With reports from The Washington Post
After revealing that he talked with an Ukrainian leader about former Vice President Joe Biden, President Donald Trump made his fate more ominous as impeachment calls reached a surprising crescendo.
Trump’s admission came as his propagandists accuse Biden and his son Hunter of impropriety especially during the time that the 76 year old democrat occupied the White House as Vice President. Biden reportedly did some deals with several Ukrainians including the newly elected president of the former Soviet Russian state.
Biden and his group of Democrats are at a loss. Sensing deja vu of 2016, Democrats are unable to counter the searing accusations hurled against Biden which though factually deficient, actually fuelled several conspiracy theories swirling in the internet.
Washington post, in their reportage about this, stated that:
“Hunter Biden served for nearly five years on the board of Burisma, Ukraine’s largest private gas company, whose owner came under scrutiny by Ukrainian prosecutors for possible abuse of power and unlawful enrichment.
Hunter Biden was not accused of any wrongdoing in the investigation. As vice president, Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to fire the top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who Biden and other Western officials said was not sufficiently pursuing corruption cases. At the time, the investigation into Burisma was dormant, according to former Ukrainian and U.S. officials.
Trump has suggested that Biden improperly used his influence as vice president, and the president appeared to confirm on Sunday that he raised the matter in a July phone call with newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The Washington Post Fact Checker analyzed several of the claims from Trump and his allies in May and gave them three Pinocchios.”
