2. Convince a family member of that potential candidate to do something legal but doesn’t-look-totally-above-board-maybe-on-the-face-of-it, in a country that depends on our official assistance, not for humanitarian needs but for hard-core security ones. Hmmm...Hunter Biden...and....South Korea? Not quite...Ukraine? Yes!

That’s all you really need for the set-up.

Obviously I don’t think this is what happened, but it would make for a clever twist/reveal in a book or movie.

Of course, Trump would squeal “entrapment” — don’t the perps always? — but no one was forcing him to act.
That's already a right-wing conspiracy theory. Think I saw it on Twitter. Progressives are supposedly making all this up to tank Biden and Trump to get Warren elected.
