Biden caught lying: Says He Never Discussed Hunterís Ukraine Deal. Hunter Says He Did
amp.dailycaller.com/ ^ | September 21st, 2019 | STAFF

Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed he never discussed Hunter Biden’s 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 Ukraine’s president.

The New Yorker article, titled “Will Hunter Biden Jeopardize His Father’s Campaign?” is an in depth look at Hunter Biden’s 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 Hunter’s relationship with Burisma. Amos Hochstein, the Obama Administration’s 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 Biden’s 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 president’s interest” to release the call transcript.

Trump denies any wrongdoing and called the whistleblower “highly partisan.”

They're still living those heady days of "anything goes"---when Hillary was a shoo-in---
and was expected to sweep all the Dems criminal activities under the Oval Office rug.

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

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.

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.

Biden lies. In other news water is wet. He’s a Democrat. Democrats lie about almost everything.

He probably is telling the truth. He does not remember any such occasion.

He can't remember if he put on underwear, this morning, either, and has no idea what he had for lunch.

Is that lying?
