Biden Tries Banning Giuliani From TV After Rudy Exposes His Ukraine Scandal
- 2.2K Views
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's campaign sent a letter on Sunday to several major news networks telling them not invite President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, anymore.
Biden's team sent the letter hours after Giuliani spent the morning on a series of talk shows aggressively highlighting what he called Biden's corrupt dealings in Ukraine and China.
The Biden campaign wrote to NBC News, CBS News, Fox News and CNN to voice "grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump."
The memo continued: "While you often fact check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation."
If a network books Giuliani, the Biden campaign is demanding "an equivalent amount of time" to be provided "to a surrogate for the Biden campaign."
Sure seems like Team Biden is freaking out over the multiple scandals involving the former vice president and his son, Hunter Biden.
The Biden-China scandal involves:
In 2013, Hunter Biden was managing partner in the private equity firm Rosemont Seneca Partners. The Chinese funds were managed by Rosemont Seneca Bohai, which did not involve Chris Heinz.
In December of that year, Vice President Biden and his son Hunter flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Ten days after the trip, a subsidiary of the Bank of China named Bohai Capital signed an exclusive deal with Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz’s Rosemont to form a $1 billion joint-investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST. The deal was later increased to $1.5 billion.
Biden's Ukraine scandal is equally as troubling.
Hunter allegedly profited financially from his father’s time as vice president.
The details emerged as the Ukrainian government recently reopened an investigation into a company which once paid Hunter roughly $50,000 a month.
That company, Burisma Holdings, is being probed by Ukraine’s top prosecutor.
Joe Biden allegedly pressured and tried to intimidate the Ukrainian government to remove the prosecutor from the case, and his plan actually worked.
Biden, who was still serving as the vice president, went to Kiev in March 2016? and “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the country’s top prosecutor [Yuriy Lutsenko], who had been accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office and among the political elite.”
URGENT POLL: Do you support Trump against Dem impeachment efforts?
Biden’s plan worked, and the Ukrainian Parliament removed Lutsenko as the prosecutor on the case. And Hunter still benefited significantly from his father’s actions.
If Biden used his power as VP to pressure Ukraine into removing the prosecutor who was investigating a shady deal involving his son, that would be catastrophic and maybe even illegal.
