“They’re trying to turn what was a Biden scandal into a Trump scandal,” Peter Schweizer said of the Washington Post‘s and other news media outlets’ framing of a “whistleblower” making headlines this week, offering his remarks on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight.
President Donald Trump reportedly urged Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to look into former vice president Joe Biden’s son — Hunter Biden — and his business dealings in the eastern European country, according to a Friday-published Wall Street Journal report. The allegation follows reports that a whistleblower filed a complaint in relation to the president’s communications with Ukraine.
Schweizer said, “Hunter Biden, in a sense, went around the world and cashed in on his father’s access. One of those places was in Ukraine, [with] an energy company named Burisma, which is headed by a very corrupt oligarch named Zlachevsky, [that] hired him as an advisor and a board member in April of 2014.”
Schweizer continued, “What’s interesting about this is that Hunter Biden has no background in Ukraine. He has no background in energy or natural gas or anything like that, but of course his father, the vice president at the time, was the point person on U.S. policy towards Ukraine, and the money we’re talking about here is eye-popping. Hunter Biden was getting $83,000 a month from this Ukrainian energy company where he had no background.”
