Democrats, media continue to lose credibility with impeachment effort

Washington Post:

Senate Republicans consider including Bidens in potential impeachment trial

There is growing GOP interest in scrutinizing Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings as a counter to House Democrats’ inquiry.
As Democrats keep shifting their story, Republicans in the Senate become more interested in Biden corruption at the heart of the matter.  This was always about Biden corruption and Democrats have been trying to make it about Trump's desire to get Ukraine to investigate that corruption.

From the alleged whistleblower to Adam Schiff there have been shifting stories by Democrats and witnesses they have called but the thrust of the Democrat effort is to say that it is impeachable to investigate Democrat corruption.  The media also keeps lying about whether there was anything wrong with the Bidens dealings in Ukraine when it is pretty obvious that Biden's quid pro quo was to protect his son's deal which looks more and more like an influence buying gig.

The bottom line is that Trump was using traditional diplomatic leverage to get an investigation and Biden was using an untraditional quid pro quo to avoid an investigation of corruption.  All the media manipulation and Adam Schiff witness tampering can't hide this reality.

Evidence is now emerging that Biden tried to influence the State Department to kill the corruption investigation.

Memos newly released through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Southeastern Legal Foundation on my behalf detail how State officials in June 2016 worked to prepare the new U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, to handle a question about “Burisma and Hunter Biden.”

In multiple drafts of a question-and-answer memo prepared for Yovanovitch’s Senate confirmation hearing, the department’s Ukraine experts urged the incoming ambassador to stick to a simple answer.

“Do you have any comment on Hunter Biden, the Vice President’s son, serving on the board of Burisma, a major Ukrainian Gas Company?,” the draft Q&A asked.

The recommended answer for Yovanovitch: “For questions on Hunter Biden’s role in Burisma, I would refer you to Vice President Biden’s office.”

The Q&A is consistent with other information flowing out of State. As I reported yesterday, when a Burisma representative contacted State in February 2016 to ask for the department’s help in quashing the corruption allegations, Hunter Biden’s role on the company’s board was prominently cited.

And a senior State Department official who testified recently in the impeachment proceedings reportedly told lawmakers he tried to warn the vice president’s office that Burisma posed a conflict for Joe Biden but was turned aside.
...
Joe Biden had a conflict of interest when he used a quid pro quo to get an investigation of a company that was giving his sons millions in an influence operation.

The process chosen by the Democrat in the House for this coup attempt is seen as illegitimate by Trump supporters and also by Republicans in the Senate who have made it clear that they will reject articles of impeachment coming from the current process.
