Count me among the people who see more good than bad in President Trump requesting the Ukraine president to investigate Joe Biden’s involvement in suppressing allegations of corruption involving his son, noted philandering cokehead Hunter Biden, and the major privately (by that I mean oligarch) held natural gas company in Ukraine, Burisma. But if it is possibly improper for a president to ask another president to investigate corruption, then we need to look at the entire context including whether it is improper for a vice president to demand that another nation leave his kid alone.

Thanks to Lindsey Graham, we will be getting that context and some must-see television. Because, where the Democrats are insisting that their star “witness” (if a rumor-monger can be classified as a witness) remain anonymous, Graham’s first witness will be anything but reticent about publicity.

Just some thoughts on this. First, I have zero doubts that whatever legitimate motives Biden had in interfering in the domestic politics of another nation by threatening to withhold military aid despite them being under assault by Russia (remember RUSSIA IS NOT OUR FRIEND!!1!!!11!!!1!), a significant reason for him doing so is that Joe Biden is a grifter and he knows his son is a grifter, too. But while Joe Biden has always been somewhat measured and discreet in his graft and grift, Hunter Biden has no discernible sense of boundaries or proportion.

Secondly, the Democrats are trying to build a mystique about their “witness” by hiding him and you can bet they will leak parts of his testimony designed to bolster their case just as they did with the Volker testimony. Having a full blown investigation into Joe Biden’s actions is not going to make him look good. It isn’t going to make Nancy Pelosi’s son look good. It isn’t going to make Mitt Romney look good because Romney’s long time “foreign policy adviser,” former CIA official Cofer Black, is now on the board of Burisma, too.

Which of these events is going to get media attention. The secret hearing? Or the one with Rudy Giuliani hurling his patented mixture of truth, innuendo, and sheer bullsh**?
