Certainly not for lack of trying, though.

The number of investigations into Democrats by Republicans highly motivated to find wrongdoing...and coming up empty...is turning into a mountain.

The report delivered on Wednesday appeared to be little more than a rehashing of unproven allegations that echoed a Russian disinformation campaign.

WASHINGTON — An election-year investigation by Senate Republicans into corruption allegations against Joseph R. Biden Jr., the Democratic presidential nominee, and his son, Hunter, involving Ukraine found no evidence of improper influence or wrongdoing by the former vice president, bringing to a close a highly politicized inquiry its leaders had hoped would tarnish President Trump’s rival.

The report asserted that Hunter Biden traded off his father’s name to close lucrative business deals around the world, and that his work for Burisma Holdings, a corrupt Ukrainian energy company while the former vice president was directing American policy toward Kyiv gave the appearance of a conflict of interest and alarmed some in the State Department. But the 87-page document released on Wednesday by the Senate Homeland Security Committee contained no evidence that the former vice president improperly manipulated American policy toward Ukraine or committed any other misdeed.

So in other words, taxpayer dollars used for a partisan witch hunt against a private citizen that yielded absolutely nothing at all.

The Republicans should not have gone down this path. This is egg on their faces, and the smart people know it's inappropriate for the US Senate to investigate the son of a political candidate during an election cycle.

I'll take the pro-Biden campaign ad, for what it's worth.

Good news. I'm glad that there was no evidence of corruption by Biden. And I'm glad that the GOP members here have more integrity than Democrats who outright fabricated Russia-gate and impeached over Ukraine. Makes me feel better about voting a straight GOP ticket for the first time ever.

Remind me when the Democrats used the power of the Senate or Congress to investigate a private citizen not tied to any campaign or administration.

Wasn't the Durham report supposed to be out like months ago, with indictments against Obama and Joe Biden and Strzok and Page and Comey and Clapper and everyone else under the sun?

Since that investigation, did not prove that he was guilty then it is absolutely imperative to hold a subsequent investigation to both prove that that investigation was bogusl AND to find out why the previous investigation did not reveal **T*H*E** **T*R*U*T*H**;

The most important takeaway here is that he was *NOT* exonerated for corruption. He could still be charged.

So many lies, I can't parse them all. It was a fabrication. There was no collusion, and they knew it.

Another failed QAnon prediction. They're batting right about .000 now.

You don't remember your post? Interesting. You whined (like all Trump lovers do) about the impeachment of Trump, which for the uneducated among us isn't the same thing at all. Trump is President. Hunter Biden is and always was a private citizen. His father is currently a private citizen.

You need some education, obviously.

Like Trump wasn't exonerated (read the Mueller report) and could still be charged?
