The timeline here goes something like this:

  • Trump wants Ukraine to re-open investigation into Joe Biden’s son.
  • New York Times obligingly writes long, detailed story about Hunter Biden’s Ukraine adventures.
  • Co-author of story turns out to be so close to the new Ukrainian president that one month later she is rewarded with a job as his spokesperson.

I dunno. Maybe this is all coincidence. But it smells a little fishy, doesn’t it?
