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.
FBI Director Christopher Wray Blames Sovereign Citizens, Militias for Summer’s BLM/ANTIFA Riots
The FBI has become a joke.
FBI Director Christopher Wray blamed sovereign citizen movements and militias for the summer’s unprecedented and historical riots, in which almost 30 Americans were killed, 700 law enforcement officers were injured, and 14,000 people were arrested.
Wray was responding to a question in a Tuesday hearing posed by Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz was inquiring as to the FBI’s plan to deter and prevent mob-style riot crime in American cities, with Wray’s answers seeming to suggest the agency has no real plan to avoid a repeat of the experiences of summer 2020 later this year.
In reality, the summer’s riots are almost entirely the fault of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA. BLM engaged in an onslaught of destruction targeting small businesses and powerless members of American communities, after the controversial death of George Floyd.
Wray made a token allusion to “anarchist” extremism, before citing sovereign citizens and militias for BLM/ANTIFA’s violence.
“A lot of that activity fell in what we would categorize as anti-government, anti-authority violent extremism. Some of it is anarchist, violent extremism; some of it is militia violent extremism. Some of it might even be sovereign citizen violent extremism.“
Wray made no reference to the criminal Black Lives Matter riot movement, or the street terror cult known as ANTIFA. He did reference a Patriot Prayer demonstrator who was shot and killed by an ANTIFA militant in Portland.
With Biden’s ascension to the Presidential Throne, Democrats are chomping at the bit at the prospect of using powerful and unaccountable federal law enforcement agencies to gin up bogus accusations and surveillance of patriotic Donald Trump supporters and America First advocates. Don’t expect the FBI to arrive on the scene if ANTIFA/BLM crime explodes in the summer- unless, of course, a so-called “extremist” can be found on the scene waiving an American flag.
