After about a month since an uncovered FBI document revealed that Joe Biden and his son received $10 million in bribes related to Burisma Holdings, Newt Gingrich has decided to weigh in. Gingrich claimed that there could be a corrupt criminal family in the White House and speculated that the evidence against the family could soon be unable to ignore, according to The New York Post.
FBI Director Chris Wray was not willing to give up the FD-1023 FBI informant document that detailed two transactions made to the Bidens by Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of the Ukrainian energy company, on whose board Hunter sat to leverage his father’s influence while vice president. Zlochevsky confessed to bribing then-Vice President Joe Biden to remove Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the company.
Biden would go on to brag about this situation when he said that he threatened to withhold U.S. money from Ukraine unless the country fired Shokin. The remarks were publicly made in January 2018 at the Council on Foreign Relations.
Gingrich doubted that the “dam” is going to hold much longer and suggested that eventually, even the liberal outlets that carry Biden’s water are going to have to deal with the issue. He continued to say that the Bidens accepted money not only from Ukraine, but from Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, and China.
He then said that the Biden family’s foreign business dealings are a threat to national security. Republicans have expressed concern over the FBI’s unwillingness to present the document even as the House Oversight Committee persistently put in requests. It was only after the committee threatened to subpoena the FBI director that they finally gain access to the document.
The news comes as the former president may be facing his third indictment as critics of the bloated federal government say that the Justice Department is being politically weaponized.
