As Democrats ready a doomed impeachment inquiry on the basis of Trump’s supposed Ukraine scandal that’s set to accomplish nothing except ensure the concerns of the American people are ignored, they’re conveniently ignoring a tape in which Joe Biden admits using the office of the Vice Presidency to intimidate the Ukrainian government.
Biden admitted he pressured Ukraine’s then-President Petro Poroshenko to fire the prosecutor investigating his son Hunter Biden for payments he received from an oligarch-owned gas company, Burisma Holdings. Biden claimed that the prosecutor investigating his son, Viktor Shokin, was corrupt, and informed Poroshenko that Ukraine would be denied a billion dollars of foreign aid if Shokin wasn’t fired.
Sure enough, Shokin was fired shortly thereafter. It didn’t occur to Biden that he held a massive conflict of interest in orchestrating the firing of a prosecutor who was investigating his own son for receiving millions of dollars from a suspicious oil company.
In fact, Biden bragged about his role in firing Shokin while speaking at an event for the globalist Council on Foreign Relations in 2018. Watch here:
Biden’s use of his office for incredibly inappropriate shakedowns of the Ukrainian government seems to have been par for the course for the current presidential candidate and career politician. But the matter resurfaced when President Donald Trump asked the new President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, to resume the investigation into Hunter Biden. Reports indicate that the Ukrainian government is set to do so, probing the approximately $3,000,000 paid to Biden by Burisma as potential under-the-table bribery.
Meanwhile, as Democrats ready a frantic impeachment push against Trump for his conversation with the Ukrainian leader, it doesn’t occur to them that the former Vice President actually could have been covering for corrupt practices in shutting down an investigation into his own son.
Biden has gone dark on the matter, refusing to discuss any of the particulars regarding his or his son’s connections to Ukraine.
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
