During an interview with PBS News Hour, Joe Biden was caught on a hot mic trying to claim he did not know anything about his son being on the board of Burisma Holdings — but he was contradicted by his own son’s statements on the matter, according to Breitbart.
While being interviewed, Hunter Biden stated that Joe Biden told him in 2015: “I hope you know what you are doing.”
I Know Nothing…
Biden was asked during the interview why he proclaimed that it’s “improper” for family members to serve in the administration, but it was apparently fine for his own son to secure a highly lucrative position with Burisma during his time in the White House.
Biden responded: “I did not know he was on the board of that company… In fact, no one has asserted on the board that it was illegal for him to be on the board or that he did anything wrong”
To put into perspective how ridiculous this claim by Joe Biden is, Hunter Biden was making millions on the board of directors for the Ukrainian energy production giant, yet Joe Biden would like us to believe he and his son never discussed where this money was coming from.
We know, however, this is a complete lie. First, Hunter Biden traveled to Asia with Joe Biden on Air Force 2, then met some of Hunter Biden’s business contacts. Secondly, Hunter Biden himself told the media he had discussed the situation with his father.
After being appointed to the board of Burisma, the Ukraine energy company where he was being paid at least $50,000 per month while having no experience in the energy sector, Hunter said his father briefly discussed it with him.
“Dad said, ‘I hope you know what you are doing,’ and I said, ‘I do,’” he said.
More Lies from Biden
Joe Biden was the point man for the Obama administration for Ukraine. It would have been his staff’s duty to point out possible conflicts of interest.
According to reports, that concern was expressed to Joe Biden and quickly dismissed by the VP. An email was even sent to then-Secretary of State John Kerry by one of Hunter’s business associates about the business dealings of Hunter.
With all of this evidence against Joe Biden, though, the media continues to push the narrative that Trump is the one that is corrupt.
Trump is doing his best to expose the corruption of Democrats while they are trying to impeach him simply to protect their party from him fully exposing it.
