Democrat flattens Lindsey Graham’s argument of Biden ‘conflicts of interest’ using the perfect example

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) called out Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for his attacks on Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Graham alleged that it was unethical for the younger Biden to have any kind of international position in a country the U.S. was working to restabilize. It’s an odd position for Graham because he has yet to complain about the way the Trump children have benefited from their position and their father’s presidency.

“I love Joe Biden as a person but we are not going to give a pass to what is obviously a conflict of interest,” Graham tweeted Monday. “I believe Hunter Biden’s association on the Burisma board doesn’t pass the smell test. If a Republican was in the same position, they’d certainly be investigated!”

Swalwell shot back that Ivanka Trump scored a big position in the White House and then proceeded to use it to garner Chinese trademarks.

“Like a Republican president giving his unqualified child a @WhiteHouse job while she’s trademarking her name in China? You mean a Republican like that?”

There’s also the matter of Donald Trump Jr. earning $100,000 in profit from the Republican National Committee buying his book in bulk. He’s also benefiting off of his father’s promotion of the book and Fox News’ free advertising.

Lindsey Graham keeps begging Fox Views viewers for donations: ‘They’re killing me money-wise’

Published

Embattled Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham went on Fox News multiple times on Thursday to beg their right-wing audience for campaign donations.

Graham started his day on the Fox News show "Fox and Friends" -- where he begged for money.

“My opponent will raise almost $100 million in the state of South Carolina,” said Graham.

“The most money ever spent in the state on a Senate race was by me in 2014 when I spent $13 million. He raised $6 million from the time Justice Ginsburg passed away, within 72 hours and God bless Justice Ginsburg. We’re celebrating her life. I appreciate waiting ’til Saturday to announce her replacement. But I am being killed financially," he admitted. "This money is because they hate my guts.”

WATCH: Late-night hosts go off on Trump for ‘chilling’ plan ‘to steal the election’

Published

on

Late-night television hosts harshly criticized President Donald Trump for refusing to say there would be a peaceful transition of power if he loses the November election.

"In one of the more chilling moments of his presidency -- and they've been a few -- Donald Trump refused to commit to a peaceful transition of power as Republicans formulated the plan to steal the election through the courts," Seth Meyers explained.

"We're as close as we've ever been to losing our democracy and watching our government transform into an autocratic regime," he continued. "It's happen right in front our eyes right now, you don't need to wait for Trump to roll down Pennsylvania Avenue on a tank in green fatigues with a long chin-beard -- especially since if he did try to grow one he'd probably just look like a very sick chihuahua."
