President Joe Biden reportedly snapped at a reporter at a news conference on Thursday after the reporter inquired about an alleged scandal involving a bribery scheme that Biden is accused of being involved in while serving as vice president in the Obama administration.
According to a secret FBI source, a CEO at the Ukrainian gas business Burisma paid Biden and his son, Hunter, potentially up to $5 million apiece in bribe money.
The claim is made on an FD-1023 form that the FBI generated based on an interview they had with an FBI confidential human source in June 2020.
“Why did the Ukraine FBI informant file refer to you as the ‘Big Guy,’ President Biden?” conservative reporter Steven Nelson asked.
“Why do you ask such a dumb question?” Biden asked in response.
While Biden was still vice president, the unnamed source allegedly had several meetings and discussions with the Burisma executive about how to acquire U.S. oil rights and build relationships with a U.S. oil firm.
When questioned why he required counsel with Hunter Biden on the board, the CEO allegedly said that Hunter Biden was “dumb.”
According to the article, the executive allegedly informed the executive that the company had to pay the Biden family because Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin was looking into the business and it would be difficult for the company to enter the U.S. market given the conditions.
