State Department reported Burisma paid bribe while Hunter Biden served on board, memos show
State, DOJ officials reported to FBI concerns Ukraine gas firm made bribe to local prosecutors while under corruption investigation.
Just eight months after Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter joined the board of Burisma Holdings, U.S. officials in Kiev developed evidence that the Ukrainian gas company may have paid a $7 million bribe to the local prosecutors investigating the firm for corruption, according to interviews and State Department memos.
State officials believed the alleged bribe was paid between May and December 2014 and got confirmation from one prosecutor. They argued the bribe amounted to a "gross miscarriage of justice that undermined months of US assistance" to fight corruption in Ukraine, contemporaneous memos show.

Who cares that Biden's entire family got rich from their connections, with zero skills to have earned the money?
And in Hunter Biden's case, badly interfering with important foreign policy.
How can Ukraine eliminate corruption when Hunter Biden sits on the board of a corrupt company?
Rotsa ruck cleaning that company up.
The Biden Family Business: Corruption
Enriching himself and family members is the only business experience he has had in his long, corrupt career.
George Neumayr by GEORGE NEUMAYR
Excerpted with permission from George Neumayr’s The Biden Deception: Moderate, Opportunist, or the Democrats’ Crypto-Socialist?, which is published today by Regnery Publishing.
During his long senatorial career, Joe Biden cast himself as an everyman, “Amtrak Joe,” known for taking the train daily to Washington, D.C., from his home in Delaware. The image he sought to create was one of a simple legislator independent of the usual corrupting influences pols face.
In truth, Joe Biden knows those influences all too well. He heads up a family of wealthy lobbyists and political operatives who have spent decades trading on his last name.
In Profiles in Corruption, Peter Schweizer points out that the Biden family’s wealth “depends on Joe Biden’s political influence and involves no less than five family members: Joe’s son Hunter, daughter Ashley, brothers James and Frank, and sister Valerie.”

Biden Calls for Gun Control Can Lose Him Pennsylvania
A knife-wielding man shot by police in Lancaster: riot ensues.

Joe Biden just can’t seem to get it — and it may cost him the battleground state of Pennsylvania.
.....And Joe Biden’s response to the Compton shooting? The Democratic nominee tweeted,
Weapons of war have no place in our communities.
We need to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
Well aside from the glaringly obvious point that someone willing to kill two sheriff’s deputies in broad daylight will not obey any gun laws — and used a handgun — the Lancaster attacker had no gun at all but rather a good-sized knife. There is no word about whether Biden will now be proposing knife control.

Joe Biden often says ridiculous things. His penchant for losing his train of thought or flying into a sputtering mess has become legendary at this point. I’ve written so many times about it that I sometimes struggle to cover the latest examples.
But then his brain goes and crashes in such a way that I just can’t ignore it. Today was one of those days. You try to figure out what the heck this is.

I vote on principles, moonbat. Trump will go down as a great president
I have many times.
Well, when joe replied he did say he was watching old Mickey Mouse Club Shows and wanted to sniff Annette Funicello’s hair.
The federal government mandates that millions of Americans submit to drug screenings to qualify for certain types of positions. This includes members of the military and other employees of the Department of Defense. Yet 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden — a man who wants the voters to elect him Commander in Chief — called President Trump a fool on Monday for suggesting that they both submit to just a such a test before their first debate. Biden has responded equally defensively to requests that he produce a recent cognitive acuity test. This will inevitably cause voters to wonder what he’s hiding.
At least one Times columnist quite literally opined that he would prefer a cognitively impaired President Biden to the hated President Trump.
The Democrats and the corporate media scoff at Trump’s drug test challenge as if it isn’t to be taken seriously. They dismiss it as if the president is merely trolling Biden. In reality, however, he is asking a serious question to which the voters deserve a serious answer. In the unlikely event that Biden somehow wins in November, he will have access to the nation’s nuclear launch codes. Does anyone reading this believe this is a good idea after witnessing his incoherent maunderings and erratic behavior? The most recent medical report we have on him was released last year, and it omits any serious assessment of his mental or emotional capacity to handle the office he seeks.
The president of the United States wields a level of power equaling the wildest fantasies of the most megalomaniacal Roman emperor, including a Praetorian Guard. In addition to commanding the most powerful military force on the planet, he will preside over the largest and most sophisticated state police apparatus in human history. He will have the alarming power to order drone strikes on anyone anywhere on the planet. Yet the media won’t discuss whether Biden’s age has affected his physical and mental fitness to serve. They weren’t always so reticent, as the New York Times clearly demonstrated after the 1984 Reagan–Mondale debate in Louisville, Kentucky:
The President seemed to lose his way in Louisville, got his figures mixed up, and didn’t seem to be mentally alert in dealing with Mr. Mondale’s arguments. This is being attributed by some to his advancing years.… What Louisville did was not to expose his age, which everybody knew, but to expose his mind, which the voters didn’t know. This is what has been covered up in the last four years by his amiable personality, and his superb reading of speeches from invisible mirrors, written and contrived by the best public-relations team ever to enter the White House.
I defy any reader to find an opinion piece in the Times that discusses Biden’s “advancing years” in such terms. Despite utterances so incoherent that — had they been expressed by any Republican official at any level — would have led the Gray Lady’s editors to call for his immediate withdrawal from public life, our erstwhile vice president gets a pass. Indeed, they behave as if merely raising such questions about him is a dirty trick. At least one Times columnist quite literally opined that he would prefer a cognitively impaired President Biden to the hated President Trump. I’m not kidding.
