Can the media continue to run interference for the Bidens?

Allow me to begin this commentary with my belief that the Ukrainian issue will be the end of the presidential campaign of former Vice President Joe Biden – who is already not doing that well.

Based on what was said at the first public hearing of the Democrats so-called ‘impeachment inquiry,” it is more likely that the circumstances surrounding the involvement of Hunter Biden with the corrupt Ukrainian energy company, Burisma — and it’s even more corrupt oligarch owner Mykola Zlochevsky — will reveal troublesome activities on the parts of both Hunter and his dad, former Vice President Joe Biden.

If President Trump was the number one subject of the first public impeachment inquiry, Hunter and Joe Biden were number two and three.

The Democrat-owned media is doing all it can to protect the Bidens.  They are calling any potential investigation a shame.  They claim that any suggestion that the Bidens should be investigated is bogus.  They falsely claim that the yet uninvestigated question swirling around Hunter and Joe have already been debunked.

The Democrat’s entire case for impeachment – and it ain’t a good one – is predicated on an argument that Trump promoted investigation of the Bidens to Ukrainian officials – including newly elected President Volodymyr Zelensky – solely for the purpose of “digging up dirt” on presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Trump’s folks argue that the Bidens were merely included in the broader request for investigations of corruption in Ukraine – and that the Bidens were included because of Hunter’s very curious and suspicious role in a known corrupt company headed by a known corrupt oligarch.

The fact that Papa Joe is running for President is only coincidental.  It should not exempt him or his son from investigation based on preliminary facts.  Democrats – who have made political investigation the primary purpose of the United States House of Representative  — are now hypocritically opposing investigations in which they and their allies may be the targets.

That does not mean that Trump is not crying crocodile tears that one of his potential rivals may have stepped in the political doo-doo.  In view of Hunter’s five-year role as a highly paid member of a major corrupt company – and Joe’s role in booting the Ukrainian investigator – it seems this issue will not go away.  More likely, it will fester and come to a head if and when Articles of Impeachment are sent over to the Senate.

At that time, it is likely that Hunter WILL BE subpoenaed to testify.  It is also possible that the ongoing Ukrainian investigations will come to the door of the Bidens.  The entire Biden/Ukrainian issue does not pass the smell test.

The question is: As more is revealed about Hunter’s role in Ukraine (and China for that matter) – and the role of Vice President Biden in fronting for Hunter’s business interests come to light – will even the biased news media be able to politically protect the Bidens?  Will the folks at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post be able to continue to proffer their false nothing-to-look-here narrative for the Bidens?  Methinks not.

So, there ‘tis.
