‘Investigate Biden,’ Insists Conservative Pundit Mark Levin on ‘Fox & Friends’

The dust-up started over drummed-up allegations against President Donald Trump regarding his totally professional phone call of July 25 with the president of Ukraine.

Levin demanded to know why the media, including Fox News, is flat-out ignoring former Vice President Joe Biden’s and Hunter Biden’s scandalous activities with Ukraine.

The fiery exchange occurred when Levin hollered, “If you guys in the media would do your damn job, and ask Hunter Biden and Joe Biden what the hell’s going on, maybe the president wouldn’t have to raise the issue.”

Should President Donald Trump be impeached?

He’s right.

And in my view, Fox News is no longer a “friend.”

Most of the media are focused on a nothing-burger phone call that Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July of this year — the transcript of which the White House released so that all Americans as well as Congress could read exactly what was said.

Trump asked Zelensky, as part of that conversation, to investigate Joe Biden’s strong-arming of the Ukraine government to fire a prosecutor who was looking into fraud committed by Hunter Biden and his overseas company.

The former vice president managed to get the prosecutor fired — and Biden later bragged about it on camera last year.

Levin is curious about why much of the media have no interest in that story — nor in identifying the so-called “whistleblower” who drew attention to the July phone call.

Things got even more heated when Ed Henry asked Levin if Trump did anything “illegal” during that phone call.

“Well, we know it’s not illegal. What crime was violated? Can you name one?” Levin shot back.

“It’s not illegal. The question is whether Biden did something illegal.”

“The president didn’t do anything illegal,” he said.
