The Biden Angle

Even as things seem to grow more grim for Trump, he keeps insisting that the real story here is corruption in the Biden family. In fact, here is the President saying that just a couple of days ago:

TRUMP'S TWEET 9/22/2019: ..Breaking News: The Ukrainian Government just said they weren't pressured at all during the "nice" call. Sleepy Joe Biden, on the other hand, forced a tough prosecutor out from investigating his son's company by threat of not giving big dollars to Ukraine. That's the real story!

Needless to say, the truth is considerably more complicated than that.

To start, the company at the center of all of this is Burisma Holdings, a natural gas concern in Ukraine. That company is owned by a client of Hunter Biden's law firm (former Ukrainian government official Mykola Zlochevsky) and shortly after Biden's colleague and business partner Devon Archer joined Burisma's board, Biden joined the board as well (this was in April 2014). Since Biden had no expertise in the area of natural gas, it was a curious choice, as was his generous compensation package (often as much as $50,000 a month). If all of this seems to have a slightly unsavory odor, well, that's a fair assessment. Not helping things is that Burisma had attracted the attention of government authorities prior to Biden joining the firm, and was under investigation by both the UK and Ukraine when he accepted his seat on the board.

As noted above, Joe Biden enters the story in 2016, while he was vice president. As the Obama administration and much of the international community had concluded that the Ukrainian prosecutor Shokin was rotten to the core, Biden—acting as an envoy for the administration—helped oust him, primarily by threatening to withhold aid from Ukraine as long as Shokin was in place.

At this point, Donald Trump's thought process becomes crystal clear. If Biden was acting with an eye toward helping his son, then he and Trump would have done literally the same thing: used U.S. foreign aid as leverage against Ukraine in exchange for personal concessions. The problem for Trump is that he's relying on a lie that Shokin told to Giuliani, and that is entirely unsupported by evidence. To start, although Shokin's office was technically investigating Burisma in 2014, there was little activity on that front by 2016, and indeed, the British had grown frustrated with what appeared to them to be obstruction, as if Shokin was actually trying to protect the company. On top of that, it wasn't just Joe Biden who thought that Shokin had to go. As Anders Aslund, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council explained to the Wall Street Journal, "The whole G-7, the IMF, the EBRD, everybody was united that Shokin must go, and the spokesman for this was Joe Biden." And finally, for the Biden conspiracy to be true, Barack Obama would have to have been a willing participant. This is the same man who ran one of the most remarkably scandal- and corruption-free presidencies in memory.

In summary, one can look askance at Hunter Biden, who may have traded on his familial connections to claim a handsome salary from a shady Ukrainian company. However, there is no evidence that Joe Biden's actions vis-à-vis Shokin were undertaken to help his son, or had any other corrupt intent. In fact, there's an argument that getting rid of Shokin actually put Hunter Biden at greater legal risk, since an honest prosecutor was more likely to turn the screws on Burisma than a dishonest one. That means that if Trump is counting on a defense of "I did the same thing Biden did," then he's really stepped in it.

Meanwhile, there is the question of how this will affect Biden's presidential campaign. The former VP is, of course, mounting a full-court defense, arguing (quite reasonably) that he's done nothing wrong here, and (also pretty reasonably) that this is another case of Trump creating a scandal where none exists, like Hillary Clinton's e-mail. Still, this could hurt him, since the whole matter is rather complicated, and the average voter's takeaway might be something along the lines of "Biden did something dubious in the Ukraine." On the other hand, it could help him, by making him a sympathetic figure, by making Trump look desperate, and by reminding everyone that the President is scared witless of facing off against Uncle Joe. That would certainly bolster Biden's "electability" argument. For what it is worth, several Democratic strategists who talked to The Hill speculated that the whole thing would do Biden more good than harm.

Incidentally, some members of the Team Trump inner circle, including Steve Bannon, have decided that the Ukraine smear has already failed, and they are looking for something new to use against the Bidens. The new target: Hunter's work with one (or more) Chinese firms. Time will tell if they come up with anything, but it's worth pointing out again that the unsavory deeds of the son do not attach to the father.

yep, this 'what about-ism' regarding a son of Biden may be just more obstruction. :idea:
And rather similar to last season's cry about the Clinton emails.

The whistleblower complaint is actually likely about far more than just the single issue of Trump's calls to Ukraine.

And, the AG has a liar's track record. So if Barr handles any 'transcript', that should be trusted as much as a snowball's chance in ... Yemen.

Let's learn the facts first.
"Don't let 'em get ya."

Hey, whatever tax payers are paying White House 'Press Secretary' Stephanie Grisham is too much.
Some say it's as high as $180,000 a year but the WH has cancelled press conferences.

That's a rather swampy affair!

Time to Impeach?

It is clear that impeachment, whether or not it actually happens, has never had more momentum. Monday began with the publication of a Washington Post op-ed from seven freshman congressman Gil Cisneros (D-CA), Jason Crow (D-CO), Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA), Elaine Luria (D-VA), Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ), Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), and Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) from swing districts (none is more blue than D+2, and most lean Republican) in which they write:

"If these allegations are true, we believe these actions represent an impeachable offense. We do not arrive at this conclusion lightly, and we call on our colleagues in Congress to consider the use of all congressional authorities available to us, including the power of 'inherent contempt' and impeachment hearings, to address these new allegations, find the truth and protect our national security."

If folks like this—the same kind of folks who were trying to put the brakes on impeachment talk just a week ago—have flipped, that is big trouble for Trump.

In addition to those seven, several other moderate Democratic members of the House conceded that they have begun to seriously consider impeachment. That includes Reps. Dean Phillips (DFL-MN), Angie Craig (DFL-MN), and Debbie Dingell (D-MI). And Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spent Monday working the phones, seeing where her caucus now stands, and potentially preparing to launch a pro-impeachment offensive. She will make a statement sometime this morning, and then will preside over a meeting of her caucus this afternoon. The latest count has 155 Democratic members of the House in favor of impeachment, and only 80 against. It takes 218 to make it happen, so if we include Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI), who has said he's on board, then just 62 of those 80 have to flip.

In addition to the movement in the House, which Politico describes as a "seismic change," a number of high-profile Democrats outside of Congress have also called for a formal impeachment inquiry for the first time. That list includes former VP Al Gore, Democratic strategist James Carville, and former Obama White House aide Chris Lu. That trio was all on the record as opposing impeachment, until Monday.

In the end, it's possible that the blue team will have no choice but to vote for articles of impeachment, regardless of their (likely) fate in the Senate. The criticism being leveled against Republicans is that they will look the other way with any presidential malfeasance in service of their political goals. If the evidence of Trump's guilt in this case grows any stronger, the Democrats would be vulnerable to the same basic charge if they stood by and did nothing.

The Media Response

The media, or a lot of it, at least, was also quite assertive on Monday in its view that the time had come for impeachment. A selection of headlines:

Los Angeles Times: If Trump won't come clean about Ukraine, an impeachment inquiry is the only option
CNN: Trump is Nixon, but with more chutzpah and less respect
Washington Post: We're passing the tipping point on impeachment
Washington Post: It's time, Speaker Pelosi
NBC News: Trump's Ukraine call mentioning Biden is the strongest reason yet for impeachment
NBC News: The dam could break on impeachment this week
Bloomberg: We Need to Talk About Impeachment
Esquire: Democrats Must Impeach Donald Trump to Defend the Republic
TPM: The President Needs To Be Impeached
The New Yorker: "How Has This Bastard Not Been Impeached Yet?" Nixon Asks in Hell

For that last one, it is suspected they may not have actually talked to Nixon.

Not everyone in the media is thinking in this way, of course. Politico's Jack Shafer takes the cautious course, with a piece headlined "Why Trump Will Survive Even This." Shafer's argument is that Trump dodges every scandal, so why wouldn't he dance around this one? Maybe so, but it's worth noting that quite a few people—Nixon, Bernie Madoff, Bonnie and Clyde—consistently got away with bad behavior, right up until the time they didn't.

Meanwhile, there are also those Trump supporters who are circling the wagons and claiming that the only bad guys (and gals) here are the Democrats. John Solomon of The Hill published a piece on Monday entitled "Let's get real: Democrats were first to enlist Ukraine in US elections." Solomon is a partisan hack who writes laughably bad conspiracy-theory op-eds, and this one is no exception. Still, it speaks to the whataboutism that we can expect to see from some conservative corners of the media. Ditto Sean Hannity's program on Monday, during which he opined that the "mainstream media mob" did the U.S. a big favor by making Ukraine into a major news story.

What's Next?

Who knows? There are more questions about what happens next than there are answers. Will Trump insist on releasing some sort of transcript? If no, what will his excuse be? If yes, how will that shape this story? Meanwhile, will Pelosi announce that impeachment proceedings are imminent? Very possible? Unlikely? Completely off the table? We will see later today.

It is entirely possible, of course, that this will be yet another situation that heads to court, as the Democrats try to get information, and the administration tries to stonewall them. One would imagine that if a president of the United States is potentially trying to strike deals where he leverages foreign aid/intelligence/whatever else in exchange for dirt on his opponents, the courts would want to fast-track that. But you never know, these days.

There is one wild card, of course, and that is our modern-day Deep Throat. The identity of the whistleblower has not leaked; even Trump doesn't know who it is (which hasn't stopped the President from denigrating that person as disloyal and a partisan operative). Clearly, that whistleblower would prefer to remain unknown, both so they can keep their job, but also for their own safety. That said, if they've already come this far, and it looks like the works have been gummed up by legal maneuvering, they could go fully public. How would it look for, say, a high-ranking member of the CIA to appear on the NBC Evening News to tell the story of how he heard Donald Trump tell Zelensky that with no dirt there would be no aid? The answer: It would look very bad for the President, indeed.

Impeachment is on its way.
No need to post here the zillion news on the web about it, they all talk about that, even FOX.

Get rid of Trump is the number one thing to do.
May it be with that deadly double bacon cheese burger midnight snack that I so strongly wished for or
an impeachment, let it be.
I would have prefered him beaten nice and clean in the next election.
I would have like to see his face explode. BEATEN !!! Like a regular loser.
It would have been more fun if beaten by a woman.
You could picture another woman being very happy...

But if it's impeachment that will do the job, well, be it !

Most likely it will be the next election before he is gone, unless he get's a lot of foreign help again and wins.

The House will have the proceedings and prove him guilty but Moscow Mitch will never let it get close to the Senate.

If the proceedings are handled correctly it could educate people who don't know the Constitution or Government how emoluments work and why the Cheat-o is breaking the law.

As well as why it is illegal for elected official to take things of value from foreign entities (you then owe something back or are subject to bribes the reason for background checks) especially in return for something of value like say false or even real Oppo research.

Furthermore why it's illegal for elected officials to withhold money earmarked by Congress (their job) for US defenses in Foreign Nations to try to gain something of value in return, I am pretty sure that is called extortion.

Unfortunately a lot of people don't know or understand this stuff especially when they watch entertainment shows on FOX instead of the Real News and the well researched stories of the Administrations illegal activities.

The Dems have jumped off a cliff and opened a can of worms.

The Trump administration is now going to go after the Dems by bringing up old , but relevant news.

Ukraine Has Evidence Their Govt. Colluded With Clinton Campaign

Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.

Trump is playing the Dems , the media and half of the voting public like the parroting puppets they are.
Do you really think Trump would release something that would incriminate him ?
If you do , you have a lot more surprises in store.

Two things:
1) The inspector general (Michael Horowitz) did not find evidence supporting assertions made by the president and his allies that political bias inside the FBI had rigged the case to clear Clinton. And the report's already out. In June. Here's the final 500 plus page Horowitz report if you care to actually read it: https://assets.documentcloud.org/docume ... 4-18-0.pdf

2)The only one damaged by Comey's leaks was Clinton. Everybody knows she lost the election in part because of the Comey leak days before the election.
Nobody believes ANYBODY rigs an election against themselves. It was the intelligence agencies and the campaigns and Executive and Legislative branches (esspecially McConnell) who knew most clearly before the election that the Russians were rigging the airwaves and ballot counting boxes for Trvmp. Everybody also knows that Trump fired Comey because he was getting too close to the stuff about the Russians. Or the Saudis. Whichever.

Some additional facts.
Strozk was the FBI's leading expert with decades of experience on how criminal organizations work with specialty in the Russian mob. THAT is the real reason why you guys are told to hate him.

John Durham is famous for weakly mopping up and prosecuting informants after Whitey Bulger got away. So, a swing and a miss there.
And he also was tasked with looking into the CIA destroying video when the Bush Admin approved torture. Durham filed his report, no one was prosecuted and the files remain sealed. So justice got away there too under Durham's purview.
Also, AG Barr hand-picked Durham out of retirement to come and look at this FBI stuff. That's a red-herring right there.
Doesn't generate much credibility with that resume, or good faith since Barr's his patron.

Huber's just the guy picked to follow those who followed knwon liar Carter Page around. Huber was also asked to retire by... the Trvmp Administration. So pickin a real winner there, eh? Maybe.

Meanwhile,
If you're a member of the Trump administration, get a lawyer.

If you're a lawyer for the Trump administration, get a lawyer.

If you’re a lawyer for a Trump administration lawyer, get a lawyer.

Congressional subpoenas can only be delayed for so long before they become obstruction.
Witness Cohen and Manafort. They were lawyers, remember?
:)

And oh yeah!
Did you hear about Bibi Netanyahu?
And how quickly Trvmp has moved away from him?
How long do you think before he moves away from you and your patrons?

Punk , no matter who the investigators are , you're gonna find a problem with them.
It's your nature to step in line.

The Dems have protected their own backs for years but it's a new era now.
Turns out this ' whistle blower ' has a certain political slant and I bet it's not to the right. You should be worried about the fallout on this when the leaker is exposed. Many people like you are deep inside the administration and it will come to haunt you in 2020 .
Also turns out that if Trump didn't ask questions about corruption in the Ukraine , and Biden and his son , he would have been derelict in his duties to vet a newly formed government.
After all , they wanted the billions that people like you wanted them to have so bad.
The left would have jumped all over that.
If that's not the case , then why is one of the ' misdemeanors ' , that could lead to impeachment hearings , the complaint that Trump withheld money ??

Face it Flake , you lost . get over it and grab some glasses , Blind Boy Punk.

One more thing , The Horowitz Report has NOT been released yet or reports from the other investigations.

No rePete.
It would help YOUR case if they picked credible investigators, but they don't. Or can't?
I'm pointing out that their resume are poor and don't lead to justice.
I'm the messenger here, not the criminal. I give you good information and you throw junk at the screen and call me names.
It is the stories they and you keep saying and have to keep changing that make all y'all less and less believable
And that shit rolls down hill. And taints you. You been rollin around in it for quite some time.

Not me. I won't pass that crap on and thereby maintain my credibility.
You again missed me by a hundred, thousand miles

washingtonexaminer/smh
wht you shouldn't trust them either:
In January 2019, the Washington Examiner published a story with the headline, "Border rancher: 'We've found prayer rugs out here. It's unreal'." Shortly thereafter, President Donald Trump cited the story as another justification for a border wall amid the 2018-2019 federal government shutdown. The story in question cited one anonymous rancher who offered no evidence of these Muslim prayer rugs, such as photos. The story provided no elaboration on how the rancher knew the rugs in question were Muslim prayer rugs. The author of the story formerly worked as press secretary for the anti-immigration group Federation for American Immigration Reform. Stories of Muslim prayer rugs at the border are urban myths that have frequently popped up since at least 2005, but with no evidence to substantiate the claims.The Examiner never issued a clarification or retracted the story.

In April 2019, Quartz reported that White House advisor Stephen Miller had been purposely leaking information on border apprehensions and asylum seekers to the Washington Examiner so that the paper would publish stories with alarming statistics that sometimes criticized DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, which he could then show to Trump and undermine her position. Nielsen was fired in April 2019 for reportedly not being sufficiently hawkish on immigration.

False story about The New York Times
On June 20, 2019, the paper falsely reported that The New York Times had "fed information" to the FBI about Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law. The paper issued a major correction within a day. Prior to the correction, Trump tweeted, "Just revealed that the Failing and Desperate New York Times was feeding false stories about me, & those associated with me, to the FBI," which was retweeted over 20,000 times.

Misleading content about climate change
In August 2019, The Washington Examiner published an editorial, titled "The great failure of the climate models", which claimed that climate models were not valid scientific tools. Scientists described the Washington Examiner op-ed as highly misleading, noting that there were numerous false assertions and cherry-picked data in the op-ed.

Your source has denuded you.

Trump is having a bad week. Poor old man, out of his league. Did he try wanking? Maybe too old for it.

The end is near. Or at least we will have Trump sitting in the House taking the 5th and arms crossed. Right in the middle of the election cycle.

Remember former Republican U.S. Attorney General, John Mitchell? In 1975, he was found guilty of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and perjury. He served only 19 months of his sentence at a federal prison camp, a minimum-security prison, before being released on parole for medical reasons.
