CNN's Cooper Exonerates the Biden’s: Trump 'Falsely Accused' Your Son With 'No Evidence'

CNN devoted the first 20 minutes of the 2020 Democratic primary debate to impeachment and actually asked the candidates some tough questions on whether the process makes any sense. Yet, moderator Anderson Cooper made sure to exonerate the Bidens, telling Joe Biden that your son has been “falsely accused” and there’s “no evidence” of any wrongdoing when it comes to Ukraine.

Cooper began by repeating Democratic talking points, cheering, “The impeachment inquiry is centered on President Trump's attempts to get political dirt from Ukraine on Vice-President Biden and his son, Hunter. Mr. Vice President, President Trump has falsely accused your son of doing something wrong while serving on a company board in Ukraine. I want to point out there's no evidence of wrongdoing by either one of you.”

(A CNN.com article posted for the debate similarly exonerated the Bidens: “There is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe or Hunter Biden.”)

Having offered the helpful disclaimer, Cooper finally got around to challenging the frontrunner: “Having said that on Sunday, you announced if you are president, no one in your family will be involved in any foreign businesses. My question is, if it's not okay for a President's family to be involved in foreign businesses, why was it okay for your son when you were Vice-President?”

However, before the first part of that query, Cooper surprisingly asked a series of questions wondering whether impeachment was pointless or a distraction. Here are a sample:


ANDERSON: COOPER: Senator Harris, Nancy Pelosi said members of Congress have to be, in her words, “fair to the President” and give him a chance to exonerate himself. You have said that based on everything you have seen, you would vote to remove him from office. Is that being fair to the President?

8:06

COOPER: Senator Booker, you have said that President Trump’s quote, “moral vandalism” disqualifies him from being president.” Can you be fair in an impeachment trial? Please respond.

8:08

COOPER: Senator Klobuchar, what do you say to those who feel that impeachment is a distraction from issues that impact people's day to day lives, health care, the economy and could backfire on Democrats?

8:09

COOPER: Secretary Castro, is impeachment a distraction?

The CNN journalist then pressed Pete Buttigieg:

Mayor Buttigieg, you said impeachment should be bipartisan. There has been, obviously, very little Republican support to date. Yet Democrats are proceeding. Is it a mistake?

The first 15 questions were about impeachment. At one point, Cooper followed-up with Biden, demanding:

Hold on. Mr. Vice-President. As you said, your son Hunter gave an interview and admitted that he made a mistake and showed poor judgement by serving on the board. Did you make a mistake by letting him? You were the point person at the time.

Although many queries were tough, he also wondered, “Senator Sanders, do Democrats have any chance but to impeach?”

My Thoughts:

When the Democrats SAY, there is NO evidence, THAT means that there is ALL KINDS of "Evidence"! ALL Democrats are 100% Dishonest! THIS is PROOF Positive!
