Former President Donald Trump brought up Hunter Biden during an interview with Just the News on Tuesday, saying Russian President Vladimir Putin should release any information he has on Biden’s business dealings with Eastern European oligarchs.
In an interview with Just the News’ “Real America’s Voice,” Trump said a 2020 Senate report revealed Yelena Baturina, the wife of Moscow’s mayor at the time, gave $3.5 million a decade ago to a company co-founded by President Joe Biden’s son.
“She gave him $3.5 million, so now I would think Putin would know the answer to that,” the former president said at Mar-a-Lago in Florida. “I think he should release it. I think we should know that answer.”
A Delaware grand jury has recently been investigating Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings for potential tax violations, lobbying issues, and money laundering.
Biden acknowledged his tax matters were under federal investigation in December 2020, adding he was “confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately.”
Trump also said he would like to know more about Biden’s relationship with Nikolai Zlochevsky — a Ukrainian oligarch and the owner of Burisma Holdings energy company.
Biden sat on Burisma’s board and was paid millions for his services, according to Tass. His position seemingly created a conflict of interest for his father, who oversaw U.S.-Ukraine policy as vice president at the time.
Senior State Department officials were warned in a January memo that Biden’s Ukrainian business affairs had undercut U.S. anticorruption policies, according to Just the News.
Trump said he tried to call attention to Hunter Biden’s coziness with oligarchs during the 2020 election, but former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace shut him down.
“How is it that the mayor of Moscow, his wife gave the Biden family $3.5 million?” Trump said. “I think Putin now would be willing to probably give that answer. I’m sure he knows.”
In addition to calling on Putin to disclose information about Hunter Biden’s business relationships, Trump said he deserves credit for NATO’s improved financial status.
“I’m the best thing that ever happened to NATO, because I made them pay,” he said. “So, NATO has plenty of money now.”
Trump also said he dealt with Putin more severely than Democrats have by blocking his Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline to Europe and imposing sanctions on Moscow.
“And, by the way, I’m the one who brought up Nord Stream 2,” Trump continued, adding, “I’m the one that blocked it. I terminated it. They weren’t going to have it. He [Joe Biden] then opened it.”
“And then they say, He’s so nice to Russia,” Trump continued. “I’m the one that put the biggest sanctions on Russia.”

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
