On an episode of The Michael Knowles Show, Knowles talked about Joe Biden’s knowledge of Hunter Biden’s dealings in Ukraine.
In a partial transcript from the show, Knowles stated, “So on the actual point, who was corrupt? Is this impeachment inquiry against Trump legislative? We know that there was corruption on the part of the Bidens in the Ukraine. We got the affidavits, we got the testimony, we’ve got Joe Biden contradicting himself and lying about it in public. Joe Biden was talking to Peter Doocy the other day on Fox News — I actually, coincidently, was on Fox News while this was happening. So we saw it real time, gave our instant reaction.”
Knowles went on to say that he “immediately knew” that Joe Biden was lying when he told Doocy, “I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.” Knowles backed his claim by citing Hunter Biden’s statement to the New Yorker in July, where he stated that he spoke to his father about Burisma. Joe Biden had then told Hunter, “I hope you know what you’re doing.”
Knowles continued, “What’s he lying about? What’s he trying to cover up? We know it’s crooked.” He cited a 2014 interview where ABC News’ Jon Karl asked Jay Carney, the White House Press Secretary, about the same issue. Carney, who was Obama’s spokesman, did not leap to Biden’s defense, and instead “distanced himself” and “he stammered” and “referred it to the vice president’s office.”
In the 2014 interview, Carney stated, “I would refer you to the vice president’s office. I saw those reports, Hunter Biden and other members of the Biden family are obviously private citizens and where they work does not reflect an endorsement by the administration or by the vice president or president, but I would refer you to the vice president’s office.”
