He may be the first witness called but you can be sure there will be many more. The Republicans own the Senate even with traitor Mitt Romney aiding his liberal comrades. Andrii Telizhenko, ia a former Ukrainian embassy official and former consultant for Blue Star Strategies, a firm that Burisma hired to fight against corruption allegations.
He has handed over documents to the committee but only a few can be shared because of a non disclosure agreement but if he is subpoenaed those documents can be viewed. His testimony could be interesting since Blue Star was desperately seeking a meeting with the State Department. When they felt they would not get a meeting they told the State Department that Hunter Biden was a board member of Burisma.
The investigation is meant to determine whether Hunter Biden traded on the family name for personal gain. The answer is obvious. No company is looking for a drug addict with no experience, otherwise Shia LaBeouf would be on the board of every company in the world.
Republicans have been investigating whether Hunter Biden leveraged his father’s position as vice president to help Burisma, which has long been dogged by allegations of corruption.
Hunter Biden, who joined Burisma’s board in April 2014, is reportedly who linked the energy company up with Blue Star Strategies. Biden served on the board of the Truman National Security Project, a liberal national security think tank, with Sally Painter, one of Blue Star’s co-founders.
“As part of the Committee’s ongoing investigation, it has received U.S. government records indicating that Blue Star sought to leverage Hunter Biden’s role as a board member of Burisma to gain access to, and potentially influence matters at, the State Department,” Johnson said in the letter.
State Department records show that Painter and her Blue Star co-founder, Karen Tramontano, reached out to top State Department officials through 2016 to set up meetings to discuss Ukraine and Burisma.
