Joe Biden is out of office so he obviously can’t be impeached. Since he is running for president, his behavior should be examined using the same standards I applied to Donald Trump.
First, I would like to say a word about his son Hunter. He isn’t running for office yet his name is being dragged through the mud. He is very accomplished, having had successful careers in law, finance and public relations. George W. Bush put him on the board of directors for Amtrak. Undoubtedly the Ukrainian company considered his political connections when naming him to their board. However, they kept him on when Trump became president. There is not a shred of evidence that he is guilty of any wrongdoing. After the way his family has been attacked, you wouldn’t expect Trump to go after a rival’s family. The man obviously has no class. He tried to tie Ted Cruz’s father to the Kennedy assassination.
Biden was the point man for all matters relating to Ukraine. I’m sure he knew about his son’s position. Not recusing himself was certainly an error in judgment.
Corruption was widespread in Ukraine. The United States and other countries were working to clean it up. They were putting pressure on Ukraine to fire their lead prosecutor. Biden threatened to pull some aid. There had been an investigation relating to the company his son was associated with. I seriously doubt Biden was even aware of it.
Both Trump and Biden exercised poor judgement. Of the lapses, I believe Trump’s was the more serious of the two. Based on what we know now, neither man did anything that approaches high crimes and misdemeanors.
