Unfortunate Son: Muddied Waters of Ukraine’s Gas Company Burisma & Hunter Biden’s Quid-pro-Quo

US  14:00 28.10.2019

by Ekaterina Blinova

While it is not unusual for the offspring of prominent politicians to capi- talise on their family’s name, the story of Hunter, the son of former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, has all the hallmarks of an international political scandal ironically brought to light by the Dems’ impeachment effort against Trump.

”Don’t worry about investors – we’ve got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden”, according to Politico, these words were said by the politician’s younger brother, James Biden, when he and his nephew Hunter embarked on a business venture in 2006.…

The two bought Paradigm Global Advisors, a hedge fund, at the time when Joseph Biden, who represented Delaware in the US Senate from 1973, was a few months away from assuming a position on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and throwing his hat into the ring during the 2007/2008 presidential election cycle.

By that time Hunter had behind him experience at the Delaware bank MBNA that hired him fresh from Yale Law School in 1996, a few years at the US Department of Commerce, and time spent as a lobbyist at Oldaker, Biden & Belair.

Managing Paradigm Global Advisors was not smooth for the Bidens: the hedge fund repeatedly found itself in troubled waters, accused of both alleged and confirmed frauds.…

So, in 2010 the uncle and the nephew began unwinding the firm.

Rosemont Seneca, the next endeavour co-founded by Hunter Biden, Christopher Heinz and Devon Archer in 2010 proved much more successful. It managed to strike a $1 billion private equity deal with a state-owned Bank of China subsidiary in December 2013 and gain over $3 million from Ukraine’s Burisma Holding in 2015. The striking of lucrative deals by Hunter Biden coincided with his father’s tenure as US vice president under Barack Obama.

Burisma Holdings’ Muddied Waters

At the time Hunter Biden joined Burisma,the holding had been facing legal difficulties with the UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) freezing $23 million in accounts belonging to the company’s co-founder, former Ukrainian parliamentarian and government official Mykola Zlochevskiy, under suspicion of corruption.

Zlochevsky established Burisma as an off-shore company in Cyprus in 2002. While serving as a chairman of the State Committee for Natural Resources from 2003 to 2005 under president Leonid Kuchma and then as minister of environmental protec-tion and minister of the environment and natural resources from 2010 to 2012 under President Viktor Yanukovich, Zlochevsky managed to get over three dozen licenses for hydrocarbon production. This allowed his company to embark on gas production in Ukraine’s main basins starting from 2006.

The SFO insisted that the former politician’s assets were ”unlawfully acquired as a result of misconduct in public office”.

Burisma Holdings has always been anything but transparent. The company does not disclose its financial results, while its site does not contain any information concer-ning its asset history,registration data or financial accounts. While the holding names KPMG – one of the Big Four accounting organisations, along with Deloitte, Ernst & Young, and PricewaterhouseCoopers – as its auditor, it does not release audited statements of its financial condition.

The New Yorker recalled that before joining the holding’s board in April 2014, Hunter Biden recommended that New York -based law firm Boies Schiller Flexner where he was ”of counsel” assessed Burisma’s ”history of corruption”. To that end Boies Schil-ler hired the investigative agency Nardello & Co. Three months after Biden assumed a director position in Burisma Nardello warned in a draft report that Zlochevsky could be ”vulnerable to investigation for financial crimes” and for ”perceived abuse of po-wer.” However, none of this discouraged Hunter Biden from serving in the company.

Why Burisma Wanted Hunter

Burisma had good reasons to request help from the well-positioned American. The 2014 February coup in Ukraine, also known as Euromaidan, resulted in the ouster of Viktor Yanukovich and triggered the redistribution of power and wealth among Ukrai- nian oligarchs and their cronies. Zlochevsky, who came to prominence as one of Yanukovich’s top ministers, found himself on thin ice.

As cited by Reuters, Oleksandr Onyshchenko, a businessman and former member of the Ukrainian parliament,alleged that Zlochevsky brought Biden as well his busi-ness associate Devon Archer and former president of Poland Aleksander Kwaśniew-ski to the board of Burisma ”to protect (the company)” from potential prosecution.

In addition, according to a New York Times’ December 2015 story, just weeks before Burisma hired Hunter, then Vice President Joe Biden was assigned by President Barack Obama to oversee US-Ukraine relations.…

Zlochevsky loosened his purse to fund his ”dream team”: according to Ukrainian court documents obtained by Novaya Gazeta,between 18 November 2014 and 16 October 2015, the holding sent $3404712.82 to Rosemont Seneca for ”consultation services”, while a further €1,000,000 went to Aleksander Kwaśniewski, the media outlet says.…

While later both Joe and Hunter Biden denied that they had ever discussed the Burisma issue, a photo featuring the vice president, his son and Devon Archer, who served on the board of the Ukrainian holding together with Hunter, playing golf in August 2014, appears to prove the opposite.

​The Washington Post remarked at that time: ”The appointment of the vice president’s son to a Ukrainian oil board looks nepotistic at best, nefarious at worst”.……

Hunter Biden’s Controversial Record

According to Reuters, sources close to Burisma described Hunter’s role in the company as that of a ”ceremonial figure”.…

They elaborated that then vice president’s son had not visited Ukraine during his five-year contract with the holding, adding that twice a year he attended Burisma’s board meetings all of which were held outside of Ukraine.…

He was reportedly paid $83,333 per month having expertise neither in energy business nor in Ukraine’s affairs.

Hunter’s actual responsibilities at the company also raise questions. On 12 May 2014, Burisma issued a press release saying that Hunter Biden ”will be in charge of the holding’s legal unit and will provide support for the company among international organisations”.…

However, in his May 2019 interview with The New York Times, Hunter argued that the holding’s release was not accurate saying: ”At no time was I in charge of the company’s legal affairs”.…

To add to the controversy shortly before getting the new job in Ukraine, Hunter was discharged from the US Navy Reserves on 18 February after urine tests indicated cocaine in his system.

Moreover, according to Business Insider, since 2003, Hunter ”was in and out of mul-tiple rehab centers, achieving sobriety for periods of time before relapsing”, ending up with being forced out of the Navy. Later his addiction problems became the trigger for a 2017 divorce from his wife Kathleen Biden, who he was married to for 22 years and had three children with.…

The Bidens’ ’Shield’ & ’Untouchable’ Mykola Zlochevsky

While Reuters argues that Hunter failed to shield the holding from a series of crimi-nal investigations into Zlochevsky started by the Ukrainian and British authorities, the truth of the matter is that all of those probes mysteriously fell apart while Biden was at the helm.

According to ex-Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko’s recollection of events outlined in his May 2019 Facebook post there had been three criminal cases targe-ting Zlochevsky and Burisma,namely tax evasion allegations (Art.212 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine), money laundering (Art. 209) and misuse of public funds (Art. 191).

Ukrainian Prosecutor General Vitaly Yarema started looking into the Burisma owner’s alleged misconduct in August 2014 and then passed it to Viktor Shokin who became Ukraine’s prosecutor general in February 2015.

A month earlier,on 21January 2015,the UK’s SFO unblocked Zlochevsky’s accounts. Although the British law enforcement agency continued the investigation it ultimately stalled after several months. Speaking to the Guardian in May 2015, a SFO spokes-person bemoaned the fact that the British agency ”was not provided with the evi-dence by authorities in the Ukraine necessary to keep this restraint order in place. ”


Bernie Sanders: Joe Biden hoards credit for Obama accomplishments

By S.A. Miller - The Washington Times - Sunday, March 8, 2020



Sen. Bernard Sanders on Sunday accused former Vice President Joseph R. Biden of taking too much credit for accomplishments of President Barack Obama, including the 2009 automobile industry bailout.

Mr. Biden has boasted of his role in the bailout as the two rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination prepare to face off in a major primary Tuesday in Michigan, the capital of the U.S. automotive industry.

“Now let’s go to Michigan, Bernie, and see if that’s true. I’m the guy that helped bail out the automobile industry. What’d you do old buddy? Come on,” taunted Mr. Biden on CNN last week.

Mr. Sanders said the former vice president exaggerated his importance as Mr. Obama’s sidekick when tough decisions were made such as spending $80 billion to prop up Chrysler and General Motors Co. during the Great Recession.

“The auto bailout was done by the Obama administration and it was a step forward. But I think sometimes Joe is taking a little bit of credit as vice president for initiatives that were led by President Obama and by many members of the Congress,” Mr. Sanders said on “Fox News Sunday.”

The race has boiled down to a virtual two-man contest between avowed socialist Mr. Sanders and the more-moderate establishment favorite Mr. Biden.

Mr. Biden’s eight years in the White House with the country’s first black president has been a foundation of his campaign.

He jumped ahead of Mr. Sanders in the delegate race last week in the Super Tues- day primaries with wins in 10 of the 14 sates, built on the former VP’s strong support with black voters in Southern states.

The Michigan primary will be a crucial test of support in the industrial Midwest. In the 2016 race, Mr. Sanders scored an upset victory there over Hillary Clinton.

Mr. Sanders predicted he would do the same this year with polls showing Mr. Biden with a roughly 5 point lead.

Mr. Sanders also said he wouldn’t drop out of the race if he loses in Michigan.

“Media asks you,is this state or that state life or death? I was asked that at Iowa. I was asked that in New Hampshire,” he said. “We won California, the largest state in this country. We are winning among Latino voters big-time.”

Mr. Sanders said his overwhelming support among young voters signals that his far-left platform is the future of the Democratic Party and the country.

“They want changes. They’re concerned about climate change. They’re concerned about racism and sexism. So I think if you look at the general electorate, you look at the future of this country, I think you’ve got a lot of energy behind this,” he said.

He later added, “Just yesterday — didn’t get a lot of media attention for whatever reason — we had the rally in Grand Park in Chicago. We had 15,000 people out. So I’m feeling good about the momentum that we have. I think we’re going to do well on Tuesday and I think we’re going to beat Biden. "

Ties to Ukrainian National a Unifying Theme in Early Attacks on Trump

By Jeff Carlson

April 10, 2019 Updated: June 14, 2019

While special counsel Robert Mueller has concluded there was no evidence of col-lusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, some of the key people in creating the Russia-collusion narrative themselves have ties to a foreign nation.

Both the Democratic National Committee as well as Fusion GPS — the company hired by the DNC and the Clinton campaign to research the Trump campaign — were using Ukrainian sources in their efforts to discredit Trump.

Serhiy Leshchenko, a member of the Ukrainian Parliament, was a common thread involved in Democratic opposition research efforts into former Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort. Leshchenko, along with Artem Sytnyk, the director of Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau, was responsible for publicly disclosing the contents of the Ukrainian “black ledger,” which implicated Manafort, to the media.

Today's News Updates

Leshchenko also served as a source for various individuals, including journalist Mi-chael Isikoff and DNC operative Alexandra Chalupa. In addition, Leshchenko served as a direct source of information for Fusion GPS - and their hired researcher - former CIA contractor Nellie Ohr.

Leshchenko: A Source for Fusion

Ohr told congressional investigators on Oct. 19, 2018, that while she was working for Fusion, she was sometimes given leads from both Jake Berkowitz,her direct supervi-sor, and Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson.When asked if any Fusion research was based off “sources of theirs”, Nellie answered affirmatively but said the information that came from the sources wasn’t in relation to the Trump family.

When pressed, Nellie said she recalled them “mentioning someone named Serhiy Leshchenko, a Ukrainian.” She later admitted she knew of Leshchenko prior to her time at Fusion as he was a “very well-known, Ukrainian, anti-corruption activist” and said she had followed him in the press.

Leshchenko revealed the existence in 2016 of the so-called Ukrainian “black ledger,” which allegedly contained a list of secret payments made by Ukraine’s pro-Russian Party of Regions to Manafort among many others.

Leshchenko had adopted a strong anti-Trump stance, telling the Financial Times in August 2016 that “a Trump presidency would change the pro-Ukrainian agenda in American foreign policy” and that it was “important to show not only the corruption aspect, but that he is [a] pro-Russian candidate who can break the geopolitical ba-lance in the world.” Leschenko noted that the majority of Ukrainian politicians were “on Hillary Clinton’s side.”

Nellie Ohr said she wasn’t aware how the connection between Leshchenko and Fusion was established, or if they were doing work for him, but she did agree that Leshchenko was “a source of information” and acknowledged that she then used that information in following up and formulating her opposition research.

Later in Ohr’s testimony, Leshchenko was briefly mentioned once again. She appea-red to be very careful with her choice of wording - e specially when Manafort’s name came up:

Ms. Sachsman Grooms: You mentioned that, at some point, somebody from Fusion GPS told you that they were giving you a tip that was based off of a source that was a Ukrainian source, Serhiy Leshchenko. Is that right?

Ms. Ohr: Yes. That they were — that they were giving me some information that had originated with him in some way.

Ms. Sachsman Grooms: Do you recall whether that information related to Mr. Manafort?

Ms. Ohr: What I’ll say is that at the time — at the same meeting, if I recall correctly, that his name came up, this piece of paper that lists Mr. Manafort’s flights was given to me, and I’m not — I don’t recall exactly right now whether they said this particular piece of paper comes from Mr. Leshchenko or not.

At this point, the questioning abruptly moved on and no further questions involving either Manafort or Leshchenko were put forth. Ohr was never asked if she had ever met with Leshchenko directly.

The Party of Regions Email

In 2010, Nellie Ohr was listed as a participant in a June 2010 National Institute of Justice report, “Expert Working Group Report on International Organized Crime.” Listed on the same page were husband Bruce Ohr and Simpson, who was, at the time, a “Senior Fellow, International Assessment and Strategy Center.”

Another participant at the conference was DOJ official Lisa Holtyn, who was listed as a senior intelligence adviser at the DOJ Criminal Division’s Organized Crime and Racketeering Section.

Notably, Holtyn is the same DOJ official Nellie Ohr included on many of her emails to her husband that contained her Russia-related research. Also present at the confe-rence was Mark Galeotti, academic chair for the Center for Global Affairs at New York University, and Tom Kellerman, vice president of security awareness and strategic partnerships at Core Security Technologies.

Nellie Ohr, while working for Fusion GPS, would later send emails to Bruce Ohr and Holtyn with Russia-related articles that contained quotes from both Galeotti and Kel-lerman, with Galeotti being more frequently referenced, but she made no mention of their mutual association from the conference in her emails.

On May 30,2016,Nellie Ohr sent an email to Bruce Ohr,Holtyn, Ivana Nizich, and Joe Wheatley, then both trial attorneys in the DOJ’s Organized Crime and Gang Section. Nizich had previously worked for Bruce Ohr. The email held a subject line that read “Reported Trove of Documents on Ukrainian Party of Regions’ ‘Black Cash-box.’” Within the email was the text from an article penned the day before by Nikolai Hol-mov, a blogger at Odessatalk, with the title bolded and enlarged. It also contained a link to the underlying article.

“Documentation regarding that Party of Regions’ ‘chyornaya kasse’ has now seemingly found its way to NABU, the Ukrainian National Anti-Corruption Bureau,” the article stated.

The article contained a tweet that led to another article, in Russian, from May 28, 2016, providing further details on the “chyornaya kasse” or black box ledger:

“On Saturday, published in the Weekly Mirror, Ukraine, an interview was made public with the former First Deputy Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Viktor Trepak, who claims that he handed over documents confirming illegal payments of cash by the Party of Regions to a number of former and current senior officials. According to him, we are talking about the so-called “black bookkeeping” of the Party of Regions with total payments of about $2 billion.”

Trepak reportedly claimed his information regarding the more than $2 billion fund implicated “officials of the highest level,ministers and heads of departments, people’s deputies, famous politicians, public figures, representatives of international organizations, judges, including the highest judicial instances.”

Interestingly, when one goes to Holmov’s Twitter feed, the last retweet sent (as of publication of this article) was on Jan. 11, 2019. It is a retweet of an announcement from Mark Galeotti that he was “joining the pre-eminent security think tank @RUSI_org as a Senior Associate Fellow.” Galeotti, as previously mentioned, had been referenced with some frequency in Ohr’s emails. In addition to being the author of numerous articles, Galeotti penned an article for Tablet Magazine, titled, “The ‘Trump Dossier,’ or How Russia Helped America Break Itself.”

Some questions raised in Holmov’s article would later prove prescient. “Have copies of these documents made their way to other, perhaps foreign security services? To what end?” he asked. “If there are foreign personalities involved, are those relevant documents to be shared with those nations—and when?”

Holmov addressed the motivations of the person responsible for disclosing the ledger, noting, “Not all informants are informants for cash reward — there are other (and perhaps more dangerous) motivators.”

He also wondered about the timing, observing that the documents had “not just appeared from nowhere. Somebody has kept it, knowing it to be what it is, for quite some time. Thus why now has it come to light and been given to the authorities?”

Interestingly, Holmov noted that no names or specifics have been made public “for now” as any such disclosure “could very well impede subsequent investigations by NABU.”  A Ukrainian court later determined that a NABU official played a role in the leaking of documents to The New York Times.

Nellie’s May 30, 2016, email would prove prophetic. It alerted officials within the Jus-tice Department of a discovery that would have far-reaching implications for Mana-fort — and the Trump campaign—months before the news reached a national level.

Leshchenko Leak Takes Down Manafort

Manafort, the former campaign chairman for Donald Trump, would be famously implicated in the Black Box ledger scandal two months later and it would lead to his resignation from the Trump campaign.

Manafort’s work in Ukraine was highlighted in late July, and on Aug. 14, 2016, The New York Times reported that payments to Manafort had been uncovered from the Party of Regents’ black box:

“Handwritten ledgers show $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments designated for Mr.Manafort from Mr.Yanukovych’s pro-Russian political party from 2007 to 2012, according to Ukraine’s newly formed National Anti-Corruption Bureau. Investigators assert that the disbursements were part of an illegal off-the-books system whose recipients also included election officials.”

Manafort’s name was reportedly listed in the 400-page ledger 22 times, although his actual signature wasn’t authenticated and any payments made to him remain unveri-fied. The documents implicating Manafort had been released by Serhiy Leshchenko.

On March 20,2017,Leshchenko released another set of documents,this time alleging to show that Manafort took steps to hide payments related to his work for former Ukrainian President Viktor F. Yanukovych. Leshchenko’s documents “included an invoice that appeared to show $750,000 funneled through an offshore account and disguised as payment for computers.”

In a strange twist, it was reported by Politico in late February 2017 that a hack of the phone belonging to one of Manafort’s daughters revealed a text containing a black-mail threat that Manafort has attributed to Leshchenko. It’s not known with any cer-tainty who actually sent the text, which contains an attachment that references “the Yanukovych accounting book” and lists an email address for Leshchenko.

Leshchenko became the subject of an investigation in Ukraine and in December 2018, a Kyiv court ruled that Leshchenko, along with NABU Director Artem Sytnyk “acted illegally when they revealed that Manafort’s surname and signature were found in the so-called “black ledger” of ousted President Viktor Yanukovych’s Party of Regions,” the Kyiv Post reported on Dec. 12, 2018.

The court noted the material was part of a pre-trial investigation and its release “led to interference in the electoral processes of the United States in 2016 and harmed the interests of Ukraine as a state.”

The Hill recently reported that Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko stated that he was opening “a probe into alleged attempts by Ukrainians to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.” Surprisingly, the report, which focuses on Sytnyk, makes no mention of Leshchenko - or of the December court ruling which determined that both Leshchenko and Sytnyk violated Ukrainian law.

Alexandra Chalupa’s Ukrainian Ties

According to a Jan. 11, 2017, investigative article by Politico, headlined “Ukrainian Efforts to Sabotage Trump Backfire,” Democratic operative Alexandra Chalupa had been investigating Manafort and his work in Ukraine since 2014.

According to an Oct 16, 2018, report in the Kyiv Post, “Chalupa said she first came across Manafort after she organized a meeting with then-U.S.President Barack Oba-ma’s National Security Council and leaders of Ukrainian-American organizations in January 2014, to brief the White House about the Euromaidan Revolution that drove President Viktor Yanukovych from power on Feb. 22, 2014.”

In late 2015, Chalupa expanded her research into Manafort to include the Trump campaign and possible ties to Russia.

In January 2016,Chalupa informed an unknown senior DNC official that she believed there was a Russian connection with the Trump campaign. Notably,this theme would be picked up by the Clinton campaign in the summer of 2016. Chalupa also told the official to expect Manafort’s involvement in the Trump campaign.

Chalupa’s forecast proved prescient, as Manafort reached out to the Trump campaign shortly after, on Feb. 29, 2016, through a mutual acquaintance, Thomas J. Barrack Jr. According to Manafort, he and Trump hadn’t been in communication for years until the Trump campaign responded to Manafort’s offer.

On March 28, 2016, Manafort was hired by the Trump campaign. He was reportedly initially hired to lead the Trump campaign’s delegate effort, but was soon promoted, and on May 19, 2016, Manafort became Trump’s campaign chairman and chief strategist.

Just days prior to Manafort’s hiring,on March 24,2016,Chalupa spoke with the Ukrai- nian ambassador to the United States, Valeriy Chaly, and told him of concerns she had regarding Manafort. Reportedly, her concerns were initially rebuffed as Chaly didn’t think Trump had a real chance of winning the presidency.

According to Politico, the day after Manafort’s hiring, Chalupa provided a briefing on “Manafort,Trump and their ties to Russia” to the DNC’s communications staff. Notab-ly, “with the DNC’s encouragement,” Chalupa asked the Ukrainian Embassy staff to attempt to arrange an interview with Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko and have him discuss Manafort’s ties to former Ukrainian President Yanukovych.The Ukrainian Embassy reportedly declined the request but, according to Chalupa, did begin working with reporters who were researching Trump.

Andrii Telizhenko, who worked in the Ukrainian Embassy under one of Chaly’s top aides, Oksana Shulyar, has repeatedly stated that Chalupa was working closely with the Ukrainian Embassy to obtain information on Trump.

In an interview with the Gateway Pundit, Telizhenko said he met Chalupa in the spring of 2016 at the Ukrainian Embassy, where Chalupa told him she was “a DNC operative working for the DNC” and the “Clinton campaign.” Telizhenko continued, noting that Chalupa said she was “collecting any dirt or background information on Manafort,presidential candidate Trump or any other campaign official from the Trump campaign” and was looking for “connections to Russia or the FSB or Russian mob, or Ukrainian mob, etc.”

According to Telizhenko, Chalupa said the information would “be used for committee hearings in Congress under a congresswoman”. Telizhenko didn’t disclose the identity of the congresswoman, noting, “I don’t want to mention her name on record.”

In January 2017, Telizhenko told Politico that Chalupa said, “If we can get enough information on Paul [Manafort] or Trump’s involvement with Russia, she can get a hearing in Congress by September.”

In a recent tweet, Telizhenko summed the situation succinctly, noting “The Clinton campaign had a Democratic operative working with Ukraine’s embassy in Washing-ton to research Trump’s Russia ties, as well as a Ukrainian lawmaker feeding information to Fusion GPS.”

The “Democratic operative” refers to Chalupa, while the “Ukrainian lawmaker” refers to Leshchenko.

Isikoff Collaborates With Chalupa

On April 26,2016,Yahoo News investigative reporter Michael Isikoff published a story about Paul Manafort’s business dealings with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

The Isikoff article referenced an investment fund, Pericles Emerging Markets, which was started by Manafort and several partners in 2007. According to The New York Times,Deripaska was the financial backer of the fund and agreed to commit as much as $100 million,although he apparently only invested $18.9 million in 2008 to finance the purchase of Black Sea Cable,a Ukrainian telecommunications company. Pericles is now defunct, and Deripaska sued Manafort in a Cayman Islands court, seeking to recover his investment.

This same transaction would later be referenced in the Aug. 14, 2016, New York Times article that reported the alleged payments to Manafort from the Party of Regents’ black box.

On April 28, 2016, Chalupa appeared on a panel to discuss her research on Mana-fort with a group of 68 Ukrainian investigative journalists gathered at the Library of Cong-ress, for a program sponsored by a U.S.congressional agency called the Open World Leadership Center.

Appearing with her was Isikoff, with whom she was apparently working and whom she had invited, according to a May 3,2016,email that Chalupa sent to Luis Miranda, communications director of the DNC, and was published by Wikileaks:

“I spoke to a delegation of 68 investigative journalists from Ukraine last Wednesday at the Library of Congress — the Open World Society’s forum — they put me on the program to speak specifically about Paul Manafort and I invited Michael Isikoff,whom I’ve been working with for the past few weeks and connected him to the Ukrainians.”

Isikoff is the same reporter who published an article about Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page on Sept. 23, 2016. The article, headlined “U.S. Intel Offi-cials Probe Ties Between Trump Adviser and Kremlin,” was based on an interview with Christopher Steele. Isikoff’s article would later be used as corroborating information by the FBI in the FISA warrant application on Page.

Chalupa’s email closed with a reference to something larger that would become public in the coming weeks:

“More offline tomorrow since there is a big Trump component you and Lauren need to be aware of that will hit in next few weeks and something I’m working on you should be aware of.”

In late July, according to the Politico article, Chalupa left the DNC to work full-time on her research into Manafort. Around the same time, on Aug. 4, 2016, Chaly, the Ukrai-nian ambassador, wrote an op-ed in The Hill against candidate Trump,noting that “re- cent comments by Republican nominee Donald Trump about the Ukrainian peninsu-la of Crimea - occupied by Russia since March 2014 - have raised serious concerns in Kyiv and beyond Ukraine.”

Leshchenko’s Ties to Chalupa

On Aug. 14, 2016, The New York Times broke their blockbuster story alleging that payments to Manafort had been uncovered from the Party of Regents’ “black box” — the 400-page handwritten ledger released by Leshchenko. The article proved to be a fatal blow for Manafort, who resigned from the Trump campaign just days later.

On Aug. 19, 2016, Isikoff wrote a follow-up article, claiming that Ukrainian anti-cor-ruption investigators were seeking to question Manafort, who had resigned from the Trump campaign that same day. The source for Isikoff was Leshchenko, who told him that the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine “have to interrogate him. … This has to happen.”

Leshchenko held a press conference in Kyiv that same day, where he provided fur-ther details from the Party of Regions’ ledger. Leshchenko also provided details di-rectly to Isikoff, telling Yahoo News “that ledgers in the book include 22 separate ent-ries for Manafort - most of them for fees under his contract as a political consultant to the party, but others for exit polls, computers, international observers and other expenses.”

Mentioned in the same article was Chalupa, with whom Isikoff had been working:

“I’m ecstatic that Paul Manafort resigned from the Trump campaign,” Chalupa told Yahoo News. “Mr. Manafort is someone who spent the last decades working against our nation’s foreign policy interests overseas, as most recently demonstrated in Ukraine when he worked for Putin’s former puppet president, Viktor Yanukovych.”

Besides Isikoff,it appears Leshchenko had also been in contact with Chalupa. According to a March 20, 2017, report from Fox News, Leshchenko had spoken with Chalupa sometime in 2016:

“Leshchenko said he discussed Manafort’s role in Ukrainian politics with Chalupa, the Democratic consultant, last year. Leshchenko said Manafort ‘kept his eyes blind to all the corruption’ by the Ukrainian politicians he was advising years ago.”

On July 24, 2017, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein regarding Chalupa, noting that her actions “appear to show that she was simultaneously working on behalf of a foreign government, Ukraine, and on behalf of the DNC and Clinton campaign, in an effort to influence not only the U.S. voting population but U.S. government officials.”

Grassley asked why the DOJ hadn’t required Chalupa to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act and also asked if the DOJ was “investigating links and coordination between the Ukrainian government and individuals associated with the campaign of Hillary Clinton or the Democratic National Committee? If not, why not?”




Biden joutuu Ukrainassa oikeuteen:

Joe Biden is listed in a criminal complaint in the Ukraine in a quid pro quo scandal. It involved the firing of the Prosecutor General who was investigating Biden's son's company.
Glenn Greenwald: The New York Times myöntää nyt, että "Bidenin kannettavan tietokoneen" tarina oli totta ja että se leimattiin virheellisesti "venäläiseksi disinformaatioksi".
Tätä entisten CIA-virkamiesten valhetta kaupillut tiedotusvälineet eivät ole koskaan peruneet vaaleja edeltäviä valheitaan, joita Big Tech käytti sensuroidakseen pääehdokkaan kattavuutta.
Yksi Amerikan modernin vaalihistorian menestyneimmistä disinformaatiokam-panjoista järjestettiin vuoden 2020 presidentinvaaleja edeltävinä viikkoina. 14. loka-kuuta 2020 – alle kolme viikkoa ennen vaaleja – maan vanhin sanomalehti,New York Post,alkoi julkaista sarjan raportteja demokraattien ykköspelaajan Joe Bidenin ja hä- nen poikansa Hunterin liiketoiminnasta maissa,joissa Biden harjoitteli.Merkittävä vai-kutus varapresidenttinä (mukaan lukien Ukraina ja Kiina) ja käyttäisi uudelleen, jos hänet valitaan presidentiksi.
Vastareaktio tälle uutiselle oli välitön ja väkivaltainen,mikä johti siihen, että Yhdysval- tain yritysmedia tukahdutti tarinan ja johtavat Piilaakson monopolit sensuroivat tari-nan.Tätä raporttia vastaan ​​suunnattua disinformaatiokampanjaa johti lähes virallinen CIA:n tiedottaja Natasha Bertrand (silloin Politicossa,nyt CNN:ssä),jonka 19.lokakuu- ta artikkeli otsikoi: "Hunter Bidenin tarina on venäläistä disinfoa, kymmenet entiset tiedusteluviranomaiset sanovat." kääntäjä].
Natasha Bertrand, Politico , 19. lokakuuta 2020
Nämä "entiset tiedusteluviranomaiset" eivät sanoneet, että "Hunter-Bidenin tarina on venäläistä disinformaatiota".Pikemminkin he korostivat kirjeessään päinvastaista: ni-mittäin sitä, ettei heillä ollut todisteita siitä, että sähköpostit olisivat väärennettyjä tai että Venäjällä olisi mitään tekemistä niiden kanssa, vaan he olivat vain herättäneet tämän "epäilyn" kokemuksensa perusteella:
Haluamme korostaa, että emme tiedä, ovatko presidentti Trumpin henkilö-kohtaisen asianajajan Rudy Giulianin New York Postille toimittamat sähkö-postit aitoja vai eivät, ja että meillä ei ole todisteita Venäjän osallisuudesta – vain kokemuksemme saa meidät epäilemään, että Venäjän hallituksella oli tässä asiassa merkittävä rooli.
Mutta medialla, joka halusi epätoivoisesti varmistaa Trumpin tappion, ei ollut aikaa faktoille tai väsyttäville yksityiskohdille, mm. B. mitä nämä entiset virkamiehet todella sanoivat tai oliko se todella totta. Sinulla oli mahdollisuus manipuloida. Tämän seu-rauksena väitteistä, joiden mukaan nämä sähköpostit olivat "venäläistä disinformaa-tiota" - eli ne olivat väärennettyjä ja Venäjän valmistamia -, tuli uskonkappale oikeutetusti halveksitun Yhdysvaltain mediatyöntekijöiden joukossa.
Hyvin harvat sisälsivät jopa sen ratkaisevan varoituksen, jota tiedusteluviranomaiset itse korostivat: nimittäin, ettei heillä ollut mitään todisteita tämän väitteen tueksi. Sen sijaan, kuten totesin viime syyskuussa, " käytännössä kaikki tiedotusvälineet - CNN, NBC News, PBS, Huffington Post, The Intercept ja liian monet muut lueteltavaksi - alkoivat jättää raportin sisältö kokonaan huomiotta ja sen sijaan levittää valhetta. että nämä asiakirjat olivat venäläisen disinformaation sivutuote." Huffington Post julkaisi jopa Joe Bidenin vaalimainoksen, joka oli naamioitu "raportiksi" - joka on nähtävä, jotta se uskoisi – jotka levittivät valhetta, että sähköpostit olivat "venäläistä disinformaatiota".
Big Tech käytti sitten tätä Bidenin sähköposteja koskevaa disinformaatiokampanjaa perustellakseen tämän tarinan kattavuuden tai keskustelun julmaa sensuuria: tämä on luultavasti vakavin esimerkki vaaleja edeltävästä sensuurista Yhdysvaltain mo-dernissa poliittisessa historiassa.Twitter sulki New York Postin Twitter-tilin lähes kah- deksi viikoksi, koska se kieltäytyi noudattamasta Twitterin määräystä poistaa kaikki viittaukset sen kattamiseen. Sosiaalinen media esti myös kaikki linkit kattavuuteen kaikilta käyttäjiltä;Twitterin käyttäjät eivät enää saaneet edes viitata tarinaan yksityi-sissä keskusteluissa. Facebook ilmoitti tiedottajansa, pitkäaikaisen DNC-avustajan Andy Stonen kautta, jossa todetaan,että se tukahduttaisi algoritmisesti keskustelun tarinasta varmistaakseen,että se ei leviä ennen kuin "Facebookin riippumattomat faktantarkistuskumppanit suorittavat faktantarkistuksen", mitä ei tietenkään koskaan tapahtunut - juuri siksi, että arkisto oli kiistatta aito.
Arkiston aitous oli alusta asti selvää, kuten dokumentoin syyskuussa julkaistussa videoraportissa. Itse asiassa - kuten olen kuvaillut tässä raportissa - vaaransin urani sen aitouden vuoksi, kun vaadin The Interceptiä julkaisemaan analyysini näistä pal-jastuksista, ja sitten sen kiivaasti Trumpia vastustavat toimittajat luopuivat kaikesta keskustelusta, jossa se sensuroitiin nuo sähköpostit tarkasti . koska oli kiistatonta, että arkisto oli aito (James Risen,The Interceptin entinen New York Timesin toimitta-ja, sai samat toimittajat tuomitsemaan CIA:n valheen tukemaan ja levittämään, kun hän vaati, että kannettava tietokone tulisi jättää huomiotta, koska "ryhmä entisiä tie-dustelupalveluja lähetti kirjeen,jossa sanottiin,että Giulianin kannettavan tietokoneen tarinassa on venäläisen disinformaation klassiset tunnusmerkit .") Tiesin, että Arkisto oli aito kaikkien arvioinnissa käytettyjen journalististen standardien mukaan. suuria tämän tyyppisiä arkistoja - mukaan lukien Snowdenin arkisto ja Brasilian arkisto, jota olen käyttänyt useisiin tutkintaraportteihin – ei jättänyt epäilystäkään sen aitoudesta (tämä sisältää dokumentoituja todisteita sähköpostiketjuihin osallistuvilta kolmansilta osapuolilta, jotka osoittavat, että heidän hallussaan olleet lähetetyt sähköpostit sopivat sanasta sanaan arkisto).
Kaikki viipyvät epäilyt – eikä niiden olisi pitänyt olla – Biden-arkiston aitoudesta hälvenivät, kun Politicon toimittaja Ben Schreckinger julkaisi viime syyskuussa kirjan nimeltä The Bidens:Inside the First Family's Fifty-Year Rise to Power” [The Bidens: Ensimmäisen perheen 50 vuoden nousu valtaan,toim. kääntäjä] julkaisi,jossa hän to-disti että keskeiset sähköpostit, joihin The New York Post luottaa, olivat täysin aitoja.
Schreckinger haastatteli muun muassa useita sähköpostiketjuun osallistuneita hen-kilöitä, jotka vahvistivat, että heidän hallussaan olevat sähköpostit vastaavat sanasta sanaan Postin arkistossa olevia. Hän sai myös Ruotsin hallitukselta asiakirjoja, jotka olivat identtisiä arkiston tärkeimpien asiakirjojen kanssa. Hänen oma lehti, Politico, oli yksi harvoista, joka edes kiinnitti huomiota hänen kirjaansa. Huolimatta siitä, että he olivat ensimmäisiä, jotka levittivät valhetta, että sähköpostit olivat "venäläistä dis-informaatiota ", Politicon toimittajat - otsikolla "Bidenille kaksinkertainen ongelma" - myönsivät. että kirja "löytää todisteita siitä, että osa Hunte Bidenin kannettavan tieto-koneen materiaalista on aitoa, mukaan lukien kaksi sähköpostiviestiä, jotka olivat viime lokakuun kiistan keskipisteessä".
Samat tiedotusvälineet,jotka julkaisivat CIA:n nyt kumottu valheita,jättivät Schreckin- gerin kirjan keskeiset paljastukset lähes kokonaan huomiotta. He vain käyttäytyivät kuin sitä ei olisi koskaan tapahtunut. Asian hyväksyminen olisi pakottanut heidät tun-nustamaan tosiasian,joka tuhosi heidän jäljellä olevan uskottavuutensa:nimittäin sen että he kaikki tukivat ja levittivät koordinoitua disinformaatiokampanjaa Joe Bidenin valitsemiseksi ja Donald Trumpin kukistamiseksi. Vahva määrä ja tietäen, että he pu-huvat vain vasemmistolaisten kanssa, jotka valehtelevat mielellään auttaakseen de-mokraatteja, he ovat kaikki liittyneet hiljaisuuden lupaukseen ja Schreckingerin kirjan uusiin todisteisiin, että he kaikki tukivat disinformaatiokampanjaa edeltävinä päivinä. vuoden 2020 vaaleihin,
Nyt on paljon vaikeampaa paeta heidän tekojensa todellisuutta, vaikka he todennä-köisesti jatkavatkin niin. Tänä aamuna The New York Times julkaisi artikkelin, jossa kerrotaan FBI:n laajasta meneillään olevasta rikostutkinnasta Hunter Bidenin kan-sainvälisestä liiketoiminnasta ja verotoiminnasta. Ennen vaaleja The Times oli yksi harvoista, jotka suhtautuivat skeptisesti CIA:n vaaleja edeltävään valheeseen, jonka se totesi 22. lokakuuta."Ei ole konkreettisia todisteita siitä, että kannettava tietokone sisältää venäläistä disinformaatiota".Koska FBI:n nyt tutkiman Hunter Bidenin toimin- ta liittyy suoraan The Postin ensimmäisenä paljastamiin sähköposteihin, toimittajien oli turvauduttava kannettavan tietokoneen arkistoon kattavuuden lisäämiseksi ja tukemiseksi. Tämä puolestaan ​​vaati The New York Timesin varmistamaan tämän kannettavan tietokoneen aitouden ja sen alkuperän - minkä toimittajien mukaan se onnistui:
Tutkimukseen perehtyneet ihmiset sanoivat, että syyttäjät tutkivat Bidenin, Archerin ja muiden välisiä sähköposteja Burmasta ja muusta ulkomaisesta liiketoiminnasta. The New York Times hankki nämä sähköpostit tiedostojen välimuistista, jotka näyttävät tulevan kannettavasta herra Bidenin jättämästä Delawaren korjaamoon . Sähköpostin ja muut välimuistissa olevat henkilöt ovat vahvistaneet niiden aitoudeksi ja tutkimukseen perehtyneet ihmiset.
Alusta alkaen oli selvää, että sähköpostit olivat aitoja. Kaikki epäilykset hälvenivät Schreckingerin kirjan julkaisussa kuusi kuukautta sitten. Paper of Record itse sanoo nimenomaisesti paitsi sen,että sähköpostit "ollistettiin",vaan että Postin alkuperäinen tarina siitä, kuinka he saivat nämä materiaalit - ne "tulivat kannettavasta tietokonees-ta, jonka herra Biden jätti korjaamoon vuonna Delaware" - "ilmeisesti" on totta.
Tämä tarkoittaa, että vuoden 2020 presidentinvaaleja edeltävinä ratkaisevina päivinä suurin osa yritysmediasta kauppasi suoraa valhetta New York Postin raportoinnista johtaakseen harhaan ja manipuloidakseen amerikkalaisia ​​äänestäjiä. Se tarkoittaa, että Big Tech -monopolit yhdessä Twitterin kanssa ovat sensuroineet tämän tarinan "tiedusteluyhteisön" valheen perusteella. Se tarkoittaa, että Facebookin DNC:n työn-tekijän lupaus katkaista kattavuudesta käytävä keskustelu näiden asiakirjojen "fakta-tarkistuksen" suorittamiseksi oli huijaus, koska jos se olisi tehty rehellisesti, se olisi osoittanut, että Facebookin sensuuriasetus perustui valheeseen. Tämä tarkoittaa, että miljoonilta amerikkalaisilla on evätty mahdollisuus
Tämän kaiken huomioimista koskevat vastalauseet ovat tänään synkän ennustetta-vissa. Hunter Bidenin uutisoinnilla ei ole merkitystä, koska hän ei itse ollut ehdokas (tiedotuksesta teki merkityksellisen se, mitä se paljasti Joe Bidenin osallistumisesta näihin sopimuksiin). Ukrainan sota huomioon ottaen nyt ei ole oikea aika keskustella tästä kaikesta (vaikka ne yleensä jätetään huomiotta, kauheita sotia käydään aina, vaikka uhrit eivät olisikaan yhtä myötätuntoisia kuin Euroopan ukrainalaiset ja elokuvan tekijät ovat hyvät pojat eivätkä pahoja). Todellinen syy, miksi useimmat vasemmistolaiset ja heidän medialiittolaisensa eivät halua kuulla siitä, on se, että he uskovat, että heidän käyttämänsä keinot (tahallinen valehteleminen yleisölle CIA:n disinformaatiolla) ovat oikeutettuja heidän jaloille tavoitteilleen (Trump voittaa) .
Mikä tahansa muu voikaan olla totta, sekä CIA:n ja median disinformaatiokampanjal-la vuoden 2020 vaaleja edeltävinä viikkoina ja niistä seuranneella Big Techin mää-räämällä julmalla sensuurilla on historiallinen merkitys. Demokraatit ja heidän uudet liittolaisensa republikaanipuolueen perustamissiivessä saattavat olla enemmän jär-kyttynyt Ukrainan sodasta kuin tiedustelutietojen,yrityslehdistön ja suurtekniikan epä- pyhän kolminaisuuden soluttautuminen heidän omiin vaaliinsa. Mutta The New York Timesin tämänpäiväinen myöntäminen, että arkistot ja niiden sisältämät sähköpostit olivat aitoja, todistaa, että maan tehokkaimmat instituutiot tekivät valtavan petoksen. Mikä on tärkeämpää kuin eri puolueryhmien kiinnostus,


Öljykaupat olivat sivuasia...

" EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden DID help secure millions in funding for US contractor in Ukraine specializing in deadly pathogen research, laptop emails reveal, raising more questions about the disgraced son of then vice president

  • The Russian government held a press conference Thursday claiming that Hunter Biden helped finance a US military 'bioweapons' research program in Ukraine
  • However the allegations were branded a brazen propaganda ploy to justify president Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine and sow discord in the US
  • But emails and correspondence obtained by from Hunter's abandoned laptop show the claims may well be true
  • The emails show Hunter helped secure millions of dollars of funding for Metabiota, a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases
  • He also introduced Metabiota to an allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma, for a 'science project' involving high biosecurity level labs in Ukraine 
  • The president's son and his colleagues invested $500,000 in Metabiota through their firm Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners 
  • They raised several million dollars of funding for the company from investment giants including Goldman Sachs 

Moscow’s claim that Hunter Biden helped finance a US military 'bioweapons' re-search program in Ukraine is at least partially true, according to new emails obtained exclusively by

The commander of the Russian Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Forces, claimed there was a 'scheme of interaction between US government agencies and Ukrainian biological objects' and pointed to the 'financing of such activities by struc-tures close to the current US leadership, in particular the investment fund Rosemont Seneca, which is headed by Hunter Biden.'

Intelligence experts say the Russian military leader's allegations were a brazen propaganda ploy to justify president Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine and sow discord in the US.

But emails from Hunter's abandoned laptop show he helped secure millions of dollars of funding for Metabiota, a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases that could be used as bioweapons.

He also introduced Metabiota to an allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma, for a 'science project' involving high biosecurity level labs in Ukraine.

And although Metabiota is ostensibly a medical data company, its vice president emailed Hunter in 2014 describing how they could 'assert Ukraine's cultural and economic independence from Russia' – an unusual goal for a biotech firm.


The Russian government held a press conference Thursday claiming that Hunter Biden helped finance a US military bioweapons research program in Ukraine. But emails and correspondence obtained by from Hunter's abandoned laptop show the claims may well be true


Metabiota is a Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases that could be used as bioweapons


In April 2014, Metabiota vice president Mary Guttieri wrote a memo to Hunter outlining how they could 'assert Ukraine's cultural and economic independence from Russia'. 'Thanks so much for taking time out of your intense schedule to meet with Kathy [Dimeo, Metabiota executive] and I on Tuesday. We very much enjoyed our discussion,' Guttieri wrote


Four days after Guttieri's April 2014 email,Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi wrote to Hunter revea- ling that the then- Vice President's son had pitched a 'science project' involving Burisma and Metabiota in Ukraine. 'Please find few initial points to be discussed for the purposes of analyzing the potential of this as you called, 'Science Ukraine' project,' Pozharskyi wrote


Burisma adviser Vadym Pozharskyi (pictured). 'As I understand the Metabiota was a subcontract to principal contactor of the DoD B&V [Black & Veatch],' he wrote in an email in 2014


Government spending records show the Department of Defense awarded an $18.4million contract to Metabiota between February 2014 and November 2016, with $307,091 earmarked for 'Ukraine research projects'

Emails and defense contract data reviewed by suggest that Hunter had a prominent role in making sure Metabiota was able to conduct its pathogen research just a few hundred miles from the border with Russia.

The project turned into a national security liability for Ukraine when Russian forces invaded the country last month.

Metabiota has worked in Ukraine for Black & Veatch, a US defense contractor with deep ties to military intelligence agencies, which built secure labs in Ukraine that analyzed killer diseases and bioweapons.

Earlier this month US officials warned congress that 'Russian forces may be seeking to gain control' of these 'biological research facilities', prompting fears that deadly and even engineered pathogens could fall into Russian hands.

Hunter and his colleagues at his investment firm Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners (RSTP) routinely raised millions of dollars for technology companies, hoping the firms would take off and make them all fortunes.

Metabiota was one of those firms.Emails between Hunter and his colleagues excited- ly discuss how the company's monitoring of medical data could become an essential tool for governments and companies looking to spot outbreaks of infectious diseases.

The president's son and his colleagues invested $500,000 in Metabiota through their firm Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners.

They raised several million dollars of funding for the company from investment giants including Goldman Sachs.

But emails show Hunter was also particularly involved in Metabiota's operations in Ukraine.

Hunter's pitches to investors claimed that they not only organized funding for the firm, they also helped it 'get new customers' including 'government agencies in case of Metabiota'.

He and his business partner Eric Schwerin even discussed subletting their office space to the firm in April 2014, their emails reveal.

That month, Metabiota vice president Mary Guttieri wrote a memo to Hunter outlining how they could 'assert Ukraine's cultural and economic independence from Russia'.

'Thanks so much for taking time out of your intense schedule to meet with Kathy [Dimeo, Metabiota executive] and I on Tuesday. We very much enjoyed our discussion,' Guttieri wrote.

'As promised, I've prepared the attached memo, which provides an overview of Me-tabiota, our engagement in Ukraine, and how we can potentially leverage our team, networks, and concepts to assert Ukraine's cultural and economic independence from Russia and continued integration into Western society.'

Former senior CIA officer Sam Faddis, who has reviewed emails on Hunter's laptop, told that the offer to help assert Ukraine's independence was odd for a biotech executive.

'It raises the question, what is the real purpose of this venture? It's very odd,' he said.

Emails between Hunter and his colleagues at Rosemont Seneca excitedly discuss how the company's monitoring of medical data could become an essential tool for governments and companies looking to spot outbreaks of infectious diseases


Guttieri had a leading role in Metabiota's Ukraine operations,meeting with other com- pany executives and US and Ukrainian military officials in October 2016 to discuss 'cooperation in surveillance and prevention of especially dangerous infectious disea-ses, including zoonotic diseases in Ukraine and neighboring countries' according to a 2016 report by the Science and Technology Center in Ukraine.

At the time, Hunter was serving as a board member of Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, owned by former top government official and allegedly corrupt billionaire Mikolay Zlochevsky.

Four days after Guttieri's April 2014 email, Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi wrote to Hunter revealing that the then-Vice President's son had pitched a 'science project' involving Burisma and Metabiota in Ukraine.

'Please find few initial points to be discussed for the purposes of analyzing the potential of this as you called, 'Science Ukraine' project,' Pozharskyi wrote.

'As I understand the Metabiota was a subcontract to principal contactor of the DoD B&V [Black & Veatch].

'What kind of partnership Metabiota is looking for in Ukraine? From potential non-go-vernmental player in Kiev? Rebuilt the ties with respective ministries in Ukraine, and on the basis of that reinstate the financing from the B&V? Or they look for partner-ship in managing projects in Ukraine,PR with Government institutions here, financing of the projects?'

Faddis told that the attempt to get Metabiota to form a partnership with Burisma was a perplexing and worrying revelation.

'His father was the Vice President of the United States and in charge of relations with Ukraine. So why was Hunter not only on the board of a suspect Ukrainian gas firm, but also hooked them up with a company working on bioweapons research?' Faddis said.

'It's an obvious Russian propaganda attempt to take advantage of this. But it doesn't change the fact that there does seem to be something that needs to be explored here.

'The DoD position is that there's nothing nefarious here, this is pandemic early warning research. We don't know for sure that's all that was going on.

'But the question still remains: why is Hunter Biden in the middle of all this? Why is the disgraced son of the vice president at the heart of this – the guy with no discernible skills and a cocaine habit.'

Pozharsky said in his email to Hunter that he had encountered such biological research projects before in his former job as a Ukrainian government official, and claimed that B&V worked on 'similar or the same projects' as the proposed contract for Metabiota.

Government spending records show the Department of Defense awarded an $18.4 million contract to Metabiota between February 2014 and November 2016, with $307,091 earmarked for 'Ukraine research projects'.

The US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) also commissioned B&V to build a Biological Safety Level 3 laboratory in Odessa, Ukraine in 2010, which 'provided enhanced equipment and training to effectively, safely and securely identify especially dangerous pathogens' according to a company press release.

Such labs are used to 'study infectious agents or toxins that may be transmitted through the air and cause potentially lethal infections,' the US Department of Health and Human Services says.

B&V was awarded a further five-year $85million contract in 2012.


In a May 2014 email, RSTP partner Schwerin suggested: 'there are obviously some real potential syner-gies between Xiaoying's husband's work at the CDC and what Metabiota does. Something else to think about'


In another sign of the deep ties between Metabiota and the Department of Defense, Hunter's RSTP busi-ness partner Rob Walker said he would 'have a friend reach out to DoD on the down low',in order to prove the company's bona fides to top prospective investors Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley in October 2014.

RSTP was a subsidiary of Rosemont Capital, an investment company founded by Hunter and former Secretary of State John Kerry's stepson Chris Heinz in 2009.

Metabiota also has close ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), suspected to be the source of the COVID-19 outbreak.

WIV was a hotspot for controversial 'gain of function' research that can create super-strength viruses.

Chinese scientists performed gain of function research on coronaviruses at the WIV, working alongside a US-backed organization EcoHealth Alliance that has since drawn intense scrutiny over its coronavirus research since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Researchers from the Wuhan institute, Metabiota and EcoHealth Alliance published a study together in 2014 on infectious diseases from bats in China, which notes that tests were performed at the WIV.

Shi Zhengli, the WIV Director of the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases who became dubbed the 'bat lady' for her central role in bat coronavirus research at the lab, was a contributor to the paper.

Metabiota has been an official partner of EcoHealth Alliance since 2014, according to its website.
