On Thursday, the prosecutor general of Ukraine told Bloomberg that there is no evidence that former Vice President Joe Biden or his son Hunter Biden committed any wrongdoing, following accusations made by President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani that the Bidens had a conflict of interest regarding Hunter’s role within a Ukrainian energy company, Axios reports.
Giuliani and other Republicans have recently been pushing a narrative that Biden tried to threaten to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loans from Ukraine unless the government didn’t remove its prosecutor general at the time, Viktor Shokin, who was reportedly leading an inquiry into an energy company affiliated with Hunter Biden.
But the current prosecutor general stated that neither Hunter nor the company were subjects of an investigation at the moment.
Giuliani recently boasted that he would make a trip to Ukraine in an attempt to obtain information about Biden and push an investigation into the Democratic presidential hopeful’s son.
“We’re not meddling in an election, we’re meddling in an investigation, which we have a right to do,” Giuliani said last week.
