Both sides of the Biden/Ukraine issue – those seeing guilty behavior by both Joe and Hunter opposed to those who claim it is all debunked baloney – do not reflect a very real possibility. Is it possible that Hunter could be guilty of crimes but not Joe?
In the worst-case scenario for the Bidens, Hunter is guilty in participating in corrupt activities in Ukraine and that daddy Joe got his son the job and protected him from investigation. But there is a third possibility, however – that Joe did nothing wrong, but his son did. This would mean that, at worst, Joe Biden turned a blind-eye to his son’s obvious association with a corrupt company – a serious issue in and of itself, but not criminal.
The prospect that Hunter is more of a wayward son gains credence in the one and only bit of reported evidence regarding what each may have known or done. In a call between the Vice President and Hunter, it is claimed by Joe that the only conversation he had with his son on the subject was when he rhetorically asked, “I hope you know what you are doing?” and Hunter responded, “I do.”
The senior Biden does stretch credibility by claiming that was the sum total of their discussion. Obviously, there would have had to be much more detailed discussion before Joe could have even asked that question. But we can infer that whatever preceded that closing statement, Hunter just has given some assurance that what he would be doing for the corrupt Burisma Holdings was perfectly proper. Otherwise, Joe would more likely have said, “WHAT! Are you crazy? No son, you are not taking that job. Don’t you realize that you would be in the heart of the very corruption than me and Barack are fighting against?”
There could be a legal exit ramp for old Joe, but that would still leave credible suspicions hovering over Hunter. It is virtually impossible to imagine that Hunter could work on behalf of a corrupt company headed by Mafia godfather-like oligarch and be totally unaware or unparticipating in the corruption.
Whatever the truth may be, Trump was not wrong in proposing an investigation of the Bidens. For reasons unrelated to the presidential election, such an investigation should be conducted. Joe Biden should not be immune from such a look-see just because he is running for President. It is even more reason why the Bidens should be investigated. Such an investigation may be the only way Joe Biden can clear his name – even if it means his son takes the fall.
So, there ‘tis.
