Pffft! The Air Goes Out of Biden Impeachment Probe

I'm sure we're all dismayed that so many sitting members of Congress have used their public perches to grow rich on stock investments. That's no coincidence. It's corruption. Of course, there's always legislation proposed to prevent Congressman and Senators from investing, but nothing ever seems to pass. The same is true of highly placed elected officials. Whether it's President Joe Biden or President Donald Trump, the sons and daughter of both have become quite wealthy by trading in their father's name. Ivanka Trump's husband Jared Kushner received $2 billion from the Saudis for his investment firm. And House Republicans have been beating a drum for years about corrupt Hunter Biden, who was paid handsomely to sit on the board of a Ukrainian company about which he knows nothing. This is all perfectly legal, but it should be banned. But that's not what House Republicans want to stop. They instead were set on impeaching President Biden based on a lead informant's claim that both Biden and his son received millions in bribes. Turns out that this "highly credible" informant had extensive and recent contacts with the Kremlin. 

House Republicans have been played by Vladimir Putin. They built their entire case around a guy hawking Russian disinformation just as deftly as Trump sells his gaudy sneakers. Our GOP is even helping Putin mount an offensive by blocking aid to Ukraine.

BS…The trumps have made millions illegally. There is absolutely nothing to compare the trump family with the Biden family. Who wants their children to mimic trump? WHO?
