Remember when Pelosi tried to impeach Trump over a phone call?
FUNNY THAT WE SET THAT STANDARD.
Cause this week, a phone call between Joe Biden and the former Afghan President Ghani leaked to the press. But unlike President Trump’s call with the Ukrainian leader, Joe’s call was not NOT perfect at all.
The call took place sometime late July and – to Biden’s credit – it shows that he was actually trying to gain some control of Afghanistan. Or at least THE PERCEPTION of what was going on in Afghanistan.
But here’s what’s bad: quid pro-Joe just couldn’t be stopped.
He can’t ask for a favor without tryin’ to pay someone off, apparently. I think that says a lot about how Biden prefers to do business.
Joe CLEARLY offered aid to Afghanistan that was contingent on whether or not the Afghan president could successfully change the PERCEPTION of the chaos that was unfolding as the Taliban took hold in the region.
Which is WAY WORSE than whatever fake news resulted in a gazillion dollar investigation of Trump that, of course, amounted to ZIP.
The Biden-Ghani call was 14 minutes long and I’m not gonna go through the whole transcript but here are just a few key quotes that I’m really gonna hang onto. (Both cause they’re super relevant and also because they seem to be complete sentences and that really shocks me?)
- Biden said: Perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are NOT going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban. And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”
- Biden also told Ghani that he should “gather prominent Afghan political figures to give a press conference” saying “that will change perception, and that will change an awful lot I think.”
- THEN Biden offered aid if Ghani succeeded in his effort to project strength saying, “we will continue to provide close air support if we know what the plan is.”
QUID PRO QUO. PLAIN AND SIMPLE.
Perhaps that’s damning enough but somehow it gets worse?
Cause the Afghan President also took the time to warn Biden about how bad the Afghanistan withdrawal could go – and remember this is more than a month ago.
He told Biden that “We are facing a full-scale invasion, composed of Taliban, full Pakistani planning and logistical support, and at least 10-15,000 international terrorists, predominantly Pakistanis thrown into this.”
This is in DIRECT conflict with the Biden administration’s repeated claim that “nobody could have known” the Taliban would take over Afghanistan so quickly.
Seems like SOMEBODY could’ve known.
And that somebody DEFINITELY told Biden.
And whoever leaked the tape of this call was probably someone who (rightfully) just can’t stand to see President Biden lying about the disaster in Afghanistan that could’ve been prevented.
Where is THIS whistleblower and when will the New York Times make a shrine for he/she/them?
If Trump can be impeached for a call with the Ukrainian President-where all he asked was for them to look into Hunter Biden’s shady business deals-SURELY we can impeach Biden for ignoring a growing threat while offering to trade military aid for a disastrous Public relations campaign.
