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.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

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.

Biden Said He Received Full Scholarship, Graduated Top of His Law School Class — He Lied

And he plagiarized, too…

As a career politician, Joe Biden knows a thing or two about lying. Even though he has been caught telling falsehoods many, many times over, the mainstream media and his supporters still decide to look the other way. For example, here’s a quote from Joe, speaking to a reporter, while running for president in 1988: “I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect. I went to law school on a full academic scholarship, the only one in my — in my class to have a full academic scholarship. In the first year in law school I decided didn’t want to be in law school and ended up in the bottom two-thirds of my class, and then decided I wanted to stay, went back to law school, and in fact ended up in the top half of my class. I won the international moot-court competition. I was the outstanding student in the political science department at the end of my year. I graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school and 165 credits — I only needed 123 credits. And I’d be delighted to sit down and compare my IQ to yours if you’d like Frank.” The problem is that literally nothing in that statement is true. None of it. From The Daily Wire: It turned out that Biden did not receive a full academic scholarship, but a half scholarship based on financial need. He did not end up in the top half of his class, but near the very bottom. There is no record of him winning the moot court competition. He did not receive the outstanding student award at the University of Delaware. And he graduated with only one degree. For the record, this is Biden’s third run for POTUS (1988, 2008, 2020). After…

I Will Nominate A Woman for Supreme Court Next Week, Trump Says At North Carolina Rally

This third pick needs to be a person that will have conservatives cheering.

Donald Trump’s presidency has already been historic for a number of reasons. He will add to his legacy in the coming days, when he nominates a third person to the Supreme Court in just his first term. Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh have sided with the liberal wing of SCOTUS from time to time, so those two choices weren’t exactly home runs. Still, they definitely lean right. This third pick needs to be a person that will have conservatives cheering.

Notably, Barrett was one of the finalists when Trump was considering a replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy, whose seat was later filled by Justice Brett Kavanaugh. According to USA Today, Judge Barbara Lagoa, 52, a recent addition to the list of potential Supreme Court nominees, is considered a “little-known” front-runner. The news agency reports that Trump briefly mentioned her during remarks to reporters on Saturday, saying that he has “heard at length” about her, and that she is “highly respected.” Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…
