 answer criticism of Trump by attacking the Bidens

I have zero sympathy for Hunter, who sounds like another privileged class spoiled brat, nor his father.

Once again Trump backers can't defend their political messiah, instead resort to 'others guys are bad, too' and 'can't prove it' defenses, tactics used by authoritarian regimes throughout history.

Drain Trump's ever deepening swamp. Lock up the criminals aiding and abetting him. #butyouguys #backatcha

I fully agree. All criminal behavior, regardless of political or family connections, needs to be exposed and investigated. Rot starts at the top, so begin looking there.

The global alt right team? They seem to have several armies of paid trolls cheerleading their cause, which includes fuhrer undermining the remaining bits of 'western' democracies.

This is unbelievable. Every ***** day, Jared, Ivanka, Eric, and Junior do a hundred times more dirty deals that Hunter Biden ever dreamed of.

So when are Ivanka and Jared going to step down from their White House jobs?

Hunter Biden disputes Trump attacks of his work; wades into impeachment fight

Well, almost. Hunter Biden, "through his attorney", or as "his attorney George Mesires said in a statement". It appears that Hunter the hermit is still "wading" somewhere safe on untouchable dry land.

But at least one person has been able to find the elusive Hunter Biden. So we got that going for us.

The next thing you know, the Democrats will actually begin an impeachment by holding an actual floor vote. The U.S. Constitution makes it clear that the U.S. House has the sole responsibility for impeachment. That would be the U.S. House taken as a whole (all of it's members vote), and not because of a political whim from one of it's members ( I am the Pelosi, and you will do as I say ).

Hunter Biden, the son of former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, for the first time on Sunday defended his work in Ukraine and China

Oh yes. I absolutely would like to hear more about Hunter Bidens valuable work for the Ukranian oil company which was worth 600,000 USD/year, more than any other board member of the company got. And about about his valuable work in China, which was rewarded so generously. Hunter Biden, please tell us more! Also about about your daddys 900,000 Dollar consulting payment from Berisma, which came just after you landed your 600,000 Dollar job. Surely the fact that your daddy was VP at the time had NOTHING to do with that? No, of course not. Please tell us more about your Ukrainian gas and Chinese finance experience!

CNN is curious (not).

No.

Hunter's lawyer, while defending his client, is under no legal obligation to tell the public the truth. And Hunter can not be held legally responsible for any lies his lawyer tells the public.

Correct, but none of this changes the fact that a lawyer speaking on behalf of their client is effectively the client speaking.

Meanwhile, in the Trump family, Ivanka has patent deals with the Chinese and Trump's sons are flying around the world closing business deals for the Trump family, and the Donald himself has been sending USAF personnel to his out of the way properties and now wants the next G-something or other meeting at his Florida country club.

And Trump and his supporters are all hot and bothered by Hunter Biden?

Get real!

Team Putin?

Hunter - stay out of the spotlight - everyone except the crazy alt-right wingers know this story is dead and done.

Keep the focus on Donnie and his confession, his handpicked Special Envoy testifying that he put the words in his mouth on the quid-pro-quo, the fact that even more Whistle Blowers are now coming forward, and the dally crazy antics of Uncle Rudy who is doing his best to bury Trump....

Once these congress people get elected they tend to keep staying in office either because of voter complacency or spending other people’s money. They get a lot richer than most ordinary Americans by the time they leave. (Think Harry Reid and his lobbyist sons.). They receive better benefits than the 99% of the taxpayers who fund them. There are many things about Trump that are not palatable, but because of his pulpit he brings issues out in the open. Opioid crisis, immigrations problems, veterans and the homeless, unfair trade deals, endless wars, high drug prices, etc. Unfortunately, the one big problem that he and the swamp are ignoring is the growing trillion dollar debt. And you can only tax so much of someone’s wealth even though the socialists and communists would have you think differently.

"Hunter undertook these business activities independently," his attorney George Mesires said in a statement.

Yeah - it was just a coincidence that the privileged ex-con son of the Vice President flys to foreign countries on Air Force 2 and comes back home a millionaire.

"He did not believe it appropriate to discuss them with his father, nor did he."*

Except Junior told a magazine months ago that he did consult with his Daddy about his business ventures. But let’s not listen about anything negative about the Democrat because the only goal is to get Trump.

Yeah, it wouldn’t be seen odd to Democrats. You can’t say it’s a crime if you’re unwilling to look at the evidence. Here we have a guy who was dishonorably discharged from the military, bad record, zero experience but gets a sweet CEO position making $50k a month. Sure, nothing wrong with that. But then when Barr, Durham and Gowdy want to to look deeper into these suspicious findings they all wig out as well as their media lapdog surrogates that are desperately trying indoctrinate the public there’s nothing going on. Thank God the media is not part of the law enforcement. Just a bunch of partisan hacks.

Exactly. Don’t look into Hillary/DNCC’s dossier. Don’t look into Biden’s son globetrotting on a government plane with his Vice President father coming home with millions in his bank account. Don’t look at the Clinton Foundation and the tens of millions the Clintons received and used to fund their private planes and pampered lifestyle. Nope. Russia, Russia, Russia! No wait.

His dad and the gang at CNN vouch for his innocence, but I could care less what Cooper or Cuomo think.

Hunter Biden does not have to do anything. Why does he have to prove his innocence. You seem to forget, under American law, someone is innocent until proved guilty. He has not been charged nor has anyone come forward and presented any real evidence that he's guilty of anything.

Unlike Trump who s the elected president, Hunter Biden isn't an elected official or standing for office.

He does not need to prove his innocence. Someone needs to prove his guilt.

Whatever he states in public the haters will try to weaponise it against him.

You can’t say it’s a crime if you’re unwilling to look at the evidence. Here we have a guy who was dishonorably discharged from the military, bad record, zero experience but gets a sweet CEO position making $50k a month.

That is 100% which you have repeated many times, blind to the truth which I have shown you several times. Why the constant fake posts?

No dishonorably discharge. I would have thought a guy with experience with the military would know about discharges. Biden was never CEO. He worked in the legal dept. You are jealous of his salary? That isn't too high for a Yale lawyer. Maybe jealous of that too.

If Congress can impeach Trump for a phone call they can also impeach for the mueller report. Nothing prevents that. Except evidence of wrongdoing.

Unfortunately, Trump was excellent at his disinformation campaign, and by the time congress go the report, Trump had convinced the morons on your team he was exonerated.

Ok, but it doesn’t matter what you say or how you want to elaborate and defend this guy. Barrr, Durham and Gowdy will determine that, that’s the only thing that matters.

Doesn't mean he’s immune from any investigation or that he’s innocent, Barr, Durham and Gowdy will determine that.

I did a quick search and couldn't find it was a 'dishonorable discharge'. As I recall there are couple types of less-than honorable discharges, with dishonorable the harshest. I also think Hunter's daddy would be able to pull strings to keep his boy from getting one. I also think most posters with no military service to country might not be aware of the range of discharges, and suggest posters who claim it was a 'dishonorable discharge' cite sources, even their usual RT/Breitbart/infowars ones.

Why liberals go into freak mode always? Now if that were true he wouldn’t be raising so much money in such a short period given the circumstances surrounding him. Sanders is out and Biden won’t be able to weave and dodge the questions that are coming his way, not to mention he has become a liability for the Democrat party, which leaves Warren.

I think the confusion here is that when the world says “dishonorable discharge”, we are referring to an American soldier being discharged with that status. But when the right use the term, they’re referring to the boogeyman. Responses to them should refer to the boogeyman, so that we’re all talking about the same thing they are.
