“You want to know why the secretary of state wasn’t particularly upset about it? Because his son was getting money too. Isn’t it a coincidence that China sends $1.5 billion to a private equity fund? There were only three owners: Biden’s son, Kerry’s son, and Whitey Bulger’s nephew.”
WAEX: NEW YORK — Rudy Giuliani says Barack Obama had to be “asleep at the switch” to keep his vice president, Joe Biden, in charge of Ukraine policy while Biden’s son Hunter worked for “the crookedest guy in Ukraine.”
Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer and former mayor of New York City, spoke to the Washington Examiner across the street from the United Nations, where he gave a speech at a rally of thousands of Iranian Americans in support of uprisings in Iran for regime change.
Trump’s July 25 call to congratulate new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on his party’s landslide victory in the country’s parliamentary elections has been the talk of the news cycle since the existence of a whistleblower complaint about it came to light last week. Trump encouraged Zelensky to look at Hunter Biden’s $50,000-a-month consulting gig with Ukraine’s largest private gas company, Burisma, which he snagged while his father, the 2020 Democratic front-runner to challenge Trump, was vice president and point man on Ukraine policy.
Biden proudly claimed to have gotten the country to fire a prosecutor accused of corruption by threatening to withhold $1 billion in aid on a trip to Kyiv in March 2016. The prosecutor had allegedly been investigating Burisma before his ouster.
