On Thursday Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that PBS Host/Reporter Judy Woodruff and other media talking heads have adamantly defended presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden. Pompeo said “It’s like you’re working for the DNC [Democratic National Committee].”
In a PBS Newshour Pompeo and Woodruff discussed allegations that Biden had a Ukrainian prosecutor fired because Biden didn’t want his son Hunter Biden investigated for corruption.
In a strong pro-Biden statement, Woodruff said, “There’s been no proof of any misdoing by Vice President Biden…”
Pompeo asserted himself and replied, “Y’all keep repeating that line like you’re working for the DNC.”
The prosecutor (in question) filed an affidavit, which specified Biden forced him to stay out of investigation and forced him out of his job because he was looking into Hunter Biden sitting on the board of directors of Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma, Holdings. While sitting on the board Hunter collected a large salary despite not having any work experience in the energy or gas sector.
In the interview, Pompeo asserted it was “wholly appropriate” for President Donald Trump to discuss investigating corruption in the U.S. with Ukraine’s top leader.
In a public statement, Biden threatened to withhold more than a billion dollars in aid to Ukraine under the condition that Viktor Shokin did not resign from his job or get fired. However, Biden then backtracked and claimed he wanted Shokin to quit because of corruption allegations. Shortly after Shokin resigned from his position after Biden’s public threat.
The call Trump had with Ukraine’s top leader has sparked a U.S. House of Representatives’ impeachment probe that has remained the top news of the week.
