Graham launches probe of Bidens, Burisma and Ukraine

Source: Washington Post

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey O. Graham sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday requesting documents related to former vice president Joe Biden and his communications with Ukrainian officials, a step seen as a GOP effort to counter the House impeachment investigation of President Trump.

The inquiry by Graham (R-S.C.) is focused on any calls Biden may have had with Petro Poroshenko, then the Ukrainian president, regarding the firing of the country's top prosecutor, as well as any that referenced an investigation of Burisma, the Ukrainian natural-gas company that employed Biden's son Hunter Biden.

Graham's document request suggests he is seeking to legitimize Trump's accusations that Biden, then vice president, put pressure on Ukraine to fire its lead prosecutor to protect his son, a claim without evidence that has been disputed by officials familiar with the investigation.

Graham, one of Trump's fiercest defenders on Capitol Hill, told The Washington Post in late October that he was under intense pressure to launch an investigation into Biden by Trump and his allies.

In October Graham said he would not turn to Senate into a circus. Send in the clowns. Don't bother they're here.

4. As of right now I don't think this is necessarily a big deal

Look at it this way: they were going to do this to the Bidens no matter what. Trump was just a couple of days away from getting the Ukrainians to announce investigations which would have sent the media into speculation overdrive. Even if ultimately there was no “there” there — like Benghazi — the GOP would go into full bore smear mode, with the media playing along.

But now, that plan now completely blown up in their faces. A majority of the country thinks that Trump’s illegitimate attempt to investigate the Bidens was impeachable. In the minds of the public, the idea of an investigation into the Bidens is directly linked to wrong-doing on the part of Trump.

So Graham can have his investigation, but given everything that’s happened it’s going to be a lot harder now to convince the public that what he’s doing isn’t just another partisan smear job.

19. They need something to give the base in 2020 elections

The worse the impeachment looks, the more it will drive Democratic turnout, and turn true independents to the Democrats this time; so Republican senators need something to shore up their vote, after they've voted to ignore evidence and let Trump off. Because their base and most potential Republican voters are stupid and negligent, it doesn't have to be anything with real substance; they just need a new "but her emails" that they can chant on TV.

For political gain , just like the Hillary's attacks and accusations were. This also shows they've conspired using OUR government by abuse of power to go after political opposition, again. Graham and others when Democrats gain full control will become exposed, with everyone else, and they were working for putin. Republicans have to know this will all be exposed against them all that's involved. Just more putin tactics used by trump and the GOP that'll show they were treasonous and corrupt all along. Redirect attention away from trump by accusing his opposition using a corrupted GOP in Congress. No rule of law, no truth is now what they want for trump and themselves.

43. Rodent Fornication

That's all this is. Generate an appearance of impropriety to rile up the base and cast doubt amongst the independents. You only need to start an investigation and keep it going as long as possible to do damage. I say the house should open investigations on McConnell's wife for directing federal monies for KY road projects or any other high profile "targets" they can come up with.

Like I've said before, the Dems would do good investigating all the state's which receive more federal money than they pay in and set up some type of austerity bill making any future cuts in government programs fall more proportionally on states that receive more federal money than they pay in (I'd even include SS).

48. It's time to recognize that most of the Republican Party is a criminal enterprise.

They care only about their power and how that power can make them wealthy. I’m convinced that at least some in Congress have sold out to Russia (Ron Johnson, Graham, Nunes, McConnell, probably more) and are being traitors to this country. It’s been said here before, but I feel as though we’re on the edge of an abyss. Are we losing the communication message when impeachment support seems to be declining? As Dr. Hill said yesterday, Russia is already meddling in the 2020 election and it will get worse. How do we as average citizens counter that? I am donating and will work to register voters and encourage people to vote, but somehow it feels as though we are Sisyphus pushing the boulder up the hill right now.

If Joe Biden gets taken out of the primaries, the Democrats might end up with an actual progressive candidate.
If that happens, the Republicans just might get slaughtered in the next election.

58. This move is a defensive one, meant to smooth out the dents that Trump's image

 

has suffered by the impeachment hearings, more than it is a move against Biden.

Priority # 1 for the GOP is to win another presidential term.
- They continue to support 45 because they think he is their best. If we were now in his second term, they'd be all for impeaching 45 and installing Pence. There's no love lost.
- They think Biden has the best shot at defeating 45, because they think like conservatives. I agree with you that 45 might ultimately be at greater risk from a progressive.
- When a progressive takes the lead, they will start attacking him/her.

61. Gee, I wonder what they are going to do if Biden isn't the nominee

Here's what we know
1. The Senate will do nothing about the real criminal who currently resides in the White House, most likely because they are in on the crime.

2. The Senate will pursue phony allegations against Biden so that in the case of Biden becoming the nominee they can Benghazi him and keep the orange moron in the White House somehow, that is make plausible that the American public is willing to keep trump in office because Biden is so damn corrupt (this of course is the cover story so that Putin can once again do his work on altering vote totals).


It's so fucking transparent I really don't know why anyone with sense even is willing to play this game anymore.

62. I would have expected the Republicans to have gone over every

Obama admin document already looking for any malfeasnce they could use. So I don't know if they are just trying to distract of if they are planning something more nefarious (like "creating" evidence). I think that is what Igor, Lev, and the Ghoul were up to, with an assist from the FSB/Russian intelligence.

63. They just want the headline:

The Dem presidential candidate is under investigation, right up to the end. The same thing they did to Hillary and the emails. They are going for the same effect they hoped for if the Ukrainians had done their dirty work for them.

I doubt the Bidens will refuse subpoenas. Nothing will be found, but they will say, See--he was investigated, not that he is being investigated.

And to carry this to their ultimate wet dream conclusion, Joe would drop out of the race to get them off Hunter's back, even though he did nothing wrong.

65. Benghazi II

Here we go.

It seems all the Rs have is this kind of thing. Seems they admit the issues won't win anything for them.

74. Breaking via NYT: IG Horowitz "made no finding of politically biased actions"

The DOJ IG report "debunks a series of conspiracy theories and insinuations about the FBI that Mr. Trump and his allies have put forward." IG Horowitz "made no finding of politically biased actions" by top Comey, McCabe and Strzok.
https://www.nytimes.com/201...
This is certainly not what Fox News has been telling folks! They will lie about anything!

Kinda seems that William Barr might have some 'splainin to do about his prior insinuations of nefarious conduct, including his allegation that there was "spying" going on..Barr should serve time along with Rump.

Lindsey is having a bleeding nose about now. The way he hyper-hype it on Hannity show the other day you would think that his godfather was vindicated. He got so excited that he scheduled a hearing for 11th Dec even before a date was fixed for the report to be released(9th Dec) He said he had a meeting with Barr and the report would be sickening and damning. Did he forget to ask, “for whom?” How long before Trump claims the IG is a Never Trumper?

76. tit for tat, and try to stick it to the libs.

another fishing expedition, likely at the behest of the amoral pig in the WH.

The Senate doing scut work for our dictator in waiting.

They won't find anything, but they will make sh*t up.

Watch.

77. Reminder--announcing an investigation is an end unto itself

Worth a couple of news cycles, later to be dropped due to complete lack of news....like the commission on voter fraud that was disbanded because there was none.
