I chose Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) as my VIP for this week because he appears to have grown a spine to stand up to Democrats. Democrats continue look for a reason to impeach Donald Trump, and they think that they may have found it with the current “controversy” about a July telephone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine. Graham is more than willing to join them in calling for an investigation.
Graham is pushing the Department of Justice to investigate the relationship between Ukraine and the United States, particularly when Joe Biden was the vice president. He told a radio host that the clamor for information about Trump’s phone call is a perfect opportunity to look at the deals between Ukraine and Biden. The New York Times reported in May that Biden was instrumental in 2016 of ousting a prosecutor in Ukraine who investigating Burisma Holdings. It seems that Biden’s son, Hunter, was being paid a monthly salary of $50,000 for being a Burisma board member.
The strange thing is that Biden is already on record for bragging about getting the Ukraine prosecutor fired. Since Biden is now campaigning to be the next President of the United States, it seems only fair that the family’s relationship with Ukraine is given the same scrutiny as Trump’s family’s alleged dealings with Russia received. Graham is calling for the same standards being used to “judge” Biden as were used on Trump. It seems fair to me!
