Default Biden tells Peter Doocy to ask the right questions

Apparently Joe thinks he can also tell Fox news what to report on.

I would be a little worried if I were Peter. I hope he doesn't have an "Accident"

Joe does NOT want to talk about Ukraine.

The story behind Biden’s son, Ukraine and Trump’s claims

By STEPHEN BRAUN and LYNN BERRY

WASHINGTON (AP) — In 2014, then-Vice President Joe Biden was at the forefront of American diplomatic efforts to support Ukraine’s fragile democratic government as it sought to fend off Russian aggression and root out corruption. So it raised eyebrows when Biden’s son Hunter was hired by a Ukrainian gas company.

The Obama White House said at the time that there was no conflict because the younger Biden was a private citizen. And there’s been no evidence of wrongdoing by either Biden.

Yet the matter is back in the spotlight following revelations that President Donald Trump prodded Ukraine’s president to help him investigate any corruption related to Joe Biden, now one of the top Democrats seeking to defeat Trump in 2020. Trump’s private lawyer Rudy Giuliani has also publicly urged Ukrainian officials to investigate the Bidens.


Hunter Biden was named a paid board member of Burisma Holdings in April 2014. The company’s founder was a political ally of Viktor Yanukovych, Ukraine’s Russia-friendly president, who was driven out in February 2014 by mass protests.

Yanukovych’s ouster prompted the Obama administration to move quickly to deepen ties with Ukraine’s new government. Joe Biden played a leading role, traveling to Ukraine and speaking frequently with its new Western-friendly president.

The younger Biden’s business role raised concerns among anticorruption advocates that Burisma was seeking to gain influence with the Obama administration. At the time, the company ran a natural gas extraction operation in Crimea, a Ukrainian peninsula annexed by Russia after Yanukovych was pushed from power.

Hunter Biden has denied using his influence with his father to aid Burisma. He remained on the board through early 2019, often appearing at energy-related conferences abroad representing Burisma’s interests.

On Saturday, the former vice president said he never speaks to his son about his overseas business dealings.

The matter, however, has continued to be questioned by Trump and his allies. They’ve pointed in particular to Biden’s move in March 2016 to pressure the Ukrainian government to fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who had previously led an investigation into Burisma’s owner.

Biden was representing the official position of the U.S. government, a position that was also supported by other Western governments and many in Ukraine, who accused Shokin of being soft on corruption.


Corruption has continued to fester in Ukraine. In May, the country’s new president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, came into office with no political experience but with bold promises to put an end to the corrupt practices.

Around this time, Giuliani began reaching out to Zelenskiy and his aides to press for a government investigation into Burisma and Hunter Biden’s role with the company.

In a Fox News interview on May 19, Trump claimed the former Ukrainian prosecutor “was after” Joe Biden’s son and that was why the former vice president demanded he be fired. There is no evidence of this.

Ukraine’s current prosecutor, Yuriy Lutsenko, was quoted by Bloomberg News in May as saying he had no evidence of wrongdoing by Biden or his son. Bloomberg also reported that the investigation into Burisma was dormant at the time Biden pressed for Shokhin’s ouster.
Sounds like the current prosecutor is in The Obama administrations pocket.
I notice that the article doesn't say WHY the former prosecutor was fired.

No evidence of this, just made something up. Lying to the country and his base yet again.

Best part of all this "squirrel!" noise towards Biden is he might not even be the nominee. And the more Trump pushes this non-story about Biden and his son, the more he keeps his real abuse of power in the light.

Maybe he should start thinking of a new name to call Liz Warren.

So are you saying that Hunter was not on the board of that company?

Or are you saying that the company was NOT being investigated?

Why was Joe so adamant about them firing a prosecutor in the Ukraine before they received a billion dollars from the Obama admin.? Why would he care so much about this Ukrainian prosecutor?

Well sonny, Biden's son WAS working for the company in the Ukraine from 2010 until just this year and said company WAS being investigated by the prosecutor in question and Biden DID get the prosecutor fired, in fact he bragged about it.

I see that no one has talked to the former prosecutor

No evidence? There is a ton of circumstantial evidence but it's Biden so circle the wagons and tout any denial from the gaffe master as gospel.

Why would any company hire Hunter Biden with a long history of substance abuse and no expertise or experience in business to promote them? No reason except for being Joe Biden's son. It defies logic to claim there was some other reason the company poured millions into his pocket.

Then there is the dueling Bidens. Joe claims he never spoke with his son about his overseas dealings. Hunter says otherwise. Are we really supposed to believe Hunter spent all that time traveling with daddy on AF2 without ever speaking about business? That's incredible.

Oh but wait, guess who Joe chauffeured at taxpayer expense to China? Why son Hunter of course. It turned out to be very worthwhile, the Chinese spurned established investment firms in favor of lavishing more than a $ billion on Hunter's investment firm despite once again having no qualification besides being Joe Biden's son.

Of course to the Resistance Democrats there is only Orange man bad. Evidence of Biden's corruption is no evidence at all.

Democrats are telling their minions not to watch, or listen to, Bidens videotaped admission. Like Biden said, Trump is the story. So don't ask questions, unless they are about Trump.

Just because Biden is on video saying he blackmailed the Ukraine, doesn't mean there is a story worth talking about

Ukraine is ALL about Biden and his cocaine addicted son.
Democrats just trying to deflect away from Biden and make it about Trump.

Biden and Bernie are both history. Pocahontas will be the nominee.

One has to wonder since Uncle Joe got close to a million dollars if he gave more to charity this years. Since he usually only gives a few hundred dollars to charity.

Before Hunter Biden joined the board, and the investigations ended without turning up anything on the Bidens.

Biden, the US, the EU, and the IMF all wanted the prosecutor fired, because ironically he was blocking corruption investigations. Even the Republicans were on board with it back in 2016. There was widespread agreement in the western world that the existing prosecutor had to go, and given that cases against Burisma had long been dormant, there really was no benefit whether or not the guy was ousted.

Fun though to watch Trump supporters complain about alleged nepotism.
