HILLARY CLINTON SEE RUSSIAN ASSETS AROUND EVERY CORNER OF THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY And in what can only be described as odd she said the Russians will support a third party run by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard to help Trump win and also says Jill Stein is totally a Russian Asset. Check this out:
I LOVE GENERAL JAMES MATTIS And I love him even more for this funny poke at President Trump's nasty comments about him. Why the President feels the need to call the people he previously lauded as THE BEST names when they no longer work for him is beyond me. But this is how it went when General Mattis gave a speech last night.
HICK HAS A PRETTY SOLID LEAD OVER CORY GARDNER And this is what I said would likely happen when Hick dropped out of the Presidential race and into the consolation prize Senate race. Hick, who hasn't even officially won the nomination is polling above Gardner by about 10 points. And all because people here HATE Trump. I'll dig into the topline in a bit to see how this thing was weighted.
YOUR VOTER GUIDE MAY HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY PEOPLE ON ONE SIDE OF THE ISSUE. That's what happened in Monument where a group supporting the measure was allowed to
water down write the opposing view for the voter guide.
HOW DO YOU SERVE ON A BOARD OF A UKRAINIAN COMPANY WITHOUT EVER GOING TO UKRAINE? We should ask Hunter Biden because he pulled it off flawlessly, having not been back to Ukraine after he was given a lucrative seat on the board of an oil and gas company which was under investigation until his dad got the prosecutor fired. Five years and not ONE board meeting in Ukraine? And why did they hold board meetings OUT of the country? That seems odd for a $50,000 a month gig, doesn't it? How many OTHER board members never attended a meeting in Ukraine? I'd like to know. This is an interesting nugget from Reuters:
Oleksandr Onyshchenko, a businessman and former member of the Ukrainian parliament who knows the Burisma founder, said it had been Zlochevsky’s idea to appoint Biden as a director. “It was to protect (the company)” at a time when it was facing investigations, said Onyshchenko, who left the country in 2016. In the run up to Biden’s appointment, a popular uprising led to the removal of the Russian-backed Yanukovich in February 2014.
Biden, a trained lawyer, had served on the board of a U.S. company and had also formed an investment firm with fellow Yale graduates Archer and Christopher Heinz, the stepson of former U.S. Senator John Kerry.
According to four sources close to the company, Biden regularly attended Burisma’s twice annual board meetings – all of which were held outside of Ukraine.
A source close to the company said Biden took part in strategic conversations and shared his opinions and experience. In between board meetings, “there were constant calls, dialogue, sharing of advice, consideration of different options,” the source said. “Expansion to other markets was also discussed,” the source added.
I sure hope we investigate this when Joe Biden isn't a candidate anymore.
A WHISTLEBLOWER SAID HE RAISED CONCERNS ABOUT UKRAINE...WITH JOE BIDEN ABOUT HIS SON This is getting really, really interesting now. The Washington Post says a whistleblower tried to raise concerns about Hunter Biden being on the board of a Ukraine company in 2015. From the WaPo:
A career State Department official overseeing Ukraine policy told congressional investigators this week that he had raised concerns in early 2015 about then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son serving on the board of a Ukrainian energy company but was turned away by a Biden staffer, according to three people familiar with the testimony.
George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state, testified Tuesday that he worried that Hunter Biden’s position at the firm Burisma Holdings would complicate efforts by U.S. diplomats to convey to Ukrainian officials the importance of avoiding conflicts of interest, said the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of confidentiality rules surrounding the deposition.
Kent said he had concerns that Ukrainian officials would view Hunter Biden as a conduit for currying influence with his father, said the people. But when Kent raised the issue with Biden’s office, he was told the then-vice president didn’t have the “bandwidth” to deal with the issue involving his son as his other son, Beau, was battling cancer, said the people familiar with his testimony.
This is super inconvenient, huh?
