Former Ukrainian chief prosecutor Viktor Shokin has claimed Joe Biden committed bribery and extortion in his country.

In an interview with Rudy Giuliani Wednesday, Shokin said Biden pressured former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to get him fired over an investigation into energy company Burisma.

Shokin said Biden was threatening to withhold the loan guarantees that Ukraine needed at the time. Giuliani added, Biden admitted to that himself.

Shokin also said Poroshenko had no choice but to dismiss him, allowing Hunter Biden to continue his corrupt dealings at Burisma under the protection of Joe Biden who was vice president at the time.
