If Biden has nothing to hide, he should welcome any review of his documents while in office as VP. He should say, Go for it. But in a CNN interview Biden threatens, “Lindsey is about to go down in a way that I think he’s going to regret his whole life.”
Lindsey Graham is the Chair of the Senate and will be requesting Biden’s VP State correspondence with Ukraine. He’ll be holding the gavel this time and the one subpoenaing witnesses. If the House does impeach Trump, Lindsey promises he’ll be prepared in the Senate with evidence of a REAL quid pro quo committed by Biden while he was VP. Tit for Tat essentially. Two can play this sick game. Don’t ever poke at a bear like Trump.
This threat on camera by Biden sounds very similar to the threat Chuck Schumer gave Trump at the beginning of his term, “When you go after the CIA, they have six ways from Sunday to get back at you.” Boy, oh boy, do they ever and did they ever. And it still is going on. Clapper, Brennan, et al.
Biden knows he was involved in a pay for play or selling his name and influence in exchange for a well-paying position for his son, but he’s doubling down on denial anyway. It’s the Democrat way. “I did not have sex with that woman!”comes to mind. Deny, deny, deny, bluff, bluff, bluff is the name of their game until someone like Lindsey comes along and calls their bluff. Lindsey has gotten so tough lately. I think McCain had some kind of hold on Lindsey making him a Nevertrumper. But not any longer! And not since the Kavanaugh sham. Lindsey basically put a torch to that sham of a hearing and probably could run for president on that scene alone. Lindsey wasn’t faking his anger like Schiff did. It was organic.
Presidential Censure may be a better way for the Democrats to go. They’ve tried it before for his alleged “sh-thole” comment and his miscontrued “good people on both sides” comment. Nothing in the hearing rises to the level of impeachment.
Censure is a formal, and public, group condemnation of an individual, often a group member, whose actions run counter to the group’s acceptable standards for individual behavior. In the United States, governmental censure is done when a body’s members wish to publicly reprimand the President of the United States, a member of Congress, a judge or a cabinet member. It is a formal statement of disapproval.Wikipedia
The Democrats better not impeach Trump in the House, or Trump has “six ways from Sunday” to retaliate. Trump is a fighter and will not go down easily. He’s withstood three years of incoming fire from them and is still standing. If they actually think he’s going to fold like cheap suit and resign like Nixon did, they have awoken the sleeping bear. Trump talking on the phone with Zelensky pales in comparison to what Biden is accused of and what Nixon committed. Biden better watch himself, or he could be the one landing himself behind bars like The View keeps wishing on Trump. Careful who you wish that for.
Best not to poke the sleeping bear Trump, as he’ll awaken and roar. Game on.
