Watch: Democrat Impeachment Lawyer Slips Up About Biden And Ukraine While Being Grilled By GOP Congressman
Well, I bet if Democrat lead impeachment lawyer Daniel Goldman could redo his testimony with Republican Congressman Doug Collins (R-GA) he would. Why do you ask? Because he screwed up royally.
On Monday under oath Goldman admitted that former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden was engaged in a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine. Goldman accidentally spilled the beans that Biden did threaten to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees until a Ukrainian state prosecutor investigating the company his son Hunter Biden sat on the board of was fired.
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) asked Goldman, “Did [Biden] ask for something, request something, and hold something of value?” (Adam Schiff would call that a quid pro quo)
I still can’t believe Goldman responded, “He did.” Goldman then tried to steer the conversation about George Kent’s testimony but it was too late, he screwed up.
No matter how hard Goldman tried to change the conversation or switch topics Collins locked in. Finally, Goldman knowing that he just implicated the Biden family said, “He did it in accordance with U.S. official policy.”
Collins proclaimed that “Joe Biden … is the only one who’s done a quid pro quo.” Collins continued, “Joe Biden’s a terrible candidate! He can destroy himself on the campaign trail, but he can’t get by this.”
As you read the media reports today they have completely ignored this portion of Goldman’s testimony. Instead, they are focusing on an exchange between Matt Gaetz and Goldman. But, you can watch the tape below there is no getting around the fact that Goldman flat out said Biden withheld funding from Ukraine until the country fired the prosecutor. What President Trump did is not even in the same universe compared to what former Vice President Joe Biden did.
