The former Ukraine Prosecutor General has filed charge in Ukraine against Joe Biden for interfering with his prosecution of Burisma, the oil & gas firm Hunter Biden worked for, in the 2014-2016 period, when the senior Biden was V.P. of the U.S. Under the filing, the Ukraine investigators are obligated to move quickly to launch an investigation into the charges. The penalties can result in up to 4 years jail time. Though Joe Biden is unlikely to have to serve time, even if found guilty in a Ukraine court (in abstentia), imagine the difficulties if a sitting U.S. president was facing a jail sentence in a U.S. allied country.
In any case, it weakens the Senate prosecution case against Trump considerably in the U.S.
