    A newly unearthed letter from 2016 shows that Republican senators pushed for reforms to Ukraine's prosecutor general's office and judiciary, echoing calls then-Vice President Joe Biden made at the time.

    CNN's KFile found a February 2016 bipartisan letter signed by several Republican senators that urged then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to "press ahead with urgent reforms to the Prosecutor General's office and judiciary."

    The letter shows that addressing corruption in Ukraine's Prosecutor General's office had bipartisan support in the US and further undercuts a baseless attack made by President Donald Trump and his allies that Biden pressured the Ukrainian government to fire then Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin to stop investigations into a Ukrainian natural gas company that his son, Hunter Biden, sat on the board of. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe or Hunter Biden, nor is it clear whether Hunter was under investigation at all.


    Trump called the 2016 dismissal of the Ukrainian prosecutor "unfair" in his July 25 call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, saying, "A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved," according to the rough transcript of the phone call.
    The 2016 letter, sent by members of the Senate Ukraine Caucus, was signed by Republican Sens. Rob Portman, Mark Kirk and Ron Johnson, as well as Democratic Sens. Dick Durbin, Jeanne Shaheen, Chris Murphy, Sherrod Brown, and Richard Blumenthal and focused on longstanding issues of corruption in Ukraine and urged reforms of the government.
    "Succeeding in these reforms will show Russian President Vladimir Putin that an independent, transparent and democratic Ukraine can and will succeed," the letter reads. "It also offers a stark alternative to the authoritarianism and oligarchic cronyism prevalent in Russia. As such, we respectfully ask that you address the serious concerns raised by Minister Abromavičius. We similarly urge you to press ahead with urgent reforms to the Prosecutor General's Office and judiciary. The unanimous adoption by the Cabinet of Ministers of the Basic Principles and Action Plan is a good step."
    Kirk is no longer in Congress. But Johnson signed onto a letter with Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley last week to Attorney General Bill Barr asking him to investigate, in part, allegations surrounding Biden and Ukraine. Johnson's office did not respond to a request for comment. Portman's office did not comment


    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

        Biden used his office and US aid to pressure Ukraine into firing a prosecutor that was going after his son's company:

        Biden says it on camera that he had the guy removed by using aid as leverage.

        People need to put the country before party.

          Obviously, the Democrats involved will all have to be publicly investigated and then removed from their positions...right?

          I'm certain that the Democrats are not going to claim that they have a different standard of performance to meet than the President when so many of them are running for that very office.

          Looks like Trump will be unopposed for office.

            TDS is now the leading cause of blindness among Democrats.

              It happens all the time

              And seeking dirt about Manafort who is linked to a country like Russia that had already cyber-attacked the DNC? .Natural



              A president seeking dirt by using his presidential power to create deals with foreign leaders?

              Sorry, it is an impeachable offence

              The rest is smoke and mirrors.
              How ironic, you talking about "smoke and mirrors".

              Impeachment? So you keep telling us. And yet it wasn't impeachment for the Clinton when they received Chinese election donations, or when she violated security regulations. And it's OK for Biden to threaten the Ukrainian government to force them to drop criminal charges against his son, which is extortion by a public official who did not have government approval. You need to get your story straight and stop obsessing over Trump. He's the
              least
              of your worries.

                Sorry, but the FBI and the FEC under the Trump administration had all the time to uncover any Chinese election donations. Now, hours after your CIC pooped his pants in public brining forward a new scenario against Biden and China, I do not care about what you think. If there is anybody that should be investigated in China, it should be Trump;s daughter. Ohh, and we need to see also the transcripts of her conversation with the Chinese
