Update 2: Dobinsky, the MP, says one of the leaked documents is a “signed suspicion” at 1:19 in the video below. 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,” we have updated our headline and report accordingly.

Update: Reuters sheds additional light on the press conference, noting that the document from the Prosecutor General’s office was leaked and not officially released.

A Ukrainian MP says 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.

Dubinsky made the claim in a Wednesday press conference, citing materials from an investigation into Zlochevsky and Burisma.

“Zlochevsky was charged with this new accusation by the Office of the Prosecutor General but the press ignored it,” said the MP. “It was issued on November 14.”

The son of Vice-President Joe Biden was receiving payment for his services, with money raised through criminal means and money laundering,” he then said, adding “Biden received money that did not come from the company’s successful operation but rather from money stolen from citizens.”

According to Dubinsky, Hunter Biden’s income from Burisma is a “link that reveals how money is siphoned [from Ukraine],” and how Biden is just one link in the chain of Zlochevsky’s money laundering operation which included politicians from the previous Yanukovich administration who continued their schemes under his successor, President Pyotr Poroshenko.

“We will reveal the information about the financial pyramid scheme that was created in Ukraine and developed by everyone beginning with Yanukovich and later by Poroshenko. This system is still working under the guidance of the current managerial board of the National Bank, ensuring that money flows in the interest of people who stole millions of dollars, took it offshore and bought Ukrainian public bonds turning them into the Ukrainian sovereign debt,” said Dubinsky, adding that “in both cases of Yanukovich and Poroshenko, Ms. Gontareva and companies she controls were investing the stolen funds.”

Franklin Templeton named

According to Interfax-Ukraine, MP Andriy Derkach announced at the same press conference that deputies have received new materials from investigative journalists alleging that the ‘family’ of ex-President Yanukovych funneled $7.4 billion through American investment firm Franklin Templeton Investments, which they claim have connections to the US Democratic party.

“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,” said Derkach, adding that the money was criminally obtained and invested in the purchase of Ukrainian debt in 2013 – 2014.

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 added.

Derkach then demanded “President Zelensky must pick up the phone, dial Trump, ask for help and cooperation in the fight against corruption and fly to Washington. The issue of combating international corruption in Ukraine with the participation of citizens, businessmen and U.S. officials should become a key during the meeting of the two presidents.”

  1. Biden family and the whole democratic party are crooks, all should be Investigated, Fired, Arrested, all assist frozen including their homes, removal of the secret clearance, and passports. Once convicted under a military court for TREASON/TERRORISM against America should either receive one of the following, Life at hard labor (using a pick and shovel) of face a military firing squad.

  2. President Trump is right in holding the money aid in Ukraine or should have been cancelled totally. Foreign aid corruption is one of the many causes of Americas 21 trillion dollar national debt.

    • Do you have any idea what % of our national budget goes to foreign aid? Less than 3%. We waste more in DOD expenses by a huge amount. We lose more in gov’t. fraud—such as fraudulent billing for Medicare.

      • And let us not forget, the 6,000 people who work for the Department of Health & Social Services. ‘Work’ being humorously used here. They occupy space! They give money to to pay Americorps for transportation to that abortion clinic ‘Planned Parenthood’ who sell babies’ livers.

  3. Wow, a money laundering scheme, in the Obama Administration, the most trust worthy, transparent, scandal free, We the People ever had. lol

    No wonder Obama doesn’t back Joe Biden’s candidacy. No wonder Schiff won’t allow Hunter Biden OR the whistleblower to testify. No wonder Comey stopped the investigation of the Clinton Foundation and their State Department business.

    This definitely needs to be investigated because of the corruption between Ukraine and the Obama Administration. Money laundering innocent people’s money is WRONG! For BOTH Countries!

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    • God bless your little conspiracy loving heart that requires no evidence, no proof. Just the word of some unknown from another country. You want “patriotism” for Frumpy, but would deny it for Obama. You’re a freaking hypocrite.

      • lol, Liberal talking points. I used to get them all the time. Obama didn’t care about “patriotism”. Heck he apologized for it all over the World.

        And where was Mr. “Transparency” at when Taxpayer money went missing? Oh that’s right, sitting in the Executive Branch and saying “it’s the State Department’s fault”.

        It’s lovely to watch a tyrannical government like Obama’s get pulled into the light. Obama’s legacy, well “corruption” isn’t a really good one, but it is FACT!

      • No proof what a laugh. There is plenty of facts and proof going all the way back to the Clinton administration. No one was prosecuted cause they were in charge of all the evidence. No conspiracy there just facts. Follow the money through those years.

      • Lawrie, “No evidence, No Proof”, “conspiracy”…..and yet, this is exactly what is being crammed down our throats in this sham of an impeachment inquiry, this circus.
        I suppose you’re supportive of said means now that they are being used against President Trump.
        From the very moment Donald Trump won the election, the democrats made very clear that their only mission was to remove him from office, by any means possible, and they continue to demonstrate this daily. The democrat party has refused to work with Republicans on virtually anything.

        • Just in the “schiffy schiff” show Fiona Hill said Russia would undermine either President in 2016. BS in my opinion. Ms. Hill was just put there to “muddy” up the waters that show that actual American Politicians, who BLAMED Russia, but worked with them selling our Uranium, have been behind this coup all along.

          So Dems will continue scream “orange man bad” with NO facts as they blindly accept the corruption of their “gods” like Clinton, Obama and Biden.

          And if this is allowed, will go after President Trump even after their “scam” might succeed. That’s how spiteful. Ruin the Man that Beat their Queen. the “insurance policy” didn’t work, because we all know how well insurance issues work under Obama, lol.

          GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

      • People like you lead Socialists and DNC criminals to believe all of WE THE PEOPLE are stupid and unable to put 2 & 2 together. Yelling ‘conspiracy theory’ is exactly that which ALINSKY taught idiots such as yourself to do. You hate TRUMP but your reasoning for it has no explaination other than what your were told to believe. No personal common sense with you deary.

      • Socialist welfare baby parental government dependent freebie receiving bottom feeder who would defend any demonrat provider. ALL demonrats must be defended, because they are all connected by corruption, greed, graft, blackmail, and the general filth of any back alley hole-in-the-wall . . .

  4. This should come as no surprise, and is why the Dems are trying to create a crime against President Trump. I think that whether you like Trump or not, he has done a great job in his 3 years, so far. He has had to fight against the Dems and the Dem leadership for the 3 years and before. They are power hungry and will stoop to anything, legal or illegal, to oust our President. I hope that the current legal Dem voters realize that the party is stacked against them; they have resorted to a form of slavery in their support of socialism.

    • https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2019/11/21/confidence-in-trump-economy-hits-highest-level-ever/

      This is one of the reasons to put President Trump back into office in 2020. You are not enslaved if you are able to stand on your own two feet, make a living, make choices on your own finances. Gives you a sense of pride to take care of your own, and not rely on a Government.

      We the People are not to succeed. Just those who feel our success is theirs to squander on family, friends and globalist votes from illegal aliens. Money laundering to them is a BIG business. Illegal, but hey they feel they are above the law. And We the People are NOT allowed to question the “Nanny”.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    • “A great job for 3 yrs. & before”? Let’s see—pulled out of the Paris Environment treaty, pulled out of the Iran nuclear agreement, passed a tax cit for the top 1%, admitted to asking foreign assistance in our elections, treats anyone who doesn’t agree with him like s–t, embarrassed us in front of most of the world, loves dictatorial gov’ts (Russia, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Turkey). Oh yeah, a great job.

      • Oh Boo hoo, all of Obama’s legacy going to pot. Paris Environment (lol) treaty would have cost us Billions. Iran nuclear agreement, heck Obama gave them a pallet of money to purchase their first nuclear weapon. An UNSTABLE regime. How grand. Regarding foreign assistance, gee, can’t wait for that FISA report, and also Ukraine looking into the loss of SO MUCH money.

        And for someone who didn’t agree with Obama, just ask the Conservative groups that Obama had the IRS to go after. And let’s not forget any naysayers of anything Obama did was called a racist. Obama embarrassed this Country. Obama hated this Country, and Obama THOUGHT he was a dictator, but had lots of strings attached to Globalists. lol

        GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

      • Laurie Mac Millian , President Trump is the first President in many years that LOVES the USA and is NOT taking Crap and being soft on matters. Respect for our Nation in business dealings, as Obama brought us into Trillions of DEBT. The GIVE AWAY MONEY to IRAN. The selling of Uranium to Russia, and the list goes on. You have your views but many believe to our deaths , President Trump is bringing about many corrections for former presidents errors and/or indifferences. We are Living in one of the Greatest Nations in the World. We made it thru the Obama terms, and it is now the Trump/Pence Train into 2020 . God Bless the USA !

  5. Isn’t it interesting that this amount of 7.4 bil was never reported by the news? And that we apparently didn’t really do anything about it, but continue to send money to amount to the total in question. And then Biden’s son suddenly get’s a whopper of a job where he does nor contributes absolutely nothing. And the fact that Obama and Hillary are linked in there also with this crap. I personally believe that this insane push to impeach President Trump, with the insane speed, and blatant disregard for rule of law by the Democrat Socialists is quite alarming for one, somewhat unsurprising as well given the fact that Democrat Socialists constantly lie, and change their stances on any policy in a heartbeat, and second it really shows how desperate they are to oust him because of how many Democrat Socialists are linked to all this money laundering, because that’s what it amounts to. Guliani found that Biden received $3 mil alone to his bank account through a round about banking transfer that originated from the Ukraine! And given the fact that in the past Bill Clinton has threatened that if they were to take down Hillary, that he would expose half of congress that would send them to jail. Maybe that’s what they need to do, is take down Hillary, then the flood gates of information of how many of the Democrat Socialists are on the take, and outright crooks. I mean, how the hell do you lose 7.4 billion dollars? Especially after the first 1.8 billion was lost in the first transaction, and there didn’t appear to be much of any questions about it! And then they send another transaction, when the first one hadn’t been found or solved?! Noooo, no corruption there, no crooks there! They were hoping and figuring that Hillary would win, and that they could continue their master money laundering without anyone the wiser. When you have all these Democrat Socialists that are toeing the line regardless how insane the policy they’re supporting, it begins to beg the question, how many of them are on the take, because it’s interesting how many Democrat Socialists suddenly end up millionaires after their turns in office! Based on the sordid history of the Democrats, how they fought to keep slavery, how they fought against the blacks getting civil rights, how they created the welfare system to keep people just content enough to believe their lies and deception… it’s clear that their entire party is corrupt beyond description. And they want Trump out, because a lot of them are about to be exposed.

  6. I wonder why we have not heard anything about this i know that we want here a thing out of the main steam media the truth is not in them but other outlets this stinks to high heaven it’s not Ukraine’s money it’s Americans tax payers money.

  8. This is why the democrats wanted to impeach Trump from day one, not only for being a GOP president but rather not them as democrats being exposed to their swampy swamp

  9. Corrupt politicians need to be investigated and held accountable but because the bias media will not do their jobs this will never come out and to light especially since this is what President Trump was trying to expose.

  10. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/11/21/nunes-by-the-numbers-democrats-not-trump-got-caught-seven-times/

    “They got caught falsely claiming they had more than circumstantial evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians to hack the 2016 elections.

    They got caught orchestrating this entire farce with the Whistleblower and lying about their secret meetings with him.

    They got caught defending the false allegations of the Steele dossier, which was paid for by the Democrats.

    They got caught breaking their promise that impeachment would only go forward with bipartisan support because of how damaging it is to the American people.

    They got caught running a sham impeachment process featuring secret depositions, hidden transcripts, and an unending flood of Democrat leaks.

    They got caught trying to obtain nude photos of President Trump from Russian pranksters pretending to be Ukrainians.

    And they got caught covering up for Alexandra Chalupa—a Democratic National Committee operative who colluded with Ukrainian officials to smear the Trump campaign—by improperly redacting her name from deposition transcripts and refusing to let Americans hear her testimony as a witness in these proceedings.”

    Thank you Rep Nunes. Schiff got caught LOTS of times. Thank you and your Team for actually trying to get FACTS into this “Schiff Storytime Hour”.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  11. This needs to be copy and pasted to every social media and Facebook pages of every TV, newspaper, and radio station. Also to the public share on FB. Everyone on this stream can get this out in the forefront by passing this info on thru social media. Also post on House Representatives and Senate FB pages. Don’t let the media cover up this story any longer. We the people have the power to expose the corruption.

  12. I would really like to hear a translator with this… Only thing I recognize is “Biden”… More important, this should be covered by our networks… Think we’ll hear all about it? LOL

  13. https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2019/11/21/pelosi-evidence-is-clear-trump-used-of-office-for-personal-gain-undermined-the-integrity-of-our-elections/

    Nancy is confused. Biden, Obama and Clinton used their offices for personal gain. And let’s not forget Kerry and his former chief of staff.

    Hey Nanc, I hear thru the grapevine your son got a chance to cash in in Ukraine?

    https://www.oann.com/son-of-house-speaker-pelosi-made-money-in-ukraine/

    lol, pathetic at best Nancy. Try again.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  14. No they did not ask for forgien assistance and no they never admitted to doing it cause they didn’t (GOP) . You are a typical LIBTARD spreading the usual nonfact based news. Wake up. You and your socialist democratic party should never have gotten a foothold in American government. Let alone run it.

  15. Finally – obozo is directly connected to the grand prize in the rape – pilfering and looting of ukraine…
    They all had a hand in it and are guilty even judges but mostly the lawyers that set it up….
    F**k the dems and their BS……WE THE PEOPLE must invoke Article lll section 3 and deal with these traitors…..Article lll section 1 to deal with judicial tyranny…
    The founding fathers were a lot smarter than ya think……THEY wrote it into the constitution over 200 years ago…..

  16. Lawrie—Well ain’t you just a brainless little dickweek. Look that 1 up. And all of America knows no-bama the muslim pig and his whole administration was corrupt except you idiot ass democRATS. You rats are some dumb mf’ers. Get a clue before you open your cock holster, dickweed…

  17. “Not one scintilla of scandal”-Barack Obama (2018) said of his administration. I think what he meant is there was not a hint of a scandal that was reported by the media. The media knew about many of his scandals, they just didn’t report them (If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, did it really happen?). Then, there are the scandals that no one actually knew about (mostly due to the lack of curiosity of the media) like the ones that are popping up today. Remember, Hillary was supposed to be president today and all of these scandals were to be buried by her. If everyone had just walked away when Trump won, these scandals would probably have remained a secret, but Obama decided he had to set up a resistance to destroy Trump’s presidency and it is blowing up in his face, spectacularly. The only thing left to do is to count the number of his administration who are jailed or discredited.

    • Never liked him, but feeling a bit sad (just a little lol) watching him deteriorate in front of the American People. Looks like Hilary Clinton .2, propping up this Globalist loser like they did for Hilary. You know what they say about Karma. And boy in the next few months, We the People will see what justice is all about.

      Hopefully a few of the Republicans who thought globalists were the way to go, instead of focusing on America First, don’t throw up smoke and mirrors because Karma goes both ways for both parties.

      We the People DESERVE better. We got in President Trump, who in his campaign said he would “drain the swamp”. It must be drained for We the People to have the Government WE elected. Not globalists or their American paid for representatives.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!
