In Thursday’s video address, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene outlined the allegations of the bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, calling the activities “definitely illegal.” The Georgia Congresswoman stated that the disclosure stemmed from a document she reviewed, which had been provided by the paid FBI informant.
“Reading this form today shows the pure distinction. This information, this source that came forward, it’s a paid informant by the FBI,” said MTG. She made it clear that the information in question was unrelated to the claims brought forward by Rudy Giuliani in 2020 and “extremely credible.”
“Basically what’s happening there is back in 2015-2016, Burisma was looking to buy a U.S.-based oil and gas company and this came from being advised by Hunter Biden and his partners,” MTG explained. Burisma Holdings is one of the largest private natural gas producers in Ukraine. The company became internationally known following the appointment of Hunter Biden to its board of directors in 2014.
She also detailed claims of explicit bribes, alleging Burisma paid $5 million to two members of the Biden family. According to Greene, these payments were made to get Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor investigating Burisma, fired. She further claimed that bribery is common practice in Ukraine and Russia, often budgeted for in business dealings.
Joe Biden in 2016 had pressured the Ukrainian government to fire Shokin, who was investigating Burisma’s leadership for corruption.
“Donor Burisma said that Hunter was stupid and that his other business partner was smart. He also said that he paid five million to one Biden and he paid five million to another Biden,” she stated.
MTG continued to outline the alleged illegal activities, explaining that hiring Hunter Biden to solve Burisma’s legal problems was “definitely illegal for a vice president of the United States and their family members.” She added that the owner of Burisma was not pleased when Trump won the presidency, as he had invested a lot of money into the Bidens to “make his problems go away.”
Greene promised to continue the investigation and urged the FBI to cooperate fully, expressing her disappointment that the FBI did not believe the American public deserved access to the unclassified information she’d seen.
“We’re going to continue to look into every single thing that we can uncover. We need the FBI to keep cooperating with us. That’s extremely important. And I have very high expectations of Christopher Wray that he’ll do the right thing and continue showing us the information that we’re asking for,” said MTG.
The implications of these allegations are yet to be fully understood, and the FBI has not yet commented on Greene’s address or the alleged bribery document.
GOP members continue to mount pressure on the FBI and Biden administration to reveal the full details of the FD-1023 form. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) revealed early Thursday that the House Oversight Committee’s investigation could lead to a presidential impeachment.
Biggs refrained from labeling the allegations as treasonous, but he emphasized the need to uncover the extent of the supposed misconduct and take appropriate action. He expressed frustration with mere talk and stressed the necessity of action if the accumulating evidence supported the allegations.
Many also feel that the Democrats will not be able to defend Biden amidst these allegations, stating that they would eventually need to confront the issue.
