He actually wants the Dems to impeach him, he sent a letter to peloisi to tell her to hold a vote or else he will not respond to subpoenas. This is done purposely so that when it goes to the Sentate the Republicans will expose the Democrats and subpoena Biden etc. It's pretty obvious what he is doing. Trump is playing multi level ahead of you and the media.

But you know what, Peloisi knows this and she will not hold a vote. She wants it in the limbo. That's what a smart person would do. It's only logical.

Beghazi investigation was done in the senate. They can't indict or prosecute only refer to the Justice Department which democrats control. So you are comparing apples to oranges.

However, this investigation is not in the House or Senate, this is in the Justice Department, so enjoy the show because it's going to be entirely different than you think.

An Ukrainian attorney general was investigating corruption involving Burisma and Hunter Biden.

Joe Biden threatened to withhold aide unless President of Ukraine at the time fired the AG who was investigating the corruption.



But according to multiple people, including the Deputy Prosecutor, the investigation into Burisma had been "Shelved" for quite sometime before Biden (along with the IMF, EU, US administration and many US Republicans) were demanding the ouster of the Prosecutor.

The Prosecutor was actually ousted for NOT investigating Burisma and many other corruption scandals.

And Burisma wasn't even the direct target of that investigation that was shelved, it's Oligarch owner was.

And there is no explanation of any way in which Hunter Biden might have been implicated in wrong-doing apart from being one of MANY people appointed to the board.

I think at this stage, if conservatives want facts to be known they should begin with facts rather than falsehoods.

Ok. I will listen to what armchair's experts like yourself have to say


I just hope you realize jingles like 'Drain the Swamp' is not something Donnie came up with himself and means absolutely nothing.

Back to the OP's topic, while unethical Biden did nothing illegal here. No one has shown any evidence to the contrary.

Unfortunately most replies on here ignored the OP's request and have made this thread tough to find anything of pertinent to the topic at hand.

nypost.com...



I don't know if he is lying, but he has lied before and recently which just affirms the man is corrupt.
Shokin claimed that the former US ambassador gave him a do-no-prosecute list, only to a couple months later admit that it was he himself who wrote the list and gave it to her for approval and she rebuffed him telling him that was not OK.

That said, in this case, you must first ask if Rudy Giuliani is lying, since you are basing the claim of what the untrustworthy Shokin said on Rudy's notes and Rudy himself seems Manic, Confused, Belligerent and wildly inconsistent if not outright dishonest and self-contradictory in what he has claimed.

So you have the statement of a known liar and disgraced official (Shoken) as recounted in the notes of an arguably crazy person (Rudy).

They are both welcome to testify under oath if they want to clear things up, but I don't think either is eager to that for obvious reasons.

Correct.

It is not a mystery. just researching news from a few years back shows the world calling for Shoken's ouster, including demonstrations on the street.

When still prosecutor general earlier this year, he claimed that US ambassador Marie Yovanovitch had given him a list of people not to prosecute. Although he later admitted there had been no such list,

www.telegraph.co.uk...



In an interview published by the Hill in late March, Lutsenko said that the then-U.S. ambassador to Ukraine handed him a list of names of officials and instructed him not to prosecute them. The claims created so much pressure around the ambassador that she was removed from her post early, according to the whistleblower complaint published on Thursday.

In March, the State Department denied the claims against Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and, in a statement given at the time to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, said it was intended to “tarnish” her reputation.

The next month, Lutsenko walked back his claim about the ambassador in an interview with the Ukrainian media.

foreignpolicy.com...



The State Department called Mr. Lutsenko’s claim about a do-not-prosecute list “an outright fabrication,” and in May Mr. Lutsenko walked back his allegations about the Bidens, stating that there was no evidence they had done anything wrong.

But government officials and Ukrainian anticorruption advocates counter that Shokin had hampered the investigation into Burisma long before Biden even stepped into the picture, according to The Wall Street Journal.

In other words, the available evidence suggests Biden was doing the opposite of what Trump and Giuliani are implying: He was trying to oust a prosecutor who was slow-walking corruption investigations. Moreover, the investigation into Burisma was largely dormant by the time Shokin was dismissed.

Links to this NYT article below, where Lutsenko says this:

“I do not want Ukraine to again be the subject of U.S. presidential elections,” Lutsenko said in an interview Tuesday in his office in Kiev. “Hunter Biden did not violate any Ukrainian laws -- at least as of now, we do not see any wrongdoing. A company can pay however much it wants to its board.” He said if there is a tax problem, it’s not in Ukraine."

No where in the article used for reference does he give a quote exonerating JOE Biden.

Shokin was asked to wind it down and close it, but refused.

It might have been stalled, like waiting on evidence or something. Real court cases don't go like on "Law and Order" TV show - over in 30 minutes.



The Prosecutor was actually ousted for NOT investigating Burisma and many other corruption scandals.


One of the reasons was he wasn't investigating members of the previous administration under Yanukovych.
He disagreed as to the merit and/or likelihood of getting any convictions.



And Burisma wasn't even the direct target of that investigation that was shelved, it's Oligarch owner was.


And you see a difference?

Please elaborate.



And there is no explanation of any way in which Hunter Biden might have been implicated in wrong-doing apart from being one of MANY people appointed to the board.


Hunter himself was probably innocent. But Burisma would have been pressuring him to call in a favor from his dad on their behalf. (That's why a company like that hires politically connected losers to sit on its board.)

If his dad doesn't intervene, Hunter gets the axe. No more 50k per month.

That is not true. The prosecutor appointed after Shokin was ok by Biden, so obviously he is bias and corrupt. Not to mention he drives a bently.

Shokin affidavit below says Biden fired him because he was going to interview Hunter in regards to Burisma and money laundering. You should be asking the real prosecutor for the case not a different prosecutor.

The NYT article you cited that states, "The State Department called Mr. Lutsenko’s claim about a do-not-prosecute list “an outright fabrication,” and in May Mr. Lutsenko walked back his allegations about the Bidens, stating that there was no evidence they had done anything wrong." Links to this NYT article below, where Lutsenko says this:

“I do not want Ukraine to again be the subject of U.S. presidential elections,” Lutsenko said in an interview Tuesday in his office in Kiev. “Hunter Biden did not violate any Ukrainian laws -- at least as of now, we do not see any wrongdoing. A company can pay however much it wants to its board.” He said if there is a tax problem, it’s not in Ukraine."

No where in the article used for reference does he give a quote exonerating JOE Biden.

Just to be sure we are on the same page here:

Lutsenko is not the guy who got fired by Biden.

Shokin is.

Let me explain. Biden's son was put on the board of a company in a country he had no experience in and in an industry which he had no experience in. He was paid over 3 million dollars by this company. An investigation into this company for corruption/fraud was started by their version of AG and quickly halted by the Ukrainian president. The investigation continued, hindered and from 3rd party angles. Then joe biden stepped in, demanded the prosecutor be fired or the US would withhold 1 billion dollars in loan guarantees. The prosecutor was then fired.

Now, before you run off crying that "trump withheld millions, etc..." realize that is A) whataboutism, not an actual rebuttal of the crime. B) incorrect as ukraine was unaware at the time of the conversation that the funds were being withheld and they had been on hold for a month prior to the call. Ukraine wasn't aware of the hold for a month after the call. So trump was not using it as leverage. C) withholding funds so they enforce the law or assist in law enforcement is a far cry from withholding funds to stop legitimate law enforcement.

The ukrainian government has been trying to get information to the US DoJ about the bidens and the 2016 election interference they participated in, but their emissaries were being thwarted by deep staters at the state department by having their visa requests denied. Then they hired a US lawyer to come pick up the documents and hand deliver them to the DoJ. This just happened and some of those documents were given to the state department IG who then relayed them to democrats last week in the "emergency meeting" that the democrats got so whip lashed on.
