Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed in a new interview that when his son Hunter was a board member of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while he was in office, no one informed him that it could pose a problem. Biden insisted again that Hunter did nothing wrong, but this time appeared to fault his staff for not cluing him in that there could be concerns about his son's involvement with the foreign company that had been under investigation while Biden was in office and dealing with Ukraine policy.

Comments:

Is Biden for real? How stupid does he think we are? Someone had to tell you that your coke snorting good for nothing son was on the Board of Directors of a foreing company, not able to speak the language, not having ANY experience in the particular field, and the company is under investigation by the Ukraine gvt.-which you then blackmailed o drop the investigation, and you claim NO ONE TOLD YOU IT MIGHT LOOK BAD? You're the stupid one, Joe, if you think we believe a word of that malarky,

Joe Biden is a child and thinks he can get away with anything by blaming others. In my personal opinion Democrats at this point are vindictive,hate-filled and just plain evil. They must be kept out of majority rule in any branch of the Congress for a very long time. Take the never-Trumpers with you.

According to Biden his son "did nothing wrong". That is the entire reason that his son is a loser, dopehead, whoremonger.... He has always had a permissive, absentee, incompetent Father who covered up for him.

Somebody should sit Joe down and have him watch the OAN investigative report that interviews the prosecutor that he had fired for investigating Burisma. He might even want to review the transcripts of the conversations he had just before the firing with the Ukraine President Poroshenko. Biden laid out the bribe request quite clearly as Poroshenko revealed to Shokin shortly thereafter. It might refresh his shaky memory on these matter.

Joe Biden is clearly signaling that he is a dumb ass. as only a dumb ass would not know that his son being hired to a do nothing job by a corrupt Ukrainian energy company at a rate of pay amounting to $83,000.00 a month, at the same time that he (Joe) was Obama’s point man on US foreign policies and doling out foreign aid money to Ukraine would not constitute at least a conflict of interest, and at the most a suspicion of politically based nepotistic corruption on the part of the Bidens and sufficient predication to commence a criminal investigation by the US Department of Justice into those activities. The only reason such an investigation was not commenced is that the Obama crew and the Democrats have been protecting Biden up to now, including attempting to impeach and remove Trump from office for suggesting that the suspected Biden perpetrated corruption be investigated.

I am no attorney and even know better than that. Isn't Biden an attorney? Isn't he a former lawmaker -- one who held office for decades in the highest law-making body of the land (i.e., Congress)? Biden knew better. And he's stupid to think the rest of us are stupid enough to believe he is telling the truth.

Rock legend Bruce Springsteen took aim at President Trump in a new interview Friday, saying the president doesn't "grasp" the meaning of being an American. In an interview on "CBS This Morning," host Gayle King asked Springsteen about a recent Trump rally in which the president bragged that his election victory in 2016 was accomplished without the support of celebrities like Springsteen, Beyoncé and Jay-Z. "You surprised that he's trash-talking you after all this time?" King asked. "Not really. Anything's possible," the New Jersey musician responded. King noted that "a lot of people are very concerned about the direction of the country," with Springsteen agreeing that it's a "very frightening time" in America.

Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib told Detroit’s chief of police that he should hire only black people as analysts to run their facial recognition software because, she claimed, non-black people think they all look alike. The suggestion came Monday as Chief James Craig gave Tlaib a tour of the Real Time Crime Center, where the department uses facial recognition technology to find suspects. Craig was showing Tlaib how the software works, and how analysts use it to identify and locate individuals. But the tour quickly turned contentious as the freshman Michigan congresswoman made repeated requests that were shot down by the chief.

The linchpin heroine of the latest “Star Wars” movie and the previous two installments of the franchise sat down recently with the U.K. Guardian for a wide-ranging interview when the conversation veered into U.S. politics. Ms. Ridley said that Americans must suffer some form of mental illness to support the Republican president. “Given that Disney owns Star Wars, is she conscious of what issues she can talk about publicly?”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Tuesday indicated that Democrats must impeach President Trump quickly in order to stop him from prevailing in the 2020 presidential election. Democrats on Tuesday unveiled two articles of impeachment against the president: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Notably, neither allege a high crime or misdemeanor. Noticeably absent was the Democrats’ longheld appeal to bribery, extortion, or treason. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), flanked by chairs Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Adam Schiff (D-CA), Eliot Engel (D-NY), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), and Richard Neal (D-MA), stepped aside as both Nadler and Schiff briefly offered minimal details on their decision.

In the hours after U.S. Attorney John Durham announced Monday that he did not "agree" with key findings by Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz, speculation swirled over what Durham has uncovered in his ongoing review into potential surveillance abuses against President Trump's team. Durham's inquiry has had a broader scope than Horowitz's, including a focus on foreign actors as well as the CIA, while Horowitz concentrated his attention on the DOJ and FBI. Additionally, Durham's criminal review has had additional investigative resources not available to Horowitz.

For two years, the president of the United States and his followers have loudly declared that the FBI acted unlawfully in conducting a counterintelligence investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. They repeatedly told the American people that the FBI had done all sorts of bad things, such as tapping Donald Trump’s wires during the campaign, opening an investigation without adequate cause, with the intent to damage Trump, and inserting secret informants into the Trump campaign. The president said the FBI’s actions were “treason.”
