A business associate of Hunter Biden has just released his emails that detail of payments for access of Chinese Communist Party officials to Vice President Biden through Hunter Biden. The story of paying for access sounds very much like that from emails from the Delaware laptop:
Emails from the Delaware laptop continue to be released. Here is a description of what Burisma executives expected from their payments to Hunter Biden:
"The scope of work should also include organization of a visit of a number of widely recognized and influential current and/or former US policy-makers to Ukraine in November," wrote Pozharskyi, adding that the goal was to "bring positive signal/message and support on Nikolay’s issue to the Ukrainian top officials above with the ultimate purpose to close down for any cases/pursuits against Nikolay in Ukraine. "
Meanwhile, there is this text message from the laptop:
"It’s really hard. But don’t worry unlike Pop, I won’t make you give me half your salary."
"Pop" is Hunter’s name for his dad, Joe Biden.
The Constitution is clear that bribery is one of the impeachable offenses:
“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
Democrats claimed proof of a criminal offense beyond all reasonable doubt is unnecessary for impeachment, and Pelosi was clear that threats to withhold payments based on political considerations amounted to a bribe:
“The bribe is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement of a fake investigation into the elections,” Pelosi said. “That’s bribery.”
Clearly further investigation is necessary to confirm the validity of the contents of the emails. Should the House start formal investigations if Biden is elected?
If there is good evidence the Joe Biden received a share of the payments to Hunter Biden to prevent Burisma executives, does that constitute an impeachable offense?
For background, here is Joe Biden bragging about using threats of withholding US assistance to get a Ukrainian prosecutor fired:
