The Biden (Double) Standard

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 24, 2019

         IT’S TRUE WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT DOUBLE STANDARDS IN WASHINGTON. WHEN A DEMOCRAT DOES SOMETHING WRONG OR ILLEGAL, NO ONE IS HELD ACCOUNTABLE. THEY PROTECT THEIR OWN.

         SO, WHEN JOE BIDEN WAS VICE PRESIDENT AND PRESSURED UKRANIAN LEADERS TO FIRE ITS TOP PROSECUTOR WHO WAS LEADING A CORRUPTION INVESTIGATION INTO A NATURAL GAS COMPANY THAT HAD TIES TO BIDEN’S SON, NO PROBLEM. IN 2016, BIDEN THREATENED TO WITHHOLD $1 BILLION IN U.S. LOANS IF THE COUNTRY’S PROSECUTOR GENERAL WAS NOT FIRED. THE PROSECUTOR WAS LEADING AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE BEHAVIOR OF THE GAS COMPANY WHICH WAS PAYING HUNTER BIDEN A LARGE RETAINER FEE.

         AN UNNAMED WHISTLEBLOWER IS TELLING DEMOCRATS AND THE MEDIA OF A PHONE CALL BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND UKRAINE’S PRESIDENT IN WHICH TRUMP ALLEGEDLY ASKED HIM TO INVESTIGATE HUNTER BIDEN. IN POLITICS IT’S CALLED OPPOSITION RESEARCH. THE MEDIA SHOULD BE DOING IT, BUT THEY WON’T BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT TO STAIN ANY DEMOCRAT. SEE WHAT I MEAN ABOUT DOUBLE STANDARDS? I’M CAL THOMAS.
