Biden Claims He ‘Never’ Spoke to His Son About Ukraine Dealings, Forgot Son Said the Opposite

2020 Democratic presidential primary frontrunner Joe Biden (D) may have landed in hot water after denying that he and his son spoke about the younger Biden’s Ukraine dealings.

While speaking to reporters on Saturday, Biden — the former vice president from former President Barack Obama‘s administration — claimed to Fox News’ Peter Doocy that his son Hunter Biden and he “never” discussed the latter’s Ukraine “business dealings” after the younger Biden had said the opposite in a July New Yorker piece.

Doocy: “How many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?”

Biden: “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

Watch the video here:

The younger Biden said in the interview that he and his father had spoken about his business activities in Ukraine a single time.

“Dad said, ‘I hope you know what you are doing,’ and I said, ‘I do,'” Hunter said to the New Yorker.

Chairwoman of the Republican National Committee Ronna McDaniel weighed in on the controversy in a Sunday tweet, calling Biden’s comments “clearly a lie.”

“Yesterday, Joe Biden said he never spoke with his son about his foreign business dealings. That’s clearly a lie,” wrote McDaniel. “The New Yorker reports that Hunter and his father did talk about his Ukranian business.”

The scrutiny towards the former vice president’s possible conversation with his son came after reports of President Donald Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into both Bidens during a phone call on July 25th.

As IJR previously reported, the president told reporters on Sunday that the conversation was “largely congratulatory” and that he had spoken briefly about Biden with Zelensky during their call.

“The conversation I had was largely congratulatory, with largely corruption, all of the corruption taking place and largely the fact that we don’t want our people like Vice President Biden and his son creating to the corruption already in the Ukraine,” said Trump.

Since a certain Confused Person (shallow-thinker, Socialist puppet, parroter of his bettes) chose to post twice. “How stupid can you get? More obviously. She is here, um, because this is where the U.N. is. Get it? She has traveled throughout Europe already, and she is now heading to Chile, in November.” Why hasn’t she lectured in China about how wrong they are? Same goes for India. Both have more than doubled CO2 emissions since the Obozo error, err, era. She should also visit the sources, the Middle East and Russia. Her handlers should send her to those places next. Let’s… Read more »

President Trump WOULD HAVE BEEN REMISS had he NOT mentioned the Ukrainian corruption and Biden’s role in it!!! Trump knew of, and thereby reminded, the new prime minister of his intentions of preventing it from continuing. The US supplies Ukraine with foreign aid tax $$$’s on the condition that BIDEN’S son be employed as a consultant?….WTF?…Who, by the way, has NO experience in oil, gas, Ukraine, or much of anything other than a father who has a PHD in government corruption/extortion!

Biden’s already guilty!!!! He admitted it!! Put him up for trial!!!!

Biden lies again! He continually denies his mistakes and corruption, sort of like saying there were no scandals during the Obama administration. Next, he’ll say he forgot. Wait for it.

“Since the article mentions her, I’d like to know why Thunberg only visited the US” I Ching

She is here, um, because this is where the U.N. is. Get it?

She has traveled throughout Europe already, and she is now heading to Chile, in November.

Michael,
“Ahh, so refreshing to see comments from the 2 most active obfuscators on this site.”

Are you including yourself in that count? You have not addressed any points of the article. You’ve made NO point or counter-arguments. You have only engaged in casual slanders.

If you have a point to make then do so and be prepared to defend it. This is called discussion.

Are you taking lessons from the Confused One?
