Ukraine will reportedly open an investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, if President Donald Trump formally asks, according to the Daily Beast.
Anton Geraschenko, a senior adviser to the country’s interior ministry told the Daily Beast that, “Trump is now looking for kompromat to discredit his opponent Biden, to take revenge for his friend Paul Manafort, who is serving seven years in prison We do not investigate Biden in Ukraine, since we have not received a single official request to do so."
KYIV—Ukraine is ready to investigate the connections Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden had with the Ukrainian natural-gas company Burisma Holdings, according to Anton Geraschenko, a senior adviser to the country’s interior minister who would oversee such an inquiry.
Geraschenko told The Daily Beast in an exclusive interview that “as soon as there is an official request from the Trump administration, we’ll look into it,” but “currently there is no open investigation.”
What’s certain is that American and Ukrainian politics are closely connected these days, and on Thursday evening Giuliani admitted he had asked officials in Ukraine to investigate Biden. Giuliani told CNN’s Chris Cuomo in a contentious interview there is nothing wrong with pressing for an investigation into corruption.
