Answer to question about why Hunter Biden got a job with Ukrainian gas company was inexplicable?
During Wednesday's impeachment hearings, Steve Castor, House Intelligence Committee counsel for the minority, asked Ambassador Taylor a rather simple question about Hunter Biden and his position at Burisma, that he couldn't (or perhaps refused) to answer, resulting in perhaps the most awkward silence I've ever seen in such a hearing.The followup question could have been who did Barisma call when they ran into trouble with the State Department. Apparently, their first call was to Hunter Biden he jumped in to help. He was being paid to influence the Obama administration. That is why Joe Biden demanded that the Ukraine prosecutor be fired.CASTOR: Ambassador Taylor, do you know whether Hunter Biden offers anything other than the fact that his dad's the former vice president...
AMB. TAYLOR: I don't—
CASTOR: Or at the time was the vice president.
AMB. TAYLOR: I have no knowledge of Hunter Biden—
CASTOR: But you agree it raises questions?
AMB. TAYLOR: (five seconds of silence)
Ambassador Taylor is a key witness, a star witness, if you will, of House Democrats, whose testimony is based not on direct knowledge, but on hearsay. Yet, he couldn't admit that Hunter Biden being given a position on the board of Burisma (despite no relevant experience, familiarity with the language, and not having anything to offer besides being the son of the vice president) raised serious, legitimate questions is astounding.
