On Friday, President Donald Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow said to reporters that him and his team “will address” Joe and Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings after House Democrats left the door wide open during their opening arguments.
“Why they opened up the door as wide as a double door on the Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Burisma issue, I guess they figured that was their way of getting ahead of it. We will address it,” Sekulow announced as he floated the idea of calling on the Bidens to testify.
“I want you to think about this for a moment. Joe Biden was charged as vice president of the United States with Ukraine policy,” Sekulow later added. “That was his specific charge. His son went to work for, went on the board of, the Ukrainian gas company [Burisma]. First, the vice president said he knew nothing about it, but the State Department knew about it, because they were concerned when people were being put up for confirmation that that issue might arise. So believe me, you’ll hear about that issue too.”
Check out what Breitbart reported:
Hunter served on Burisma’s board of directors from 2014 to April of this year despite warnings from at least one Obama administration official that the company was corrupt.
In 2015, the office of then-Vice President Joe Biden rebuffed concerns of an Obama administration official that Burisma was corrupt.
On Wednesday, Breitbart News noted that the Democrat managers arguing the case for convicting Trump in the Senate after the House charged him with two articles of impeachment, perhaps inadvertently, made a case for the upper chamber to get depositions from the Bidens if new witnesses are allowed.
Democrats left the door open for hearing testimony from the Bidens in arguing that Trump had no legitimate interest in urging his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate the Bidens’ involvement with the allegedly corrupt company Burisma.
A “whistleblower” complaint accused Trump of engaging in a quid pro quo by coercing Ukraine into investigating the Bidens in exchange for security assistance. The complaint triggered Trump’s impeachment.
