russia-gate investigation despite the laundry list of evidence showing wrongdoing.
Sean Davis of The Federalist has reported that the investigation is over. Durham is apparently quitting because of cowardice.

Big League Politics has reported on Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch blowing the whistle on Durham’s failure to do his job and investigate what was arguably the biggest crime in U.S. history prior to the vote steal:
Trump supporters are waiting with baited breath for U.S. Attorney John Durham to come out with his explosive findings in regards to his investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion probe against President Trump.
According to Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton, Trump supporters are getting taken for a ride. Fitton said during a recent appearance on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that Barr and Durham are making no progress on investigating what very well may be the worst criminal conspiracy in U.S. history.
“You know, my concern is it’s been, what, sixteen-plus months since Durham was appointed and only now is he questioning Mr. Brennan,” Fitton said.
Fitton said that he is inclined to believe disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan when he says that he is not a person of interest in Durham’s investigation.
“I don’t see grand juries operating. I don’t see a bunch of witnesses coming in. I don’t see lawyers complaining about their clients being brought in before Durham,” Fitton said.
He said that the Mueller investigation was run much more thoroughly than Durham’s so-called investigation, the goal of which appears to be protecting the deep state.
“You know when the government is being pressure on witnesses and subjects and that is not evident here,” Fitton said, adding that it is his opinion that Durham is “not doing the work” needed to bring deep state criminals to justice.
Fitton did not object to Dobbs’ characterization that he is calling the Durham a “sham.”
“I’ll have to tell you. I’m a little concerned that the FBI is no longer an investigative agency because if this is the way they operate, it’s going to take them decades to deal with anything of real complexity,” Dobbs said.
It seems that Durham, and his boss Attorney General Bill Barr, were just deep state hacks all along. So much for “Trust the Plan,” huh?
