I don't see how Hunter can possibly expect to win, with all this hanging over his head

Meanwhile, the Trump children defrauded a children's cancer charity so badly that they are now barred from ever serving on the board of another charity in New York, forever.  But yeah, keep choking that Hunter Biden chicken...

Barr enjoys using manipulating the law to support a GOP President that can pack the courts but I expect he's always been uneasy about Trump himself. And I further expect he thinks Trump should be loyal to him and appreciative of his efforts. What I'm saying is, I think Barr felt Trump would never try eating his face.

I know it will never happen, and i know there are good reasons it will never happen. But it would be so incredibly satisfying if Biden were elected president and immediately had the DOJ begin investigations into laws broken by the Trump kids.

Is Barr even still alive?

He's drowning and grasping at straws to stay afloat and it's beautiful (so long as no one tries to execute his demands).

Attacking a man's family like this is quite vile.

Trump uses the DOJ to attack his enemies, because there's no way that tactic can come back to bite his ass off.

look guys, Rudy says this intel on the laptop is totally legit so I'm sure it's good intel and completely worth Barr's office spending time on

Do it fat man. DO IT.

Pull that trigger.

pueblonative: Christ he reeks of desperation.


I want to believe this, but I feel like this is just Trump being Trump.  He doesn't have to be desperate to be an insufferable, raging dickhead.

Cheating was his plan A, B an C.  Part of me wonders if this just Trump being Trump, and he'sjust  banking on a massive Russian voting fix to stay in office.

(I'm Hispanic.  The last four years have made me a very paranoid person).

You had all year to do something with this Biden thing, Trumpy.  I bet all your book reports ended with people shouting at you that bats are not birds.

Better question: What crime has Joe Biden supposedly committed ?

Follow up question: What evidence is there to support this allegation?

It is simply a waste of time to address the MAGA rubes' Gish Gallop of nonsense until they answer this
 
2020-10-20 11:50:33 AM  
The FBI isn't touching this crap, and even Baby Sinclair is giving it the old side-eye.

That should tell everyone all they need to know about this "scandal".
 
2020-10-20 11:50:51 AM  
The president at a rally on Monday lamented that Barr had refrained from investigating Joe Biden but suggested he was doing so because the attorney general is a "very nice man and a very fair man."

Even he can't keep a straight face at you saying that.

Well if the DoJ just charge him with all of the crimes then the courts can decide which ones he actually committed. So that's how we'll find out the answer to your question.

Not going to happen, since they're committed to covering for Trump's actual crimes.
 
2020-10-20 11:52:07 AM  
Just pointing out that this is the President of the United States of America demanding that the Attorney General of the United States of America use Russian intelligence disinformation as a pretext for prosecuting his political rival.

In a normal world, this is impeachable2.

In 2020 America, this is Tuesday.

Trump would like to initiate a witchhunt.

"Hunter is guilty!  Now investigate him so we can decide what exactly it is he's guilty of!"
 
2020-10-20 11:55:12 AM  
Trump: "Hunter was hired on to a board for his connections, which is corrupt but is also the reason like 3/4 of all people on boards of companies are there so it's basically a kind of corruption we're probably not gonna get rid of unless we overhaul, you know, how corporations are chartered and how capitalism works, because it's how all corporate governance works. And we don't have evidence that there was any actual pay-to-play between that company and his dad, but there was probably some wishful thinking. Corruption! Treason!"

Everyone: "Um you hired your whole farking unqualified family when you got in the White House, which is actual, direct corruption, because you're paying them with government dollars, and you've all been illegally using your positions to promote your products and funnel cash directly to your companies for almost four damn years, nonstop."

Trump: "Yeah but board member. Treason." waves hands vaguely

Political "investigations" are what got Donny in office, he's been looking for something on Biden since he announced he was running. Trump even got impeached for trying to start an obviously bullshiat investigation, he knows it's his only shot.

I'm just hear because of the 6 points in the polls thing. I thought it was substantially higher than that? Did I miss a change for the worse this weekend?
 
2020-10-20 11:56:47 AM  
"They came after a group of House Republicans asked Barr to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the allegations about Hunter Biden made in the Post last week. "

This is how they go about creating a reality that justifies their actions. It's a familiar pattern now:

Trump decides what he wants to happen.
Trump makes something up to justify it and makes repeated statements that something is happening.
Right Wing Media picks up the statements and echos them to sell to their base.
Once enough articles are out there the House/Senate GOP start demanding action.
Trump starts demanding action, citing the House/Senate GOP and media reports.
The Right Wing Media starts asking why no action has been taken.
Trump appoints someone / signs an executive order to take the action, to the cheers of his base.

I heard that Hunter does drugs, you guys.  This changes everything.

kindms: What crime has Hunter supposedly committed ?


There are so many crimes. Terrible crimes. Far too many to list. Clearly he is corrupt and untrustworthy, and the fact that he may have met with a Ukrainian official as evidenced by PDFs of emails from a guy in Delaware who swears up and down that the nameless guy who abandoned his laptop at his store was Hunter Biden is proof that his dad is just as evil and should never be president.

Exactly, why not flip that around and go for round two? The house should impeach him yet again in his hopefully lame duck, just to make it so he's the only 2x impeached president.

Well, we've already seen Trump complain in his unbalanced way that a Fox News guy was unfair to him.

How to top that?

Pretend that Bill Barr is not his fixer because he did not manufacture false charges against Biden in a painfully obvious October surprise hoax.

Does he have any idea how crazy this makes him look?

Also meanwhile, the charity that Hunter Biden served as Chairman of the Board for the US branch just won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Tax evasion.

Biden publicly disclosed his tax returns. However, none of those returns show the income of the 50% kickback that Hunter was forced to give him after Joe used his VP connections to score business deals.

/This is an actual argument.

Yes, that is the line Fox has been pushing for days. It's just incredible such a fine news organization can't find a single instance of someone questioning whether these emails are even real!!!

If Hunter is really innocent then he should have no problem proving his innocence in court.

As an added bonus, impeaching him again would delay the Senate rushing in their court puppet.
