“The real scandal is not about the firing of the prosecutor!! — it’s about U.S. cash for Ukraine gas. It involves not just the Bidens, but former Secretary of State John Kerry and a growing number of Democratic senators as our special investigation will reveal,” said Steve Hilton, host of his own news/talk show on Fox News Channel.
Hilton, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and Sean; One America News’ Emmy-Award winner Graham Ledger and investigative reporter Pearson Sharpe, and others have displayed their anger at the news media pushing the Democratic Party’s bogus Trump-Ukraine quid pro quo story invented by the great pretender who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, D-California. During Hilton’s show, he revealed that at least two groups of Democratic Party senators who have been the true suspects colluding with Ukrainian interests to advance their own agenda and political careers.
As Hilton states in a transcript of his show available on Fox Opinion:
Remember Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s business partner? He had previously been a top fundraiser for John Kerry, who was Secretary of State at the time. And soon after Devon and Hunter joined the Burisma Board, the company channeled $90,000 to a lobbying firm called ML Strategies, which was headed by none other than David Leiter, John Kerry’s former chief of staff.
That’s handy because then-Secretary of State John Kerry himself has visited Ukraine with promises of U.S. aid and assistance. Well, Leiter registered as a Burisma lobbyist in mid-2014. But in the year leading up to that, he gave close to $60,000 to Democrats, including a select group of U.S. senators who would later be instrumental in pushing cash towards Ukraine’s energy sector, directly in line with Burisma’s interests.
He donated to Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., four times and to Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., three times. A month after the last of those donations, both Markey and Shaheen were among four senators who wrote a letter to President Obama that said, “We should leverage the full resources and expertise of the U.S. government to assist Ukraine in improving its energy efficiency, increasing its domestic production and reforming its energy markets.”
This was at a time when Democrats were waging a war on fossil fuels, opposing fracking, and trying to shut down U.S. energy production. American natural gas was bad for the environment, but Ukrainian natural gas was good for the campaign coffers when it involves Hunter Biden’s business interests and John Kerry’s former chief of staff. As Hilton points out, Sen. Markey’s hypocrisy runs particularly deep:
Sen. Ed Markey was the Senate sponsor of the Green New Deal! He wants to shut down gas production in America. Yet he personally intervened with the Obama administration to send your tax dollars to boost Ukraine’s gas production. And not just once.
Not only did Markey write that letter to Obama, but he sponsored multiple pieces of legislation that called for more U.S. assistance and aid specifically to help Ukraine’s natural gas sector, including one that “directs the Overseas Private Investment Corporation to prioritize support for investments to increase energy efficiency, developed domestic oil and natural gas reserves and develop renewable energy sources in Ukraine.”
Interestingly, as Democrats falsely accuse President Trump of bribing the Ukrainian president to dig up dirt on a political opponent, namely Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, another group of Democratic senators actually asked the Ukrainian government to help the probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller to dig up dirt on Donald J. Trump.
Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.

Steve Hilton of Fox News has put together the best 10 minutes on television explaining why Joe Biden and his son Hunter must be investigated for corruption. Follow the money! Key takeaway: Joe Biden met with Hunter Biden’s business partner two days before Hunter took a job on the board of Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company. Looks like Joe might have been finding work for his ne’er -do-well son. Hilton puts the so-called mainstream news media to shame for their letting the Bidens off the hook. This is what real corruption looks like! As Hilton says )paraphrased), “Of course President Trump asked Ukraine for help in getting to the bottom of this mess!”
