Biden Contradicts Dem Impeachment Witness In Latests Gaffe Over Ukraine
Former Vice President Joe Biden in an interview with a local New Hampshire news affiliate contradicted a Democrat impeachment witness in his biggest gaffe yet.
Biden told Manchester, New Hampshire’s WMUR-9:
My case has already been made. There’s not a single solitary person in this administration who said I did anything other than my job. Not anybody in the United States of America that has been involved at all. Not anybody abroad … I did my job, and I did it really well. The problem is here, this is all about Trump’s ability to take the focus off.
The problem is Biden’s statement contradicts the testimony provided by several witnesses the Democrats called themselves during the impeachment inquiry.
Breitbart News reports:
George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau at the State Department, told the House Intelligence Committee that Biden had an apparent conflict of interest because his son, Hunter Biden, had been appointed to a well-compensated position on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, that was widely perceived to be corrupt.
Kent said that he brought the issue up in 2015: “I raised my concerns [with the vice president’s staff] that I had heard that Hunter Biden was on the board of a company owned by somebody that the U.S. Government had spent money trying to get tens of millions of dollars back and that could create the perception of a conflict of interest.”
He added that the vice president’s office had said that Biden was too busy dealing with the tragic death of his other son, Beau. But nothing was done afterward, either.
The now-famous former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch told the committee that she had told by the Obama administration before her confirmation hearing not to answer questions about Biden’s conflict of interest, but to direct any questions to the vice president’s office.
Biden’s latest gaffe contradicts literally hours upon hours of testimony and Joe Biden doesn’t look good no matter how he tries to spin it.
