A dark Ukrainian affair
Donald Trump "Makes the grotesque choice of telling lies rather than the truth and placing one's personal interest above that of the country", immediately denounced Joe Biden's team. His son Hunter, a lawyer and financier, sat on the watchdog committee of a Ukrainian gas group and invested in China when his father was vice president of Barack Obama. He has never been worried by the justice of these countries.

Gone are the days when he was ironic about a 'Joke' who did not deserve to be stopped. From now on, he is eruptive against " bullshit " Democrats, denounces a " Rebellion ", evokes risks of " civil war ".
On Thursday morning, he launched a new salvo on Twitter against the elected Democrat Adam Schiff who oversees the investigation against him. "Schiff is a thug who should resign (at least!)", he wrote, after suggesting two days ago to judge him for "Treason".
