It is looking like President Trump was correct again, pressing for investigations to continue concerning the Ukrainian Oil Company Burisma and Hunter Biden. On Wednesday, Ukrainian members of parliament took to a news conference to demand that President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensk investigate suspicions of the legalization of $7.4 billion in laundered money by the “family” of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych.
The investigation also implicates American investment fund Franklin Templeton Investments, which has close ties to the U.S. Democratic Party, and even Obama.
This story is a bit complicated, and we are dealing with breaking news, and I am trying to grasp the whole thing my-self. I will do my best to get you what we know, and as always, JoeForAmerica will do it’s best to get you the facts.
A document leaked from the Ukraine’s Office of the Prosecutor General contains claims against Burisma owner Nikolai Zlochevsky, as well as Hunter Biden and his partners – who allegedly received $16.5 million for their ‘services’ – according to Alexander Dubinsky of the ruling Servant of the People Party.
Dobinsky, one of the Ukrainian MPs, states one of the leaked documents is a “signed suspicion.” This has been described in Ukrainian media as an investigative step which documents allegations against an individual or individuals, similar to a criminal referral. While Donibsky says during the press conference that “Zlochevsky was charged,”
This is what is being reported by Interfax.com, a Ukrainian News Agency:
At a press conference at the Interfax-Ukraine agency on Wednesday, MP Andriy Derkach announced that deputies have received new materials from investigative journalists about international corruption and the participation of Ukrainian officials in it.
“Last week, November 14, the Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO), unnoticed by the media, announced a new suspicion to the notorious owner of Burisma, ex-Ecology Minister Zlochevsky. According to the suspicion, the Yanukovych family is suspected, in particular, with legalizing (laundering) of criminally obtained income through Franklin Templeton Investments, an investment fund carrying out purchases of external government loan bonds totaling $7.4 billion,” Derkach said.
With reference to the investigation, he emphasized: it was money criminally obtained by the “family” of Yanukovych and invested in the purchase of Ukrainian debt in 2013-2014.
For his part, MP Oleksandr Dubinsky from the Servant of the People faction said that according to investigators, “the Yanukovych ‘family’ illegally obtained $7.4 billion and laundered the funds through an investment fund close to some representatives of the U.S. Democratic Party in the form of external government loan bonds.”
Meanwhile, Derkach said that several facts indicate Franklin Templeton Investments’ relationship with the U.S. Democratic Party.
The article goes on to say:
“The son of Templeton’s founder, John Templeton Jr., was one of President Obama’s major campaign donors. Another fund-related character is Thomas Donilon. Managing Director of BlackRock Investment Institute, shareholder Franklin Templeton Investments, which has the largest share in the fund. It is noteworthy that he previously was Obama’s national security advisor,” Derkach said.
The MP said that the presidents of Ukraine and the United States should combine the efforts of the two countries to establish facts of corruption and money laundering with the participation of citizens of both countries.

This is about ready to get REAL interesting. The impeachment inquiry has made it clear that corruption in the former Ukrainian government was very bad. We know Burisma definitely had things to hide.
The Democrats and Media have been pressing the ‘There is nothing to see here!’ line about the whole Biden/Burisma story very hard, even as facts come out that prove that is not true.
Keep the popcorn coming. We will keep you updated.
