Then-Vice President Joe Biden approved an official statement in December 2015 about Hunter Biden’s position on a Ukrainian energy company’s board despite claims he was not involved with the family’s business, emails obtained from the National Archives show.

Now, if there was accurate voting, he would have been out of office anyway. We should work on that.
Tater Head Joe is on track to go down in history as the most corrupt politician in the nation’s history.
They are so slow... for the sake of the nation... get that family out of Washington!!! when did we last have a decent President who was not tarnished and corrupt!!!
Spot on. And yet the people of Delunaware can’t see it. Or they like liars and grifters.
That is why I won’t even talk to a leftist. My cousin and his wife are about the only ones I have any contact with and that’s infrequent. Thankfully they rarely bring up politics and when they do I respond as if they had not spoken a word.
