    Of course. That must be what happened. No need to provide any evidence, or even a link to some unknown conspiracy filled website. I'll just take your word for it.

    Transparency International thinks prosecutor general Yuiry Lutsenko is corrupt as hell. Not saying you're wrong, mind you, but the state of politics being what it is, especially when it comes to Ukraine / Russia, etc., one should take pronouncements such as this with a grain of salt and wait for the full story to emerge. Still too early. There's a reason Hunter Biden was available for this duty, and I believe there's more to this yet to emerge. "There's no evidence" statements are rarely definitive.

    Transparency International:
    Transparency International - Wikipedia
    According to the 2016 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report, Transparency International was number 9 of 100 in the Top Think Tanks Worldwide
    From 2104, Hunter Biden:
    His serial nepotistic jobs belie his father's regular-guy image: So where does a coke-abusing influence peddler go after raking in gobs of Daddy-enabled dough and abusing the U.S. Navy’s ill-considered generosity? Back to Cronyland! Hunter joined Ukrainian natural-gas company Burisma Holdings — owned by a powerful Russian government sympathizer who fled to Russia in February — this spring. The hypocritical lobbyist-bashers at the White House deny he will be lobbying and deny any conflict of interest.

    LOL. Except this whole conspiracy came from the guy who is now saying it's false:
    Bloomberg - Are you a robot?
    The letter, purportedly written by Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, said that Biden, while U.S. vice president, personally received income from a Ukrainian natural gas company in exchange for “lobbying activities and political support.”

    The lawmaker said those allegations were false.

    As Leshchenko explained it, the prosecutor was trying to hold onto his job in a new administration. The incoming Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, campaigned on a vow to fight corruption and has said he would name a new prosecutor general.

    “I can assume that Lutsenko’s plan is simple” -- that is, to build intrigue around Biden to show U.S. authorities that the prosecutor can be a useful partner, Leshchenko told reporters.

    Anyone on the Trump Administration who speaks the truth faces opprobrium if that truth does not match with a Trump fake conspiracy theory. Punished for speaking out against corruption. But, watch as the political race unfolds. This will be treated as if it is true. This is the Biden Uranium One.

    You don’t think the Ukraine would like to see Biden elected President, do you?

    I love threads that reveal how hypocritical our leftist friends on this board truly are

    they don't care about corruption
    they don't care about reckless government spending
    they don't care how politicians treat or talk about women
    they don't care about honesty from politicians

    as long as their people are in power.....

    Or supporters of Trump, who has been responsible for all of the above to an extent that would make everything that the Democrats have done pale into insignificance.

    Typical reaction from the left, ignore what your eyes and ears see and hear and attack the source. Yeah I hear Biden say it but because it is on a right wing source it didn't happen.

    Russia is now a right wing source? That sound you hear is Ronald Reagan spinning in his grave.
