Joe Biden: ‘No evidence’ he threatened Ukraine prosecutor to help his son

May 14, 2019

  Joe Biden has a bit of a Ukraine conflict of interest with his son Hunter Biden, if you have not heard this story you can read some of the backstory here. Basically while he was Vice President Joe Biden threatened to withhold money from Ukraine  but after a Ukrainian prosecutor dropped the charges against the company Hunter Biden worked for the threat went away.

  If you scroll down to almost the end of this article  you will see how Joe Biden recently replied to a question on this issue. Here is what he had to say:

“We never once discussed it when he was there,” the former vice president said of his son. “There’s not a single bit of evidence that’s been shown in any reporting that’s been done that he ever talked about it with me or asked any government official for a favor. … I have great confidence in my son. He’s a man of great integrity.”

  That’s a very interesting and nuanced answer isn’t it? First of all, Joe Biden would not need to talk to his son about interceding on his behalf in order for him to do so. And secondly it is even more interesting that he said there was no “evidence” that any favor was asked for, he did not state outright that there was no favor asked for. If he were 100% innocent why would he not come right out and deny any wrongdoing instead of pointing out there was no evidence of wrongdoing?
