YES OR NO? GOP Biden Basher Can’t Answer Hannity’s Question About Bogus Bribery Allegations

The razor thin Republican majority in the House of Representatives is continuing to dig furiously for any crumb of contrived corruption on the part of President Biden and/or other Democrats. In that pursuit they have held numerous hearings that inevitably resulted in humiliation for the GOP scandal mongers.

Leading the charge are devoted Trump toadies Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee. Between them they have managed to obsessively hype countless crackpot conspiracy theories that have resulted in unequivocal exonerations of the targets of their political animus.

The latest red herring they have been chasing has turned around and bit them in their fat arsenals of slander-bait. For several weeks they have been boasting that Devon Archer, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, would be coming to Congress and providing “bombshell” testimony that would send the entire Biden family to prison. On Monday Archer finally showed up and gave testimony that contradicted everything that the Republican shills had promised. Axios published a summary of the testimony that said…

“Archer testified that Hunter put his father on the phone with friends and business associates roughly 20 times over 10 years.”
That’s a grand total of twice a year.

“Archer ‘repeated over and over and over again that President Biden never discussed any business dealings or interests with Hunter or anyone else,'”
So Republicans outright lied about that.

“Archer testified that he knew nothing about the alleged $5 million bribes paid to the Biden family.”
So Republicans outright lied about that too.

“Archer also testified that Burisma believed efforts to oust Ukrainian prosecutor general Viktor Shokin were bad for the Ukrainian energy company.”
Consequently, Biden’s efforts to oust the prosecutor were bad for Hunter as well.

Following that disaster, Comer rushed over to Fox News for a propaganda fest with Sean Hannity. But he even failed to achieve his dishonest disinformation goals in that friendly environment…

Hannity: Yes or no. Do you believe that this is now officially the Joe Biden bribery allegation, and do you believe that you will be able to prove that?
Comer: I sure hope so. And I do believe that there’s a lot of smoke and where there’s smoke there’s fire. And we just heard testimony today that Joe Biden has lied to that American people.

Comer’s reply to Hannity’s straightforward inquiry is telling. Comer could not give Hannity the “yes or no” response that he asked for. Instead, Comer gave a wimpy “I sure hope so.” Which is not a statement of confidence in the guilt of those he’s accusing. It’s just an expression of his blatant, unfounded, partisan desires. A prosecutor doesn’t go into court and tell the judge that he doesn’t have any evidence, but “I sure hope” to get a guilty verdict anyway.

What’s more, Comer’s allusion to the presence of smoke and/or fire is more harmful to his Dear Leader Donald Trump than to Biden. For Trump there are already more than 70 felony counts filed against him that are well supported by material evidence and witness testimony. Whereas the only thing wafting from the Biden controversy are the fumes fanned by lying Republicans.

There is also no truth to Comer’s assertion that Biden lied to that American people. To the contrary, Archer, the GOP’s own witness, confirms that everything that Biden said previously about his not having discussed business with his son, was true.

Much of what Comer and other Republicans have based their conspiracy talk on were allegations that Biden pressured Ukrainian President Zelenskyy to fire a prosecutor who was supposedly working on a case involving Burisma, the company that Hunter was affiliated with. However, Biden was executing the policy of the U.S. government (and the E.U., and the IMF) to get rid of a corrupt prosecutor who was not, in fact, investigating Burisma. Biden’s efforts actually worked against Hunter’s financial interests. Comer, and the rest of the GOP, know this, but pretend not to. Which results in utterly dishonest messages like this one from Marjorie Taylor Greene…

Greene is correct that Archer told the Committee that Biden and his son spoke 20 times. But he also explicitly said that they never discussed business. And Greene’s deliberate distortions are representative of the GOP’s take on these matters overall. Clearly, reality has a hard time coexisting with Republicans, whose sole purpose in Washington is malign Democrats and spread lies.

  1. I just knew that low-life, lying, bi*ch Maggot Traitor Goon would rush in an put her lying 2 cents worth in. Why don’t these corrupt bastards in the Fascist GQP just admit that their only motive for all of this nonsense about Pres. Biden and his son is, that they want revenge, and nothing else. They obviously have nothing on Pres. Biden. They are just doing this because their orange asshole is in serious deep crap for committing crimes in plain sight. We all seen what happened on JAN 6 with the insurrection and riots while TUMP was underground watching what he had created on a large screen TV. I saw that with my own two eyes like millions others in the United States. That was a bad, bad day for me and millions of other viewers. Now he has been indicted by Jack Smith for those crimes just yesterday, August 1, 2023. I don’t think he will get out of this, or at least i hope he doesn’t. I want him to ROT in prison.

  2. Every lying degenerate trump ass kissing moron should rot in prison or better yet a firing squad.
