Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) announced on Wednesday evening that he would be sending a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo demanding full transcripts of 3 phone calls between then-Vice President Joe Biden and then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
Lindsey Graham said that the three phone calls made by Joe Biden were all made around the time Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor probing Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings, was fired.
Joe Biden’s drug addict son Hunter was sitting on the board of Burisma Holdings and being paid by some accounts over $200,000 a month even though he had zero experience in the field.
Then-Vice President Joe Biden, who was tasked to oversee US dealings with Ukraine, threatened to withhold over $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine unless they fired Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma and Hunter.
In a 2018 speech to the Council on Foreign Relations, Joe Biden bragged on video about getting Viktor Shokin fired and admitted he threatened to withhold over $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine unless they fired Mr. Shokin.
“Well son of a bitch, he was fired,” Biden bragged in 2018.
“I want to know are there any transcripts or readouts of the phone calls between the vice president and the president of the Ukraine in February  after the raid on the gas company president’s house,” Graham said to Fox News host Sean Hannity. “After this raid, Hunter Biden kicks in. Hunter Biden’s business partner meets with John Kerry, and Vice President Biden on three occasions makes a phone call to the president of Ukraine and goes over there in March and they fire the guy, and this is the same man that the ambassador wanted investigated in 2015.”

Lindsey Graham sent Pompeo the letter Thursday afternoon.
The head of Burisma Holdings was indicted on November 14th, but it wasn’t reported until Wednesday.
The Office of the Prosecutor General in Ukraine indicted Burisma owner Nikolai Zlochevsky.
The indictment was damning and revealed Hunter Biden’s income under his contract with Burisma is a “link that reveals how money is siphoned [from Ukraine].”
