Saagar Enjeti: Media is 'covering' for Biden on Ukraine

Former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenBiden: Buttigieg 'doesn't have significant black support even in his own city' Biden: 'I'd add' Warren to my list of potential VP picks How can top Democrats run the economy with no business skill? MORE came out swinging yesterday, or I guess his version of it, in his strongest worded statement to date calling for the impeachment of President Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpLawmakers prep ahead of impeachment hearing Democrats gear up for high-stakes Judiciary hearing Warren says she made almost M from legal work over past three decades MORE.

The impetus for this call is of course Trump's own highlighting of Biden's son Hunter and his past role on the board of a Ukrainian energy company and his involvement with a private equity firm that received a large payment from the Chinese government.

According to Biden's statement, Biden's borrowed from a common woke Democratic refrain by likening Trump and his critics highlighting of Hunter's past business dealings to Nazi propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. This is a disgusting smear. Are there people who are using Hunter's past business dealings in bad faith to damage him? Sure! But branding anybody who dares question the holy Vice President's motives and that of his family as a Nazi is the lowest of low blows.

Worse the media is covering for him. They are united in their total and complete belief that there is absolutely nothing to see here at all to see when it comes to Hunter's past business dealings and its intersection with Biden's own Vice Presidency. Just look at the words that The New York Times uses in its own story about Biden's speech.

"There is no evidence that Hunter Biden made millions of dollars from his overseas work or that his father intervened inappropriately with Ukraine or China, the other country Mr. Trump was alluding to in his tweet." That is an incredible statement, given that The New York Times own reporting confirms that Hunter was paid $50,000 a month by the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Furthermore, you all may remember my monologue from last week detailing the connections between Hunter and Joe Biden.

Well guess where I got all that information? The New York Times people!

To recap that case Hunter accompanied his father on a 2013 trip to Beijing catching a ride on Air Force 2. Days later a private equity firm called BHR Equity Investments raised $1 billion, later raised to $1.5 billion, in funding from the Chinese government. The company's largest shareholder is literally the bank of China. Hunter at the time sat on the board of BHR Holdings.

While in China, Joe Biden shook hands with the future CEO of BHR Holdings and he also met with Hunter Biden on a so called "social call." Hunter by his own admission continues to own 10% of the company, even though he assures us all he's yet to make any money for it?

What the hell is The New York Times talking about? There is evidence in their own paper I just laid out that Hunter Biden made untold sums profiting off his father's Vice Presidency. Is there any evidence that his father intervened solely for the purpose of saving his son's company from his investigation? No there isn't, but that’s why it’s called a conflict of interest and why ethical people avoid them. To spare even the question.

Even worse, Biden's Democratic opponents are covering for him. Kamala HarrisKamala Devi HarrisSunday shows — Nadler: A jury would convict Trump in 'three minutes flat' Booker on Harris dropping out: 'Iowa voters should have the right to choose' Booker campaign rakes in million after Harris exits 2020 race MORE has told us all that we must leave Joe alone.

Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth Ann WarrenBiden: 'I'd add' Warren to my list of potential VP picks Warren says she made almost M from legal work over past three decades How can top Democrats run the economy with no business skill? MORE in a recent interview said that "What happened in Ukraine is about Donald Trump." Again this is the candidate who just bought $10 million in ads touting a pledge to crack down on corruption in American politics.

Why is it so hard for people to admit quite clearly that what Hunter Biden did was shady as hell. Why is the paper of so called record putting unfounded claims to borrow, from their language, of defense for Biden which are easily proven false by their own reporting. The answer is that Donald Trump will be the undoing of both the media and the Democrats if they continue down this path.

And by the way? Thats what nazism actually looked like. Having a message pushed by powerful people with a lot to lose and the media gobbling it up in order to preserve their status with the powerful.

The media and the Democrats, they hate Trump so much that if he says something with a grain of truth, it becomes their job in life to gaslight the American public to believe he is lying. The thing is, though, is that Trump says things which aren't true all the time. They could stick to just those and have enough for a lifetime, but they just can't resist and it leads to gaslighting like this.
