FBI Informant Told Agents Hunter Biden Hired by Burisma to ‘Protect’ Ukrainian Firm from

by John Solomon


A trusted FBI informant told agents in 2020 that Hunter Biden was hired by a Ukrainian energy company dealing with corruption allegations during his father’s vice presidency to help “protect” Burisma Holdings from problems including an effort to “take care of’” a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating the company for corruption, according to an explosive document released by Sen. Charles Grassley on Thursday.

“They hired Hunter Biden to protect us, through his dad, from all kinds of problems,” the informant reported to the FBI that a top Burisma official named Vadim Pojarskii told the informant during a meeting while Joe Biden was still vice president, according to the FD-1023 confidential human source report Grassley, R-Iowa, released.

The informant also reported that Burisma had asked Hunter Biden to help get the top prosecutor in Ukraine, Victor Shokin, sidelined because he was investigating the firm for corruption and interfering with Burisma’s effort to buy a U.S. firm.

“Shokin’s investigation into Burisma, which was made public at this time, it would have a substantial negative impact on Burisma’s prospective IPO in the United States,” the report alleged. “Zlochevsky replied something to the effect of, ‘Don’t worry Hunter will take care of all of those issues through his dad.’”

Joe Biden has admitted he forced Shokin’s firing in late 2015 and early 2016 by threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees from Ukraine. The prosecutor was fired, but Biden has adamantly denied he did so to help his son’s company.

The informant also revealed that Burisma officials had become frustrated by Hunter Biden’s performance.

“Pojarskii replied that Hunter Biden was not smart, and they wanted to get additional counsel,” the FBI reported. “The group then had a general conversation about whether the purchase/merger with a US company would be a good business decision.”
