Ukraine News Agency ^ | October 9th 2019

KYIV. Oct 9 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received $900,000 for lobbying activities from Burisma Group, Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada member Andriy Derkach said citing investigation materials.

Derkach publicized documents which, as he said, "describe the mechanism of getting money by Biden Sr." at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine's press center in Kyiv on Wednesday.

"This was the transfer of Burisma Group's funds for lobbying activities, as investigators believe, personally to Joe Biden through a lobbying company. Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to the U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which according to open sources, in particular, the New York Times, is affiliated with Biden. The payment reference was payment for consultative services," Derkach said.

He also publicized sums that were transferred to Burisma Group representatives, in particular Hunter Biden, a son of the former U.S. vice president.

"Using political and economic levelers of influencing Ukrainian authorities and manipulating the issue of providing financial aid to Ukraine, Joe Biden actively assisted closing criminal cases into the activity of former Ukrainian Ecology Minister Mykola Zlochevsky, who is the founder and owner of Burisma Group," he said.

Hmmm. Crazy Bernie is out. Gray Beaver has lying issues. Ditto for quid pro Joe Biden.

No wonder the rats are dusting off The Hildebeast.

"The payment reference was payment for consultative services..."

Something gives me the feeling that the consulting rate was $900,000 per hour.

Or more.

When was this payment made? Not clear from the article. If it was while he was VP, this is a serious crime.

Corrupt American Oligarch Joe. Showing us both how American politicians get ridiculously wealthy on 190K a year...and why the political establishment of both parties is going literally insane trying to get rid of the outsider.
