The President says it would be ‘appropriate’ for him to ask Attorney General William Barr to open a probe into business dealings between Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden and a Ukrainian Gas Company.
He made the comment in an interview with ‘Politico’ on Friday, just before his attorney Rudy Giuliani was expected to meet with Ukraine’s new President to discuss the issue.
Giuliani later canceled the meeting, calling it a set up by ‘vocal critics’ of the President.
Biden has long received scrutiny for threatening to withhold $1 Billion in aid to Ukraine back in 2016, to pressure prosecutors to throw out an investigation into a private gas company, where his son was on the board of directors.
