Why Presiden Joe Biden Deserves to Be Impeached – The Democrats are scared. In their fear, they are acting haughtier and more outlandish in their defense of the egregious—allegedly criminal—behavior of President Joe Biden and his family.
They are doing this not because they love Joe Biden and his wayward son, Hunter, but because they fear the diminishment of their power, should the truth about the Biden Family’s corruption be revealed. There is nothing that the Republican Party can do to convince any Democrat of the perfidiousness of the Biden Family.
This is a partisan topic now.
Thus, the Republicans in Congress who are heroically probing this matter will have no choice but to press ahead, even in the face of what will be coordinated, vicious counterattacks from the Democrat-controlled media and fellow elected leaders in government—to say nothing of the bureaucracy itself—as those who have the most to lose from Biden being impeached resist the Republicans.
It’s Not Just About Revenge
The Left has already begun publishing a bevy of articles online insinuating that the only reason that the Republicans seek to impeach Biden is because the Democrats impeached former President Donald Trump twice.
But that’s a cheap hit.
Sure, revenge is a dish best served cold—and constantly—in modern American politics. Yet, there’s much more to the Republican Biden impeachment attempt.
Even more so than the two Democrat-led impeachments of former President Trump, there is real criminality involved in the Republican attempt to impeach the forty-sixth president. There is ample evidence making an impeachment inquiry well worth the Republicans’ time.
Indeed, there is more than enough evidence (if we were living in a sane, stable republic) to impeach President Biden.
Because what has been determined by the House GOP investigation thus far is that every main member of the Biden Family—likely including the president himself—benefited from the allegedly illicit globe-trotting activities of Hunter Biden.
The House investigation has uncovered this extensive information, despite the ongoing coverup by elements of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI (both of which nominally report to Hunter Biden’s father, Joe Biden). Imagine the kind of dirt they’d have uncovered by now, given the focus they’ve dedicated to the Hunter Biden investigation, had they had a cooperative Executive Branch.
Let’s compare that to the kind of cooperation that the House Democrats enjoyed from the Executive Branch during the Trump Administration, when the Democrats were impeaching the forty-fifth president.
First, a mostly acceptable phone call between the then-president and his Ukrainian counterpart was leaked to the press and the House Democrats as part of a larger attempt to push Trump out of office by rebellious elements of the Administrative State.
This was done, mind you, after a year-and-a-half-long special counsel investigation into President Trump on what turned out to be completely baseless accusations that Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Russian intelligence to throw that year’s election in Trump’s favor.
When the Democrats weren’t given the ammunition, they needed to impeach Trump at the end of that special counsel investigation, they shifted over to the completely overhyped Trump-Zelenksyy phone call.
Democrats impeached Trump. He survived. Because that impeachment was based on the most ridiculous overreaction in recent politics.
It occurred, though, because the Democrats had placed their faith in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion investigation.
When he failed to recommend impeachment to then-Speaker of House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the Democrats went crazy. They held out hope to impeach Trump—for anything.
And they were given that opportunity in 2019, with Trump’s phone call to Ukraine.
Democrats Did Far More with Far Less Evidence
Despite that, it couldn’t pass through the divided halls of Congress. Plus, the evidence being used against Trump was weak. That is not the case with the evidence Republicans seek to use—and are still collecting—about the extent and nature of the Biden Family’s allegedly corrupt dealings via Hunter Biden’s international business.
The Democrats want nothing more than to convince enough Americans that the calls to impeach President Biden are nothing more than an attempt by the Republicans to exact political vengeance on their rival and to whitewash the purported crimes of former President Donald Trump.
Alas, the supposed crimes of former President Trump and those of Biden are two separate issues. Plus, Trump is currently being swamped by an endless cavalcade of indictments pertaining to those alleged crimes.
Should it be determined that Joe Biden was an essential element of Hunter Biden’s sordid web of corruption—a beneficiary of that corruption—then no quarter can be given to the president.
This has less to do with revenge, as the Democrats falsely accuse.
This is For the Republic
Of course, that plays a role here. What’s more important, though, is the fact that, unlike the Russia collusion lies that were spread about Trump, President Joe Biden may be compromised by various foreign governments—including the People’s Republic of China.
At the very least, an impeachment inquiry is called for. Let’s just put the shoe on the other foot for a moment. You know full well (because we just lived through such an instance) that the Democrats would have had no qualms about initiating an impeachment inquiry against a Republican president with far less evidence.
That, my friends, should be the standard: if it’s good enough for the Democrats to do it then it is equally acceptable for the Republicans to do it…especially if there is such overwhelming evidence that the current Democratic president is corrupt.
