It has been a little over two weeks since Nancy Pelosi announced the House would conduct an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump. No matter what tactic the White House Administration take, the Ukraine controversy is not going away.
On the Wednesday broadcast of Fox News’ Hannity, the host and Eric Trump found a new person to blame for the scandal. The duo wondered why Barack Obama was not being blamed for the “rampant” corruption in the Ukraine.
Hannity said to the President’s son, “I think there is a very big reason that Obama is being quiet, because all of this abuse of power, all of this corruption, all happened on his watch.”

Trump responded, “There is no question it leads right to him. And by the way, it’s not exactly like, you know, he’s a quiet guy. And he has run away from this. He has run away from his vice president. Could you imagine if the roles were reversed, right, and this was Mike Pence, right? I mean they would be killing my father right now.”
The President’s son continued to blast the 44th President for his “hypocrisy.” Eric Trump continued, “I mean, Joe Biden was his vice president. Where is Obama? What does he think about this rampant corruption?”
Barack Obama has stayed noticeably quiet on all the scandals that have occurred in the Trump White House. He may be back in the public eye soon, though. His former adviser Valerie Jarrett has said that Obama is will be involved in the 2020 election.
