While the mainstream media, many now Bernie Sanders supporters, waffle on and on about inappropriate touching and behavior, let us not forget that then Vice President Joe Biden created a hostile work environment for a number of female Secret Service agents as he continued to swim naked in both the Vice President's pool and his residence pool. It was an open secret that the Biden detail was the second worst Secret Service assignment -- the first being assigned to the Hillary Clinton detail. But, even worse, is the possibility that Joe Biden was as corrupt as Hillary Clinton when it came to using her official office for personal gain. So forget the creepy behavior and look deeper!!!
Even though Joe Biden likes to portray himself as Joe Six-Pack, the common man, he is a corrupt poseur with a vicious streak and downright scary temper.
Been there, done that …
What does this amusing distraction actually hide?
That Joe Biden, while former President Obama’s Vice President, is like Hillary Clinton and may have inappropriately interfered in foreign affairs for personal profit…
According to John Solomon of The Hill, then-Vice President Biden strong armed Ukraine into firing its chief prosecutor who, at the time, was investigating a company that employed Biden’s son, Hunter. Biden himself confesses to the strong arming part. Indeed, in 2018 he boasted about it:
Like Obama once said: “Nobody messes with Joe.”
It seems very strange, though, that an American Vice President would issue the kind of ultimatum Biden delivered — fire a prosecutor within six hours or lose $1 billion in loan guarantees — over an internal matter — a shortage of corruption prosecutions. Has the U.S. ever intervened in this fashion to remedy defects in a nation’s criminal justice system?
It’s particularly odd that a Vice President would make such a threat to an ally that was under siege from Russia. The loss of $1 billion in loan guarantees would have been a huge blow to Ukraine and a boon to Russia, given the state of relations between the two countries.
The other explanation for Biden’s ultimatum is that Shokin, whatever corruption he might not have been investigating, was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings, a firm that employed Hunter Biden as a board member.
According to Solomon:
The ouster of Shokin and his replacement by someone “solid at the time” pretty much let Burisma off the hook, says Solomon. Only after Biden made his boast did the “solid” prosecutor revisit the matter. Now that same prosecutor says he has information he’d like to present to Attorney General William Barr.
Did Biden know about the Burisma probe and his son’s role in the matter? There can be no genuine doubt that Biden knew about his son’s role. His office was quoted in a New York Times article as acknowledging Hunter Biden’s role in Burisma. The article appeared four months before Biden forced Shokin out. That same article discussed the Burisma case.
Moreover, Biden would not have demanded Shokin’s ouster without having some knowledge about the prosecutor’s job performance — knowledge that inevitably would come, in large part, from our diplomatic mission to Ukraine. According to Solomon, the U.S. Embassy in Kiev that coordinated Biden’s work in the country repeatedly and publicly discussed the general prosecutor’s case against Burisma.
Thus, we seem to have a genuine Joe Biden scandal here.
Solomon suggests the following questions for Biden:
The last of these questions answers itself.
How could this have escaped the attention of President Obama, Valerie Jarrett, all of the national security advisors – and, of course, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?
Biden's record of political achievements indicates he was wrong on most every issue and did little or nothing as the Vice President of the United States. Perhaps we need to see the tax returns of candidate Biden and those of his family -- who were known to have close ties with foreign hostile powers. Various media reports of Biden's drinking and anger issues are also troublesome, if true. But, what I wonder is, what did Obama and Clinton know and when did they know it?
We are so screwed.
