A former Obama administration official has alleged that then-Vice President Joe Biden was involved in a “kickback scheme” involving his son Hunter Biden’s international business transactions, bringing the Biden family under fire.
Mike McCormick, who served as a White House stenographer for 15 years, claims that the FBI has ignored him despite his willingness to testify before the federal grand jury investigating Biden’s son.
“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,” he said. “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, who worked with Biden from 2011 to 2017, detailed a key dialogue involving the vice president, aide Jake Sullivan and the press on Air Force Two before a trip to Kyiv, Ukraine, on April 21, 2014. Sullivan, who is the current national security adviser, outlined in a White House transcript Biden’s priorities for his trip to the country, which included U.S. investment in the Ukrainian energy sector days after Hunter joined the board of Burisma Months later, and well after the trip, Congress allocated $50 million to Ukraine’s energy market,” the outlet reported.
“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,” the former stenographer said.
“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 said.
Three days prior to his father’s excursion to Ukraine, Hunter Biden joined Burisma, and McCormick claimed that the timeline demonstrated that Biden was sending American money overseas to “enrich” himself and his family.
According to the former stenographer, he has information that directly implicates President Biden and other officials in an influence-peddling conspiracy.
“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 said.
Sen. Chuck Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, revealed last week that the Burisma executive who purportedly paid then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden kept 17 audio recordings of their conversations as a “insurance policy.”
“Grassley, R-Iowa, revealed from the Senate floor Monday what was said to be a redacted reference in the FBI-generated FD-1023 form alleging a criminal bribery scheme between then-Vice President Joe Biden and a foreign national that involved influence over U.S. policy decisions. Grassley said the FD-1023 has a redacted reference that the Burisma executive possesses fifteen audio recordings of phone calls between himself and Hunter Biden,” Fox News reported.

“According to Grassley, the FD-1023 also states that the executive possesses two audio recordings of phone calls between himself and then-Vice President Joe Biden. The recordings were allegedly kept as an “insurance policy” for the foreign national in case he was in some type of ‘tight spot,’ a source told Fox News Digital,” the outlet added. CONTINUE READING…
