Trump Threatened Ukraine For Joe Biden Dirt


>>We have a little more information regarding
the whistleblower complaint that was filed against Donald Trump, and a conversation he
had with a foreign leader where he allegedly made some sort of promise. Now, the whistle blower, who has not been
identified, is part of the intelligence community, and this individual found the phone call troubling
enough, and the alleged promise troubling enough, to file a formal whistleblower complaint. Now, after that was done, there’s been a lot
of back and forth about whether or not the Director of National Intelligence did the
right thing in withholding details of this complaint from congressional law makers. But today we found out that Ukraine is involved,
allegedly involved. We still don’t know too many specifics about
what happened in these exchanges between Donald Trump and the leader of Ukraine, but I do
want to give you some of the details we do know so far. So two and a half weeks before the complaint
was filed, Trump spoke with the Ukrainian president, a comedian and political newcomer,
who was elected in a landslide in May. Now, that call is already under investigation
by House Democrats, according to the Washington post, who are examining whether Trump and
his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, sought to manipulate the Ukrainian government into helping Trump’s
reelection campaign. Lawmakers have demanded a full transcript
and a list of participants on the call. Now, after this story broke by the Washington
Post, the Wall Street Journal broke a story indicating that, on at least eight separate
occasions, Donald Trump pressured the Ukrainian government to conduct some sort of investigation
into Joe Biden’s son. Now, Joe Biden’s son was employed as a board
member for an oil company in Ukraine. And so it appears, based on reporting right
now, that Trump was looking to get some help from Ukraine to find dirt or dig up dirt on
Joe Biden’s son. And remember, Donald Trump is seeking reelection,
so this is not something that you should be doing, this is illegal, you shouldn’t be working
with foreign governments to help you in your campaign. So Trump, in a July phone call, repeatedly
pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s
son, urging the President about eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer,
on the probe. I’m gonna go to a timeline to kind of help
people really understand and visualize how this all went down, but I do want to get your
thoughts before we go to that video.>>Well, I mean, he’s done it before, he sought
the Russians helped to win the first election. So now he’s just moving over to Ukraine to
get help. I think it would be really funny if we found
out that the whistleblower were was Melania. You know what I’m saying? She’s just trying to get him out of there
or something, you know?>>I really want my husband to be best.>>Please get them out.>>No, but it’s, you know what I found also
very troubling was, before we found out it was Ukraine, there was a list going around,
and because this guy really functions, a lot of people said we want an outsider. We want someone without experience, but you
start to see what someone without experience does. They talk to other governments, revealing
secrets sometimes, asking for favors sometimes. And the list included, I remember people were
saying it could have, before we knew it was Ukraine and we still don’t know for sure,
but they were saying it could be Ukraine, it could be Israel, it could be North Korea,
it could be Russia. We don’t know who he gave some information
to, he’s been talking to illicitly. So that shows you that this guy really doesn’t
know what he’s doing.>>I think it’s a mixed bag. I think that he either doesn’t know what he’s
doing in some cases, or he knows exactly what he’s doing. But might not know that he’s breaking the
law, which is not an excuse, but in this case, I mean, after that lengthy Mueller investigation,
he knows that working with a foreign country to help benefit your campaign is unlawful.>>Yeah.>>That was the whole point of the investigation. So again, look, this stuff is not, in my mind,
it’s not confirmed yet. We don’t know the extent to which an alleged
deal was made. What we do know is that there are individuals
who are informed on what’s going on behind the scenes, and they’re speaking to the press
about this investigation. At the same time, remember, congressional
lawmakers still don’t have the details of that whistleblower report. The Director of National Intelligence has
decided that he doesn’t want to share this information with Congress. His name is Joseph McGuire, and he alleges
that he spoke to the Justice Department, the same Justice Department under William Barr
who likes to protect Donald Trump. And they informed him that they don’t need,
that he doesn’t need, to go and speak to Congress about the whistleblower complaint. Okay, but the Inspector General is very much
concerned, and he is the one who has kind of come forward to tell congressional lawmakers
what’s really going on, right?>>Yeah.>>So the whole issue here is, did Donald
Trump tell Ukranian politicians that he would withhold foreign aid from the country unless
they did an investigation into Joe Biden’s son? That is what the allegation is here. And to help you understand the timeline of
how this all allegedly went down, let’s take a look at this next video. It’s Alisyn Camerota, explaining everything
in detail.>>Giuliani and President Trump spoke with
the Ukrainians. The President threatened to withhold $250
million dollars in military aid to Ukraine. Weeks later, three house committees launched
investigations into whether the President and Giuliani were pressuring the Ukrainians
to help Mr. Trump’s reelection campaign. A few days after that, the Trump administration
abandoned the effort to withhold military aid, and now CNN has learned the White House
and Justice Department advised the Intelligence Chief to withhold the whistleblower’s complaint
from Congress.>>So the House Democrats, specifically individuals
in the House Intelligence Committee, are moving forward with the investigation. They wanna know exactly what that whistleblower
report contained. But at the same time, I mean, there’s so many
investigations being done on Donald Trump, and it just feels like nothing ever gets anywhere,
because they’re unwilling to take it to the next step, right?>>And I think that’s absolutely right. And kind of just to build off what you were
saying earlier, I think Donald Trump knows what he’s doing. It’s the fact that we won’t hold him accountable. He also knows that nothing’s gonna happen,
so why not continue to break the law? And we see this kind of relationship he’s
built with Russia. And we know that Russia and Ukraine have had
strained relationships to begin with. So to be able to join forces and bully up,
and let me see if I can share strong-arm Ukraine by withholding aid, and who knows what else
he told the Ukraine’s President in that call. But we know that he doesn’t see any ramifications,
because we’ve given him no reason to think there will be any ramifications or consequences
for his behavior.>>Yeah, and he’s also had, I guess, this
week there was a couple of appeals. They were trying to get his taxes, he appealed
that. If he’s got deep pockets and he can keep appealing
stuff, it will take some in the Republican Party to open their eyes and go, and I don’t
know if it’s ever going to happen, but for them to go, wait a minute, this is actually,
it is an attack on America and American democracy. Because really what he’s doing is, by playing
this game, making a call and telling another guy to strong-arm his own government to investigate
something, it’s just basically, it is the playbook of a dictator, right? So it is going to take someone in the Republican
Party, or something to happen that’s undeniable. I mean, this is just an open, they’re doing
it in the open, right?>>They are doing it in the open and he is,
to Adrienne’s point, he’s definitely emboldened by the fact that he hasn’t been held accountable
at all by the Democratic Party. They’re incredibly weak, Nancy Pelosi specifically
who refuses to even open an impeachment inquiry, right? And so some people might argue, all this nonsense
about Russia, what’s the point of this, it’s not gonna go anywhere, but it’s not just about
Russia, okay? These are new allegations that aren’t even
related to Russia. This is about Ukraine, and potentially having
a US president try to dig up dirt about his political opponent for his re-election campaign
using a foreign government. That’s illegal, he’s not supposed to do that. But there’s also a litany of other issues
including the obstruction of justice, which again, if you read the Mueller report, is
clearly outlined In that report. There’s the fact that he used his charitable
foundation to enrich himself. There’s so many different, the hush money
payments, but it doesn’t matter. There’s nothing, in my mind, that would, even
if it’s clear-cut, it’s obvious, the evidence is right in front of you, there is nothing
that will push Democratic leadership to have the courage to do the right thing, and that’s
pathetic. And the same goes for Republicans, Republicans
are protecting their tribe. They’re protecting Trump, and they refuse
to hold him accountable because they’re worried about their own political careers. Every Republican politician who was spoken
out against Trump has paid a political price for that. So it’s about the party, it’s about the Republican
voters and what they’re complicit in, and it’s really pathetic and sad. One thing I wanted to clarify, though, is
Michael Atkinson, who is the Inspector General. He answered some questions by members of Congress. And while he says that it is not his right
to share the details of the report, the one thing that he did tell them is that it wasn’t
one call. So Michael Atkinson actually said that there
were several conversations between Donald Trump and the leader of Ukraine. However, he can’t get into the details of
all of those calls or what the inspector, I’m sorry, or what the whistleblower’s report
said. Now, Donald Trump, though, has been asked
some questions about this, and let’s take a look at what he has to say.>>It’s a partisan whistleblower, they shouldn’t
even have information. I’ve had conversations with many leaders,
they’re always appropriate.>>On that point, did you discuss Joe Biden,
his son, or his family with the leader?>>It doesn’t matter what I discuss. But I will say this, somebody ought to look
into Joe Biden’s statement cuz it was disgraceful. Where he talked about billions of dollars
that he’s not giving to a certain country unless a certain prosecutor is taken off the
case. So somebody ought to look into that, and you
wouldn’t because he’s a Democrat. I don’t know the identity of the whistleblower. I just hear it’s a partisan person, meaning
it comes out from another party.>>Did you mention Joe Biden during the conversation?>>I don’t want to talk about any conversation.>>So what he’s referring to is a prosecutor
who was looking into the oil company that Joe Biden’s son was working at. And this prosecutor was so corrupt that politicians
in Ukraine voted him out, right? And the government of Ukraine looked into
these allegations against Joe Biden’s son, alleging there might have been a conflict
of interest when it came to this prosecutor, and they actually cleared him of it. So Donald Trump, let’s not allow republicans,
and specifically Donald Trump, to distract us from what the heart of this issue is. It is not Joe Biden, someone who I have no
love for, by the way. It has everything to do with the fact that
he could be working with a foreign government to dig up dirt on his political opponent,
which is illegal. It is a crime. He was investigated for that in the context
of the Russia investigation. This is this is the country we’re living in,
right?>>First of all, he looked horrible.>>When doesn’t he?>>Well, presidency is supposed to age you
but, I mean, he’s just like, I mean, he looked horrible.>>Yeah, there was not much to
>>I’m not that pretty but, I mean, he just looks worse than, I mean, I don’t know, he
looks guilty.>>He looks stressed.>>He looks guilty and stressed.>>He looks like he’s using my foundation.>>He’s using your-
>>Okay?>>But I’ll tell you what-
>>The color’s not right.>>The thing with what you were just saying
about what he brought up, I was just hearing somebody analyze the fact that I guess Biden,
in some In some speech, referenced that whole, the investigation from the Ukrainian prosecutor. And I guess that’s circulating now amongst
a lot of conservatives saying, look, Biden’s admitting to this, so basically they’ve taken
that, turned it into a conspiracy theory.>>Of course.>>And he’s trying to deflect yet again. And they’re going into, there was a congressman
who was saying, this sounds like another one of those deep state type things. The thing about the deep state, and the crooked
media, and the fake news, all this stuff, all right, let’s say there is, at some point,
someone’s out to get you. Maybe someone’s not on your side, maybe you
see that. But if every time you do something that does
not seem right and you go, no, no, it’s not me, it’s them. Every time someone criticizes, as a comedian,
I’m a comedian, if every time people keep criticizing me I go, well, they’re obviously
on Kevin Hart’s payroll. They’re trying to get me, obviously. I mean it’s like, at some point you gotta
sit there and go, we’ve done something wrong, and he never does that. I know that’s politics, you’re not supposed
to, but this guy’s never, at one point, just said, look, I was wrong or I’m wrong or maybe
this is wrong. He just deflects and moves on.>>And he also, he self-incriminates all the
time on Twitter. I mean, his Twitter storm just last night,
I woke up and it was like nothing but defensive, angry tweets, which make him look even more
guilty, right? So look, again, we need to know more detail
as to what took place during those multiple conversations. We need to have some confirmation that he
was trying to work with a foreign government to dig up dirt on a political opponent. Again, none of this stuff is really verified
yet. But what I do know is that even if it is verified,
what’s happened time and time again is he hasn’t faced any consequences for it. So, I mean, can you imagine how brazen you
need to be to undergo the kind of investigation he just went through with Mueller, and then
turn around and do the exact same thing that you were accused of with Russia.>>This is such the life he leads, and a lot
of Americans of privilege lead this exact same life, where they continue to engage in
this behavior. And we’ve recently seen that with the Me Too
movement, when we find out that litanies of women have come against these men, and brought
all the evidence, and they are still in their jobs and position. Trump is just reflective of the fact that
our society does not hold certain individuals accountable. But lets them stay in their position, regardless
of whether they are following the rules, the law, what may have you. And we have an accountability problem, and
that’s it.>>Absolutely.>>And I think he placed the call just a few
days after the Mueller report. I mean, he didn’t even give it a-
>>A moment to breathe.>>See he doesn’t even have to try to hide,
that’s how egregious our system is.>>I keep saying he’s kind of like the American
Muammar Gaddafi. Gaddafi had had so many yes people around
him that he just hadn’t heard no in a long time. This guy was born into privilege, has heard
yes his whole life. And so, like you said, he just keeps repeating
whatever, even if somebody says to him. I mean, there should be somebody there that
goes, listen, there’s got to be, if you really wanna try and get this message to the Ukrainian
guy, there’s got to be another way to do it. You shouldn’t be doing it.>>Yeah, well, he’ll ask that person to resign.>>Yeah.>>Remember?>>Yeah.>>He surrounds himself with yes men. And there is a price to pay when you do that,
cuz you have no one challenging you and you’re gonna slip up. And we all known Donald Trump is messy as
hell.

  1. Hold up so they are just going to ignore the fact that Joe Biden as vice president told Ukraine to stop investigating his sons crimes or he would cut their foreign aid and bragged about it on camera. Joe literally did what you are accusing turm to protect his criminal son.

  2. Trump on looking for Joe dirt: "But I will say this, somebody ought to look in Joe Biden's statement cuz it was disgraceful."

    Joe Biden: "Life's a garden. Dig it."

  3. TYT is stupid beyond words can describe; it tries to play nice with the treasonous traitor Trump. The treasonous traitor Trump will eat you alive if you play nice with him; he has no shame, no soul, and pure evil. It's never wrong if you stick to the truth; you will see your way in the dark if you have the light with you.

  4. How idiotic are Democrats to think the Trump broke the law on a line that he knows is recorded, and transcribe every time he gets a dial tone, this country really needs to wake up to what it's doing to itself with all this infighting, look up what democracy is about and what Democrats are about, and look what they were about when this country first started breaking laws, when the Republican Party first started by Abraham Lincoln we took the slaves away from Democrats and they are still pissed off about that… Get over it dumbasses grow a pair and try not to depend on the government to take care of you all your life from cradle to casket… Run your own life…

  5. Live on your feet not on your knees…

  6. The Hill – "there is a missing part of the story that the American public needs in order to assess what really happened: Giuliani’s contact with Zelensky adviser and attorney Andrei Yermak this summer was encouraged and facilitated by the U.S. State Department.
    Giuliani didn’t initiate it. A senior U.S. diplomat contacted him in July and asked for permission to connect Yermak with him. Then, Giuliani met in early August with Yermak on neutral ground — in Spain — before reporting back to State everything that occurred at the meeting."

    "the allegations that Ukrainian officials wanted to pass on involved both efforts by the Democratic National Committee to pressure Ukraine to meddle in the 2016 U.S. election as well as Joe Biden’s son’s effort to make money in Ukraine while the former vice president managed U.S.-Ukraine relations"

  7. Donald Trump is incapable, in whatever cerebral function he has, of cause and effect linkage – possibly because, to avoid crippling guilt over a lifetime of riding roughshod over those around him, he has consciously (in earlier days) broken such connections and told himself it "wasn't my fault". He prefers chaos since this means no one can accurately predict outcomes and his own inability to link thoughts is not so stark a contrast. We are dealing with an individual who would readily torch mankind's entire library of knowledge if that meant he never again had to hear about his own shortcomings with words.

  8. Biden literally threatened to do the same thing if Ukraine didn't fire a judge he didn't like. Trump is smart to suspect Biden's nefarious actions in Ukraine and investigate it.

  9. How awesome is Ana? Beautiful, knowledgeable, professional, and articulate. She knows how to take the lead. I think she over thinks things (phrases) sometimes. Which makes her look not as good as she actually is. She just needs to go with it.

  10. An outsider isn't such a bad thing. One with military experience would have had a better idea of security. But even with out that, we needed someone with a moral code & willing to pay attention to the expert help around them. tRump has non of this, but I think that he knows what he is doing. He just doesn't care

  11. Nobody cares.
    We need this Orangutan sent to prison.
    Even if impeachment comes NOW he will be dead in prison soon.
    He's old, stupid and useless.
    Even the courts in Southern District of New York, he'll end up convicted for being a criminal.
    Seriously, Pelosi must have a huge slush fund for her 'disappearance '.

  13. At least Trump is president. Clinton and Obama investigated Trump before he ever stepped into office. Besides, there is so much fake news that the facts seem to not matter.

  14. He definitely knows working with a foreign country to be elected, but after mueller, he knows there is no consequence for doing so.

  15. I always thought elected officials were there to serve the best interest of the country. I've always been wrong.
    Drumpf's propagandist said about the mass shootings-if there's no mention of drumpf motives, blame the left. Now he blames the left for everything. Even people that have never been a real president.
    Pelosi needs to do something or be replaced. DO SOMETHING NANCY!

  16. Is this the best Republicans have to offer as a “President”??? A CRIMINAL-TRAITOR?… and they still want to defend him?… All Republicans are traitors to this country and non-American in their support of a fellow criminal.

  17. There’s no hope for our country. He’s attempting to collide with a foreign government right in front of our faces and no one is going to do a damn thing.

  18. Trump is so over the top and "in your face" with his criminality its almost surreal. Everyone knows [exactly] what he's done and is doing, but the whole world is just waiting for something to be done about it.

  19. Biden bribed the prosecutor in his sons company’s case, video of him bragging about withholding 1billion in aid if he didn’t drop the case, Biden just as corrupt, Biden got away with it, but everyone is all over Trump for wanting to expose Biden’s corruption? Get the whole story Ana.

  20. You dummies, she won’t open impeachment because Pelosi corruption will be exposed. They’re all corrupt this latest thing will expose Biden’s corruption. Protecting themselves

  21. He pees on you daily. You all talk while he pees in your face, and then laughs and walks away. I used to think you will become a Banana Republic, but it's no longer a future tense thing.

    Edit: I wish you well and I hope he changes his ways.

  22. We can and should say Trump is wrong if he pressured or bribed them to get dirt on a political opponent, but the thing is the dirt appears to be real. That shouldn't surprise anyone who bothers to look at Biden's record of obvious corruption and family dealing. He's used his position to get his sons and brother positions with people or corps he helped out (credit card cos in Delaware for example) and that's how Hunter ended up in Ukraine. Imagine if it were Trump and his son and Russia… nobody defending Biden would take Trump's word and the word of the corrupt Russian or Ukraine gov he made deals with. Of course they're not going to say anything corrupt occurred. The coverage of this is warped. Both things can be true. This should make both sides look bad.

  23. Trump will shut the he’ll up asshole your not worth any ones vote in your losing more everyday. You shot your big fat mouth off you better watch your back cause you might say something wrong to the wrong person I hope your insurance policy is up dated lolololol

  24. Way to go whistleblower keep pushing trump into the wall give out all info you have on this dickhead and help get him out .

  25. Trump is a 2 year old toddler who cries every time he passes the candy at the supermarket check out isle, and Pelosi enables him by allowing his behavior to go unchecked. Impeach the MF

  26. Amazing how you people do not see how badly, you're getting played. Trump planted a phantom and the MSM turned into the GHOST BUSTERS !!! LMAO!
    Trump is clean, and that is nothing your conjecture and conspiracy theories will ever change.
    Clottin' eye Joe Biden is going down quicker than the Titanic from this latest farce.

  27. When someone is guilty of a crime, he/she does absolutely everything to cover the facts, in the other hand, if there's no wrong doing, usually the people doesn't care if they are investigated, how come this administration doesn't let the facts come out if not wrong doing has been done? 🤔🤔

  28. There is a crime family in the WH. The head of it – happen to be the prez. of America! Not United States- because there is nothing united about it ……But it really shows what the fabric of America is made of….It IS NOT: Love/Respect/Understanding/Tolerance/Values & Humanitarianism……

  29. It’s a sham that the US can’t even hold a HONEST election they have to cheat but it will blow up in their face soon enough .

  30. TYT are such hacks. They are covering up the real story that Biden illegal using the power of his position to enrich his son and protect him from a corruption charges by have a prosecutor drop from the case.

  31. Let’s not forget that it would even be illegal if he had OUR intelligence agency investigate joe Biden’s son o get dirt for the election

  32. I'm ok with both Trump ad Biden's son being investigated. IF they are guilty, then they face the consequences (Impeachment, prison etc), Warren wins presidency. All good with that scenario!

  33. I've actually thought…is this a con by Trump so when nothing materializes he can scream yell "fake news, lame stream media, presidential harassment, deep state" bla bla bla. I just can't keep my hopes up today. But God, if you exist, I pray 😉 😤

  34. Julian Assange helped destroy the integrity of the 2016 election. There are a lot of crumby individuals who would love to play the same part for trump in 2020.

  35. Will Trump ever be held accountable? What does he have to do for the House to impeach him? Does he literally have to shoot someone on 5th ave? Nancy Pelosi… Why TF were u ever appointed speaker???

  36. Shows how much Trump follows politics. Biden isn't even top candidate, and if he reveals dirt before Democratic primary, he actually helps Democrats to pick candidate which is more likely to to beat Trump.

  37. Biden and his son should have to be investigated, not only in Ukraine, but in US. Biden was making threats to Ukrainians with billion of US dollars, taxpayers dollars.

  38. So, whistleblower is saying he heard Trump threaten Ukrainians they will not get 250 million in aid if they don't investigate Hunter Biden. And we have Joe Biden on tape explaining how he threatened Ukrainians they will not get 1 billion in aid if they don't fire a prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden. Getting rid of Trump does nothing, Biden is no better, no better.

  39. So if Trump ignored all this as Obama obviously had done, the MSM would be hollering about that too.

    It needs investigated. I heard about this long before Trump ever mentioned it..

  40. As he screams "No collusion", he's going out of his way to collude with a different foreign government to get dirt on a political opponent during an election.

  41. "Trump Threatened Ukraine For Joe Biden Dirt" You mean Trump spoke to the Ukraine Government to investigate the crimes Joe Biden and his son committed because the media won't??

  42. Someone should look into that, but you wouldn't because he's democrat
    There was a impeachment proceedings against Clinton for his affair with Lewinsky. If Kennedy wasn't shot and killed, he would probably be arrested and impeached for his alleged involvement with the mob Red Dwarf – Tikka to Ride
    So that they wouldn't looking into Biden because he is democrat is BS.

  43. Wow what a spin job! It was Biden who threatened Urkraine to stop investigating Hunter's ….oh never mind. You are the creeps that invented AOC….
