ę Live Press Conference; Trump Addresses Ukraine Hoax and Impeachment "Inquiry"

You're Not Going to Believe This, But the Media Is Ignoring and Justifying The Democrats' Overt Pressure on Ukraine to Open Political Investigations They Thought Would Hurt Trump

At Hot Air, taken from Marc Thiessen writing for the Amazon Corporate Informant:

It got almost no attention, but in May, CNN reported that Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) and Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) wrote a letter to Ukraineís prosecutor general, Yuriy Lutsenko, expressing concern at the closing of four investigations they said were critical to the Mueller probe. In the letter, they implied that their support for U.S. assistance to Ukraine was at stake. Describing themselves as "strong advocates for a robust and close relationship with Ukraine," the Democratic senators declared, "We have supported [the] capacity-building process and are disappointed that some in Kyiv appear to have cast aside these [democratic] principles to avoid the ire of President Trump," before demanding Lutsenko "reverse course and halt any efforts to impede cooperation with this important investigation."

So, itís okay for Democratic senators to encourage Ukraine to investigate Trump, but itís not okay for the president to allegedly encourage Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden?

The media's ignoring this (note that Thiessen is an alleged conservative-leaning opinion columnist; reporters aren't interested in touching this story.

When forced to mention this -- only because Trump mentioned it in his press conference -- here's how "reporter" Josh Rogin of the Amazon Corporate Informant dismissed the story:

Oh -- Democrats explicitly conditioning continuing military support on Ukraine opening up investigations into Trump is "fighting corruption," but asking them to re-start an investigation into Biden is itself a corrupt request.

OH.

By the way, Ukraine wasn't even being asked to re-open the investigation -- they already had re-opened it.
