President Donald Trump promoted a video clip on Friday night that implied House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) son, Paul Pelosi, might have been involved in a Ukrainian corruption scandal similar to the allegations facing former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

The video was featured in a tweet from a random Twitter account that stated: “@oann exposes those DemocRATS & their Ukraine ties Joe & Hunter & Nancy & Paul; seems like it’s a Family Affair What’s going on here ? Pay attention to 1:13 in this video as it has been removed from social media”

Trump retweeted the video, writing, “Wow Crazy Nancy, what’s going on? This is big stuff!”

The insinuation that Paul Pelosi may have been involved in corruption in Ukraine has not been verified.


Transcript of the video:

As the Ukraine scandal backfires on the Biden family, the Pelosis maybe the next to come under scrutiny. An old promotional video resurfaced on Thursday, more than six years after it was uploaded by an energy company that does business in Ukraine. The video starts out with Nancy Pelosi speaking about her efforts [in office] to push for clean energy. Her message is followed by a promotional statement from her son Paul, who is a board member of Viscoil and an executive at its related company, NRGLab.

Just two years after this video was uploaded, Pelosi led a congressional delegation to Ukraine to discuss issues like energy security, and her son traveled as recently as 2017 on behalf of the Corporate Governance Initiative where he now serves as executive director. While the official reason given for his visit was to discuss a youth soccer partnership program with the Ukrainian government, clips of that trip are now reportedly being removed from online. One of those clips was saved by The American Mirror on Twitter, with the caption: “What’s really going on here?”

This comes as Hunter Biden faces similar allegations that he used his father’s position to make lucrative business deals in Ukraine and China.

Numerous fact check organizations, including Snopes, Politifact, and have all cast doubts on the allegations, which has been floating around on the internet for a while.

Here’s Trump’s tweet promoting the video:

Trump’s promotion of the video, which appears to be sketchy at best, comes after he has taunted Pelosi numerous times in recent days as she continues to withhold articles of impeachment from the Senate.

On Thursday, Trump tweeted: “Nancy Pelosi’s District in California has rapidly become one of the worst anywhere in the U.S. when it come to the homeless & crime. It has gotten so bad, so fast – she has lost total control and, along with her equally incompetent governor, Gavin Newsom, it is a very sad sight!”

Trump added, “California leads the nation, by far, in both the number of homeless people, and the percentage increase in the homeless population – two terrible stats. Crazy Nancy should focus on that in her very down district, and helping her incompetent governor with the big homeless problem!”

Trump continued, “Why should Crazy Nancy Pelosi, just because she has a slight majority in the House, be allowed to Impeach the President of the United States? Got ZERO Republican votes, there was no crime, the call with Ukraine was perfect, with ‘no pressure.’ She said it must be ‘bipartisan & overwhelming,’ but this Scam Impeachment was neither. Also, very unfair with no Due Process, proper representation, or witnesses. Now Pelosi is demanding everything the Republicans weren’t allowed to have in the House. Dems want to run majority Republican Senate. Hypocrites!”
