According to the FD-1023 form released by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Burisma co-founder and CEO Mykola Zlochevsky claimed he was pressured into paying Biden and Hunter five million dollars to get an investigation into Burisma quashed.
In light of the revelation, this week of an FBI form detailing these corruption allegations against President Joe Biden, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. called for an investigation into Biden in an interview over the weekend.
Speaking with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on the show “Sunday Morning Futures,”
Kennedy said he’s been avoiding criticizing President Biden because he’s trying to bring people together and avoid some of the vitriol and poison that’s made politics so poisonous.
He said he thinks the issues that are now coming up are worrying enough that we need a real investigation of what happened. Kennedy said If what has been reported about Burisma, a notoriously corrupt company, paying out $10 million to Hunter and his father “is true,” then this is “really troubling.”
As well as the need for a thorough investigation, Kennedy warned Americans to be wary of the politicization of federal law enforcement agencies. He also called for a comprehensive investigation of that claim.
He said another harmful tendency to our democracy is the politicization of government agencies that “used to be above politics” but have been “weaponized as political instruments.”
Sean Hannity, host of the Fox News program “Hannity,” claimed during a recent “Hannity” town hall that the FBI’s handling of investigations into and recommendations for prosecution of presidents and presidential candidates who allegedly mishandled sensitive information was inconsistent.
He referred to former FBI director James Comey’s audacious remark in 2016 that “no reasonable prosecutor” would make a case against Hillary for using bleach to erase emails, smashing subpoenaed cell phones and having a hidden hard drive in her bathroom.
Kennedy promised to issue an executive order on his first day in office to combat the purported epidemic of weaponization and politicization inside the federal bureaucracy.
