That would be news to the New York Times’ Ken Vogel who said the story is a “significant liability for Joe Biden” and he chastised Rudy Giuliani and the president for making it partisan instead of letting the reporters do their job:
Here's @kenvogel of the New York Times saying on MSNBC that he views Joe Biden son's work in Ukraine as "a significant liability for Joe Biden."
"There is a story here," Vogel adds, saying "we're going to continue to, sort of, pull that back." (I'm sure Trump is very grateful!) pic.twitter.com/HSl90pk6Zn
