The Democrats’ impeachment inquiry backfired in massive fashion.
After Adam Schiff and his allies made Ukraine the focus of impeachment, Americans are now demanding answers for Joe and Hunter Biden’s shady dealings in Ukraine.
And now Trey Gowdy told a secret about Joe Biden. What he said could land Biden in jail.
Democrats made a major miscalculation in the Senate impeachment trial.
Adam Schiff and his fellow House Managers tried to head off a defense Donald Trump’s lawyers were going to make by spending hours claiming that Joe and Hunter Biden did nothing wrong in Ukraine.
The Democrats argued it was a conspiracy theory to suggest President Trump had a legitimate reason to ask for investigations into both Burisma paying Hunter Biden one million dollars a year and Joe Biden extorting Ukraine into firing a prosecutor that had been investigating that company.
This argument only served to raise more questions about what really went on with both Hunter Biden and the quid pro quo Joe Biden engineered where Ukraine fired a prosecutor after Biden threatened to withhold one billion dollars in U.S. aid.
Appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program, former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy leveled some bad news the Democrats’ way.
Gowdy explained to Hannity’s audience the hypocrisy of the whole situation and the legal danger Joe and Hunter Biden could find themselves in.
By Gowdy’s telling, the fake news media declared Joe and Hunter Biden not guilty of any wrongdoing despite there never being a serious investigation into Hunter Biden’s influence peddling and Joe Biden’s conflict of interest.
What I’m particularly interested in is what Democrats think makes a prima facie or a threshold case for being able to investigate something. With Trump, it’s a conversation at a doggone bar. That’s enough to launch a FISA probe into someone.
With the Bidens, “Politico” and “The Hill” just pronounced that there’s no evidence. Who’s looked into it? If it’s going to be looked into, it needs to be by law enforcement.
Look, I love my colleagues in the House and the Senate. But if it’s criminal activity that we are interested in, it needs to be looked into by law enforcement.
The danger for Joe Biden is an investigation into how Biden decided to pressure Ukraine to fire the prosecutor that had been investigating Burisma.
Was there a corrupt motive?
Did Biden blackmail Ukraine into firing that prosecutor in order to benefit his family financially?
If there is a Congressional investigation into Biden’s shady quid pro quo, the former Vice President may be called to testify.
Should Biden lie under oath, he would be facing criminal penalties.
There are signs such an investigation is underway.
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson requested the Secret Service turn over any travel records related to Hunter Biden.
And the Treasury Department began turning over suspicious activity financial records relating to Hunter Biden to Johnson and Grassley starting last November.
This only increases the possibility that former Vice President Biden will have to give answers under oath which could put him in legal peril.
