In the most unbelievable turn of events, Biden, who has acted as if Hunter’s $80K per month Ukraine job was no big deal has had a change of heart. He is now blaming his staff for the mess by saying that nobody told him that Hunter’s Burisma job could be a conflict.
What an absolute cowardly liar.
Can you imagine this man holding any real power again? He’s either a liar or a complete incompetent buffoon who can’t make decisions on his own. Either way, he’s a big loser.
However, we all know Biden knew exactly what he was doing and he didn’t care.
Joe Biden is a smug elite and a career politician who believes he and his family are entitled to whatever they want. He’s been part of our system for so long now that he thinks he owns it and can run it how he sees fit.
And now, after Hunter’s scandal couldn’t be swept under the rug with a flash of his denturey smile and a few cheesy “Uncle Joe” phrases he’s in panic mode and is throwing his staff under the bus.
Joe is worried and he should be – things are going to get much worse.
Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed in a new interview that when his son Hunter was a board member of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while he was in office, no one informed him that it could pose a problem.
Biden insisted again that Hunter did nothing wrong, but this time appeared to fault his staff for not cluing him in that there could be concerns about his son’s involvement with the foreign company that had been under investigation while Biden was in office and dealing with Ukraine policy.
“Nobody warned me about a potential conflict of interest. Nobody warned me about that,” Biden told NPR in a story posted Monday.
State Department official George Kent addressed this during his testimony as part of the impeachment inquiry of President Trump, acknowledging that he told staff members there was concern over the appearance of a conflict of interest, but that no one told the vice president because his older son Beau was suffering from what was ultimately a fatal battle with brain cancer.
“They should have told me,” Biden says now. Hunter’s dealings and the elder Biden’s role ousting a prosecutor looking into Burisma are being used by Trump and his supporters against the now-2020 presidential candidate, even as Trump’s effort to press for an investigation into that conduct has spurred the impeachment inquiry.
“The appearance looked bad and it gave folks like Rudy Giuliani an excuse to come up with a Trumpian kind of defense, while they were violating the Constitution,” Biden said.
Trump’s impeachment inquiry has focused primarily on his request for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens, as well as Democratic activities during the 2016 election. Democrats have accused Trump of using a White House visit for Zelensky and the delay of military aid to Ukraine as leverage. [Fox News]
