President Donald Trump has repeatedly accused his Democratic White House challenger Joe Biden of wrongdoing in regards to Ukraine and China while he was vice-president, which he denies.  The issue has resurfaced following a New York Post article about an alleged email in which an adviser from a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, apparently thanked Mr Biden's son, Hunter, for inviting him to meet his father.  Asked about the allegations, Joe Biden told a reporter it was a "smear campaign". No criminal activity has been proven, and no evidence has emerged that Mr Biden did anything to intentionally benefit his son.  Claims of influence-peddling are common in Washington DC and Mr Trump's children have also been accused of conflicts of interest in lucrative business deals overseas. They, too, deny wrongdoing.  Mr Biden will face Mr Trump, a Republican, in next week's presidential election. https //www bbc com/news/world-54553132 NBC 2020/11/10   Ukraine police close Biden probe initiated by ousted prosecutor:  Under Ukrainian law, anyone can go to court to request an investigation if the State Investigative Bureau declines to open one on its own.  By Veronika Melkozerova https //www nbcnews com/politics/politics-news/ukraine-police-closes-biden-probe-initiated-ousted- prosecutor-n1247320 USA Today 2020/10/21  Fact check: Biden leveraged $1B in aid to Ukraine to oust corrupt prosecutor, not to help his son.

The meme has been shared more than 9,000 times since Oct. 18. https //www usatoday com/story/news/factcheck/2020/10/21/fact-check-joe-biden-leveraged-ukraine-aid- oust-corrupt-prosecutor/5991434002/ Wallstreet Journal 2019/09/22  Bidens in Ukraine: An Explainer:  Former vice president led anticorruption efforts in country; his son served on board of Ukraine firm.  By Allan Cullison https://www.wsj.com/articles/bidens-anticorruption-effort-in-ukraine-overlapped-with-sons-work-in-country- 11569189782 KIEV, Ukraine—Joe Biden’s involvement with Ukraine and his son’s work in the country, which President Trump has repeatedly said should be investigated, began when the former vice president was serving as the Obama administration’s point man on relations with Ukraine and rooting out bureaucratic corruption. Soon after Moscow invaded the country in 2014 and annexed its peninsula of Crimea, Mr. Biden took a lead role in U.S. efforts to support the fragile government in Kiev. He shuttled back and forth to the Ukrainian capital,... Russia NBC Today 2020/10/30   Here's what happened when NBC News tried to report on the alleged Hunter Biden emails Analysis: Trump complains the media isn't reporting on Hunter Biden's emails. But NBC News met obstacles, including Rudy Giuliani, when it tried. By Ken Dilanian and Tom Winter https //www nbcnews com/politics/2020-election/here-s-what-happened-when-nbc-news-tried-report- alleged-n1245533 Excerpt:  But the Wall Street Journal and Fox News — among the only news organizations that have been given access to key documents — found that the emails and other records don’t make that case. Leaving aside the many questions about their provenance, the materials offered no evidence that Joe Biden played any role in his son’s dealings in China, let alone profited from them, both news organizations concluded…The lack of major new revelations is perhaps the biggest reason the story has not gotten traction, but not the only one. Among others: Most mainstream news organizations, including NBC News, have not been granted access to the documents. NBC News asked by email, text, phone call and certified mail, and was ultimately denied. https //www nbcnews com/politics/2020-election/here-s-what-happened-when-nbc-news-tried-report- alleged-n1245533 USA Today 2020/10/01  Fact check: Claims that Hunter Biden received $3.5M from Russia are unproven, lack context.  By Doug Stanglin https //www usatoday com/story/news/factcheck/2020/10/01/fact-check-unproven-claims-hunter-biden-got- 3-5-m-russia/3586861001/ Excerpt:  The claim: Hunter Biden received $3.5 million from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow During their first debate on Sept. 29, President Donald Trump charged that Hunter Biden, the son of rival former Vice President Joe Biden, had received $3.5 million from wife of Moscow's ex-mayor and demanded an investigation.  The president had raised the issue Sept. 27 in a news conference in which he said the allegations "are all questions that are very, very big on the internet."  The claim was also posted by a Facebook user on Sept. 26. "How did Robert Mueller do a 2 yr investigation on Russia and miss a $3.5 million payment to the Biden family?," the user wrote, adding "#askingforafriend."  Trump raised the issue of the purported Moscow payment several times during one segment of the first presidential debate, asking at one point, "What did he do to deserve it?"  The claim stems from an 87-page report — "Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns" — by the Republican majority on the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, chaired by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., and the Senate Committee on Finance, chaired by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. https //www usatoday com/story/news/factcheck/2020/10/01/fact-check-unproven-claims-hunter-biden-got- 3-5-m-russia/3586861001/ Updates:  2020/11/13  Page Ukraine-Bidens-Trump-etc. started
