UPDATE: Don Surber, We spy on our president? seems to be saying that this whole thing could have been primarily a hit job on Biden to ensure that Warren gets the nomination. Surber is very shrewd and I'd would never idly disagree with him on such matters--so I won't:
Well, well, well, the much trumpeted whistle-blower scandal promoted by the Washington Post and the New York Times turns out to be an attempt to bring Joe Biden's cocaine-addled son to justice.
Last year, Biden bragged that as vice president, he put the arm on Ukraine not to prosecute Hunter Biden in a bribery scandal.
The son received $600,000 a year from Burisma Holdings, Ukraine gas company, for a no show job.
Ukrainian prosecutors were investigating the company's bribery.
Biden stepped in to stop it.
He said last year, "I remember going over (to Ukraine), convincing our team … that we should be providing for loan guarantees. … And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from (then Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko) and from (then-Prime Minister Arseniy) Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor (Shokin). And they didn’t…
"They were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, … we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, ‘You have no authority. You’re not the president.’ … I said, call him. I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. … I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time."
That is corruption.
Biden should be prosecuted for using his public office for private gain. The fact that he was so casual about it -- bragging about it -- shows this was a common occurrence for him and Obama. The fact that the media did not blow this up into a Covington Catholic MAGA Cap scandal shows the media is in on the scam.
The Daily Beast reported, "An explosive whistle blower complaint that is threatening to paralyze much of Washington, D.C., now may upend the 2020 presidential campaign."
Sure, just like the Times allegation five days ago led to the impeachment of Justice Kavanaugh.
Prediction: This will fade, and then Warren will use this against Biden. She is tenacious and she wants to win.
But the real scandal is that this "whistle blower" as the press hailed him was spying on our president.
