Biden: “It’s a bunch of malarkey.”
Sources told Fox News that an FBI -generated FD-1023 form shows a Burisma Holdings executive paid then-Vice President $5 million when Hunter sat on its board:
The FD-1023 form, dated June 30, 2020, is the FBI’s interview with a “highly credible” confidential source who detailed multiple meetings and conversations he or she had with a top Burisma executive over the course of several years, starting in 2015. Fox News Digital has not seen the form, but it was described by several sources who are aware of its contents.
An FD-1023 form is used by FBI agents to record unverified reporting from confidential human sources. The form is used to document information as told to an FBI agent, but recording that information does not validate or weigh it against other information known by the FBI.
Hunter started on the Burisma board after President Barack Obama appointed Joe as the go-to guy for Ukraine talks after the country kicked out puppet President Yanukovych.
The executive wanted the confidential source to give advice on how the Ukrainian energy company could weasel its way into the U.S. energy system by gaining rights and involvement with an American company:
According to the FD-1023 form, the confidential human source said the Burisma executive discussed Hunter’s role on the board. The confidential human source questioned why the Burisma executive needed his or her advice in acquiring access to U.S. oil if he had Hunter Biden on the board. The Burisma executive answered by referring to Hunter Biden as “dumb.”
The Burisma executive explained to the confidential source that Burisma had to “pay the Bidens” because Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin was investigating Burisma, and explained how difficult it would be to enter the U.S. market in the midst of that investigation.
The confidential source further detailed that conversation, suggesting to the Burisma executive that he “pay the Bidens $50,000 each,” to which the Burisma executive replied, it is “not $50,000,” it is “$5 million.”
“$5 million for one Biden, $5 million for the other Biden,” the Burisma executive told the confidential human source, according to a source familiar with the document.
The source told Fox News that the confidential source “believes that the $5 million payment to Joe Biden and the $5 million payment to Hunter Biden occurred, based on his or her conversations with the Burisma executive.”
But the executive is smart because he paid Joe and Hunter through numerous bank accounts. The source believes it would take the feds “at least 10 years” to pin it all down.
The document also says “the Big Guy,” which supposedly means Joe Biden. The executive told the source he “didn’t pay the Big Guy directly.”
It’s all funny to Biden:
BIDEN: “I’m supposed to walk off the stage now.
But wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.”
REPORTER: “The bribery allegation, Congresswoman Nancy Mace says there’s damning evidence in an FBI file that you sold out the country. Do you have a response to congressional Republicans?”
BIDEN: “Where’s the money? I’m joking.”
REPORTER: “Mr. President —“
