House Republicans Attempt to Bring Hunter Biden into Impeachment Articles

By disallowing this important piece of the puzzle, there is no real way to get to the truth of the matter.

There is a large, unturned stone right smack dab in the middle of this impeachment debacle, and it rhymes with punter ridin’.

You see, the Democrats want to impeach President Donald Trump because they contend that he asked Ukraine to belittle Joe Biden, former Vice President and current 2020 Democratic candidate.  If the Republicans were allowed to call their own witnesses during the process, however, it would have been discovered that the reality of the situation was much different.

Trump was concerned about a company called Burisma, long understood to be heavily corrupt, and the overly-lucrative contract they offered to Hunter Biden, not Joe.  Of course, this wasn’t allowed to be part of the congressional conversation, despite how many times the GOP has tried.

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are using the debate to try to justify President Trump’s actions by discrediting the son of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. Democrats on the panel defeated an amendment to kill the abuse of power charge.

The House Judiciary Committee just rejected an amendment by Representative Matt Gaetz, Republican of Florida, to remove the mention of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. from the articles of impeachment and instead name his son, Hunter Biden.

The House Judiciary Committee debate on articles of impeachment turned bitterly personal on Thursday after Representative Matt Gaetz, Republican of Florida, offered a proposal designed to justify President Trump’s conduct and cast aspersions on Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Mr. Gaetz sought to remove the reference to the elder Mr. Biden, and the description of him as “a political opponent,” from the article charging Mr. Trump with abuse of power for pressing Ukraine for investigations. Instead, the Florida Republican proposed inserting Hunter Biden’s name, and a mention of Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company that employed him on its board while his father was vice president.

Perhaps some parity will be had once the process reached the GOP-controlled Senate.
