The Democrats are desperate to hide one fact from the American people in this impeachment witch hunt.
And that is the reality that the one official that abused their power in pressuring Ukraine by threatening to withhold American aid was former Vice President Joe Biden.
But that collapsed because Joe Biden was caught red-handed in this Ukrainian quid pro quo.
One of the main points of contention in the impeachment case is President Trump asking Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden’s corruption back in March 2016 by pressuring the Ukrainian government to fire a prosecutor or lose out on one billion dollars in aid.
The prosecutor had investigated Burisma – a shady energy company paying Biden’s son Hunter $83,000 per month.
The fake news media claimed there was no active investigation into Burisma and there was no evidence of wrongdoing.
Those are both lies.
Investigative reporter John Solomon revealed that the Latvian government passed information to the Ukrainian government one month before Biden demanded they fire their prosecutor that the Bidens’ allegedly benefited from a money laundering scheme tied to Burisma.
John Solomon exclusively reports:
The Feb. 18, 2016 alert to Ukraine came from the Latvian prosecutorial agency responsible for investigating money laundering, and it specifically questioned whether Vice President Joe Biden’s younger son and three other officials at Burisma Holdings were the potential beneficiaries of suspect funds.
“The Office for Prevention of Laundering of Proceeds Derived from Criminal Activity … is currently investigating suspicious activity of Burisma Holdings Limited,” the Latvian agency also known as the FIU wrote Ukraine’s financial authorities.
The memo was released to me by the Ukrainian General Prosecutor’s Office and confirmed by the Latvian embassy to the United States.
Latvian authorities said they did not get any incriminating information back from Ukraine to warrant further investigation and did not take additional action in 2016.
This goes to the heart of the President’s defense of his conduct.
Democrats and the fake news media falsely claim the President “pressured” Ukraine to dig up dirt on his chief rival in the 2020 Presidential campaign.
In reality, the President was fulfilling his obligation to make sure American foreign aid was going to a country committed to rooting out corruption.
And the President has a clear interest in making sure former Vice President Biden did not leverage his position to blackmail Ukraine into covering up a criminal scheme that financially benefited his family.
Democrats and their allies in the fake news media love to repeat the talking point that no one has produced any evidence of wrongdoing on the part of the Bidens.
And while that may be true, it could just be the case that Joe Biden’s position as Vice President caused the Ukrainian government to look the other way and not pursue legitimate corruption probes of shady dealings involving Hunter Biden.
