Money is the root of all evil.

Ukrainian officials on Saturday announced they intercepted a $6 million bribe attempt to stop a criminal investigation into the president of Burisma, the natural-gas company at the center of President Trump’s impeachment investigation.
At a news conference, the officials displayed large bags of seized U.S. currency.
Ukraine’s anti-corruption prosecutor Nazar Kholodnitsky said former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, who once held a board seat, was not complicit in the bribe attempt.
Kholodnitsky and the head of the national anti-corruption bureau, Artem Sytnik, said the bribe was intended to encourage their offices to halt a probe of Mykola Zlochevsky, the head of Burisma and a former minister of ecology. Zlochevsky was accused of using his ministerial position for personal enrichment.
Three people, including a high-ranking tax service official, have been detained in connection with the attempted bribe, officials said Saturday.
In a statement, Burisma claimed the company had nothing to do with any bribe attempt.
“Neither Burisma Group President Mykola Zlochevsky nor other employees of the company have any relationship to the voiced events,” the company said. “Mykola Zlochevsky didn’t ask for anyone to commit wrong actions and never contributed to such actions.”
Burisma, one of Ukraine’s largest private gas producers, has been at the center of politically tinged allegations in the United States, with Joe Biden challenging Trump in this year’s election.
Hunter Biden joined the Burisma board in 2014, when his father was still vice president and the main figure in U.S. relations with Ukraine. He left the position in 2018.
Last year, critics said Trump pressured new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate the Bidens, in a phone call that sparked demands for his impeachment. The Senate acquitted him this past February.
Former Ukrainian prosecutor-general Viktor Shokin has alleged he was pushed out by Joe Biden’s delaying of a $1 billion loan to the country, to prevent him from investigating Hunter Biden’s role at Burisma. But, Joe Biden said he pushed for Shokin’s dismissal to encourage Ukraine’s anti-corruption efforts.
There is good reason for Burisma Group President Zlochevsky to deny everything.
Hunter Biden was the point of the spear in a Foreign Policy scandal which is just a small part of what will go down as the most corrupt Presidential Administration in history, making the Warren G. Harding Teapot Dome Scandal pale in comparison.
All of this boggles the mind. Think about it:
The Clinton Foundation Pay-for-Play
The Bidens’ misuse of the power of the Vice-President for personal gain
President Barack Hussein Obama’s $150 billion bribe of the murderous Mullahs of Iran which included hosting Radical Islamists like the late (Thank God) Gen. Quassem Soleimani at the White House
The trading of Muslim Terrorists for the traitorous Bowe Bergdahl
And, of course “Spygate”, the Steele Dossier, and the unmasking of Gen. Flynn
It is looking more and more as if this whole continuous attack on President Trump…the Special Counsel’s “Russian Collusion” investigation and the hurried Democratic Sham Impeachment are all part of a strategy to cover up the out-of-control corruption, both foreign and domestic, which took place during the Obama Administration with the knowledge and consent of President Barack Hussein Obama, himself.
That would certainly explain the Democrats’ over-the-top reaction to losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their vicious rhetoric and unconstitutional political actions and schemes since.
The Republican Senate’s talk about launching a full investigation into Former Vice-President Biden’s misuse of the powers of his office on his son’s behalf need to be replaced with action.
President Trump was right all along.
I hope that they begin to issue subpoenas, including asking the Burisma Group President to appear before the United States Senate.
If the dots can be connected in the case of Hunter Biden’s and his father’s corruption and the Obama’s White House and their Foreign Policy, it could be abosolutely huge.
If our Sovereign Nation is to survive, this out-of-control political corruption, perpetrated on behalf of a Shadow Government by Deep State Operatives, must be dealt with and those responsible brought to justice.
No matter to whom the trail of corruption leads.
By the way, where IS Hunter Biden?
Until He Comes,
