Rush Limbaugh: Senate Report On Hunter Biden Validates Trump's Decision to Ask Ukraine For Help

On Wednesday morning, Senate Republicans released a bombshell report, showing that former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, had a long list of questionable actions including a multi-million dollar shady foreign payment from a prominent Russian elite.
According to conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh, the findings in the report vindicate President Trump's decision to reach out to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for help in potentially looking into the Biden's shady dealings.
The Daily Wire reports:
Trump had asked Zelensky to “look into” allegations that former Vice President Joe Biden under the Obama administration had pressured the Ukrainian government to fire its top prosecutor to keep him from investigating Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company that Hunter sat on the board of.
“The Senate report on Hunter Biden and Burisma, you know what it does, among many other things? It proves that Trump was right asking the Ukrainians to investigate Biden. And they impeached Trump over this? He was dead-on right asking the Ukrainians to investigate Biden,” Limbaugh said, according to a transcript of his radio show.
The report, based in part on U.S. government records and interviews with current and former government officials, shows that many Obama administration officials working on U.S.-Ukraine relations were uneasy about Hunter’s place on Burisma’s board. At the time, Joe Biden was leading U.S. communications with Ukraine. The report also outlined a host of other business dealings Hunter was involved in with foreign entities, including in China.
"This report makes it abundantly clear that it goes way beyond ethical violations, that we’ve got serious criminal violations that occurred here between Joe Biden, his son Hunter, the government of Ukraine — and we’ve known this," Limbaugh said. "This is the crazy thing. We’ve known this. Joe Biden’s own words! Remember, they tried to indict Trump for trying to meddle in the internal affairs of Ukraine."
He continued, "Trump calls the guy on his perfect phone call, the president of Ukraine, and suggests that he could be very helpful if he would start an investigation into the Bidens, that Hunter Biden was dirty in his arrangement with Burisma, an energy company. He ends up being paid millions of dollars. He doesn’t know the first thing about energy!"
"It was a clear quid pro quo gig that Hunter Biden got without any qualifications simply ’cause he’s the vice president’s son," Limbaugh added. "It got so bad that Ukraine was in the process of prosecuting Hunter Biden, and then Joe Biden, as vice president, went over there. And we know what comes next because Joe Biden bragged about it in a speech that he gave, a little seminar that he participated in at the Council on Foreign Relations."
“And this is some of the things that Trump wanted these people to investigate. And it was on that phone call that they claim Trump was meddling in internal affairs, and they impeached Trump over this,” Limbaugh said. “And it turns out that Trump, like every other instance involving the so-called violations, Trump’s the one that was innocent. Trump’s the one that was been proven to be on the right side of the law.”
“There was corruption. There was shenanigans going on. Trump wanted to get to the bottom of it. Trump ends up impeached while Biden ends up the Democrat nominee with everybody ignoring what he did. And that’s the Senate report today. It makes note of this and other things,” he finished.
