(TNS) A rather extensive piece published by POLITICO Magazine on Tuesday titled, “Waiting for Obama,” claims that the 2020 presidential campaign of former Vice President Joe Biden is privately wondering why his two-term running mate isn’t stepping up to publicly shield him from the Ukraine chain hanging heavily around his neck.

Because POLITICO is a solid member in good standing with the Democrat Party’s Left-wing propaganda media wing, the piece no doubt aims so spur Obama into action more than it’s innocently ‘asking’ why he’s not said much yet.
Biden world wants Obama to speak up on Ukraine:
“there’s frustration when Joe Biden and Hunter Biden get attacked by Republicans on the Ukrainian thing … and Obama doesn't say anything. The Biden people ask, ‘Why won’t Obama say something?’” https://t.co/ISpuvXPHLx

One person who is very close to both Obama and Biden said the only time the Biden campaign has been disappointed in Obama is over Trump’s Ukraine scandal. “I don’t think anybody in the Biden world challenges Obama’s affection for Biden, or challenges his strategy of not weighing in for anybody,” this person said.

”I do think there’s frustration when Joe Biden and Hunter Biden get attacked by Republicans on the Ukrainian thing and they say, ’Obama and his administration looked the other way back when this was happening,’ and Obama doesn’t say anything. The Biden people ask, ‘Why won’t Obama say something?’”
The larger question that POLITICO should be asking is: What can Obama possibly say to refute this brazen admission?
Also, is Lizza just tone deaf? Has he forgotten his own news outlet published some of the most damaging information regarding the Democrat Party, the Obama regime, and Hillary Clinton as it relates to their attempts to get Kiev to interfere in the 2016 election?
Ukraine attempted to sabotage Trump’s campaign but that the effort backfired:
Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.
A Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington in an effort to expose ties between Trump, top campaign aide Paul Manafort and Russia, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.
The Ukrainian efforts had an impact in the race, helping to force Manafort’s resignation and advancing the narrative that Trump’s campaign was deeply connected to Ukraine’s foe to the east, Russia.
The Ukrainian antipathy for Trump’s team — and alignment with Clinton’s — can be traced back to late 2013. That’s when the country’s president, Viktor Yanukovych, whom Manafort had been advising, abruptly backed out of a European Union pact linked to anti-corruption reforms. Instead, Yanukovych entered into a multibillion-dollar bailout agreement with Russia, sparking protests across Ukraine and prompting Yanukovych to flee the country to Russia under Putin’s protection.
In a column published by The Hill in August 2017 by Matthew Whitaker, then-executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) and who would go on to serve as Trump’s interim attorney general, took a closer look at those Clinton-Ukraine connections:
In a tweet last month, Trump said “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign — ‘quietly working to boost Clinton.’ So where is the investigation A.G.” It even prompted a Ukraine member of parliament, Andre Derkah, to send a letter last month to Ukraine’s prosecutor general requesting “that authorities launch a pretrial investigation into ‘illegal interference in the election of President of the United States organized by a criminal investigation.’” It also raised some very serious concerns for our organization, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT).
This month, FACT filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and its Ukrainian-American consultant, Alexandra Chalupa, for knowingly soliciting and accepting illegal, in-kind contributions from the Ukrainian government.
Specifically, the complaint contends that, last year, Ukrainian-American operative and DNC consultant, Alexandra Chalupa met with Ukrainian government officials to get information in an effort to expose ties between Trump, his former campaign manager Paul Manafort and Russia. As reported, a political officer in the Ukrainian Embassy was instructed to help Chalupa conduct research on connections between Trump, Manafort and Russia. The DNC subsequently acknowledged that it had knowledge of the research.
So what, precisely, should Obama say — that none of this happened? None of it’s true?
Well, Obama’s a pretty good liar so maybe that will work.
And then again, maybe it won’t.
