The New American: With President Trump cleared of “colluding” with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton, perhaps it’s time to look at another corruption case — this one involving likely 2020 presidential contender Joe Biden.
Writing in The Hill, investigative reporter John Solomon reminded readers that Biden threatened to withhold loan guarantees from Ukraine if its government did not fire a prosecutor who was investigating a company connected to Biden’s son.
The rerun of that news comes on top of four allegations that Biden, known as Creepy Joe, has been way too friendly with way too many women. But the latest revelation involves more than unwanted back rubs and Eskimo kisses.
Collusion, the false charge against Trump, doesn’t quite describe Biden’s activities. Bribery and extortion sound more like it. more …
Opinion: We wrote a post about this August 31, 2015, and have been wondering if the Burisma Holdings scandal would ever come up, or just fade away like all the others.
Hunter Biden was busted in July 2014 when Ashley Madison, a website that connects men and women for adulterous affairs, was hacked and hundreds of thousands of names were released.
Three months earlier on April 18, 2014, Burisma Holdings announced Hunter Biden’s appointment to its board of directors. The company was preparing to drill for shale.
Ironically in February 2012, the Obama Administration released a plan to close over a million acres of federal land for oil shale development citing the need for new rules and onerous regulation.
U.S. banking records show Hunter Biden’s American-based firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers into one of its accounts — usually more than $166,000 a month — from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when Vice President Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine and its tense relations with Russia.
So the Obama/Biden con was on. The administration that said it didn’t have even a ‘smidgen’ of scandal, roadblocked shale oil development at home, but lets the Biden clan profit from it in Ukraine.
And they call him Uncle Joe.
