Attention may finally be turning toward the question of just exactly what was Hunter Biden doing in Ukraine and China while his father Joe was Vice President and point man for the Obama administration on those countries.
But Democrats really don’t want you to hear it.
Even Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who is running for president in the primary against Joe Biden, came to his defense in a cringeworthy moment when questioned by the media as to what she thought. Would she approve of her Vice President’s son or daughter serving on the board of a foreign oil company as Hunter did?
“As far as I’m concerned, leave Joe Biden alone,” she said, claiming it’s a distraction (from the real goal of getting President Donald Trump). How dare people look at what Hunter Biden was doing in Ukraine and China while his dad was influencing critical decisions on those two countries!

One shouldn’t ask questions about the propriety of things like this:
Joe Biden claims he has never talked to his son, Hunter, about his business dealings.
However, when he was VP, Joe Biden flew Hunter to China on Air Force 2 where he conducted business and obtained a $1 billion private equity deal with the Chinese government two weeks later. pic.twitter.com/nYbm1449zH

Or why Hunter Biden would be appointed to a board of an energy company in Ukraine, receiving $50,000/month when he has no experience in the field.
Harris’ defense of Biden was just too much for former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.
Leave Joe Biden alone? So are you telling us @KamalaHarris that what Biden did was ethical and moral? Where are the questions about the conflict of interest that occurred from Biden’s actions and the issues with his son? This response is embarrassing. https://t.co/AdUP38KinY

Right on the money.
Democrats want to distract from the real issue, which is that they have countenanced this kind of thing, both with Biden and with the Clintons.
If a candidate running for president doesn’t see the problem with it and just wants to dismiss it, maybe that person really shouldn’t be running for president.
Good on Haley for calling it out.
