A damaging photo showing former Vice President Joe Biden, son Hunter and Ukraine Gas Company executive Devon Archer, golfing in the Hamptons in 2014 has just been released complements of Fox’s own Tucker Carlson.
The photo disputes Biden’s statements earlier this month when interviewed by Fox News in Iowa.
“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden said, pointing the finger at President Trump. “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.”
The deflection at the time seems to be an ongoing attempt by the Biden camp to intimidate anyone asking embarrassing questions regarding the illegal “pay-for-play” frenzy exhibited by both the former Vice President along with the former Secretary of State, during their tenure under the Obama Administration.
The Biden camp actually attempted through a series of tweets and emails to interfere with news outlets seeking to book the President’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani on their show.
“We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump,” the two advisors wrote, according to the letter obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. “While you often fact-check his statements in real-time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.”
However, the 2014 photo, while Joe Biden was Vice President should dispel any reservation that Biden didn’t know what his son was up too. And no doubt was the reason why Biden demanded the firing of the prosecutor, after the bottom-fell-out of Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings, in which board member Devon Archer (the gentlemen pictured in the 2014 photo), appeared along the Biden’s.
Compounding matters further was Biden’s 2016 video acknowledgment that he successfully pressured the Ukraine Government to fire its top prosecutor Viktor Shokin, with a debunked allegation that Shokin was corrupt. At the time, Shokin was investigating Burisma Holdings, in which the younger Biden was racking upwards of $50,000 a month, with virtually no experience.
The shakedown included a $1 billion dollar aid package that Biden had threatened to hold back if Shokin was not immediately fired.
“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired,” Biden joked at a panel discussion about two years after leaving the White House.
The renewed interest in the Biden connection to Ukraine, along with the whistleblower complaint may have had unintended consequences for the teetering frontrunner, in that the more information concerning Biden’s involvement, the more investigators are probing.
Just last week acclaimed investigative reporter John Solomon unearthed never before seen documents that shed light on how the American team (under President Obama), attempted to help Burisma Holdings stave off its legal troubles, that would undoubtedly implicate Hunter Biden, and also put the former Vice President in a negative light with voters.
Moreover, the most troubling revelation within the documents is how days later after Biden’s ultimatum that Shokin be fired; American legal representatives met with Ukrainian officials and offered “an apology for the dissemination of false information by U.S. representatives and public figures” about the Ukrainian prosecutors.
The Obama administration admitted that it was all an attempt to get young Biden off the hook… the Ukrainian Government at the time went along with the ruse, simply because they needed the aid package, and corruption was a way of life for them.
Moreover, no one counted on President Trump to win the White House, thinking it was Hillary’s turn in the corruption trough.
