Rubbing noses into the stench of corruption

After a week-long media blitz on impeaching President Trump, the media and the Democratic Party leadership have whipped themselves up into another frenzy as Trump encouraged China to investigate former vice president and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Trump, as the media insinuates, is boldly rubbing the impeachers’ noses in the very thing about which they are trying to impeach him on—asking countries involved with alleged Biden corruption to investigate the corruption. They apparently can’t believe that Trump is flaunting his impeachable offenses before the entire world. Trump, however, says he has a duty to expose corruption.

In a tweet, Trump said, “As the President of the United States, I have an absolute right, perhaps even a duty, to investigate, or have investigated, CORRUPTION, and that would include asking, or suggesting, other Countries to help us out!” He previously said at the White House, according to AP, “China should start an investigation into the Bidens.” The rub of the nose into the stench of corruption comes from Democrats believing it is against the law to ask another country for an investigation of a political opponent, even though that opponent openly bragged about how when he was vice president he withheld funds from Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was investigating his son for corruption. Hunter Biden is also involved in similar deals in China. What was Hillary Clinton and the ex-president doing with Russia and Ukraine against Trump?

AP, which long has left any semblance of balance in its reporting about Trump, is having apoplexy. AP writes, “The boldness of Trump’s call Thursday also suggests he will continue to act as though requests for other countries to investigate potential opponents in the 2020 election are normal, even in the face of broad condemnation from Democrats and some Republicans. It’s a tactic Trump has used successfully before, pushing questionable secret conversations into the open, hoping to inoculate him against charges that he is engaged in nefarious action, cover-ups or obstruction of justice.” Interesting. AP appears to believe that being open about what’s going on is an attempt somehow to cover up the facts. Quite frankly, if Biden seeks to be president, shouldn’t all his dealings be transparent? Shouldn’t he welcome that?

If anything was learned from the Mueller Investigation into “nefarious action, cover-ups or obstruction of justice,” it was that Trump was exonerated because the nefarious action was conducted against him. The same players—deep-state operatives, Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), the news media, and Democratic Party leadership—are repeating their operations, hoping something will stick to remove Trump from office. In that process, we are seeing first hand some of the corruption. As citizens, as Christians, we should expect, demand, and pray for the truth to be revealed. As is written in Job 34:12, “Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment (distort justice).” Let the light shine!
