In the wake of revelations of an alleged bribery scheme involving Joe and Hunter Biden, Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Jim Banks (R-IN) have escalated their calls for the president’s impeachment. These developments follow the release of an official FD-1023 form, an investigative document outlining details from a reliable informant, presented to the American public by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA).
The document alleges Biden’s involvement in a criminal bribery scheme during his tenure as vice president. According to the informant, Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden pressured Burisma CEO Mykola Zlochevsky into payments of millions of dollars. These funds allegedly facilitated the termination of the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma Holdings, where Hunter Biden held a high-paying board position.
We promised to uncover Joe Biden's corrupt business deals and that is EXACTLY what we have done!

Boebert, a staunch critic of Biden’s administration, expressed her vindication on Twitter. “We promised to uncover Joe Biden’s corrupt business deals and that is EXACTLY what we have done! IMPEACH,” she proclaimed. Echoing this sentiment, Banks added, “Most corrupt family to ever live in the White House! Impeach!” Their statements underscore the Republicans’ commitment to investigate what they perceive as the Biden family’s deep-seated corruption.
Interestingly, the FD-1023 form recounts meetings and conversations with Zlochevsky dating back to 2015. The Burisma CEO purportedly confessed to feeling “coerced” into paying the Bidens to ensure the removal of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. As he has admitted publicly, the former vice president urged Ukraine to fire Shokin, who was at the time investigating Burisma.
Although Biden’s allies defend his actions, claiming that Shokin was let go for leniency on corruption, the recent release of the FD-1023 form paints a different picture. This depiction aligns with the Republicans’ claims of the Biden family’s corrupt dealings. The document further alleges Zlochevsky’s possession of text messages and recordings substantiating his coercion claims.
Moreover, a damning statement from the Ukrainian oligarch Zlochevsky stated that it cost $5 million to pay each Biden. The FBI informant recalls Zlochevsky’s remark during a meeting at a Vienna coffee shop, “They both did.”
The fallout from these allegations extends beyond Washington. Ostapenko, a Zelenskyy administration official present during conversations between the informant and Zlochevsky, could corroborate the claims. Evidence of payments to the Bidens may arise from a thorough probe into Zlochevsky’s businesses and bank accounts.
As the layers of this saga continue to unfold, the demands for a thorough investigation into the Biden family’s actions grow louder among conservative circles. House Republicans remain steadfast in their pursuit of accountability, bolstered by the incriminating revelations from the FD-1023 form. The American public awaits further developments, hoping for a resolution that upholds the integrity of the nation’s highest public office.
