He also mentioned in the interview that Joe Biden had submitted a request to remove him from the position of Attorney General. In the interview, many also expressed their belief that Joe Biden accepted bribe money from Burisma.
He added that he had no doubts that Burisma was involved in illegal activities, among which Sokin mentioned the illegal extraction and sale of natural gas.
