What happened and why is it important for the outcome of the US presidential election?The recordings of conversations between senior officials of the Obama administration (Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry) and President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, held in 2015-2016, published on May 19, caused a real scandal.
No, the Maidan Witness Sect, of course, knew about the close relationship between their government and the White House – but they were rather proud of that relationship because they thought Poroshenko and Obama would resolve all issues in an atmosphere of freedom. , equality and brotherhood.
However, the published recordings show only one atmosphere – “whatever you command”. Poroshenko climbs Joseph Biden, tries to flatter and get favor, asked him for orders to govern Ukraine. “Revolution of Dignity” in Kiev took place in the name of such dignity?

As for the United States, the reaction there is different. The American media (which is almost entirely for the Democratic Party and against Trump) is trying in every way to cover up or distort the event. Because, as they rightly understand, these films and everything that follows them can become the lid of the political coffin that will cover Biden and the entire Democratic Party of the United States just in time for the 2020 presidential election.
These elections will be difficult for the Democratic Party. Liberals were burying Trump, blowing up several information whistles at once – but for now, Trump looks much better than Biden. And in a biological and political sense.
To date, the situation is as follows. Yes, Joe Biden is 4.7 percent ahead of Trump in a nationwide poll. However, in the United States, as you know, there are no general elections – each state has a certain number of voters (their number depends on the population) and they all go to the candidate who won in that state – even if he wins by 1%. Even today, Biden is likely to get 183 votes.
Trump has 125 in his account – and almost 230 votes are still in the states, which have not yet decided. Given that Democrats have more votes at the start of the campaign than Republicans by default (much of the densely populated states in the east and northeast are traditionally democratic, plus California, which is the largest with 55 votes), the advantage Biden in front of Trump is not significant.
According to bookmakers, this does not matter at all – those who are responsible for their predictions with their money are more likely to bet on Trump’s victory.
While Biden, whose mainstay in his image is simply moral stability and personal decency, is extremely vulnerable. Not only because of his misconduct (and there are already accusations that he sexually harassed his employees), but also because of the actions of his son – Hunter Biden, who is now called a “time bomb” for his father’s campaign.
According to Jordan, they were all part of Burisma’s scheme to use its ties to the Democratic Party to avoid an investigation by both Ukrainian legal authorities and the US authorities.
