Monday night, a new report hit the internet that is completely blowing Joe Biden’s defense against Hunter Biden’s business dealings to shreds.
The report is based on a newly revealed memo showing Burisma contacting the Obama administration to end the allegations of corruption against the company.
Contacting the Obama Administration
According to the report, Burisma reached out to Undersecretary of State Catherine A. Novelli in February 2016.
The report comes from investigative reporter John Solomon.
Solomon states, “Just three weeks before Burisma’s overture to State, Ukrainian authorities raided the home of the oligarch who owned the gas firm and employed Hunter Biden, a signal the long-running corruption probe was escalating in the middle of the U.S. presidential election.
“Hunter Biden’s name, in fact, was specifically invoked by the Burisma representative as a reason the State Department should help, according to a series of email exchanges among U.S. officials trying to arrange the meeting.”
There was also an email between State Department officials in late February outlining the request.
The email reads:
“Per our conversation, Karen Tramontano of Blue Star Strategies requested a meeting to discuss with U/S Novelli USG remarks alleging Burisma (Ukrainian energy company) of corruption. She noted that two high profile U.S. citizens are affiliated with the company (including Hunter Biden as a board member). Tramontano would like to talk with U/S Novelli about getting a better understanding of how the U.S. came to the determination that the company is corrupt. According to Tramontano there is no evidence of corruption, has been no hearing or process, and evidence to the contrary has not been considered. Would appreciate any background you may be able to provide on this issue and suggested TPs for U/S Novelli’s meeting.”
On the contents of the memo, Solomon stated, “Tramontano was a lawyer working for Blue Star Strategies, a Washington firm that was hired by Burisma to help end a long-running corruption investigation against the gas firm in Ukraine.
“Tramontano and another Blue Star official, Sally Painter, both alumni of Bill Clinton’s administration, worked with New York-based criminal defense attorney John Buretta to settle the Ukraine cases in late 2016 and 2017.”
Along Comes Daddy
All of this back and forth occurred in February and there was an alleged meeting set up between the Burisma official and Tramontano, although there is no evidence that meeting actually took place.
However, Solomon stated that a meeting did occur with then-Secretary of State John Kerry and Hunter Biden’s business partner, Devon Archer.
Then, Joe Biden traveled to Ukraine later in March 2016, which is when he threatened Ukraine to fire the prosecutor that was reportedly investigating Burisma.
This information clearly makes it appear as though the entire thing was orchestrated to protect Hunter Biden.
And, if the Undersecretary of State and John Kerry both knew about this and Hunter Biden’s name was invoked by the Burisma official, it stands to reason that someone would have apprised Joe Biden of the situation, proving him to be a liar… again.
Democrats are going to try to continue to hang Trump over this phone call but it is becoming quite clear that Joe Biden and the Obama administration were complicit in all of this.
