Pam Bondi, the former attorney general of Florida who is a member of the Trump impeachment legal team, outlined Monday the concerns she said the president had about potential corruption on the part of the Bidens in Ukraine.
Bondi pointed to numerous news reports raising questions about Hunter Biden’s appointment to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma. The move "looks nepotistic at best, nefarious at worst,” Bondi said, speaking on the Senate floor during the impeachment trial."
"When the House managers gave you their presentation when they submitted their brief, they repeatedly referenced Hunter Biden and Burisma… They referenced Biden or Burisma over 400 times. And when they gave these presentations they said there was nothing to see, it was a sham," Bondi told the Senate. "This is fiction."
"You’ve heard from the House managers that there is not anything to see here; that all of this is baseless," Bondi concluded. "All that we are saying is that there was a basis to talk about this, to raise this issue."
"All we’re saying is that there was a basis to talk about this, to raise this issue, and that is enough," Bondi explained. "Burisma was so corrupt that George Kent said he intervened to prevent USAID from cosponsoring an event with Burisma."
