Rep. Ted Lieu — a Democrat congressman from California — turns out to be a fan of capitalism after all. Hey, if a Ukrainian energy company wants to pay the son of America’s vice president money to sit on its board, that’s perfectly normal and OK. At least that’s what Lieu told The Hill Wednesday.
Question: "The underlying problem here was of course Hunter Biden receiving $50,000 a month from a Ukrainian energy company. Do you think that that is evidence of corrupt behavior?"

This is my congressman, who is perfectly OK with the son of the Democrat vice president, who got booted out of the Navy for drug use, getting paid $50,000 a month by sketchy Ukrainian foreigners for a no-show job.
What a turd. https://t.co/4NHIUs65fw

so, if Trump son Baron who has about as much experience in oil and gas as Biden's offspring was put on the board of a Saudi oil company this putz would find it OK?

Watching them to do cartwheels to excuse Biden's confession that he extorted Ukraine's officials on Obama's blessing..same President who allegedly let our election be tampered with, and why this is all Trump's fault.
Predictable as weather. These people are insanely slimy.

Then he would have no problem with the Trump kids doing the same. Cool

Hey @DonaldJTrumpJr feel free to sit on any board you’d like, Ted Lieu says it’s okay! ??

People with no relevant experience don’t normally get to sit on the boards of foreign companies never mind receive $50,000 a month in return. What is that per meeting $100,000 ? $150,0000 ?

A curious nation wonders how many family members of politicians are sitting on corporate boards, collecting money for doing next to nothing, despite having no real qualifications for the position they have.
— Big Apple Infidel ? (@BigAppleInfidel) September 25, 2019
People with no expertise in the industry at all are chosen to sit on boards in foreign countries where they can't even speak the language?
Yes. Yes, they are. And they are chosen for their political influence.
That's the point.

Ted Lieu was able to say
"No. People sit on boards and they get monetary payments."
with a straight face.
Can my daughter get that job?
— mikeC (@mikeAtMidpush) September 25, 2019
Can I sit on the board and rake in 50 grand a year? I have no board experience and no crack pipe, but I do spend money well.

It is absurd to try an impeach Trump, for doing less, and not even consider prosecuting the Bidens, for provably doing more.
Only a partisan hack would think otherwise.

No one said @tedlieu was the brightest knife in the drawer. But, seriously, he's really stupid. If he knew anything about Boards of Directors in businesses, he'd know that directors are picked either for their expertise in the industry or their POSITION OF POWER/CLOUT i.e. BIDEN

Rep. Ted Lieu: "No. It's ok when we do it."

Seems like corruption at first sight.
Theres an easy way to check though. Does Hunter Biden have an energy background or education with a relevent degree? Or did he invest a lot of capital?
If not then it sounds like he was hired for being a biden, which is corruption.

Sign me up then. Preferably in a business sector I know absolutely nothing about.

Huh. I wonder what boards Mr. Lieu sits on and what compensation he can command.

@tedlieu kinda weak sauce here

Lmao. Ted always looks like a little kid who put on daddy’s suit. Not sure if it’s his obvious immaturity and lack of subject knowledge, or the deer in headlights looks he gives.
