One top Democrat looking to challenge Donald Trump in 2020 has problems that are just getting started.
And one might be a career killing controversy.
That’s because this top Trump challenger was caught covering up a treasonous scandal.
The one scandal Joe Biden will likely survive is sexual misconduct.
He’s actually better off than Teddy Kennedy—who let his mistress drown in a car—and Bill Clinton who survived impeachment even with concrete evidence.
However, there is one Biden scandal the mainstream media is ignoring—and it is a treasonous one.
The real scandal Joe Biden is hiding right now is his past dealings with Ukraine.
Joe Biden’s younger son, Hunter, received millions of dollars from the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, while his father was Vice President.
In fact, Joe Biden was the main U.S. official who dealt with Ukraine during the Obama administration.
While Joe Biden was funneling $1.8 billion to Ukraine, his son was simultaneously getting paid millions of dollars by Burisma in monthly payments of $166,000.
These payments to Biden’s son were not due to his expertise on Russian-Ukrainian relations or for his acumen on energy policy—he holds neither.
Hunter Biden received this money because Vice President Biden threatened to withhold the $1.8 billion in US funding unless his son was paid—and paid well.
He even went so far as to demand the Ukrainian government fire its top prosecutor who was investigating Burisma Holdings and Biden’s involvement.
In fact, Joe Biden bragged about it in a speech given to the Council on Foreign Relations.
According to The Hill:
“In his own words, with video cameras rolling, Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden recalled telling Poroshenko.
“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time,” Biden told the Council on Foreign Relations event, insisting that President Obama was in on the threat.
Interviews with a half-dozen senior Ukrainian officials confirm Biden’s account, though they claim the pressure was applied over several months in late 2015 and early 2016, not just six hours of one dramatic day. Whatever the case, Poroshenko and Ukraine’s parliament obliged by ending Shokin’s tenure as prosecutor. Shokin was facing steep criticism in Ukraine, and among some U.S. officials, for not bringing enough corruption prosecutions when he was fired.”
But one important detail Biden left out was the involvement of his son and how those strong-arm tactics worked to his son’s advantage.
That is the real scandal.
And it is why Joe Biden should be disqualified from ever becoming President.
In fact, it should land Joe Biden behind bars.
