Are Impeachment Hearings a Democratic Smokescreen for Biden's Corruption?

Joe Biden has a long-standing relationship with Burisma Holdings, going back to his time as Vice President. Burisma is a Ukraine-based oil and gas conglomerate. As VEEP, Biden was tasked to oversee US dealings with Ukraine.

Biden's son, Hunter, was receiving up to $200,000 per month as a 'board member' of Burisma, beginning after Biden was out of office. Biden has threatened to withhold over $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine unless they fired Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma's relationship with Hunter Biden.

The Democrats are asking us to ignore all this and investigate Trump for pressuring the Ukraine government to expose it. This smacks of the pot calling the kettle black.

The headline in this article, which I neglected to transcribe, was that Burisma also paid Biden $900,000 personally for his influence. This payment was after Biden was out of office.

Josh, you are exactly right. Biden is not only corrupt, but he is also a heartless warmonger. Recall the sanctions against Iran during his term that resulted in the deaths of half a million children.


Trump is being politically assassinated by his enemies, all of whom are indebted to America's endless and extremely profitable and deadly/destructive war business.

We need to explore the involvement of Pelosi and her son in Ukraine activities as well.


May explain why Nancy obstructed justice during the Bush W administration when impeachment should have been "on the table"

This is just the tip of the iceberg of US foreign policy. It is all corrupt. US foreign policy has always been for commercial interests and rich influential families. Corrupt politicians like the Bidens, Clintons, etc etc get greased above and below the table, too.

The amount of "legal" corruption is astronomical. It goes to subsides everything from oil corporations, banana plantations and opium smugglers in the old "China trade". Wars are fought for profiteers, and to acquire natural resource franchises for corporations and the wealthy, and to protect their interests.

US foreign policy and wars are of very little to no benefit of the US public. Some of it trickles down with low gasoline prices, for instance, but the money would be a lot better spend directly on the public so it could "trickle up".

I agree. And there would be "trickle sideways" from the "power rectangle" if my plan to rescue America from itself was ever implemented. To see what I mean, go to Amazon Books and enter Gary Brumback's "911!" book and continue to the Look Inside, which gives the T of C and the preface.


I wish all OEN readers and authors would buy the dirt-cheap book!

I am puzzled by the title to this article. It seems to me that by making the Trump/Zelensky telephone call the centerpiece, or perhaps the only charge, of impeachment charges the Democrats have highlighted the stinky Biden deal and the Russiagate fraud perpetrated by the DNC. I have also been curious as to why Trump has not launched his own investigation into the fraud committed by the Democratic Party in connection with the 2016 election and Hillary Clinton's fraud in connection with the use of her personal server in order to hide information from the people (information to which the people would have had access via the Freedom Of Information Act had it not been illegally kept out of proper channels for storage). Does anyone have any insight as to why Trump has not done that? Is it because the intelligence agencies will not cooperate with him to do a proper investigation? I am a progressive and have never voted for a Republican for a national office. However, I agree with Trump's statement that Hillary Clinton should be in prison for her crimes. Perhaps I should mention that I did not vote for either Trump or Clinton in the 2016 election.

Trump, who I believe is an ignorant boorish example of a humanoid, came into office as an outsider to the Establishment (aka Deep State) and consequently has been under "investigations" his entire time in office. He has further had the influencing of Deep State in order to get him to "toe the line" as early in 2017 there were frequent "visits" made by Henry Kissinger, that war criminal and voice of several arms of the Deep State, which may have included several scare tactics such as "remember JFK", don't forget how we got Richard Nixon, etc. (Yes, Kissinger was involved with both of those). A result was Trump, who campaigned on getting out of Syria and announced he was going to do that until John Bolton was brought on. This was a move that was contrary to Trump's thinking so one can only assume it was one not made by him, but for him. It was later discovered that Bolton was a favorite of Sheldon Adelson who just happened to make a huge donation.

The best results of this would be a total investigation of Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Clinton , etc. Let's not forget Bill Clinton is a member of the head of the Deep State
