2020 Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden recently made a new lie about his sons work in Ukraine when he claimed that he was never warned about his sons potentially corrupt work.
The comments by Biden were made during an interview with NPR. NPR host Rachel Martin said to the former Vice President: “You know it didn’t look good for Hunter Biden to be on that board, even if he did nothing wrong. The optics weren’t good. And you talk a lot about what it means to be a Biden and the integrity that is imbued in that family name. But there were former White House aides of yours who tried to warn you about the potential conflicts of interest.”
Biden replied with a blatant lie, saying, “Nobody warned me about a potential conflict of interest. Nobody warned me about that. And at the same time —”
“George Kent, the State Department official, testified that he raised it to you, and your staff,” Martin fired back.
“No, he didn’t say me,” Biden said, lying once again. “He did not say me.”
“To your staff,” Martin pressed. “To your staff, I stand corrected. To your staff. And your staff told him he has no bandwidth for family matters.”
“I never, never heard that once at all. Well, my son was dying, so I guess that’s why he said it, because my son was on his deathbed. But that, that’s not the reason why – they should have told me," Biden said, trying to divert attention to make people feel bad for him.
“And the fact of the matter is, my son testified and did an interview saying if he, looking back on it, made a mistake, he made a mistake although he did nothing wrong,” Biden added. “The appearance looked bad and it gave folks like Rudy Giuliani an excuse to come up with a Trumpian kind of defense, why they were violating the Constitution. His, his words speak for themselves.”
Kenneth Vogel, a reporter at the New York Times made sure to call out Biden for his comment by citing an article from The New Yorker:
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 fact of the matter is Hunter Biden got his role at Burisma because Joe Biden was Vice President and Burisma saw this as an opportunity to protect their corrupt tendencies. Instead of doing something about the situation, Biden let it happen.
