Fireworks on Fox! Steve Hilton Accuses Marie Harf of Covering Up Ukraine Corruption by Biden and Kerry (Video)
As Fox News Channel host of The Next Revolution Steve Hilton laid out a case of corruption by the Obama administration in Ukraine during a segment on the FNC program Outnumbered on Monday, former Obama-Kerry State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, now a Fox contributor, got indignant and blew up at Hilton when he accused her of covering up the corruption. Fox cut away to a press conference by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) on his impeachment investigation of President Trump as the fireworks erupted on set.
Hilton spoke about the hiring by the Ukraine gas company Burisma of then Vice President Biden’s son Hunter Biden and a former chief of staff for then Secretary of State John Kerry, David Leiter. Hilton said US taxpayer money was funneled to Ukraine and Burisma by V.P. Biden and Kerry, then to the likes of Biden and Leiter and back to Democrat politicians who then call for more money to be sent to Ukraine.

When Vice President Joe Biden’s son, R. Hunter Biden, joined the board of a private Ukrainian oil and natural gas company this spring, he explained his new job as a legal one, disconnected from any effort to influence the Obama Administration. In a press release, the younger Biden boasted of his abilities on issues like improving corporate transparency.
But the company, Burisma Holdings, did not disclose at the time the scope of their plans for influencing the U.S. government. Recently released documents show that Biden’s hiring coincided with the launch of a new effort to lobby members of Congress about the role of the company in Ukraine and the country’s quest for energy independence.
David Leiter, a former Senate chief of staff to Secretary of State John Kerry, signed on to work as a lobbyist for Burisma on May 20, 2014, about a week after Biden announced he was joining the company, according to lobbying disclosures filed this month…
