The Democrats are in trouble and they know it. A court in Ukraine has ruled that there must be an investigation into Joe Biden’s role in the firing of Viktor Shokin, the country’s top prosecutor who was investigating Burisma and Hunter Biden.
The Democrats might be able to slow down the investigations in the Senate, but they are powerless to stop the one about to go underway in Ukraine.
Maria Yovanovitch is no longer the ambassador to Ukraine, so she can no longer bring pressure to bear. And the Ukrainians understand that President Trump will win reelection and they do not want to upset him since they are dependent on his aid.
This could dash all hopes for a Biden victory in August. (His words not mine) Or it could prompt Democrats to take the nomination away from Biden to someone who has a better chance of winning like SpongeBob SquarePants or possibly Joe Piscopo.
Because of the court’s decision, top law enforcement must investigate the matter. They did not name Biden in the report, they just referred to him as an American citizen.
Ukraine’s State Bureau of Investigations confirmed that the Eastern European country had launched an inquiry into Joe Biden.
According to the Post, the case does not explicitly refer to Biden by name. It refers to Biden only as a U.S. citizen.
In October 2019, Ukrainian prosecutor general Ruslan Ryaboshapka announced that the Eastern European country would audit all previous cases linked to Burisma.
While his father was in charge of U.S. policy towards Ukraine as the former VP, Hunter began serving on Burisma’s board of directors despite having no experience in energy matters, prompting allegations that he was using his father’s position for financial gain.
Echoing the intelligence community “whistleblower” complaint that triggered Trump’s impeachment, Democrats seeking to remove the U.S. president argued that on July 25 the American commander-in-chief made a quid pro quo offer to Zelensky to launch an investigation into the former vice president and his son in exchange for American military aid.
Ukraine, Trump, and some impeachment probe witnesses denied the allegation.
