Biden Corruption: Trickle Of Information Becomes Flow Becomes Flood Becomes Avalanche

•, Francis Menton

It was September 20, 2019 that the Wall Street Journal reported the existence of a so-called "whistleblower" complaint, asserting that on a telephone call in July of that year, President Trump had "pressured" the new President of Ukraine to investigate allegations of money laundering involving Joe and Hunter Biden. On September 23, 2019, as reported in the New York Post, Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani responded by asserting that some $3 million had been paid to Biden's son Hunter from Ukraine. Over the next couple of weeks, various journalists (all from the right) put together relatively detailed timelines of the activities of Hunter Biden in Ukraine. (Here is one from Jim Geraghty of National Review on September 30, 2019.) Meanwhile, the "whistleblower" allegations turned into the impeachment inquiry, that continued until it ultimately cratered with Trump's acquittal in the Senate on February 5, 2020.
