A highly-anticipated internal FBI document – obtained by DailyMail.com – includes bombshell claims that Joe Biden and his son Hunter forced a Ukrainian oil executive to pay them $10 million in exchange for the then-Vice President’s influence in getting a senior prosecutor fired.

According to the conversation between a confidential source and Burisma CFO Vadim Pojarski in 2015, Hunter Biden was hired onto the company’s board to ‘protect us, through his dad, from all kinds of problems.’ 

Burisma CEO Mykola Zlochevsky told the source: ‘It costs 5 (million) to pay one Biden, and 5 (million) to another Biden.’

Zlochevsky added that, although Hunter ‘was stupid,’ and his (Zlochevsky’s) dog was smarter, he was needed on the board ‘so everything will be okay.’ 

The FD-1023 form details a $10 million total 'arrangement' for an exchange of money for policy decisions between then-Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and a Ukrainian oil executive

According to the blockbuster FD-1023 form – some of which is redacted – the Confidential Human Source (CHS) met with the high-ranking Burisma executives between 2015 and 2016.

Burisma was looking to spend up to $30 million on a U.S.-based oil and gas company. However, at the time, it was also the subject of a criminal investigation by Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, which the company knew ‘would have a substantial negative impact on Burisma’s prospective IPO in the United States.’

When asked about the investigation, the form states that Zlochevsky replied: ‘Don’t worry Hunter will take care of all of those issues through his dad.’

Later, then-Vice President Joe Biden made a public statement that Shokin was ‘corrupt, and that he should be fired/removed from office.’ 

The damning form also reveals:

  • ZIochevsky ‘didn’t want to pay the Bidens and says he was ‘pushed to pay’ them.’
  • Asked whether Hunter or Joe told him to retain Hunter on the board, Zlochevsky replied: ‘They both did.’ 
  • The source asked why Burisma didn’t just ‘pay some attorney $50,000’ to fight Shokin’s investigation in Ukraine, to which Zlochevsky replied that ‘he/Burisma would likely lose the trial because he could not show that Burisma was innocent.’
  • When asked how he would  ‘explain suspicious wire transfers’, he responded that he ‘did not send any funds directly to the ‘Big Guy’ (which CHS understood was a reference to Joe Biden).’
  • He added that it would take ’10 years to find the records (ie illicit payments to Joe Biden).’
  • In a follow-up call, Zlochevsky boasted that Shokin had been fired, there was no longer an investigation into Burisma, and ‘nobody would find out about his financial dealings with the Bidens.’
  • He added that, as back-up to his claims, ‘he has many text messages and a total of 17 ‘recordings’ that show he was coerced to make the payments.’

DailyMail.com previously reported that the 17 audio recordings of phone calls – two of Joe Biden and 15 of Hunter Biden – were kept as an ‘insurance policy.’ 

The FBI FD-1023 form was created on June 30, 2020 based on information from a highly-paid informant and brought to the attention of Republicans by a whistleblower. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, obtained and published the document after a months-long back-and-forth between the top Republican and the FBI through ‘legally protected disclosures’ by Department of Justice (DOJ) whistleblowers.

The document contains a limited number of redactions to protect the confidential human source, the handling agents, DOJ whistleblower names and references to connect ongoing investigations, according to a Senate aide.

‘For the better part of a year, I’ve been pushing the Justice Department and FBI to provide details on its handling of very significant allegations from a trusted FBI informant implicating then-Vice President Biden in a criminal bribery scheme,’ Grassley said in a statement.

‘While the FBI sought to obfuscate and redact, the American people can now read this document for themselves, without the filter of politicians or bureaucrats, thanks to brave and heroic whistleblowers.’

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., added that the FBI’s memo ‘tracks closely with the evidence uncovered by the Oversight Committee’s Biden family influence peddling investigation.’

‘In the FBI’s record, the Burisma executive claims that he didn’t pay the ‘big guy’ directly but that he used several bank accounts to conceal the money. That sounds an awful lot like how the Bidens conduct business: using multiple bank accounts to hide the source and total amount of the money.’ 

The Republicans expressed their continued commitment to uncovering the truth regarding the Biden family business scheme.

White House spokesperson for oversight and investigations Ian Sams fired back after the FD-1023’s publish, accusing Republicans of going after ‘debunked’ claims.

‘It’s clear that congressional Republicans are dead-set on playing shameless, dishonest politics and refuse to let truth get in the way,’ he said in a statement. 

The FBI said in a statement to DailyMail.com that through the agency’s ‘engagement’ with Congress, they have worked to protect the safety of their confidential sources, which the Republicans violated by making the document public.

‘Today’s release of the 1023 – at a minimum – unnecessarily risks the safety of a confidential source,’ said an FBI spokesperson.
