While the media refuses to ask former Vice President Joe Biden about those sexual assault allegations, they have at least not forgotten about his Ukraine scandal. When Biden served as vice president, his son Hunter had a very lucrative position on the board of a corrupt Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings. The lead investigator on the case was mysteriously fired.
Biden has deflected questions about his son's work overseas, sometimes suggesting he knew nothing about it. Asked again on Tuesday about his son's work for Burisma, Biden gave another one of his cringe incoherent responses.

"No, I don't believe so at all. My son's business dealings were not anything where everybody that he's talking about, not even remotely, number one."

A rambling response is not going to cut it. The American people deserve answers. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has noted the double standard that if these questions were hanging over President Trump's head and his son had served for a corrupt Ukrainian gas company, the press would be tripping over themselves for answers.
"Does it make sense to hire the son of the guy in charge of the portfolio for the American government?" Graham said during Trump's impeachment trial this January.
Trump recently described his competition as "a sleepy guy in a basement in a house."
Biden has yet to address the Reade allegations.
