A former Obama administration staffer is alleging President Biden was involved in a “kickback scheme” in connection with his son Hunter’s overseas business dealings while he was vice president.
Mike McCormick, a stenographer for the White House for 15 years, told “Fox & Friends First” the FBI has been ignoring his alarms on the matter despite his willingness to testify under oath before the federal grand jury investigating Hunter.
McCormick claims he has evidence that Biden funneled American money overseas to “enrich” himself and his family and used his own influence to aid his son’s rookie energy career. He references a key dialogue involving the vice president, aide Jake Sullivan, and the press on Air Force Two before a trip to Kyiv, Ukraine, on April 21, 2014. Sullivan outlined in a White House transcript Biden’s priorities for the trip, which included U.S. investment in the Ukrainian energy sector days after Hunter joined the board of Burisma. Months later, and well after the trip, Congress allocated $50 million to Ukraine’s energy market.
Hunter joined the board of the Ukrainian natural gas firm on April 18, just three days before Biden and his team traveled to Kyiv, although that was not made public until May 12.
McCormick is adamant that he wants to present the information he has under oath before the Delaware grand jury led by U.S. Attorney David Weiss. The probe into Hunter’s alleged violations began after suspicious activity reports (SARs) regarding suspicious foreign transactions were flagged. Those SARs involved money funneled from “China and other foreign nations,” according to sources familiar with the probe.
McCormick believes that the evidence he has incriminates Biden, and likely more officials he worked with, in connection with the alleged influence-peddling scandal. He also claims that Obama should be called in as a witness and questioned about what he knew about the situation, pointing out that Biden and Hunter had a meeting in the White House two days before Hunter joined Burisma and then Biden spent a day in the limousine in the back of Obama’s limousine in western Pennsylvania.

Biden has repeatedly claimed he had not spoken to his son regarding his overseas business dealings. However, McCormick’s allegations suggest that Biden was fully aware of what Hunter was doing.
