John Solomon just wrecked the entire Democratic impeachment inquiry in one fell swoop.
The alleged phone call Trump made to restart the Biden investigation was in July. However, Ukraine reopened the Biden investigation in February, five full months before the phone call.
Why would Trump have to threaten Ukraine to do something they were already doing? He wouldn’t, of course. Solomon is a solid source who does not use opinions or theories but works with hard facts. His work is impeccable. He appeared on Hannity on Tuesday night and brought the documents proving his case onto the program with him. NABU, the Ukrainian FBI requested permission to reopen the investigation into Burisma and received approval in February of 2019.
A newly unearthed document shows that Ukrainian officials had opened a new probe into the firm linked to Hunter Biden months before President Trump’s phone call with that country’s leader, Fox News contributor John Solomon reported late Tuesday.
Solomon said Tuesday on “Hannity” that the U.S. government knew Ukraine was planning to look again into activities at Burisma Holdings, an energy company that employed then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son as a member of its board of directors, early this year. The report is noteworthy because President Trump has been accused by Democrats of threatening in July to withhold foreign aid to Ukraine unless its new president pursued an investigation into the company and the younger Biden’s role there.
“The U.S. government had open-source intelligence and was aware as early as February of 2019 that the Ukrainian government was planning to reopen the Burisma investigation,” he claimed. “This is long before the president ever imagined having a call with President Zelensky,” he added, noting Petro Poroshenko was still Ukraine’s president at that time.
Solomon said the information he obtained, including documents shown on “Hannity” Tuesday, was omitted from a U.S. intelligence community whistleblower’s complaint lodged against Trump last month.
