Cruz Attempts To Draw Biden, Whistleblower Into Testifying At Senate Impeachment Trial By Floating Witness Reciprocity

Published

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a well known, die-hard conservative constitutionalist, is attempting to draw former Vice President Joe Biden and the whistleblower who kicked off the impeachment proceedings against President Trump to come forward and testify in the Senate trial by floating the idea of witness reciprocity.

Cruz pitched the idea to GOP leadership on Tuesday after announcing in December that they wanted to subpoena former national security adviser John Bolton, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, and other top aides to Trump.

His proposed strategy would mean that if Democrats call their witnesses, Republicans could call their own as well, such as former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, and the whistleblower at the center of the impeachment process.

“We’ll be dealing with the witness issue at the appropriate time into the trial. And I think it’s certainly appropriate to point out that both sides would want to call witnesses if they wanted to hear from them,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said about Cruz’s idea, according to Fox News. “So if you get to that issue, I can’t imagine that only the witnesses our Democratic colleagues want to call will be called.”

House Democrats passed two articles of impeachment against Trump late last year for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress after Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. During the call, Trump asked Zelensky to “do us a favor” and investigate corruption allegations against Biden and his son’s business dealings in the country. Crucial military aid to Ukraine was then temporarily held up.

Bolton, according to aides familiar with the White House’s relations to Ukraine, was uncomfortable with what he called a “drug deal” of a policy on Ukraine.

This is a win-win strategy for Republicans. If Democrats want to get at Bolton and others, this provides them with an opportunity to grill Biden over his arm twisting of a Ukraine prosecutor during an investigation into his son’s business dealings. If they deny it, then they don’t get the opportunity to have Bolton and things move forward.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens with Cruz’s idea, but it certainly couldn’t hurt anything.

Liberal privilege on full display.

Imagine the kind of field day the press would have if a late-night talk show host treated Eric, Ivanka, or Don Jr. with kid gloves. They would go absolutely berserk. Then again, when you’re a liberal, there is literally nothing you can’t get away with. Lest we forget when it comes to the son of the current president, Hunter Biden is not only a drug addict but he fathered a child with a stipper and dated his deceased brother’s wife for a year. The guy is the whole package! From New York Post: Hunter Biden continued his lovefest with an adoring, understanding, thoroughly enchanted media last night with a lengthy spot on Jimmy Kimmel. Never have two people found crack addiction so funny, or international influence-peddling so banal, or obvious lies so easy to explain away. CONTINUED: “The laptop,” Kimmel said. Now this is the laptop that contains thousands of emails and texts from Hunter Biden to his father, wife, sister-in-law-turned-mistress, his sister-in-law’s married sister, who also becomes his mistress (try to keep up), drug dealers and prostitutes and colleagues at Burisma, the Ukrainian company that paid him $50,000 a month for God knows what.

An issue none of us had ANYTHING to do with!

What kind of person with even a shred of pride would accept money for something that in no way affected their life? Conversely, what kind of person would support such nonsense? It is absolutely insane how far the left has taken things. From Fox News: The House took a step forward on a slavery reparations bill Friday by scheduling it for debate and a vote in the Judiciary Committee. The bill would set up a commission to study reparations. If voted out of committee, the matter would come up on the House floor for the first time since 1989. The late Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., introduced slavery reparations legislation in the House each session for nearly 30 years to no avail. CONTINUED: Committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said the measure, which is widely opposed by Republicans, is “not intended to divide” but to “bring us closer to racial understanding and advancement.” “Today we still live with racial disparities in access to education, health care, housing, insurance, employment and other social goods that are directly attributable to the damaging legacy of slavery and government-sponsored racial discrimination,” Nadler said in a statement.
