Donald Trump has long fantasized about alleged money flows from Ukraine to Hunter Biden. Most recently, he repeated the claims – in the middle of the war. The White House now answered clearly.

The White House slammed Donald Trump’s request for Russian President Vladimir Putin to provide potentially damaging material about US President Joe Biden’s son on Wednesday, saying the request was made at an inopportune moment given the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

Reporters questioned White House spokeswoman Kate Bedingfield about former President Joe Biden’s comments on the “Just the News” TV show, which sparked unfounded doubts about Hunter Biden’s previous business connections in Russia. According to Trump, “Putin, I think, would know the answer. I think he should release it.”

His remark came as Western nations tried to persuade Putin to cease his five-week attack on Ukraine, Europe’s largest conflict since World War II. Russia refers to its efforts as a “special military operation” in the region.

“What kind of American, let alone an ex-president, thinks that this is the right time to enter into a scheme with Vladimir Putin and brag about his connections to Vladimir Putin? There is only one, and it’s Donald Trump,” Bedingfield said.

Trump’s comments come after a federal judge declared that attempting to overturn his election defeat on Jan. 6, 2021, was “more likely than not” a criminal, and his business is still under investigation.

Trump lauded Putin as a “genius” during the military buildup immediately prior to the invasion of Ukraine. He described the attack as “appalling” as soon as it began.

In an interview excerpt aired on Tuesday by conservative US platform Real America’s Voice, Trump claimed without evidence that Hunter Biden received money from Elena Baturina, wife of the late Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov. Biden denies this.

The Republican ex-president also demanded information about Hunter Biden’s connections to Ukrainian oligarch Nikolai Zlochevsky, the owner of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, on whose board Hunter Biden sat for a time when his father was US vice president.

The statement comes at an explosive time

The House of Representatives even launched an impeachment trial against Trump in 2019 for trying to get Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to disclose allegedly compromising information about Hunter Biden. Trump had claimed that Joe Biden obtained the sacking of a Ukrainian prosecutor to protect Burisma from corruption charges. The impeachment process against Trump ultimately failed in the Senate.

Trump’s comments come at a sensitive time after Biden has called the Russian president a “war criminal” over Moscow’s attack on Ukraine. Another statement by Biden that Putin “cannot stay in power” caused further irritation on the Russian side. Biden had recently defended the statements. “I make no apologies for my personal feelings,” said the US President.

Trump’s long-running pursuit of information about Hunter Biden that could be politically damaging to Joe Biden resulted in the first of his two impeachments, over what presidential aides described as a campaign to withhold nearly $400 million in military aid and a White House visit unless Ukrainian officials announced investigations into Biden.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails,” Trump said during his 2016 presidential campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton, implying that Russian hackers could assist in the search for Clinton emails.
