Senate Report Undermines Biden’s Go-To ‘No Evidence’ Claim on Burisma Corruption

'I’m not gonna---I’m not gonna respond to that. Let’s focus on the problem! Focus on this man...'

Update: An earlier version of this story suggested, incorrectly, that the above clip was from Wednesday. The clip was from an October 2019 press conference, which is why Biden is shown before a live audience without a mask.

Biden spent Wednesday in Charlotte, NC, at the Black Economic Summit, where he pledged to commit millions of dollars to “systemic racism.”

He is not believed to have taken any questions from media regarding the Senate report that was released Wednesday implicating his family in widespread corruption involving foreign nationals and asserting—based on subpoenaed documents, testimony and other evidence—that the Obama administration was complicit in Ukrainian corruption.

Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden has long hidden behind a complicit media and corrupt Ukrainian prosecutors in claiming there was “no evidence” linking him and his family to scandalous misconduct over their unethical business dealings.

But a long-awaited report released this week by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee painted a damning picture of conflicts of interest that surrounded his son Hunter‘s role on the board of Burisma, potentially undermining US–Ukraine policy and promoting Russian disinformation.

During the buildup to highly partisan impeachment hearings last year, Biden did little to help his case last year by becoming irrationally angry over a question and falling back on the now-obsolete standby line that there was no proof.

“It’s not a conflict of interest!” the agitated former vice president told reporters. “There’s been no indication of any conflict of interest, from Ukraine or anywhere else. Period!”

He then refused to speak any further on the matter.

“I’m not gonna—I’m not gonna respond to that,” Biden chided reporters.

“Let’s focus on the problem! Focus on this man!” he continued. “What he’s doing, that no president has ever done! No president!”

Among the shocking revelations from the report—which committee chair Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., spearheaded alongside Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa—was evidence that the Obama administration was fully aware of the concerns about Hunter’s role on the corrupt energy company’s board.

The Obama administration dismissed complaints from State Department emissaries such as George Kent, who said Hunter’s name came up repeatedly during an investigation into Burisma and its subsequent bribing of the lead prosecutor to drop the investigation.

Joe Biden later stepped in to force the firing of a new prosecutor–general who had resumed the Burisma corruption probe.

The Senate report also outlined the considerable payoffs that Hunter and other members of the Biden family, as well as business associates received from foreign entities including China.

And it noted that Hunter was frequently found in the company of foreign women presumed to be prostitutes.

Some of the issues uncovered could potentially be criminal in nature, the report indicated.

But Democrats have not only circled the wagon to conceal the evidence from coming out—they even attempted to turn President Donald Trump’s efforts to expose it against him, waging an impeachment campaign that distracted the nation and allowed the deadly coronavirus pandemic to take hold.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-NY, doubled down on the Left’s denials Wednesday, claiming that the GOP-backed report “reads as if Putin wrote it.”

“While the rest of the country was busy fighting COVID, Senate Republicans have been abusing the power of the Senate to conduct opposition research for President Trump’s campaign,” he claimed.

“… Despite their zeal to smear Vice President Biden and his family, Senate Republicans found no evidence, no evidence to support the conspiracy theories pushed by Putin’s intelligence agents,” Schumer continued.

“Senators Grassley and Johnson should reimburse taxpayers for the money they wasted, and this entire disgraceful affair and the Johnson report should be relegated to the dustbin of history.”
