Fox News host Laura Ingraham revealed on her show that last May, the New York Times quashed a story about a White House meeting that took place in January 2016 between Obama administration officials, Ukrainian officials, and the alleged whistleblower, which addressed Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Burisma Holdings.
According to Ingraham, she obtained a chain of State Department emails from May 2019 between New York Times journalist Ken Vogel and State Department official Kate Schilling, when Vogel was seeking comment on his story about the White House meeting between the whistleblower, Ukrainian officials, and the Obama administration.
In the email, Vogel wrote, “We are going to report that [State Department official] Elizabeth Zentos attended a meeting at the White House on 1/19/2016 with Ukrainian prosecutors and embassy officials as well as … [redacted] from the NSC … the subjects discussed included efforts within the United State government to support prosecutions, in Ukraine and the United Kingdom, of Burisma Holdings, … and concerns that Hunter Biden’s position with the company could complicate such efforts.”
Ingraham said this email was forwarded to Schilling’s colleagues Zentos and George Kent, who appears to have been a source for Vogel. The conversation ended on May 3, with the State Department declining to comment. Kent, who was stationed in Kyiv at the time, told House investigators during an impeachment hearing last year that he raised concerns in 2015 about Hunter Biden holding a position with Burisma but was rebuffed by a Joe Biden aide.
Using archived Obama White House visitor logs, Ingraham said her team was able to corroborate details of the January 2016 meeting, showing on the screen the names of Ukrainian officials checked into the White House by Ciaramella, who was Ukraine director on the National Security Council.
The Obama State Department had raised “red flags” about Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Burisma. But, the story about the White House meeting was never published and Ingraham reached out to Vogel and the New York Times to find out why.
Ingraham got a reply from the New York Times director of communications who told her that “Vogel’s request for comment was consistent with their news-gathering process.” In other words, a typical politician’s non-answer.
Nevertheless, Ingraham believes “the timing of their request and the subsequent quashing of the story are very interesting,” because Joe Biden announced his presidential campaign a week before Vogel’s request. Ingraham speculated that Joe Biden’s campaign may have gotten the NYT to kill the story. And Biden’s campaign has threatened media outlets not to run stories, and Ingraham is a veteran of DC, so her opinions are meaningful.
So, why was the story killed? Was someone trying to protect Joe Biden or are the roots of this Obama himself and that’s who they’re really protecting? That would make sense as to why the Obama administration has remained mum.
On the same day as Vogel’s request to the State Department, he had a report published examining how in 2016, then-Vice President Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1.5 billion in U.S. loan guarantees if Ukraine did not fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin.
Vogel has continued to report on the Bidens and Ukraine and the unfolding impeachment saga. He said in a Sept. 21 interview that the Ukraine story posed a “significant liability” for Joe Biden and that there was “more to be told.” Vogel got a report published the next day that declared no evidence had surfaced that showed Joe Biden intentionally tried to protect his son by getting Shokin fired. It’s now catching up with him and from the latest Iowa caucus polls, his corruption looks to derail his run for the presidency.
President Trump is battling the Deep State and is doing an excellent job considering how deep the s**t is stacked. He has some vocal supporters like Jim Jordan and a few others. Jim Jordan rented Laura Loomer’s emails and is ‘interested in having her as part of the Freedom Caucus’ because of her reputation as a fighter of the The Deep State. She’s running in President Trump’s home district, but as AOC has demonstrated power is national and effects all of us. Loomer is running against 4x Pelosi crony with deep bank accounts, so she needs MAGA’s help. Donations of any size are helpful. She’s been endorsed by Judge Jeanine, Michelle Malkin, Brandon STraka, and the Limbaugh team for her willingness to stand up for what’s right regardless of the personal consequences, and they have been huuuuge. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
