    Just confirming what all reasonable people already knew:

    Ukraine alleges $5 million bribe over Burisma, no Biden link
    Ilya Zhegulev

    KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian officials on Saturday said they were offered $5 million in bribes to end a probe into energy company Burisma’s founder, but said there was no connection to former board member Hunter Biden whose father is running for the U.S. presidency.

    ...

    “Let’s put an end to this once and for all. Biden Jr. and Biden Sr. do not appear in this particular proceeding,” Nazar Kholodnytsky, head of anti-corruption investigations at the prosecution service, told Saturday’s briefing.

    ...

    The country’s former prosecutor general told Reuters in June that an audit he commissioned while in office of thousands of old case files had found no evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden while he worked for Burisma.

    Case closed, eh. The Bidens are not corrupt and Trump is, as ever, completely full if it.

    The Guardian had reported this 10 days ago. Reuters must be catching up.

    It would not make any sense for Hunter or Joe Biden to be involved with a bribe from the founder.

    The story is this LATEST bribe attempt doesn't involve the Bidens.

    This, of course, is not going to stop Lil Lindsey from investigating "as good a man as God ever created" and his son, on direct orders from Der Bossman...

    I hope somebody throws that line at Lindsey during one of his bogus hearings (assuming anybody shows up for his subpoenas, that is).

    Absolute immunity works both ways...

    It's funny how the OP believes Ukraine now but when they also said Trump never coerced them they couldn't believe that.

    If he broke the law then impeach him also.

    Not rocket science here.
