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

Published

on

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.

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
