On Sunday, Steve Hilton, of Fox News’ “The Next Revolution,” put out an open call for help from anyone who has specific information on “how much U.S. taxpayer money went to Burisma during the time that Hunter Biden was on the board and Joe Biden was in charge” of U.S.-Ukraine foreign policy.
President Trump tweeted out Hilton’s monologue that laid out a shocking litany of facts that are clearly known from the Biden-Ukraine-Burisma situation, after which the Fox News host called for a formal investigation and more information following the money trails.

Hilton has been hammering away for some time at the scandal he refers to as the “Bidens’ Cash for Gas, a nice little circle of cash and corruption.”
The host opened his program saying, “This week Joe and Hunter Biden were forced to address the scandal and it was pretty pathetic.” He then played a pair of video clips.
“Did I make a mistake based upon some unethical lapse? Absolutely not,” Hunter Biden said in an ABC News interview.
“My son did nothing wrong, I did nothing wrong,” Joe Biden said in a separate clip.
“Joe, your son was paid at least $50,000 a month to be on the board of Ukraine’s largest natural gas producer while you were running Ukraine foreign policy and pushing them to pump more gas,” an incredulous Hilton said. “We learned this week that a State Department official overseeing Ukraine policy raised concerns in early 2015 about Hunter Biden’s Burisma position and he was blown off by a Biden staffer. Joe Biden says he did nothing wrong.
“What? He met with Burisma board member Devon Archer in April 2014,” Hilton continued. “Two days later his son Hunter joined the company.”
“Burisma then paid $90,000 to lobbyist David Leiter who in that same period gave almost $60,000 to Democrats,” he added. “Among them, four donations to Sen. Ed Markey, three donations to Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, another three to Sen. Richard Blumenthal. All three Democrat senators pushed for U.S. taxpayer aid to Ukraine’s energy sector.”
The Fox News host continued: “And with Joe Biden supervising and later bragging about his ability to control the aid flows, the federal government paid it out. A nice little circle of cash and corruption. While Hunter Biden was on the board of Burisma, Joe Biden presided over three separate billion-dollar loan guarantees from U.S. taxpayers to Ukraine. Plus the Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014 sponsored by Senators Markey and Blumenthal which gave another $50 million towards Ukraine’s energy industry. And according to U.S. aid records, from 2014 to 2016 the United States gave roughly another billion dollars to Ukraine in foreign aid.”
It’s worth a pause here to digest those facts. Then to once more wonder and fume at what the Democrats are trying to present as a quid pro quo offense by President Trump.
“USAID was the agency handing out this cash,” Hilton said. “So of course Hunter Biden’s Burisma set about sucking up to them. Not that hard when your last name is Biden and your dad is running Ukraine policy.”
“So let’s get to the heart of this scandal,” Hilton implored.
“We need to know how much U.S. taxpayer money went to Burisma during the time that Hunter Biden was on the board and Joe Biden was in charge,” he added. “Maybe the answer is very little but it could also be in the billions. We don’t know and we need to know.”
“That’s why we need an investigation. And yes that’s why it has to involve the Ukraine government. We’ve started the process with a freedom of information request and of course we will update you on anything that we find but if there is anyone watching who can help get this information I hope they do so. We need to get to the bottom of the Biden Ukraine cash for gas scandal,” Hilton concluded.
