Ukraine Asks FBI To Help Probe Alleged Burisma Hack

Ukraine has asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to assist in its probe of a suspected cyber attack by Russian military hackers on Burisma – an energy company owned by a notoriously corrupt oligarch who paid Joe Biden’s son Hunter more than a fortune 500 board member to sit on its board.

President Trump’s request to investigate Burisma’s relationship with the Bidens is at the heart of impeachment proceedings brought by Democrats.

On Monday, the New York Times reported that Silicon Valley cybersecurity firm Area 1 claims that Russian hackers from a military intelligence unit known formerly as the G.R.U. operating under the alias “Fancy Bear,” used so-called phishing emails that appear designed to steal usernames and passwords, to gain access to Burisma’s network.

“It is noted that the hacker attack most likely took place in cooperation with the Russian special services,” said Ukrainian Interior Ministry official Artyom Minyailo at a briefing, where he added that the FBI had been asked to assist in the investigation. The interior minister later announced an investigation into claims that former US ambassador to Kiev, Marie Yovanovitch, was illegally surveiled.

Of note, Area 1 was co-founded by two former NSA hackers – one of whom was a lead employee at cybersecurity firm Crowdstrike, which was the only company allowed to analyze the DNC servers in connection with a 2016 breach – which it concluded “fancy bear” was also behind. Area 1 founder Oren Falkowitz is an active donor to Democrats, contributing to the 2020 election campaigns of both Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker.

      1. That is correct! But the DOJ, as with the FBI, are entities within themselves! FBI needs to be stripped of charter and all authorities channeled to the individual states. There is no trust, in the FBI, as there shouldn’t be, because they are forever caught up in situations anyone else would be in prison for. They, the FBI, are overpaid, over entitles and are completely untrustworthy.

    1. You seem to be confused. This Russian hacking of Burisma occurred last year, November 2019. The US president would not normally get involved with incidents like this in another country that had no indication pertaining to American interest. However, the FBI and NSA do assist foreign governments in some types of investigations, as foreign security agencies assist US intelligence agencies.

    2. FBI recall how they seek to destroy evidence and create illegal evidence ? Just to takedown a individual. Courts have went alone with these tactics !!! Justice is blind. But if Government wants you In prison , so be it .
      Time to let Trump clean out these vipers make our country safe again Justice for all.

  1. “President Trump’s request to investigate Burisma’s relationship with the Bidens”

    This isn’t quite right based on testimony of Trump’s people and documents they provided. The President did not ask for an investigation, he asked for an “announcement” of an investigation.

    1. Which testimony is that? You don’t have an answer, do you? This is just a sequel to the Goldilocks (Killary) and the Three Bears fairy tale made from whole cloth by Crowdstrike. Laughable.

  2. What is it going to take for people to see the truth? The Democrats can not win (look at their line-up) in a honest straight up race they have to cheat, lie or as Pelosi told everyone.
    “We make up a story, then tell the (Fake News). They then report it and we (the Democrats) can say see the news said. And it all started from a lie they told the press. Sick sick sick. This country use to have respected journalist now they are all Democratic spin Dr’s.

    1. Ah, Roxy. What does this story have to do with the Democrats? Or is your point that any ol’ conspiracy theory will do?

      1. Area 1 founder Oren Falkowitz is an active donor to Democrats, contributing to the 2020 election campaigns of both Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker.

        This cane from the ARTICLE above. So it looks to have a lot to do with the Democratic Party. This article DEFINITELY shows it’s NOT our President that’s wrapped up in all the corruption. It’s the Democrats. But it doesn’t take a “Rocket Scientist” to know all this.

  3. Patients is a virtue that will yield valuable results. The truth will not remain hidden, it just takes time to turn over every rock to find the slithering snakes hiding underneath.

  4. At this point, I wouldn’t trust a damn thing the F.B.I. has to state about foreign intelligence. These people are bias as hell and have their own agenda on what our country should be involved in. You think J.Edgar Hoover was corrupt, these people are off the charts Corrupt…

    1. since the 60’s the FBI has been dropping down to the darker side of the deep-state. manufacturing evidence, loosing evidence, breaking the chain of evidence that is so critical in ANY investigation. they have been slowly but shurely turning into a democrat protection agency.

      1. I agree with your comment and its frightening to think of the ramifications of these criminals acts by one of our supposedly highest law governing agencies in our country. This needs to be addressed post haste!

  5. Sounds to me like the Bidens are asking for Russian help to cover their tracks. Or maybe Russia is just trying to mess with the Dems. Can’t understand why they don’t like them. Just kidding, why would anyone like them.
    MAGA 2020! Vote Trump/Pence!

    1. You are exactly right; Buddy H. This ALL stinks to high heaven. Just like this other IDIOT that’s facing many years in prison. And he comes on the Rachel Meadow show right AFTER Nancy Pelosi & all her crooked minions finally turned over these “BOGUS” Articles of Impeachment. And stupid Pelosi really thinks the MAJORITY of TRUE AMERICANS are going to believe this man is speaking TRUTH??? He answered a question & changed his answer not once but THREE times. And she says she doesn’t HATE our President??? SHE’S NOTHING BUT A LIAR.

  6. This is too funny!! The Ukraine government asks for the FBI to assist in this investigation but the DNC refused to allow the FBI’S computer forensic experts to examine THEIR computers rather, they relied on Crowdstrike??? How convenient Area 1, formed by former members of Crowdstrike, (who just happened to finger the Russian hackers of the DNC system right down to the Russian Military Unit involved) is now on the case and doing the same thing. By the way, what is this private group doing probing a private corporation’s computer system anyway??? The same shit that happened with the alleged hack of the dems is happening again and the same assholes are there to attempt to taint ANY INVESTIGATION.

    1. Michael Graham ; It looks like you may be on exactly the right track. It is just TOO CONVENIENT that the New York Times has announced at THIS time that Ukraine has asked the American FBI to investigate “a suspected cyberattack by Russian hackers on Burisma” energy corporation in Ukraine. “Area 1” employees, formerly of Crowdstrike (Silicon Valley leftists) who were the only ones allowed to examine Hillary Clinton’s home-based server, and claimed that Russians had hacked it ; have apparently now started a pre-emptive effort to interfere with a truthful examination of Hunter Biden’s bogus arrangement with Burisma – the arrangement which occurred during Joe Biden’s Vice Presidency Of the U.S.A. This issue WILL BE BROUGHT OUT during the Senate trial of the impeachment of President Trump – if witnesses are called !!! The President is chief law enforcer of the nation, through the agencies serving that purpose, because he is the CEO of the nation, and the Constitution charges him with that, among other things. What the leftists will attempt is to have an empty “investigation” and declare the Bidens to be “not guilty.”

      1. There is a plan in place. We MUST follow the plan and it can not be rushed.
        If President Trump had come into office and started arresting criminals …
        the crooked judges would have turned them all loose, with a slap on the wrist.
        The first part of the plan was to rework the judicial system by appointing a new group of Constitutional judges.
        Since President Trump was elected, millions of dollars have been spent to remodel and update the prison at Guantanamo.
        Last month 1,000 members of the Tennessee National Guard were deployed to serve at the Guantanamo prison.
        Criminals are going to be held accountable but our Government would struggle if they were all removed at one time.
        Some of these criminals will be voted out of Office, some of these criminals will be fined and fired, and for some of these criminals … ARRESTS ARE COMING.
        Everything is going according to the plan. The plan must be followed and it can not be rushed.
        The (report) from IG Horowitz came out to get the cRats and RINOs to expose their crimes by trying to cover them up.
        The coverup is always what finishes exposing the criminals.
        Next we have information coming out from Rudy Giuliani … and it will be damning for some of these criminals.
        This whole plan has been to awaken the American people, open their eyes, and allow them to think for themselves. Dark to light.
        When the CRIMINAL INDICTMENTS come out from AG Bill Barr and US Attorney Durham … the right people must be in place in the judicial system and the American people must be ready for what is coming.
        The criminals that are coming out against President Trump have to be exposed before they can be removed.

        The sky is NOT falling ◇ The economy is booming ◇ 7 million new jobs created ◇ Lowest unemployment in over 50 years ◇ Record high stock market ◇ USMCA ◇ Trade deal with China ◇ Trade deal with Japan, South Korea, and others ◇ Two Constitutionalists added to the Supreme Court ◇ Over 180 Federal Judges and Circuit Court Judges appointed ◇ Over 8,000 negligent VA Hospital employees fired ◇ Terrorists killed ◇ Removing troops from the Middle East ◇ Jerusalem acknowledged as capital of Israel ◇ The wall is being built ◇ Constitution being upheald ◇ WOW 17 ◇
        ARRESTS ARE COMING, SOON.
        WE MUST BE PATIENT.
        THE PLAN IS WORKING.
        TRUMP/PENCE ~ KAG ~ 2020 ~ WWG1WGA

        1. I pray that you are right! Makes sense. I cannot wait for all the “REAL CROOKS” to fall into a hell of their own making!! That will be a HAPPY DAY!

  7. Ukraine has asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to assist in its probe of a suspected cyber attack by Russian military hackers on Burisma. Well thats like asking the Fox to Guard the Hen house….Isn’t it!

  8. ROFLMAO…….do you think Ukraine may be trying to get back at Biden for his criminal activities??? I hope so. There is no reason for us NOT to assist if we can.

  9. It sounds to me like the Democrats are trying to hack Burisma to wipe any indication that Joe Biden was also being paid by Burisma and any others that were involved.

  10. Boy, it won’t be long now before we have some real answers as to what the hell has been going on in DC and the Ukraine. We have a group made of up Crowdstrike and the FBI (two of Hillary’s favorite organizations) doing a thorough investigation of what went on during the 2016 election. Soon, the Democrats will be firing up the Russian collusion accusations again (there is trouble in the hen house and two foxes are going to see if they can figure it out). They also intend to investigate why Ambassador Yovanovitch was surveiled and fired (I remember when the poor baby testified before Schiff’s kangaroo court how distraught she was about both vile actions). However, I have also read that she dictated to the Ukrainian government who was to be left alone when investigations were going on, then when some of the Ukrainian prosecutors ask to come to visit our DoJ to tell them about the corruption going on between the US and Ukraine governments, she refused to issue them a VISA so they could not come. In other words, she was a big part of the corruption.

  11. Something smells namely Area 1. Look who the founders are, what they claimed, and their history. Why would they even be involved in Burisma unless to erase some evidence concerning the Bidens. And for Ukraine asking the FBI to get involved is highly questionable itself. Stay tuned for an exciting Ep. 2 “FBI uncovers massive plot within Burisma management to take out Santa Claus.”
