Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
Y'all persist in disputing specific business activities inferred from Hunter Biden's associates in Ukraine (whatEVER those are),

when the utmost question presented by the US for public impeachment --THIS WEEK-- is WHETHER OR NOT perceptible propriety or impropriety, lawfulness or unlawfullness, legality or illegality, of one's capacity in a US public office to proffer ultimatums to induce political agreement from foreign government officials applies both to Joe Biden and Trump.

Neither ARGeezer, Oui, nor rifek respond to material evidence or any legal standard of evidence or law governing the USA.

StillInTheWilderness's opinion, "Biden bragged openly about denying aid unless a criminal investigation of his son was called off" is an example of an ultimatum to induce political agreement from foreign government officials.

Biden testimony, while VP, are memorialized verbatim in Council on Foreign Relations, "Foreign Affairs Issue Launch with Former Vice President Joe Biden,", Tuesday, January 23, 2018, A/V, running time 00:59:49. (3x)

Biden's testimony is said by some US House representatives to be imcomparable to transcript of Trump's phone conversation with Zelensky, because Trump allegedly induced "personal" gain or profit from cooperation from a foreign government official in ongoing US investigation into alleged unlawful activity involving US and Ukraine persons. Material evidence of those facts obtained by US DOJ is not known to the public nor US House committees which is why committee chairs have subpoenaed particular US agencies.

"Biden bragged openly about denying aid unless a criminal investigation of his son was called off"
It is the veracity of this statement that is at question. You provided a link to video over an hour long as substantiation. I am not watching the whole of that video just to find out what is there. If you want to provide a minute at which the relevant portion starts I will look at that. I have to hear Biden in his own words, not some characterization of them.

I have seen video of Biden bragging openly about getting the Ukrainian government to fire Sholkin, but not a quote from Biden that links Biden's bragging to providing relief to his son, such as 'I got that prosecutor going after my son fired!' I am not unwilling to believe such an allegation per se. Biden is hardly my favorite candidate in the current primary. So, if it were true, it would be two birds with one stone.
