As far as Joe Biden is concerned, any whisper that there might have been something untoward about his son’s employment with Ukraine’s Burisma Holdings is malicious fake news. Slander! Libel! A mean-spirited attempt for President Trump to draw attention away from the fact that he committed TREASON in a phone call with the Ukrainian president!
So concerned is Biden that anyone discuss Hunter’s job with Burisma and what it might have meant, politically, for the company and the Ukrainian government’s access to Obama…that he actually demanded that news networks stop interviewing Rudy Giuliani. This is how desperate Biden is to keep this story from actually being reported.
Biden has said that Hunter Biden’s work with Burisma had absolutely nothing to do with his own position as “point person” on all matter Ukraine in the Obama administration. In fact, he’s gone on record to suggest that he barely knew what his son was up to.
“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden told reporters last month. “I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him why is he on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader. You should be looking at Trump.”
Not so fast there, Joe. Because now, thanks to the intrepid reporters on Tucker Carlson’s show, we know that you, Hunter, and Devon Archer – board member of Burisma – played golf together in 2014. Fox News published the photo on Monday, drawing fresh questions about the extent to which the former vice president might have been tied into the company’s decision to bring Hunter on board. And more importantly, the extent to which this hire gave them access to good White House favor.
So, are we expected to believe that Biden golfed with his son and his Burisma buddies at the Hamptons without ever once bringing up Hunter’s “overseas business dealings”? Is that what we’re being asked to swallow? Are we supposed to take it on faith that Biden didn’t orchestrate the firing of Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin because he was investigating Hunter and the company he worked for? Why would we extend this benefit of the doubt to Joe Biden when the circumstances look so dirty? Why we would give it to Biden when we won’t do the same for Trump?
Oh right, he’s a Democrat. How silly of us. Carry on then.
