"They need to investigate this. They have no other alternative..."
A Ukrainian court forced the opening of an investigation into claims that former Vide President Joe Biden pressured the resignation of a special prosecutor in order to benefit his son Hunter Biden.

The Ukrainian State Bureau of Investigations confirmed the investigation into Biden's motivation to press for the 2016 dismissal of prosecutor general Viktor Shokin, according to a report from the Washington Post.
The investigation mirrors the demand made by President Donald Trump in an infamous call made with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The accusations of a "quid pro quo" with Zelensky led to the two impeachment charges that were issued against the president by the Democrat-led House of Representatives.
"They need to investigate this. They have no other alternative," said Shokin's lawyer Oleksandr Teleshetsky.
"They are required to do this by the decision of the court," he added. "If they don't, then they violate a whole string of procedural norms."
Shokin has claimed that his resignation was forced in order to prevent a probe into Burisma, an energy company that had appointed Hunter Biden as a board member in 2014.
Republicans in the US Senate have also opened an investigation into the claims of corruption against Biden and his son.

Media and Demwits will charge this is foreign interference in the election for Trump. QPQJ (or should it be QPQB - sounds better) will be toast without his primary opponents directly using this against him, they will silently thank Ukraine and blame Trump.
Impossible in Soros/Dem’s stronghold.
They can’t even put their own former president in prison. With Bidens it is laughable.
Zelensky is on the verge of disassociating with all things Soros.

Uncle Creepy is up to his plugs in dirty dealings.
Be a real shame if Pelosi and Kerrys poor kids got swept up in this witch-hunt. How are Democrat grifters supposed to get rich anymore?
Thanks for the ping.
It would be best if all we had to do was honor an extradition request for both Bidens and any other US nationals involved. Let the prosecutions be handled in Ukraine and any sentences served there as well. The value to Zelensky of proving his anti-corruption promises would be incalculable and the benefit to Trump of having it happen that way is substantial.
