Blaska is tempted to commit a crime
just so Jay Sekulow can defend him.
This man takes no prisoners
During and immediately after Tuesday’s (01-28-2020) impeachment trial, Fox News interviewed U.S. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio; Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I.; and Adam Schiff, D-Impeachment.
Who did MSNBC interview? Schiff, Stabenow, Schumer, Tester, Durbin, King, and Brown — all Democrats. Oh, and Mitt Romney, who wants witnesses. “It’s remarkable how beaten down Trump’s defense looked.” Did Jay Sekulow look “beaten down”?
CNN is almost as bad. CNN beat down on Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, for wondering how Joe Biden would fare in the Iowa Democratic presidential caucuses a week hence.
Following an afternoon at the Senate impeachment trial in which President Donald Trump’s legal team made the case — without any established factual basis — that former Vice President Joe Biden had acted inappropriately in 2016 when he called for the resignation of the top prosecutor in Ukraine, Ernst told reporters this:
I’m really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Democratic caucus goers. Will they be supporting VP Biden at this point?”
CNN links to one of its biased fact checks that alleges:
Trump has repeatedly claimed that former vice president Joe Biden had called for the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was “investigating his son.” There is no evidence Hunter Biden was ever under investigation. The investigation was into the business dealings of the owner of a Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma Holdings, where Hunter Biden sat on the board of directors. In addition, a former Ukrainian deputy prosecutor and top anti-corruption activist have said the investigation was dormant at the time. And chief prosecutor Viktor Shokin’s successor, Yuriy Lutsenko, has said in interviews this year that Hunter Biden didn’t violate any Ukrainian laws.
Written question to from the floor Blaska Policy Werkes to CNN:
- President Trump’s counsel in the Senate impeachment trial made clear it was the oligarch owner of Burismawho was under investigation. Why the attempt to dissemble?
- Why do you think “the investigation was dormant at the time”? Could it have been the placement of the vice president’s son on the board of directors?
- You parse that the investigation “was into the business dealings of the owner of a Ukrainian natural gas company.” Do you think that might have been the afore-mentioned Burisma? Isn’t that the point?!
- You write that “Hunter Biden didn’t violate any laws.” No, Hunter was only the willing American vice president’s hostage, well paid to protect the owner of Burisma from that investigation. See: Biden demanding Ukraine fire the prosecutor or lose one billion dollars. Ergo, procter, hoc — the dormancy.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Joni Ernst isn’t the only one wondering if Joe Biden is toast. CNN is clearly worried that the Democrats’ front-runner might be burned crispy on both sides. Democrats brought this impeachment. Trump defender Eric Herschmann Monday evening warned, “Be careful what you wish for.”
