According to today’s elite squatters in Washington DC, there’s no such thing as a ‘conflict of interest’ anymore…
Whether it’s Senator Harry Reid and son Rory’s involvement in lucrative land deals and the BLM’s federal racketeering behaviour in Nevada, or Senator Diane Feinstein and husband Richard Blum’s inside track contract award to sell 56 buildings located on prime commercial real estate that currently house U.S. Post Offices, or Dick Cheney and family’s shareholdings in Haliburton and fortunes reaped during his tenure as Vice President and thereafter – the men and women of Washington DC see absolutely no problem with filling their family pockets and trust funds on US tax payer time.
HYPOCRITE: Biden pictured with ‘Yatz’. Biden is on record as condemning ‘corruption in Kiev’.
In exactly the same vein, Obama’s Vice President Joe Biden, who has been pushing hard to demonise and disrupt Russia and Gazprom’s relationship with Kiev, while supporting the heavily NeoFascist coup de tat in Kiev, Ukraine – just happens to have a son who just happens to be working as the ‘head of legal affairs’ at Burisma, Ukraine’s largest private gas producer. The conflict of interest – or the outright collusion involved here is fairly blatant.
On his recent ‘business trip’ to Kiev, Biden proclaimed, “Imagine where you’d be today if you were able to tell Russia: keep your gas. It would be a very different world”.
He also had the stones to condemn the Ukrainians for their government corruption, crowing arrogantly, “To be very blunt about it … you have to fight the cancer of corruption,” he said.
No word from Joe on this latest revelation, and son Hunter Biden, sees no problem at all with this geopolitical corporate love triangle. “I believe that my assistance in consulting the company on matters of transparency, corporate governance and responsibility, international expansion and other priorities will contribute to the economy and benefit the people of Ukraine”.

Son of U.S. Vice President Biden Joins Ukraine Gas Company

In a statement published Monday on its website, Burisma Holdings announced Hunter Biden would join its board of directors and head the company’s legal unit.
“As a new member of the board, I believe that my assistance in consulting the company on matters of transparency, corporate governance and responsibility, international expansion and other priorities will contribute to the economy and benefit the people of Ukraine,” Hunter Biden said in the statement.
Burisma owns several Ukrainian oil and gas companies, including Esko Pivnich and Pari, Lenta.ru reported Tuesday. The company also has assets in Ukraine’s Dnepr-Donetsk, the Carpathian and the Azov-Kuvan basins.
Burisma produced 11,600 barrels of oil equivalent, or boe, in 2013 and was planning to increase its production in Ukraine by 35-40 percent in 2014, U.S. financier and member of the board of directors Devon Archer told newspaper Capital in late April.
Hunter’s father, as U.S. Vice President, has repeatedly rebuked Russia for its reported involvement in Ukraine and has pledged to support efforts to reduce its dependency on Russian energy.
