Who’re you gonna believe? Not the clown who’s been a politician for more than 40 years!

We really need term limits for members of Congress.

“Former Ukrainian prosecutor-general Viktor Shokin has alleged he was pushed out by Joe Biden's delaying of a $1 billion loan to the country, to prevent him from investigating Hunter Biden's role at Burisma. But, Joe Biden said he pushed for Shokin's dismissal to encourage Ukraine's anti-corruption efforts.”

From link above.

In my mind there is little doubt about H. Biden's presence on the board of Burisma or the fact that indeed his father interfered in the internal politics of another nation.

But this story is based on events that as I recall played out during Presidency of P. Porschenko a number of years ago. It is old news being repackaged. The dog days of summer have already started!

This is not a new attempt at bribing.

I appreciate you clarifying this AvHdB. I’m just not willing to let it go.

I believe we can see that the Obama regime was exceptionally corrupt and interfered not only with Democracy in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria but also in Ukraine.

With out doubt as one learns and understands more about the Obama regime, it was beyond corrupt. Evil is perhaps a better word because everything was masked behind a 'higher' moral facade.
