When aiming to be seen publicly fighting corruption, it’s always a bad look to be suspected of engaging in corruption, but such is the case with the Bidens. Recall that the reason Hunter Biden is now a well-known name is due to the Democrats’ nakedly political attempt to remove President Donald Trump from office via a dubious whistleblower complaint regarding a phone call to Ukraine. Trump asked the president of Ukraine to look into the clearly suspect dealings the Bidens had in Ukraine. This entirely legitimate request set the Democrats off, as they clearly could not abide Trump working to expose dirt on their favored presidential hopeful. Thus, they commenced the absurd impeachment debacle.
The serious questions that intentionally were never answered by the whole impeachment charade remain. Yesterday, however, thanks to an 87-page report released by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance on their investigation into Hunter Biden’s shady foreign dealings, those questions have once again come front and center.
One significant factor must not be missed: The Senate initiated the investigation into Hunter one month before Congress was notified of the dubious whistleblower complaint regarding Trump’s Ukraine phone call. The investigation began after “Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) publicly raised conflict-of-interest concerns about the sale of a U.S. company to a Chinese firm with ties to Hunter Biden,” Ryan Saavedra reported.
But it wasn’t only Republican senators who raised concerns over Biden’s questionable activity. Even State Department officials at the time expressed alarm.

The report includes a summary of the following key findings:
