    I guess threatening to withhold money to stop an investigation is OK, but asking to start an investigation is not.

      That's the story anyway, but Ukraine state records show that he was actively and aggressively investigating Burisma.

        (Laughter.)

        I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. 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.

        He got a crooked Ukrainian company to give his son a job doing nothing, then had the gall to blackmail them into firing the prosecutor who was investigating it!
        Let's not forget that back in the 90s we entered into a treaty with the Ukraine (the Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters), when Bill Clinton was president, which calls for the exchange of evidence and information in criminal and related matters. The fact that Biden might decide to run for president (he wasn't exactly dropping a bunch of hints that he would during the time) doesn't make him immune from investigation. If it did then the entire collusion delusion fiasco that the left concocted about Trump couldn't have been investigated.

          Indeed. "staid and productive fact-finding work" would probably not be how most would describe it.

                You are playing the (very popular with Russkie loving Repubs) Russian disinformation game. We know what the Repub agenda is - the destruction of the Administrative State. It seems to be working with strong support from Trump, Putin, Barr, McConnell, Pompeo, etc.

                  What the heck are you even going on about? I did not mention Russia. I gave you a link to the actual video of Biden admitting his crime on camera, as I initially mentioned. I guess you have no actual response do now you just feel like trolling?

                    You are wrong. The only criminal in this story is Trump. And you definitely are, probably unwittingly, repeating Russian disinformation. You need to do some reading to catch up.

                          Must be. Biden would never make such a gaffe in public as to admitting to blackmailing a foreign country to protect his son.

                              No, I mean that you do not understand the context. You can easily read up on it if you want. Shokin was a corrupt prosecutor who took bribes from crooks.

                                ...which means Biden's quid pro quo was TOTally justified.
