Joe Manchin Breaks With Senate Dems, Says Hunter Biden Is Relevant Witness In Impeachment Trial

Published

on

Sen. Joe Manchin has decided to take a rather unpopular stance among Democratic senators by stating clearly that former Vice President and current Democratic Party presidential candidate, Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, is a relevant witness to the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump.

This is certainly not going to make Manchin any friends in Congress, that’s for sure.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

Trending: Trump Steps Back From Insurrection Act, But Not Before Military Leaders Issue Strong Rebuke

The West Virginia senator was asked Wednesday whether 2020 candidate Joe Biden’s son is a “relevant witness” ahead of a vote later this week on calling witnesses to testify.

“I think so. I really do. I don’t have a problem there because this is why we are where we are. Now, I think that he can clear himself — what I know, what I’ve heard. But being afraid to put anybody that might have pertinent information is wrong, no matter if you’re a Democrat or Republican,” Manchin told MSBNC’s Morning Joe.

Trump’s impeachment team has painted the former vice president and his son as corrupt actors who should be investigated. Hunter Biden sat on the board of a Ukrainian gas company while his father was vice president.

At the center of Democrats’ impeachment case is that Trump abused the power of his office by trying to condition military aid to Ukraine on the country launching an investigation into the Bidens. Most Democrats have dismissed Republican calls to bring in Hunter Biden as a witness.

Last week, Sen. Chuck Schumer said that Democrats would not bother considering a deal with their colleagues across the aisle to call witnesses to testify in the trial in exchange for Biden’s testimony. This makes you wonder why they are so adamant about avoiding bringing the younger Biden in for questioning, doesn’t it?

People who have nothing to hide usually aren’t afraid to answer a few simple questions. This definitely seems a bit fishy.

House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff said that calling Biden to testify would be “an illegitimate abuse of the trial.”

In other words, liberals are afraid that what Biden says under oath could demolish the faulty case they’ve built against the president as part of their coup to toss him out office before the 2020 election in November.

Gretchen Whitmer Takes Heat For Marching With Protesters After Months Of Cracking Down With Social Distancing Orders

Published

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is taking a whole lot of heat after she decided to violate her own lockdown orders in order to march shoulder-to-shoulder with protesters in a march to support George Floyd who was killed at the hands of a law enforcement officer in Minneapolis. Whitmer was photographed participating in the event, sitting side-by-side with activists who were demanding that police brutality be brought to an end. The photograph has angered many residents, along with GOP Rep. Lynn Afendoulis. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Social distancing is critical to stop the spread of COVID-19—unless you have a great photo op. ⁦And control,” Afendoulis tweeted. https://twitter.com/LynnAfendoulis/status/1268623499142279168 Whitmer maintained some of the strictest social distancing guidelines in the nation throughout the coronavirus pandemic, many of which are still in effect — including a mandate to maintain 6 feet of separation in public gatherings. A spokeswoman for Whitmer, Tiffany Brown, denied the governor violated her own social distancing guidelines by attending the protests. “The governor took precautions for engaging in an outdoor activity, including wearing a mask even though it is not required outdoors under the order,” Brown told the Detroit News. She also noted that the order included a provision that said: “Nothing in this order shall be taken to abridge protections guaranteed by the state or federal constitution.” Brown went on to add that “includes the right to peaceful protest. The state’s website has a FAQ section that says any protest requires participants to be six feet apart as per the usual social distancing guidelines. “Persons may engage in expressive activities protected by the First Amendment within the State of Michigan but must adhere to social distancing measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including remaining at least six feet from people from outside the…

Stacey Abrams Says She’s Not Joined In Protesting So As Not To ‘Distract From Their Message’

Published

on

Failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams came out and stated that she’s not joined in the protests happening across her state because she’s afraid her presence will distract from the message being pushed by those who are putting on these events. Abrams, who failed to win the governorship of Georgia, appeared on CNN where she revealed the reason for her absence during an interview. “I appreciate the instinct of leaders to join in these protests, but too often, our presence distracts from their message,” she said. Reports indicate that Abrams is actually on the short list of potential vice president candidates for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign. Abrams did reveal that she’s helping the movement responsible for the protests by helping to secure money for bail and lawyers for those who are arrested. “I understand the instinct to be there. But having been on the other side, having been an activist and a protester, I have a very visceral reaction, and my conscience tells me I need to stay out of the way and let the attention focus on the demonstrators,” Abrams added. Check out more from The Washington Examiner: As a college student, Abrams helped lead protests after Los Angeles police officers were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King, a black construction worker, in 1992. Floyd, an unarmed black man, died last week after a white police officer in Minneapolis pressed a knee to his neck for more than nine minutes. Floyd lost consciousness and was later pronounced dead at a hospital. It seems more likely that Abrams is just trying to keep herself out of trouble by not joining in on the protests. However, she’s definitely doing her part to keep the unruly chaos active by bailing out criminals and vandals, so perhaps it’s best she not show up…
