Joe Biden is tanking in the polls. That’s a very good thing. Compared to the insane crowd running against him, his policies almost seem preferable. They’re far to the left and dangerous, but next to Bernie, almost anything seems like a good alternative.
In Joe’s case, policy isn’t what matters. He’s the most deeply corrupt person running for president right now (which is saying something). He comes from old and established corruption. You know some of it, but one of the stories you think you already knew just got a whole lot worse. Joe Biden absolutely cannot become president under any circumstances.
Viktor Shokin is the Ukrainian prosecutor who was fired at the request of Joe Biden. That’s the video you’ve seen where Biden said Ukraine wouldn’t get a billion dollars in aid from the U.S. unless the prosecutor was fired.
When it came out that the prosecutor was investigating Burisma (the company Joe’s son Hunter Biden was consulting for), the defense for Joe was that an international coalition knew that Shokin was corrupt and all wanted him fired. It wasn’t personal because everyone was on board and Shokin was obviously a bad guy.
That would be a solid defense — if it was the whole story. Turns out that there was international support for the firing. That part is true. But, that support came from intelligence that originated with the U.S. State Department.
The deputy secretary of state at the time (Tony Blinken) was approached by Hunter Biden to meet with an informant and discuss trouble in Ukraine. The informant was Sally Painter. She worked for Blue Star Strategies. That is a firm that was hired by Burisma to help stop investigations into their corruption.
In leaked emails (to multiple recipients), Painter revealed that Blue Star Strategies had been supplying information to the State Department for more than a year. That information formed the basis for having Shokin fired.
The U.S. State Department took false information from Burisma about the corruption of a prosecutor. They disseminated that information to U.S. allies and then used international agreement to justify actions against Shokin.
Think about this. Our government didn’t just use bad information to fire a prosecutor and shield Hunter Biden’s company from investigation. That would already be terrible. We now know that they were aware that they were getting information from Burisma in the first place. They were complicit in the whole thing.
Lest you have any doubt as to Blinken’s intentions in all of this, he’s one of Joe Biden’s leading campaign surrogates. They’re thick as thieves.
So, here’s what we know. The Obama Administration was so corrupt that the State Department took bad evidence from a corrupt company and used it to convince our allies that the investigation into that company was the true corruption. Now, the centerpiece of that entire snafu is running for president.
