KYIV - According to Ukrainian news service Interfax, Joe Biden--and not just his son Hunter--was paid for "consulting services" by energy company Burisma.
If true, this marks the end of a scandal-ridden run for Biden.
Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received $900,000 for lobbying activities from Burisma Group, Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada member Andriy Derkach said citing investigation materials, reported Interfax-Ukraine today in Kyiv.
"This was the transfer of Burisma Group's funds for lobbying activities, as investigators believe, personally to Joe Biden through a lobbying company. Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to the U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which according to open sources, in particular, the New York Times, is affiliated with Biden. The payment reference was payment for consultative services," Derkach said.
He also publicized sums that were transferred to Burisma Group representatives, in particular Hunter Biden, a son of the former U.S. vice president.
"According to the documents, Burisma paid no less than $16.5 million to [former Polish President, who became an independent director at Burisma Holdings in 2014] Aleksander Kwasniewski, [chairman of the Burisma board of independent directors] Alan Apter, [Burisma independent director] Devon Archer and Hunter Biden [who joined the Burisma board of directors in 2014]," Derkach said.
"Using political and economic levelers of influencing Ukrainian authorities and manipulating the issue of providing financial aid to Ukraine, Joe Biden actively assisted closing criminal cases into the activity of former Ukrainian Ecology Minister Mykola Zlochevsky, who is the founder and owner of Burisma Group," he said.

If proven to be true, the Democrats will be toast in 2020.
WHEN was Biden paid the purported $900,000? Was it while he was Vice President? THAT is the critical issue.
Of course it was That is the whole point
It doesn't matter when--the man has already said he has no ties to the company, and he's said he's not had influence over the company when it came to Hunter's dealings.
No, that's not it. Now hear this: According to today's Wall Street Journal and its resident, sell out, establishment, opinion page editor and columnist Dan Henninger, it's total war on the American people, World War Trump. That's the strategy being employed by the Democrats working in in concert with the establishment's main stream media.
Together, they plan to so wear out the American public that the voters will simply cave in proving unable to stand up to the constant squabbling, give up and dis-elect Trump in 2020. They intend to wear us out, wear us down, work on the inability of the weakest among us to stand up to the daily, dissonant squabbling, which they intend to manufacture and pump out over the airwaves. How does that make you feel? It makes me very angry.
So here it is in plain English even the densest among us should be able to understand. They reckon they have whittled down the attention span of the average citizen enough, worn down our ability to absorb reality as opposed to the entertainment dribble and dis-associative trash and distraction they feed us daily, that we will cave in and give up all pretense and desire for self government, freedom and the prosperity of a Trump Presidency. The calculation being the promise of peace and quiet will be enough to persuade us to accede to becoming peasants, supplicants and third world units of labor on their global plantations.
Someone needs to tell these arrogant, billionaire despots and corporate tyrants we will never go back. No, actually we all need to tell them. If we are unable to control our own destiny, then we have become slaves and more. We have condemned our own children and all future generations to the yoke of slavery.
No, that's not the critical point at all. The critical point is that it was a pay off whether it went to him, or his son and whenever the actual payments occurred. He sold his office, that's the critical point. He leveraged his office and his official duties when even the appearance of such should be enough to throw him in the docket.
It is obvious that to be a DemocRAT, one must be a cheat, liar and a crook.
Everyone in Obama's hierarchy was shoveling illegal money into their offshore accounts. Pelosi has dirty hands. Hillary is pure dirt. Kerry is swimming in mud. Biden is a slimy dirt bag. Obama will be raking in the cash for years to come. Billions of foreign dollars and taxpayer's money has been transferred into the hands of the dirtiest administration that ever existed. "Never a scandal in my administration". My arse.
Obama......what a scum bag. I canceled Netflix because of said scum bag.
Just exactly. Just so and no mistake lads, no mistake.
WHERE DID UKRAINE GET THE MONEY TO PAY THE BIDENS? If from US aid, then Joe and Hunter are guilty of embezzlement of government funds................a felony.
Hang all The Traitors by The Neck until Dead ..invest in rope manufacturers ..need to hang millions...
Should we put Biden in the same seat as Manafort? 16.5 million? Not bad Biden, Not bad.
Did I miss something? When was Paul Manafort elevated to Vice President? That's one of the things that cracks me up about all this crap. Dems? VP, Attorney General(s), Secretary(s) of State, Heads of the FBI. The people they supposedly nailed attached to Trump? Peripheral campaign advisors. Does anyone else see a stark difference in degree here?
Psalm 92:6 A brutish man knoweth not, neither doth a fool understand this:
7 when the wicked spring up as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish, it is that they shall be destroyed for ever;
8 but Thou, Lord, art Most High for evermore.
Trump nailed it when he called him, "Quid Pro Quo Joe".
Stick a fork in him, he's done!!
Watch the lying dems and their lapdog media sweep this under the rug.

Well Joe, time to hit the skids. You've had a good run at it, but it's caught up to you, and now it's ready to bite you in the a**. So long Joe, it's been good to know ya.
