State Dept. Official Voiced Concerns Over Hunter Biden’s Ukraine Dealings in 2015 but Was IGNORED by the Obama Team

A State Department official expressed serious concerns about Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings in Ukraine in 2015, only to be ignored by the most criminal regime in the history of our republic?

No, of course, you didn’t because a) the Democrat Party lives and breathes corruption and b) the “mainstream media” propagandists who protect them aren’t ever going to tell you the Obamas are corrupt.

But The Epoch Times isn’t an unknown media operation. In my personal opinion, they are the real deal and the kind of media organization our founders had in mind when they wrote ‘freedom of the press’ into the First Amendment.

A State Department official who specializes in Ukraine policy told a Congressional panel this week that he raised concerns about Hunter Biden’s Ukraine work in 2015 but was ignored.

George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state, told congressional investigators on Oct. 15 that he was worried Biden’s position on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company under investigation by prosecutors there, would make it hard for diplomats attempting to instruct Ukrainian officials on how to avoid conflicts of interest, three people familiar with the testimony told the Washington Post.

Kent said Ukrainian officials would see Biden as a way to curry favor with his father Joe Biden, who was vice president at the time.

Kent raised his concerns with Biden’s office but was rebuffed. A staffer at the office, who was not named, told Kent that Joe Biden didn’t have the “bandwidth” to deal with the issue because his other son, Beau, was involved in a battle with cancer.

Kent’s testimony has not been made public, nor has the testimony of anyone else who has testified to the House as part of the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry, as stipulated by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

While Republicans have demanded testimonies be made public, Schiff said his motivation in blocking their release is to ensure witnesses can’t change their testimonies based on what others have said.

As for Schiff, that’s complete nonsense. He is holding Ukraine-related testimony in private for just this reason: He wants to sequester information that would exonerate President Trump and harm his Party while selectively “leaking” lies to the people in the Washington press.

As for Biden, the excuse that he didn’t have the attention span to ‘deal’ with a complaint regarding Hunter’s sweetheart business deal with Burisma Holdings is also hard to believe.

From what we’ve been able to piece together from random reporting, Joe Biden was Obama’s point man for Ukraine. We know that he was not there to advance Ukraine’s foreign policy and geopolitical agendas but rather that of Obama.

And we know this corrupt politician recovered fast enough from his son’s untimely demise to threaten the Ukrainians if they didn’t stop investigating Burisma while that company was paying Hunter piles and piles of money.

As for the Post reporting this story, it doesn’t absolve those biased pricks from all the fake news they’ve published about Trump. Besides, if they are going after Biden then it must be due to a belief that they don’t think he can win the Democratic presidential nomination or beat Trump next year.

The paper’s loyalties lie with the deep state — nothing more, nothing less.
