The conclusion of the A Block segment on MediaBuzz on Fox News was distinguished by a heated exchange between Howard Kurtz and Clay Travis regarding the existence of concrete evidence implicating President Joe Biden in an illegal operation.
Sunday, Kurtz gathered Travis and Leslie Marshall to discuss recent developments in the Hunter Biden investigation. Attorney General Merrick Garland’s decision to grant Attorney David Weiss the authority of a special counsel to investigate the activities of the president’s son prompted this discussion. According to Travis, there were multiple credible allegations implicating Joe Biden in significant wrongdoing.
The argument presented by Outkick’s creator was as follows:
“My theory is when Joe Biden got passed over for Hillary Clinton, I think he knew that his political career — believed that his political career — was over and basically said, ‘let’s turn on the money spigot.
It’s time for me to really cash in on my career, because I’m probably not going to have a career going forward politically. Let’s start making money.’
Look, Tony Bobulinski, 10 percent for the big guy. The text message, the WhatsApp message from Hunter Biden threatening his Chinese business partners that if he didn’t get paid immediately, there would be hell to pay while saying he was sitting next to his dad.
The 20 calls, as you mentioned. The Burisma prosecutor being fired. The Russian oligarch paid three and a half million dollars left off any list of impropriety there.
There is tons of evidence that the Biden Department of Justice has covered up — Look at the testimony under oath of the two IRS agents. All of that is very credible.”
Kurtz made numerous attempts to intervene throughout the program, citing time constraints as his justification. Upon Travis’s reappearance, Kurtz stated unequivocally that there is no longer any evidence to support the claim that President Biden has received monetary compensation.
“I just want to make the point — and I’m glad you said yours was a theory — that there’s no evidence, despite some claims, that money actually went to Joe Biden. If there is, I think his campaign is over.”
However, Travis disagreed with the aforementioned statement and immediately rejoined the conversation.
“Hold on!” Travis shot back. “The evidence is there! It’s not corroborated. I just laid out the evidence, and it’s pretty credible.”
“Well, I’ll be happy to spend the whole show on it when it’s corroborated,” Kurtz exclaimed as the show went to a commercial.
In an effort to persuade prosecutors to terminate the Burisma Holdings investigation, a prominent Republican released a ‘damaging’ photo of Vice President Joe Biden with a Hunter-affiliated assistant aboard Air Force Two as they traveled to Ukraine.
Congresswoman Elise Stefanik disapproved of a photo taken on December 6, 2015, featuring the former Vice President and Biden’s current special presidential coordinator, Amos Hochstein.
Hochstein reportedly maintained contact with Hunter’s connections within the Ukrainian energy business Burisma Holdings while Hunter served on its board of directors.
If their chief prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, was not dismissed, Biden threatened to suspend $1 billion in US funding. Three months after his December 2015 trip to Ukraine, he was dismissed.
Hochstein continues to work for the Biden administration. Consistently, he warned that Hunter’s membership on the Burisma board would give rise to claims of a conflict of interest, according to a 2020 report by the Republican-controlled Senate.
2020 emails indicate that Vadym Pozharskyi, a board advisor for Burisma, may have spoken with Hochstein.
Pozharskyi explained to Hochstein’s office how the Ukrainian tax code would impact the energy industry, in which they played a significant role.
In the image, Hochstein is shown advising Biden. Stefanik claims that this demonstrates the “Biden Administration not only knew of Hunter Biden’s corrupt foreign business dealings, but also that Joe Biden was intimately involved.”
In a statement to Fox News, Stefanik said: “This damning picture of then Vice President Joe Biden on Air Force Two en route to Ukraine talking with Amos Hochstein is just further evidence that Biden and senior officials in the Biden Administration not only knew of Hunter Biden’s corrupt foreign business dealings, but also that Joe Biden was intimately involved while Vice President.”
“At the time of this photo, Hochstein was in communication with Hunter Biden and Burisma where Hunter served on the board,” Stefanik explained.
Current White House staffer Amos Hochstein was in communication with Hunter and Burisma while working for then-VP Joe Biden.

“We also know that this photo was taken on Air Force Two ahead of Joe Biden’s now infamous meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, where Biden threatened to have aid withheld if a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma was not fired”
“All evidence points directly to Joe Biden being deeply compromised.”
“House Republicans will leave no stone unturned in our investigations into Biden’s involvement in his family’s influence peddling scheme.”
