Will the cries of “Russia, Russia, Russia!” fall awkwardly silent as Democrats work through the mental calculus of this one?

Russian President Vladimir Putin has seemingly put Democrats in a bit of a bind here. Speaking Sunday, Putin made clear that he sees no wrong doing in Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Ukraine.

Putin’s remarks were in response to comments made by Donald Trump during the final presidential debate against Joe Biden.

“Yes, in Ukraine, he had or maybe still has a business, I don’t know. It doesn’t concern us. It concerns the Americans and the Ukrainians. But, well, yes, he had at least one company, which he practically headed up, and judging from everything he made good money. I don’t see anything criminal about this, at least we don’t know anything [about this being criminal],” Putin said.

So, it seems that the Russians are on the side of Hunter Biden when it comes to the issue of Burisma, which naturally puts Democrats in a bit of a bind.

Russia. The country they point to at every opportunity. Russia. The country they believe says the opposite of what is true at every moment. Russia.

The American people have spent the past four years hearing nothing from them other than that two syllable word. Democrats have even gone so far as to claim, without evidence, that the laptop itself is part of a Russian-backed conspiracy.

So what will they say now? Don’t expect anything from the Biden campaign on this matter though, they’ll just be calling another lid.
