Senator Lindsey Graham weighed-in Monday on the widening political scandal surrounding Hunter Biden and a Ukrainian energy firm; saying his business relationships “don’t pass the smell test.”
“I love Joe Biden as a person but we are not going to give a pass to what is obviously a conflict of interest. I believe Hunter Biden’s association on the Burisma board doesn’t pass the smell test. If a Republican was in the same position, they’d certainly be investigated!” posted Graham on social media.

Graham stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night after another day of the Democrats’ public impeachment inquiry; saying the whole process is quickly “becoming a joke” at the American people’s expense.
“I would say check-mate, game over,” said Hannity.
“It makes no sense that he knows this now and didn’t know it then. This whole thing is becoming a joke… The Vice President said he never talked to Sondland about anything. Why didn’t he mention this deal the first time he testified?” asked Graham.
“This doesn’t add up. What are these phone calls about? I want to know if there are any transcripts between the Vice President and the President of the Ukraine,” he added.
BIDEN GOES OFF: Joe Snaps at Reporters for Asking Questions About Hunter Biden
Former Vice President Joe Biden snapped at journalists on the campaign trail in recent days, with reporters increasingly asking questions over his son Hunter’s overseas business deals -particularly in regards to the Ukraine.
“I wonder whether you have a comment on this report on a court filing out of Arkansas that your son Hunter just made you a grandfather again,” asked Fox News Channel’s Peter Doocy.
“No. That’s a private matter, I have no comment. But only you would ask that. You’re a good man. You’re a good man. Classy,” fired-back Biden.
“How many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealing,” asked another reporter.
“Here’s what I know. I know Trump deserves to be investigated, he’s violating every basic norm of a president!” Biden deflected.

HANNITY: New Documents Show Hunter Biden was Peddling His Influence
Damning new documents show former Vice President Joe Biden’s son -Hunter Biden- peddled his influence during his father’s time in the White House, according to new material obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday, Sean ripped Biden’s blatant influence-peddling; saying his company used his position to leverage favors from the Obama administration.
“Hunter Biden was in fact peddling his influence, we have access to damning new documents. Hunter’s company used Hunter Biden -the Vice President’s son at the time- to try and win special favors from the Obama administration,” said Hannity.
“Representatives from the company were communicating with the Obama State Department; lobbying the Obama administration to end corruption allegations against their company,” he added.
