This is a Holy Sh*t factor in the Ukrainian saga.
According to a former Ukrainian parliament member, the Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings hired former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden for protection.
Oleksandr Onyshchenko, the Ukrainian businessman, revealed that Hunter Biden was hired by Burisma’s founder, Mykola Zlochevsky because the company was being accused of massive corruption and they wanted to be protected by the Vice President’s son.
“It was to protect [the company],” Onyshchenko said on Friday.
The Bidens have been in the hot seat in the past month after the House Democrats started an impeachment inquiry into President Trump over a phone call the President had with the president of Ukraine.
During an interview last week, Hunter Biden sat down with ABC’s Amy Robach to discuss his overseas business dealings and how they relate to his father.
Hunter Biden denied any wrongdoing in regards to his overseas business however he did admit that it was poor judgement to join the associations in China and Ukraine.
“In retrospect, look, I think that it was poor judgment on my part,” the younger Biden said. “Is that I think that it was poor judgment because I don’t believe now when I look back on it — I know that there was — did nothing wrong at all. However, was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is a swamp in—in—in many ways? Yeah.”
“So I take full responsibility for that,” he continued. “Did I do anything improper? No, not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever. Did I make a mistake based upon some ethical lapse? Absolutely not.”
This is a developing story.
