Report: Newly Revealed Documents Blow Up Biden’s Ukraine Story

A new report for The Hill by award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon presents details from “hundreds of pages of never-released memos and documents,” many from inside the American team helping the company at the center of the Biden-Ukraine controversy, that “conflict” with Joe Biden’s claim that he pressured Ukraine to remove its top prosecutor because he was failing to weed out corruption, rather than the prosecutor’s investigation into the company paying Hunter Biden some $600,000 a year.

While Biden maintains that he only strong-armed Ukraine to replace its chief prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, because of allegations of his corruption and mishandling of his job — not because of Shokin’s investigation into Burisma Holdings, which hired Biden’s son just weeks after President Obama appointed Biden to oversee U.S.-Ukraine relations — Solomon found that previously undisclosed documents “conflict with Biden’s narrative.”

“Hundreds of pages of never-released memos and documents — many from inside the American team helping Burisma to stave off its legal troubles — conflict with Biden’s narrative,” Solomon reported Thursday. “And they raise the troubling prospect that U.S. officials may have painted a false picture in Ukraine that helped ease Burisma’s legal troubles and stop prosecutors’ plans to interview Hunter Biden during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”

Solomon reports:

For instance, Burisma’s American legal representatives met with Ukrainian officials just days after Biden forced the firing of the country’s chief prosecutor and offered ‘an apology for dissemination of false information by U.S. representatives and public figures’ about the Ukrainian prosecutors, according to the Ukrainian government’s official memo of the meeting. The effort to secure that meeting began the same day the prosecutor’s firing was announced.

In addition, Burisma’s American team offered to introduce Ukrainian prosecutors to Obama administration officials to make amends, according to that memo and the American legal team’s internal emails.
