Biden Refuses to Speak to Reporters Following Bombshell Report About Alleged Meeting With Burisma Executive

The Biden campaign called yet another press “lid” Wednesday morning following a bombshell report showing that former Vice President Joe Biden may have lied about meeting with an executive from Ukraine energy firm, Burisma Holdings, in 2015. . .

Feeling the heat, Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates hit back at the report in a statement, saying, “We have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”

But a prepared statement from the campaign is not quite the same as a candidate responding to reporter’s questions. Unfortunately, at least for the remainder of the day, press will be unable to get a direct response from Biden himself on the matter.

Daily Mail reporter Nikki Schwab posted part of a press release on Twitter late Wednesday morning, showing that while the Biden campaign had called a lid, the candidate would still be participating in a fundraiser later in the day.

“The Biden campaign has called a lid. Later this afternoon, Biden will participate in a virtual fundraiser. Your pooler will send a report at its conclusion,” the release said. “At 7 p.m., Biden is delivering pre-taped remarks to American Muslims at the Muslims Making Change: National Honors event. Those remarks are open press.”
