In a stunning revelation, confidential sources have disclosed that President Joe Biden was referred to as the “big guy” by Ukrainian oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of Burisma, the energy giant that employed Hunter Biden. According to an FBI record reviewed by sources who shared its contents with the Washington Examiner, Zlochevsky mentioned an alleged bribery scheme involving a $5 million payment to Joe Biden and another $5 million to Hunter Biden. The Ukrainian oligarch reportedly expressed doubts about unraveling the complex bribery scheme, citing numerous bank accounts involved.
The reference to Joe Biden as the “big guy” made by Zlochevsky is distinct from the previously disclosed mention of the same term by a Hunter Biden business associate during negotiations with Chinese intelligence-linked businessmen in a 2017 email. This latest revelation comes from an FD-1023 document related to the alleged criminal bribery scheme, which was revealed to Senator Chuck Grassley by whistleblowers in 2022. Grassley, in turn, urged the Justice Department and FBI to hand over all related records, including those referencing Mykola Zlochevsky, Hunter Biden, James Biden, and Joe Biden.
In response to mounting pressure and the threat of being held in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with a subpoena, FBI Director Christopher Wray permitted members of the committee to review the FD-1023 document on Thursday.
Republicans in the House claim that the alleged bribery scheme is linked to Joe Biden’s actions as vice president, where he allegedly pressured the Ukrainian government to remove Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin. They argue that the bribes were intended to obstruct a corruption investigation. Senator Grassley has previously stated that the FBI possesses substantial evidence of potential criminal conduct by Hunter Biden related to his business dealings in China and Ukraine. Whistleblower disclosures reportedly implicated both Hunter Biden and James Biden in their dealings with the Chinese government-linked energy conglomerate CEFC China Energy, as well as Hunter Biden’s work for Burisma.
Hunter Biden, who joined the board of Burisma in 2014, allegedly received monthly payments of $50,000 or more.
Senator Grassley and Senator Ron Johnson previously released a joint report in 2020 that focused on then-Vice President Biden’s role in shaping Obama administration Ukraine policy while his son held a lucrative position on the Burisma board.
President Biden, when asked about the bribery allegations, dismissed them as “a bunch of malarkey” and added, “Where’s the money? I’m joking.”
It is worth noting that Ukrainian officials revealed in June 2020 that they were offered $5 million in bribes unrelated to Joe and Hunter Biden to halt criminal investigations into Burisma and allow Zlochevsky to return to Ukraine.
Hunter Biden, in a 2019 statement, claimed to have discussed his position on the Burisma board with his father only once. He said his father told him, “I hope you know what you are doing,” to which he replied, “I do.”
During the Hunter Biden grand jury proceedings in Delaware, a witness was reportedly questioned about the identity of the “big guy” in connection to Hunter Biden’s business dealings with the Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC.
The infamous “big guy” email, made public in October 2020, outlined a proposed business deal between Hunter Biden and the Chinese company. The email indicated that “the big guy” referred to Joe Biden, as confirmed by businessman James Gilliar, who sent the email to Hunter Biden and others. Gilliar mentioned Hunter Biden receiving a payment of $850,000 and listed him as “Chair/Vice Chair” depending on the agreement with CEFC. The email also mentioned a 20% equity share for Hunter and a 10% share for James Biden.
Concerns have been raised regarding the former FBI assistant special agent in charge of the Washington Field Office, Timothy Thibault, who allegedly ordered the closure of derogatory Hunter Biden reporting in October 2020, despite its verification through search warrants. Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, reportedly provided the FBI with information during that time and is now concerned about Thibault’s actions.
Earlier this year, Representative James Comer released a memo detailing a $3 million wire transfer from a CEFC-linked company to an account associated with Hunter Biden’s associate Rob Walker, followed by subsequent payments to Biden family members and related companies totaling over $1 million.
President Biden’s spokesperson, Andrew Bates, has firmly stated that the President never held stock in such business arrangements, and no family members or other individuals held stock on his behalf.
As these revelations continue to unfold, the allegations surrounding Hunter Biden’s business dealings with foreign entities remain a topic of intense scrutiny and political debate.
Despite President Joe Biden’s frequent assertion that he never discussed Hunter Biden’s overseas business ventures, new information has emerged contradicting his claims. It has been revealed that the President left a voicemail reassuring Hunter Biden that he was in the “clear” after an article exposing his dealings with CEFC China Energy was published. This evidence raises questions about the extent of Joe Biden’s involvement and knowledge regarding his son’s business activities.
Furthermore, during the October 2020 debate with former President Donald Trump, Joe Biden made an incorrect statement, claiming that his son “has not made money” in China. This statement contradicts the mounting evidence and whistleblower disclosures regarding the substantial financial gains Hunter Biden received from his dealings in China.
These revelations further complicate the narrative surrounding the Biden family’s business ties and raise concerns about transparency and potential conflicts of interest. As investigations and inquiries continue, it remains to be seen how these developments will impact the Biden administration and public perception of their integrity.
