Solomon: New docs show constant contact between Burisma and Obama state dept, contradict officials’ testimony

Burisma, the shady firm that presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter worked at for years, has returned to the spotlight despite fervent attempts by Democrat politicians, their media allies, and State Department employees to bury it, and the evidence appears even more damning than before.

Documents uncovered by investigative reporter John Solomon thanks to a Freedom of Information Act request filed against the State Department allegedly prove that the Obama administration had been in constant contact with Burisma.

The documents also allegedly prove that State Department officials had lied to Congress last year when they claimed they hadn’t been in contact with Burisma.

All of this was revealed by Solomon during an appearance Wednesday evening on Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight.”

Listen:

“[T]here are documents that were kept from the Senate … that show that Burisma was in constant contact with the embassy in Ukraine and with the State Department in Washington that contradicts and conflicts with the very testimony State Department officials gave last January during the impeachment trial,” Solomon said.

“It turns out they had non-stop contact with Burisma. Their lobbyists were cornering them at confirmation hearings, at events. There were meetings at the embassy, meetings in the headquarters of Washington. And Hunter Biden’s company was pressuring the Obama State Department to make those corruption allegations go away.”

Those corruption charges are at the center of allegations that Hunter had levied his father’s political power to protect Burisma from being scrutinized by the authorities.

“That’s a narrative that the Democrats have tried to hide for the last 18 months,” Solomon continued, adding that some Republicans are helping them do exactly that.

Although Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson has been relentlessly trying to investigate the Burisma debacle, he’s faced pushback and obstruction from some of his Republican colleagues pictured below:

“I think the senators need to know what’s been found by this investigation — that State Department officials are confirming on the record in testimony that Joe Biden and Hunter Biden engaged in a prohibited conflict of interest,” Solomon continued.

“I also am hearing from sources inside the U.S. government … that the committee recently obtained records showing that certain transactions involving the Biden family were flagged as suspicious by intelligence and financial overseers in the government.”

“Those are the sort of things that when they get to the public, maybe it’ll change the mind of some of those senators who’ve been dragging their feet and keeping Ron Johnson and [Senate Finance Committee chair] Chuck Grassley from doing their job.”

Ideally yes, but it seems many Republicans have fed into the media-concocted lie, as Johnson himself reportedly put it later Wednesday evening on Fox News’ “The Story,” that “there is ‘no evidence of wrongdoing or illegal activity’ related to Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board.”

“I could not disagree more. A brief summary of the timeline of events in Ukraine will support my assessment,” the senator added.

Part of the problem, Solomon speculated on FBN, is that congressional Republicans are suffering “political PTSD” from the Democrats’ sham impeachment trial.

“When we first started writing about Ukraine a year ago, it led to the impeachment proceedings, and people don’t want to go through that again,” he said.

Indeed. The sham impeachment was based entirely on the debunked theory that President Donald Trump had reached out to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to obtain information on Biden’s alleged corruption so that he could use that information to hurt Biden’s chances in the 2020 race.

It never even crossed the Democrats’ minds that he’d reached out to Zelensky because he really was — and still is — concerned about the Biden family’s scurrilous activities.

“The Democrats threw a false bogus allegation against all of us — myself included — but the truth is if you stick and follow these facts, those Republicans will find it’s their duty to uncover this conflict of interest and this corruption that went on inside our State Department,” Solomon added.

He concluded his remarks by sharing his prediction that three of “Lou Dobbs’ RINO Suspects,” sans full-time “traitor” Mitt Romney, will change their minds once Johnson releases the latest findings.

“I predict as soon as Sen. Johnson starts putting out this information, those three senators are going to turn around. That’s my prediction right now.”

He noted though that it’s quite a shame that the elected congressmen must “be led by the nose to those facts they have not been reading.”
