Ukraine’s top prosecutor has announced his office will review cases overseen by his predecessors – including a probe of Burisma Holdings, where Hunter Biden made millions serving on the board.
Fox News’ Edmund DeMarche has more:
Ruslan Ryaboshapka, the country’s prosecutor general, said at a news conference that his office was instructed to review cases that have been closed, fragmented or investigated to make sure they were fairly and thoroughly handled. He said no one attempted to influence him to make the call.
“We are now reviewing all the cases which were closed, fragmented or investigated earlier in order to make a decision on cases where illegal procedural decisions were taken,” he said.
The office plans to review 15 cases that previously were closed, including the Burisma case. This does not yet mean Ukraine is opening a new investigation involving Burisma or the Bidens.
His comment came as the Trump White House fights an impeachment inquiry that involves allegations that President Trump used military funding as part of a “quid pro quo” with Kiev to investigate Biden and his father, former Vice President Joe Biden.
President Trump continues to deny any wrongdoing. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he never felt any pressure from Trump.
