Quiet meetings held with GOP to kill Biden impeachment probe

U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., was a key player behind ex-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's snap impeachment of President Donald Trump, a scheme that ultimately failed.

He called Trump the "inciter in chief" for failing to "send help" during the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol, even though Trump had offered additional National Guard troops and Pelosi was among those who rejected the offer.

Now Raskin is insisting that Joe Biden be considered exempt from even being investigated for impeachment over what the evidence so far shows is a years-long family enterprise to collect millions of dollars, sometimes from hostile foreign entities, in exchange for the influence Joe Biden had, or has.

A report from Fox News explains how Raskin, the chief Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, has been lobbying Republicans, or as the report describes, "informally meeting … behind closed doors."

He's telling them to give up any effort to do an impeachment investigation of Joe Biden.

That vote could come in the next week or so.

Fox cited its sources as explaining how Raskin is targeting GOP members to do his bidding.

Fox reported it obtained "fact sheets" that Democrats are using to try to persuade GOP members to kill even the investigation.

A Democratic House aide claimed that Republicans may not be getting "all of the facts" from their party members who have been digging up evidence on the Bidens' influence peddling so far, so Democrats have listed their arguments and are handing them out.

"These fact sheets are a hat in hand, fact-based appeal to House Republicans," a senior House Democratic aide claimed to Fox News Digital. "Republicans may not be getting all of the facts from Mr. Comer, so we are making sure that they have the full picture as they decide whether to endorse this impeachment effort."

The report said one memo claims that there should be special accommodation because the Bidens have been cooperative, even though that hasn't happened all the time. Hunter Biden has refused to comply with a subpoena to testify.

Another defends Joe Biden's threat to Ukraine to withhold American help if they didn't fire a prosecutor investigating corruption at Burisma, a company paying Hunter Biden $1 million a year to be on its board. That company also was linked to the Bidens through an FBI informant who reported Burisma officials complained of paying Joe and Hunter Biden each a $5 million bribe.

Comer has challenged the Democrats for saying there's no evidence while ignoring what has been discovered – and working to prevent any more information being available.

Joe Biden repeatedly has claimed he had nothing to do with, nor any knowledge of, Hunter's business schemes, while the evidence now shows he met with Hunter's associates, talked with them, and even was designated to get a percentage from one of those deals.
