Pence Backs President Trump: Biden Family Ukrainian Ties Are ‘Worth Looking Into’ (VIDEO)
Vice President Mike Pence backed President Trump on Thursday and said the Biden crime family’s ties to Ukraine are ‘worth looking into.’
Joe Biden’s son Hunter was making $50,000 a month sitting on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company despite the fact that he had no knowledge in the field.
While Hunter was making $50,000 a month from Burisma Holdings, then-Vice President Joe Biden was tasked with leading the Obama Admin’s efforts in Ukraine.
Joe Biden then threatened to withhold over $1 billion in aid from Ukraine if Ukraine didn’t fire Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings with Burisma Holdings.
Shokin was fired and Biden bragged about it during a 2018 speech to the Council on Foreign Relations and now the Democrat-media complex is pinning the scandal on Trump.
“[O]ne of the main reasons we were elected to Washington, D.C., was to drain the swamp and I think the American people have a right to know if the vice president of the United States or his family profited from his position as vice president during the last administration. That’s about looking backwards and understanding what really happened,” Pence said.
“I mean, the fact that my predecessor had a son who was paid $50,000 a month to be on a Ukrainian board at the time that Vice President Biden was leading the Obama administration’s efforts in Ukraine, I think is worth looking into. And the president made it very clear that he believes our other nations around the world should look into it as well.”
Pence also defended Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and said there was no quid pro quo.
