Joe Biden has stated he has never spoken to his son about Ukraine business deals. However, that is a false statement. Hunter Biden is quoted in the New Yorker recalling a time they spoke about Burisma.
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.’ ”
Senate Report Catches Biden in a Lie
Ron Johnson (R-WI) commented on several findings of the U.S. Senate report highlighting wrongdoings of Hunter Biden. Ron Johnson said the findings show the former vice president has been caught in “a lie” by denying having spoken with his son about his dealings in Ukraine.
“As far as we can tell, there is only one person in the Obama administration that actually talked to the vice president about it,” Johnson advised. “Amos Hochstein, who was a special envoy over to Ukraine actually did talk to the vice president about how troubling this was, this conflict of interest, which, by the way, led the vice president then to talk to Hunter Biden to set up meeting with Amos Hochstein to talk about this. Now, remember, Vice President Biden famously in the end of 2009 said he’d never spoken to his son about overseas business dealings. This sure sounds like a conversation he probably had with Hunter Biden about his position on Burisma’s board. So, I am sorry to say I think we’ve caught the vice president in a lie, which by the way, I never believed that was true.”– Ron Johnson (R-WI)
Biden’s Explanation “Doesn’t Pass The Smell Test”
Joe Biden is asked by Mike Allen about Hunter Biden’s lucrative job for Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company: “I don’t know what he was doing. I know he was on the board. I found out he was on the board after he was on the board.
Mike Allen Responds: “That Doesn’t Pass The Smell Test.” In response, Biden snapped back at Mr. Allen.
