    A large tax debt owed to the government by the son of former Vice President Joe Biden has disappeared, according to a report. Hunter Biden, who has faced scrutiny over allegedly profiting from businesses internationally using his father’s influence, recently told a court in his Arkansas paternity case that he was out of work and broke. The Washington Free Beacon reported Saturday that despite the younger Biden’s reported personal and financial woes, he was able to resolve a six-figure tax debt in a short period of time. “Hunter Biden was hit with a $450,000 lien in July over delinquent state...

    Washington Post (democracy dies with democrats) ^ | 8/05/20 | Paul Sonne, Karoun Demirjian, David L. Ster
    One of President Trump’s top supporters in the Senate is pressing ahead with a politically fraught investigation into former vice president Joe Biden and Ukraine, despite warnings from Democrats that he risks laundering Russian disinformation into the United States through the Senate ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, is scrutinizing a Ukrainian gas company’s hiring of Biden’s son onto its board and the activities of a lobbying firm it hired in Washington, reviving a thread of the Trump impeachment proceedings that the president’s allies hope...

    House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) issued a subpoena Friday to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo demanding tens of thousands of documents that the State Department provided to Senate Republicans as part of their investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son's business dealings in Ukraine. Engel accused Pompeo of using State Department resources to advance a smear campaign against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee and demanded documents provided to GOP senators be made available to House Democrats. “Secretary Pompeo has turned the State Department into an arm of the Trump campaign and he’s not even...
  • Joe Biden is bringing back the front-porch campaign. It might work. (probably not)

    07/07/2020 3:21:02 PM PDT · by Libloather · 41 replies
    Republicans keep hoping and expecting that former vice president Joe Biden will have to leave his basement and hit the campaign trail sometime soon. Don’t be surprised, though, if that doesn’t happen. Biden looks to be trying to run a 21st-century version of the standard 19th-century “front porch campaign” - and it might work. Presidential candidates rarely actively campaigned in the 19th century. The lack of a national railroad system made travel too arduous for candidates before 1850. Even after that, it took days for trains to travel between major cities, and the lack of any means of mass communication...

    Documents show Hunter Biden still controls a stake in a Chinese investment firm despite his promise to resign from the company’s board and a pledge from his father Joe Biden that no one in the family will have foreign business entanglements if he is elected in November. The troubled son of Joe Biden, a former vice president who is now the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, holds a 10% equity stake in the Chinese government-linked Bohai Harvest RST (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Company, according to Chinese business records first reported by the Daily Caller. Through his lawyer, Hunter had...

    The Lid (blog) ^ | 6/17/20 | K. Walker, Jeff Dunetz
    The attempted bribe was described as the “biggest reported bribe attempt in Ukrainian history.” Three individuals with ties to Mykola Zlochevsky, the founder of Burisma Holdings, are being accused of attempting to bribe anti-corruption officials in Ukraine to end the investigation into the company and its founder for embezzlement. Zlochevsky denies involvement in the scheme. **SNIP** How can that be the most substantial bribe in Ukraine history? Joe Biden gave them a billion dollars for firing the prosecutor that was investigating Burisma. That’s what Joe said. **SNIP** Whether or not the actions of Joe Biden and his son Hunter crossed...

    An audit of thousands of old case files by Ukrainian prosecutors found no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Hunter Biden, the former prosecutor general, who had launched the audit, told Reuters. Ruslan Ryaboshapka was in the spotlight last year as the man who would decide whether to launch an investigation into former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter, in what became a key issue in the impeachment of President Donald Trump. President Volodymyr Zelenskiy described Ryaboshapka as “100 percent my person” on a call in July 2019 in which Trump asked Zelenskiy to investigate Biden, the...

    Ukraine’s recently appointed prosecutor general, 41-year-old Iryna Venediktova, is a woman to watch. The president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, expects her to investigate and prosecute his predecessor. **SNIP** On the night of May 19, Venediktova personally approved the beginning of criminal proceedings against former President Petro Poroshenko for high treason and abuse of office. The move was triggered by leaked recordings of confidential conversations that allegedly took place in 2015-2016 between Poroshenko and then Vice President Biden, as well as John Kerry, who was the U.S. secretary of state at the time. **SNIP** “I know there’s a lot more of...

    It’s pretty clear who the commie bastards known for their shoddy lab practices and their weird fetish for gnawing on pangolins badly want to win in November, and is not Trump and the Republicans. The Chinese communists want their money’s worth, and they will go all-in for the Democrats who find the chance to hurt Trump at the same time they hurt America too delicious to pass up. Plus, the Dems heartily approve of what Mao’s Pals are doing to freedom-loving Hong Kongers, seeing it as a template for what they would love to do to freedom-loving us. We need...

    Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said he expected the subpoena he voted for on Wednesday to yield emails from Blue Star Strategies, a lobbying firm that represented Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy company for which Hunter Biden worked. Paul said during an interview with conservative podcast host Charlie Kirk that he believes the emails will prove that Biden was only hired by the company on the strength of his name. "There is evidence that they, in all likelihood have email exchanges, saying, hey, let's use Hunter Biden to get access to the State Department," he said."It's gonna look very, very damning...

    A Senate committee voted along party lines Wednesday to issue a subpoena as part of the Republican-led investigation into the Ukrainian energy firm that hired former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden. The subpoena is one of several steps Senate Republicans are taking to ramp up probes related to the Obama administration and Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee who will likely challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted 8-6 to authorize the subpoena Chairman Ron Johnson requested for Blue Star Strategies, a US public affairs firm that worked...

    Former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified before Congress that her knowledge about corrupt Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings and Hunter Biden's lucrative position on the board came only from what she read in press reports and a briefing she received by the Obama State Department ahead of her Senate confirmation hearing. But newly uncovered documents show the former ambassador's knowledge of the two subjects was much greater than she told Congress under oath. Citizens United obtained State Department emails this week showing former Ambassador Yovanovitch was involved in discussions regarding Burisma and even attended a meeting with representatives of...

    Ambassador’s impeachment testimony omitted mention of Burisma meetings, letters. During President Trump’s impeachment, former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch testified to Congress that she knew little beyond an initial briefing and “press reports” about Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian natural gas firm that had hired Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter and was dogged by a corruption investigation. “It just wasn’t a big deal,” she declared under oath on Oct. 11, 2019. But newly unearthed State Department memos obtained under the Freedom of Information Act show Yovanovitch’s embassy in Kiev, including the ambassador herself, was engaged in several discussions and meetings about...

    President Trump announced his nominee to serve as ambassador to Ukraine after the Senate’s impeachment trial thrust the relationship between Washington and Kyiv into the spotlight. The White House said in a press release Friday that Trump is tapping Keith Dayton, the current director of the George C. Marshall Center in Garmisch, Germany, and the senior U.S. defense adviser to Ukraine. Dayton also served in the U.S. Army for 40 years, including stints as security coordinator for Israel and the Palestinian Authority, and the director of strategy, plans and policy at the Pentagon. The U.S. has not had an ambassador...

    Two Republican senators sent a request Thursday to the State Department asking to meet with key State Department employees for an investigation into Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy firm that once employed Hunter Biden on its board. The letter from Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, and Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Finance Committee, shows they want to seek interviews and documents specific to the dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. Shokin, who was dismissed in March 2016 after about a year in office by then-President Petro Poroshenko, claims he was ousted...

    The Trump campaign released an online ad Thursday that portrays Joe Biden as being soft on China, hitting the former vice president for protecting “China’s feelings.” “During America’s crisis, Biden protected China’s feelings,” the ad states, showing a montage of Biden with President Xi Jinping and news reports about how he was against President Trump’s coronavirus travel restrictions. “Or perhaps China’s investment?” then flashes across the screen along with news segments about Hunter Biden’s dealings with China. A line is also used from a Peter Schweizer and Jacob McLeod story in the New York Post about how “Joe Biden met...

    Hunter Biden’s baby boy is a week old, but it may be months before his grandfather Joe Biden gets to meet him. Hunter’s wife, Melissa Cohen - who he wed last May, after knowing her for six days - gave birth to a “beautiful and healthy” son on March 28, according to her brother, Garyn Cohen. But presidential candidate, Joe, 77, is currently under a state-mandated lockdown at his home in Wilmington, Del., amid the coronavirus pandemic. **SNIP** Baby-boy Biden was born in Los Angeles, where the family is living in a $2.5 million home in the Hollywood Hills.
