Senior correspondent busts open pro-Hunter Biden spin in CNN video sting

CNN’s senior justice correspondent pulled back the curtain on Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings which he said “smells bad” in an undercover video.

A new video released by Project Veritas on Tuesday showed Evan Perez talking with an undercover reporter about the former vice president’s son and his activities with foreign companies.

“Now, I’ll tell you this, Joe Biden has a problem,” Perez said to the undercover Project Veritas reporter. “His son was trading in his name. It looks bad, it smells bad.”

“It’s not illegal. There’s nothing is illegal about it,” he continued. “I mean, you’re benefiting from your father’s name. You’re trading his name.”

“Everybody does that, though,” the Project Veritas reporter said, going along with Perez’s claim that no laws were broken.

“That’s the problem,” Perez replied. “How do you go and say that Donald Trump is the person, get him out of here and convict him when your son is doing the same sh*t?”

Hunter Biden defended himself in his first televised interview since the accusations of corruption in his business dealings in China and Ukraine became the focus of criticism by President Trump and other Republicans slamming Democrats for their impeachment inquiry.

The son of the 2020 Democrat presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged his poor judgment in doing business with foreign-owned companies while his father served in Washington, D.C.

“In retrospect, look, I think that it was poor judgment on my part,” he said in the interview with ABC News.

“I think that it was poor judgment because I don’t believe now, when I look back on it — I know that there was — [I] did nothing wrong at all. However, was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is a swamp in many ways? Yeah,” he added.

“So I take full responsibility for that,” Biden continued. “Did I do anything improper? No, not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever. Did I make a mistake based upon some ethical lapse? Absolutely not.”

The Project Veritas video is part of its CNN expose aimed at revealing the network’s bias and follows Monday’s video which showed a CNN media coordinator saying the network’s president Jeff Zucker has a “personal vendetta” against the president.

Trump suggested the possibility of filing a lawsuit against CNN Zucker’s directive to focus solely on impeachment in their reporting.

Project Veritas followed Tuesday’s video of Perez with another look inside CNN, exposing how the network picks its favorites among the Democratic 2020 candidates.

CNN’s Media Coordinator Christian Sierra was seen in a video ahead of CNN’s hosting of Tuesday’s Democratic Presidential Primary Debate.

“Who does CNN like?” the undercover reporter asked.

“I think they like Warren a lot,” Sierra said.

“They seem to cover her up quite a bit,” the reporter said.

“Well, right now because she’s in second place,” Sierra replied.

On the question of whether any of the other candidates are treated unfairly by CNN, Sierra said it was the “lesser” contenders.

“Um, I think probably Yang and Klobuchar. One of the lesser ones,” Sierra said. “Just ’cause they’re going to talk about Biden more Warren and Sanders. They’re not going to mention others.”
