On Thursday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene held an emergency event after reading the FBI’s FD-1023 form, that alleges a bribery scheme involving Joe Biden during his days as vice president, revealing that payments were made to the Biden family by Burisma, the Ukrainian oil company which Hunter Biden sat on the board of.
"Back in 2015/2016, Burisma was looking to buy a US-based oil and gas company, and this came from being advised by Hunter Biden and his partners. Biden said [Viktor] Shokin was corrupt. This was around the time of this meeting, [which] was when Joe Biden, as vice president, said that prosecutor Shokin was corrupt."
"They hired Hunter on the board to make the problems go away. That’s what they specifically said. Hunter advised that they could raise more money if they bought a US company."
Greene stated that the informant was "trying to do the right thing and trying to advise Burisma that they shouldn't go this route," that they should instead hire an attorney to "work out their problems that they were being investigated for because they were having other legal problems."
"And that’s why they were being investigated by this prosecutor Shokin. The informant was advising them, don’t go this route, why would you buy another US company while you’re under investigation? That’s not a good idea," said Greene.
Greene said that the owner of Burisma "said that Hunter was stupid and that his other business partner was smart."
"He also said that he paid $5 million to one Biden and he paid $5 million to another Biden. And it was all a bribery to get Shokin fired and end the investigation into Burisma."
The Burisma owner also told the informant that this was a common practice in Russia and Ukraine. "It’s common practice, it’s part of business there. That’s how their culture works, that they will pay bribery money in order to get business deals done, and that many businesses, they take that into account, they put it in their budget, basically, when they’re preparing to buy another company or start another company, that’s just normal."
"And so over in Ukraine, for them to consider hiring Hunter Biden on the board in order to make their problems go away, which was the prosecutor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma for corruption and legal problems," Greene added.
Greene said that this "was definitely illegal for a vice president of the United States and their family members."
When asked by the informant if he was "happy" that Trump won the 2016 election, Greene said that the owner of Burisma said he was not.
"Remember, he had invested a lot of money in two Bidens to make his problems go away. But he did say that it would take 10 years for all of us to find out the payments made to the Bidens because of how many bank accounts there were."
At the time, he said that there "were no payments to the big guy," but in later meetings, he told the informant that he had two pieces of evidence showing proof of payment to Hunter and Jue Biden.
"You see, I think what everyone needs to understand is, the business owner, whether they’re good or bad, whether they perform their business in a legal manner or correct manner, they always keep records of their business." Burisma "kept a record, especially on the brides," Greene said.
Greene said that what she read was "shocking," adding that "we are going to continue following this investigation. We’re going to continue to look into every single thing that we can uncover. We need the FBI to keep cooperating with us. That’s extremely important.
The Georgia Congresswoman said she had "high expectations" that FBI Director Christopher Wray would "do the right thing and show us the information that we’re asking for," but said that she is "upset" that the "FBI doesn’t think the American people are worthy of this unclassified information. I certainly do."
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
