A more accurate headline is that Trump is suddenly interesting in finding dirt on Hunter Biden again. Since there has yet to be ANY evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden, the question of why he should now be under scrutiny comes to the forefront.
Of course, his dad will probably be running against the corrupt Donald Trump. There is no other reason.

It is so interesting that the author of this posting, Tristan Justice, writes for a rag called The Federalist.
The Federalist was founded by a serial plagiarizer.
The Federalist has supported writers who believe in child molestation.
The Federalist and anyone connected with them, such as Tristan Justice, should be disbelieved IN THEIR ENTIRETY.
This is laughable...especially when no one stated if Hunter and Joe broke any existing laws. This also overlooks how much cover and airtime the media has provided for trump...and not calling him out for his lies, and corrupt actions as president, or ties with dictators.
You are right Panj, the right makes up objects to chase and their conspiracies they say are true and want us to believe...but that does not make them true!
Plus they never provide evidence, just false accusations and opinions.
jimc91: Nothing has been “resurrected” however, of a continuous investigation that started well before Joe Biden’s run for president that never stopped after Trump’s exoneration or Biden’s February losses.
A: As most of us know, just saying that something is true doesn't make it true. Please provide credible information about any "continuous investigation".
B: Does anyone out there believe that if some circumstance caused Joe Biden to drop out of the race the investigation into Hunter/Burisma would continue.....................or end abruptly? My money says it would end abruptly.
Media Suddenly Interested In Running Interference For Hunter Biden Again
After weeks of ignoring the series of scandals surrounding former Vice President Joe Biden’s son that surfaced during President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, reporters are suddenly interested again as Biden reclaims his frontrunner status for the Democratic presidential nomination.
The focus on Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, which never received adequate media attention in the first place, tapered off throughout the president’s impeachment trial and became nearly absent by the time Senate proceedings got underway. In the same week Trump was acquitted, Joe Biden’s presidential hopes began to plummet following a poor performance in the Iowa caucuses. Biden’s chances of becoming the nominee only got worse throughout February with each state until the South Carolina primary on Saturday rescuing a sinking campaign.
Now that Biden is back on top in the wake of an extraordinary political comeback capturing 10 states on Super Tuesday, including several he never even campaigned in, many in the media are suddenly reminded that his son will likely remain an issue going forward.
While his father was dictating U.S. policy towards Ukraine at the Obama White House in 2014, Hunter Biden was hired on the board of a Ukraine energy company Burisma earning upwards of $50,000 a month despite no prior experience in the industry. A Federalist analysis of Hunter Biden’s pay reveals just how much Biden was being showered in excess compensation where board members of comparable corporations made only fraction of Biden’s benefits.
Several questionable transactions with Chinese business leaders have also raised suspicions about Hunter Biden’s work overseas.
In 2013, Hunter Biden boarded Air Force Two with his vice president father on a trip to China and arranged meetings with Chinese businessmen. Soon after, a sequence of events followed to benefit Hunter Biden’s firm, BHR leading to its business license being approved in the east Asian nation and a joint acquisition of the Michigan motor company Henniges with a Chinese corporation marking “the biggest Chinese investment into US automotive manufacturing assets to date.”
Hunter Biden’s work abroad has drawn scrutiny from senators since 2017 when Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin opened up a probe into Biden’s conflicts of interest.
Some in the media however, appear to have forgotten about investigations into Hunter Biden’s conduct altogether, tying it exclusively to Republican efforts to defend Trump from impeachment or to a political effort launched by the GOP to derail Joe Biden’s campaign. Some have even characterized the ongoing Senate probe into Hunter Biden’s conflicts leveraging familial ties overseas as resurgent, making it seem as if the proceedings that began prior to Joe Biden’s entrance into the presidential race ever stopped after Biden’s apparent collapse.
“Senate GOP ramps up investigations as Biden surges,” read a headlinein CNN on Wednesday, co-authored by network congressional correspondent Manu Raju. The headline was later replicated in a chyrondisplayed on the channel Thursday afternoon.
“Republicans Dive Back Into Hunter Biden Investigations, Saying Voters Deserve It,” fired off the Daily Beast.
“Mitt Romney tells reporters there’s ‘no question’ that the GOP’s resurrected investigation ‘looking into Burisma and Hunter Biden appears political, and I think people are tired of these kind of political investigation,” tweeted NBC reporter Geoff Bennett, emphasis ours.
Nothing has been “resurrected” however, of a continuous investigation that started well before Joe Biden’s run for president that never stopped after Trump’s exoneration or Biden’s February losses.
Of course, Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney also voted to convict Trump in what was purely a political stunt, so he can save the lecturing.
