The irrational impeachment effort of Democrats in Congress

Thomas Farnan:
The latest high crime and misdemeanor that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wants the U. S. Senate to make into a federal case is this: In a phone call with his counterpart in Ukraine, President Trump conditioned the provision of foreign aid on rooting out that nation’s admitted corruption on behalf of the Obama Administration.

Trump denies that there was any kind of quid pro quo.

Let’s assume that during weeks of secret depositions in the basement of the Capitol, U.S. Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) can produce at least one 20-second soundbite that sounds like, yes, there was some kind of reciprocal intent.

Then Trump was engaging in foreign policy on something Congress should celebrate, not prosecute. Here are the indisputable facts.

A Ukraine court has ruled that country illegally meddled against Trump in the 2016 election. That’s kind of big, isn’t it?

During the interference, Joe Biden was the Obama administration’s point man in the country; i.e., the proverbial fox guarding the henhouse.

Not content simply to look the other way as Ukraine assisted the Clinton campaign, Biden decided to wet his beak in the sleaze. His son raked in as much as $3 million in fees from one of the nation’s largest energy companies, Burisma Holdings.

Fired Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin has claimed in a sworn statement that he was thwarted in his attempts to put an end to the farce because the Obama administration conditioned $1 billion in foreign aid on his removal from office.

Shokin avers:

The truth is that I was forced out because I was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into Burisma Holdings . . . a natural gas firm active in Ukraine. Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was a member of the Board of Directors. I presume Burisma, which was connected with gas extraction, had the support of the US Vice President Joe Biden because his son was on the Board of Directors.

Footnote to The Washington Post: This statement is far more damning than anything Deep Throat peddled to Bob Woodward in that parking garage. You are preening, posing, fake-news hypocrites for not doing a five-part exposé on it.

NeverTrump and their little yeppers who pretend not to be are making “principled” arguments that while it was okay to ask Ukraine to investigate election interference, the request became an impeachable offense when Trump also asked about Biden’s role in the mess.

Which raises the question: How is it even possible to investigate Obama administration corruption without chasing down payoffs made to the family of its chief fixer?
There is more.

The Washington Post continues to disgrace itself with its Trump hatred and ridiculous defense of the coup attempts against the President from the Russian collusion hoax to the latest episodes of backing CIA coup attempts against the President by backers of Biden who used a quid pro quo to get an investigation of his son's ridiculous sweetheart deal with a questionable Ukraine company.
