The Biden Scandal the Media Doesn't Want You to Know About
Teddy Kennedy let Mary Jo Kopechne drown in a submerged car after driving drunk. Federal prosecutors believe Bob Menendez had sex with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. Bill Clinton stood credibly accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick – among other scandals – and survived.
The allegations the former vice president bullied Ukraine – one of Europe's most corrupt countries – into paying his son, Hunter, millions are far more troublesome.
In February 2014, as Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula, then-President Obama appointed Biden as the administration's point of contact in Ukraine.
Biden then strong-armed Ukraine into firing Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin by threatening Ukranian President Petro Poroshenko that the Obama administration would withdraw $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees if he didn't immediately fire its top prosecutor.
Poroshenko had six hours to decide if he would give into Biden's demands or if his nation of 45 million would face insolvency. He begrudgingly compiled.
Unbeknownst to most, Shokin led a sweeping corruption probe into Burisma Holdings – a natural gas firm that employed Hunter Biden as a member of the board.
Michael Knowles, writing for the Daily Wire, has more:
Why is that? Is it because Hunter Biden is some expert on Ukrainian U.S. relations? No. Is it because Hunter Biden is an expert on Russian Ukrainian relations? No. Is it because Hunter Biden is an expert on energy policy? No. He got the money as a payoff crony deal because his father was threatening to withhold money from the Ukraine, until he got this sweetheart deal. Joe Biden actually basically bragged about this at the Council on Foreign Relations in December of 2015.
This is a real scandal. This is real corruption. This is a real reason that Joe Biden should not be president, also it's collusion. I guess it's Ukrainian collusion or is it Russian collusion - I don't know but it is collusion, and that's a real reason. Demagoguing and race hustling and saying that Mitt Romney wants to put black people back in chains - that's a reason that he shouldn't be president. The fact that he's a plagiarist which is why he had to drop out of the 1988 presidential race - that's a reason that he shouldn't be president. And the issue with the plagiarism being that Joe Biden is an empty suit he's a walking grin. He's a walking butterfly kiss. That's all he is. All good reasons to prevent Joe Biden from being president.
