GOP Scandal Mongers Float a Wild New Impeachment Charge Against Biden for Talking to his Son

The Republican Party is clearly suffering from severe and debilitating delusions about President Biden. They are freakishly fixated on their bizarre and wholly unwarranted determination to implicate him for some (any) crime and to remove him office for whatever imaginary offense they manufacture.

Joe Biden, GOP, Elephant

Republicans have held their razor-thin (and shrinking) majority in the House of Representatives for nearly a year now. And in that time they have fanatically focused on their depraved Biden obsession to the exclusion of everything else, including avoiding a debt ceiling default, funding the government, supporting allies in Israel and Ukraine, reforming immigration policy, and much more. Their BCD (Biden Compulsive Disorder) has resulted in the House breaking the modern records for inactivity and ineptitude.

SEE THIS: DO-NOTHING CONGRESS? The Republican House of Representatives is the Most Productive Ever (LOL)

The latest fabrication from the GOP Bullsh*t Factory is a real doozy. A couple of weeks ago Hunter Biden spoke on the steps of the Capitol to inform Republicans that he was ready to testify before their committee in public hearings. But the GOP committee chairs, Jim Jordan and James Comer, refused, insisting that he be deposed behind closed doors.

The GOP’s position is predictable considering how badly they have been humiliated in their previous public hearings. Their own witnesses testified that President Biden had done nothing wrong. They only want to conduct future hearings in private so that they can lie about it afterward. And now that Hunter has called their bluff, they are inventing new allegations that make no sense at all. As reported by The Hill…

“House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) and House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) are suggesting that President Biden may have ‘engaged in a conspiracy to obstruct a proceeding of Congress’ if he knew that his son Hunter Biden planned to defy a congressional subpoena […] and said it ‘could constitute an impeachable offense.'”

WTF? This charge boils down to the GOP asserting that Biden can be impeached for the high crime of talking to his son. There is absolutely no constitutional prohibition of presidents discussing things that their children might tell reporters about pending litigation. It would be different if Biden were interfering with the Justice Department, but there is no hint of evidence of anything remotely approaching that.

Jordan and Comer are also saying that a refusal to comply with a congressional subpoena constitutes obstruction of Congress. That’s just plain preposterous. Congress is not impeded from functioning simply because a single witness disputes the validity of a subpoena and declines to testify. But if it were true, then Jim Jordan is the one who should be prosecuted. He has been refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena for over a year now. And you can add Trump flunkies Steve Bannon, Peter Navarro, and Dan Scavino, to the list of those subpoena evaders who are contemptuous of Congress.

To make matters worse, Comer scampered off to a right-wing cable outlet to complain about his being ignored by Hunter Biden. He whined to Newsmax that…

“I’ve told my colleagues in the Republican conference, if Hunter Biden doesn’t comply with our subpoena then we might as well throw the subpoena power away cause nobody’s gonna comply with a congressional subpoena. The fact that the Democrats used their subpoenas for political reasons, for fishing expeditions, and here we have a credible investigation where we’ve been transparent with the American people, we have mountains of evidence.”

Comer’s complaint about the value of congressional subpoenas is a little late considering all of the Republicans who have already devalued it. The difference is that Democrats didn’t cry like babies when Republicans didn’t show. Democrats presented their evidence and moved on. Republicans, however, can’t do that because they don’t actually have any evidence. Which is the reason they always end up resorting to whining so pathetically instead. What else can they do?

Jim Jordan Babbles About Trump When Asked on Fox News for Evidence to Impeach President Biden

The ongoing circus that the clowns (aka Republicans) in the House of Representatives are trying to pass off as an impeachment inquiry of President Biden continues to prove that they have nothing to support their transparently partisan and vengeance-driven farce. And immune as they are to humiliation, they just keep digging themselves into ever deeper trenches.

Jim Jordan, Biden's Emails

Ever since the GOP assumed their razor-thin (and shrinking) majority in the House, they have devoted themselves to a purely political pursuit aimed at disparaging Biden and other Democrats. It has been their singular obsession, dispensing with any pretense of serving the American people. And despite their intense focus on fictitious faultfinding, they remain breathtakingly bad at it. But that doesn’t deter them from bragging about it…

SEE THIS: GOP Speaker Admits the Purpose of the Biden Impeachment Inquiry is to Hurt Biden Politically

Wednesday morning Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, visited with his pals at the GOP’s Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News. However, he was startled by a un-Fox like question that actually sought to extract some useful information. Anchor John Roberts asked…

“We don’t know if it exists even – and I think a lot of people want to know about this – is where is the evidence of wrongdoing Joe Biden’s part.”

That’s a good question that has been asked repeatedly by bona fide journalists on other news networks. And Republicans have never been able to come up with a coherent answer. This occasion was no different. Jordan awkwardly stumbled around with an “everything but the kitchen sink” approach to bull manure spreading. He didn’t even bother address the question of Biden’s alleged wrongdoing. His answer was all about Trump…

“The 14th Amendment doesn’t talk about the office of the President in that section of the 14th Amendment. And, frankly, the president was put on trial and found not guilty by the United States Senate when the Democrats did their second crazy impeachment of him before. But the scariest thing of all in my judgment is the escalation with what the left will do to try to keep him out of The White House. I mean, first it was they spied on his campaign. then it was the Mueller investigation. Then it was the impeachment. Then it was raiding his home. Then it was indicting him in four different locations.”

Having completely avoided any discussion of evidence against Biden, Jordan just rattled off everything that Trump has been whining about for the past three years. It’s just Jordan’s way of shoveling too much crapola for anyone to rebut in a time-constrained television segment. And it was hardly a plot carried out by the left. Let’s take a look at his malarkey…

“The 14th Amendment doesn’t talk about the office of the President.”
No, but it does talk about being “a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State…”

“The president was put on trial and found not guilty by the United States Senate.”
No he wasn’t. And it wasn’t a trial. A majority of Senators (57), including seven Republicans, voted to convict and remove Trump from office in the second impeachment. But the Senate requires a two-thirds majority. It was not, however, a decree of not guilty.

“They spied on his campaign.”
No they didn’t. The FBI did investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election, and Trump and his associates just happened to be closely connected to much of it.

“Then it was the Mueller investigation.”
Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was appointed by Donald Trump. The Justice Department was run by Republican Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“Then it was the impeachment.”
The person solely responsible for Trump’s impeachments was Trump. He’s the one who tried to extort the president of Ukraine to get him to find dirt on Biden. And he tried to stage a violent coup to retain power after he lost the 2020 election.

“Then it was raiding his home.”
Trump’s home was not raided. He was served a lawful subpoena that he failed to comply with and lied to the FBI. That resulted in a search of his Mar-a-Lago home/hotel that found hundreds of classified documents.

“Then it was indicting him in four different locations.”
Once again, there was no plot by the left. It was Trump’s unlawful conduct and failure to cooperate that was the reason for his four indictments on 91 felony counts.

So Jordan’s response simply reminded everyone about all of Trump’s criminal activities, rather than providing the evidence against Biden that he was asked about. That’s not an especially smart way to advance his smear campaign. But in his defense, he was faced with a crippling dilemma wherein there isn’t any evidence against Biden, but mountains of it against Trump. So what else could he talk about?

HUH? GOP Says the Sham Biden Impeachment is Legit Because GOP Committee Chairs Are on TV a Lot

The Republican members of the House of Representatives are fiercely dedicated to their singular mission of maligning President Biden and every other Democrat that they encounter. They have utterly abandoned any pretense of serving their constituents or carrying out the duties to advance the welfare of the American people or the nation.

Joe Biden, GOP, Elephant

In pursuit of their bitterly partisan goals, the GOP is preparing to vote on whether to stage a thoroughly ludicrous Biden impeachment inquiry, despite not having the slightest hint of evidence of any wrongdoing. It is such a blatant farce that even Fox News has reported on the GOP’s shameless inability to produce any facts to support their smear campaign…

SEE THIS: WHOA! Peter Doocy of Fox News Reports that the GOP Failed to Find Any Evidence to Impeach Biden

On Tuesday morning the Republicans held a hearing to debate the Impeachment inquiry proposal. It was predictably devoid of any substance that would justify either an inquiry or an impeachment. However, it was chock full of asinine arguments by Republicans trying desperately to defend their dimwitted determination to destroy Biden. And leading the pack was GOP Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, who sought to rationalize the alleged “transparency” of a process that Republicans have been insisting be conducted behind closed doors. He GOP-splained that…

“They’ve continued to update. Not just Chairman Comer, but Chairman Jordan, Chairman Smith. They’ve been on TV…You can’t turn on a news program without seeing one of those three updating the American people on this. So to say that we’ve come up lacking in transparency is laughable.”

That’s right! It was all above board because recidivist liars like James Comer, Jim Jordan, and Jason Smith, are frequent guests on Fox News and Steve Bannon’s War Room. They actually believe that that sort of perpetual media presence is how congressional business is supposed to be conducted. They have adopted the Trump perspective of Reality TV being de facto reality.

In fact, what Reschenthaler is describing is precisely why the Republican plans are preposterous and intolerable. They are hoping to hold the hearings in private, and then only reveal on right-wing television programs what they claim took place. They will, of course, deliver grossly biased distortions of reality in their TV appearances. And they will mischaracterize whatever “evidence” they choose to present. This is the same process they previously proposed for deposing Hunter Biden…

SEE ALSO: GOP and Fox News Oppose Public Testimony By Hunter Biden Because Then They Can’t Lie About It

This isn’t conjecture. Republicans have already demonstrated that they will brazenly lie about testimony given in private. That tendency was noted by Democratic Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon, who responded to Reschenthaler’s nonsense saying that…

“Mr. Reschenthaler is absolutely right. The three chairs of the committees conducting this sham impeachment inquiry have been all over the news. On Fox, on Newsmax, every night, mischaracterizing what they’ve found. Mischaracterizing what witnesses have said.

“And that’s why it’s important that, if this is to go forward, the American people will be able to judge for themselves. There’s a pattern and practice at this point of the Republican majority hiding what’s going on, only cherry-picking the evidence that they want to move forward. Disregarding when it’s contradicted, even by their own witnesses.”

If Republicans go forward with their phony impeachment inquiry it will likely backfire on them, just as all of their prior attempted smears have done. They think that the American people are stupid. But who can blame them when the only people they have any personal contact with are the ones who watch Fox News? The rest of the nation will be heard loud and clear next November when Republicans are driven from office.

Newsmax Tells Slack-Jawed GOP Chair that He and His Biden Probe ‘Looked Like a Joke’ on CNN

The Republican Party in the House of Representatives is preparing to vote on whether to initiate a formal impeachment inquiry for President Biden, despite not having been able to produce a single shred of evidence of any wrongdoing after years of frantic digging. It’s part of an ongoing smear campaign that they have undertaken because they haven’t got anything resembling a positive legislative agenda.

Joe Biden, Newsmax

It should be noted that the GOP already has three committees engaged in informal impeachment inquiries. However, they have collectively produced nothing but humiliation for Republicans as their attempts to malign Biden inevitably backfired due to their brazen dishonesty. Their own witnesses ended up testifying that Biden had done nothing remotely untoward that would justify impeachment. In fact, their ineptitude has been so flagrant that even Fox News noticed…

SEE THIS: WHOA! Peter Doocy of Fox News Reports that the GOP Failed to Find Any Evidence to Impeach Biden

One of the committees currently harassing Biden is the Oversight Committee, chaired by GOP fabulist James Comer. In a recent interview on CNN Comer was made a laughingstock by Jake Tapper for his absurd assertions that Hunter Biden was indicted in order to protect him and cover up something or other…

Following that fiasco, Comer scampered off to Newsmax where he expected to get a much more friendly reception. And in point of fact, he did. However, Comer is such a nimrod that he botched the softballs lobbed at him. The Newsmax host, Rob Finnerty, brought up Tapper’s interview and gave Comer an opportunity to clean it up…

Finnerty: “He’s making your investigation sound like a joke, and he’s trying to make you look like a joke. And then half of America sees that and they think your investigation is a joke. How do you work around that?
Comer: Well, that’s the first time I went on CNN in three months. We thought we would give it a try. You know, Jake Tapper is an intelligent guy, but he’s playing to a low IQ audience. CNN is hemorrhaging viewers every day. And Jake’s doing what he’s told by his bosses at CNN, who are doing what they’re told by their bosses at the Democrat National Committee. CNN is a wholly owned unprofitable subsidiary of the Democrat National Committee.

So Comer’s first response is to note that he has been too afraid of being interviewed on CNN for the past three months. Then he praises Tapper, but insults the IQ of his audience. Never mind that the IQ of the Newsmax audience has be be considerably lower considering they have fully adopted the crackpot conspiracy theories of QAnon and still support Donald Trump, the twice-impeached, pathological liar, who is facing 91 felony charges, and has been adjudicated as a financial fraudster and rapist.

Furthermore, while CNN’s audience has declined, so has almost every other cable news network in the era of cord-cutting and streaming. And Newsmax trails Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN, by significant margins. That may have something to do with the fact that it is a “wholly owned unprofitable subsidiary” of the Trump Cult, aka the Republican National Committee.

Perhaps the most striking thing about Comer’s response to being made to look like a joke, is that in his entire reply he never disagreed with it. He admitted his fear of CNN, his low opinion of their audience, and his ignorance of the cable news business. But he didn’t bother to dispute the contention that he and his probe of Biden looked like a joke. Because… how could he? What with all the laughter.

GOP Speaker Johnson Visits Fox News to Shamelessly Lie About Proposed Biden Impeachment Inquiry

Republicans in the House of Representatives are resolute in their commitment to preserve their record of accomplishing absolutely nothing during their year long tenure as the majority party. They are determined to obstruct any progress on behalf of the American people. They have even failed to pass the most basic and essential legislation, such as funding the government, and support for Ukraine and Israel.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

Instead, the GOP has produced a cavalcade of chaos while being singularly devoted to rank partisanship aimed solely at assaulting their political foes. That obsession has manifested itself innumerable hearings focused on impeaching President Biden on the basis of wholly fabricated falsehoods about him and his family. And the Republican “leadership” has been surprisingly candid about their nefarious intent…

SEE THIS: GOP Speaker Admits the Purpose of the Biden Impeachment Inquiry is to Hurt Biden Politically

Just last month GOP House speaker, Mike Johnson, was reluctant to initiate a formal impeachment inquiry because “Biden’s polling numbers have been so weak, there is less of a political imperative to impeach him.” But his position has shifted in the few weeks that followed. Presumably because the Ultra-MAGA wing of his party has threatened to give him the boot, as they did to former speaker Kevin McCarthy, if he doesn’t fall in line. Consequently, Johnson rushed over to a diner in Shreveport, Louisiana, where Raymond Arroyo of Fox News was waiting to hear his confession:

Arroyo: This inquiry is underway. They’re voting this week to have an inquiry. Some of the folks in this diner say there shouldn’t be an inquiry of Joe Biden. There should be an impeachment proceeding. You would say what?
Johnson: Well, I would say we’re the rule of law team and we have to be very deliberate and careful about that. I’ve said several times, and it’s true, that next to the declaration of war, I think that impeachment is the heaviest power that Congress has. The House specifically under the Constitution. So we have to be very methodical and careful and follow the facts where they lead. The impeachment inquiry is the next necessary step because the White House is now stonewalling our investigation.

Arroyo prefaced his leading question with the observation that the prescreened audience of Trump cultists are already hankering for an impeachment without the annoying burden of having to gather evidence or to have any proof wrongdoing. And Johnson’s reply was typically riddled with cheesy talking points about the “rule of law” and adherence to the Constitution, neither of which he or the GOP have any respect for.

While Johnson pretends to be concerned about being “deliberate and careful,” the truth is that he knows very well that there isn’t the slightest justification for an impeachment probe. He has said so himself. As noted above, his mission is purely political. If Johnson really cared about the rule of law, as he claims, he would be impaneling a committee to investigate Donald Trump’s provably unlawful conduct, along with that of his family who have received billions from foreign oligarchs. But don’t hold your breath waiting for that to transpire.

It’s notable that outside of the Trump-fluffing opinion mongers at Fox News – who dominate the network – there have been some unexpected acts of actual journalism. For instance, last week Fox’s White House correspondent, Peter Doocy, reported that…

“The House Oversight Committee has been at this for years, and they have so far not been able to provide any concrete evidence that Joe Biden personally profited from his son Hunter’s overseas business. But they are gonna try again with this impeachment inquiry that’s set to start next week.”

SEE THIS: WHOA! Peter Doocy of Fox News Reports that the GOP Failed to Find Any Evidence to Impeach Biden

So Johnson and his Propaganda Ministry at Fox News are contradicting the reporting of the network’s own alleged journalists. That’s because they couldn’t care less about facts, truth, or reality. They are fixated on phony scandals and disinformation that they can exploit to help Republicans and defame Democrats. And they aren’t shy about lying in order to achieve their evil ends.

WHOA! Peter Doocy of Fox News Reports that the GOP Failed to Find Any Evidence to Impeach Biden

It has been nearly a year since the Republican Party assumed their razor-thin (and shrinking) majority in the House of Representatives. In all of that time they have vigorously avoided and/or opposed any legislation that would actually have a positive effect on the lives of the American people.

Fox News, Peter Doocy

Instead, the GOP has been laser-focused on partisan political stunts and brazenly dishonest attacks on President Biden and other Democrats. They have held dozens of hearings intended to expose alleged Biden improprieties, but in every case their own witnesses testified that Biden was beyond reproach. It got so humiliating for Republicans that James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, now refuses to hold any more public hearings.

SEE THIS: GOP and Fox News Oppose Public Testimony By Hunter Biden Because Then They Can’t Lie About It

Nevertheless, the GOP is continuing their crusade against Biden and is pursuing a formal impeachment inquiry, despite not having a shred of evidence of any wrongdoing. And it isn’t just Democrats and liberals saying that. On Friday morning Peter Doocy, the notoriously biased Fox News White House correspondent, appeared on the network to report on the GOP’s plan to vote on an impeachment inquiry next week. However, Doocy detoured to some unexpected honesty from him regarding the matter…

“The House Oversight Committee has been at this for years, and they have so far not been able to provide any concrete evidence that Joe Biden personally profited from his son Hunter’s overseas business. But they are gonna try again with this impeachment inquiry that’s set to start next week.”

That’s right. Doocy is affirmatively refuting the Republicans who have been making innumerable appearances on Fox News insisting that they have irrefutable evidence of Biden’s guilt. Never mind that each time they present it, it is quickly and easily debunked as nonsense and lies. And the chief liar for the GOP is their new Speaker, Mike Johnson…

It’s remarkable that Fox News allows Republicans on the air to openly lie about matters that are conclusively contradicted by their own reporters. And it’s interesting to note that in this case it isn’t even the first time. Peter Doocy’s father, Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy, has also disputed the GOP’s arguments against Biden…

SEE MORE: UH-OH: Even Fox News Rejects the GOP’s ‘Evidence’ to Impeach Biden as ‘Completely Unverified’

This, however, is standard operating procedure for Fox News. They have never cared much for facts. And they aren’t shy about shaming their own “journalists” in order to advance their MAGA propaganda agenda. Consequently, there are many examples of Fox’s right-wing hosts and guests disseminating falsehoods that contradict news reporting that aired sometimes minutes before. Because on Fox News, spreading partisan fiction always trumps the truth.

Speaker Mike Johnson Gives Fox News His Utterly Phony ‘Straightforward Facts’ to Impeach Biden

Ever since the Republican Party barely assumed the majority in the House of Representatives earlier this year, they have devotedly focused on meritless attacks aimed at President Joe Biden and other Democrats. Their determination to malign their political foes has consumed them entirely, to the exclusion of anything remotely resembling the actual interests of the American people.

Fox News, Fake News

Now that the GOP’s already slim majority has shrunk by one with the expulsion of pathological liar George Santos, the party is proving that they’ve learned nothing from their eleven months of rabid bias and pitiful ineptitude. They are resuming their obsession with impeaching Biden despite having zero evidence of any wrongdoing.

SEE ALSO: GOP Speaker Admits the Purpose of the Biden Impeachment Inquiry is to Hurt Biden Politically

On Saturday morning GOP House Speaker Mike Johnson ventured to the friendly territory of Fox News to lay out his case for impeaching Biden. He described his reasons as clear and consisting of “straightforward facts” to his pals at Fox and Friends. But as usual for the Republican scandal mongers, there were no facts presented, only blatant lies. What follows is an annotated transcription of Johnson’s remarks on Fox (See video below).

“The facts are so clear for everyone to see. Just a couple of numbers to remember, just real quick off the top. Fifteen million. We know that the Biden family received at least $15,000,000 from foreign nationals and foreign companies, that includes from Ukraine, Russia, China, just between 2014 and 2019.”

Johnson is asserting only that the Biden family received funds from doing business with foreign companies, which is entirely legal. In fact, others who have received such funds, in much larger amounts, include Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, Don Trump Jr, and Eric Trump. And Johnson has no evidence that President Biden ever received a penny. And for much of that time Biden was not even in office. Then Johnson continued…

“Sixteen times, at least on the record, Joe Biden has lied about his involvement in the family’s business dealings, Hunter Biden’s business dealings. We know that twenty-two times, at least twenty-two times the President met with or talked with Hunter’s foreign business associates.”

Johnson has provided exactly zero evidence of Biden ever lying about his involvement in Hunter Biden’s business dealings. Not on Fox News, nor during any of the hearings held by his confederates in the House. In fact, the GOP’s own witnesses at those hearings testified that the President never spoke with Hunter’s business associates about anything more consequential than the weather, and nothing at all related to business. Then Johnson went on…

“And we have checks written to Joe Biden that the Oversight Committee has found, the banking records, $40,000 from China, $200.000 from a now bankrupt healthcare company that his brother James Biden apparently swindled. The evidence is so clear that you cannot look away. And the Constitution requires the House to follow the truth wherever it leads.”

This is the most blatant lie of all. Johnson has no checks to Biden from China or any bankrupt healthcare companies. And he knows it. What he has are checks from Biden’s brother James for repayments of personal loans between brothers. And the evidence of the loans was affirmed in the bank records that Johnson admits to having. What’s more, the allegation that James Biden “swindled” anyone is pure slander.

SEE THIS: Desperate Republicans Seek to Impeach President Biden Because – His Brother Repays Loans?

What Johnson claims is clear evidence of crimes by the Biden family, is actually evidence of Johnson’s shameless dishonesty. Which is consistent with the inbred deceit of the Republican Party that he leads. Not to mention Fox News, whose flunkies sat there wide-eyed as he lied to them and their audience of Trump Cultists.

So it’s no surprise that the GOP recently announced that they would not be holding any more public hearings into the Biden impeachment. Because they must have finally gotten tired of humiliating themselves.

Speaker Mike Johnson is Already Pushing the Phony Biden Impeachment, Despite Having No Evidence

The brand, spanking new Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, is making a huge splash in his inaugural days on the job. He began by calling for a five day recess, presumably because the three week long humiliating and chaotic fiasco that preceded his elevation to Speaker wasn’t enough wasted time.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

Johnson’s fanatical right-wing views are getting some attention now that the extended melodrama of the Speaker’s election is past. He is an ardent election denier and an architect of the fraud that Donald Trump and others have been indicted for. He is an advocate of banning abortion without exemptions. He’s opposed to LGBTQ rights and gay marriage. He wants to cut or curtail Social Security and Medicare. His platform would actually make a darn good campaign ad for Democrats. And Fox News has already produced it for them.

SEE THIS: Fox News Turns Mike Johnson’s Conspiracy Theories Into a Great Campaign Ad – For Democrats

When Speaker Johnson finally gavels Congress back into session next week, it is certain that the issues on his agenda will reflect his radical political views rather than the best interests of the American people. For example, among the top topics that Johnson cited in his recent and squishy interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News was the purely partisan smear campaign against President Biden that Republicans call an “impeachment inquiry.” Despite pretending that he intends “to follow the truth where it leads and engage in due process,” Johnson told Hannity that…

“It’s a real problem. That’s the reason that we shifted into the impeachment inquiry stage on the President himself. Because if, in fact, all the evidence leads to where we believe it will, that’s very likely impeachable offenses. You know that’s listed as a cause for impeachment in the Constitution. You know, bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors. Bribery is listed there, and it looks and smells a lot like that.”

So Johnson admits that he has already concluded that the “evidence” will lead to “impeachable offenses.” Never mind that there is literally zero evidence of any wrongdoing associated with President Biden. Johnson also admits that his GOP colleagues “are getting anxious and they’re getting restless and they just want somebody to be impeached.” And it is that anxiety and restlessness that is driving the irrational and biased probes of Biden, not any legal justification or production of proof.

If Johnson really cared about the rule of law, as he claims, he would be impaneling a committee to investigate Donald Trump’s provably unlawful conduct, along with that of his family who have received billions from foreign oligarchs. Instead, Johnson and his lackeys are struggling to fabricate scandals where none exist.

However, their efforts just keep backfiring on them. Republican Oversight Committee chair, James Comer, has effectively conceded that his hearings have flopped and, rather than incriminating Biden, they have actually exonerated him.

SEE ALSOS: Fox News and GOP Impeachment Chair Seek ‘Damning Evidence’ Against Biden, But Can’t Find Any

Consequently, Comer is now suggesting that he will stop holding his phony public hearings, but will conduct depositions in private. As reported in the Washington Post

“Comer and his colleagues, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) have repeatedly presented new allegations as proof of Biden’s wrongdoing — only to have them slowly be revealed as incomplete, misleading or unimportant.” […]

“’I don’t know that I want to hold any more hearings, to be honest with you,’ Comer said while speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill last week. He complained that it was hard to keep members present for hours on end, given that so many had other commitments. Instead, he said, he preferred depositions, which ‘you can do more with.'”

Comer is correct in saying that by retreating to the back rooms of Congress he “can do more.” He can do more cherry-picking of out-of-context testimony. He can do more misleading interpretations of what witnesses say. And he can do more outright lying to defame Biden and poison the public discourse.

What he can’t do more of is present any actual evidence of impeachable offenses. But that’s only because there isn’t any. Unfortunately, that won’t stop Comer, or Johnson, or the rest of the dishonest Republican machine from slandering Biden and other Democrats. It’s really all they know how to do.

Desperate Republicans Seek to Impeach President Biden Because – His Brother Repays Loans?

For the first time in history, the House of Representatives has been dormant for 17 days because Republicans are utterly incapable of competently performing their congressional duties. They have repeatedly failed to replace the Speaker that they themselves had ousted. Consequently, the critical business of the nation is going unattended due entirely to childish GOP infighting.

Fox News, James Comer, Joe Biden, Loan

That unattended business includes drafting legislation to fund the government and keep it from shutting down. It also includes supporting our allies in Israel and Ukraine as they are suffering at the hands of terrorists and imperialistic aggressors. Republicans, however, may regard a crippled government as an improvement. And by their own assessment of their leadership skills, they may be right.

SEE THIS: GOP Wants a Government Shutdown Because ‘Most of What We Do is Bad, Hurts the American People’

Among the duties that the House is neglecting during their Speaker debacle are the phony hearings ostensibly to investigate – and ultimately impeach – President Biden. While those hearings are halted like all other House business, the mouths of its MAGA members continue to wag. For instance, James Comer, chairman of the Oversight Committee, has surfaced on Fox News with “shocking” new information that he thinks will sink the Biden presidency. It concerns a check for $200,000 from James Biden to his brother Joe.

“The money came from Jim Biden where he influence peddled to a company in the United States that he went and said that he can help through his brother’s contacts get capital from the Middle East.”

Oh my! This would be catastrophic for President Biden were it not for the fact that Comer left out all of the facts that entirely undermine this alleged scandalette. In reality, Joe Biden had previously loaned James this money, and James was just paying it back. It actually says “loan repayment” on the memo line of the check. There is no evidence whatsoever of any link between the President and the company that had made a loan James. Nor is there any proof that the company benefited in any way resulting from the transaction.

What’s more, Joe Biden was a private citizen at the time. He held no office of influence, nor was he a candidate. But that didn’t stop the scandal mongers of the GOP from peddling flagrant lies about Biden and this nonexistent impropriety. They began with Comer himself, which led to a parade of perfidy…

  • Oversight Committee: “We have found a $200,000 DIRECT payment to Joe Biden. @RepJamesComer lays out the money trail.”
  • Steve Scalise: “BREAKING ? @GOPoversight has uncovered a $200,000 DIRECT payment to Joe Biden. The money trail of the Biden Family corruption scheme leads directly to Joe himself. There’s no denying it now.”
  • Lauren Boebert: “The media has spent the past two years claiming there was no actual evidence of Joe Biden’s financial wrongdoings. Yesterday, the Oversight Committee unveiled a $200,000 check James Biden wrote to his brother on the same day he received a loan from a failing company.”
  • Rudy Giuliani: “The House Oversight Committee JUST released new details on how Joe Biden received direct payments from family members.”
  • Sean Hannity (Fox News): “Joe Biden is a criminal and now we have the proof.”
  • Greg Kelly (Newsmax): “Smoking. Gun.”

Needless to say, there was no “direct” payment, no “money trail,” no “corruption scheme,” no “proof,” and no “smoking gun.” These were all deliberate distortions of reality intended to disseminate blatant disinformation and to defame President Biden.

What proof there was – the actual loan and repayment info – only served to exonerate Biden. But with the House closed for business, these dishonest propagandists felt compelled to do what they do best: lie their asses off to the eager right-wing media. And so it goes.

OH NO! Fox News Frets About Government Shutdown Because it Might Stall the Biden Impeachment

There is less than one week to go before the Republican Congress throws the U.S. government into yet another costly shutdown. In that time the GOP will likely continue debating against itself and making threats aimed at Democrats that will ultimately result in harm to the American people.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

GOP House Squeaker, Kevin McCarthy, has totally lost control of his caucus, Twice he failed to advance a rule allowing the pending appropriations bills to be debated. All of the opposition is coming from within his own party, who seem to believe that a shutdown would actually be beneficial. Sure it is. So long as you don’t ask the millions of Americans who rely on services related to everything from building permits, to interstate and international travel, to financial aid, to veterans benefits, to tax information and filing, and so much more.

SEE THIS: GOP Wants a Government Shutdown Because ‘Most of What We Do is Bad, Hurts the American People’

On Sunday morning GOP Sen. Mike Lee was interviewed on Fox News by their Senior Trump-Fluffer, Maria Bartiromo. During their chat Bartiromo and Lee expressed their deep concern as to the potential disruptions that a shutdown would cause. And in this segment they revealed what they regard as the most pertinent matter facing the nation…

Bartiromo: If we see a government shutdown does the investigation of President Biden stop? We’ve learned so much about what he and his family have been doing in the last decade.
Lee: And those allegations are very troubling. They need to be investigated. And I applaud Speaker McCarthy for launching this inquiry. I am aware of no reason, Maria, why that inquiry could not continue if the government were to shut down temporarily. There is nothing suggesting to me that Congress can’t do its work if that happens. In any event, we shouldn’t use that as an excuse unilaterally to disarm and to accede to whatever the Democrats want.

So with vital government services at risk of being curtailed, the top priority for Bartiromo and Lee is a bogus impeachment inquiry into baseless allegations against President Biden. And Bartiromo’s claim that “We’ve learned so much” about alleged Biden wrongdoing is patently false. To the contrary, every attempt to manufacture some pseudo-scandal actually resulted in proof that Biden and his administration have been extraordinarily honest and ethical.

As for Lee’s reassurance to Bartiromo that the shutdown wouldn’t impede the ill-considered inquiry, he is either placating her wingnut anxieties, or he is woefully ignorant of congressional business. While Congress can continue to operate during a shutdown, each member would make decisions as to which staffers would be considered “essential” and keep working. The others would be furloughed. And while the member would continue to be paid, none of the remaining staff would be until the shutdown was over.

What’s more, offices in other branches of government would be closed or reduced in staff during a shutdown. So any requests made by the GOP’s investigating committees would not be able to be answered. Which would, in effect, shut down their work, other than to whine about how the administration is allegedly stonewalling them.

It’s notable that Lee’s position contradicts that of McCarthy, whose post as House leader is more directly responsible for these considerations. And on this matter McCarthy made it clear that a shutdown would indeed impact any pending House investigations. As reported by Reuters

“The looming U.S. government shutdown that some hardline Republicans, including Donald Trump, are cheering for could slow one of their other priorities: the recently launched impeachment inquiry of Democratic President Joe Biden. […] ‘If we shut down, all of government shuts it down, investigation and everything else,’ McCarthy said in an interview with Fox News.

As usual, the GOP is a cesspool of chaos and lies. And it shouldn’t surprise anyone that what worries Republicans should a shutdown occur does not seem to include the loss of critical services that Americans rely on, including housing and food programs for low-income families and seniors, learning and education assistance for students, job training and placement for veterans and the un- and under-employed.

Their only concern is that a shutdown could stall their brazenly partisan political attacks on Biden and his family. Which is further evidence – as if it were necessary – that Republicans couldn’t possibly care less about the American people. They only care about advancing their lust for profit and power. And to hell with the needs of their constituents. It’s an old story that just gets more repulsive with each retelling.
