A former Ukrainian chief prosecutor identified a document that, in his opinion, the United States should “demand” because it purports to prove President Joe Biden’s culpability beyond a reasonable doubt.
During Biden’s tenure as Barack Obama’s vice president, Victor Shokin, the administration’s Ukraine expert at the time, was targeted for termination. Friday, One America News White House reporter Chanel Rion reposted an interview she conducted with Shokin in 2019 in response to his clarification of the allegation.
At the time, the Democratically-controlled House was preparing to impeach then-President Donald Trump over allegations of a “quid pro quo” with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Democrats asserted that Trump threatened to withhold military support unless Zelensky assisted with an investigation into Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who were serving lucrative terms on the board of a Ukrainian energy company that Shokin had previously investigated.
The Senate absolved Trump of the charges. During this time, Biden was depicted in a video explaining how, as vice president, he had threatened to withhold $1 billion in aid from then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko unless he fired then-Prosecutor General Shokin.
Poroshenko did it in fact.
In a subsequent interview with OAN, Shokin claimed that the transcript of a phone call between Biden and Poroshenko would prove his use of a quid pro quo bribe to convince the Ukrainians to stop an investigation into corruption at a company where his son was a board member earning an estimated $50,000 per month.
“The transcripts of Biden’s telephone conversations with Poroshenko is where the truth will show itself. Americans must demand it. And if they do, they will see, broad as day, Joe Biden was illegally influencing foreign officials in order to protect his son Hunter and shield illegal money laundering activities,” Shokin told Rion.
Rion added: “Just 1 year after this interview in Kiev, I found the recordings and reported on it” in a tweet that included a video clip of the interview. Shokin affirmed their legitimacy.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) noted on Friday that in addition to the FBI form that has been subpoenaed by the House Oversight Committee, there are two additional FBI forms that contain incriminating information about Biden.
Biden participated in a pay-to-play conspiracy while serving as vice president, as evidenced by the FD-1023 document generated by the FBI based on a “highly credible” source, according to Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky). In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Greene disclosed the specifics of the document she viewed inside a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF).
She stated that she and other attendees were not permitted to take notes or make duplicates, but she took “very detailed notes” despite the prohibition.
According to Greene, material in the paper that was subpoenaed “implicates Joe Biden in a pay-to-play scheme bribery scheme to get a prosecutor fired that was investigating Burisma where Hunter Biden sat on the board.”
She also stated that the FBI source is “extremely credible” and that the paper “implicates our national security” because it puts Americans “at risk” due to the conflict in Ukraine.
“This is an impeachable document. President Biden should be impeached. Secondly, he should be prosecuted. This is unbelievable. It’s a pay-to-play scheme. He took a bribe from a foreign national in a foreign country that paid millions of dollars,” Greene told the outlet. “He needs to be prosecuted for this, and I would argue that he should serve jail time.”
