Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck said this on BlazeTV on Thursday (at the 33:54 mark of this video):
Kolomoyskyi’s company Burisma was implicated in a money-laundering ring. Hunter Biden then, knowing this, goes to work for him a few weeks later. The State Department then lifts a travel ban because Joe Biden asks for it. And then a few months after that, Vice President Biden and John Kerry lobby for 1.8 billion dollars to be delivered directly into his bank, and that just goes poof.
I’m interested in the part in bold. This is a reference to the State Department’s 2015 decision to grant a US Visa to Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky, ending an entry ban he had been under for several years.
My question is, is Beck right that then-Vice President Joe Biden asked the State Department to do this?
