Ruslan Ryaboshapka, former Prosecutor General of Ukraine, who had launched an audit of thousands of old case files by Ukrainian prosecutors, stated that no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Hunter Biden had been found, Reuters reports.
According to Ryaboshapka, the audit was intended to probe whether cases he had inherited from his predecessors had been handled properly.
“I specifically asked prosecutors to check especially carefully those facts about Biden’s alleged involvement. They answered that there was nothing of the kind,” he stated.
Ukraine's ex-Prosecutor General also stated that there had been no pressure on him.
“Regarding the call to Zelensky and this story with Burisma. I can say that there was no pressure on me. The audit was completed," Ryaboshapka added.
As we reported earlier, U.S. Senate committee voted to issue a subpoena as part of its investigation into Hunter Biden, former Vice-President Joe Biden’s son.
Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted 8-6 to subpoena Blue Star Strategies, a lobbying firm that was a consultant to Burisma, a gas company in Ukraine that paid Hunter Biden to serve as a board member.
