This is not good news for Joe Biden. His phone call to Ukrainian President Poroshenko has had its transcript released. That is part of his campaign to get Ukrainian’s top prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired.
The Democrats were not worried about what Joe Biden and his son did in Ukraine but they decided that President Trump asking about their corrupt actions was an impeachable offense. Strange, isn’t it.
Quid Pro Joe proposed a deal whereby Shokin would be fired and then Biden would be willing to sign a one billion dollar loan guaranty. That is exactly what they accused our president of doing.

Poroshenko: (7:10 mark) I have some good news… Yesterday I went and seat with the general prosecutor’s office.
Joe Biden: Yes.
Poroshenko: …. I especially asked him to resign… as his position as a state prosecutor… He promised to give me a statement about his presentation… One hour he gave me a statement of his presentation.
Joe Biden: Great!….
Joe Biden: (10:20 mark) I am prepared for a public signing for a commitment for a billion dollars. Again I am not suggesting you want it or don’t want it. I am suggesting that this is what I am prepared to do. Again it won’t be finalized… Let me when you and I finished speaking let me huddle with my team… I agree with you there is a sense of urgency here.
Joe Biden — (14:30 minute mark from November 2016 call) Congratulations on getting the new Prosecutor General. I know there’s a lot more to that. I really think that’s good. It is going to be critical that he works to repair the damage of Shokin. I’m a man of my word. Now that the new prosecutor general is in place we’re ready to move forward to signing the one billion dollar loan guarantee. And I don’t know how you want to go about that… I’ll leave it to you to how you want it done and where you want it done.
Joe Biden tells Poroshenko: We will help you get the vote… Let me ask you one thing before I forget, Privatbank… This is getting very, very close. What I don’t want to have happened. I don’t want Trump to get into *** where he thinks he’s about to buy into a situation… where it is about to collapse where he is going to pour more money into Ukraine… So anything you can do to push the Privatbank to closure so that the IMF loan comes forward I stress this is critical to your economic and national security.
Privatbank was owned by the same man who owned Burisma. It is alleged to have been used for money laundering.
