The Governor of Maryland Larry Hogan took a major dig at former President Donald Trump in a recent interview on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, with host Dana Bash.
Bash asked the Maryland governor about Donald Trump’s request to Russian President Vladimir Putin to turn over information on Hunter Biden’s business dealings. According to Hogan, Trump’s request was the “worst possible thing” that someone could do amidst the ongoing war in Ukraine.
“Unacceptable” to drag politics into the situation” -Hogan said on Sunday
On Tuesday last week, during an interview on Just The News, ex-president Donald Trump made a request to Vladimir Putin to reveal inside information on Hunter Biden’s business dealings with oligarchs of Russia. During the interview, Trump brought up a 2020 report by the Senate homeland security that claimed that a company linked to Hunter Biden received $3.5 million from the widow of Yury Luzhkov, the mayor of Moscow.
“She gave him $3.5 million, so now I would think Putin would know the answer to that,” Trump said. “I think he should release it. I think we should know that answer.” -Trump said last Tuesday. “I think Putin now would be willing to probably give that answer.” -he added.
In response to Trump’s request, Hogan said, “It doesn’t surprise me that Trump would make that statement,” and that it was “unacceptable” to drag politics into the situation. “It’s about the worst possible thing you can do when all these atrocities are taking place in Ukraine and Putin’s aggression is what the focus is.” “For a former president to try to drag politics into that is just completely unacceptable,” -he added.
A federal investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes is currently underway, though he has stated that he is “100 per cent certain” that he will be cleared of any wrongdoing.
Maryland governor believes Trump was involved in “stirring up the insurrection on January 6”
The CNN host also asked Larry Hogan whether he believed a federal judge’s ruling on Monday that Trump had “more likely than not” committed a felony in his attempt to obstruct congressional certification of Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential elections on January 6, 2021.
“I don’t know because I haven’t seen all the evidence whether he committed a crime, but I did see the ruling, and that was a major impact by that,” Hogan said, adding that he believes that the former president was involved in “stirring up the insurrection on January 6” at the Capitol Hill.
“Why did the mayor of Moscow’s wife give the Bidens $3.5 million dollars?”
In conversation with John Solomon and Amanda Head on the “Just the News” show on Real America’s Voice network on Tuesday last week, former President Donald Trump raised a question on why the Bidens were receiving money from the mayor of Moscow’s wife.
“One thing, while I’m on your show, as long as Putin now is not exactly a fan of our country, let him explain, where did — because Chris Wallace wouldn’t let me ask the question — why did the mayor of Moscow’s wife give the Bidens, both of them, $3.5 million dollars? That’s a lot of money,” Trump said last Tuesday.
The ex-president was referencing a 2020 report by the Senate homeland security that claimed one of Hunter Biden’s companies was paid $3.5 million dollars by Elena Baturina, widow of Yury Luzhkov, the mayor of Moscow.
Hunter Biden’s legal team has denied the allegations, stating that the claims are false and that the President’s son has “no interest” in the company that received the money from Elena Baturina.
