Things are not looking good for Joe Biden.
Democrats are pushing this Ukraine thing to attack Trump, but the more people talk about it, the more Joe Biden and his son come up.
Now we are learning that a former prosecutor in Ukraine said that he was told to back off of his probe into the firm Biden’s son is liked to.

Ex-Ukraine prosecutor said he was told to back off probe of Biden-linked firm, files show
The fired prosecutor at the center of the Ukraine controversy said during a private interview with President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani earlier this year that he was told to back off an investigation involving a natural gas firm that was linked to Joe Biden’s son, according to details of that interview that were handed over to Congress by the State Department’s inspector general Wednesday.
Fox News obtained a copy of Giuliani’s notes from his January 2019 interview with fired Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin in which he claimed that his “investigations stopped out of fear of the United States.”
“Mr. Shokin attempted to continue the investigations but on or around June or July of 2015, the U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt told him that the investigation has to be handled with white gloves, which according to Mr. Shokin, that implied do nothing,” the notes from the interview stated. The notes also claimed Shokin was told Biden had held up U.S. aid to Ukraine over the investigation.
To make matters even worse for Biden, a growing number of voters are siding with Trump in believing that Biden is guilty of wrongdoing.

‘Warning sign’ for Biden on Ukraine controversy, as poll shows plurality of voters believes Trump allegations
As President Trump battles back against arguably the biggest controversy to rock his presidency, a new national poll also points to potential warning signs for one of his top 2020 rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden.
A Monmouth University survey suggests that Biden – one of the co-frontrunners in the Democratic race to face off next year against the president – could suffer some political damage from the Ukrainian allegations that sparked the Democrat-controlled House to formally launch an impeachment inquiry into Trump.
The survey, released Wednesday, indicates that a plurality of voters believed Trump’s accusations against Biden on that issue.
This is probably going to get even uglier.
Biden has been awfully silent about the entire issue but he is going to have to address it at some point.
