As Democrats attempt to move expeditiously with an impeachment inquiry against President Trump for asking the Ukrainian president to investigate allegations of corruption against Hunter Biden, their cohorts at CNN are deliberately misleading the American public about the Biden family’s Ukraine scandal.
CNN President Jeff Zucker was seen in undercover footage released Monday by Project Veritas directing his staff to relentlessly convince the network’s viewers Trump’s impeachment is impending and inevitable.
Meanwhile, CNN’s senior justice correspondent, Evan Perez, is seen in video released by the investigative watchdog Tuesday admitting Biden’s foreign business dealings are heinous and “smell bad.”
“Now, I’ll tell you this, Joe Biden has a problem,” Perez told an undercover Project Veritas reporter Cary Poarch. “His son was trading in his name. It looks bad, it smells bad.”
“It’s not illegal. Nothing is illegal about it,” he continues. “I mean, you’re benefiting from your father’s name. You’re trading his name.”
Provoking Perez to elaborate, Poarch plays along with Perez’s insistence that Biden’s shady business dealings were legal.
“Everybody does that, though,” he said.
Democrats and CNN are hypocritically demanding Trump be impeached over his correspondence with Ukrainian government officials, while they agree the former vice president and his son’s shady business dealings in the Ukraine are nefarious, Perez conceded.
Hunter Biden, sat on the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma and was paid $50,000 a month for no discernible work, while Joe Biden was tasked with overseeing Ukraine for the White House.
“That’s the problem,” Perez said. “How do you go and say
that Donald Trump is the person, get him out of here and convict him when your
son is doing the same shit?”
Project Veritas released the damning undercover footage hours after ABC News aired an interview with Hunter Biden. In the interview, Biden, who has emphatically denied all allegations of corruption regarding his ties to Ukraine, but admitted he used poor judgement in business deals he made with foreign owned companies while his father was vice president.
The associations he made abroad while his father was in the Obama White House jeopardized his public perception, Biden told ABC News’ Amy Robach. .
“In retrospect, look, I think that it was poor judgment on my part,” he said. “Is that I think that it was poor judgment because I don’t believe now when I look back on it — I know that there was — did nothing wrong at all. However, was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is a swamp in—in—in many ways? Yeah.”
“So I take full responsibility for that,” he continued. “Did
I do anything improper? No, not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever. Did I
make a mistake based upon some ethical lapse? Absolutely not.”
A review of Hunter Biden’s career irrefutably shows he has been trading and cashing in on their family name with the implication that giving money to the Biden family wins the favor of Joe Biden.
Biden admitted he would “probably not” have gotten the position with the Ukrainian gas company if he were not the vice president’s son.
“I gave a hook to some very unethical people to act in
illegal ways to try to do some harm to my father,” he stated. “That’s where I
made the mistake.”
The footage of Biden is only one instance of scandal exposed by Project Veritas, which obtained hundreds of hours of undercover footage recorded by Poarch exposing the anti-conservative, anti-Trump bias of officials at the highest levels of the fake news outlet.
Project Veritas confirmed in its bombshell undercover footage Monday Zucker is primarily dedicated to using his network as a propaganda tool to impeach President Trump.
Zucker is heard in the video instructing his staff to
prioritize the network’s new coverage on removing President Trump from office to
create a narrative that convinces the American public Trump’s impeachment is
impending and inevitable.
“I don’t care about the MSNBC event, okay? I don’t care
about them. Let’s just stay very focused on impeachment. We’re moving towards
impeachment,” he said. “we shouldn’t pretend, ‘Oh, this is going one away.’ And
so all these moves are moves towards impeachment.”
Poarch, a satellite technician and a contractor at CNN, Washington D.C. bureau who used a hidden camera to record conversations over several months, told Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe he decided to record the corruption with the media outlet because working at CNN is a “nightmare.”
