BIDEN FACES RENEWED SCRUTINY OVER SON’S RELATIONSHIP TO UKRAINIAN GAS COMPANY

by Nick Givas, The Daily Caller:

  • Hunter Biden was appointed to the board of directors of a Ukranian company as part of an effort to recruit well-connected Americans while the company was under investigation, according to The New York Times.
  • Then-Vice President Joe Biden played a role in pressuring Ukraine to oust the country’s top prosector, Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the company, Burisma.
  • Shokin’s successor initially ended the investigation into Burisma, but decided in March 2019 to reopen it.

A Ukrainian gas company gave a seat on its board to the son of former Vice President Joe Biden in an attempt to secure relationships with Democrats while it was under multiple investigations, according to a recent New York Times report.
