“There is a new recording of Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Poroshenko. The first recording came out in May and it involved Biden getting Viktor Shokin fired and the second in which Poroshenko asked for help from Biden to keep Alexander Onyshchenko away from the FBI.

Now, here’s a strange coincidence. Both men were later allegedly poisoned. Onyshchenko was arrested in Germany as he was on his way to Washington to testify against Joe Biden. Germany threw him in prison, where he was allegedly poisoned.

You may remember the first audio in which Biden and Poroshenko discussed the firing of Shokin, who was investigating Burisma, Hunter Biden, and money laundering.

Here is a partial transcript:

Poroshenko: (7:10 mark) I have some good news… Yesterday I went and seat with the general prosecutor’s office.

Joe Biden: Yes.

Poroshenko: …. I especially asked him to resign… as his position as a state prosecutor…He promised to give me a statement of his resignation… One hour he gave me a statement of his presentation.

Joe Biden: Great!….

Joe Biden: (10:20 mark) I am prepared to a public signing for a commitment for a billion dollars. Again I am not suggesting you want it or don’t want it. I am suggesting that is what I am prepared to do. Again it won’t be finalized… Let me when you and I finished speaking let me huddle with my team… I agree with you there is a sense of urgency here.

Joe Biden — (14:30 minute mark) Congratulations in getting the new Prosecutor General. I know there’s a lot more to that. I really think that’s good. It is going to be critical that he works to repair the damage of Shokin. I’m a man of my word. Now that the new prosecutor general is in place we’re ready to move forward to signing the one billion dollar loan guarantee. And I don’t know how you want to go about that… I’ll leave it to you to how you want it done and where you want it done.

Excerpt from local Ukrainian press…

Poroshenko thanked Biden for his help in the fight against Onishchenko.

Ex-President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in December 2016 thanked US Vice President Joe Biden for help from the CIA in the fight against Alexander Onishchenko.

Record of the corresponding conversation at a press conference on June 22 was announced by people’s deputy Andrei Derkach.

So, in December 2016, Poroshenko during a conversation with Biden was very worried about Onishchenko’s communication with the FBI. He told Biden that he would like to know what was at stake. Biden assured that he had already talked with the FBI and that they would not work with Onishchenko.

And in another conversation, Poroshenko already thanks Biden for the help of the CIA in the fight against Alexander Onishchenko.

Onyshchenko was arrested on an Interpol warrant by Ukrainian authorities in late 2019 in Germany as he was traveling to the United States to testify against Biden during the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

Former Prosecutor Shokin was poisoned and was even dead for a few minutes before the doctors were able to revive him.”
