No he was not. He was attempting to get them to state publicly that they were investigating Burisma and the Biden role in it. Ambassador Sondland made it clear in his testimony that Trump did not care whether any actual investigation ever went forward, he just wanted the appearance of scandal with which to smear his political opponents.
And there was something fishy about that deal, given Biden Junior's lack of experience and inability to speak the language - why were they employing him and paying him so much? Is that not a legitimate subject of public interest?
Well, as you noted about Trump's actions, such placements on the boards of corporations are legion. They are made to establish connections and influence investors. I suggest that you do an analysis all the boards of all the businesses in all the sectors of any economy, and you will find that a majority of the board members have no background or experience in the field. For example, I have been added to at least two separate non-profit corporation boards, one of an acting ensemble, the other of a youth hostel. In both cases, I did not have ANY requisite experience in either field. However, I was an experienced activist, a trained economist, and had a number of connections of influence in the community. Corporations add members to their boards for any number of reasons....often, one is NOT required to have a background in the specific area of operations. So, I think your assumptions are erroneous. Just look at the tangled sets of boards upon which the hellspawn of the mango shitgibbon are on....Cheeses, those morons are in over their heads almost everywhere they get involved. If we're going to investigate Hunter Biden, let's just open up the investigation to include all the children of all of the members of the current administration, indeed, the entire government. We need to root out the rampant nepotism which corrupts our governance. I'm all for that. But, for the moment, the Hunter Biden accusations are naught but an attempt to divert from their own crimes. It's nothing but a bunch of handwaving and 'whataboutism'. It is bullshit.
You evidently missed the testimony given by George Kent.
And, Dr. Fiona Hill repeated essentially the same thing in her testimony, only with a lot more sinister allusions....You might want to review the entire testimony of both Dr. Hill and Mr. Holmes before the committee. It seems that, according to Dr. Hill, you are "advancing a fictional narrative promulgated and propagated by Russian security services". Kudos.
Who foreign corporations place on their board of directors might well be of interest to the public. As would the make-up of each and every private corporation in the country and worldwide. But, for some reason, I suspect you will run in to a fair amount of resistance to subjecting every addition to every private corporation board of directors to the kind of scrutiny you're alluding to here. I suspect that most private corporations would tell you to stuff it; they'll appoint who they see fit and everybody else can lump it, as it is none of your business. As it is, there seems to be an entire segment of the media dedicated to this kind of bullshit...the business news people. Much of this information is already readily available, thanks to government registration requirements, it is just that there is so much of it that most of 'the public' has no farking interest in. Even those who are interested and do follow it find it overwhelming and instead seek to understand only portions of it. So...Good luck with that.
