Former Vice-President and current Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden was allegedly paid nearly one million dollars by the Burisma Group, the same company which was paying Hunter Biden $50,000 a month.
According to Ukrainian news service Interfax, Joe Biden–and not just his son Hunter–was paid for “consulting services” by energy company Burisma.
Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received $900,000 for lobbying activities from Burisma Group, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada member Andriy Derkach said citing investigation materials, reported Interfax-Ukraine today in Kyiv.
$900,000 for “consulting fees” (in 2015) while Biden was vice-president? Nope, no corruption there.
“This was the transfer of Burisma Group’s funds for lobbying activities, as investigators believe, personally to Joe Biden through a lobbying company. Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to the U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which according to open sources, in particular, the New York Times, is affiliated with Biden. The payment reference was payment for consultative services,” Derkach said.
Well, that’ll just about cover Biden’s presidential aspirations, and what’s left of his political career. Look on the bright side, maybe he and Hunter can share a cell in federal pound-you-in-the-ass prison?
