Leahy pressured Ukraine into reopening investigation about 2020 candidate for prez - Headliners

Sen. Patrick Leahy says the impeachment process should begin because President Trump tried to influence the Ukrainian government to investigate a political rival running for president in 2020. Yet that is precisely what Sen. Leahy and two other senators did when they wrote a letter to the chief prosecutor of the Ukraine demanding that he reverse course and cooperate with the Mueller investigation. Pot calling the kettle black? 


"Sen. Leahy need only look in the mirror. Last year, Vermont’s senior senator himself attempted to restart a Ukrainian investigation into a 2020 candidate – one Donald J. Trump. He even suggested U.S. aid to Ukraine was hanging in the balance.

    D Pilone I was on the Dave Gram show this AM and wanted to make that point but callers and the two others in the studio prevented it. So I am glad you are saying it plain that way. “Joe And Son Shakedown Company” :)! Sounds about right, from what I’ve seen.

    There are two separate governments. There is the elected president and then there is the permanent Washington bureaucrats that have career jobs in all agencies. Since Kennedy the President and the press is just a figurehead to convince people to abide by the bureaucrats policies. Trump is the first president that won’t rubberstamp the deep state objectives. That is why he is hated so much by both dems and some republicans. He hires some deep state people in order to find out what they know (ie Bolton) and then fires them so they are no longer an integral part of government. Trump is the most courageous president the USA has ever seen. His speech at the UN was historic and everyone should listen to it.

    Am I surprised ? No, I don’t have any use for Leahy anyways. He’s a tool of the Democratic party plain and simple. He’s the best example there is of why we need term limits !

    What a joke ‘I’ve never seen a president do this with a foreign power," Leahy said.’”
    I am sure plenty have done it but nobody ratted them out.
    He was sure not very interested in the Joe and Son Shakedown Company.
    Too bad “loose lips Leahy” was not a little more concerned about his own past.
    People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
