During a sit-down interview with Tucker Carlson, Hunter Biden’s ex-business partner confirmed the salacious truth: then-vice president Joe Biden fired a Ukrainian Prosecutor to help his son’s business deals.
Former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin posed a threat to Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company paying Hunter Biden $84,000 per month. In September of 2016, then-Vice President Biden bragged about how he used a $1 billion loan guarantee to pressure Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko into firing Shokin.
“You remember last year I was authorized to say we’d do the second tranche of a billion dollars. And he didn’t fire his chief prosecutor. And because I have the confidence of the president, I was there, and I said: I’m not signing it. Until you fire him, we’re not signing, man. Get it straight. We’re not doing it,” Biden said at an event held by the Council on Foreign Relations.
Devon Archer, who sat on the Burisma board with Hunter Biden, told Tucker Carlson:
“Shokin was considered a threat to the business. I think any anyone in. Again, you’ve got to get the signals to the government. I think anyone in government is always a threat and always trying to shake down these businesses that were highly successful and and enriching the owners and the staff and the board. And so at the end of the day, Shokin was taking a look,” Archer replied.
“And I, and again, I wasn’t involved in Shokin or any of this, but he was a threat, he ended up seizing assets of Nikolai. House, some cars, a couple of properties. And Nikolai actually never went back to Ukraine after Shokin seized all of his assets. And the case was- I mean obviously this it’s all out there,” Archer continued.
“And the case was that Shokin, there was all this pressure to fire Shokin from this, you know, the larger community. And then he was fired and then somehow Burisma was let off the hook. I mean, that’s what the story was.”

Biden to lift sanctions on China in exchange for third promise to combat fentanyl
Reportedly President Joe Biden is making deals with Chinese President Xi Jinping to help improve anti-drug trafficking measures. China is one of the top fentanyl producers and distributors, culminating in a pandemic of fentanyl overdoses and deaths in the United States.
The Biden administration will be lifting sanctions on a Chinese government ministry, in exchange for bolstering anti-drug trafficking measures, Bloomberg reported. “We’re hoping to see some progress on that issue this coming week,” National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said Monday, according to the New York Post. “That could then open the door to further cooperation on other issues where we aren’t just managing things, but we’re actually delivering tangible results.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation noted that should a deal materialize, it will be at least the third time that China has promised to get tough on fentanyl. In 2016, China agreed to increase counter-narcotics operations, and Xi again agreed to launch a crackdown in 2018. Nonetheless, China and Mexico are “the primary source countries for fentanyl and fentanyl-related substances trafficked directly into the United States,” according to a 2020 DEA intelligence report.
“China remains the primary source of fentanyl and fentanyl-related substances trafficked through international mail and express consignment operations environment, as well as the main source for all fentanyl-related substances trafficked into the United States.”
President Joe Biden and Xi are meeting for the first time in over a year during this week’s Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in San Francisco. Sources familiar with the situation told Bloomberg that the People’s Republic of China (PRC) will crack down on Chinese companies manufacturing chemical precursors for fentanyl in exchange for the U.S. lifting sanctions on the Ministry of Public Security’s Institute of Forensic Science, which the Commerce Department added to the Entity List in 2020 for “engaging in human rights violations and abuses” in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
