There is yet another controversy swarming the White House, but the media seems to be focusing on the wrong angle for the story.
After Democrats demanded the release of the transcript of the conversation between Trump and the Ukrainian president, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo put the transcripts on lockdown and said that the White House would only give them up under the “most extreme circumstances,” according to The Hill.
Where the media should really be looking at is how Joe Biden’s son made so much money in Ukraine (and China). The reason Ukraine is of so much importance is because of Joe Biden’s role in how this all played out.
The company Biden’s son was working for was under investigation by Ukrainian prosecutors. Joe Biden led a group of representatives to Ukraine who were there to offer financial support.
However, during the discussions, Joe Biden reportedly told Ukrainian leadership if the prosecutor was not fired, there was no way the United States was going to write the check.
The prosecutor was fired, the investigation was halted, Ukraine got a big check, and Biden’s son was at the heart of the windfall. The media does not seem interested in that story in the least bit, though.
What Did Trump Say?
Instead of investigating Joe Biden, the media is trying to find out if Trump said anything incriminating to the Ukrainian president.
A whistleblower has come forward stating that Trump asked Ukraine to start an investigation into Biden to help Trump win the election.
Trump, however, has denied any wrongdoing at all and so far, Ukraine’s president has stated the conversation was nothing more than an informal hello.
When asked about the discussion by the media, Trump stated there was no “quid pro quo,” and as the Ukrainian president stated, it was just a nice conversation between two presidents.
While Pompeo has refused to turn over the transcript of the conversation to the media, he did tell them that he thinks Trump is right about Biden. Pompeo stated” “I do think if Vice President Biden behaved inappropriately, if he was protecting his son and intervened with the Ukrainian leadership in a way that was corrupt, I do think we need to get to the bottom of that.”
The fact Congress has not even brought this subject up is stunning, considering how deeply they continue to investigate Trump. If this same allegation had been made against the current president, you had better believe hearings would have already been scheduled on the matter.
