The real reasons behind the Trump impeachment inquiry


BREXIT more or less eclipses everything else in the British media at the moment. But news that the American Democrats had finally launched a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump over what they claim to be ‘the Ukraine scandal’ did get reported, much to the delight of the BBC and the Guardian’s ever-virtuous reporters, for whom no punishment for Trump’s trangressions could be bad enough.

The catalyst was a CIA whistle-blower who raised the alarm about a July 25 telephone call between Mr Trump and Volodymyr Zelenskiy, the president of Ukraine. The Democrats have used it to accuse Mr Trump of pressuring Mr Zelenskiy to investigate Joe Biden, the Democrat front-runner, over business dealings his son Hunter had with an energy company in Ukraine. It is proving a double-edged sword. ‘Donations for Trump’s 2020 war chest surge as impeachment bid fires up Republicans’, the Telegraph reports. 

Why? What many Americans but fewer Brits will be aware of are the other reasons the Democrats have for this latest attack on Trump.

Conservative radio host Mark Levin, the author of Unfreedom of the Press, explained those reasons this weekend in a vigorous defence of the President. There is more to it, he argued. The US media are trying to protect Biden while ignoring a massive Democrat scandal about the Biden family.

‘My question is, why is Joe Biden above the law? Why is his son above the law? Where is Hunter Biden today? Where is the media? Don’t they want to know? Don’t they want to know if the leading contender for the Democrat nomination is a crook and if his son is a crook?’

Don’t expect these questions to be asked by the ‘President Trump is racist’ BBC.

You can watch Levin in action here on Sunday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends.

NB for beleaguered Boris on how to deal with the media. This is how Trump does it. On his own terms. Rule number One: Attack back.

Soon they’ll wish they’d never mentioned the word impeachment.
