“Republicans are demanding that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo turn over a broad scope of unreacted Obama-Biden State Department documents pertaining to the corrupt Ukrainian company which that was at the center of the impeachment inquiry earlier this year against President Donald Trump.
“I write regarding documents that the State Department recently released pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA),” stated Jordan, in a letter to Pompeo on Thursday. “Although these documents are partially redacted, they appear to shed new light on the actions of State Department employees during the Obama-Biden Administration in relation to the corrupt Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, and its founder, Mykola Zlochevsky.”
(…) According to Jordan the State Department documents also reveal that the alleged “whistleblower” who began the partisan impeachment against President Trump “also played a role in facilitating the Obama-Biden Administration’s interactions with the Ukrainian government relating to Burisma and Hunter Biden.”
Jordan told Pompeo that the documents reportedly detail “how the ‘whistleblower,’ as a National Security Council (NSC) detailee, hosted a White House meeting that took place with Ukrainian prosecutors in January 2016 regarding a concern that HunterBiden’s role with Burisma could complicate a potential prosecution of the company’s wrongdoing.”
Moreover, “contemporaneous visitor logs confirm that numerous Ukrainian officials were present at the White House on the day of the meeting,” he added.
(…) The recently redacted documents also reveal information pertaining to former Vice President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, as well as former Secretary John Kerry’s stepson, Christopher Heinz, and Devon Archer, who worked together during that time period.
Jordan referenced a Wall Street Journal story, which revealed that Hunter Biden, Heinz and Archer may have been part “of a broad effort by Burisma to bring in well-connect Democrats during a period when the company was facing investigations backed not just by domestic Ukrainian forces but by officials in the Obama Administration.”
The original stories, which were first published by John Solomon, who was then with The Hill and now with Just The News, focused on Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Burisma Holdings at the same time his father, Vice President Joe Biden, was responsible for the United States’s diplomatic efforts with Ukraine.” (Read more: Sarah A.
