    I went back and looked at their board members. Looks like most are former CEO's of Fortune 500 companies. Now I'm sure a few of them have probably smoked crack at strip clubs and impregnated strippers (who hasn't, right?) while fornicating with their brother's widow, but other than that, I'm not sure I see the similarity between these folks and young Mr. Biden.

    At one of my first jobs out of college my boss and I were talking about job hunting. He told me that unfortunately in some cases it isn't what you know it is who you know.

    I don't know what all went in the decision to hire Hunter Biden, but I am fairly sure that my old bosses theory did come into play.

    So... all that being said, is it unreasonable to believe that something nefarious may have been going on, and... isn't that information something that the electorate should have about a candidate for the Presidency, and... is it wrong for the President of the US to look into the potential ethical failings of an opponent in an upcoming election? Now, if President Trump had said, "Get me dirt on Joe Biden or else", that would be a problem. It is my understanding that the President actually said "look into the dealings of Joe Biden and his son in Ukraine", which is fundamentally different from saying "make something up".

    We can all agree that there may be no currently known evidence of wrongdoing. It also shouldn't be difficult for us to agree that (under these circumstances) a willingness to commit and an expectation to commit wrongdoing was likey set by both parties.....if the need ever arose.

    I picked up a worker the other day working on a vacant lot neighbors had been using as an "airing yard". He got in the truck and before i put the truck in d, he said, "do you think i have something on my boot?" I felt just like trump talking to zelinsky when i replied, "you might want to get out and do a quick investigation!"

    Don't deny common sense regards,

    ps per a quick google search:

    How much do professionals with the title Board Member make at ExxonMobil? The average salary for the role of Board Member at ExxonMobil in Austin, Texas Area is $99,900. This salary estimate is based on salaries at similar companies submitted by LinkedIn members who have the title “Board Member” in Austin, Texas Area.
    Everyone always tries to clarify what Trump actually meant to defend him. I would say his words are pretty blunt. They speak for themselves. Besides, he is never wrong, so how could anyone misinterpret his own words?

    Do you really believe Trump wanted to investigate the Biden's because he really cared about corruption or because it would help in his re-election?

    It is the left attempting to "clarify" what Trump actually meant. Here is the transcript of the call in case you have never read it.

    Please feel free to tell us what Trump really meant, despite what he said.

    I don't think the two can be separated. By all appearances to me, hugh, poacher, rk and donald trump, the bidens are corrupt and have compromised themselves internationally. Trump is the one who could influence others to investigate the matter.

    If biden had ridden off into the sunset.....who cares? Since he is running for president our republic needs protection from him as a corrupt, compromised candidate.

    In protecting our republic trump creates a byproduct of benefit in an election. I aint got a problem with it.

    The precedent is now set.. Any future President can now ask for an investigation into his political rival for his own benefit..

    However, if hunter was a "senior exec" with daily responsibilities and not just a "board member", then my analysis of his comp is inaccurate. In that case i owe him and rtf potus an apology.
    Everyone on the board are getting north of $320,000.
