Backfire: Star Witness Drops the Reason Schiff Won’t Allow Republicans to Question Hunter Biden [ICYMI]


Backfire: Star Witness Drops the Reason Schiff Won’t Allow Republicans to Question Hunter Biden [ICYMI]

Opinion| Lawrence David| ICYMI …  It’s hard to find a reason that impeachment inquiry chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) refused to allow Republicans the ability to question a person who was mentioned in President Trump’s phone call.

The mere mention of that person’s name was used to trigger the most current effort to remove President Trump because, they allege, President Trump’s request of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky represented a quid pro quo for personal political gain.  

Perhaps. But how can any fair investigation, assuming fairness has ever been a part of Schiff’s Stalinist KGB-style inquisition, if we are not allowed to understand the underlying reasons for the president’s request?

Consider that that person is Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.  Hunter Biden had been appointed to the board of directors of Burisma Holdings despite no particular expertise in oil and gas, no knowledge of Ukraine, and an inability to speak the language.

Directors at Exxon get paid $27,500 per month.  Why would Burisma Holdings pay Hunter Biden $83,000 per month, three times the going rate, if they weren’t attempting to buy his father’s influence.

But, Schiff’s desperate inquisition, authorized by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)  isn’t about Hunter Biden or Joe Biden. It is about protecting the legacy Barack Hussein Obama and what’s left of the Democratic Party.

(John Solomon Reports) George Kent, the former charge d’affair at the Kiev embassy, said in testimony released Thursday that the State Department’s main foreign aid agency, known as USAID, planned to co-sponsor a clean energy project with Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden as a board member. 

At the time of the proposed project, Burisma was under investigation in Ukraine for alleged corruption. 


When asked why he intervened, he answered: “”Because Burisma had a poor reputation in the business, and I didn’t think it was appropriate for the U.S. Government to be co-sponsoring something with a company that had a bad reputation.”


Kent’s stoppage of the USAID project adds to a growing body of evidence that Burisma and its corruption issues were causing heartburn inside the State Department during the end of Joe Biden’s tenure as Vice President.

Another State official has reportedly testified he tried to warn Biden’s office that the Burisma matter posed a conflict of interest but was turned away by the vice president’s aides.

Joe Biden has consistently denied he knew anything about his son’s business dealings when he extorted the firing of Viktor Shokin, the prosecutor investigating the corruption at Bursima.  

Biden: “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.’”

“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired.”

It’s hard to understand why the vice president would want the Ukrainian prosecutor fired unless he was ignoring the State Department’s warnings.  

The former vice president should be made to answer questions about this, under oath.  If that were to happen it’s likely to bring Obama into the mix. 

It defies credulity to believe that those sounding the alarm at the State Department didn’t convey their concerns directly to President Obama.
