Lobbyist bought tropical land from Biden’s brother || Politico
Scott Green, a lobbyist with close ties to Joe Biden, purchased Virgin Islands property from James Biden and then extended him a private mortgage.
“In 2005, Joe Biden’s brother bought an acre of land with excellent ocean views on a remote island in the Caribbean for $150,000. He divided it into three parcels, and the next year a lobbyist close to the Delaware senator bought one of the parcels for what had been the cost of the entire property. Later, the lobbyist gave Biden’s brother a mortgage loan on the remaining parcels.
The Virgin Islands land deal, reported here for the first time, furthers a pattern in which members of the Biden family have engaged in financial dealings with people with an interest in influencing the former vice president.
In this case, a Biden staffer left the Senate in the early ’90s to become a lobbyist. Both before and after the land transaction, his clients benefited from Biden’s support and appropriations requests. A firm the lobbyist co-founded — which features a testimonial from Biden praising his “emotional investment” in his work on its website — specializes in federal contracts for niche law enforcement and national security programs for which Biden long advocated.”
– A lot to unpack, but a legal case has a lot of facts to follow. It’s not simple, criminals make it complicated on purpose. The president had everyone reason to look into corruption, extortion and bribery in a foreign country. Rudy has the docs and the facts.
Giuliani’s critics argue Rudy crossed a few lines in gathering evidence, seriously? Giuliani is a former Federal Prosecutor from New York City, seriously you think he would cross legal red lines?
IG Report Reveals Steele Funneled Claims Through John McCain After FBI Dropped Him || Breitbart
“Late Senator John McCain provided disgraced former FBI chief James Comey with five separate reports from Christopher Steele that the FBI didn’t previously possess related to unsubstantiated allegations of collusion between Russia and President Trump’s 2016 campaign, the Justice Department’s recent Inspector General report revealed.
There have long been questions about why it was necessary for McCain to pass Steele’s anti-Trump dossier to Comey on December 9, 2016, several weeks after the November 2016 presidential election. By then, Steele had already met numerous times with FBI agents to provide them with his controversial reports. Steele, however, was terminated as an FBI source in the fall of 2016 because he spoke to the news media.
The IG report discloses that McCain gave five new Steele reports to Comey that the FBI did not previously possess, showing that McCain served as a conduit for Steele’s information to reach the FBI even after the British ex-spy was formally cut off as an FBI source.”

Jonathan Turley Makes Dispassionate Case Against Impeachment || Mediate
“Professor Jonathan Turley, one of the legal experts testifying in today’s House Judiciary Committee, argued that right now there’s not a clear case for impeachment.
Recalling his prior testimony during the Clinton impeachment saga, Turley said, “I’m not a supporter of President Trump. I voted against him. My personal views of President Trump are as irrelevant to my impeachment testimony as they should be to your impeachment vote. President Trump will not be our last president, and what we leave in the wake of this scandal will shape our democracy for generations to come.”
“I am concerned about lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and abundance of anger,” he argued. “I believe this not only fails to satisfy the standard of past impeachments but would create a dangerous precedent for future impeachments.”
Turley said he does not see “compelling evidence of the commission of a crime,” and added, “Second is the abbreviated period of this investigation, which is problematic and puzzling. This is a facially incomplete and inadequate record in order to impeach a president.”
