As Democrats clamor to impeach President Donald Trump for allegedly pressuring Ukraine into probing the Biden family, Kiev’s top prosecutor announced that he will reopen the investigation.
Ukrainian Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka announced on Friday that he will review 15 high-profile corruption cases.
Among them is an investigation into the owner of energy firm Burisma, which paid former vice president Joe Biden’s son Hunter $50,000 per month to sit on its board for five years, despite his lack of qualifications in the field.
President Trump believes that Joe Biden wielded his political influence to land Hunter the job, using the promise of military aid to Ukraine as leverage.
In a July phone call to newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump suggested that he reopen a closed investigation into Burisma.
Democrats in Washington see the investigation differently. The US leader is pressuring his Ukrainian counterpart into smearing a front running 2020 candidate, now Democrats on Capitol Hill have clamored to impeach Trump.
Though lacking the formal support of a full vote in the House of Representatives, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has lumped together six committee probes into Trump to form an impeachment inquiry in all but name.
With impeachment drama dominating headlines, Biden has stayed relatively quiet about his own role in the affair. In this picture Hunter also seems to want a bite of the snack, while the Chinese bodyguard looks and hope the package does not contain poison.
The former Vice President running the Obama Administration has stated that he knew nothing of his son’s foreign business dealings, a statement contradicted by the emergence of a photograph showing Joe and Hunter Biden golfing with a Burisma executive in 2014.
