Baish’s Point Of View| RINO Senator Susan Collins of Maine slammed President Donald Trump for “asking China to investigate” former United States Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
Hunter Biden attempted to form a Chinese private equity fund back in 2013. He later paid a visit to China along with his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, where Hunter met with bankers. Hunter was issued the funds business license just 10 days later by Shanghai authorities.
Donald Trump has every right to ask the Ukraine and China to investigate the Bidens in order to reveal the corrupt ways of the political family. Susan Collins decided to bash Trump rather than condemning Joe Biden for his actions.
“Should the articles of impeachment come to the Senate — and right now I’m going to guess that they will — I will be acting as a juror as I did in the Clinton impeachment trial,” Collins told Bangor Daily News.

The Maine senator was unequivocal in her statements, which came after a firefighters memorial service in Augusta on Saturday morning, joining Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and Ben Sasse, R-Nevada, in breaking rank with GOP support for the president.
“I thought the president made a big mistake by asking China to get involved in investigating a political opponent,” Collins said. “It’s completely inappropriate.”
The president’s comments came days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, announced a formal impeachment probe into his attempt to solicit foreign help in an election, which is illegal and considered by many lawmakers to be a foundational threat to democracy.
Sen. Collins reiterated that she would not offer comment on the evidence, saying that not all of it is in yet, and that she hopes the impeachment process “will be done with the seriousness that any impeachment proceeding deserves.”
Collins, along with two other RINO Senators, Mitt Romney of Utah and Ben Sasse of Nebraska, were against Trump’s decision to look into the Biden family.
In order to reach the 67 votes needed to convict President Trump in the Senate, 20 Republican Senators would have to turn on the President, even if the House of Representatives did end up voting to impeach.
Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has promised to block impeachment during this week’s fundraising advertisements.
