Trump urges Ukraine and China to probe Bidens

US President Donald Trump has publicly called on Ukraine and China to investigate Joe Biden and his son

Ex-Vice-President Joe Biden is a Democratic frontrunner in the 2020 presidential race, and a central figure in the push to impeach Mr Trump

China should start an investigation into the Bidens, said Mr Trump, in reference to Mr Biden’s son, Hunter

The Democrats accuse the US president of dangling military aid as a way to press Ukraine to dig dirt on Mr Biden

A 25 July phone call between Mr Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky triggered an intelligence community whistleblower complaint and the impeachment inquiry

But Mr Trump says he has done nothing wrong and the inquiry, which could culminate in a congressional attempt to remove him from office, is a witch hunt

? What has Trump accused the Bidens of doing

Mr Trump has accused Mr Biden and his son Hunter of corruption in their political and business dealings in Ukraine and China, without offering specific evidence

When Hunter Biden joined Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma in 2014, questions were raised about a potential conflict of interest for his father

Ukraine was undergoing a political transition after its pro-Russia president was forced out of office, while the elder Biden was the Obama administration’s point man for the Eastern European country

In 2016, Joe Biden pushed the Ukrainian government to fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, whose office had been scrutinising the oligarch owner of Burisma

In a speech last year at a think tank, Mr Biden boasted of having forced Mr Shokin out by threatening to withhold a billion-dollar loan guarantee to Ukraine

Mr Trump and his allies accuse Mr Biden of acting to protect his son. However, other Western officials and major financers of Ukraine’s government also wanted Mr Shokin dismissed because he was seen as a barrier to anti-corruption efforts
