The Democrats commented on Trump's allegations that Ukraine intervened in the 2016 elections and allegations of corruption against the Bidens.

In a revealing exchange with Kent, Goldman asked about the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Secretary's career about Trump's allegations regarding interference in the elections in Ukraine.

"Do you know that there is a factual basis to support the claim that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 elections?" Goldman asked.

"To my knowledge, there is no factual basis, no," said Kent.

"And indeed, who meddled in the 2016 elections?" Goldman said.

"I think it's pretty clear that Russian interference in the 2016 election cycle was at the center of the interference," Kent said.

Goldman then focused on Trump's claims about Biden. In particular, the president and his allies have accused Biden of dismissing Ukraine's top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, in an investigation by Burisma, whose executive committee hired Hunter Biden.

These allegations "against Biden, asked Goldman Kent."

"Not at all," said Kent.

"When Vice President Biden acted in Ukraine, did he act in accordance with official US policy? "Goldman squeezed."

"He did it," Kent replied.

This exchange between Kent and Goldman was critical because it blew Trump's claim that he was entitled to look back on the 2016 election and ask Ukraine should examine the bidens.
