23. This is bogus.

A realistic version of these events has been common knowledge for years.

Hunter Biden did hold a directorship with a natural gas company called Burisma Holdings, beginning in the spring of 2014. Ukraine’s prosecutor general Viktor Shokin was ousted as prosecutor in 2016.

So why hasn't the US House of Representatives ever looked into this? Republicans had control there until the beginning of this year. Is it because they were too busy smearing candidate Hillary with the Benghazi investigations? Why hasn't this been investigated by any other US entity? It's because this sham has been fabricated to benefit Trump in the general election next year.

Joe Biden did urge Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, with the threat of withholding U.S. aid. But that was the position of the wider U.S. government. Western leaders and institutions were largely united in seeking Shokin’s removal, arguing that he was not pursuing corruption cases aggressively.

There is no evidence to support the idea that Joe Biden advocated with his son's interests in mind. It's not even clear that the company was actively under investigation at that time, or that a change in prosecutors benefited it.
