Eight years of abuse of President Donald Trump culminated in the 37 felony count indictment that was unsealed on Friday. The 49-page document alleges the mishandling of classified documents after he left the White House.
President Joe Biden was found to have classified documents at his home, in his garage and in his office, which received communist Chinese donations, and nothing has happened to him. In fact, the Special Counsel named to investigate this issue has been quiet and has not even interviewed Biden.
In contrast, Trump’s Special Counsel, Jack Smith, has been aggressive and subpoenaed dozens of employees at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home. At his press conference on Friday, Smith ludicrously said that “We have one set of laws in this country. They apply to everyone.”
Really? Hillary Clinton was not prosecuted for sending and receiving 33,000 emails, including top secret and classified materials, using an unsecured computer. While President Trump faces 400 years in prison, Clinton received a pass from former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey who infamously claimed that “Although there is evidence of potential violations regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
Clinton is not the only Democrat to be excused for reprehensible behavior. Some Republicans have demanded impeachments for Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, but nothing has happened.
These Biden administration officials should not be the real impeachment target, it should be the President. He is the one who is facing allegations that he accepted a $5 million bribe from a Ukrainian official.
The FBI document, FD 10-23, was finally seen by House Oversight Committee Republicans on Thursday in a secure room. The FBI Director refused to produce the subpoenaed document for the entire Congress and the American people to examine. He should have been held in contempt of Congress, but Republicans caved.
While this should have made major news, it was suspiciously eclipsed by the Trump indictment that was announced on the same day. Of course, the plan was to suppress the Biden allegations with more Trump abuse.
The Deep State has been targeting Trump since the day he descended the “golden escalator” to announce his 2016 presidential campaign.
The “Russian collusion” hoax was the first way the FBI tried to destroy Donald Trump. It was a lie from the beginning, as outlined in the Durham Report. Nevertheless, the FBI lied to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, known as the FISA Court, three times. They obtained the ability to spy on a Trump official and gain access to Trump’s campaign and his presidency.
In 2020, the FBI suppressed information about the Hunter Biden laptop from being disseminated on social media to defeat Trump. In that campaign, 51 intelligence officials publicly stated that the truthful laptop information was probably just “Russian disinformation.”
In this election, Trump, Biden’s leading opponent, is facing charges in New York, an investigation in Georgia and now multiple investigations from the Special Counsel.
As this abuse has been hurled on President Trump for eight years, the Republicans talk tough on Twitter, but deliver nothing.
Republicans should demand that Biden submit to a mental competency test, but they refuse. The corruption from his family, including his brother and son, is breathtaking. The “Big Guy” lied when he claimed he knew nothing about Hunter’s business. He also publicly bragged about shutting down a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating Hunter’s business by threatening to withhold a $1 billion loan guarantee.
With mounting evidence, Republicans should initiate impeachment hearings for Biden, but have delivered only rhetoric. U.S. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) says she is “dumbfounded” that Republicans are not joining her in supporting Biden’s impeachment.
While Biden evades responsibility, Trump faces the prospect of spending the rest of his life in prison for politicized charges. He is the first President to face two unfair impeachments, two Special Counsels, an FBI raid of his home, multiple criminal indictments, and biased investigations in left-wing jurisdictions.
He was charged under the Espionage Act, which has never been used against a President in our 247-year history. Yet, unhinged prosecutors in the Biden administration do not care about precedent or dividing the nation. They are determined to prevent Trump from getting elected President again.
In contrast, House Republicans are too scared to impeach a President who deserves it more than any other in our nation’s history. If Biden is not impeached, House Republicans should abdicate their power and turn it back over to the Democrats.
The one disruptor is facing the mighty weight of the federal government against him. His only true allies are the seventy-five million Americans who voted for him.
The latest witch hunt will only embolden his voters. Too bad House Republicans do not possess similar courage.
