Question on this Hunter Biden laptop distraction?

The right wing- media and the Trump supporters in general keep harping on the idea that Hunter Biden was selling access to his father's influence as Vice President, but I never hear them point to any actions or policy taken by then Vice President Biden that would indicate he had been influenced.

Has anyone heard of any policy shift or any action taken by Vice President Biden to indicate or give the impression he had been influenced? I have heard nothing.

If they can't claim the Vice President ever did anything for the so-called influence, how can they say there was influence?

For contrast, in 2016 Trump gave the distinct impression that he was doing Russia a favor by wanting his party's platform concerning U.S. assistance to Ukraine changed. This was seen by many as a way of rewarding Russia. Those thinking so had a good point. To my knowledge nothing like this policy change of the republican platform exists in the allegations being leveled at the Bidens.

1. Specifics are not the point. The point is simply to get out the doubt.

3. You're right, but I think this should be brought out

If they are going to claim there was influence being sold, then they should have to name it. Otherwise they are just fishing, or in terms they like to use: 'conducting a witch hunt'.

5. exactly.......

always leave the IMPRESSION that something nefarious went on. it isn't an accident that the rethugs controlled all three branches of government from 2017-2019, and all but the House since, and Hillary Clinton has never so much as been charged with anything. Because there was never anything to charge her with. But millions believe she is a criminal.

4. It's the Hillary email scamdal all over again. "Let's have 9 investigations to find out!"

Most republican scamdals are just made up fantasies that there might be an actual scandal there to find.

as with the emails, they really hoped there was some important secrets that actually got hacked. But no. Just done low lever secrets that weren't marked as such that no one ever hacked.

Same with the hunter thing. They're just hoping joe made a phone call and promised a quid pro quo or something. Pure fantasy.

7. The opposite from the start of all this. Absolutely, there was no policy shift or adaption to

allegations. Even if true, it made no difference.

8. Even if it were true it's exactly what trump does

So how can they act like itís even wrong?

I mean selling Access to their stupid dad IS the only job the Trumpkins have.

So whatís the big fucking deal?

On top of the fact the whole thing is a Russian fake, obviously.
