Skip to comments.Impeachment Inquiry: "Extreme Politics at Its Worst" [semi-satire]
Posted on 09/16/2023 1:30:33 AM PDT by John Semmens
Ian Sams, special assistant to the president and senior advisor to the White House Counsel's Office, labeled House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's (R-Calif) decision to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Biden "extreme politics at its worst. There's no evidence the President has done anything wrong. It's persecution of an innocent man."
McCarthy pointed out "there is a video of Joe Biden bragging about using his status as vice-president to extort the firing of the Ukraine prosecutor who was investigating the company that was paying Hunter a million dollars a year to serve on its board of directors. There's Hunter's laptop where he complains about having to give half his income to his Dad. In direct contradiction of Joe's insistence that he has 'never, not once' discussed business with his son, witnesses have testified that Joe participated in numerous business meetings--some in the vice-president's official residence--with Hunter and his business partners. Clearly, these discrepancies need to be investigated."
Sams pounced on McCarthy's remarks, saying "all of these allegations pertain to actions taken while Joe was vice-president. Any charges for bribes and abuse of authority that may have been committed should have been lodged against Vice-President Biden. Since he is no longer in that office, the charges are now moot. Sensible Republicans like former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) and Asa Hutchinson (R-Ark) agree there is no evidence against President Biden."
Sams went on to write letters to CNN, the New York Times, the Associated Press and Fox news urging them "not to give GOP lies about the President coverage they don't deserve. Allowing 'both sides' to have a say is lazy journalism and a threat to our democracy. Only by purging the airwaves of misinformation can the truth have a chance to make it through to the American people."
CNN's Annie Grayer, Marshall Cohen, and Daniel Dale's "fact check" of McCarthy's claims found several of them to be true: (1) Biden family members and associates received $20 million through a complex web of shell companies; (2) Joe Biden attended dinners and participated in conference calls with Hunter's business associates; (3) there are dozens of suspicious activity reports filed about Biden family member financial transactions; and (4) Joe Biden's denials of any business-related contact with his son are false.

CNN’s “fact check” of Speaker McCarthy’s claims found several of them to be true:
<><>(1) Biden family and associates received $20M thru a complex web of shell companies;
<><>(2) Joe Biden attended dinners and was on conference calls w/ Hunter’s business associates;
<><>(3) there are dozens of bank SARs about Biden family financial transactions;
<><>(4) Joe Biden’s denials of any business-related contact with his son are false.
Joe makes a big show of his “heartbreak” about Beau Biden, his dead son, and never misses a chance to showcase his undying love and devotion to Beau.
In April 2015, Joe Biden dined with Hunter Biden’s business guests, including top Burisma executive, Vadym Pozharsky, at the posh Café Milano restaurant in Washington.
At the time joe was meeting with oligarchs, Beau was dying from a brain tumor.
Beau died May 30 2015 at Walter Reed...but it was business as usual for Joe Biden.
With Beau hanging onto life, you’d think Joe would be spending time with his dying son.......not aiding and abetting Hunter’s influence peddling schemes.
It’s ‘hyper democracy’, where the least informed get to shout the loudest .... all in the name of free speach. That same free speach routinely denied other and more responsible voices.
Right now, I’m sure no one would notice (or care) if you shouted ‘fire’ in a crowded theater
Did you hear Repubs attacking the Dems when Trump was impeached?
That Biden phone call to Petro Poroshenko was a perfect phone call.
