Donald Trump asks Vladimir Putin for dirt on Bidens – awsforwp


WASHINGTON – Donald Trump wants a favor from Vladimir Putin.

Amid criticism of his high regard for the Russian president and accused war criminal, former president Trump used an interview this week to ask Putin to release any information he has on reports a Russian oligarch gave money a decade ago to a company co-founded by President Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

“I would think Putin would know the answer to that,” Trump said in an interview on the “Just The News” television program. “I think he should release it. I think we should know that answer.”

There is no evidence Hunter Biden engaged in illicit dealings with Russia. He is reportedly under investigation by the Justice Department over taxes in connection with business operations in China; the president’s son has also been criticized by Trump and others over his financial activity in Ukraine.
