Former VP Joe Biden, in an interview with "Axios on HBO," promised to prohibit his son Hunter from cashing in on his name and position overseas in the future if he wins the presidency. Biden told Axios' Mike Allen that he has not dug into what Hunter actually did while working in Ukraine. "I don't know what he was doing. I know he was on the board. I found out he was on the board after he was on the board and that was it," Biden told us.

Asked whether he wants to get to the bottom of it, Biden said, "No. Because I trust my son."

Hunter, who had recently been discharged from the Navy for drug use, was hired by Burisma and paid more than $80,000 a month despite the fact that Hunter had no relevant experience. When Hunter was hired by Burisma, the company was mired in a corruption scandal and VP Biden was the point man on Ukraine for the United States. read more

Eight people, including a longtime political networker and a CEO, have been indicted on charges of funneling money illegally into Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and other political groups. read more


The impeachment investigation of President Trump is now moving to the Judiciary Committee. Soon, if the House votes to impeach Trump, the ball will be in the Senate's court, where a conviction seems unlikely. America should thus consider Rep. Jerrold Nadler's warning about going forward: Impeachment, he's on record as saying, requires "a broad consensus of the American public, a broad agreement of almost everybody, that this fellow has got to go because he's a clear and present danger to our liberty and to our Constitution."

A bigger problem for Nadler, though, is that he said this in 1998, when he was denouncing the Republicans' impeachment of President Bill Clinton. Now, Nadler says "impeachment is imperative." In reversing his position, Nadler has plenty of company on both sides of the aisle.

But politicians from both parties are using impeachment as a political weapon more often today than ever before, which runs the risk of making it the new "normal." read more

Vanity Fair: As details of Trump's Ukrainian phone call spilled out, and as House Democrats revved the impeachment engine, early polls evidenced strong support for removing Donald Trump from office. Though much of that support came from Democrats, critically, it also came from Independents: A late October Gallup poll put Independents in favor of removing Trump from office at 53% to 44%, and a Morning Consult poll in early November revealed an even greater gap, 49% to 34%, in favor of removal.

Alas, for the Democrats, the promising numbers of late October and early November rapidly dissipated, and polling numbers have reverted to a level more consistent with long-term opinions on President Trump. In the latest Politico/Morning Consult poll, released on November 19, Independents opposed impeachment and removal from office 46% to 39%, a number close to the rolling averages of the last few weeks. This is nothing but bad news for the Democrats heading into 2020. read more

It is testimony by Horowitz like this that lead CNN/NYT/WashPo and all their hangers on to ignore the Horowitz hearing because it was so devastating to The Narrative that they have been forcing down the true believers throats for the past two years.

LOL, you were claiming that you were unsettled about a weaponized DOJ and I pointed out that Holder did the same thing and it didn't bother you in the slightest.

For Attorney General Eric Holder, Justice is for Democrats only

And before you reflexively STS, many of the findings in this article were subsequently admitted by the DOJ in various settlements, including the IRS settlement as well as Court rulings taking the Holder DOJ to task for its actions.
