The Democrats are screaming impeachment over President Trump inquiring whether Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son was involved in corruption in the Ukraine. AP reports that Trump told reporters, “It’s very important to talk about corruption. If you don’t talk about corruption, why would you give money to a country that you think, is corrupt?” Trump says that he did not tell the Ukraine president that his country would get US aid only if it investigated Biden’s son. The Democrats are trying to make another impeachment case. Politics is a dirty business. People are looking for dirt on other people all the time. It doesn’t make it right, but as the President said, if someone is corrupt, people need to know.
There were no Democrats, and very few Republicans for that matter, who even raised an eyebrow at Hillary Clinton’s very well documented pay to play scheme when she was Secretary of State. Here is a short list of Clinton’s corrupt dealings while she was Secretary of State: Nuclear grade uranium to Russia scoring $145 million to the Clinton Foundation, Bill Clinton’s $500,000 speech in Moscow, Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta’s $35 million energy deal with Russia, Clinton Foundation receipt of $2.35 million in donations from Ian Telfer, head of Russia’s uranium company, and the list goes on and on. But there was no mention by the venerable news media that Clinton should be investigated or removed.
The New York Times confirmed in May that Joe Biden’s son Hunter was paid as much as $50,000 per month as a board member of the natural gas firm owned by the Ukrainian oligarchy. Breitbart reports that Vice President Biden was heavily involved in mediating US policy towards Ukraine. When a Ukrainian prosecutor launched a corruption investigation into the energy company of which Hunter Biden was a board member, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in US loan guarantees to the country if the Ukrainian government did not fire the prosecutor. The Hill reported in April that the elder Biden bragged to the Council on Foreign Relations in a 2018 speech how he strong-armed Ukraine into firing its prosecutor.
Now a whistleblower report is claiming that on a call Trump strong-armed Ukraine’s president to investigate Biden’s son by threatening to withhold foreign aid, although AP reports, the “whistleblower” did not have firsthand knowledge of the call. The Democrats and the media are accusing Trump of doing exactly what Biden admitted he did, but the media was silent when Biden did it. Americans should demand transparency. Moreover, given the track record of all the failed attempts at removing Trump, Americans should demand that politicians do what they were elected to do—work on solving the nation’s problems rather than partisan grandstanding that only causes problems. These are perilous times as 2 Timothy 3:13 says, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” Do not be deceived.
