Ukraine Investigates Joe Biden: "It's The Law"

• https://www.zerohedge.com, Tyler Durden

This move – potentially damaging to Biden's current presidential bid – comes not from a "perfect phone call" with President Trump, but rather by a court order. Shokin's lawyer, Oleksandr Teleshetsky, said that after the recent ruling, Ukraine's State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) is obliged to start digging:

"They need to investigate this. They have no other alternative. They are required to do this by the decision of the court. If they don't, then they violate a whole string of procedural norms."

Despite naming Joe Biden in court, the initial paperwork from the SBI apparently only mentions a "U.S. citizen." Are friendly forces in Ukraine already running cover for the presidential hopeful?

Worthy Of Investigation?

Viktor Shokin was fired due to pressure from Joe Biden, as Biden himself stated openly at a 2018 Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) event. Shokin had been investigating Burisma Holdings, the company for which the former vice president's son, Hunter Biden, worked and was paid a handsome $80K per month. It has long been a source of wonder why someone so uniquely unqualified would be the recipient of such largesse.
