Consulting Firm Tied to Burisma Hit by DOJ Criminal Investigation

The Justice Department is investigating a Democrat consulting firm tied to Burisma Holdings, which Hunter Biden was on the board of, for potentially illegal lobbying. The investigation into Blue Star Strategies follows the Justice Department’s increase in investigations of foreign entities’ attempts to influence U.S. politics, so far most of these investigations have been focused on Republicans connected to former President Trump.

Politico reports:

One focus of the investigation is whether the firm failed to comply with disclosure requirements under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, a law that requires Americans to disclose lobbying and public affairs work for foreign officials and political parties. There is no indication that Hunter Biden is a target of the investigation into Blue Star. Karen Tramontano, one of Blue Star’s co-founders, testified that Hunter Biden did not direct any of the firm’s work for Burisma.

But it is the firm’s work for Burisma Holdings, an energy company based in Ukraine facing allegations of corruption, that has subjected Blue Star to government scrutiny. Blue Star did not disclose its work for Burisma in any federal lobbying databases. Such disclosures would have revealed when the firm started working for Burisma and when it concluded its work.

In November 2015, its co-founders took on a troubled client: Burisma Holdings, an energy company based in Ukraine whose founder tussled with British authorities over millions of dollars and who faced accusations of corruption from the then U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. Then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was on the company’s board at the time.

According to Congressional testimony, Blue Star’s co-founders met with U.S. government officials as part of their work for Burisma. They had not disclosed to the Justice Department that Burisma was a client, which could potentially put them in legal jeopardy, said a former top DOJ official.

According to sources, there has already been grand jury activity related to the investigation.

Another distraction from the real issues of open borders, record inflation and crime jumps, shutting down energy exploration, buying oil from Iran, sending money to Hamas, Antifa and BLM riots and terrorism, the Fausi fiasco, Russian hacking of our industries and Chinese aggression. Nothing to see here folks except a worthless investigation. Where’s Hunter? Where’s Durham? Where’s the cop that shot Ashli and the investigation?

There is ONE BRIGHT STAR in all this. Trump is finally recognizing that everyone who praises him and claims to be GOP – ain’t. Finally, after so may stabbed him in the back, Trump is publicly identifying RINOs.

Stop the bull poop, democrats are not liable for crimes, the Department of Injustices is a criminal organization for the democratic communist party. If there was justice just a few names our joke of a justice department ignored, Clinton emails, Obama and government cabinet heads in the failed coup on Trump, the FBI one party police force and the FISA bogus warrants, the joke Mueller investigation, non arrest of the anarchist communist armies of the democrats and our 98% one party bias brain washing propaganda media, press, magazines, fake reporting news, politicians who commit crimes with democrats in bed with Chinese communist while in the Intel committee no punishment. After the bogus election, we were told you cannot have a federal investigation, or federal court hearing, after endless till this day, federal funded investigations for made up accusation by democrats against political enemies. Think about it, powerful prosecutors using federal monies or state monies for witch hunts against political enemies. No one in the this dictatorship who commits crimes gets investigated, and those who questions the illegal government get punished. We listen to the senile crook Beijing Biden tell us there is a threat to democracy, and he means anyone who questions their illegal criminalized federal government. This federal government to include the illegal majority in congress is a cancer to a once free people, a deadly cancer to the very survival of the republic. The loss of sovereignty as a nation, that millions fought and died or were injured in battle to protect means nothing to our illegal masters , they took those rights away calling themselves protectors of democracy, after committing open acts of treason against their own people. We must peacefully pray God might save us from tyranny.

Washington DC, the entire government, Democrats, Republicans, FBI, DOJ, CIA, NSA, Pentagon are all corrupt, totally. Nothing ever happens to all Washington creeps but how fast they move for the so called white supremacist. Democrats and Republicans are just out for themselves and mostly idiots but the FBI and DOJ has to be the worst because they are supposed to enforce the law. Where is John Durham? How can Comer, Clapper and Brennan lie to Congress yet nothing happens. We’re sunk, too many crooks in DC.

CURRENT DOJ investigating “illegal lobbying” by a demo firm associated with Burisma which employed Hunter Biden and investigation of Burisma halted by poppa Biden. REALLT?????

Does ANYONE expect this to be a REAL investigation? If you do, I have several ocean front properties in Arizona to sell. Pull your head out of your dark place! This is nothing more than the demo method to CLEAR Hunter and poppa from any sort of wrong-doing.

How long is this “B.S.” gonna go on? “Ad infiinatum” But the “CHURCH” would probably “say”, “no eternity.”. America is so “FED UP” with lies,”double speak”, “gobbledygook” & “dancing around the TRUTH! “MOST” people speak in sentences with complete thoughts! Obama “started” the “hemming & hawing”& “parsing his words” with a lot of “ums”, “ers”& “redefining” “WORDS”! Biden’s administration “re-defines” EVERYTHING that “we” KNOW” is TRUTH! Infrastructure “IS” roads , bridges, streets, dams, river flooding, dune erosion, tree planting, forest re-seeding & de-forestation. “IT” does NOT INCLUDE “SOCIALIST PROGRAMS”! So much for communism. “HE” should convert “HIS” home in Delaware to a communist commune! “He” can afford to have 20+ immigrants living there!

Come here, work hard & you CAN ACHIEVE THE “AMERICAN DREAM’. Biden “IS” DESTROYING “US”! He’s RACIST, “c’mon man”, Deli’s “speak” Indian, “If you are black”, vote for me. Give me a break!”WE” KNOW that the man is a MORON with “NO” cognitive abilities. He’s on amphetamines to “keep him going. Remember how Hillary “needed help “standing”/ walking/ falling? SAME “THING”!

Why is it that every news channel reporter knows the crimes being done and it seems every elected official also talks about them but I have failed to see anywhere someone saying “I am going to do something about it and then do it.” These people have the power to actually do something but nobody is actually doing whatever is needed to get it done to stop the bleeding of citizens money down the rabbit hole.
