Joe Biden Bragged That He Intimidated Ukraine Into Firing a Prosecutor... Who Happened to Be Investigating a Company Which Employed His Son as a Board Member

Now this looks a lot like collusion.

John Solomon:

In his own words, with video cameras rolling, Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didnít immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.


"I said, 'You're not getting the billion.' I'm going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: 'I'm leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, youíre not getting the money,'" Biden recalled telling Poroshenko.

"Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time," Biden told the Council on Foreign Relations event, insisting that President Obama was in on the threat.

But Ukrainian officials tell me there was one crucial piece of information that Biden must have known but didn't mention to his audience: The prosecutor he got fired was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into the natural gas firm Burisma Holdings that employed Biden's younger son, Hunter, as a board member.

Will Jerry Nadler investigate this? How about Rachel Maddow?

I bet they will. After all, they tell me this collusion investigation party is just getting started:
