President Trump has called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to release any information he may have related to Hunter Biden’s dealings with oligarchs in Eastern Europe.
In an interview with Just the News that aired on Tuesday, Trump cited a 2020 Senate report that claimed ten years ago, Russian oligarch Yelena Baturina, the wife of Moscow’s mayor, gave $3.5 million to a company that Hunter Biden co-founded.
Trump told Just the News, “She [Yelena Baturina] gave him $3.5 million so now I would think Putin would know the answer to that. I think he should release it. I think we should know that answer.”
The news continues to worsen for the son of the current occupant of the White House.
A Delaware grand jury has been investigating Hunter Biden’s business dealings searching for possible tax violations, foreign lobbying issues, and money laundering.
During the same interview, Trump also said he would like to know more about Hunter Biden’s dealings with the owner of Burisma Holdings gas company, Nikolai Zlochevsky.
As you may recall, Hunter Biden served as a member of the Burisma board from 2014-to 2019, despite having no discernable experience in the gas industry besides having his famous father’s last name.
The younger Biden made $50,000 a month during his time with Burisma. This large salary has led to widespread speculation about how Biden got a seat on the Burisma board and whether a corruption investigation is warranted.
These questions about Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine are what prompted Trump to ask Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. This act led to Democrats impeaching President Trump despite no conclusive evidence that Trump withheld U.S. funding from Ukraine to obtain information on the Bidens.
For his part, Trump has called that phone call “perfect.” And given the latest revelations about Hunter Biden’s dealings with the besieged country, Trump appears to have had good reason to ask Zelensky for his cooperation.
