The fact that you guys give the Trump family a pass on this exact sort of thing just blows me away.

Except several years on the Board of AMTRAK, right? You don't think previous Board of Directors position count as "experience" applicable to other Board seats?

Being on a board doesn't necessarily give you experience, I am on two boards right now and haven't been able to attend a board meeting in over a year.

Biden has also been a huge amtrack supporter, he has given them a ton of money over the years. Bidens support for amtrack came before his son was on the board.

OK. Show me evidence that Hunter wasn't an active participant on AMTRAK's board and I'll agree that he has no relevant qualifications or experience for the position he had at Burisma - not that his hiring alone means Joe did anything untoward to aid Burisma in any way.

GWB put Hunter on the AMTRAK board. Was he trying to "buy" political influence by doing so?

I have no clue what his involvement on the board was, just stating that being on a board doesn't automatically qualify you to be on another.

I am on my kids school board right now, they most likely choose me because of past board experience. But I happily admit to them that I am not qualified for this and have no clue how I am helping. They need bodies, so they leave me on anyways.

On the GWB thing, possibly, I think "corruption" does cross the aisle sometimes. Again, I am just speaking out of my ass though, I have no real clue.

In a global economy this stuff is inevitable and not inherently wrong.

Think of the alternative which would be that anyone running for President or working in Govt can't have a family member who works for a multinational is on a board of a multinational, or invests in a multinational. It's ludicrous.

Think George Bush and his father's involvement in the Carlyle Group.

Romney and any company his hedge fund invested in.

It's what American's who understand The Constitution of our great republic say. Let's investigate this with the same vim and vigor that we investigate Mr. Trump.

Let the rule of law apply to all. Currently, it doesn't. Wouldn't you agree? Justitia agrees.

How are you today?

Indeed. All should. Does Mr. Trump get to face his accusers? WB1 (sic) and WB2?

If it ever makes it to a courtroom, sure.

That right doesn't apply to Congressional investigations that have no legal standing. Correct?

Ummmmm

Hunter Biden is a private citizen, and Trump is the president.

Nothing has been substantiated on Hunter Biden. Nada. Zilch. To open an investigation, you need cause. What is the "cause" for investigating Hunter?
Besides Rudy, Donald, Lev, and Igor saying he's crooked.

Clearly, the charges against Trump have been substantiated by the phone call trsnscript with Ze, and many texts between ambassadors he appointed. Thinking anything else is willful ignorance.

Trump is the de facto head of the DOJ (via the Attorney General). Now knowing that, ask yourself why there isnít an official investigation going on. The answerís pretty obvious ...

Thanks.

Some entities with strong investigative capabilities have latched on to it.

I'm trying to put any bias aside on this - I still am less bothered by those deals than why in the world would a Ukrainian energy company hire someone with no oil and gas experience. At least the Trump family deals are under watchful & hostile scrutiny. My only conclusion is the Biden dealings smell under the floor. Maybe the Trump deals are right there in the garbage can for all to smell.

I have zero doubt that Hunter got hired in the majority due to his last name.

What that does not, in any way, demonstrate is that his daddy did anything for Burisma because of it.

It's been posted and mentioned in this forum probably 50+ times in the past month and yet you and others like you create your own fictional narrative because it makes you feel better

He thinks that if you say it 5000 times, it must be true. I wonder if he is clicking some ruby slippers together as he says/types it.

He took hunter over to China and Ukraine several times on Air Force 2. Did he meet with Burishma and his china contacts on these flight? I don't know and neither do you.
