    As to the 1st question, you cant be that politically blind. As to the 2nd question, that's what is being looked at.

    But you are against that, aren't you?

    It kind of did...

    The Treasury Department has granted a request from Senate Republicans for financial documents related to Hunter Biden’s relationship with a Ukrainian gas company,...

    What leverage did they get that they didn't have before? With links, please.

    I'm a Republican myself. Why would i hold it against Hunter Biden that he's a Democrat, like Trump and his family were for decades?
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    Which part? Can you copy it?

    And what business filings was a Ukrainian based company filing with our federal government?

    I am not going down the RINO road with you again, I haven't seen you vocally support GOP positions, so you can quit the farce. I have seen you undercut GOP policy repeatedly before Trump was elected, so....

    What leverage? Direct input from Hunter to Joe, should a matter arise that required a political solution or pressure from the US. Considering the price tag of foreign aid from the US, that could be substantial.

    The article is referring to those records, specifically.

    The president hasn't denied all requests for information. He has denied some - as has every administration. The previous administration was notorious for slow walking information to congress that could be potentially embarrassing. On the flip side, this House has also made some requests that have been a real reach.

    If someone is going to make a real case for hypocrisy here, they need to compare apples to apples.

    I was pointing out a pattern with this President, of which this seems to be indicative of more of the same (to some degree). However, I'm happy to accept your comment on the specificity here.

    Joe Biden did demand the prosecutor investigating Burisma be fired, so there is that.
    So what questions can Treasury answer? None that I can think of. Why don't we ask someone else who was on Burisma's board?

    Hunter Biden hired because of his name: Burisma board member

    WARSAW, Poland - Aleksander Kwasniewski, a former Polish president who is on the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, said Thursday that Hunter Biden was indeed chosen to join its advisory board because of his name. He said that is simply how the world of business works.

    But Kwasniewski insisted in an interview with The Associated Press that Biden was an active board member who helped the company and that he never used his relationship with his father, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, to further the company's interests.

    ...Kwasniewski also said Burisma members never tried to use Hunter Biden to curry favor with the administration of Barack Obama when Joe Biden was vice president.

    "He was a normal member of this group," he said. "We didn't ask him and he never said anything about his father."


    I encourage you to read the article. It should answer your questions regarding Hunter Biden and Burisma. And Trump.

    Joe Biden delivered a message from the President of the United States, the IMF, the EU, and some Republican Senators. So there is that.

    The prosecutor was also no longer investigating Burisma, so there is that too.
    So you were feigning ignorance? I absolutely answered the question about what Ukraine hoped to gain by hiring Biden.

    I'm not going to even try to search for job descriptions for Burisma's board, as that's a silly request. Seeing as Biden had neither experience with natural gas nor with Ukraine, and lived in the US, and didn't have any real board experience beyond family connected companies - it's pretty obvious that he wasn't recruited by Burisma for his experience. Hunter even admitted in an interview that he wouldn't have gotten the job if his father wasn't VP.

    I asked you a question and you didn't answer it.

    And you're not answering any other question either. You said he wasn't qualified for the job. It's up to you to back that statement up.

    Hunter Biden didn't have any experience in trains, either. Why did George W, Bush appoint him to the Board of Amtrak? Michelle Howard, retired Admiral of the US Navy, has no experience in the manufacturing of technology. Why did IBM appoint her to their Board last year?
