Joe “cops don’t pull over white girls” Biden is no stranger to the pages of LET. We have reported on his attacks on cops, his assault on the 2nd Amendment, and now his Ukraine corruption involvement. We are not alone in our thoughts about the former Vice President.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is now serving as legal counsel for President Donald Trump, highlighted comments Biden made at a Council on Foreign Relations event, boasting how he did the very things that he and many others are accusing the President of doing in regard to the Ukraine. Biden admitted to strong-arming the Ukrainian government to fire a prosecutor while he was vice president.
“Here is what Joe Biden says he did. He offered him a $1 billion loan guarantee, he threatened him with a $1 billion loan guarantee, and in return for that, so that’s part one of bribery,” Giuliani said. “Part two is, he got the president of the Ukraine to fire the prosecutor.”
Giuliani also pointed out that Biden’s statement of having no awareness of his son’s business dealings was false. He also argued for the elder Biden to be prosecuted for the crime of bribery.
“If he wants you to believe he didn’t know about his son’s business in the Ukraine — that can be disproven 10 ways,” Giuliani said. “That’s called a false exculpatory statement. If Joe Biden is not prosecuted for these crimes, then nobody in America should ever be prosecuted for bribery.”
He’s ripping mad over the hypocrisy.
“It’s an outrage — an outrage the kind of protection he gets,” he added. “And the part I really find disturbing is because the media puts on these vicious attacks on you if you go after one of their protected people, people in law enforcement are afraid to go after him.”
The mainstream media has been having a field day over the yet-to-be substantiated accusations that President Trump was wrong to ask Ukrainian leaders to investigate political corruption related to Joe Biden.
While the whistleblower complaint is based on hearsay, we do know that Joe Biden, while serving as vice president, pressured the Ukrainian government to fire the prosecutor who was investigating his son’s company.
Hunter Biden joined the board of Ukrainian national gas company Burisma in 2014 while his father was managing the United States’ Ukraine policy and despite zero personal experience in the field.
At the time Hunter Biden joined its board, Burisma was embroiled in allegations of corruption, allegations serious enough that Ukraine’s prosecutor general launched an investigation into the company.
Joe Biden was so proud of his role in the prosecutor’s removal from investigating the company paying his son $50,000 per month merely to serve on its board that he actually bragged about it in a 2018 speech at an event for the publication Foreign Affairs.
In this speech, Biden boasts his threat to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loans from Ukraine if they did not agree to fire the prosecutor who happened to be investigating the company giving his son a cushy position requiring little or no work but giving the holder status or financial benefit.
The prosecutor was fired, and the investigation was dropped six months later. While the investigation was just reopened last year, it has been a slow-moving process that has turned up little.
At the time Biden pushed for the firing of Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor general, Shokin had plans to question Hunter Biden.
For the record, here are Biden’s comments on the topic, word for word.
“I remember going over and convincing our team, others, to convince them that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev.
And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.
So, they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars.
They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said, I said, call him. (Laughter.) I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours.
I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
Where there is no evidence of the President coercing the Ukrainian leaders to do anything wrong, Biden went on record admitting his blatant illegal activity. Hence the following.
In October LET brought you information regarding Joe and Hunter Biden, and whether Americans really wanted to see an investigation launched into the former Vice President’s ties to Ukraine and China.
Now it appears that Senator Lindsey Graham is no longer waiting for the needle on the public opinion poll results to move one way or the other.
As reported by Breitbart News:
“Sen. Lindsey Graham on Thursday requested State Department documents related to former Vice President Joe Biden’s communications with former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.”
According to reports the Republican law maker from South Carolina sent a letter to the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting the following:
“The documents to assist in answering questions regarding allegations that Joe Biden was involved in the termination of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin in order to end an investigation into natural gas company Burisma Holdings, where his son Hunter Biden served on the board.”
Specifically, Graham is looking for any and all documentation including records from Joe Biden’s phone calls with President Petro Poroshenko on Feb. 11, 18 and 19, and March 22, 2016.
Graham has cited that there are media reports the two discussed demands from Biden regarding the dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin prior to the date of Shokin’s March 26th 2016 removal from office.
According to Breitbart news:
“Graham also requested [in his letter to Pompeo] documents and communications between Joe Biden and his office and Poreshenko and his office between Feb. 2, 2016, when Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky’s home was raided and Shokin’s dismissal.”
It is also reported that Graham has requested:
“All documents and communications related to a meeting between Devon Archer, a business partner of Hunter Biden, and then-Secretary of State John Kerry on March 2, 2016.”
Graham’s letter to Secretary of State Pompeo comes after two weeks of public testimony by many individuals regarding the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The impeachment hearings are focusing on a probe into whether President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine.

Top democrats argue that they believe the President allegedly did this in an attempt to force pressure on the new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky demanding he investigate the Bidens as well as Burisma.
Here’s what LET brought you earlier on this story:
A new poll dropped over whether there should be a Justice Department probe into Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden regarding their actions in Ukraine and China.
A total of 57 percent of respondents said they support it.
In the new poll by Investor’s Business Daily/TIPP, only 37 percent of respondents were against investigating them.
Hunter Biden’s shameful history is also resurfacing. In case you hadn’t been aware, Hunter Biden was tapped as a “direct commission officer” in the U.S. Navy Reserve. What’s that? It’s a special officer-school pass you get when you know someone high ranking.
Interestingly, when he was selected, they gave him both an age-related waiver and a waiver over a past drug-related incident. Soon after, Joe Biden administered the commissioning oath to his son in a White House ceremony.
Not even a month later, Biden was discharged after testing positive for cocaine during a urinalysis test. He claims he hadn’t taken cocaine on purpose, but rather that someone slipped it into his cigarettes. He didn’t appeal the matter, figuring that if he didn’t, it wouldn’t make the press.
He was wrong. A Navy official leaked the story to the Wall Street Journal.
Now he’s back in hot water.
The poll explored recent headlines on Ukraine, all over President Donald Trump’s calls for the Bidens to be investigated and the Democrats’ push to impeach him over those calls. It demonstrated they are having a negative impact on the former vice president.
A closer look at the poll shows that because of the Ukraine issue, eight percent said they were more likely to vote for Biden. But a total of 23 percent said they were more likely to vote against him.
