ELECTION/JOE BIDEN/MEDIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/UKRAINE: “Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is urging Fox News not to run a Trump 2020 campaign advertisement it claims ‘spreads false, definitively debunked conspiracy theories.’ In a letter to Fox News and Fox Business general counsel Lily Claffee, Biden campaign manager Greg Schultz wrote that the ad ‘falsely states’ that ‘Biden offered Ukraine $1 billion to fire the prosecutor investigating a company affiliated with his son.’ There is no evidence to support the claim that the former vice president intervened in Ukraine to benefit his son, who was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company. The Obama administration — along with Republicans senators, the International Monetary Fund, Western governments and Ukrainian reformers — were concerned at the time that then-prosecutor general Victor Shokin wasn’t aggressively fighting corruption.”
