On Friday, 12/6, Biden asserted there were plenty of competent people ready to serve, who also may have donated to his campaign. Biden has publicly bragged about threatening to withhold more than one billion dollars in U.S. aid if the Ukrainian government did not remove a prosecutor Biden didn’t like, Victor Shokin who said he was told to back off probe of Biden-linked firm.

He has claimed the demand came from then-President Barack Obama, who had allegedly lost faith in the prosecutor’s ability to tackle corruption.It’s almost impossible to find competant and qualified people who are not a financial success so appointing some of those people is normal. No one who has any kind of intelligence has a problem with appointing contributors, friends, relatives and aquaintenences to whatever positions the president decides to appoint them. That’s simply how things are done. It’s immoral to do them some other way, for example by lottery or picking names from lists.
