Some not so good for Democrats and Joe Biden coming out of the Ukraine on Friday.
On Friday, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General announced that his office would be reopening all cases involving the addition of Hunter Biden to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
TheAssociated Pressreports Ruslan Ryaboshapka’s comments to reopen the investigations come as the result of a July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
n the conversation, Trump mentioned the investigation and Zelenskiy said he would deploy a new prosecutor to “look into the situation.”
“The other thing, there’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son. [And] that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me,” Trump said according to atranscriptreleased by the White House.
“I wanted to tell you about the prosecutor. First of all, I understand and I’m knowledgeable about the situation. Since we have won the absolute majority in our Parliament, the next prosecutor general will be 100% my person, my candidate who will be approved by the parliament and will start as a new prosecutor in September,” the Ukrainian president answered.
“He or she will look into the situation, specifically to the company that you mentioned in this issue. The issue of the investigation of the case is actually the issue of making sure to restore honesty so we will take care of that and will work on the investigation of the case,” Zelenskiy added.
According to the Associated Press, Prosecutor General Ryaboshapka said his prosecutors would be auditing all cases which were formerly closed or dismissed that involved gas company Burisma, who hired Hunter Biden, and its owner Mykola Zlochevsky.
