Joe Biden: Lindsey Graham Will ‘Regret’
Investigating Me ‘His Whole Life’

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 11/22/2019 8:05:47 PM

Former Vice President Joe Biden threatened Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for launching an investigation into his activities with Ukraine while in the Obama White House, stating the Republican will “regret” the move his “whole life.” On Thursday, Graham sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting documents to aid in determining whether Biden pushed for the firing of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin to squash a sweeping probe into Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy giant where his son, Hunter Biden, served as a board member. The younger Biden was compensated generously, making up to $83,000 a month for several years while on the Burisma’s board.

Comments:

Yes, that is a threat. A serious threat leveled to intimidate a United States Senator and Judicial Committee Chairman … It will be interesting to see what Lindsey does with this. I would throw the book at Joe and let him regret his indiscretion.

FTA: The senator requested all documents and communications related to Joe Biden’s phone calls with Poroshenko on Feb. 11, 18 and 19, and March 22, 2016, citing media reports that they discussed previous demands to dismiss Shokin for alleged corruption before he was removed from office on March 29, 2016. Graham also requested documents and communications between Joe Biden and his office and Poroshenko and his office between Feb. 2, 2016, when Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky’s home was raided and Shokin’s dismissal. Graham is also seeking all documents and communications related to a meeting between Devon Archer, a business partner of Hunter Biden, and then-Secretary of State John Kerry on March 2, 2016. Go, Lindsey! KAG!!!!!

Joe Biden is too stupid to know he is being thrown under the bus as a means to get the president. No one cares about him, especially not the members of his own party. He is about as threatening as a limp dishrag.

One thing is for sure, both Joe Biden and Adam Schiff believe, as the Democrats have “really” been casting out upon the country lately, that Biden is above the law. Before long we will see if Lindsey Graham also “really” believes that? As essentially Biden was instructing Graham with his unwise comment.

A few conservative bloggers are panicked. They believe a Republican Senate will convict President Donald John Trump and remove him from office. They genuinely believe this because they do not trust the party. Let me talk them down off the ledge. This won't happen. 1. Republicans overwhelmingly approve of Donald John Trump. The lines start forming two days before his rallies begin. There is always an overflow crowd and he almost dragged the least popular governor in America over the finish line in Kentucky. Reuters put his approval at 82%. Politicians will not turn their back on 82% of their base. 2. President Trump is an ATM.

From their elite cocoon, they continue to indulge the hauteur that put off ordinary voters who had grown tired of a fossilized political class that serially ignored their interests, and seemed more concerned with their own insider perks and privilege, rather than in repairing the damage that decades of bipartisan progressive technocracy had inflicted on the Constitutional order.

After years of steadfast support from the cultural Right, Chick-fil-A has betrayed that support.

BALDWIN, Fla. - When Sean Lynch ran for mayor, he never anticipated that the job would involve hiring a butcher and tracking the sale of collard greens. But in 2018, two years into his first term, the only grocery store in town shut down. People in this rural northeast Florida outpost were left with few options. They could leave town, driving 10 miles through road construction to nearby Macclenny or battling 20 miles of freeway traffic through Jacksonville's suburban sprawl. They could cobble together a meal out of canned goods from the local Dollar General, or head to a nearby truck stop for deep-fried fast food.
