Frankly, I am outraged – outraged! – by the Democrats’ contempt for the “rules-based international order.” After all, the Treaty Between the United States of America and Ukraine on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters, signed by President William J. Clinton in 1998 and ratified by the US Senate in 2000, makes it perfectly clear that US authorities are entitled to ask their counterparts in Ukraine for, well, mutual assistance in criminal matters. Might those matters include, say, investigating potential criminal activity by American citizens in Ukraine? I would have thought so.
Why are the Democrats so intent on tearing up “international norms”?
How does this not permit Mr. Trump asking the president of Ukraine for “assistance” in criminal matters arising out of “collusion with Russia,” as specified within the scope of Robert Mueller’s special prosecutor activities? For instance, the matter of CrowdStrike. The cybersecurity firm was co-founded by Russian ex-pat Dmitri Alperovitch, who also happens to be a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, an anti-Russian think tank funded by Ukrainian billionaire, Viktor Pinchuk, who donated at least $25 million to the Clinton Foundation before the 2016 election. Crowdstrike was the company that “examined” the supposedly hacked DNC servers, while somebody in the Obama administration prevented the FBI from ever seeing them. Does this sound a little like part of the origin story of RussiaGate? Is that not exactly the potential criminal matter that the current attorney general, Mr. Barr, is officially investigating?
Perhaps, under the year 2000 treaty, Mr. Trump was within his rights to ask the new President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, for assistance on that. And also, the question of former vice-president Joe Biden’s levering US aid to Ukraine in his demand to fire the prosecutor investigating the company, Burisma Holdings, that just happened to hire his son, Hunter, to a $64,000-a-month seat on the board of directors, not long after the younger Mr. Biden was kicked out of the US Navy reserve for cocaine use — what a sterling fellow!
I suppose the Biden family is above the law because Joe Biden happens to be the Democratic front-runner. Funny, that novel legal principal didn’t stop the Deep State from investigating Trump’s campaign in 2016.
The CIA should have learned its lesson from the #MeToo era: presidential harassment is NOT OK!
From Michael Goodwin in the New York Post:
When it comes to brickbats, Trump is perhaps the most battle-tested occupant the Oval Office has ever known, yet the two incidents demonstrate that the war against him has entered a vicious new phase. Efforts to end his presidency, one way or another, have reached a fever pitch, and Trump would be foolish to assume they will fail. His margin for error is approximately zero.
Indeed, Trump could be accused of understatement in describing anyone who participated with the so-called whistleblower as “almost a spy.”
There is nothing “almost” about it. The trained CIA officer used his trusted position in the White House to gather secret information from what he claims were “multiple US government officials.”
He retained Democratically connected lawyers and injected his allegations into the political bloodstream with one intent: to get Trump removed from office.
No means no, guys. In the meantime, the media is palpably desperate to sweep the real scandal under the rug. From Peter Schweizer:
1. Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, joined the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma in April 2014, according to RSB bank records. Hunter Biden had little background in energy. Over a 16-month period, Burisma paid $3.1 million to a bank account associated with Hunter’s business.
2. Joe Biden led the Obama administration’s policy toward Ukraine when he served as vice president. Biden helped shape Ukraine’s energy and anti-corruption policies, issues that directly impact Burisma.
7. In 2013, then-Vice President Biden and his son Hunter flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Ten days later, Hunter Biden’s firm scored a $1.5 billion deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China.
Nope, not shady at all.
You are not alone.
In New York City, 494,549 people voted for Trump in 2016.
Sure, that’s only 18% of the vote. But think about it this way. If Trump-voting New Yorkers could break away and form their own city, it would be the 38th largest metropolis in the US… bigger than Kansas City and almost as big as Atlanta and Sacramento.
Gotham is one of the bluest cities in the Union, but make no mistake. The greatest city in the world is also the best place to be if you’re looking to Keep America Great.
Not only are we the financial epicenter of the country, we’re also a hub for culture, media and politics. Trump launched his 2016 campaign here and his 2020 reelection campaign is headquartered in Trump Tower.
What happens in New York has ripples around the world, and we relish being at the center of it. The contempt of our liberal Manhattan neighbors is our badge of pride.
We support our president 100%, and we want him to be reelected… maybe more than once. (Kidding! Or are we?)
DeplorablesNYC is an independent platform to bring together Gotham’s Trump supporters for a single goal: get this man another 4 years in office.
We are not affiliated with the Trump campaign in any way. To find out more about that, visit the official campaign website here.
