Giuliani implicates Cyprus in Biden claim

Cyprus gets a mention as White House is under pressure to release Ukrainian phone transcript

Newsroom

President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has implicated Cyprus in Ukrainian money laundering assertions he has made regarding Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

Giuliani, a former mayor of New York City and a former presidential candidate, dropped a bombshell on Twitter linking the Bidens and allegations of Ukrainian money laundering through Cyprus.

“NEW FACT: One $3 million payment to Biden’s son from Ukraine to Latvia to Cyprus to US. When Prosecutor asked Cyprus for amount going to son, he was told US embassy (Obama’s) instructed them not to provide the amount. Prosecutor getting too close to son and Biden had him fired,” Giuliani wrote on Monday.

Reports said the top prosecutor was voted out of office and his replacement, who carried out the investigation, found no evidence of wrongdoing by the Bidens

Giuliani claims a prosecutor looking into possible wrongdoing and financial dealings in Ukraine had been removed under sinister motives.

Trump and Giuliani have been accusing the former vice president of bribing government officials in Ukraine to slow-walk investigations into Burisma Holdings, a gas company for which Hunter served on the board.

When Prosecutor asked Cyprus for amount going to son, he was told US embassy (Obama’s) instructed them not to provide the amount. Prosecutor getting too close to son and Biden had him fired.”

But reports said the top prosecutor was voted out of office and his replacement, who carried out the investigation, found no evidence of wrongdoing by Joe Biden or his son.

Ukrainian quid-pro-quo probe

Joe Biden, a presidential hopeful for 2020, said the allegations were not credible while additional reports said the claim dates back to May this year and only resurfaced as Trump is under investigation to release a transcript of a phone conversation he had with the Ukrainian president.

Following a whistleblower’s complaint, the White House is now under pressure to release the transcript between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a phone call in July.

Former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld has accused President Trump of "treason" for pressing Zelensky to investigate Biden.
