‘Dirty’ Jared Kushner should be targeted if GOP makes impeachment trial about Bidens: strategist

Published

on

President Donald Trump has signaled that he wants Senate Republicans to turn his impeachment trial around on Democrats by actually making it a trial of the Biden family.

The president on Thursday signaled that he wants former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, to testify at his impeachment trial in an effort to make the trial less about his own misconduct and more about purported misconduct by the Democrats.

However, Democratic strategist Simon Rosenberg on Thursday proposed a plan to counter this kind of misdirection: Going after Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, whose shady dealings with world leaders have so far escaped significant scrutiny.

“Ds should make very clear that if the Rs call Hunter Biden at the Senate trial, they will convene House hearings on nepotism and familial leveraging of power for personal gain,” he writes on Twitter. “They can subpoena Trump/Kushner business records and demand they testify in public.”

Rosenberg also outlines how the nepotism of the Trump administration is worse than what Hunter Biden did when he accepted a job at Ukrainian energy company Burisma while his father was vice president, as both Kushner and wife Ivanka Trump are White House officials.

“And of course the big difference between what Hunter Biden did and what Ivanka/Jared have done is that Hunter was a private citizen, conducting private business,” he explains. “The Kushners are enriching themselves while serving in government, an unprecedented event in US history.”

He then breaks down Kushner’s long list of sins.

“Kushner’s wrong doing is Olympian in scale, as no other WH staffer would have survived what he’s done, and it just goes on and on — lying on his security forms, gaming of clearance system, violation of official records act, self-enrichment, etc,” he writes. “Dirty dirty princeling.”

George Conway blasts ‘blundering cheat’ Trump in new op-ed: ‘His name should live in infamy’

Published

on

Prominent conservative attorney George T. Conway III has written yet another Washington Post op-ed blasting President Donald Trump.

"If there’s one thing we know about President Trump, it’s that he lies and he cheats. Endlessly," Conway wrote. "And shamelessly. But still, mostly, incompetently."

"So it should have come as no surprise that Trump finally went where no U.S. president had ever gone before. In a tweet last week, he actually suggested that the country 'Delay the Election.' That trial balloon was a brazen effort to see if he can defraud his way into four more years in the White House," he explained. "And why not try? After all, Trump has managed to swindle his way through life, on matters large and small, essential and trivial."

Trump’s ‘delay the election’ tweet laid the groundwork for him and his followers to have an excuse if he loses

Published

on

Writing in The New York Times this Monday, Gail Collins and Bret Stephens discuss their contention that President Trump is seeing the writing on the wall regarding the 2020 election, an analysis born from his recent tweet where he suggests delaying the election.

According to Stephens, Trump's tweet is a sign that he knows "in his heart" that he's going to lose in November.

"He’s laying the groundwork not for a coup but for an excuse, both for himself and for his followers," Stephens says. "It creates a mythology to explain defeat, attack Joe Biden and keep the Trump family relevant in the Republican Party. The fact that he’d pull a stunt like this is another reason it’s so important that he lose in a landslide in November."

‘I do this for a living and I don’t know what the Republicans’ position is’: MSNBC reporter confused by GOP unemployment stance

Published

on

Capitol Hill reporter Garrett Haake confessed that he has no idea what the Republican officials want when it comes to the unemployment stimulus bill.

A bill was passed in May by Democrats in the House, but the Senate ignored the problem until the last minute, allowing the additional unemployment funds from the stimulus to sunset and leave Americans scrambling to pay their Aug. 1 rent or mortgages.

The Senate then gave up, handing the responsibility for the bill over to the White House and told them to negotiate with the House, but the White House is less interested in unemployment benefits and wants more corporate bailouts.
