what happened to "alleged"? yes we know, he's russian, sorry "ukronian"......

WE, THE LOONIES OF THE DUCKDUCKGO COMMENTARIAT, CAN INDULGE IN SAYING STRAIGHT THAT JOE BIDEN HAS BEEN CORRUPT... BUT FOR THE ABC TO PLUNGE INTO THE CESSPOOL AND TELL US THAT VIKTOR SHOKIN WAS CORRUPT, WITHOUT THE WORD ALLEGED, IS A JOURNALISTIC FAUX-STEP... THE ABC IS NOT THE ONLY MEDIA THAT INDULGE IN THIS CAPER. THE WASHINGTON POST AND OTHERS, DESPERATE TO SAVE SENILE JOE BIDEN'S ARSE, ARE ALSO ON THE BANDWAGON...

 

MEANWHILE:

White House lawyers have reportedly written a letter directing CNN, the New York Times and other US media outlets to scrutinize Republican lawmakers more aggressively as they try to impeach US President Joe Biden.

CNN and other recipients of the letter acknowledged getting the missive on Wednesday. “It’s time for the media to ramp up its scrutiny of House Republicans for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies,”Ian Sams, a spokesman for the White House Counsel’s Office, wrote in the letter. He added that the impeachment efforts should “set off alarm bells for news organizations.”

US House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-California) launched the impeachment effort on Tuesday, directing committees of the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to open a formal inquiry. He said allegations of influence-peddling and solicitation of bribes by the Biden family “paint a picture of a culture of corruption.”

Even before receiving any guidance from the White House, some US media outlets already appeared to be trying to protect the president. CNN and Associated Press, for instance, suggested that Republicans were trying to prosecute Biden without having evidence to justify their investigation. 

Those outlets apparently ignored such evidence as the sworn testimony of IRS whistleblowers and the records of bank transfers that lawmakers have already revealed. By launching impeachment proceedings, congressional committees will gain more power to subpoena documents that could help prove or debunk the allegations.

Veteran US journalist Matthew Keys, who has worked for such outlets as Reuters and Fox News, said the White House directive on impeachment coverage was “not OK.” He added, “The White House should not be encouraging, influencing or interfering in the editorial strategies of America’s newsrooms, including CNN and the New York Times.” The letter could backfire, Keys said, because “any time the media does try to hold Republicans to account, those lawmakers can simply counter by questioning whether it’s actual journalism or something encouraged by the Biden administration.”

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University, said the directive “has an uncomfortable feeling of marching orders to the media.” By trying to influence coverage of the impeachment inquiry, he argued, the administration “removes any pretense of separation between the Biden personal legal team and the White House Counsel’s Office.”

Sams, who also serves as a senior adviser to Biden, claimed that Republicans had failed in nearly nine months of investigation to “turn up any evidence of the president doing anything wrong.” He added that impeachment is “grave, rare and historic,” and the press must treat the claims of Republicans with “appropriate scrutiny.” The White House official attached a 14-page appendix to his memo providing talking points to address Republican “lies.”

Democrats previously controlled the House and twice impeached then-President Donald Trump.

steptoe and son.....

A federal grand jury in Delaware has charged US President Joe Biden’s son Hunter with unlawful possession of a gun and lying about his drug habit to obtain a firearm, according to the indictment published on Thursday.

Biden “knowingly made a false and fictitious written statement” to a licensed arms dealer in October 2018, saying he was not a drug addict on a background check form required for purchasing a gun, the indictment alleges. This resulted in him buying a Colt Cobra 38SPL revolver, knowing that as a drug addict he was not allowed to possess one.

The pistol was eventually thrown into a bin outside a Wilmington, Delaware grocery store by Hallie Biden, the wife of Hunter’s late brother Beau – who had since become Hunter’s lover – reportedly because she feared he would use it. When she went back to retrieve the gun, however, it was gone. The US Secret Service was accused of trying to cover up the entire incident.

Hunter Biden has since admitted to a crack cocaine addiction, claiming he had little to no recollection of 2018 and 2019 because of it. His drug habit became a matter of public interest in October 2020, after the New York Post published some of the contents of the laptop he had abandoned in a Delaware repair shop – including photos of him smoking crack, handling a gun, and engaging in graphic sex acts with prostitutes.

The Post story was censored in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, however, after 50 former US intelligence officials falsely declared it “Russian disinformation.” It later turned out that their letter was organized by Joe Biden’s campaign.

plea agreement struck between Hunter Biden’s lawyers and federal prosecutors in June envisioned downgrading his tax violations to misdemeanors and sentencing him to probation, while filing the firearms charges separately. The gun charges would also be “subject to a pretrial diversion agreement,” meaning no prison time, according to the lawyers. 

The deal was roundly denounced by Republicans as a sign the president’s son was getting preferential treatment by the Department of Justice, while Congress set out to investigate a whistleblower’s claims about interference from above in the work of the Delaware prosecutor assigned to the case.

While a federal judge appeared to have blocked the plea deal, Biden’s attorneys insist it remains in effect. It was not clear whether Thursday’s charges were the same as mentioned in the July agreement.
