Friday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin discussed the recent hysteria over a phone call between President Donald Trump and the Ukrainian president is really just an effort to protect Joe Biden’s presidential candidacy.

During the opening segment of his radio show, Levin explained that there was nothing wrong or illegal with the reported contents of the call, during which Trump reportedly suggested Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky look into a possible corruption matter involving a gas company at which Biden’s son, Hunter, was a director, the Wall Street Journal reported.

“Why is this a big story?” Levin remarked about the phone call on air. “Because the Democrats and the media — one and the same — want it to be a big story.

“Why else?” the host continued. “They’re trying to inoculate Joe Biden, Joe Biden and his son Hunter from a massive scandal involving the Ukraine.”

What’s there to look into? Levin pointed to a lengthy April report from John Solomon at The Hill that details Hunter Biden’s ties to a Ukrainian gas company and Joe Biden’s involvement in the matter.

Solomon’s story points to an instance after Joe Biden left office where the former VP bragged about threatening the former Ukrainian president into firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was leading a corruption probe into the company that employed Hunter Biden as a board member.

In fact, Solomon’s report said the prosecutor that replaced the one Joe Biden got fired later started looking into the case and wanted to bring the case to U.S. Attorney General William Barr.

After delving into the facts laid out in Solomon’s story, Levin reiterated that the recent hype and hysteria over Trump’s phone call is clearly an effort “to immunize Joe Biden, should he be the nominee in a general election, from this issue being raised.”

“Hunter Biden made a fortune” from his dealings in the “Ukrainian matter” and Trump told the Ukrainian president that “they need to look into this,” Levin concluded. “Why is that a scandal? They ought to look into it.”
