      While Biden / FTX / Crypto / Democratic Party briefly made the news, remember Joey was criminally investigated in Ukraine for his role in interfering in internal investigations.

      From https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/436816-joe-bidens-2020-ukrainian-nightmare-a-closed-probe-is-revived/ and even https://www.congress.gov/116/meeting/house/110331/documents/HMKP-116-JU00-20191211-SD067.pdf :

      Two years after leaving office, Joe Biden couldn’t resist the temptation last year to brag to an audience of foreign policy specialists about the time as vice president that he strong-armed Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor.

      In his own words, with video cameras rolling, Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

      Shokin told me in written answers to questions that, before he was fired as general prosecutor, he had made “specific plans” for the investigation that “included interrogations and other crime-investigation procedures into all members of the executive board, including Hunter Biden.”

      Most of the general prosecutor’s investigative work on Burisma focused on three separate cases, and most stopped abruptly once Shokin was fired. The most prominent of the Burisma cases was transferred to a different Ukrainian agency, closely aligned with the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, known as the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), according to the case file and current General Prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko.

      There’s a lot more detail in the article to remind us of Biden’s effective immunity to investigations of corruption and what the US public didn’t learn in mainstream news.

      Exactly how much Hunter’s investments and perhaps some by Joe’s brother influenced his provoking a war in Ukraine.

        Destruction of a country isn’t good for business – but I believe that Hunter was supposed to be off the board in Ukraine by the time Joey was running for office. China, I don’t know about . . .

        But then, even $80,000 a month is chump change compared to the billions funneled to Ukraine.

        My real suspicion is that Joey just wanted to finish his plans from the Maidan revolution – Ukraine as a NATO country on the border with Russia with a military base on Crimea. Of course, (many of) the people in Ukraine didn’t want that, so there’s been eight years of civil war. Now with a shrinking economy with a shrinking infrastructure, as well as a shrinking country.

      And the Democratic Party has set that in stone.

      "Sometimes when I try to understand a person's motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?'" GRRM

      They would trade dirt for aid. Trump was thwarted by the Democrats from outright extorting cooperation.

      By 2024/2025 Zelenskyy could be like that minister in There Will Be Blood, desperate to do the deal he’d formally been against. His milkshake/dirt on Biden might not be worth a lot by then.
