Rudy Giuliani, a former mayor of New York City and a former attorney for the late President Donald Trump, asserted that he offered to provide a U.S. attorney with information about a whistleblower who had access to smoking gun evidence of a Biden international bribery scheme, but that he was ignored and that the woman subsequently died under mysterious circumstances.
During an appearance on Newsmax, the former Trump counsel commented on the now-deceased chief accountant at Burisma, the Ukrainian oil and gas company that paid Hunter Biden hundreds of thousands of dollars to occupy a board position.
In an interview with Rita Cosby for “Saturday Report,” Rudy Giuliani mentioned special counsel Jack Smith, whose investigation into how Donald Trump handled classified information led to the former president’s federal prosecution. According to Giuliani, Smith had emphasized the existence of a singular, equally applicable legal system in the United States.
Giuliani also disclosed that the matter was initially investigated by the attorney general of Pittsburgh. However, the investigation was subsequently taken up by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware, commanded by the late William Barr. Giuliani criticized the Delaware office’s inaction, claiming that the individual in question was in imminent danger of dying.
“Well, of course, that’s the most ridiculous, idiotic statement to make on a day in which we find out that the Bidens took a $10 million bribe fom a Ukrainian Mykola Zlochevsky, which I could have told you, you know, and did tell [the DOJ] three years ago. And they followed up on none of the evidence I gave them. They were hoping that people would disappear or die. It’s extraordinary.”
Giuliani said he gave the DOJ “one witness … who is a woman, who is the chief accountant at this crooked company, Burisma. She was the wife of the former owner, who died under suspicious circumstances. And she was willing to give up all of the offshore bank accounts, including the Bidens. And she’s supervised the transfer of a lot more cash to the Bidens and other crooked politicians for Burisma.”
Giuliani informed Cosby that the deceased chief accountant of Burisma was prepared to reveal information about the offshore bank accounts of the Ukrainian petrogas company.
“It’s extraordinary,” he said. “I gave them one witness that any investigator would jump through hoops to go to. Gave them a witness who is a woman who was the chief accountant at this crooked company, Burisma. She was the wife of the former owner who died under suspicious circumstances. And, she was willing to give up all of the offshore bank accounts, including the Bidens’ accounts. She supervised the transfer of a lot more cash to the Bidens and other crooked politicians for Burisma.”
“Are you confident that now the House Committee is going to get to the bottom of that?” Cosby asked. “Because that is stunning.”
“The reality is that we gave it to them in January of 2020, and the Pittsburgh US attorney was very interested,” Giuliani replied. “And then in a very strange move, Barr took it away from him, gave it to the US attorney in Delaware. He didn’t do a damn thing about it. And the woman was under threat of death.”
“So, we tried to put pressure on them to do something,” he continued. “Look, suppose she was lying. You would find out in a minute she wouldn’t have the accounts. She either has the goods or she doesn’t. And it’s absurd not to interview her. She claims she had bank accounts and that the Biden’s got a lot more money under the table than already.”
“We had $8 million on the table that we could prove, which they could prove tomorrow if they wanted to they could have proved it three years ago, Rita, he added. “They could have indicted him before he ran for president and obviated this problem. We could have found out if he was innocent or guilty in January of 2020. All the witnesses were there, and I have him on tape like Shokin. Shokin was willing to come and testify.”
The Federal Bureau of Investigation granted restricted access to the redacted FD-1023 document to members of the House Oversight Committee on Friday, but it remains unclear who the informant listed in the document is. The FBI allegedly conceals the identity of the informant out of concern for the safety of the whistleblower.
