Democrats on the House Oversight Committee are stepping up to defend GOP claims of a bribery scheme between Joe Biden and a foreign national.
Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin actually produced evidence from the 2019 impeachment hearings of Donald Trump that rebuts the GOP’s claims.
- That document is from a 2019 questionnaire filled out by Mykola Zlochevsky, the co-founder of the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma, where Hunter served on the board. The questionnaire was given to Rudy Giuliani’s associate Lev Parnas.
- Parnas handed over the questionnaire to the House committees investigating the former president, and it was later obtained by the FBI when it seized Parnas’ phone in 2019. It was never released to the public during the impeachment investigation.
When asked to detail contacts between then-Vice President Biden and his office from 2013 to 2019, Zlochevsky wrote (in all caps):
“NO ONE FROM BURISMA EVER HAD ANY CONTACTS WITH VP BIDEN OR PEOPLE WORKING FOR HIM DURING HUNTER BIDEN’S ENGAGEMENT.”

Hunter Biden’s lawyer also issued a blistering letter Friday to the Clown House GOP Committees determined to push claims of pay-to-play bribery between Hunter and Joe Biden — without evidence.
Hunter’s lawyer Abbe Lowell is now taking the lead in fighting back against the Republican-led committee.
Last week Chair Jason Smith released transcripts of interviews of
whistleblowers IRS agents who claimed that the investigation into Hunter Biden was improperly handled along with a fake WhatsApp message that showed Hunter leveraging his father to close a business deal.
- Smith has now joined forces with House Oversight Chair James Comer and House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan.
In the letter, Hunter’s attorney said the IRS agents interviewed may be claiming the title of whistleblower “in an attempt to evade their own misconduct,” and claims that the “timing of the agents’ leaks and your subsequent decision to release their statements do not seem innocent.”
Lowell also addresses the WhatsApp “message” released by the committee.
“The screen-grab images you posted are not real and contain myriad of issues….In short, the images you circulated online are complete fakes.”
Lowell also pointed out that the image featured a profile picture of Hunter Biden was a photo from 2022, five years after the 2017 message was allegedly sent.
