President Trump: Joe Biden Lied About Hunter Biden Investigation On The Debate Stage

|

President Trump discussed new reporting that confirms the FBI has indeed been investigating Joe Biden's son Hunter for financial crimes related to his business in Ukraine. President Trump was impeached for asking for help from an allied country about an ongoing criminal investigation. Trump also criticized Attorney General Bill Barr for not announcing an investigation.



During an interview aired Sunday on "FOX & Friends," Trump said:


KILMEADE: Hunter Biden this week has confirmed two investigations on him. One on Jim Biden. Do you feel that the word is you’re disappointed that William Barr knew about this in the Spring?

TRUMP: Everybody is. Who isn’t disappointed?

KILMEADE: Right.

TRUMP: Joe Biden lied on the debate stage. He said there’s nothing happening, nothing happening and Bill Barr should have stepped up. I’ll tell you what, say what you want about Robert Mueller. When BuzzFeed put out a phony article -- I think it was BuzzFeed -- but BuzzFeed put out a phony article, Bob Mueller stepped out and he said that article was a phony.

And then there was ultimately proven there was no collusion. No -- after two years, no collusion. But Bob Mueller stood up and he -- he interjected that this article was false. Bill Barr should have done the same thing.

KILMEADE: Jonathan Turley said that he had no choice, that he would have been like -- he would have been like James Comey again.

TRUMP: All he had to do is say an investigation’s going on. And by the way, I don’t want to see anything bad happen to Hunter Biden. Whatever it is, it is the facts. But I don’t want to see anything bad to Hunter Biden.

And I purposely stay out of it. But when you affect an election, Bill Barr frankly did the wrong thing. When they are saying things, making statements and the press is purposely not reporting it, Bill Barr, I believe, not believe, I know, had an obligation to set the record straight, just like Robert Mueller set the record straight.

You know, he set it straight. A very bad thing was said and it was false article, a false statement which you know, usually they are with the -- with the media. But this was a false statement. And Robert Mueller stood up and he said that is a false statement. And that was a great thing. I’m going to go.
