And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.
So they said they had — they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to — or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said — I said, call him. I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.

My piece in the @NYTimesOpEd today on the Bidens: “Congress can and should conduct an inquiry to determine whether anything illegal occurred.”
“As vice president, Joe Biden served as point person on American policy toward China and Ukraine. In both instances, his son Hunter, a businessman, landed deals he was apparently unqualified to score save for one thing: his father,” Schweizer also wrote.
He was attempting to control corruption. That’s why he wanted them to fire the prosector, Biden suggested. Biden says we’re holding back the Billion dollar loan guarantee’s if you don’t fire the prosecutor before I leave in six hours. They fired the prosecutor.
Question: Was he motivated by trying to control or reduce Ukraine Corruption, by threatening to withhold the Billion dollar loan guarantee unless they fire the alleged corrupt state prosecutor?
In 2014 Ukraine rioted over corruption. Joe Biden wen to Ukraine to help control the corruption.
Three weeks later Biden’s son if offered a job on the board of directors of Burisma which was under investigation for corruption, and paid Hunter Biden’s firm over one million dollars a year. No charges have been brought against Burisma. Same month Joe Biden announced his candidacy for President, Hunter Biden resigned from Burisma. Hunter was recently discharged from the Navy reserves for testing positive for Cocaine. Had no known experience in natural gas or Ukraine.
In Dec. 2013 Biden visits China and by his side is his son hunter. Two weeks later Hunters firm created an investment fund with the bank of china, controlled by the government of China. They hoped to earn 1.5 Billion dollars, Hunter still plays a roll in the fund and his stake is about $500,000.
New York Times, “Joe Biden, his son and the case against a Ukrainian oligarch,” by James Risen: “When Vice President Biden traveled to Kiev, Ukraine, on Sunday for a series of meetings with the country’s leaders, one of the issues on his agenda was to encourage a more aggressive fight against Ukraine’s rampant corruption and stronger efforts to rein in the power of its oligarchs. But the credibility of the vice president’s anticorruption message may have been undermined by the association of his son, Hunter Biden, with one of Ukraine’s largest natural gas companies, Burisma Holdings, and with its owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, who was Ukraine’s ecology minister under former President Viktor F. Yanukovych before he was forced into exile. Hunter Biden, 45, a former Washington lobbyist, joined the Burisma board in April 2014. … Geoffrey Pyatt went on to call for an investigation into ‘the misconduct’ of the prosecutors who wrote the letters. In his speech, the ambassador did not mention Hunter Biden’s connection to Burisma. But Edward C. Chow, who follows Ukrainian policy at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said the involvement of the vice president’s son with Mr. Zlochevsky’s firm undermined the Obama administration’s anticorruption message in Ukraine.”

I get it: he likes to keep busy. He has even found the time to join the board of a gas company called Burisma Holdings Ltd.
Never heard of it. Perhaps that’s because it’s a Ukrainian gas company; Ukraine’s largest private gas producer, in fact. He’s taking charge of the company’s legal unit.
Isn’t that a bit fishy? Why do you say that?
Because he’s the vice-president’s son! That’s a coincidence. “This is totally based on merit,” said Burisma’s chairman, Alan Apter.
He doesn’t sound very Ukrainian. He’s American, as is the other new board member, Devon Archer.
Who? Devon Archer, who works with Hunter Biden at Rosemont Seneca partners, which is half owned by Rosemont Capital, a private equity firm founded by Archer and Christopher Heinz.
Who? Christopher Heinz … John Kerry’s stepson.
I think Putin’s propaganda people can take a long weekend; their work is being done for them. What do you mean?
Hasn’t Joe Biden pledged to help Ukraine become more energy independent in the wake of its troubles with Russia? Well, yes.
And isn’t Burisma, as a domestic producer, well positioned to profit from rising gas prices caused by the conflict? Possibly, but Hunter Biden is a salaried board member, not an investor. According to anonymous sources in the Wall Street Journal, neither Rosemont Seneca nor Rosemont Capital has made any financial investment in Burisma.
So it’s not fishy at all? No one’s saying that.THE GUARDIAN – MAY 14, 2014
There certainly is a lot of circumstances and opportunities for corruption by Biden’s son, Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s involvement. The coincidences are extraordinary, surely an ethical and savvy politician would have seen the danger and would have avoided in semblance of impropriety. Joe Biden did not. If he’s not complicit in a quid pro quo in Ukraine or China he didn’t use good judgment in allowing his son to get million dollar deals on his coattails.

Some people do believe in Coincidence, but in their narrative or face you always see a smile or an eye blink. I’ll just conclude as I started; IF IT LOOKS LIKE A DUCK, WALKS LIKE A DUCK, QUACKS LIKE A DUCK, IT MUST BE A DUKE.
