The public testimony portion of this “formal impeachment inquiry” appears to be behind us now. The Democrats essentially railroaded the conversations into a conspiratorial tunnel that leads to only one conclusion for them: Drawing up articles of impeachment against Donald Trump.
But the end of the public testimony is not the end of the story, as a great many House Republicans made clear over the last few days. There is an entire anthology of stories to tell that would behoove the American people’s understanding of this story, but House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff wouldn’t allow those tales to be told.
These are the stories surrounding Hunter Biden in the Ukraine, and what role his father’s political position may have had in those dealings. Schiff was adamant to disallow such information during his impeachment hearings.
So, now, Senator Lindsey Graham is opening an investigation of his own…and former Vice President Joe Biden is none too happy about it.
Former Vice President Joe Biden threatened Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for launching an investigation into his activities with Ukraine while in the Obama White House, stating the Republican will “regret” the move his “whole life.”
On Thursday, Graham sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting documents to aid in determining whether Biden pushed for the firing of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin to squash a sweeping probe into Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy giant where his son, Hunter Biden, served as a board member. The younger Biden was compensated generously, making up to $83,000 a month for several years while on the Burisma’s board.
“Lindsey is about to go down in a way that I think he’s going to regret his whole life,” Biden told CNN host Don Lemon in a Friday interview in South Carolina. “I say Lindsey, I just — I’m just embarrassed by what you’re doing, for you. I mean, my Lord.”
The Biden-Burisma story fits well into President Trump’s anti-corruption efforts within the region, and understanding the impetus of these concerns would go a long way toward understanding what was at stake in Ukraine during these allegedly improper relations between Trump and his counterpart in Kiev, Volodymyr Zelensky.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
