WASHINGTON – Ukraine’s top prosecutor said he hasn’t seen any evidence of wrongdoing by former Vice President Joe Biden nor his son Hunter Biden in dealings with the country.
Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said Hunter Biden and Burisma, a Ukrainian private gas company of which the younger Biden served on the board, were not the targets of investigations by his office.
He also said the former vice president, and current Democratic 2020 hopeful, didn’t act improperly when he called for the dismissal of Ukraine’s former prosecutor general, Victor Shoki, who had been investigating the company.
“I do not want Ukraine to again be the subject of U.S. presidential elections,” Lutsenko said in an interview with Bloomberg. “Hunter Biden did not violate any Ukrainian laws – at least as of now, we do not see any wrongdoing. A company can pay however much it wants to its board.”
President Trump’s allies – including Donald Trump Jr. – have suggested the Bidens acted inappropriately. The president’s outside lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, had threatened to travel to Ukraine to investigate things on his own, but has since canceled those plans.
“All the reports indicated that not a single, solitary thing was inappropriate about what my son did,” Biden told WMUR in an interview this week.
