    So let me see if I understand the Democrats' position on this: Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in aid from Ukraine if Ukraine did not fire the prosecutor who was investigating the Ukrainian company that was paying Biden's drug-using, Navy-discharged-for-drug-use son Hunter $50K per month--and that's no big deal, nothing to see here. But, Donald Trump's request to Ukraine that Ukraine investigate the suspicious, apparently corrupt firing of that prosecutor is an impeachable offense!

    Can you imagine what Democrats would be saying if Trump had a troubled son, if that troubled son were hired by a Ukrainian company for the amazing salary of $50K per month (even though the son possessed no job skills that would justify such a salary), if a Ukrainian prosecutor began to investigate the company that was paying Trump's troubled son such an exorbitant salary, if Trump then threatened to withhold $1 billion in aid to Ukraine if the prosecutor weren't fired, and if Ukraine then fired the prosecutor? They would justifiably argue that this smelled to high heaven of corruption.

    So the Democrats want to impeach Trump because he wanted Ukraine to investigate what clearly appears to have been a case of corruption involving Joe Biden, his son, and the Ukrainian company, and the previous Ukrainian government that fired the prosecutor.

    The prosecutor was not at the time investigating the Ukrainian company.

    Hunter Biden did not ever go to the Naval Academy, thus he could not have been expelled from it.

    Hope that helps your confusion.

    Apparently it’s because the blob asked a foreign power to investigate the son of a political opponent in return for military aid.

    Adam Schiff, with the approval of the Hillary and her crime syndicate, cultivated this farce to turn Trump's fact-finding investigation into Russian Collusion into a fake move to impeach the president. Hillary is behind the Joe Biden revelations. Trump keeps talking about it and is falling into their trap.
    The problem with all of this is the Democrats are still up to their old tricks and everyone in Washington knows it.

    You are correct. Biden's son got a direct commission and was then discharged for using illegal drugs.

    Uh, no he did not. He asked Ukraine to investigate the case that involved Biden's son. Go read the transcript.

    Biden, on the other hand, extorted Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was investigating the company that was paying his loser son $50K per month. But you just don't care, do you? You don't care about corruption if it's done by Democrats.

    THAT is a LIE....

    The prosecutor was not investigating Burisma at the time of the loan guarantee being held back.... how many TIMES do ya'll have to be told such?

    It was USA policy, and the EU. UK. IMF and World bank's stance to remove the corrupt prosecutor,

    because he DID NOT investigate companies such as Burisma... and did not help the EU prosecutors, prosecute Burisma,

    years prior to Hunter's employment, when the Russian Puppet President hired Shokin as prosecutor.



    exactly how would it stop any investigation on any corrupt companies by hiring a new incorruptible prosecutor?

    There is so much corruption in the Imperial Capital, impeaching just Donny is akin to a drop in the bucket.

    It’s all rather laughable, but apparently duping Americans is just too easy.
