UNITED STATES—On Thursday, September 26, Judicial Watch announced the Freedom Of Information Act (FIOA) lawsuit for records concerning the firing of Ukraine’s top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin.

According to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch stepped forward to file a new lawsuit regarding the firing of a top Ukraine prosecutor that was allegedly investigating Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. The firing allegedly took place at Joe Biden’s insistence with the threat of Ukraine losing aide from the United States.

Fitton indicated the reason for the new lawsuit was at the request of repeated requests for documents being ignored.

Matthew Miano, Broadcast Coordinator for Judicial Watch interviewed Fitton.

Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:19-cv-02893).

Miano asked Fitton regarding the alleged, ‘whistleblower’ who Fitton stated was an anti-Trump supporter and one of his Democratic opponents.

“The latest assault on President Trump is an obvious attempt to protect Joe Biden from the corruption scandals involving his son,” said Fitton. “Judicial Watch’s latest lawsuit will be the first of many to try to get to the bottom of this influence-peddling scandal,” he added.

Telephone transcripts have been provided and can be seen on the White House website under Statements & Briefings.

According to reports, video footage depicts former Vice President Joe Biden admitting about his own multiple trips to Ukraine. He indicates on one occasion that there was a discussion on loan guarantees, where $1 billion was at stake. Biden boasted that he told the powers that be, that either they fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin, or the $1 billion was off the table. Biden said they doubted him and he suggested they call former President Barack Obama.
