Biden Campaign Tries to Suppress Trump Ads on Fox News

The campaign of former Vice President Joe Biden has been actively trying to convince Fox News not to run a campaign ad from President Donald Trump’s campaign, as per Politico.

Biden’s campaign manager Greg Schultz sent a letter to Lily Claffee, general counsel for Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, asking them to not run the “false” ad connecting Biden to the firing of Ukraine’s General Prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was purportedly investigating Biden’s son Hunter amidst his work with an energy company called Burisma Holdings.

Rejecting Biden’s request, a Fox News spokesperson said that “we are not in the business of censoring ads from candidates on either side of the aisle.”

The Biden campaign has made similar appeals to other networks, and CNN has already confirmed that it will not run the ad. Biden’s campaign had also previously pressured the major news networks not to interview Rudy Giuliani anymore, as the former Mayor of New York City has been further explaining the extent of Biden’s corruption in Ukraine.

Further evidence has emerged that Biden did indeed seek to remove Shokin due to his investigation of Burisma; Shokin has recently revealed that he was ordered to “back off” the Burisma investigation as General Prosecutor. A photograph has also emerged of Joe and Hunter Biden playing golf in 2014 with Devon Archer, a former Democratic strategist who joined the board of Burisma Holdings the same time Hunter did, which debunks Biden’s previous claims that he never discussed his son’s business dealings with Hunter.
