Joe Biden’s prospects for becoming president are fading.
Biden has tied himself to Barack Obama’s record as President, but Biden continues to fall behind frontrunner Bernie Sanders.
And now it is all falling apart because Joe Biden can’t look at Barack Obama after linking him to this scandal.
The Democrat Party is experiencing major turmoil.
The so-called moderates at the top of the ticket have thinned out, and the radicals are seizing the reins.
Former Vice President Joe Biden was considered to be the strongest candidate in the moderate lane, but his campaign has quickly gone off the rails amid repeated blunders.
But another problem Biden has caused is his link to alleged corruption in Ukraine.
Obama and his big media allies like to pretend that the Obama administration was scandal-free, but Biden is making that ridiculous claim seem more and more ridiculous by the minute.
While Biden was Vice President and point man on foreign affairs vis-à-vis Ukraine, his son Hunter received a cushy job on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
Hunter was paid $83,000 per month despite having zero experience in the energy sector, and no knowledge whatsoever of Ukraine regulatory policy.
Hunter Biden’s million-dollar-a-year job is the epitome of “the swamp” that Trump warned about on his way to the White House in 2016.
As more information about the untoward arrangement emerges, Democrats don’t want to talk about how the scandal is making Obama look bad.
Joe Biden claims there was zero malfeasance regarding his son, but Biden had previously bragged about withholding foreign aid to Ukraine until the government fired a prosecutor who had been investigating Burisma, the company shelling out cash to Hunter Biden.
The appearance of impropriety was bad enough for other top Democrats to condemn the arrangement, and the optics have only gotten worse.
According to newly released emails from the State Department, Sally Painter, an associate of Hunter Biden, sought a meeting with the State Department to quash investigations into the Ukrainian company Burisma.
Biden reportedly linked up Painter with Burisma while serving on the board of the Truman National Security Project, a liberal think tank in DC.
Painter now serves as a surrogate for Biden’s presidential campaign, so the swampiness has come full circle.
This is an utter disaster for the Obama administration.
Donald Trump’s policies have already undone a lot of Obama’s damage, which has caused fissures in his legacy.
Obama preached economic pessimism reminiscent of Jimmy Carter in the late 1970s, then tried to take credit for Trump’s economy.
And the scandals are beginning to stack up for Obama.
The origins of the Russian collusion hoax will likely show that the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign under flimsy pretenses at best.
Now, thanks to the Bidens, Obama is linked to corruption in Ukraine.
Obama didn’t lift a finger while Biden and his family were raking in dough based on his role overseeing key foreign affairs.
This is yet another ugly chapter of the Obama administration Democrats will ignore.
