Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, who served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, is now firmly under the spotlight

Surging presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren was put on the spot on Wednesday when asked if she would allow her hypothetical vice president’s son to serve on the board of a foreign company.

Since the White House released the transcript of the phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensk, the content not only revealed no wrongdoing but also put eyes on the former vice president and 2020 hopeful Joe Biden's possible corruption.

When a reporter asked Warren the question, she stumbled and waffled.

“No,” Warren told the reporter.

Warren then paused uncomfortably to reconsider her answer.

When a reporter asked Warren if she would have a Vice president' son on the board of a foreign company , she stumbled and waffled.

"I don’t know. I mean I’d have to go back and look at the details.” 

The reporter's question was in context to Warren's pledge to end corruption.

Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, who served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, is now firmly under the spotlight as Democrats consider what to make of the situation.

Hunter Biden served on he company’s board while the former vice president served in the White House.

The Transcript aftermath

The newly released transcript of the call shows Trump seeking a review of Biden family dealings in Ukraine; the document does not show Trump explicitly leveraging US aid as part of a quid pro quo - an allegation Democrats cited when pressing forward with the president's impeachment.

The document, declassified on Tuesday by the president, indicates that the phone call took place July 25 from 9:03 a.m. to 9:33 a.m and was placed by Trump from the White House residence.

On Wednesday, Neon Nettle reported that Democrats wrote a letter to the Ukraine Government in 2018, demanding Ukrainian officials continue investigating US President Donald Trump.

Democratic Senators Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Dick Durbin (D-IL), and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) urged Ukraine to investigate Trump for claims of alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.

But since the conclusion of the Mueller report, the conspiracy proved to be non-existent.

On Tuesday ouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump after mounting pressure from democrats and particularly Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The announcement is a dramatic move for the Democrats.

Pelosi said, "the president must be held accountable" for the "betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and the betrayal of the integrity of our elections."
