Skip to comments.Fact Check: Biden Claims No One Brought Up Concerns About Burisma During Impeachment Inquiry
Posted on 10/23/2020 1:37:46 AM PDT by conservative98
CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed during the final presidential debate that no witnesses in the House impeachment inquiry testified anything was wrong with his son Hunter Biden working for a Ukrainian natural gas firm while he was vice president and the point person on Ukraine.
VERDICT: FALSE. A State Department career diplomat testified that he was so concerned with Hunter Bidens ties to Burisma that he raised the issue with the then-Vice Presidents office at the time.
Biden declared during the debate (emphasis added):
Nothing was unethical. Heres what the deal, with regard to Ukraine, we had this whole question about whether or not because he was on the board. I later learned of Burisma, a company that somehow, I had done something wrong. Yet, every single, solitary person when he was going through his impeachment testifying under oath who worked for him said I did my job impeccably. I carried out U.S. policy. Not one single solitary thing was out of line. Not a single thing. Number one.
However, according to ABC News:
During a closed-door deposition earlier this week, a senior State Department official told House impeachment investigators that he raised ethical concerns about Hunter Bidens business ties in Ukraine with then-Vice President Joe Bidens office in 2015, two sources familiar with the deposition confirmed Friday to ABC News, but was ultimately rebuffed.
Deputy Secretary of State George Kent told investigators that he grew so concerned about the appearance of a conflict of interest presented by Hunter Bidens role on the board of a Ukrainian oil and gas company that he conveyed his misgivings to an aide to the then-vice president, the sources said

Joe Biden is lying to the American people.
Every single witness during impeachment hearings testified that Hunter Biden serving on the board of Burisma was a conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest.

The “big guy” has stepped in it real good.
Every poker player has his "tell". I've watched enough of Joe Biden to have spotted his. Whenever he says the words, "Look, Here's the Deal" shove all your chips in cause he's lying. It's not a verbal tic with him. Some part of what follows that phrase is deceptive and he's trying to put a pretty bow on it so you'll buy it.
It’s over for Biden - he knows - he may for get a few hours later -— but it’s over... I doubt we will see much of him in the next few days... 11 days until final election...
I voted for TRUMP/PENCE yesterday — there was a steady stream of people coming in to vote - unlike 2016...
These people are conservative Christian folk - family values types — the traffic in and out was non-stop...
People in Virginia sat by in 2016 and the Dem’s took control of the State House — & all kinds of stupidity has been coming out of there -— We, the People, are taking it back !
Speaking of “Fact Checking”....
Check out this incredibly biased piece of lying propaganda that CBS just posted:
CBS News fact checks the final Trump-Biden debate
I voted on Wednesday and had just over an hour wait. When I left, the line had reformed and was about the same length as when I had come in.
I’m about 99% confident that the LEFT/DEMOCRATS know this — and they are scared! It’s going to be a smash like Reagan in 1984....maybe a bit bigger...
Buy Dung’s last lid expired with the debate. Will he call a new lid this morning?
He moves his teeth, he is lying
Ambassador Yovanovich was actually doing a lot of Biden family business work in Ukraine. E.g. she put pressure on the Ukrainien gov, denied visas to several possible witnesses who could hurt Biden, etc. The she showed up on impeachment hearings, claiming she was unjustly dismissed by pres. Trump.
