A top non-government-organization (NGO) watchdog that investigates and exposes government and political corruption announced that this week it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) federal lawsuit for any and all records regarding the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor after then-Vice President Joe Biden threatened to withhold aid.
The lawsuit from Judicial Watch was filed against the U.S. Department of State. According to several investigators, including former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Joe diGenova and his wife, former White House legal advisor Victoria Toensing,
Biden forced the Ukrainian government under threat of being bilked out of a billion dollars to terminate its criminal investigation of Hunter Biden and fire the prosecutor pursuing the case.
The lawsuit was filed in federal court after the State Department’s failure to respond to a May 7, 2019, FOIA request seeking access to the following records:
- Any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to Viktor Shokin’s investigation of Mykola Zolchevsky and Shokin’s resignation as Ukraine’s Prosecutor General.
- Any and all records of communication between any official, employee, or representative of the Department of State and any official, employee, or representative of the Office of the Vice President regarding Viktor Shokin.
In a widely distributed video seen by many Americans, but ignored by news media outlets their puppetmasters, Joe Biden not only confirmed that he had successfully pressured — under the threat of Obama’s administration withholding $1 billion in U.S. government aid — the Ukrainian government to fire the prosecutor Mr. Shokin. The Ukrainian prosecutor had reportedly launched an investigation into Burisma, which had purportedly paid Biden’s son Hunter $50,000 a month.
The Burisma Group is an energy exploration and production company operating in the Ukrainian oil and gas market since 2002. The head office is in Limassol, Cyprus. History. Burisma Group was founded in 2002 by Ukrainian businessman Mykola Zlochevsky and Nikolay Lysin.
While Biden and the other Democrats running for president as well as the vast majority of the members of the Democratic Party and a few liberal-left Republicans are hawks when it comes to ending the use of fossil fuels and other environmental issues, the Biden family and other elitists are enjoying the financial benefits of energy production and exploration.
“The latest assault on President Trump is an obvious attempt to protect Joe Biden from the corruption scandals involving his son,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Judicial Watch’s latest lawsuit will be the first of many to try to get to the bottom of this influence-peddling scandal.”
