Kirsters Baish’s Opinion| Democratic House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff made an appearance on Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” notifying CNN personality/host Jake Tapper that if reports hold true of President Donald Trump’s phone conversations with the President of the Ukraine, the only “remedy” may be to impeach Trump.
“If the president is essentially withholding military aid at the same time that he is trying to browbeat a foreign leader to do something illicit, to provide dirt on his opponent during a presidential campaign, then that may be the only remedy that is co-equal to the evil that conduct represents,” Schiff stated. Interestingly enough, this is exactly what Joe Biden did in order to protect his son, Hunter Biden, from being probed for his ties to a Ukrainian-based natural gas corporation.
Hunter was raking in tens odf thousand per month just by being on the board of Burisma Holdings, a natural gas company based out of the Ukraine. Biden had essentially no background or knowledge of natural gas as far as we can tell.
Joe Biden took matters into his own hands in order to protect his son, seemingly threatening to withhold more than a billion dollars from the Ukrainian government in loan guarantees if Viktor Shokin was not terminated. (Shokin just so happened to be the prosecutor in Hunter’s case.)
Take a look:

Things started heating up last week when Adam Schiff issued a subpoena for acting DNI Joseph Maguire, claiming that he illegally withheld a Congressional whistleblower complaint, which Schiff claims may be “covering up the president’s misconduct” regarding a telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Schiff told CNN on July 25 that the only way Trump would leave office is to be “voted out,” while encouraging Democrats to make sure voters go to the polls in 2020.
Other Democrats, including presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, and New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, have called for Democratic leadership to pursue impeachment immediately.
Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is at the center of an escalating battle in Washington. The Trump administration has refused to give Congress a whistleblowers complaint about the call, in which Trump reportedly pressured Zelensky to investigate unsubstantiated allegations about Biden.
Trump told reporters on Sunday he had a great call with Zelensky and that he would have no problem with his personal lawyer, Rudolph Giuliani, testifying before Congress.
Im not looking to hurt Biden, but he did a very dishonest thing,” Trump said Sunday morning as he left Washington for a rally in Houston.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday said that Biden should be investigated if evidence shows he improperly intervened to protect his son from an investigation in Ukraine.
“I do think if Vice President Biden behaved inappropriately, if he was protecting his son and intervened with the Ukrainian leadership in a way that was corrupt. I do think we need to get to the bottom of that,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.”
The only problem is that CNN was later forced to admit that their ‘source” apparently never actually heard the call in question …. Just when you thought Schiff’s credibility could not get any worse, he pulls a stunt like this and completely redeems himself lmao!
What ‘Trap” am I referring to? Here is the article detailing Rudy’s assertion this was all a trap to bring Ukraine to the forefront of the media.
