Biden extortion of Ukraine comes out in recordings


Recording of calls between Joe Biden, ex-Ukraine President Poroshenko leaked

The New York Post reveals how recordings have crawled out of the grave to haunt a corrupt Joe Biden.

Leaked phone conversations between Joe Biden and then-Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko have been made public by a Ukrainian lawmaker.

Edited recordings of the calls were played at a news conference Tuesday in Kiev by Andriy Derkach, who has claimed he has proof showing that Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian natural gas company that employed Biden’s son Hunter Biden, paid then-Vice President Joe Biden $900,000 in lobbying fees.

Details of the conversations between Biden and Poroshenko have been previously reported.

Derkach said he received the leaked audio from “investigative journalists” — and that the recordings were made by Poroshenko himself.

Audio of the calls with English subtitles was later posted on YouTube.

In one conversation, Biden and Poroshenko discuss the aftermath of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin’s ouster and the appointment of his replacement.

“It’s going to be critical for him to work quickly to repair the damage that Shokin did,” Biden said in the call. “And I’m a man of my word. And now that the new prosecutor general is in place, we’re ready to move forward to signing that new $1 billion loan guarantee.”

At the time, Biden was publicly pushing for reform of the prosecutor general’s office. Last year, Biden said he told Poroshenko that Ukraine would not receive the $1 billion unless Shokin was booted.

The released recordings do not mention Hunter Biden or Burisma.

Derkach, a former member of the pro-Russia Party of Regions, has pushed for a corruption case against the Bidens. He and Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, met in Kiev in December.

Derkach has previously claimed Biden pressured Ukraine in December 2015 to force Shokin’s resignation and dangled $1 billion in loan guarantees as an incentive.

Biden’s campaign responded to the release of the recording, claiming it was part of an ongoing effort by the Russians to hurt Biden.

“They heavily edited this, and it’s still a nothingburger that landed with a thud,” Biden spokesman Andrew Bates told the Washington Post.

Biden’s campaign didn’t immediately return a message from the New York Post.

A second compiled recording provides additional information

A second compiled recording of Biden talking to Ukrainian officials paints Biden as even less of a trustworthy figure.

As pointed out on Bunkerville, Biden-Ukraine Accusations Senate report includes leaked phone calls

Bunkerville points out how a larger set of recordings suggest that there are problematic issues with the Biden candidacy.

We have been through the Hunter-Biden Ukraine story what seems like forever. However this one may have some legs. Included in the video below is the well played Biden displaying his machismo in firing a Ukrainian prosecutor but included are the phone calls. Worth the listen:

Senate Republicans are set to release their long-awaited report on Joe and Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine, and is expected to conclude that Hunter Biden’s lucrative seat the board of Ukrainian energy giant Burisma impacted Obama-era Ukraine policy, which was led by Joe Biden at the time, according to The Hill.

The Bidens have denied any wrongdoing, however depositions from former Ukrainian officials  who were directly involved, as well as leaked recordings between Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Proroshenko have painted a picture of textbook corruption. Notably, Ukrainian parliamentarian Andriy Derkach was sanctioned by the Treasury Department for “spreading disinformation to ‘undermine’ the former vice president” when he leaked several recordings of “voices similar to Poroshenko and Biden” discussing the quid-pro-quo, which Derkach says a journalist gave to him.
