Biden's Ukraine Problem Isn't Going Away

• https://amgreatness.com, By Julie Kelly

The public is mostly unaware that a key motive behind the Democrats' impeachment effort was to criminalize any interest in the Biden family's shady dealings with the persistently corrupt country of Ukraine. As damaging news coverage of Hunter Biden's multimillion dollar gig with Burisma, the troubled Ukrainian energy company, escalated in the fall of 2019 and threatened to derail Joe Biden's third run for the presidency, the Biden campaign declared open season on journalists.

A Biden spokeswoman lashed out at the New York Times for publishing "malicious claims" about her boss and his son; the campaign warned social media companies not to run ads featuring the infamous clip of Biden bragging about trading U.S. foreign aid in exchange for the firing of a prosecutor investigating Burisma. The fervor quickly died down after Democrats successfully changed the subject, building an impeachment case against President Trump that portrayed his brief mention of the Bidens during a phone call with the Ukrainian president as "election interference."
