If you want to vote for him because you think he would be a good president, go right ahead. But you’re fooling yourself if you think he’s electable, since it’s obvious how Republicans are going to attack him (boldface mine):
The broad outlines of how the Bidens’ roles intersected in Ukraine have been known for some time. The former vice president’s campaign said that he had always acted to carry out United States policy without regard to any activities of his son, that he had never discussed the matter with Hunter Biden and that he learned of his son’s role with the Ukrainian energy company from news reports.
But new details about Hunter Biden’s involvement, and a decision this year by the current Ukrainian prosecutor general to reverse himself and reopen an investigation into Burisma, have pushed the issue back into the spotlight just as the senior Mr. Biden is beginning his 2020 presidential campaign…
Mr. Giuliani has discussed the Burisma investigation, and its intersection with the Bidens, with the ousted Ukrainian prosecutor general and the current prosecutor. He met with the current prosecutor multiple times in New York this year. The current prosecutor general later told associates that, during one of the meetings, Mr. Giuliani called Mr. Trump excitedly to brief him on his findings, according to people familiar with the conversations.
Mr. Giuliani declined to comment on any such phone call with Mr. Trump, but acknowledged that he has discussed the matter with the president on multiple occasions. Mr. Trump, in turn, recently suggested he would like Attorney General William P. Barr to look into the material gathered by the Ukrainian prosecutors — echoing repeated calls from Mr. Giuliani for the Justice Department to investigate the Bidens’ Ukrainian work and other connections between Ukraine and the United States.
Mr. Giuliani said he got involved because he was seeking to counter the Mueller investigation with evidence that Democrats conspired with sympathetic Ukrainians to help initiate what became the special counsel’s inquiry.
This won’t DESTROY! Biden, but it will muddy the waters around Trump’s corruption. ‘Both sides are corrupt’ and so on. Nominating a candidate with investigations hanging over his head doesn’t seem electable, considering 2016. Don’t think for a moment that Attorney General Barr isn’t enough of a hack to investigate Biden, especially if the Senate Republicans decide to hold hearings.
If you think Biden would be the best president of all of the candidates, then by all means, support him. But I guarantee, if he becomes the nominee, we’ll be hearing much more about ‘Ukraine Joe.”
