Once again corporate media completely ignored yesterday’s biggest story, instead doing its level best to smother it by rapidly pushing out explosive fake news stories, assisted by the DoJ, which is currently trying to indict everybody it can, including most famously President Trump.

The story was, in an electrifying floor address yesterday, U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley dramatically informed Congress that the document the FBI has been diligently concealing reported that its confidential source has SEVENTEEN recordings of bribery phone calls between the Burisma executive and Joe and Hunter Biden.



Grassley wondered why nobody followed up, say, to try and get ahold of those recordings, or even mention them to anybody? In his statement, Grassley pointed out it’s not like the FBI has been shy about presidential audio recordings:

It’s clear that the Justice Department and FBI will use every resource to investigate candidate Trump, President Trump and former President Trump [and] it’s clear that the Justice Department, the FBI, haven’t nearly had the same laser-focus on the Biden family. Special counsel Jack Smith has used a recording against former president Trump. Well, what is US Attorney Weiss doing with respect to these alleged Joe and Hunter Biden recordings that are apparently relevant to the high-stakes bribery scheme?

Grassley revealed that, even after the FBI agreed to show the Oversight Committee a copy of its Biden Bribery form, all references on the form to the recordings were redacted. In other words, the FBI literally covered up the recordings’ existence — even though the document had already been unclassified.

Senator Grassley also seems to think, as I do, there’s some connection between the timing of President Trump’s bogus indictment and the nation-shaking Biden Bribery story:

And on the same day that the FBI provided a redacted version of the 1023 to the House Oversight Committee, the Justice Department announced that former President Trump had been indicted and charged with 37 crimes relating to his alleged mishandling of classified records.
Here’s the link to Grassley’s statement, including the transcript and the video:

The Big Guy is definitely on Pukin's payroll:

President Biden and his team stayed in contact with foreign leaders. White House and State Department officials spoke to the other major democracies, known as the Group of Seven; they added India and Australia as members of the “Quad.” They consulted with NATO and the European Union.
The message in all these calls, I’m told, was “cool it.” Don’t make the crisis in Russia more dangerous by seeking to intervene or profit from the disarray. This message was focused especially on Ukraine; U.S. officials stressed their desire that Kyiv not seem to take advantage of the strife in Russia in ways that might spiral into an even more dangerous moment. The Ukrainians, from what we can see, followed that advice.

Was it delivered through that Burisma deal or via that $3M "RE investment" from Baturina, or through "art sales" or maybe some other way is anybody's guess. But it explains the above described protective behavior towards Pukin's regime, the "too little too late" approach to arms deliveries, erecting unexplainable barriers when some other country wants to deliver arms (like that 1 year delay in Poland's delivery of their MIG fighters which had no other reason except Biden blocking it), etc.

🔥 Biden confidante Devon Archer testified in a close-door hearing in the Biden Bribery investigation yesterday. As we work through this convoluted story, and what it means, remember that the democrats (plus Mitt Romney) impeached Trump for just asking Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden’s involvement in Ukraine. So, they set the standard. The Republicans now have vastly more grounds to bring impeachment.

First, who is Devon Archer? Like all the star-crossed gentlemen found haplessly hurtling in the Biden orbit, Devon Archer is, shall we say, an interesting character. Archer, 58, has been variously described as Hunter’s best friend, business partner, and consigliere. He offers impeccable beltway blue-blood bona fides; Archer attended a prestigious prep school, got his B.A. at Columbia, and holds a law degree from Harvard.

More significantly, after corrupt Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holding’s board opened up to other influence seekers, I mean experts in the European energy sector, Archer joined that energy company’s board of directors along with Hunter, presumably accruing a vast unearned salary as well.




Hunter, Archer, and John Kerry’s stepson, Christopher Heinz co-founded dodgy “investment firm” Rosemont Seneca.

The relationship may have soured when in 2018, Archer was convicted by a federal jury for a fraudulent scheme to use “tribal bonds” to defraud the Oglala Sioux Tribe and its investors. However, in 2019, U.S. District Judge Ronnie Abrams overturned his conviction after ruling that the evidence the jury used was insufficient to support the charges. The case against Archer was conveniently dismissed, and he was temporarily acquitted of all charges.

Rumors suggest Archer blames the Bidens for the prosecution, or for not protecting him from being prosecuted.

(Incidentally, Judge Abrams, a Yale graduate and Obama appointee, has been in the news twice recently. First, when Trump’s New York criminal case had a brief federal moment, there was a short-lived controversy over whether the judge should recuse herself, since she’s married to Greg Andres, who worked on Mueller’s Russiagate investigation. In the second high-profile story, Judge Abrams recently recused herself from Sam Bankman-Fried’s case, since her hubby Greg also worked as a lawyer for FTX. It’s a small club.)

In 2020, after Judge Abrams abruptly overruled the jury and sprung Archer, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals reversed Judge Abrams, and reinstated Archer’s conviction. Not so fast, Devon. Since 2020, Archer has been fending off the sentence through a series of appeals, with the most recent rejected by the Second Circuit earlier this year. Archer’s lawyer promised a further appeal is in the works.

Last Friday — just one business day before his scheduled Congressional testimony — the Department of Justice sent Archer a highly unusual letter inquiring when he plans to report for prison.

Or, maybe Joe Biden was just reminding Archer that his drawn-out criminal case could wind up going the good way or the bad way. You never know. Something to think about. In any case, Republicans immediately identified the letter as Biden Administration intimidation trying to frustrate Devon’s testimony.

But despite the DOJ’s threatening letter, Archer testified yesterday. According to a written summary released by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, Archer carefully testified that:

— Hunter Biden put Joe Biden on the speakerphone nearly 20 times, while speaking with various sketchy “business associates,” to prove that Hunter had immediate access to his dad whenever necessary.

— “Burisma would have gone out of business sooner if the Biden brand had not been invoked. People would be intimidated to legally mess with Burisma because of the Biden family brand.”

— Joe Biden joined in on various phone conversations with Burisma managers to “sell the brand.”

— Hunter said Che Feng, a PLA-connected Chinese tycoon who helped them secure a multi-million-dollar venture in the communist state, loved Hunter for his "last name" and for “always traveling with handsome godlike Aryan men.”

— Joe Biden attended other business meetings with Hunter in person—in Beijing and in Washington, D.C.—with shady Chinese and Russian businessmen.

— Burisma pressured Hunter to “get help from D.C.” dealing with Ukrainian corruption prosecutor Viktor Shokin.

As you probably know, Joe Biden has publicly bragged about getting Mr. Shokin fired—based on never-charged claims that the prosecutor investigating corruption was himself corrupt. Joe began lobbying for Shokin’s removal five days after the phone call referenced above.

Democrats do not agree Archer’s testimony proves anything. They pounced on the fact that Archer told the Committee that the Bidens never discussed business on those calls. But this is a retreating position. Before Archer testified, democrats argued the calls never happened. But now, they are forced to admit the calls did happen, but have to argue about the calls’ substance. (Don’t hold your breath waiting for them to apologize for claiming the calls never happened in the first place.)

Conservative commentators, even restrained ones like George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley, are convinced Archer’s testimony, as noncommittal as it was, substantially moved the investigation forward. In an interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox last night, Turley explained the testimony proved Biden was involved with “almost two dozen calls with these corrupt business figures from Ukraine, Russia, and China … the question is what did they get for their money? We have to find the answers… This is shaping up to be one of the greatest corruption scandals in the history of Washington — and that is saying a lot. ”

Also yesterday, and totally coincidentally, in another story ignored by corporate media, U.S. Attorney General “Grandma” Garland announced he was finally appointing special counsel to review the Biden Bribery allegations and the latest allegations that Hunter was selling U.S. government access to wealthy criminals all around the world. Presumably it would include investigating Joe Biden as well. ...

It sounds like progress, but there was a catch.

The catch was, the special counsel Garland appointed is the exact same U.S. Attorney who just tried to slip a sweetheart plea deal past the judge in Hunter’s tax case: Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss. The plea deal would have exonerated Hunter for his involvement in the bribery transactions as well as anything else, although opinions on that differ.

So nobody is expecting Attorney Weiss to develop any criminal charges against Joe Biden. The democrats don’t care about whatever Joe did, and the Republicans don’t believe Weiss is a serious investigator.

After Garland’s press statement, the House Oversight Committee immediately tweeted its indignant response, angrily pointing out that Weiss’s appointment was obviously a pathetic attempt to whitewash the White House. Among other sharp comments, the Committee’s tweet said, “The Biden Justice Department is trying to stonewall congressional oversight as we have presented evidence to the American people about the Biden family’s corruption.”

One side effect of opening a special counsel investigation is that the Justice Department will almost certainly start refusing to provide any more information about the Biden Bribery cases citing its “ongoing investigation.” It’s political chess.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2023/08/17/james-comer-demands-nara-provide-records-related-joe-bidens-work-ukraine/


House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) demanded Thursday that the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) hand over all documents and communications in which then-Vice President Joe Biden used pseudonyms such as “Robert Peters,” “Robin Ware,” and “JRB Ware.”

Comer listed the pseudonyms in a letter to NARA in which he demanded access to then-Vice President Joe Biden’s documents and communications regarding official duties that overlapped with his son’s activities in Ukraine.

One email, which Comer says the committee has already seen, includes an attachment with the vice president’s schedule, indicating that he had spoken by phone to then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. The email was sent to a “Robert L. Peters” and cc’ed to the vice president’s son, Hunter Biden.

Joe Biden was the designated foreign policy point person to Ukraine during the Obama administration. The House Oversight Committee argues that Joe Biden threatened to withhold U.S. aid to Ukraine in 2015 until the president of Ukraine fired prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who had jurisdiction for an investigation into the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.

Burisma paid Hunter Biden $83,000 a month for a board position to obtain the Biden “brand,” as Biden business associate Devon Archer described the arrangement.

Let’s check in on the developing Biden Bribery story, which continued slowly dripping this week. The Federalist ran a story yesterday headlined, “Comer Demands National Archives Fork Over Info On Biden’s Business Pseudonyms.”

As early as 2021, reports based on Hunter laptop emails surfaced that Joe Biden had been using a variety of odd pseudonyms in his emails and maybe elsewhere. But, thanks to a coordinated media—deep state effort to discredit the laptop, combined with pandemic confusion, the story never went anywhere.

The story may have been lost, but it looks like it wasn’t forgotten.

On Thursday, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer formally demanded the National Archives cough up any document or communication containing any of Joe Biden’s several aliases, including “Robert L. Peters, Robin Ware, and JRB Ware.”

The Ware Group was a notorious communist spy ring that infiltrated a bunch of American institutions during the 1930’s, such as labor unions, universities, research institutions, arts and literary circles, media organizations, political groups, and government agencies. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

Comer recently revealed one of Biden's other pseudonyms, Robert L. Peters, was used in an email referencing an official government call with Ukraine’s president — but Hunter Biden was copied, for some reason. Biden's pseudonomous email address is (or was) Robert.L.Peters@pci.gov .

It’s sufficiently weird that a government official, never mind the vice-president, would be using a variety of email aliases. At minimum, it evidences a conspiracy to thwart public records laws. But the above email also gave the lie to Joe’s repeated claims that he never mixed Hunter’s business with government business. Never ever. Not one single time.

We’ll see what the Archives delivers, if anything. That’s the same group that was persecuting Trump over classified presidential records, so you can imagine they won’t be falling over themselves to help.

Anyway, if Joe Biden wants us to call him Bob Peters, that’s fine with me. I’m easy that way.

Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the richest woman in Russia and the widow of Yury Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow, Senate Republicans revealed in their report on the younger Biden’s work in Ukraine.

Baturina is referenced in the 87-page report, which was released Wednesday, addressing her payment to Biden’s investment firm in early 2014.

“Baturina became Russia’s only female billionaire when her plastics company, Inteko, received a series of Moscow municipal contracts while her husband was mayor,” it said in providing background on the businesswoman.

The report described her involvement with Biden as “a financial relationship,” but declined to delve deeper into why the wire transfer was made.

The probe also found that Baturina sent 11 wires transfers between May and December 2015 to a bank account belonging to BAK USA, a tech startup that filed for bankruptcy in March 2019.

Nine of those 11 wire transfers were first sent to Rosemont Seneca Partners, the investment firm founded by Biden and Chris Heinz, stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry, before being transferred to BAK USA.

All 11 transactions described the payments as “Loan Agreement” in the details section.

The report reads, “[B]etween May 6, 2015 and Dec. 8, 2015, Baturina sent 11 wires in the amount of $391,968.21 to a bank account belonging to BAK USA LLC (BAK USA). Nine of the 11 transactions, totaling $241,797.14 were sent from Baturina’s accounts to a Rosemont Seneca Thornton bank account, which then transferred to the money to BAK USA. The 11 transactions all listed ‘Loan Agreement’ in the payment details section.

“BAK USA was a startup technology company headquartered in Buffalo, N.Y., that produced tablet computers in cooperation with unnamed Chinese business partners. BAK USA filed for bankruptcy on March 29, 2019, with a reported loss of $39 million. These transactions were identified because of Baturina’s reported criminal activity,” it continues.



That Baturina cunt is the widow of Luzhkov - the Moscow's mayor who was obsessed with territorial claims in Crimea since 1996:

In 1996 Luzhkov, hoping to advance his political stature on a national level, became the main advocate for a claim to the city of Sevastopol in Ukraine. In December, the Russian Federation Council passed a resolution officially claiming the city, affecting negotiations between President Boris Yeltsin and Ukraine's President Leonid Kuchma over possession of the Black Sea Fleet (housed at Sevastopol) and helping spur Ukraine to seek a relationship with NATO.

On 12 May 2008 Luzhkov was banned from entering Ukraine by the Security Service (SBU) after his statement concerning the legal status of Sevastopol.



This explains the foot-dragging and inaction on slapping down Soviet attempts at restoring the empire.

During a remarkable discussion this weekend on Jake Tapper’s CNN show, the celebrated anchor first surprised his viewers by correctly reporting that Hunter Biden did in fact somehow earn sketchy millions — “substantial sums” — from Ukrainian and Chinese sources. Tapper left unsaid, but painfully obvious, that nobody still knows what Hunter supposedly got paid for, exactly.

Maybe someday, someone will ask the Bidens that question.

https://twitter.com/RaheemKassam/status/1692588965121913081

Next, Tapper shocked CNN’s lefty viewers even more, when he correctly pointed out that, during the 2016 Trump-Biden debates, Biden firmly but falsely said “my son has NOT made money, in terms of this thing about, what you’re talking about, China … that’s NOT true.”

Biden clearly lied and did not make a mistake. Bob Peters, I mean Joe, didn’t say “I don’t know whether Hunter is getting paid by the Chinese.” Instead he said, “that’s not true.” While one of Tapper’s co-anchors gamely tossed out the prepackaged defense that “nothing connects Hunter’s money to Biden,” he protested too much. Tapper hadn’t yet accused Hunter of doing anything illegal that could be connected to Biden. So nobody else on the panel touched the premature defense, and it ingloriously died on the table.

That was good enough, but I almost coughed up a hairball when Tapper bluntly told the shocked panelists, “I mean … Trump was right.” That’s probably as much vindication as the former President will ever get. Trump should use it in a campaign commercial or something.

First up is a remarkable story from the UK Daily Mail yesterday, featuring the typical extended headline: “Fired Ukrainian prosecutor Shokin says Joe and Hunter Biden DID take BRIBES - and were behind his ousting: 'Isn't that corruption alone?' he says in preview of bombshell interview.”

I’ve been sneering contemptuously at U.S. Establishment Media for ages over the fact they seem to be totally unaware of former Ukranian Prosecutor-General Viktor Shokin, the guy Biden blackmailed Ukraine into firing, the guy who’d been investigating Burisma and the Bidens, the guy who’d just locked down all Burisma’s assets — while Hunter was on the board — when “Big Guy” Joe Biden got involved. Shokin is sort of at the center of everything, but U.S. Establishment Media couldn’t find the special prosecutor if he had bells on.

But finally someone has found Viktor, and apparently he’s talking a blue streak. The Daily Mail reported that tonight at 8pm Fox News will air “an explosive interview” with Shokin, in which the former prosecutor-general will claim that Joe and Hunter Biden were 'corrupt,’ that they accepted large cash bribes from Burisma, and were behind his firing.

Sounds about right. Quid pro quo, Joe. Drip, drip.

“I do not want to deal in unproven facts. But my firm personal conviction is that yes, this was the case. They were being bribed," Shokin explained in Fox’s preview clip. Shokin would know.

Back in 2018, two years after Shokin’s sudden and unexpected firing, Biden bragged that he told Ukraine he would personally withhold a billion dollars in U.S. aid if the Ukrainians failed to immediately fire Shokin. “I looked at them and said, 'I'm leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you're not getting the money,’” Biden boasted.

“Well, son of a bitch. He got fired,” the former vice-president continued, chortling merrily.

Biden’s probably not laughing so hard now.

As I said, at that the time Joe blackmailed Ukraine, Hunter was collecting a sweet million dollars a year for doing nothing on Burisma’s hastily-created “board of directors.” Why Hunter Biden would even be qualified for a fake board seat on a Ukrainian energy company being investigated for corruption remains a perplexing mystery. To some people.

The Daily Mail article also described details about Devon Archer’s recent Congressional testimony, in which the former Hunter business partner described “business” meetings with shady foreign oligarchs, in which Joe Biden got on the phone, after which millions of dollars flowed into Hunter’s various sham companies.

The cries of “no evidence” are sounding more and more like distant echoes down liberal canyon. There is already more evidence to indict Joe Biden on a container-load of crimes than the entire collection of “evidence” from four cases against Trump. So.

Oh, Biden is laughing even harder. He knows nothing will come of this.

Hunter Biden’s firm, Joe’s VP office exchanged more than 1,000 emails...

“These records provide even more evidence that no daylight existed between Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and the Office of the Vice President during the Obama Administration,” Gene Hamilton, America First Legal vice president and general counsel, said in a statement.

“The evidence accumulating against the Biden family’s malfeasance is staggering. We will continue to put the pieces of this puzzle together and expose the truth to the American people,” he added.

“Joe Biden” has LARPed his way to the final act of his performance. The evidence of his high crimes, and the covering-up of those high crimes by our lawless law officialdom, is piled high enough to eject him into the swales of infamy. We know exactly how the Ukraine grift went down — the documentation is stark and florid — as is the rest of family’s bribery operations in other lands not necessarily friendly to our own land. So, add treason to bribery and there you have the complete kit of perfidious treachery against the nation.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12453245/Emails-Hunter-Biden-tried-help-shut-Burisma-probe.html


Shocking emails reveal Hunter Biden helped coordinate a plan with Democrat strategists to 'close down any cases' against the owner of allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm Burisma and 'gain intelligence' on the country's top prosecutor's office.

The emails bolster claims by ex-Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin that the First Son and his then-Vice President dad conspired to kill Shokin's criminal investigation of Burisma.

Last weekend Fox News broadcast an interview with Shokin, where he repeated his previous allegations that Joe Biden got him fired over his Burisma probe.

Emails obtained by DailyMail.com from Hunter's abandoned laptop lay bare how the First Son was involved in Burisma's attempts to thwart law enforcement looking into its alleged corruption.
