Senate Democrat Who Claimed Evidence of Trump-Ukraine Quid Pro Quo Changes His Story

Westlake Legal Group a8636803-f428-4e76-ab5b-b516cf1d9e5e-620x317 Senate Democrat Who Claimed Evidence of Trump-Ukraine Quid Pro Quo Changes His Story whistle-blower Ukraine Trump scandal pressure Politics media bias Made up lying Joe Biden hack Front Page Stories Front Page free beacon Featured Story donald trump democrats corruption Chris Murphy

It’s almost like all these Democrats who constantly proclaim they’ve got evidence that will bring Trump down are just full of it?

As we move through the ridiculousness that is the current Trump-Ukraine “scandal,” one figure that attempted to place himself as offering corroboration of wrongdoing was Sen. Chris Murphy. He claimed that Ukrainian president Zelensky personally told him Trump pressured him to investigate Biden.

This per the Free Beacon.

Senator Chris Murphy (D., Conn.), who traveled to Ukraine in early September, told reporters this week that he had heard “directly” from Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky that Zelensky felt pressured by Trump to investigate Hunter Biden’s involvement with Ukrainian gas giant Burisma…

…The senator said Monday that the “entire new Ukrainian administration” including Zelensky told him they believed the United States withheld aid due to his “unwillingness to investigate the Bidens.”

“Once I got on the ground there, I heard about how confused the entire new Ukrainian administration was about the nature of these demands they were getting from the Trump administration to conduct this political investigation, and that they worry that the aid that was being cut off to Ukraine by the president was a consequence for their unwillingness, at the time, to investigate the Bidens,” Murphy said, adding that the concern was relayed to him “from the president directly.”

This was bandied about early this week as proof that Trump had broken the law and applied immense pressure on the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden. Eventually, we’d get the transcript and learn that it was a completely mundane conversation with no pressure or threats applied. Actually, it was surprising just how nonchalant Trump was about Biden. He didn’t press the issue at all and Ukraine wasn’t even aware of any holdup with the military aid.

It’s also worth nothing that Murphy’s claims of what Zelensky told him were back-filled. He originally made no mention of any such conversation and only took to the press to make his claims after the whistle-blower story broke. It was way, way too convenient. Then the Beacon got a hold of the Sept. 11th audio, where Murphy is shown to have no mentioned any of this.

Now, apparently realizing he’s been caught in a lie, Murphy is running to change his story.

Oops. That’s pretty for removed from “they thought aid was being withheld because of Biden” isn’t it? Far removed might be an understatement. It’s not even close to the same thing.

And just like that, another plank in all this nonsense collapses. Will any media outlet call out Murphy for lying? Of course they won’t, but I’m not sure it matters anymore. There are plenty of alternative forms of media that are doing great work on this story and the news is getting out there. CNN and The New York Times can keep playing patty cake.

This just came over the wire.

Iran, who just last week was defiantly proclaiming they wouldn’t move an inch under Trump’s sanctions pressure, is now saying they’ll offer amendments and concessions on the Iran nuclear deal for relief.

Iran’s economy has been in shambles and their people are growing more and more restless. Last year, we saw widespread protests on the matter and the anti-America rhetoric of the Mullahs is having less of an impact in galvanizing domestic support.

As to how President Trump should respond to this? My opinion is he should laugh in their face. They had their chance to negotiate and save their regime. Let them collapse. It’s not like they can be trusted to hold to any new re-writing of the nuclear deal anyway.

Finally: White House to Target Illegal Alien Remittances, Put Pressure on Their Home Countries

Better late than never, but this should have done two years ago.

The Border Patrol has been overrun on the southern border and now the White House is making some new moves to combat the situation. They are preparing to target illegal alien remittances, i.e. money sent back to their home countries from their unlawful work within the United States

The White House is planning on targeting remittance payments made by illegal immigrants in the wake of an ongoing migrant flood at the U.S. southern border, a senior administration official told reporters Tuesday…

…The White House plan to go after remittance payments falls in line with a proposal from former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who is being considered to replace outgoing DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

This is common sense.

If the major draw for illegal immigrants is economic (and it is given most asylum claims are fraudulent), stopping the ability to send cash back to people in Mexico, Honduras, etc. will go a long way tamping down the motivation to illegally enter the country.

Perhaps more importantly, it puts pressure on those countries to do something about the migrant flows. Kris Kobach is hoping to become the new DHS Secretary and has been pushing this idea.

Kobach told Breitbart, “The threat I propose is one that actually helps us if we follow through on it. That is the threat of ending remittances from the majority of people in the United States from Mexico who are here illegally,” adding “they don’t want to risk losing that massive flow of foreign capital. In most years, it’s their second biggest source of foreign capital.”

Whether Kobach has a chance at the position, I’m not sure. He’d supposedly have a hard time in the confirmation process but perhaps it’s time to stop worrying about that and start playing hardball. If he can garner 50 votes, I wouldn’t shy away from him.

To this point, the “pressure” we’ve applied on places like Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, etc. has been to send them hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign aid. It hasn’t worked. The quickest way to get anybody to jump when you say jump is to hit them in the pocketbook. Trump has sought to cut aid, and that’s a good start, but it’s the billions in remittances that really make things tick.

As I said above, this should have been done a long time ago. I think Trump’s lack of consistency among his border policies has only hurt the situation. He needs to stop paying attention to whether CNN criticizes him and just do what needs to be done. Had he introduced a sweeping package of actions back in 2017 and stuck with them, Republicans could be arguing from a position of strength right now. Instead, we’ve had multiple policies put in place and rescinded, only adding to the chaos narrative used to now attack him.

With all of this said, I give it two weeks after such a policy is put in place before some Obama appointed Judge in California puts a nationwide injunction in place based on absolutely nothing but his/her political opinions. We are living in an era of pure judicial tyranny, where anything can be used to justify stripping the President of his constitutional powers. Until the Supreme Court stops avoiding the tough issues and puts these lower courts in their place, it will continue.
