Democrats Impeachment Proceedings Hold Spotlight on 2020 Candidate Joe Biden

The Democrat-directed impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump has cast a harsher light on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunters dealings in Ukraine, prompting Senate Republicans to request detailed records from the federal government.

As the House Intelligence Committee wrapped up the public impeachment hearings on Nov. 21, Senate Republicans sent another set of records requests to acquire information into the Obama administrations meetings and decisions related to Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that paid Hunter Biden tens of thousands of dollars a month to serve on its board.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) on Nov. 21, sent a letter to the National Archives requesting records of January 2016 White House meetings with senior Ukrainian officials. The senators cite events detailed in an April 25 article by investigative reporter John Solomon, who quoted firsthand witnesses, including Ukrainian officials, who attended the White House meeting and were encouraged to reopen an investigation into the Trump campaign and halt an investigation into Burisma.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), also requested records from the State Department regarding all contact in 2016 between Biden, former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, and their relevant office staff, including all communications and documents.

Graham also requested information about March 2, 2016, meeting between former Secretary of State John Kerry and Devon Archer, Hunter Bidens business partner. The meeting took place weeks after Ukrainian authorities seized the assets of Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of Burisma. Archer and Hunter Biden were on the board of directors of Burisma at the time of the seizure.

James Morrow Contributor to Sky News spoke with Host Peta Credlin on Nov. 21 and commented that during the inquiry he saw how many of the U.S. mainstream media outlets jumped the gun while presenting the inquiry resulting in misinformation being spread around the world.

“A lot of the press in the United States—certainly I would say its no secret—is really gunning for the President, that they want to see this impeachment push succeed,” said Marrow. “So what was fascinating, looking at it and watching it all play out, was [that] at one point CNN had been running a strap that said Sondland had said there was a quid pro quo, while he was actually saying there was not a quid pro quo over the aid to Ukraine.”

“They were so desperate to get him, and in fact later on after all of those first headlines made headlines around the world, then, later on, he was questioned by a Republican from Ohio—I am not sure if we have clip—but he said Did anybody ever tell you that you had to do this for that to happen and he said No. So theres a whole Read More – Source
