Opinion| Mark Sidney| Just when you thought things could not get worse for Lyin’ Joe Biden, they do … again.
Do not let the old guy fool you, Biden and his campaign appear to be seriously sweating over the attention to, what sure appears to be, his rampant corruption and abuse of office.
Just as more news broke about other Biden family members seeming to benefit from Uncle Joe’s position in the Obama admin, Politico has revealed the contents of a letter which the Biden camp had the gall to send out to the media.
Keep in mind, this is not the first time that Biden and co have had the balls to do something like this.
According to USA Today, and many others:
‘Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign is asking TV networks to not book Rudy Giuliani’
‘WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign urged top TV network executives Sunday to stop booking Rudy Giuliani on their shows, accusing President Donald Trump’s personal attorney of introducing “increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.”
In an email sent Sunday obtained by USA TODAY, Biden senior adviser Anita Dunn and deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield wrote that live fact-checking during Giuliani’s appearances is “no longer enough.”
“We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump,” the two wrote. “By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.”
“We write to demand that in service to the facts, you no longer book Rudy Giuliani, a surrogate for Donald Trump who has demonstrated that he will knowingly and willingly lie in order to advance his own narrative,” the email continued.’
Apparently the outrage at the time, that a former Vice President of the United States and Presidential candidate would so obviously try to abuse his position in society in order to keep information which he deems damaging to him out of the news, was not enough for Joe.
Now Biden is going even further according to Politico:
Joe Biden’s campaign issued a memo to media outlets on Monday warning them against spreading “false accusations” driven by President Donald Trump and Republicans against the former vice president.
The memo, released a day before the start of Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, says there is “no evidence” for disproven claims pushed by the president that Biden sidelined a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating an energy company that his son, Hunter, held a high-paid position with.
Trump pushed a “a malicious and conclusively debunked conspiracy theory” about Biden, deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield and senior campaign adviser Tony Blinken wrote. “Not only is there no evidence for the GOP’s malicious attacks on the Vice President, those attacks have been actively debunked.”
The memo represents an especially strong rebuke of the GOP-backed conspiracy theories, which media “must state clearly and unambiguously that they have been discredited and debunked by authoritative sources,” Bedingfield and Blinken said.
“To fail to make clear that the conspiracy theory and false accusations about Joe Biden have been comprehensively disproven, to artificially prop-up these egregious lies based on the ‘principle’ that if partisans make accusations, they have to be treated as legitimate regardless of the facts, is to make you an enabler of misinformation,” the memo warned reporters and media outlets.
‘Conspiracy theory’ … these days when you see that phrase you are usually close to the pay dirt it seems. My guess is that the Biden story is about to blow itself wide open and Joe is terrified that he will be called to testify, under oath, before the nation. Or, even worse, his son Hunter will.
Methinks the lady toucher doth protest too much.
