That Video of Ukrainian Prosecutor Viktor Shokin That Blows Up Joe Biden's Claims About Firing


Share post:

Over the past day, a video featuring remarks from the former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin — the guy Joe Biden bragged about getting fired — has been circulating on social media.

Some folks on social media are sharing it as though this is new information. The video is compiled from an interview with Shokin from an investigative documentary by a French site, Les Crises. They did a multipart “Ukrainegate” series on the topic and they even complained about having their videos censored by Facebook. You can see this is from Part 4 of that documentary.

However, it’s important because the documentary appears to show Shokin blowing up the Democratic spin that there wasn’t any investigation going on, under him. He outlines some of the investigative steps he had taken, including freezing the assets of the Burisma co-founder Mykola Zlochevsky in Feb. 2016. The claim that the investigation had been dormant under him “has nothing to do with the reality of the facts.”

He says he has to believe that Joe Biden knew that he, Shokin, and his office were going to start questioning Hunter and other Burisma people about the company and that Joe Biden had reason to think this could fall on his son. But then after he was fired, he says the investigation stopped. He says no one has pointed out any of the supposed “corruption” that he’s supposed to have been involved in. He said that then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko yelled at him after that, asking didn’t he understand what Biden wanted, and that’s when he says his “resignation” came about.

He says that Biden humiliated Ukraine with these actions and he even called Biden out for insulting his mother, because of Biden’s comment, “well, son of a b**ch,” he was fired.

The documentary lays out what they say is praise and/or favorable opinion of Shokin from various European officials. They even include a letter purportedly from Victoria Nuland which Shokin says he received. Nuland’s letter says that they were impressed with the “ambitious reform” and “anti-corruption agenda.” So that would be a question for Congress to hunt down and determine the veracity of that letter because that would seem to conflict with the rest of what Biden and the Democrats were pitching.

What Shokin allegedly says in this video does dovetail with what we’ve reported in the past and what we reported from Part 2 of Archer’s interview with Tucker Carlson.

“Shokin was considered a threat” to the business, Archer confirmed, noting that he had seized assets of Zlochevsky, as we have reported in the past. Archer described how Zlochevsky never returned to Ukraine after his assets were seized. This, by the way, completely blows up the Democratic spin on the question that Shokin wasn’t prosecuting Burisma.

Archer noted how there was all this pressure to fire Shokin, then, somehow, Burisma was “let off the hook.” Tucker noted how a big part of that pressure came from Joe Biden, and Archer agreed “He was involved in that.”

This also matches with the report of the Kyiv Post from February 4, 2016, about the seizure of assets from Zlochevsky, as we’ve reported before.

We reported back in September 2019, that Shokin has signed an affidavit as to all this, saying that he had been investigating Burisma.

Shokin also called for a criminal investigation into Biden back in Jan. 2020 for the pressure applied to him.

“I ask you to register a criminal offense against me in the Unified Register of Pretrial Investigations by a U.S. citizen, Joseph Biden, which happened on the territory of Ukraine and abroad, namely, interference with the activities of a law enforcement officer, the responsibility for which is provided for in Part 2 of Article 343 of Ukraine’s Criminal Code. Immediately start a pretrial investigation and give written instructions to SBI investigators,” Shokin said in a statement to the acting SBI director delivered by Shokin’s lawyers.

Shokin said he agreed to resign as prosecutor general of Ukraine due to Biden pressure.

“During the last months of 2015 and the first of 2016, Joseph Biden, using his official position, personally paid official visits to Ukraine several times with the aim of holding negotiations with the state leaders on my removal from my post. As a result, he curtailed an objective investigation criminal proceedings on the facts of unlawful activities of persons associated with the company Burisma Holdings Limited (Cyprus), including the son of the specified high-ranking official,” Shokin said.

This stuff has been out there for years and we’ve reported on a lot of it. But it’s more than since time it is properly investigated.
