What you’re about to read and watch really makes you wonder what MSNBC, and by extension all mainstream media, considers valid “evidence.”
In light of the suspicious dealings Joe Biden and son Hunter have had with the Ukraine, the left-wing anti-Trump Rachel Maddow Show sought to “educate” viewers on the whole scandal (more like spit out defense of Biden and bash Trump more.)
It’s not surprising that they took a “see-no-evil” approach to telling the tale of the Biden’s potential crimes in the Ukraine, but the way they did it is just astonishingly, blantantly full of lies, ignorant (or stupid, take your pick.)
“President Trump had repeatedly suggested without evidence that Joe Biden used his VP position to pressure Ukraine to fire the country’s top prosecutor,” claimed MSNBC’s Ali Velshi.
Here’s the clip:
Now's a good time to point out the facts that MSNBC is purposefully ignoring here.
Joe Biden himself ADMITTED and even BRAGGED about getting the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating his son's involvement with an energy firm.
Watch this clip of Biden's egotistical admission here:
But, apparently, there's "no evidence."
The Washington Examiner has more to say about the MSNBC's blundered "fact-check":
President Trump’s private phone call in July with the Ukrainian president may be a massive election-year scandal for the White House.
Then again, it could also be another media-hyped dud. It wouldn’t be the first.
The story is pretty confusing and there are a lot of moving parts. Whatever you do though, don’t rely on MSNBC’s Ali Velshi to keep you well-informed.
“President Trump has repeatedly suggested, without evidence, that Joe Biden used his VP position to pressure Ukraine to fire the country’s top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin [emphasis added],” the MSNBC news anchor said Monday afternoon.
That is all true except for the part where Biden is on tape bragging about doing exactly that.
“I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting $1 billion,'” Biden recalled in 2018 during an event sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations.
He was speaking specifically of his efforts as vice president to pressure the Ukrainian government into firing the notoriously corrupt Shokin, who at the time was toying with the idea of prosecuting an energy company with financial ties to Biden’s son, Hunter.
“I said: ‘We’re leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor’s not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden added. “Well, son of a bitch, he got fired.”
The Daily Caller also said:
MSNBC’s Ali Velshi said Monday there is no evidence Joe Biden used his position to pressure Ukraine to fire the country’s prosecutor, even though the former vice president was recorded admitting to the allegations in 2018.
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate has come under fire over past allegations he forced Ukrainian authorities to fire a top prosecutor looking into a gas company connected with his son Hunter Biden. The allegations resurfaced in September after a whistleblower alleged President Donald Trump pressured the country to look into Joe Biden.
“President Trump had repeatedly suggested without evidence that Joe Biden used his VP position to pressure Ukraine to fire the country’s top prosecutor,” Velshi said Monday on “MSNBC Live.”
Trump dismissed the allegations and called them “highly partisan.”
Joe Biden admitted on camera to pressuring Ukrainian officials in 2016 to fire the top prosecutor at a Council on Foreign Relations event on Jan. 23, 2018.
