The Democrat’s impeachment is a flop. Even they admit as much after Pelosi stunned the political world by delaying sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate and hinting that she may never even bother sending them at all.

If she had a strong case do you think she would do this? Of course it is political but remember, Trump ran against both establishment parties and many on both sides (Mitt Romney) would love to see Trump fall.

This is their only chance (Trump will win in 2020 believe me) and if Pelosi had a real case and not this film-flam deal she would send over the articles and hope for the best.

But she knows our foreign policy is for the president to set and she knows Ukraine is corrupt and she knows Hunter’s no-show job was a joke.

So while Pelosi debates whether she will even bother to send the bogus charges forward, the GOP Senate is making their move.

They are expanding their investigation into Hunter Biden and want Obama-era officials to testify under oath.

From Breitbart:

Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Ron Johnson (R-WI) made the announcement on Wednesday as House Democrats prepared to impeach President Donald Trump in part because of the younger Biden’s overseas work. The senators — who chair the Senate Homeland Security, Finance, and Judiciary Committees respectively — are looking into whether Hunter Biden and the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma benefited from exclusive access to the Obama administration.

As part of the investigation, the senators now plan to interview former top aides to former Vice President Joe Biden and ex-Secretary of State John Kerry. Included on the list are former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, former international energy affairs envoy Amos Hochstein, ex-Under Secretary of State Catherine Novelli, former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, and one-time Kerry chief of staff David Wade.

Documents revealed through a Freedom of Information Act request in November showed that officials like Blinken, Hochstein, and Novelli met with Burisma lobbyists in 2015 and 2016. The meetings were arranged after the lobbyists name-checked Hunter Biden when reaching out to the Obama-era officials.

Graham, in particular, has cited the timing of those meetings and the pressure campaign that followed — in which Joe Biden demanded Ukraine fire its top prosecutor, who at the time was looking into Burisma for corruption — as an impetus for further investigation.

The GOP senators’ decision to expand their investigation by interviewing the former Obama administration comes as Hunter Biden and his father struggle to explain why he was appointed to Burisma’s board of directors in the first place.
