The entire Democratic argument regarding Donald Trump’s impeachment hinges on the idea the the Biden family did nothing corrupt in Ukraine.
This latest impeachment fiasco began when an anonymous whistleblower filed a report stating that US President Trump made an inappropriate request of Ukraines’ new President Volodymyr Zelensky. The complaint states that Trump wanted Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine in exchange for the release of military aid to the tiny European nation. The aid, having already been approved by Congress, was allegedly being withheld inappropriately…at least according to the whistleblower.
Subsequent testimony in the case has revealed to the American people that the release of this aid was contingent upon Ukraine taking steps to curb the rampant corruption they faced. This means that, if President Trump was asking about a corrupt deal in Ukraine, he would have been well within the bounds of his authority to make such a request.
That’s why the Republicans have been insistent that Hunter Biden, son of Joe Biden and member of the board of directors of a Ukrainian natural gas company, testify before Congress.
It seems as though Hunter is preparing to do just that.
“Hunter is taking no chances, he knows that he could get called as a witness any day so he wants to be fully prepared, he’s going over every fine detail,” a source told the Daily Mailon Wednesday.
“He’s taking the trial very seriously and wants to make sure he’s ready for whatever the Republicans throw at him,” the source added.
Biden had no natural gas experience when he took the job at Burisma, where he earned a cool $50,000 per month, leading many to believe that nepotism may have had something to do with his hiring.
If this were to be proven, it would go a long way in bolstering the Trump team’s defense that the President was merely looking to root out corruption and not merely attack a political rival.
