So, Hunter Biden may not be the only Biden to cash in from Burisma Holdings. Ukrainian lawmaker Andrey Derkach says that Joe Biden was paid $900,000 for what he called consulting services. He brought along charts showing the payment being sent to U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which according to open sources, in particular, the New York Times, is affiliated with Biden.
Rudy Giuliani is in Kiev this week meeting with former and present Ukrainian officials including the prosecutor that Joe Biden got fired for investigating his son, Hunter. Hunter Biden is said to have received as much as $83,000 a month for doing practically nothing but being a Biden. Giuliani is President Trump’s private attorney.
An independent Ukrainian lawmaker said on Thursday he had met U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer in Kiev to discuss the alleged misuse of U.S. taxpayer money by Ukrainian state bodies.
In a statement on Facebook accompanied by photos of the meeting, Andriy Derkach said the two had discussed the creation of an interparliamentary group to fight corruption.
As Trump faces an impeachment inquiry led by House of Representative Democrats into whether he abused his office by pressing Ukraine to investigate a political rival, the U.S. president and his allies have sought to reject that by saying Trump is interested in the wider issue of corruption in Ukraine.
As first reported by the New York Times, lawyer Rudy Giuliani has traveled to Budapest and Kiev this week to meet current and former Ukrainian officials for a documentary series amid the ongoing impeachment inquiry.
The meetings also include a former top prosecutor whose activities were documented in a whistleblower report that sparked the impeachment inquiry.
Giuliani could not be reached for immediate comment.
