A Ukrainian lawmaker is claiming that the country’s top prosecutor made up a conspiracy against Joe Biden to win favor with Trump.
The lawmaker, Serhiy Leshchenko, said he had been given parts of a letter written by the prosecutor with the intent of currying favor with the Trump 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.
The letter, purportedly written by Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, said that Biden, while U.S. vice president, personally received income from a Ukrainian natural gas company in exchange for “lobbying activities and political support.”
The lawmaker said those allegations were false.
The allegations were made against Biden so that the prosecutor could hold on to his job in the new Ukrainian administration by showing himself to be a useful partner for Trump
Trump’s Ukreinian Scheme Against Biden Falls Apart
Trump was planning on running the same campaign that he ran against Hillary Clinton against Joe Biden in 2020, but that plan has quickly crumbled. However, this should be a warning to all Democrats. The world has learned from Russia’s manipulation of Trump. They know that Trump is on the hunt for anything that he can use against Joe Biden. People will be feeding Trump false information about the former vice president for as long as he is in the 2020 race.
Donald Trump won’t be able to get away with stunts that he pulled while he was running against Hillary Clinton. Trump is a one-trick pony, and in 2020, Democrats have their eyes wide open and are looking out for that trick.
