The FBI shared its concerns that President Joe Biden and his son Hunter may have been bribed by a Ukrainian businessman with the prosecutor leading the investigation into the younger Biden, according to recently revealed documents. The latest revelations will likely add fuel to the ongoing investigation by the House Oversight Committee into the Biden family’s business dealings.
Pittsburgh FBI field office reportedly told U.S. Attorney David Weiss that several details related to a possible bribe from Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky had been corroborated.
Hunter Biden had served on the board of the Ukrainian energy company at a rate of pay of about $1 million per year while his father was vice president.
The FBI office in Pittsburgh served as the law enforcement agency’s center of investigation regarding Ukraine. The field office allegedly told Weiss that some details from an FBI form regarding a possible bribery scheme were correct.

Last week, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released details from the FD-1023 form.
The office confirmed several meetings described in the FD-1023 form but did not have the ability to subpoena more information.
Weiss said earlier this month that the form and its details were part of an ongoing investigation.
Weiss wrote to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) regarding the “allegations contained in an FBI FD-1023 Form related to an ongoing investigation. As such, I cannot comment on them at this time.”
Zlochevsky also allegedly stated that he had 17 audio recordings of conversations with Joe and Hunter Biden. Grassley described this as a form of “insurance policy.”
The latest information also came after testimony from a number of IRS whistleblowers who allege that the Department of Justice improperly interfered in the investigation into the president’s son.
According to statements from former IRS investigator Gary Shapley, Weiss had attempted to charge the younger Biden twice but was rebuffered by U.S. Attorneys from California and Washington D.C.
Hunter Biden will reportedly plead guilty to several misdemeanor tax and firearms charges on Wednesday in an arrangement that will likely keep him out of prison.
