    Pelosi Held Articles to Help Joe Biden No Different than 2016


    https-::www.breitbart.com:clips:2020:01:25:rick-scott-pelosi-held-articles-to-help-joe-biden-no-different-than-2016:




    During the Fox News Channel’s Senate impeachment trial coverage on Saturday, Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) stated that he has concluded that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) delayed transmitting the House’s articles of impeachment to the Senate to keep 2020 Democratic presidential candidates Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) “off the campaign trail” and assist 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden.

    Scott said, “I think I’ve come to a conclusion why Nancy Pelosi held that thing — held the articles of impeachment for 33 days. This whole thing is to help Joe Biden. I mean, all of this is to keep Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren off the campaign trail and help Joe Biden. I think this is all — this is no different than what happened to Sanders back in 2016.”

    Of course she held them to help Joe, what other reason could she possibly have?

    I doubt anybody will get an apology this time around, unlike 2016.

    Bidens claim contradicts the testimony of several of the witnesses Democrats themselves called in the House impeachment inquiry.

    George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau at the State Department, told the House Intelligence Committee that Biden had an apparent conflict of interest because his son, Hunter Biden, had been appointed to a well-compensated position on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, that was widely perceived to be corrupt.

    Kent said that he brought the issue up in 2015: I raised my concerns [with the vice presidents staff] that I had heard that Hunter Biden was on the board of a company owned by somebody that the U.S. Government had spent money trying to get tens of milljons of dollars back and that could create the perception of a conflict of interest.


    He added that the vice presidents office had said that Biden was too busy dealing with the tragic death of his other son, Beau. But nothing was done afterwards, either.


    Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch told the committee that she had been specifically briefed by the Obama administration before her confirmation hearing not to answer questions about Bidens conflict of interest, but to direct all questions to the vice presidents office, instead.


    Reporters had first raised the question of Bidens apparent conflict of interest in 2014, after Hunter Bidens appointment, but nothing was apparently done about it.


    Biden himself admitted last week that the arrangement looked bad.

    It's a conspiracy theory, similar to all conspiracy theories, and I post very few, if any, opinion pieces. Unless you, like most right wingers, consider facts to be opinions.

    Some opinion pieces have more merit than others. This thread is just plain irrelevant and silly.


    The criteria the moderators have for what constitute a "spam" thread is based on their own individual bias.

    It still amazes me this thread was moved to Spam for no good reason, except it hurt a moderators feelings.

    The Totally Unworkable and Dishonest Bernie Single Payer Scam of Snake Oil


    Not only was that thread incredibly important, it was substantive. AND, it still is front and center in importance and relevance in 2020 as it was in 2016. And then taking the extreme step of locking it down was really petty and partisan.

    How quickly we forget...

    Nancy Pelosi held on to the articles of impeachment in response to Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham stating, unequivocally, that they would not be impartial in the Senate trial.

    So she sat on them in hopes of new revelations surfacing while she waited it out.

    Her gamble, insofar, has paid off as new information has indeed surfaced, which she wants to amplify to the public.

    And I'll repeat what I've said for months: none of this will lead to Trump's removal. But it will certainly make the news and reinforce what every sane American has been saying since day one. That Trump is a corrupt con-man and a grifter.

    True. But what she did only really matters if the Senate votes to call witnesses. That's what Pelosi was trying to get, a real trial. As of now the answer is still no. I can see 3 pub Senators voting for witnesses as of now but they need 6 or 7 because noone wants to be the 4th and deciding vote. So we'll see. If they do get witnesses what she did will be historical. Trump will still be acquitted but he could be damaged. And he will still have the trial pending when he gives the SOTU so he won't be able to spike the football.

    "No different than 2016"??? Did Pelosi hold articles in 2016?

    Also....the articles of impeachment were passed on Dec. 18. Exactly a week before Christmas. With the very real chance....no....EXPECTATION, that Moscow Mitch would bury this and try for quick dismissal under the radar because of the holidays, would have Pelosi committing political malpractice if she sent the articles over immediately.

    Nancy is the best Speaker of the House in a couple of generations. She's smart, shrewd, ruthless and knows what the **** she is doing. She runs circles around the dunce Trump.
