Joe Biden Should Be ‘Impeached And Imprisoned’

Former White House stenographer Mike McCormick wrote in a new book that President Joe Biden ought to be “impeached and imprisoned” for promising to give money to Bursima Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company that hired Hunter Biden.

Based on passages from McCormick’s book, The Case to Impeach and Imprison Joe Biden: The Family’s Foreign Influence-Poaching Conspiracy in Ukraine, Townhall’s Rachel Alexander reported that Joe Biden was involved:

McCormick became aware of the criminal nature of the activity after poring over the emails on Hunter Biden’s laptop, which allowed him to put it all together.

“When I worked for him, I thought Joe was harmless — egotistical, buffoonish, and unpresidential, but harmless,” he said. “Now I think of him as an evil criminal who should be impeached and imprisoned.”

McCormick served as Biden’s stenographer when he was vice president from 2011 to 2017, transcribing every speech and interview. He said he personally witnessed Biden negotiate the Burisma kickback scheme — U.S. funding to Ukrainian energy, primarily Burisma, in exchange for putting Hunter Biden on Burisma’s board of directors — on a trip to Poland in 2014. He came to a lot of conclusions that other reporters haven’t figured out, due to his unique position and intensive study of this issue.

Jake Sullivan, Biden’s former national security assistant, is at the core of the controversy, Breitbart News recently reported.

McCormick recalled that on April 21, 2014, Sullivan, in the guise of an anonymous “senior administration official,” informed reporters aboard Air Force Two that the United States had plans to support the natural gas sector in Ukraine.

Townhall’s Alexander reported the book’s excerpts:

McCormick said the “evidence of the crime” was right there in the briefing, “right when Sullivan declares that Joe’s U.S. taxpayer-supported energy assistance for all of Ukraine will be directed to ‘extract unconventional gas resources’ and support ‘energy efficiency.’” He pointed out how Sullivan cleverly altered the wording from “shale gas” to “unconventional gas resources” to disguise it. Burisma was only one of a handful of Ukrainian companies with a license for fracking at that time.

Hunter Biden was a member of the Burisma board before his public disclose at that time. It wasn’t until May 12, 2014, almost a month after Sullivan made his statement to reporters, that the company revealed his position on the board.

McCormick recounted Sullivan’s statement to reporters on the flight: “The U.S. would specifically offer “technical assistance relating to a regulatory framework, and also the technology that would be required to extract unconventional gas resources, and Ukraine has meaningful reserves of unconventional gas according to the latest estimates.”

 

Hunter joined the board in April 2014, two years before Joe Biden stated he forced the firing of Ukraine prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who investigated Burisma. Despite Hunter’s lack of experience in Ukraine or the energy sector, Bursima paid him $83,000 per month, or $1 million per year — just weeks after the Obama administration announced his father as “point person” on U.S. foreign policy on Ukraine.

In 2015, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion from Ukraine if the Ukrainian government did not fire the prosecutor who was investigating Burisma.

Two years before Joe Biden’s claim that he coerced the dismissal of Viktor Shokin, the Ukraine prosecutor who looked into Burma, Hunter became a board member in April of 2014.

Just a few weeks after the Obama administration designated his father as the “point person” on U.S. foreign policy regarding Ukraine, Bursima paid Hunter $83,000 per month, or $1 million annually, despite his lack of experience in the country or the energy industry.

In 2015, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion from Ukraine unless the government of that country removed the prosecutor in charge of the Burisma investigation.

After visiting Ukraine six times in seven years as vice president, Joe Biden left the White House in 2017, cutting Hunter’s pay in half.

A new Gallup poll spells more bad news for Biden’s reelection as campaign and White House officials struggle to reverse his tanking approval rating.

“Americans are less likely now than they were in 2020 to believe several positive personal qualities and characteristics apply to President Joe Biden,” the polling firm noted, tweeting out the poll’s key findings.

“The biggest decline has come in the percentage believing Biden can manage the government effectively, but his scores are down at least six percentage points on each characteristic,” the pollster added.

Gallup conducted polls on both Biden and Trump regarding the following characteristics: “Can manage the government effectively,” “Is likable,” “Displays good judgment in a crisis,” “Is a strong and decisive leader,” “Cares about the needs of people like you,” and “Is honest and trustworthy.”

Although Biden experienced a decrease of 13 to 6 points in each category, he still outpaced Trump in three out of the six areas.

Biden scored higher in “Is likable” (57% compared to 37% for Trump), “Cares about the needs of people like you” (48% compared to 42% for Trump), and “Is honest and trustworthy” (46% compared to 35% for Trump).
