Legal Analyst Discusses Significance Of Biden FD-1023 Document

Fox News legal commentator Jonathan Turley explained the reason the FBI FD-1023 form regarding allegations of foreign bribery by the Biden family must be taken seriously.

According to a report, the FD-1023 form, which contains information on claims that the Bidens received bribes, was supplied to Republican Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley by whistleblowers working for the Department of Justice. Mykola Zlochevsky, the Ukrainian tycoon who established the energy business Burisma, is accused of bribing then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, according to the document.

Mykola Zlochevsky is accused of telling an FBI informant that discovering evidence of illegal payments to then-Vice President Biden would take more than a decade. The FBI was reluctant to share the file with the public.  The FBI is where evidence, particularly if it bears the Biden name, goes to die, according to Turley.  

The Department of Justice exerted pressure on prosecutors to drop criminal tax charges against Hunter Biden, according to testimony given by IRS whistleblowers Joseph Ziegler and Gary Shapley before the House Oversight Committee.  Ziegler said the Biden family and its affiliates stole around $17 million from Chinese, Ukrainian, and Romanian commercial interests.

A 2019 report shows that in 2014, the criminal investigation into Mykola Zlochevsky and the laundering of $35 million had been ongoing for months at the UK and Northern Ireland Fraud Bureau.

According to the report, Zlochevsky contacted then-Secretary of State John Kerry in early March 2014 while Kerry was attempting to mediate the Iran Deal between Iran and then-Vice President Joe Biden. 

Zlochevsky purportedly offered to divide the earnings from Burisma if they could help get him out of his predicament.  The former Ukrainian Ecology Minister and owner of Burisma Group, Mykola Zlochevsky, contacted then-Secretary of State John Kerry and then-Vice President Joe Biden for assistance and offered Hunter Biden a job immediately after.

In May of 2014, Burisma welcomed four new board members: Hunter Biden, Devon Archer, Alexander Kwasniewski, and Alan Apter.
