Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 07, 2019

Joe Biden's Deputy Campaign Manager, Kate Bedingfield, appeared on MSNBC to talk about the veep's opinion piece in the Washington Post. During the interview she made a rather shocking admission: Hunter Biden received permission from the Obama White House to sit on the Ukrainian oil company's board of directors in his $600,000 per year "job":

"There were unfounded claims against him. But he doesn't get explicit about Hunter himself. Why is that, Kate?" host Hallie Jackson asked.

"He has. He's been asked and he said, Look, every single independent outlet that's looked into this has said there was no issue of wrongdoing here.' And you know in 2014 the White House cleared Hunter serving on that board," Bedingfield said. "So he has absolutely been asked that question and he's answered it many times."

When asked for clarification, the Biden Campaign refused to comment.

And here I thought that Creepy Uncle Joe never talked about Burisma with his son...

Was he recused from the WH meetings that approved Hunter serving on that board?

This is breathtaking. How many more lies are the Dems going to say about this?

At this point, we need to know what did Obama know and when did he know it. After that is answered, we move onto Biden. His claims of being clueless about life in general seems to be a pretty solid defense.

Breathtaking? I can think of a hundred things politicians have done that would rate as "breathtaking " but this one doesn't qualify. Shady? Yes

Here's the problem, as long as we choose a side the political football stays in motion. Instead of taking responsibility and punishing our political leaders we make justification for them by pointing the finger at the other side. And while we're arguing with each other our politicians are being bought by the highest bidder. But at least 50% of the time, someone gets to cheer that their side won.

This pretend scandal is sort of hilarious when you think about the Bush family followed by the Trump family.

Sure! Right after we get to the bottom of Trump's numerous issues.

Fair?

#2 Obama knew how to be a competent, compassionate and honorable POTUS.
He learned that while serving US citizens.

Too bad trampy never learned.

First identify a crime or else quit babbling your nonsense.

The IG report regarding the Carter Page FISA warrants is due to be released any day now.

That should give a good inkling as to any crime, which I think is highly unlikely.

Neat.

FakeLawyer and his favorite political party are desperate AF to change to change the subject as their Orange Fuhrer is starting to circle the drain.

Pass the hot buttered popcorn.
