In relation to Hunter Biden’s international business dealings while he was vice president, a former Obama administration employee asserts that President Biden engaged in a “kickback scheme.”
Former White House stenographer Mike McCormick stated on “Fox & Friends First” that the FBI disregarded his warnings despite his desire to testify before an investigating grand jury.
“In February, I went to the FBI and filed one of their tips on their website. If you do that, and you’re lying to them, you go to jail. I’m not lying. I’m telling the truth, and I’m not going to jail,” McCormick declared on Thursday. “Joe Biden is a criminal. He was conducting malfeasance in office to enrich his family. Jake Sullivan is a conspirator in that, and there’s more… Obama officials involved in it, I believe.”
McCormick worked with Biden from 2011 to 2017 and described a crucial conversation between the vice president, his aide Jake Sullivan, and the press prior to an April 2014 voyage to Kyiv, Ukraine.
Sullivan, who is presently the White House’s national security adviser, outlined Biden’s priorities in a White House transcript, including U.S. investment in the Ukrainian energy sector, according to the New York Post. Later, Hunter joined the board of Burisma.
Congress allocated $50 million to Ukraine’s energy sector shortly after the voyage.
“I’m sitting back there with a tape recorder. Jake Sullivan comes back and somebody asks about fracking. His answer is, well, we’re bringing a lot of American assistance over for fracking. Burisma was the direct beneficiary of that fracking, and that’s what I recorded, and that’s in a White House transcript,” McCormick continued.
“In the transcript, you don’t know who Jake Sullivan is. It’s a senior administration official. I’m the witness that says Jake Sullivan is the guy who said it and he should be investigated because at the time Hunter Biden was on the board of Burisma and Joe Biden is bringing American taxpayer money to enrich that company and himself and his family,” he added.
“Hunter joined the board of the Ukrainian natural gas firm on April 18, just three days before Biden and his team traveled to Kyiv. But that critical piece of the puzzle was not made public until May 12,” according to Fox News.
McCormick argued that the sequence of events implies that Biden funneled U.S. funds overseas to “enrich” himself and his family, as well as used his influence to help his son’s fledgling energy career.
Former stenographer made it plain that he intends to testify under oath before the Delaware grand jury investigating Hunter’s business dealings, which is led by U.S. Attorney David Weiss.
Since 2018, the federal government has been investigating Hunter for suspected tax and foreign lobbying violations.
After suspicious activity reports (SARs) concerning suspicious foreign transactions were detected, the investigation into Hunter’s alleged violations commenced.
These SARs involved money routed from “China and other foreign nations,” according to sources with knowledge of the investigation.
Moreover, despite previous reports indicating that the investigation is nearing a critical juncture, the Republican subpoena power is likely to accelerate the investigation.
“If David Weiss can’t have me in front of his grand jury explaining what I know as a witness, that’s a fraudulent grand jury,” McCormick asserted. “It’s a fraudulent use of the American judicial system to cover for Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s crimes in office.”
Biden has asserted on multiple occasions that he has not discussed Hunter’s international business transactions with him.
In relation to the alleged influence-peddling scandal, McCormick stated that the information he possesses implicates Biden and likely additional officials with whom he worked.
“If I went in there, I would tell them to have Barack Obama called in as a witness because he’s part of the conspiracy. He’s an ex-president. He has to answer who was in charge of this, putting Joe Biden into this role? Did Barack Obama know about it?” McCormick asked.
“There’s evidence I’ve seen and put in my Substack on April 16th, so two days before Hunter joins Joe Biden is with Hunter in the West Wing. They have a meeting, and then later that day in the evening, Joe Biden spends a day in the limousine in the back of Barack Obama’s limousine in western Pennsylvania,” he added.
