News that the mainstream media will do its best to ignore:

Hunter Biden and his Ukrainian gas firm colleagues had multiple contacts with the Obama State Department during the 2016 election cycle, including one just a month before Vice President Joe Biden forced Ukraine to fire the prosecutor investigating his son’s company for corruption, newly released memos show.

During that February 2016 contact, a U.S. representative for Burisma Holdings sought a meeting with Undersecretary of State Catherine A. Novelli to discuss ending the corruption allegations against the Ukrainian firm where Hunter Biden worked as a board member, according to memos obtained under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. (I filed that suit this summer with the help of the public interest law firm the Southeastern Legal Foundation.)

Just three weeks before Burisma’s overture to State, Ukrainian authorities raided the home of the oligarch who owned the gas firm and employed Hunter Biden, a signal the long-running corruption probe was escalating in the middle of the U.S. presidential election.

Hunter Biden’s name, in fact, was specifically invoked by the Burisma representative as a reason the State Department should help, according to a series of email exchanges among U.S. officials trying to arrange the meeting. The subject line for the email exchanges read simply “Burisma.”

Go here to read the rest.  The corruption is obvious.  The Democrats wish to impeach Trump so this type of flagrant graft can continue.

  1. Joe Biden’s son — who has no known expertise in the fields of
    production, transport or distribution of natural gas, nor in the
    complexities of the legal and financial requirements of a Ukrainian
    gas company– was invited onto that company’s board and took
    home over $850,000 in the five years he “served”. It’s reasonable
    to wonder just what he brought to Burisma’s table, considering
    his utter lack of qualifications to justify such a salary… (eyeroll)

    Of course Hunter Biden was cashing in on his connection to
    his dad, the Vice President. And it seems Biden Sr. was happy
    to run interference for his son’s employers upon request.

    I’m not sure if Joe Biden is so accustomed to such corruption
    that he can’t see how anyone could object, or if he’s just
    convinced that laws do not apply to people such as himself and
    his family. Either way, none of our so-called “elites” in the DNC
    nor in the media seem too interested in calling him out. So, maybe
    “Quid Pro Joe” is right after all, and he and his family aren’t
    beholden to the same laws and expectations as the rest of us.

    I have to wonder if the folks who’ve promoted this Ukraine
    ‘scandal’ are looking for a twofer. Of course, gunning for
    President Trump is Goal #1. But maybe, by drawing attention to
    Biden’s blatant corruption, they’re also looking to derail his
    presidential campaign and give one of their other candidates
    a chance to shave away Biden’s lead in the polls? Of course, to
    make that work, they’d have to persuade the media to overcome
    their reluctance to say anything bad about a Democrat. And
    they’d have to persuade the left that one of their own, the #2
    man in the Obama administration, should be held to account.
    Not sure if the left cares about the law enough to make that a
    viable plan.

    I can remember only one Democrat the Washington Compost wanted to destroy and that was Marion Barry. Given that the brilliant people of the District of Columbia re elected Barry to political office after he served a six month jail term – a bunch of them went to Johnstown, Pennsylvania to cheer his release from prison – the Compost was unsuccessful.
