President Donald Trump, during an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” discussed former President Barack Obama’s silence amid the growing turmoil related to former Vice President Joe Biden and his son’s alleged wrongdoing in Ukraine that occurred during Obama’s presidency.
“I think he’s hiding,” President Trump told Pirro. “I think he knows all about it. And we are talking about investigate the investigators. We’re talking about the beginning. And it was really before I took office.”
The president said he thought Obama knew about two former FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok’s attempt to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. The two then-FBI agents worked on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Their relationship and the texts they exchanged mocking President Trump and his supporters were revealed to public this week as reported in the Daily Mail.
“If you look at the insurance policy with Strzok and Page, just in case she should lose, we’ve got an insurance policy. That’s what all this stuff has been about, the insurance policy,” he continued. “These are bad people. And this was the insurance policy. The two lovers, Strzok and Page. Two beauties.”
Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden have recently faced scrutiny with regard to their alleged corruption schemes in Ukraine and China, where Hunter Biden was paid a billion in business dealings with China and more than $50,000 per month to sit on a Ukrainian gas company’s board—Burisma Holdings.
The rampant turmoil stemmed from a whistleblower’s complaint that alleged President Trump forced Ukraine’s leader to investigate the Bidens on the July 25 phone call. The complaint set off a Democratic-led impeachment inquiry into whether President Trump abused the power of his office in order to damage his political rival.
Both President Trump and President Volodymyr Zelenskiy confirmed that there was “no pressure” and “no blackmail” during to the conversation and so did the transcript of the call released by the White House. Last Friday, the Ukrainian prosecutor general announced that Ukraine will review previous investigations into the owner of Burisma Holdings.
News report revealed this week that the CIA whistleblower worked with Joe Biden when he was vice president. Still, Barack Obama has remained silent.
Eric Trump, also raised questions about Obama’s silence in an interview with Sean Hannity, saying, “Obama is the only guy who’s hiding. I mean, Joe Biden was his vice president. Where is Obama? What does he think about this rampant corruption?”
“If I took a billion and a half dollars from China, or if I took $50,000 a month from a Ukrainian oil company, people’s heads would explode, the media’s heads would explode, the Democrats’ heads would explode,” he added.
