    You could very well be the first person to actually come out and state what it is that the Bidens are alleged to have done in Ukraine. So what did they do?

    We have no firsthand accounts to support the sad conspiracy theory that there was some kind of corruption happening with Hunter and Joe Biden in Ukraine. In fact, we don't even have an account by any conservative that says what this alleged corruption even is. Certainly no firsthand accounts.

    We have a mountain of proof of the following:

    1. The official view of the US government under Obama was that Ukraine wasn't doing enough to fight corruption
    2. The official decision of the US government was to condition aid on Ukraine's efforts at fighting corruption as a matter of national policy
    3. The official view of several western European governments was also that Ukraine wasn't doing enough to fight corruption
    4. Ukrainian anti-corruption activists officially concurred with these views
    5. Shokin was not pursuing corruption investigations, and in fact was actively refusing to cooperate in such investigations
    6. The investigation into Burisma went dormant under Shokin
    7. Hunter only joined the board of Burisma after the investigation had started

    None of these can be disputed. All of these would need to be disputed in order for you conspiracy theory to have any basis.

    There is zero evidence that the Bidens committed any crime in Ukraine, or even that they did anything unethical, and that so far not a single republican has pointed out what it is they are alleged to have done.
    You don't have a mountain of proof and is definitely disputable.
    I ask again, what did Ukraine find about the DNC and Chalupa and Hunter in their measures against corruption? And under what Ukraine administration were those measures taken?

    Standard denial crap.

    What evidence do you have that they found anything and why ask if you know instead of just presenting it? Hypocrisy much?

    Junior got the job offer because of pops position and pops bribed the prior administration to fire the guy who was said to be investigating junior's employer.
    The beauty part is that the investigation didn't even have to be active because Ukraine folded due to pop's bribe regardless.
    Tough call deciding which is worse.

    I didn't claim Ukraine investigated corruption already. The other guy claimed that. But I heard the same thing.

    I do know that someone named Chalupa working for the DNC was active in Ukraine to dig up dirt on Trump's campaign.

    On top of that it turns out, I believe, she's also a friend of Eric Ciaramella.
    Isn't that something? Oh what a tangled web they weave.

    This has nothing to do with necessity. It's all about putting on a show and keeping the names in front of the public. Republicans are nothing but a bunch of ****ing clowns.

    Any day now, right?

    Gotta wait for Barr to get back from Timbuktu.

    Trump heard lots of people saying that that is where Ukraine sent the DNC server racks to hide them.

    Disguised as a goat

    What he doesn't know is that those servers are hidden where he will never find them.

    In the salad.
