Viktor Shokin, Ukraine’s prosecutor who was fired in March 2016, told Rudy Giuliani earlier this year that he was told to stop his investigation into a natural gas firm linked to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, Fox News reports.  

“Mr. Shokin attempted to continue the investigations but on or around June or July of 2015, the U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt told him that the investigation has to be handled with white gloves, which according to Mr. Shokin, that implied do nothing,” according to Giuliani’s notes obtained by the news outlet.

Details of Giuliani’s sit-down with Shokin were given to Congress by the State Department’s Inspector General on Wednesday.

Shokin, in an affidavit that surfaced last week, said he was forced out of office because he was leading a “wide-ranging corruption probe” into Burisma, the company whose board of director’s Biden’s son sat on.

Shokin was fired in 2016 “after months of demands from the country’s pro-reform and anti-graft community for his failure to investigate the corruption of fugitive President Victor Yanukovych’s regime. Yanukovych was ousted in the EuroMaidan Revolution in 2014 and fled to Russia,” according to a report in the Kyiv Post.

But President Donald Trump and Giuliani have been pushing a different narrative: that Shokin was fired at the request of Biden in order to protect his son.
