Senate Probe Finds John Kerry Falsely Claimed He Had No Knowledge of Hunter Bidenís Role in Burisma

Former Secretary of State John Kerry falsely claimed in 2019 that he had no knowledge of Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Burisma Holdings, Inc., according to the Senate report on Biden’s financial dealings released on Wednesday.

Kerry was asked by a reporter from NBC News on December 8, 2019, whether he knew of Hunter Biden’s activities during his tenure as secretary of state in the Obama administration from 2013-2017. Biden From 2014-2019 held a seat on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company whose former head and founder Mykola Zlochevsky is suspected of bribery and various other crimes. (Zlochevsky’s whereabouts are currently unknown.)

Vice president Joe Biden led the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy after Russia’s 2014 annexation of the Crimean peninsula and subsequent war in eastern Ukraine. Hunter Biden’s position at Burisma led American officials to worry about the appearance of a conflict of interest in their Ukraine policy. 4

“I had no knowledge about any of that. None. No,” Kerry told the reporter regarding Biden’s position on the Burisma board. “What would I know about any—no. Why would I know about any company or any individual? No.”

However, Kerry’s former chief of staff David Wade testified to the Senate Homeland Security Committee that he informed Kerry personally of Biden’s role at Burisma. Wade received an email on May 13, 2014, from Kerry’s stepson, Chris Heinz, telling him that Hunter Biden and associate Devon Archer had joined Burisma.

Additionally, former Kerry adviser David Thorne told Wade on May 14, 2014, that he had forwarded news articles on Hunter Biden’s Burisma position directly to Kerry himself, according to emails uncovered by the Senate committee. The emails included links to serveral articles, including one titled “White House says no issue with Biden’s son, Ukraine gas company.”

The lady doth protest too much.

I learned all about this from the Glenn Beck video from a little under a year ago concerning the Rinos and Dems (and primarily Biden’s) involvements in Ukraine affairs.

No one knows for sure, but he’s presumed to be on the communist side.

I recall hearing something about him being in the Navy. He was an Admiral or something, right?

The President has been biding his time for a while, and NOW it’s coming out!! Any intelligent person saw this coming. How can Liberals BE so stupid? Poke the sleeping giant… at your own peril.

When considering the Obamas, the Clintons, the Bidens, the Kennedys, Kerry and the rest it is best to view the Democratic Party as a unfied, decadent criminal conspiracy. They collude with corrupt financiers such as Soros, Epstein, the Silicon scum,and have Antifa goon squads to do the violence. Nothing but criminals.

“ What, at this point, does it matter?”

Like I said in an earlier post: Folks don’t understand that we are living in an alternate reality where Superman is the bad guy and Mr. Spock wears a goatee (I know only trekkies will get the reference), otherwise it would matter a great deal.
