Ukrainian former prosecutor Viktor Skokin said on Fox News Channel on Sunday that he believes Joe and Hunter Biden were bribed and that his firing was at the behest of the then-vice president.

“I have said repeatedly in my previous interviews that Poroshenko fired me at the insistence of the then-Vice President Biden because I was investigating Burisma,” Shokin said through a translator.

“You understood me correctly. This is how it was,” he added. “There were no complaints whatsoever and no problems with how I was performing at my job. But because pressure was repeatedly put on Poroshenko, that is what ended up in him firing me.”

When asked if he believed that the Bidens were receiving bribes, he answered in the affirmative.

“I do not want to deal in unproven facts, but my firm personal conviction is that, yes, this was the case," he said. "They were being bribed. And the fact that Joe Biden gave away $1 billion in U.S. money in exchange for my dismissal, my firing — isn’t that alone a case of corruption?”

Well, it's extortion at least, but somehow the Bidens just keep getting away with it.
