Grassley Releases FBI Form Detailing Biden Bribery Scheme

'It costs 5 to pay one Biden, and 5 to another Biden...'

(Headline USASen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, released an unclassified FBI document Thursday that showed then-Vice President Joe Biden and Hunter Biden allegedly “coerced” Burisma executive Mykola Zlochevsky to pay them millions of dollars for a policy decision.

The document is a FD-1023 form, which Grassley said he obtained from Justice Department whistleblowers. It contains information from an FBI interview with a “highly credible” confidential source who detailed multiple meetings and conversations with a top Burisma executive. 

In the form, Zlochevsky said he has many “text messages and ‘recordings’ that show he was coerced to make such payments” to the Bidens.

The Ukrainian oligarch—who was being investigated for corruption prior to bringing on Hunter Biden and business partner Devon Archer as Burisma board members in 2014— said that in return for the payments he expected the investigation to disappear.

Joe Biden delivered on his end of the bargain, and he publicly boasted during a 2018 Council on Foreign Relations panel about pressuring Ukraine to fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin.

“I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden bragged. “Well, son of a bitch, he got fired.”

The confidential human source told the FBI he first learned of Burisma’s dealings with Biden “in late 2015 or 2016,” during the Obama administration.

He had traveled to Ukraine to meet with Burisma executives about a potential business deal and was asked whether he “was aware of Burisma’s Board of Directors,” which included Hunter Biden.

The executives reportedly admitted to the source that they “hired Hunter Biden ‘to protect us, through his dad, from all kinds of problems,’” according to the form.

“[The source] recalled this meeting took place around the time Joe Biden made a public statement about (former) Ukraine Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin being corrupt, and that he should be fired/removed from office,” the form states.

At one point, Zlochevsky assured the source that he was not worried about Shokin’s investigation into Burisma, saying “Don’t worry Hunter will take care of those issues through his dad,” the form says.

Zlochevsky also allegedly told the source that “it costs 5 [million] to pay one Biden, and 5 [million] to another Biden,” according to the form.

Last month, the House Oversight Committee revealed the existence of an audio recording in which Joe Biden told then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko not to worry about the FBI during the incoming Trump presidency because the agency would assist in covering up any possible corruption.

Since becoming president under dubious circumstances, Biden has rerouted more than $100 billion to Ukraine in support of its war effort with Russia, as well as to cover the pensions and salaries of Ukrainian government officials.
