Top Diplomat Testifies To Congress that the Obama/Biden Administration -- Not The "International Community" or EU -- Pushed for and Engineered the Ouster of The Prosecutor Targeting Hunter Biden's Company

Biden and his defenders, by which I mean the media and NeverTrump fake conservatives, have long contended that this couldn't have been corrupt, because the international community wanted it.

And apparently anything the international community wants is non-corrupt.

Sure. And by the way, "The international community" is also desperate to trade with Iran and sell them armaments and nuclear technology.

But it turns out, this diplomat says, that the international community was't even pushing for the prosecutor's ouster.

It was just Obama and Biden. Or, who knows: Biden, with Obama's assent.

Sean Davis with the news you won't hear from the liberal media, or the fake conservative media, either:

A top U.S. diplomat and expert on Ukraine testified to Congress yesterday that the Obama administration == with former Vice President Joe Biden as its point man -- orchestrated the firing of the Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating a company connected to the Biden family, sources familiar with the testimony told The Federalist.

The testimony of George Kent, a State Department official who works on the agency’s Ukraine portfolio, directly contradicts claims that the Obama administration was merely following the lead of the so-called international community in demanding the firing of Viktor Shokin, a controversial Ukrainian prosecutor who was reportedly investigating Burisma, a global energy company long suspected of corruption and money laundering. In 2014, Burisma paid Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, tens of thousands of dollars to sit on its board despite the younger Biden’s complete lack of expertise or professional experience running a multi-national oil and gas concern.


Kent told lawmakers on Tuesday that the Obama administration spearheaded the efforts to have Shokin removed from his position as the top federal prosecutor in Ukraine. Kent said the international community -- namely the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Western nations within the European Union -- were deferential to U.S. directives on the matter.
