State, DOJ officials reported to FBI concerns Ukraine gas firm made bribe to local prosecutors while under corruption investigation.
Just eight months after Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter joined the board of Burisma Holdings, U.S. officials in Kiev developed evidence that the Ukrainian gas company may have paid a $7 million bribe to the local prosecutors investigating the firm for corruption, according to interviews and State Department memos.
State officials believed the alleged bribe was paid between May and December 2014 and got confirmation from one prosecutor. They argued the bribe amounted to a "gross miscarriage of justice that undermined months of US assistance" to fight corruption in Ukraine, contemporaneous memos show.
The concerns were eventually reported to the FBI, although it is not clear whether the allegations were ever investigated more fully, according to current and former U.S. and Ukrainian government officials.
The anecdote, buried in five-year-old diplomatic files, provides a fresh illustration of the awkward, uncomfortable conflict of interest State officials perceived as they tried to fight pervasive corruption in Ukraine under Joe Biden's leadership while the vice president's son collected large payments as a board member for an energy firm widely viewed as corrupt.
The concerns first came to a head in January 2015, the memos show, about eight months after Hunter Biden was named to Burisma's board and after two major corruption investigations one in Ukraine and the other in Britain were opened against the gas firm.

Thanks To: Magnum44
Joe now is quoted as saying...”Who’s Hunter”?
I thought Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch might have been involved in this, as she lied under oath about her knowledge of Burisma. She’d actually met with a member of the company, and she never disclosed that information during the impeachment hearings. However, she wasn’t Amabassador at the time this was supposed to have occurred. She didn’t take over as Ambassador until August 29, 2016. Geoffrey Pyatt was the Ukraine Ambassador from July 30, 2013 to August 18, 2016. He was appointed by Obama. He’s now the U.S. Ambassador to Greece. I wonder what his knowledge is of this.
A SHORT read explaining why certain members of the Capitol Hill Mob, the Deep State, certain state and local “officials” and others are sweating bullets over this election.
Let the games begin.
Please read and share!
Arrest Hunter, Joe, Vindmann, and especially, Schiff!

The US govt may have tried to fight Ukraine's pervasive corruption under VP Joe Biden's leadership,
but the vice president's son was collecting large payments as a Burisma board member.
