Trump asks Putin on an Public Interview to release dirt about Biden and his family
Kathmandu: Former U.S. President Donald Trump asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to share any mortifying issues he had about the Biden family in a new interview published on Tuesday, in a blatant appeal for domestic political assistance from U.S’s biggest adversary.
“I would think Putin would know the answer to that,” Trump said, referring to Hunter Biden’s potential dealings in Russia. “I think he should release it. I think we should know that answer”, the former president added.
While his father, President Joe Biden, was vice president, Hunter Biden was paid handsomely for consulting work he did in foreign countries such as Ukraine and China. These activities and potential financial crimes are the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation by the Justice Department.
The former president’s public appeal to Putin is reminiscent of his infamous July 2016 remark, “Russia, if you’re listening,” in which he asked Putin to hack Hillary Clinton’s private emails. It was the beginning of Trump’s years-long quest to boost his political fortunes through foreign assistance.
