Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"Biden bragged openly" - But the question is 'about what?' I have seen videos of Biden bragging about getting rid of Shokin, but that did not involve Hunter Biden:
But sources ranging from former Obama administration officials to an anti-corruption advocate in Ukraine say the official, Viktor Shokin, was ousted for the opposite reason Trump and his allies claim.

It wasn't because Shokin was investigating a natural gas company tied to Biden's son; it was because Shokin wasn't pursuing corruption among the country's politicians, according to a Ukrainian official and four former American officials who specialized in Ukraine and Europe.

Shokin's inaction prompted international calls for his ouster and ultimately resulted in his removal by Ukraine's parliament.


And, as Oui has noted, there are timeline problems with the allegation that Joe Biden took those actions to protect Hunter.

In addition, Trump's own Homeland Security Secretary had warned Trump that the 'Joe Biden acted to protect Hunter Biden' story had been debunked.

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
