Skip to comments.It’s fair to question Hunter Biden’s business dealings

Its appalling for President Trump to ask a foreign leader to investigate Joe Biden for alleged corruption.
Then again: What exactly was Bidens son, Hunter, doing in that foreign country and why was he hired to do it? Those are fair questions, which the media would never stop asking if the son under scrutiny happened to be Donald Trump Jr. But the Biden campaign is pushing back hard, with the now familiar cry that asking merely amplifies Trump talking points. Sorry, but I disagree.
Of course, Trump would love to turn Hunter Biden into Hillary Clintons e-mails. So, theres reasonable fear of giving too much oxygen to wild accusations. But you dont have to work for Fox News to see legitimate concerns over Hunter Bidens business dealings. In fact, you can read all about them in presumably friendly media outposts like The New Yorker and the New York Times.
On the narrow question of whether Joe Biden used his position as vice president to push for the ouster of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating a Ukrainian energy company that was paying Hunter Biden lots of money theres no credible evidence of that, several media investigations have concluded. But, as the Times ever so delicately put it, some State Department officials had expressed concern that Hunter Bidens work in Ukraine could complicate his fathers diplomacy there.
That but is a problem for Biden, even if its just an appearance problem. In the context of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, its a big gift to Senator Elizabeth Warren. Just last week, Bidens Democratic rival, who is surging in polls, said if shes elected president, she would champion a sweeping package to end government corruption as her first major piece of legislation. She specifically described Trump as corruption ..

(haven’t even LOOKED at the Glob in maybe 10 months - and this is as close as they can get, to reporting *some* of Biden’s concerns...)
Except for what Joe Biden himself said:
“On the narrow question of whether Joe Biden used his position as vice president to push for the ouster of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating a Ukrainian energy company that was paying Hunter Biden lots of money theres no credible evidence of that, several media investigations have concluded.”
I thought there was a video of Biden bragging about doing exactly that??
That’s it. Has anyone on the other side addressed this video?
See Post #3.
LOL! Nobody on the other side -- nor most even on our side! -- will ever admit to its existence.
Where are the GOP Senate committees demanding hearings? They would be if this were one of PDJT's son's.
All of this leads back to Ukrainian mafia operations, shell companies in Cyprus, and banks with fake accounts to clean the cash before staging it in Cyprus under fake names....then moving back to the US.
Tax-wise, Biden and his gang....along with the mafia folks...need a IRS review.
You should do stand-up!

How does this reporter know this is the case?
Ans: She doesn’t know. Her opening statement is not reporting, it’s repeating leftist talking points.
Ok, the political writer is likely surrounded by hardcore leftist reporters with sh*t for brains and she wants to write about why Biden and Son should be looked at so she starts with the line that Trump is appalling yada yada yada to throw the dogs off.
So I’ll give her that but she would do better packing up and getting the hell out of Boston and writing for a reasonable Midwest press outlet.
But I guess such run-down dilapidated nearly dead distributors of progressive feces like the Globe still hold a yesteryear allure for the ignorant newbies who aspire to be journalists.
Of maybe Joan has just caught hell from some emboldened Trump supporters who are coming out of the inner city woodwork, especially from Black Americans who appear to be swinging hard toward Trump.
Oh to see inner city Blacks and Latinos go for Trump would be a sight to behold, an event to remember.
One of the recently won special elections in NC that Trump campaigned shows a frightening flare for Democrats:
And with rumblings of Blue Minnesota going Red, a pattern appears to be emerging that voters are indeed walking away from the Democrat Party.
So Joan I hope your doublespeak is indicative of you experiencing the Storm. It will be good for your growth and character to witness liberal Boston spiral out in confusion as to what they’re all about. Hopefully, your confused writing about the Biden matter is a reflection of what’s going on in liberaldom dumb that surrounds you in Boston.
This is the third major paper today taking this tone over this issue
Ill give you one concrete example. I wasnot I, but it just happened to be that was the assignment I got. I got all the good ones. And so I got Ukraine. And I remember going over, convincing our team, our leaders toconvincing that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didnt.For months, Hannity has repeatedly played his recording of Biden saying those words. The MSM keeps pretending the recording does not exist. Today Hannity must have replayed the recording at least 20 times.
So they said they hadthey were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, Im not going toor, were not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. Youre not the president. The president saidI said, call him. (Laughter.) I said, Im telling you, youre not getting the billion dollars. I said, youre not getting the billion. Im going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: Im leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, youre not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.
One of Hannity's guests (John Solomon?) described his interview with the Ukrainian prosecutor who was fired. The prosecutor believes he was fired because he was investigating Hunter Biden.
Hunter Biden raked in even more unearned money from China than from Ukraine.
Great Hannity radio show today. He really drilled the video home. Very good Hannity show tonight on FOX also. I know a few folks have the wood for Hannity, (And full disclosure, I was one for a bit in the past), but Sean is a fighter and is 100000000% all in for our GREAT President Trump.
The money that Hunter Biden received was being laundered in three countries. This is something the illegal drug mob does, according to Rudy. Suppose father, Joe, was getting a cut in the action?
My prediction: This scandal should end Biden’s run for president.
This scandal should end Bidens run for president
I agree. Mark Levin was on fire. Giuliani masterfully laid the legal case. Sean’s questions to Vice President Pence got this comment:
“The ironic thing is is that everything that our critics in the media are leveling at the president from this phone call, and leveling at our administration, everything that Democrats on Capitol Hill are running off and describing — Vice President Joe Biden bragged about — which was a quid-pro-quo — withholding American aid in exchange for a specific action”
Tomorrow will be a further unwinding of the corruption and facts that should unleash a real backlash against the DemonRATs.
The snowball is rolling and is getting larger as it rolls down hill.
