Take the latest Ukraine debacle that’s setting the Democrats’ hair on fire.
Elizabeth Warren and other Dems are calling for Trump to be impeached — once again — this time over a July phone call he had with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in which Trump reportedly pressured him to investigate Joe Biden’s son’s financial dealings in the Ukraine, in what appears to be a legitimate bribery and corruption scheme that took place during the Obama administration.
Despite there being nothing illegal about the reported exchange, an unnamed whistleblower who curiously claims to have knowledge of the classified phone call has filed a complaint with the Intelligence Department’s Inspector General citing an “urgent concern.”
Democrats were quick to pounce, accusing the president of working with a foreign nation to target political opponents and other wrongdoing — despite The Wall Street Journal reporting there was no quid pro quo. Trump echoed the point on the South Lawn of the White House on Saturday. “No quid pro quo, there was nothing,” he told reporters. “It was a perfect conversation.”
Trump also tweeted, “ ‘Ukraine Foreign Minister disputes reports of any pressure from Trump. This conversation was long, friendly, and it touched on many questions.’ @NBCAdriana News Correct. If your looking for something done wrong, just look at the tape of Sleepy Joe. He is being protected by the Media!”
Democrats, feigning outrage, say Trump speaking with a foreign nation to allegedly get dirt on a political opponent is grounds for impeachment. But when the left does the same exact thing that’s A-OK.
Take the Russian sourced dossier the DNC and Clinton campaign paid millions for that was used against the 2016 Trump campaign.
Was that not “colluding” with a foreign nation to meddle in our Democracy?
And there’s the DNC contractor Alexandra Chalupa who the Ukraine Embassy says sought dirt on Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort during the last presidential election.
Democrats and #Fake-NewsMedia are also uninterested in Joe Biden strong-arming Ukraine officials in what appears to be a real quid pro quo.
Last year, Biden bragged at a Council on Foreign Affairs event that while he was Obama’s Veep he threatened former Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko that if he didn’t fire its prosecutor who was investigating a natural gas company where his son Hunter Biden had a directorship they wouldn’t get a billion dollar loan from the U.S.
“You’re not getting the billion,” Biden threatened. “I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.” Biden boasted on video. “Well, son of a b*tch, he got fired.”
Of course the left doesn’t care about that nor do their comrades in media — because “the rules” never apply to Democrats.
