UNITED STATES—The investigation into President Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelenski has revealed some information about former Vice President Joe Biden.
According to reports, video footage of an old interview shows Biden bragging about his own multiple trips to Ukraine indicating on one occasion that there was a discussion on loan guarantees with $1 billion at stake. He boasted that he told the powers that be, that either they fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin, or the $1 billion was off the table. Biden noted they doubted him and he suggested they call President Barack Obama.
The fired prosecutor was the lead prosecutor in an investigation into a corruption case of a company that employed Biden’s son, Hunter. According to reports, Hunter Biden served on a board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukranian Natural Gas Company.
When publicly asked by a reporter how many times he talked to his son about his overseas business dealings, Biden replied:
“I’ve never talked to my son about his overseas business dealings.”
This is Joe Biden openly bragging last year about how in March 2016 (while VP) he threatened Ukraine officials with withholding $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees unless Ukraine fired its top prosecutor–a prosecutor who was investigating corruption at a Ukrainian natural gas company. Biden's son Hunter sat on that company's board. In other words, Biden's confessing here not to just bribery, but also to obstructing justice IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY. If our media wasn't so corrupt, Biden would already be out of this race. And Trump is absolutely right & justified to be calling for an investigation, here AND in Ukraine.

President Trump is facing scrutiny over a July 2019 phone call between himself and a Ukranian leader. He reportedly admitted that he did urge the Ukraine leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden. Biden has accused President Trump of what he said:
“Appears to be an overwhelming abuse of power.” Biden asked, “Why is he on the phone with a foreign leader? Trying to intimidate a foreign leader.”
Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst, Judge Andrew Napolitano made a comment about President Trump being willing to commit a felony to get re-elected.
David Asman replied, “Who is in more trouble here? The President who had this phone call with a Ukranian leader or Joe Biden who actually did have a quid pro quo with regard to Ukraine when he was Vice President.”
Jordan Fabian from, “The Hill” tweeted on Tuesday, September 24 that President Trump told reporters, “I think it’s ridiculous. It’s a witch hunt. The call was perfect. It couldn’t have been nicer. There was no pressure put on them whatsoever. But there was pressure put on with respect to Joe Biden.”
