For Biden, An Appearance Of Conflict In Ukraine | On Assignment with Richard Engel | MSNBC 1


In 2014, Joe Biden became the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine, tasked with cleaning up its corrupt politics. Shortly thereafter his son Hunter was made a board member of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy firm under investigation by the country's prosecutor general for tax evasion. Hunter Biden was never found to have broken any Ukrainian laws, but President Trump has seized on the appearance of a conflict. Aired on 10/18/19.

  1. Great another thirty years of failed policies from politicians.

  2. Turn off your Cable TV!

  3. Garbage news

    We want Rachel Maddow to have this piece on her show.

  5. Biden openly admitted on video that he forced the Ukraine to fire the prosecutor investigation his son’s company or they wouldn’t get the one and a half Billion Dollars from the US taxpayer…that sounds really bad to me.

    • You are seriously confused.

    • JC X prove me wrong or are you a bot ……..

      @Gouge Master Media defends Biden and you are repeating/believing what that same media told you as if they would tell you otherwise. Even if what you said was true, bidens son was on the board before, during, and after Biden did what he did. And he did it as VP. You’re trying to squirm them out of it because its your side.

    • @I’m Your President I’m glad you ignore the 4 Repub Senators that were along with Biden at the time. That proves you are a nothing but a partisan hack.

    • @I’m Your President and Trumps rhetoric has you repeating/ believing whatever he says. Even if the Bidens are guilty of something, Trump still has committed ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ and admitted to them. No one else’s issues excuses him.

  6. The Bidens should be in jail!

    Funny: this happened 3yrs ago and nothing was reported? Now they try to say Biden withheld money to get a prosecutor to investigate yet HIS SON being on the board had every power to demand a self investigation and also common sense tells us if Biden wanted a better investigation and demanded that investigator be fired than WHY WASN’T a new investigation started till Trump pushed it? But what you ask yourself is? Why is MSN clearly misreporting and covering (poorly) this up? Pathetic

    • NBC is just as fake and bias as CNN, the Today Show proves that every morning

    • @Earl Delsanto You do realize, after repubs wasted $20 million on Benghazi, they ended up with nothing.

    • @CrimsonTide You have no clue weather that is true or not. What we do know is ole quid pro joe got caught bribing Ukraine into firing their prosecutor looking into a company who was being investigated for corruption. His son jussst sooo happened to be on the board of. You know a total coincidence. 😀

    • @Nervjiggy You’re either stupid or willfully ignorant. It’s easy to go back in research what was going on. The GOP Senators are on record at the time pushing for the Ukrainian prosecutor to be fired for NOT going after corruption.

    • Johnny McMerica | October 19, 2019 at 12:32 PM | Reply

      Biden, along with Republicans and the entire Western intelligence community wanted the Ukrainian prosecutor fired because he was part of the corruption in Ukraine at the time and wasn’t investigating corruption. Biden and everyone else wanted him gone – that’s why it wasn’t a huge story at the time and why it’s a non-issue now.

    If it smells like crap it probably is. Hunter Biden on the board smells like crap, and it is.

    • @NJboi Eddy G
      “I didn’t do anything wrong “
      Says HB and you Believe😂🤣😂🤣
      Quid pro Joe
      If you don’t fire him you’re not getting 1 billion JB

      Now go play more video games

    • NJboi Eddy G oh please you need to stop watching fake news CNN MSNBC CBS…do your own research

    • yes the real reasearch that shows that the timeline of events ionts to the bidens being innocnet of basically everythingbut nepotism which isnt illegal in this case

    • @Yingyanglord1
      Quid pro joe

  9. Funny how the media and democrats are trying to say Trump did a quid pro quo for asking Ukraine to look into a matter that Biden publicly bragged about doing and was previously covered by the media. That is NOT digging for dirt against your political opponent (which Biden truly isn’t at this point since he is not the nominee or a clear favorite). If Trump was asking for new information on Biden, it would make more sense. All of this is nothing but drama to get more money to the media and politicians. Democrats are trying to get more money for the DNC by appearing as if they are going to impeach Trump when they know that they won’t come close to doing it.

  10. I think the media needs to be held accountable for being biased. The media acts as if Democrats are angels and Republicans are evil. That’s why I, and most of my friends and family, have stopped watching mainstream news.
    If you can’t be true journalists at least be open about being an opinionated, biased commentator.
    The news outlet that acts like they’re getting back to being fair will get my support. Other than that I’m going the way of most of the intelligent people and stopping viewing. I can find actual facts by researching for myself.

      resigned liberal Because the same people who want power own the news as well.

    • @ProjectVeritas report on CNN says it all. If Zucker is doing it you know they’re ALL doing it. They are driven by HATE.

    • Big Tasty Reporting on the outrageous things Trump says, the lies he tells and the corrupt and illegal things he does is not hate.

    • @katwil89 Please come out of that bubble. Hate, lies and bias is what draws the clicks and the MSM know it and have been doing it since day one!
      The weak minded are easily influenced by the constant daily barrage of misinformation and lies. Just ask yourself…How much have they’ve gotten wrong in 3 years? It’s a weekly occurence that they have to retract or change or apologize for when it comes to this administration. Never in my lifetime have I’ve seen such blatant bias within the media and it’s all because they want to control everything you think, hear and read…. Whether it be true or not.
      The numbers all speak for themselves…Trump will go down as one of the greatest presidents of all time who has done more for the people of America than any other president.

    Quit trying to make Biden happen. We don’t want him.

    Throw away. Return to sender. Pass go do not collect $200. Bye Felicia!

      It’s about moving forward and not staying in the status quo.

      If Biden wins the primary then Trump will win.

    • @latiolaisgradnigo If anyone other than Biden wins the primary then the Dems lose. Biden is the only candidate that can win the moderate swing states. The only states that matter under our electoral college system. Popular votes from the coasts don’t matter. California and the east coast far left liberal base means nothing in the swing states.

      @CrimsonTide I agree with you 100 % . Republicans and Trump are doing to Biden what was done to Hillary. The investigation into Burisma actually took place and found no criminality.

    • @Barbara Rigell Exactly. And if people want to trash someone for getting a leg up in life because of their last name…then that’s a WHOLE bunch of people that are “corrupt”. Bottom line is that they could find nothing on Biden so they went digging and found something on his son to exploit and smear him with. They need something since there is no email-gate.

      @CrimsonTide 👍

  12. Thieves protecting thieves . They are all in on it .

  13. MSNBC feels which way the wind is blowing but still hedging.

    MSNBC YOU are LIARS … HOW do you sleep knowing that you are misleading millions of AMERICAN PEOPLE.?! your spin is EPIC! LOL!

  15. regular donkey | October 19, 2019 at 9:23 AM | Reply

    Just don’t mention his China ties for 30 years..

  16. Double-standard. If this were Trump Jr., imagine CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NY Times, Washington Post.

  17. “We are going too cure corruption, by bribing and blackmailing their officials”… Both Parties.

  18. The Obama White House was corrupt
    Plain & simple,

  19. Almost perfect except the last line: Trump and his lawyer tell a different story??? Kudos to MSNBC for this thorough accurate account of Biden corruption in the Ukraine. Keep it up and I promise to never call you conspiracy network again.

    • I know, right? They go through the story step by step showing Biden and his son’s questionable connections only to conclude (due to one person’s opinion) that Trump is making false accusations. I was like, “WOW! is this really MSNBC”, until the very end, which was an extremely abrupt turnaround.

  20. Good job on covering this topic after trump brought it up and so out in the open that you had to Cover it. Corrupt media
