Bidens committed no wrongdoing in Ukraine — ‘despite Giuliani’s pleas’: prosecutor

Published

on

Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko has admitted that former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden were not involved in any wrongdoing in Ukraine.

According to Bloomberg News, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer alleged that the Bidens had a conflict of interest while encouraging Ukrainian politicians to crack down on corruption.

“Giuliani said that Biden could have been trying to help his son’s business dealings and that Ukraine needs to investigate,” Bloomberg reported.

But as of Thursday, prosecutors revealed there were no concerns of unethical behavior.

Just days ago, a Ukrainian lawmaker alleged that the top prosecutor was manufacturing “a conspiracy” about the Biden family. Lawmaker Serhiy Leshchenko said that he was given parts of a letter written by a prosecutor who wanted to curry favor with President Donald Trump’s administration.

“The letter was sent by the prosecutor through unofficial channels to President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, the lawmaker told journalists on Monday in Kiev as he distributed copies of two pages,” Bloomberg reported.

Mitchell then asked about Trump's plan to hold his convention speech at the White House.

Trump’s psychiatric disturbance could destroy democracy if he wins a second term: clinical psychologist

Published

I’m not being hyperbolic or melodramatic when I say that democracy itself is on the line on November 3. Donald Trump has been on a mission to subvert our democracy and to push it toward an autocracy. No president has ever disavowed democracy like Trump. No president has ever wanted to change our democratic way of life like Trump.

Trump has shown little interest or intent in following our Constitution. He is not abiding by the emoluments clause. He breaks norms and rules at will. He does not recognize that the three branches of government are co-equal. He operates as if the executive branch has total power. Our democracy is not based on the executive branch having absolute power. It requires that the three branches have separate powers in a check-and-balances system.

"You weren't investigating a crime, were you?" Graham asked Yates.

"We were investigating a counter-intelligence threat," Yates responded.
