Marie Yovanovitch Admits She Was Coached By Obama State Department on Biden Ukraine Controversy Before She was Ever Even Hired
Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik got former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch to admit she had been coached by the Obama State Department on Hunter Biden and Burisma before she was ever hired.
“The first time you personally became aware of Burisma was actually when you were being prepared by the Obama State Department for your Senate confirmation hearing. And this was in the form of practice questions and answers. This was in your deposition,” Rep. Stefanik began.
Elise Stefanik continued, “And you testified that in this particular practice Q&A with the Obama State Department, it was not just generally about Vurisma and corruption, it was specifically about Hunter Biden and Burisma. Is that correct?”
Yovanovitch responded: “Yes, it is.”
And that’s when Rep. Stefanik dropped her bombshell revelation: “And the exact quote from your testimony Ambassador is, quote, the way the question was phrased in the Q&A was: What can you tell us about Hunter Bidens, you know, being named to the Board of Burisma?”
The revelation that the Obama Administration asked specifically what she could tell them about Hunter Biden and Burisma Holdings adds more credence to the notion that Barack Obama and the Democrats were more than aware of the political implications of the Democrats during the 2016 elections.
To add more legitimacy to this concept, it has been well recorded that Hunter Biden’s former business partner Chris Heinz, who is also the son-in-law of then-Secretary of State John Kerry, was offered a board position on Burisma himself in 2014 alongside Hunter.
Instead of accepting, however, Heinz turned down the high paying job out of fear of possible corruption implications thanks to Burisma’s reputation.
Heinz tried to warn his friends Hunter Biden and Devin Archer of the same issue, however, they ignored him. As a result, he terminated all relationships with the two to avoid association.
The entire current Ukraine scandal focuses on President Donald Trump’s efforts to get to the bottom of the potential corruption on the board of Burisma Holdings and its impact on the 2016 election.
