John Solomon inadvertently detonated the House impeachment casehttps://www.mediamatters.org/fox-news/john-solomon-inadvertently-detonated-house-impeachment-case
The right-wing scandal machine relies on confusing the public with references to an obscure cast of characters and a plethora of minute details which they claim prove their political foes engaged in nefarious deeds. But when you dig through the labyrinthine particulars they rail about, you often find that the core of their story is total nonsense. Here is one such case.
The right-wing conspiracy theory that Joe Biden, as vice president, pushed for Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor in order to aid his son Hunters business dealings is a pillar of House Republicans push to impeach him. Even some GOP members of Congress have pointed out there is no evidence to support this long-debunked narrative. But the hypothesis is further demolished by a document published last month by of all people the fabulist John Solomon, which indisputably confirms that at the time of that meeting, it was the policy of the U.S. government to seek that prosecutors removal.
The right has baselessly claimed for years that when Biden told Ukraines leaders during a December 2015 visit that the U.S. would not release $1 billion in loan guarantees unless they fired Viktor Shokin, the countrys prosecutor general, he was acting to benefit Hunter by halting Shokins purported probe of Burisma Holdings, on whose board Hunter served. Solomon, a former Fox News contributor and Washington Times editor, played a key role in concocting this pseudoscandal, alongside Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Fox News host Sean Hannity, and others, as they sought to damage Bidens 2020 presidential run.
Their allegations were nonsense: Biden was carrying out U.S. policy, Shokin had been widely faulted by Western governments for failing to prosecute corruption, and his Burisma probe had stalled, as detailed in contemporaneous news reports and sworn testimony during then-President Donald Trumps first impeachment. But House Republicans have revived the conspiracy theory as the core of their Biden impeachment plan.
Meanwhile not much is getting thru Congress. I hold out hope that the American people will eventually "catch on" and start voting against the do-nothing instigators.
I mean I see in the piece that he wrote about a new memo that helps Biden but of course the right will spin that exactly as they want and they already have.
So what is detonated?
lawsuit against the IRS as outlets that IRS agents went on and divulged Hunter's personal and private tax information. Solomon and Kelly were named more than the others but CNN a couple of times and once for CBS. It tells me that these two MSM outlets are peddling in RW propaganda, illegally obtained along with the other two extremists.
