Friday News Roundup: Cotton Demands Special Counsel and China Apparently Owns MIT

Senator Cotton makes a really strong point. – Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton urged Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to handle the investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes, money laundering and other influence peddling activities around the world. Cotton notes that the circumstances create a clear and blatant conflict of interest where the Big Guy, China Joe Potato Head Biden is concerned, and that conflict of interest cries out for the appointment of a special counsel related to the case.

From a piece at JustTheNews:

“I know the Biden campaign released details of a tax fraud investigation in Wilmington,” said Cotton during the Fox News interview. “I think that was just to show maybe the least damaging part of the investigation.”

“There’s allegations of securities fraud and money laundering related to Hunter Biden’s Chinese businesses, a crooked hospital deal with Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, out in western Pennsylvania. These investigations span multiple jurisdictions,” Cotton said, remarking that in the event that Joe Biden becomes the nation’s next president, “those prosecutors are in line to be fired next month. If there were ever circumstances that create a conflict of interest and called for a special counsel, I think those circumstances are present here.”

The Arkansas Republican said that the Biden family has leveraged Joe Biden’s government posts for their benefit in the past and would continue to do so if Biden serves as president.

“Look, the Biden family has been trading on Joe Biden’s public office for 50 years. Valerie Biden Owens, his sister, and Jim Biden, his brother, and Hunter Biden his son,” he said. “Do we really think that that will change if Joe Biden becomes president, the highest office in the land?”

[End]

Right now, the investigation is being handled out of the U.S. Attorney’s office in Delaware. Joe Potato Head Biden will no doubt follow the example of Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self and immediately fire all U.S. attorneys and replace them with leftist cronies whose first task will be to halt any potentially damaging investigations and cover them all up. The creation of a special counsel’s office would make it much more difficult, both politically and procedurally, for a Biden-appointed attorney general to come into office and sweep it all under the rug.

Sen. Cotton is absolutely correct in this instance, as he generally tends to be. But will Barr do the right thing related to this clear case of the Biden family peddling its influence around the world? His record thus far is certainly not encouraging.

After all, Byron York revealed yesterday that this investigation began way back in 2018, and was already ongoing when Barr took office. He has been fully aware of it since his first day on the job and chose to keep it all quiet for the last 21 months despite his knowledge that its existence was something American voters should know about given that Biden was the Democrat Party nominee for president.

I’m not advocating that Barr should have revealed the investigation as an October surprise. But Barr should have made the investigation public during the Democrat nominating process so that Democrat primary voters would be aware of the enormous ethical problem China Joe would create for their party. By withholding its existence and the strong evidence against not just Hunter but the entire Biden family, Barr heinously influenced the outcome of the general election.

Why, it’s almost as if Barr wanted Joe Potato Head to win. Go figure.

Meanwhile, on the election challenge front… – On Thursday 106 GOP members of the U.S. House of Representaives filed an Amicus brief of their own in support of the Texas lawsuit that challenges the clear constitutional violations that took place prior to the election in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia:

24 members of the Pennsylvania Senate and 68 members of the PA House did the same thing:

The Justice Foundation and the Amistad Project joined in the fun:

The suit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton certainly has a great deal of support.

But of course, not everyone is on board, including not a single Democrat or a single individual in the nation’s corrupt news media. Then there is RINO Nebraska Senator Ben Sassy Sasse, who yesterday snidely remarked (because everything he says is a snide remark) that Paxton’s lawsuit has other motivations.

From a story at Newsweek:

Senator Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, suggested on Thursday that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, filed a Supreme Court lawsuit attempting to overturn the election results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in an effort to get a pardon from President Donald Trump.

Sasse suggested on Thursday that a lawsuit filed with the Supreme Court by Texas’ Attorney General Ken Paxton in a bid to overturn election results in four battleground states is an attempt to garner a pardon from President Donald Trump.

The Associated Press reported in November that Paxton is under investigation by the FBI over allegations that he abused his office in an effort to benefit a wealthy donor. That investigation came after seven senior staff members under the attorney general urged federal law enforcement in an open letter in early October to “investigate allegations [against Paxton] of improper influence, abuse of office, bribery and other potential crimes.”

“I’m no lawyer, but I suspect the Supreme Court swats this away. From the brief, it looks like a fella begging for a pardon filed a PR stunt rather than a lawsuit—as all of the assertions have already been rejected by federal courts and Texas’ own solicitor general isn’t signing on,” Sasse told The Washington Examiner on Thursday, commenting on the long-shot effort to overturn the election results in the four battleground states to benefit Trump.

[End]

And who knows? Sassy Sasse may be right – the lawsuit could be destined to fail. But are the 17 other state attorneys general supporting the lawsuit also looking for pardons? Are Sasse’s 106 fellow Republicans in the House all looking for pardons? What about the 92 Pennsylvania Republicans – are they looking for pardons? Do all of those Republicans and the myriad lawyers and witnesses who are fighting the good fight in all of these states where massive election fraud did take place have bad motives in Sassy’s eyes?

What a ridiculous thing to say. But hey, it’s Ben Sassy Sasse – ridiculous is his other middle name.

And on the China influence front… – No, this is not about Hunter Biden or Eric Swalwell and his honeypot, although it certainly could be.

No, this is about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and MIT, which refused to allow Sec. Pompeo to speak on its campus out of fear of offending the formerly respected school’s Chinese benefactors. I swear I do not make this stuff up.

From a story at the New York Post:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo unloaded on officials at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Wednesday, accusing them of refusing to host him because they didn’t want to upset their Chinese interests.

Speaking at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Pompeo accused the Chinese Communist Party of “poisoning” the nation’s higher education system and said American schools were censoring anti-Beijing dissent because they were “hooked on Chinese Communist Party cash.”

“MIT wasn’t interested in having me to their campus to give this exact set of remarks. President Raphael Reif implied that my arguments might insult their ethnic Chinese students and professors,” Pompeo told the crowd in the Peach State.

“But of course nothing could further from the truth. These are the very people that this set of remarks is intended to protect, to protect their freedoms,” he said.

MIT is currently under investigation by the Department of Education for failing to fully declare foreign donations from the People’s Republic of China.

[End]

Oh.

This situation is already intolerable, and we’re about to have a pure China puppet in the presidency.

Pray for our country.

That is all.

Robert – A special counsel will only work if it’s run by somebody who is not currently an employee of the government. That’s why everybody is asking whether John Durham is still a US Attorney. If not, his actions as a special counsel are not an issue. If so, slojo can fire him and bury the investigation as soon as he assumes the office of President.

Robert

Special counsel would go nowhere, just like an FBI investigation into voter fraud or a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on big tech censorship. Even if it did, what would happen? They pull the plug on Plugs a few days earlier? True justice in this country is over, just like free and fair elections. Everyone has yuan in their back pockets, even the SCOTUS.

Show me

Expect another Mueller investigation.

Q-D'Etat

Not even close. Mueller actually tried to get Trump; these guys won’t bother even trying.

I wonder if Mueller’s top henchmen feel safe?

Silas

That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it. 😀

Reply meant for Shawn

Benjamin Willard

Is the CCP owned enemedia talking about Fredo Hunter’s laptop so they can get rid of Sum Dum Gai (Biden) and install the bitter Bindi Kamal?
Sidney Powell has said that the DOJ needs a high pressure firehose and bleaching and that is right on the money.

Silas

Well folks, Texas tried.

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/12/breaking-us-supreme-court-throws-texas-lawsuit-pennsylvania-georgia-michigan-wisconsin/

Texas has no standing according to the Supreme Court.

The road map has been laid out, but it will require the respective state legislatures to grow some cojones, get a spine and follow it.

Shawn

Could it be that ChinaJoe never makes it and Harris is sworn in? I thought they would have waited at least a year, but I underestimated the progressives.

Silas

And Biden is compromised via his darling son to the tune of nearly $1.6 Billion. Sure woonder what Daddy Dearests cut was.

Silas

So it’s Hunter, Hunter, Hunter all of a sudden. Anybody else figured out why?

If slojo actually makes it over the finish line, this is the sword he will fall on to install the communist wench.

Just Me

Back in the ’90s, I got an inkling of China’s growing reach while on an official trip to Panama. In the evenings, the hotel bar was swarming with overseas Chinese playing the slots. No telling how many were in Panama ultimately working for the CCP. I suspect far more than a few.

Q-D'Etat

Either the CCP or PLA. Most of the Chinese nationals who do research (and otherwise) who are working in our universities and elsewhere are expected to report to the PLA, according to some sources. The PLA is the tail that wags the CCP dog.

D3F1ANT

I like Cotton, but he’s a dupe if he thinks Barr will help. As usual, Barr offers JUST enough lip-service to pretend he’s legit. A Barr investigation will ensure the truth NEVER comes to light.

Q-D'Etat

There is one possibility, and only one, that you might be wrong:

That is if he’s waiting for all the usurpers and traitors are all exposed at the same time, so that they can be dealt with in one gigantic operation. All those, for example, who have sold us out to the Chinese; all those who have conspired for over 4 years to illegally prosecute President Trump; all those who have undermined our justice, law enforcement and intelligence systems.

One would have to be incredibly naiive to think Barr is waiting for such a moment, and that suddenly Barr will line them all up for prosecution, no matter how much evidence sees the light of day. Why do I say that?

https://nypost.com/2020/12/11/william-barr-hid-two-federal-probes-into-hunter-biden-for-months/

One reason for hope, though not central to Barr at all::
https://www.citizenfreepress.com/breaking/how-far-does-swalwell-spying-go-richard-grenell/

I’m not waiting for Barr to prove himself; most of the treasonous wretches who conspired with both Chinese and Russians (Hillary) will have to be prosecuted by either military tribunals or Special Counsel. Barr may end up being a side-bar.

Gregg

More and more evidence shows that the bloated bagpiper was and is btfsplk’s and his master’s ‘wingman’. If btfsplk is smart, which he and his handlers aren’t, he would keep Barr as AG as a perfect cover for their crimes against President Trump and America.

Speaking of a btfsplk administration following in the footsteps of BJC and ‘the One’ and firing all the other – 50 or so – us attorneys on Jan 20, 2021: Don’t any of these people want to keep their jobs? I’m sure most if not all have some sort of golden parachute where they may actually do better not getting paid a measly government salary, but gee whiz, is there not anyone in Barrs DOJ who want to see justice served? Same goes for Wray’s FIB. Under normal logic and in normal times, I would have a hard time believing that all of them would just willingly allow Barr to sell their careers down the river for partisan purposes. But these are not in any way ‘normal times’.

Most of these attorneys are not from nor so they work in the DC area, so why are they so willing to allow this political hack to sell out America AND their careers?

Loyalty to something bigger than America, and its constitution must be in play. The swamp is wide and deep. Unfortunately President Trump was only able to skim off the top in his first four years. But he has at least shown its breath to many Americans in his first term; now in his second term he must turn it into a desert.

Q-D'Etat

So China owns MIT.
The bigger question: who DOESN’T China own these days?
Sure looks like a lot of carpenters will need to be hired in order to build all the scaffolds.

Jobs, jobs! Jobs.

Q-D'Etat

And on yet another front: “judge” Emmet Sullivan plans to audition for Les Miserables for the role of Inspector Javert, a role for which he has been practicing almost daily:

May the story end the same way as in the play and movie, and in the same manner. (How far is it to the river Seine?)

Q-D'Etat

On the China front, as Dave says:
