Ukrainian Prosecutor Says Biden Got Him Fired

Viktor Shokin argues that Joe Biden was behind his dismissal because Burisma wanted him gone.

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Donald Trump was impeached for what Joe Biden actually did.

Yeah, okay. We’ve written that a lot more than once. Well, over the weekend, former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, the guy Biden bragged about getting fired, spoke about the Biden Crime Family’s role in his firing.

But first…

(Note: In the opening text in the video, 2006 should read 2016.)

Right there on video at a Council on Foreign Relations event in 2018, Biden claimed he went to Ukraine and threatened “we’re not going to give you the billion dollars … if the prosecutor is not fired.” He claimed it was because Shokin wasn’t being aggressive enough in investigating corruption, which the American Leftmedia bought hook, line, and sinker. Others of us surmise that Shokin was getting a little too close to Burisma and the Biden connection for comfort.

There’s evidence of that, too. Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky, founder of Burisma, told the FBI — as revealed back in July in that buried form congressional Republicans managed to unearth — that his company offered $5 million each to Joe and Hunter Biden if Shokin was fired. It’s unclear if the money was ever disbursed, but if it was, it could have been funneled through one or more of those numerous Biden shell companies.

The “fact-checkers” scrambled to Biden’s defense back in 2020 when Trump alleged the corruption surrounding Shokin’s firing, vigorously denying that what Biden said on video had anything to do with his son.

How much do you trust the “fact-checkers”? Refusing to connect the dots isn’t the same thing as proving they can’t be connected.

Back to Shokin. To be sure, he has been accused of corruption while operating in one of the most corrupt countries on planet earth, so take his word with a grain of salt. But he flatly blamed the Bidens for his firing.

In a Fox News interview with Brian Kilmeade, Shokin said through a translator:

I have said repeatedly in my previous interviews that [then-Ukrainian President Petro] Poroshenko fired me at the insistence of the then Vice President Biden because I was investigating Burisma. …

[Poroshenko] understood and so did Vice President Biden that had I continued to oversee the Burisma investigation, we would have found the facts about the corrupt activities that they were engaging in. That included both Hunter Biden and Devon Archer and others. …

I do not want to deal in unproven facts, but my firm personal conviction is that, yes, this was the case. They were being bribed. And the fact that Joe Biden gave away $1 billion in U.S. money in exchange for my dismissal, my firing — isn’t that alone a case of corruption?

As for any White House response, spokesperson Ian Sams huffed, “For years, these false claims have been debunked, and no matter how much air time Fox gives them, they will remain false.” That claim is false, and if the media were honest, the “fact-checkers” would be all over it. We already noted that there’s actual evidence for Shokin’s claim. That includes Devon Archer’s congressional testimony and Biden’s own boast.

By the way, Shokin also says he was poisoned. Twice. Kilmeade’s team found the medical records to prove it.

In any case, we know the Leftmedia’s only interest is in protecting Biden, so if any journalists ever do look into this, it’ll be years from now.

Oh well. Maybe Sweetheart Special Counsel David Weiss will get to the bottom of it.

Or maybe pigs will fly.
