Skip to comments.Biden caught lying: Says He Never Discussed Hunterís Ukraine Deal. Hunter Says He Did
Posted on 09/22/2019 2:37:03 PM PDT by Liz
Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed he never discussed Hunter Bidens business dealings in Ukraine. However, a July article from The New Yorker belies that contention. I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings, Biden told Fox News reporter Peter Doocy on Saturday in Iowa before calling on President Donald Trump to be investigated over a phone call he made to Ukraines president.
The New Yorker article, titled Will Hunter Biden Jeopardize His Fathers Campaign? is an in depth look at Hunter Bidens life and business dealings. It also contains a segment where Hunter apparently recalled discussing Ukrainian natural-gas producer Burisma just once.
In December, 2015, as Joe Biden prepared to return to Ukraine, his aides braced for renewed scrutiny of Hunters relationship with Burisma. Amos Hochstein, the Obama Administrations special envoy for energy policy, raised the matter with Biden, but did not go so far as to recommend that Hunter leave the board. As Hunter recalled, his father discussed Burisma with him just once: Dad said, I hope you know what you are doing, and I said, I do.
The inconsistency was pointed out on Twitter by Daily Mail U.S. political editor David Martosko:
During a July 25 phone call, a whistleblower claims President Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at least eight times to investigate Hunter Bidens business dealings in the country. However, a senior administration official told Fox News Ed Henry that the call contained no quid pro quo, and that it would be in the presidents interest to release the call transcript.
Trump denies any wrongdoing and called the whistleblower highly partisan.

Dems lie when their lips are moving but they are NEVER held accountable since they are Dems and they know they will always have the media to cover their asses
Biden is a supreme gaffe machine
Like no other we’ve ever seen
Frequent stumbles during his campaign
And now he’s lying about Ukraine
Come on, man!
A democRAT got caught lying?
Seems to me that it would be far more note worthy if he got caught telling the truth, don’tcha think?
they are crying about Trump going after Biden...but who will be the first “rat” candidate to beat him over the head with this Ukraine stuff...i say Kamala...heh
Even if everything was legit (which it’s not) wouldn’t a good father keep tabs on his son regarding what’s going on in his life? And wouldn’t a son having success be proud to report it to his father?
Slimy, sleepy Joe is in deep do-do. With any luck he’ll suffocate in it.
I guess like Biden’s War Hero story lies ... well Hunter’s also a hero ... so ... just details.
My tag line says it all
Joe. That’s a breach of contract. What do you think the Ukraineans are paying Hunter all that money for. They expect you to talk to Hunter about issues important to the Ukraine. And not just talk either. Talk is cheap, not that a couple of million kickbacks on a billion dollar payout isn’t cheap. That’s a couple of mils, not even close to 1%. So not only are you corrupt and a liar. You are a cheap whore to boot.
I’m sure it does. I don’t read vanity tag lines, no offense.
You don’t read vanity tags??? We went to all of that trouble to make one and you won’t read it? Shame on you.
LOL. The print’s too fine for these old eyes.
the interwebs make liars of us all...
Biden lies. In other news water is wet. Hes a Democrat. Democrats lie about almost everything.
Nice try Byedone.
He can't remember if he put on underwear, this morning, either, and has no idea what he had for lunch.
Is that lying?
