    2020 front-runner Joe Biden's Ukrainian corruption scandal, explained

    2020 front-runner Joe Biden's Ukrainian corruption scandal, explained
    .
    Former Vice President Joe Biden officially launched his 2020 run for the White House on Thursday. He formally announced his bid for the Democratic nomination in a video released on social media.
    .
    This week on Glenn Beck's "2020 Candidate Profile" series, Glenn looked beyond former Vice President Joe Biden's troubles with touchiness, and did a deep-dive into the Democratic presidential candidate's alleged dirty dealings in the Ukraine.
    .
    After crediting journalists John Solomon and Peter Schweizer for their investigative fact-finding, Glenn launched into a detailed explanation of how Biden steered billions of dollars in aid to the Ukraine, while his son, Hunter Biden, raked in millions through a deal with a Ukrainian energy company.
    .
    "This blurs the ethical line so much that you can't even make out the line anymore. What Hunter Biden did may be technically legal, but it is grotesque. And the vice president should never have allowed this on his watch," Glenn said. "This is as bad as anything the Clintons have done."

    New Details Emerge About Connection Of Bidens To Ukrainian Corruption Scandal
    .
    In a report highlighted by President Trump Wednesday, The New York Times provides new details that have emerged about Hunter Biden’s connection to a Ukrainian political corruption scandal as the government has reopened an investigation into a company which once paid Hunter as much as $50,000 a month. That company, Burisma Holdings, was being targeted by Ukraine’s top prosecutor — a prosecutor Hunter’s father, Vice President Joe Biden, pressured the Ukrainian government to remove.
    .
    Trump promoted the Times’ report by retweeting a post by co-author Kenneth P. Vogel: “NEW: The BIDENS are entangled in a Ukrainian corruption scandal:@JoeBiden pushed Ukraine to fire a prosecutor seen as corrupt,” tweeted Vogel, linking to his report. “BUT the prosecutor had opened a case into a company that was paying HUNTER BIDEN. The Bidens say they never discussed it.”
    .
    As vice president, Joe Biden played a key role in the dismissal of a Ukrainian prosecutor who had opened an investigation of a company employing Mr. Biden’s son.
    .
    In what the Times describes as one of Biden’s “most memorable performances,” the then-vice president went to Kiev in March 2016 and “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the country’s top prosecutor [Yuriy Lutsenko], who had been accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office and among the political elite.”
    .
    Biden’s pressure tactic was a success; the Ukrainian Parliament soon removed Lutsenko. But, it turns out, Biden’s son may have benefited significantly by his father’s actions.
    .
    “Among those who had a stake in the outcome was Hunter Biden, Mr. Biden’s younger son, who at the time was on the board of an energy company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch who had been in the sights of the fired prosecutor general,” Vogel reports.
    .
    While Hunter Biden had some significant credentials, including a law degree from Yale and having served on the boards of Amtrak and a few nonprofit organizations and think tanks, he “lacked any experience in Ukraine and just months earlier had been discharged from the Navy Reserve after testing positive for cocaine,” Vogel notes. Despite his lack of relevant experience and drug problem, Burisma Holdings paid him “as much as $50,000 per month in some months for his work for the company.”
    .
    The Bidens have denied any wrongdoing and Joe Biden insists he never discussed the matter with his son, but the reopening of the investigation into Burisma has put the spotlight once again on the corruption scandal and the Bidens’ connection to it. The new information that has come to light, the Times reports, shows “how Hunter Biden and his American business partners were part of a broad effort by Burisma to bring in well-connected Democrats during a period when the company was facing investigations backed not just by domestic Ukrainian forces but by officials in the Obama administration.”
    .
    Hunter Biden denies having any role in shielding Burisma, whose board he was a member of from spring of 2014 until last month. “I have had no role whatsoever in relation to any investigation of Burisma, or any of its officers,” he told the Times in a statement Wednesday. “I explicitly limited my role to focus on corporate governance best practices to facilitate Burisma’s desire to expand globally.” (Read the full report here.)
    .
    As The Daily Wire reported in late March, Peter Schweizer, Government Accountability Institute president and author of bestselling book “Clinton Cash,” calls attention to the Bidens’ problematic Ukrainian involvement in his new investigative book, “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.” Schweizer appeared on Fox News to summarize some of the book’s key findings.

    Americans Will Be ‘Shocked’ to Know What Biden’s Son Was Up To
    .
    STEPHANOPOULOS: Good morning, lets start where Chairman Schiff just left off right there that perhaps Congress should consider making it illegal to engage foreign governments, foreign assistance in campaigns. You agree?
    .
    PAUL: Well I think the American people will be shocked and dismayed to know that Joe Biden’s son was making $50,000 a month just a couple of months after he was dishonorably discharged from the military for drugs. $50,000 a month, I think most Americans will be dismayed that the president’s son was doing this while Joe Biden was actually lobbying to have this company, you know, go free of prosecution. My understanding, this was reported in the New York Times, Joe Biden was asking the prosecutor to lay off of the company that Hunter Biden was working for for $50,000 a month –
    .
    STEPHANOPOULOS: That’s – that’s not – that’s –
    .
    PAUL: — kicked out of the military, that’s extraordinary.
    .
    STEPHANOPOULOS: That’s not what – that’s not what was reported, in fact he was on an anti-corruption drive.
    .
    PAUL: Well actually that’s exactly what was reported, yes, that he got $50,000 a month right after he was kicked out of the military. That’s exactly true and nobody disputes that.
    .
    STEPHANOPOULOS: That’s very separate from what you just said about what the vice president was saying right there.

    His son Beau served with honor in Iraq including being awarded a Bronze Star and Distinguished Service Medal before succumbing to brain cancer. He had an actual and distinguished military career.

    The other brother you referred to was "awarded" a direct commission to Naval service after being granted both an age and a drug waiver. He attended a two week indoctrination course instead of participating in a normal ascension training program and one month after commissioning he popped positive for cocaine and separated from service. The nature of his discharge has not been made public.

    He also found it necessary to date and then marry his deceased brothers widow soon after his tragic death from cancer and after two years together they announced their divorce just weeks ago.

    It's not a stretch to say that this son's deal making in both China and Ukraine, and none of his bizarre personal issues, may be the unraveling of his father once the debates and campaigns start drawing blood on debate stages and in the media.

    Joe Biden's recent weirdly disconnected statements on China have no basis in reality and his connections to China and his soft stance on our most aggressive and exploitive economic and military foe is so out of step that it's impossible to ignore.

    Biden is the DNC's best hope in 2020 and he might poll well considering his current competition but his political baggage will get heavier and heavier. With his long history of gaffs and political missteps, it'll be a heavy lift to get an old, white, guy who's been accused of stuff that his base abhors (allegedly2020 front-runner Joe Biden's Ukrainian corruption scandal, explained) and that also flies in the face of their "diversity" message, over the goal line. He's going to get the 2016 Bernie treatment as soon as he screws up and he definitely will.

    So what about Biden's comments in post #3, where he brags about pulling the money (Blackmail) from Ukraine, if the prosecutor looking into his son's illegal dealings there isn't fired, which we soon learn, was fired and the two Bidens skip hand in hand merrily down the road.
    .
    That at the time, I think would have been grounds for a criminal indictment against Joe Biden as well as his son.
    .
    By the way, I wouldn't think Biden was STUPID ENOUGH to go on video and brag about it.
    .
    Will sure be interesting to see how this blows up in the debates.
    .
    I'll bring the beer & popcorn.
