White House Orders Fox News to Retract Reports on Biden Bribery Allegations

The White House is demanding that Fox News retract reports regarding the corruption and bribery allegations that have been made against Democrat President Joe Biden and his family.

According to CNN, Biden’s White House made the demand in a letter that it sent to Fox News’s leadership this week.

White House spokesperson Ian Sams wrote the letter.

The reports focus on allegations that the president and his son, Hunter Biden, took millions of dollars in bribes from foreign nations to peddle their influence in Washington D.C.

It has been alleged that while he was vice president, Biden pressured Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, who was investigating Burisma Holdings at the time.

Burisma was a notoriously corrupt Ukrainian energy company.

This all took place while Hunter Biden just happened to be on the company’s board, despite having no experience in the energy sector.

An FBI informant claimed that there was more to this story.

The informant claimed that both Joe Biden and Hunter Biden were each given $5 million in exchange for getting the prosecutor fired.

House Oversight and Judiciary Committee investigators followed up on the allegations by obtaining Biden family members’ bank records.

The bank records show millions of dollars flowing into Biden accounts from foreign nationals, including from Ukraine.

Now, however, this FBI informant’s information has become a target of Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ).

The informant, Alexander Smirnov, has just been indicted by the DOJ.

The DOJ claims that Smirnov was essentially working for the Russians when he made this claim – that he received the Biden bribery allegation from Russian intelligence personnel.

It is now being claimed by Biden’s DOJ that the allegation was made up.

In response, the White House now wants Fox to retract its reporting about the alleged bribery scheme.

In the letter, the White House chastised Fox for having “taken no steps to retract, correct, or update its reporting on this false allegation from 2023,” and it called upon Fox to withdraw this reporting.

Sams wrote:

“We feel strongly that all Fox News Digital articles on this topic should at a minimum be updated with editor’s notes informing readers that the source of this allegation has been federally indicted for making it up.

“We also feel strongly that Fox News Channel television personalities like Hannity and Watters, among others, should inform their viewers on air that they have been sharing a discredited allegation from a source who has been federally indicted for making it up.”

Fox has responded to this letter with its own statement, suggesting that there is no need to retract anything.

A Fox spokesperson said:

“Fox News Media has reported on all key developments since the announcement that Alexander Smirnov was charged with lying to the FBI, featuring the story prominently.

“We will continue to report on developments in all aspects of the ongoing investigations, hearings, and trials.”
