Facts prove the prosecutor Biden had removed was NOT prosecuting corruption. What prevents Republicans from understanding this?

Western leaders and institutions, as well as Ukrainian anti-corruption activists, viewed Shokin as corrupt and ineffective for failing to prosecute anybody of significance, and for protecting members of Yanukovych’s and Poroshenko’s circles.

When Shokin was fired in the spring of 2016, press reports explicitly linked his ouster to corruption.

Steven Pifer, a career foreign service officer who held positions in the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations, previously told PolitiFact that "virtually everyone" he knew in the U.S. government and virtually all non-governmental experts on Ukraine "felt that Shokin was not doing his job and should be fired."

"All decent people were in favor of Shokin's sacking," Anders Åslund, a resident fellow at the Atlantic Council told PolitiFact. "Biden led a Western/anticorruption consensus."

    Then why did Biden want him removed? Why would Biden care about him?

    Facts prove that the world is flat.

    There, I said it . . . it's on YAnswers - therefore it must be true.  

    You and Vidman would make a perfect couple - inflated egos and overblown self-importance do not an expert make.

    So what you are saying is that you admit that Biden uses his office to influence who and what the Ukrainian government was investigating.

    When Biden does it, it is a good thing. But if Trump does the same thing it is grounds for impeachment.

    Talk about a hypocrite....

      When Biden does it, BECAUSE IT IS IN THE INTEREST OF THE US, it is a good thing.
      When Trump does it, BECAUSE IT IS IN THE INTEREST OF TRUMP, it is illegal.

    What prevents them from understanding this is the complex nature of the issue. It's easier to grab onto simple concepts and sound bites.

    Years of brainwashing, and desperation to protect their cult leader, prevent Republicans from understanding this.
