Joe Biden's Ukraine narrative was upended during Monday's “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Fox News host Tucker Carlson presented his audience with a photo of the former vice president and his son Hunter golfing in the Hamptons with Devon Archer, an executive of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings.

Hunter had been serving on Burisma's board while the company was under investigation. It was a lucrative position, too, with Hunter reportedly earning hundreds of thousands of dollars. At the time, Vice President Biden reportedly tried to get the prosecutor in charge of the investigation fired. He's also claimed that he has "never spoken" to his son about his overseas business dealings. But the above photo makes that hard to believe.
“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden told Fox News last month. “I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him why is he on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader. You should be looking at Trump.”
While the whistleblower complaint against President Trump raised concerns about his asking a foreign leader to interfere in our elections and investigate Biden, it simultaneously raised questions about Biden's shady Ukraine ties. Both sides have jumped on the scandal. Democrats used it to launch an impeachment inquiry, and Republicans have cut a new ad accusing Biden of quid pro quo. The committee gave him a new nickname, "Quid Pro Joe."
