  • George Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, testified before a House committee on Nov. 13 that there is no basis for allegations made by President Donald Trump about his 2020 political rival Joe Biden, and his son, Hunter. Democratic Counsel Daniel Goldman questioned Kent during a House impeachment hearing about the content of a July 25 phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during which Trump alleged that Biden, as vice president, had stopped a prosecution in Ukraine. Kent also affirmed that Biden had acted in accordance with U.S. policy in his past dealings with that country.

    THAT'S NOT WHAT BIDEN SAID.
    THAT'S NOT WHAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SAID.

    Quid pro quo Joe Biden and his druggie son are in the middle of the corruption. Get The Biden’s in this clown show. Let’s ask Hunter to start speaking in Russian like he would at a board meeting. Ukraine. That would clear a lot of this up or not.

    Earlier Kent himself literally said it was a problem that Biden was working for the corrupt Burisma company with zero experience

      @BSPrestonEsq JUST LIKE YOU MISSED JOE BIDEN'S OWN "QUID PRO QUO" STATEMENT ON CAMERA. HOW DID YOU MISS THAT ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM.

      These questions were about Joe Biden. His statements about Burisma were in reference to Hunter Biden. Did you miss that detail?

    Clever undercutting the fake news about Biden that caused all this in the first place, irony is that if trump/Putin trolls hadn't spread it trump might not be in this predicament. Not so clever... 🙄

      @Chris Topher Even if thats true, how does that relate to his father? The inquiry should be wether trump or biden misused their position as PotUS/VP and if they acted according to official policies. If Joe Biden did not know anything about his sons dealings (which is an option) then trial his son (if he is guilty).
      An investigation should be there to find out the truth and not to benefit neither Trump nor Biden
