“Did the Biden Campaign know this expose was coming?” Investigative Journalist Geraldo Rivera asked after Joe Biden’s presidential campaign “had a commercial out all ready” to go immediately after The New York Times published an expose on President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

In his Tuesday Twitter video, Rivera says he’s suspicious of the timing of both the expose and Biden’s campaign commercials leveraging it:

“It does not seem to spell out any crimes. It was obviously months in the making and yet it was released the just day before the 2020 debate.”

“Are the Biden Campaign and The New York Times in cahoots? I think you’ve got to ask that question, because this is lightning-fast work on behalf of Joe Biden – he had a commercial out all ready, it was all ready to go. Did the Biden Campaign know that this expose was coming? That’s what I’d like to know.”



Rivera also said it’s important for Americans to know whether someone from the IRS gave The New York Times Trump’s personal tax information. Nonetheless, “It does not appear to me that the New York Times story is going to change any minds,” Rivera said.

“And, I don’t know what the point of it was. What’s the point of the story?” Rivera asks, offering two possibilities:

“Is it that Donald Trump is a bad businessman who loses money? Or was it that he’s a slick businessman who takes greedy advantage of the obsolete tax code?”

Rivera mocked The Times for trying to scandalize Trump’s successful television career:

“It also says, today’s paper I found particularly amusing, it says that Donald Trump made hundreds of millions pretending to be a successful businessman on television.

“Pretending? On a reality show? Go figure; stop the presses.”

“I repeat that this will not change any minds,” Rivera concluded.
