Swamp Watch: The Bidens and Ukraine
As President Trump is harassed with investigation inquiries, Joe and Hunter Biden continue to dodge an investigation of their own.
Joe Biden hit back at allegations over his son, Hunter, saying there was nothing corrupt about the firing of that Ukrainian prosecutor. But that is a total dodge.
The real scandal is not about the firing of the damn prosecutor!! — it’s about U.S. cash for Ukraine gas. It involves not just the Bidens, but former Secretary of State John Kerry and a growing number of Democratic senators as our special investigation will reveal.
These credible allegations of corruption must be investigated. Of course, President Trump is right to pursue them with Attorney General Barr, and yes, with the leader of the country where the alleged corruption took place. How can you investigate U.S. cash for Ukraine gas without involving Ukraine?
‘WHERE’S HUNTER?’ TRUMP ASKS, AS BIDEN’S SON PROMISES NOT TO WORK WITH FOREIGN COMPANIES IF FATHER WINS PRESIDENCY IN 2020
Preening news anchors ask Republicans as if they’ve come up with the ultimate unanswerable “gotcha.” If President Trump is so hot on corruption, can you name another American who is not a political rival that he has pushed to investigate?
Can you — to pick a name at random — NBC’s Chuck Todd — think of another American accused of corruption at this level, who’s not been investigated? The fact that Biden is running for president isn’t a reason not to investigate him. It’s surely the reason why the allegations must be investigated.
When it comes to Republicans, there’s never any reluctance to investigate.
Just this week, two of Rudy Giuliani’s associates were arrested for allegedly paying a man believed to be former Texas Republican member of Congress, Pete Sessions, $20,000 for his help in ousting our former ambassador to Ukraine who they thought was blocking their business aims.

Congressman Sessions wrote a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calling for the ambassador to be fired and the ambassador was eventually recalled.
Now, all of that looks dodgy as hell. And it’s quite right that Attorney General Barr has given the green light to arrest these two men, regardless of any connection to Rudy Giuliani or the president.
