Democrats Have Created This False Narrative That Biden Had To Receive Money Directly For It To Be Bribery Or Corruption
GWU law professor Jonathan Turley comments on the "taunting" response from the Biden White House to Congressional Republicans' impeachment inquiry regarding the overseas business, this week on the "FOX News Sunday" panel.

"The president stands contradicted. I mean, he clearly lied when he said he had no knowledge of his son's business dealings. He was also clearly aware of and influence-peddling scheme and was the focus of it," Turley said. "What the Democrats have done successfully is create this false narrative he has to receive money directly for this to be corruption or bribery."

JONATHAN TURLEY: I thought was quite shocking to see the level of taunting of the House. This was one of the most important things that the Congress and the president could be involved in, an impeachment inquiry. And actually, when I testified in the Biden impeachment hearing I noted that [WH counsel's office spokesman Ian] Sams and others might be tripping some wires here. This is what got the Nixon White House in trouble, when the White House counsel and other offices got involved in the narrative.

There are serious questions here. There are 10 questions presented here. But he does not appear to answer them.

But the president stands contradicted. I mean, he clearly lied when he said he had no knowledge of his son's business dealings. He was also clearly aware of and influence-peddling scheme and was the focus of it. But what the Democrats have done successfully is create this false narrative that he has to receive money directly for this to be corruption or bribery. Federal courts have rejected that. They have said repeatedly that money going to family members is corruption.
>>
But are they going to answer these questions? No, the president would rather drink molten lead and answer any one of these questions. Should he? Of course, he should, because he stands contradicted and the public has a right to know.

Hunter Biden's former business partner Tony Bobulinski accused Democratic Reps. Jamie Raskin and Dan Goldman of lying on behalf of the Bidens at a House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday. The full hearing (ongoing as of publication of this clip) is available below

I'm sure you have many more active threads right now

When MTG filed articles of impeachment the day Republicans took back the House, that was a signal to everyone that this is not a serious inquiry, House Republicans don't actually care what happened, and the entire thing is just a farce to generate negative headlines on Republican friendly websites for Biden.
Maybe if they focused on actually investigating accusations of wrongdoing instead of running with every 'gotcha' they come across, real or imagined, so they can go on Fox and OANN and howl about corruption, people would take the inquiry more seriously.

did you not see biden do exactly what they impeached trump for on video with ukraine asking for a quid pro quo? What do you mean just a farse? Remember the emails where "pedo pete" got 10% for the big guy?? Are you paying attention? If not why comment? Go read up lil guy.

>did you not see biden do exactly what they impeached trump for on video with ukraine asking for a quid pro quo?
No. When did that happen?
>What do you mean just a farse?
I mean whether or not Biden committed any crime was irrelevant and the purpose was never anything more than producing negative headlines for him and creating a narrative of "See? Biden got impeached too!" to make Trump's impeachments seem less significant. Ironically, by having this mentality, they've seen to it that any real malfeasance by Biden will be ignored. Think "The Boy Who Cried Wolf".
>Remember the emails where "pedo pete" got 10% for the big guy?
I remember the supposed screenshot that was going around from Hunter's phone listing "Pedo Pete" as a contact had "Dad" as a contact as well, meaning even if it was real it wasn't Joe.
>Are you paying attention? If not why comment? Go read up lil guy.
Based on your spergings, I'm fairly confident I'm more informed on this than you.

The thing he didn't do on his own initiative that did the opposite of what your conspiracy claims it does.

Feel free to post the video of Biden threatening to withhold funds approved by Congress unless a foreign power launched an investigation into his political opponent
You know, that thing Trump got impeached for doing.
>>
>>1283745
The president actually has that power.
The VP does not have the ability to make threats to withhold funds if a prosecutor isn't fired.
>>
>>1283752
No, the president actually doesn't have the power to withhold funds approved by Congress unless foreign nations manufacture dirt on his political opponent.
That's why Trump got impeached.
Still waiting for that video link of Biden doing the thing that Trump got impeached.
>>
>>1283752
>The VP does not have the ability to make threats to withhold funds if a prosecutor isn't fired.
Lol this is a lie and you know it.
A VP can make threats all they want. Anyone who is able to communicate can threaten others.

Your trying to argue that his threat was a bluff.
>>
>>1283697
nice blogshit faggot
>>
>>1283752
In point of fact, the president cannot legally withhold funds issued by Congress. Congress controls the power of the purse.

Also, in point of fact, the funds weren't withheld.

Also also, in point of fact, Biden issued the threat at the behest of Obama's state department, and the VP, as a an officer of the executive, is empowered/allowed to perform tasks for the president. They're basically considered an executive gopher when they aren't passing the tie-breaking vote in the Senate, which is virtually all the time. If they weren't, they'd have fuck all to do. There's a reason it was traditionally considered like the weakest job you could pigeonhole someone into to kill their career for much of our history. The VP is a goddamn errand boy/girl.
>>
>>1283786
>In point of fact, the president cannot legally withhold funds issued by Congress
In point of fact, vice president Joe Biden made that threat regardless
>>
>>1283789
No he didn't, you're taking an out of context clip from a CFR dinner which was debunked years ago and pretending it's the basis for a conspiracy theory.
>>
>>1283786

Sure he can when it comes to foreign nations.

new lies
>>

Biden legitimately made that threat, and you know it. it was never "debunked", what occurred was an attempt to explain away why it was ok he made that threat and why it wasn't the corruption that it very much appears to be
>>
>>1283795
only to shill faggots would getting rid of corruption be corruption

Incorrect. You've never heard of impoundment?

I cant believe Saudi Arabia gave Hunter $2B
>>
>>1283752
the vice president can, however, communicate the position the US is taking in certain matters. he didnt have the power to do it unilaterally, and the stance taken to potentially withhold aid didnt come from him
>>
>>1283799
No. I'm saying you're completely wrong.
Foreign aid was withheld to Pakistan by the president in the past and other times.
The president has the power to withhold aid.
The funds allocated by congress then go to impoundment.
You're retarded and you're dragging every down with your bullshit.
>>
>>1283859
True, and president Obama would have the ability to withhold aid.
However, it's pretty shady they wanted a prosecutor fired who was investigating his son.

and now (((he's))) talking about developing the Gaza strip as water front property, and suggested Israel should remove civilians while it “cleans up” the strip. Many many shekels ₪ to make there.

>it's pretty shady they wanted a prosecutor fired who was investigating his son
the investigation was shelved at that point, and Hunter Biden didnt work at Burisma during the period of time the investigation was targeting
>>
>>1283933
The Saudis opened an investment account valued at 2 billion, yes.

Are you aware of the concept of an account? You probably live in a tent and probably had all your bank accounts closed down long ago for repeatedly overdrafting them, but surely you remember the concept, no?
>>
>>1283950
>Biden didnt work at Burisma during the period of time the investigation was targeting
Oh look he did

>Hunter Biden, 45, a former Washington lobbyist, joined the Burisma board in April 2014. That month, as part of an investigation into money laundering, British officials froze London bank accounts containing $23 million that allegedly belonged to Mr. Zlochevsky.
so an investigation into the company had already started before hunter started working there, which is what i said

>But after Ukrainian prosecutors refused to provide documents needed in the investigation
the ukrainian prosecutor was stifling the investigation, the same one the US and most EU countries wanted removed
>>
>>1283973
>Oh look he did
No. He didn't. The investigation was into the owner, Mykola Zlochevsky, using his position in government to illegally funnel government contracts to Burisma. Mykola Zlochevsky stopped being the Ukraine's Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources April 20th, 2012, and was out of government completely by February 26th, 2014. Hunter Biden started at Burisma May 12, 2014.

There was zero fucking overlap between when the investigation was targeting and when Hunter worked there.

You're deliberately conflating when the investigation was open and when it was targeting to make Hunter look involved which is on the level of saying someone should be a bank robbery suspect because they patronized the bank the next month. Fucking lying sack of shit.

There was 100% overlap when Biden coerced Ukraine by threatening to withhold funding into firing the lead prosecutor investigating the company who was paying his son to protect them

The investigation was literally the reason the owner hired hunter

get new lies

So the investigation wasn't into whether Hunter did illegal shit. Hunter was brought on to cover up illegal shit.

And the proof of that is Biden called for a prosecutor that wasn't even fucking working on the case when Hunter was hired to be fired over a year and a half later?

Also, Ukraine fucking convicted Mykola Zlochevsky just last god damn year under the fucking Biden presidency while Ukraine is entirely dependent on US aid, you dumbshit lunatic.

Do you not realize that an investigation is not a point in time thing, but long running? Yes, it was active for more than a year and a half.
>Ukraine fucking convicted Mykola Zlochevsky just last god damn year under the fucking Biden presidency while Ukraine is entirely dependent on US aid, you dumbshit lunatic.
So justice was delayed nearly a decade after the original prosecutor was fired? Sounds like Mykola Zlochevsky made a good choice bringing on hunter biden

>>1284194
>Do you not realize that an investigation is not a point in time thing, but long running?
It isn't actually. Burisma was subject to 17 separate criminal investigations by Ukraine over the past few years with them popping up and closing all the time.

Also, how the fuck was a US VP supposed to fucking shield a corrupt Ukrainian businessman (who fled to fucking Russia a few months after Hunter was hired and was there when Biden made his statement) from prosecution?

Would you go to Kamala for jack shit?

>So justice was delayed nearly a decade after the original prosecutor was fired?
He wasn't the original prosecutor. He was the third prosecutor just for that case. Why didn't Biden interfere in the other 16? Why didn't he get the other prosecutors fired?

Seriously, you have no idea what was going on in Ukraine, no idea how US politics work, and no understanding of the material facts of the investigations. Hiring a US VP's son did not and could not make the Burisma owner's problems go away.

>>
>>1284284
>They didn't know how useless Joe was and took his threats seriously
Except they didn't? Ukraine got the money and the prosecutor wasn't fired until months later.

Also if the head of Burisma thought hiring Hunter could protect him, why the fuck did he flee to Russia?

Uh huh.
>>

>So you're saying Joe lied?
Yes. Joe lied when he said the aid would be withheld. Lying is a part of international negotiations/politics.

What is wrong with you that you think politicians are honest? Lying generally makes someone a better politicians. The last president is under indictment for all the fraud. Hell, you can even get elected purely based on lies like that former House rep ALSO under indictment for all the fraud.

Lying liars lie.
