Former Ukrainian Official Says Joe and Hunter Biden Were Bribed

A former Ukrainian official said during a Saturday interview that he believes President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden were bribed.

Former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin shared the comments on Fox News' "One Nation."

“I do not want to deal in unproven facts, but my firm personal conviction is that, yes, this was the case,” Shokin replied through the translator.

“They were being bribed. And the fact that Joe Biden gave away $1 billion in U.S. money in exchange for my dismissal, my firing — isn’t that alone a case of corruption?” he said.

Shokin also addressed the claims of illegal activities in deals with Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

“I have no doubt that there were illegal activities engaged in by Burisma,” he told Fox News’ “One Nation” host Brian Kilmeade.

“It continued to expand and Zlochevsky, who at the time held the post of minister … started bringing in people who could provide protection for him. Hunter Biden was among them and the corruption network expanded as a result,” he said.

Shokin also claims he was forced out of office in 2016 under the insistence of then-Vice President Biden.

The words could have a strong impact on the Biden investigation as the House returns to session next month with Republicans considering impeachment proceedings against the president. The report is also significant as Ukraine is the center of a conflict involving Russia and Western nations that oppose its invasion of the former Soviet republic.

The coming weeks could see Shokin's testimony becoming a key part of the investigation that seeks to show evidence of the president and his son being involved in bribery situations as the information grows against the Biden family.
