Things continue to go from bad to worse for former Vice President Joe Biden.
Biden came in fourth place in the Iowa caucuses earlier this month and fifth place on Tuesday night in New Hampshire.
While his presidential campaign appears to be on the verge of total collapse, Rudy Giuliani just gave Biden more bad news — and President Donald Trump’s Department of Justice is now involved.
On a recent segment of Fox News‘ Watters World, Giuliani said he had “smoking gun” evidence proving Hunter Biden’s involvement in Ukrainian business dealings.
Giuliani said he has three witnesses that are prepared to “name names” in an investigation into Biden’s work with Burisma Holdings, the corrupt Ukrainian energy company.
Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, said he gave the evidence to the DOJ, who acknowledged on Tuesday that it had been reviewing the materials for “nearly three weeks.”
“I want to prove what happened,” Giuliani told host Jesse Watters, “because I believe if we prove what happened, [Trump] will be totally vindicated.”
Giuliani is clearly frustrated with the lack of urgency in the investigation.
“Look, the government has been so lax in investigating, it’s pathetic,” he told Watters, according to Fox. “I mean…when I was a U.S. attorney…the day Joe Biden made that boastful announcement…the investigation would have begun the next day for bribery.”
Joe Biden’s Ukraine scandal is about to get much bigger.
Biden is engulfed in allegations that he abused his power as vice president to help his son, Hunter Biden, broker a major deal with a corrupt company in Ukraine.
The allegations are that Hunter allegedly profited financially from his father’s time as vice president.
The details emerged as the Ukrainian government recently reopened an investigation into a company that once paid Hunter Biden roughly $50,000 a month.
That company, Burisma Holdings, is being probed by Ukraine’s top prosecutor.
Joe Biden allegedly pressured and tried to intimidate the Ukrainian government to remove the prosecutor from the case, and his plan actually worked.
Biden, who was still serving as the vice president, went to Kyiv in March 2016 and “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the country’s top prosecutor [Yuriy Lutsenko], who had been accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office and among the political elite.”
Biden’s plan worked, and the Ukrainian Parliament removed Lutsenko as the prosecutor on the case.
However, it looks like Hunter Biden still benefited significantly from his father’s actions.
If Biden used his power as VP to pressure Ukraine into removing the prosecutor who was investigating a shady deal involving his son, that would be catastrophic and maybe even illegal.
All of this came days after the Senate voted to acquit the president of the bogus charges leveled against him by Democrats.
