Why the Dems Aren't Freaking

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy says Republican lawmakers may consider an impeachment inquiry of President Joe Biden over unproven claims of financial misconduct, responding to enormous GOP pressure to demonstrate support for Donald Trump ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

For one thing, compared to the grifting of the TOFF's family (see, $2 billion slush fund given by the Saudis to Jared the Wonder Boy), whatever Hunter may or may not have done is going to look like pretty small beer. Which the Democrats will happily point out. The Democrats will also happily point out all of the pressing issues confronting the country, but the MAGA Morons are laser-focused on bringing down Biden's son, who has had no role in his father's administration. Unlike Jared the Wonder Boy.

Oh, sure, all of that plays well for the MAGA Traitors. But as for indpendents and the non-MAGA Republicans, it won't play so well.

Speaking of MAGA Morons, Bozo Rudy had to concede, in court, that he has been lying though his teeth about election fraud.

Rudy Giuliani has conceded that he made public comments falsely claiming two Georgia election workers committed ballot fraud during the 2020 presidential race but is arguing that the statements were protected by the First Amendment.

That assertion by Giuliani, who as part of Donald Trump’s legal team tried to overturn results in battleground states, came in a filing Tuesday in a lawsuit by Ruby Freeman and Wandrea “Shaye” Moss. Their lawsuit from December 2021 accused the former New York City mayor of defaming them by falsely stating that they had engaged in fraud while counting ballots at State Farm Arena in Atlanta.

They're going to still have to prove damages, but I suspect that won't be a difficult lift.

Elsewhere, another Republican candidate for president has been engaging in financial fuckery, with possible foreign funding.

A government watchdog group is asking federal regulators to investigate a $500,000 contribution to a super PAC backing Miami Mayor Francis Suarez’s presidential bid, citing possible campaign finance laws violations.

The nonpartisan group Campaign Legal Center said it filed the complaint with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday. The complaint says the business PassionForest, LLC, which sells artificial flowers on, did not have the financial means to make such a large contribution and was instead used to hide the identities of the true contributors to the political action committee America for Everyone, now called SOS America.

Campaign Legal Center also says the artificial flower shop accused in the scheme filed a trademark application listing a Chinese address and the seller information listed by shows a ZIP code in Shenzhen, in southeastern China. The group says the scheme could have been meant to hide foreign contributions, which are prohibited.

Suarez's superPAC wasted no time in throwing down the race card. Which one can take as a tacit admission of "OK, ya got me", if one is so inclined.

Finally, DeSantis's campaign got caught flirting with Nazi themes and had to do a ritual firing. Which should surprise nobody.

The goddamn Republicans don't care about malfeasance, they want to impeach Biden for retribution, but Kevin can't get the votes, which is the real reason why the Dems aren't worried.

They were announcing their intention of impeaching Biden as soon as they knew they would have the majority in the house. The reason for the impeachment "to be determined". It's all a distraction and meant to keep their base riled instead of them learning that they have nothing for the country and the people. the MAGAs have the ability to get riled up about whatever is pushed out there even if it's opposite of what they were outraged two weeks. Cancel culture, woke, M&Ms,coffee makers, Bud Light, groomers, laptops, CRT,The Little Mermaid, gas stoves and so on and so forth.
