Newly released documents show that top Democrat impeachment witness ex-ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch apparently lied under oath when she claimed that she did not know much about the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings, which Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, served on the board of.
Congressman Lee Zeldin slammed Yovanovitch for her failed attempt to conceal her knowledge of Hunter Biden and Burisma by claiming that she couldn’t recall being briefed on the matter.
“This is a woman who is highly regarded as an intelligent woman. She’s Princeton educated. She’s someone who I don’t believe actually didn’t recall, didn’t remember. When I was pressing her for additional information beyond the press reports. What else does she know about Burisma and Zlochevsky? And all we could get back is ‘I don’t recall.’ I just don’t buy that.”
However, meeting notes and email documents recovered by the conservative group Citizens United reveal Amb. Yovanovitch met with a representative from Burisma Holdings in December 2016.
Following Amb. Yovanovitch’s impeachment testimony in November 2019, liberal media pundits blindly showered her with praise.
Congressman Zeldin pointed out the mainstream media’s double standards of placing harsher scrutiny on Republican elected officials than on their Democrat counterparts.
“Americans are seeing the double standard. They know that is Marie Yovanovitch was there to remove President Barack Obama from office that you would have many of these same mainstream media outlets calling for there to be a perjury investigation into her. But instead, they’ll ‘fact check’ all of this and claim that nothing she said was dishonest.”
In a recent press conference, Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) revealed that then-Vice President Joe Biden was directly involved with the FBI’s alleged plot to “unmask” General Michael Flynn in order to spy on the incoming Trump Administration.
