People are waiting with bated breath to see the House in January go full steam ahead into investigations dealing with the Biden family’s scandals in business dealings with foreign companies.
Even though GOP in the Senate won’t have control in the coming year, Sen. Ted Cruz is already setting the stage by asking George P. Kent questions about Biden family corruption.
Kent was the Deputy Assistant Secretary overseeing policy regarding Ukraine when there were questionable activities by Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Joe Biden’s threat against a prosecutor.
Cruz tried to seize the day when questioning Kent, but Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) tried cut him off to protect Biden.
Before he was cut off, Cruz got this question in: “Do you think Joe Biden holding a billion dollars hostage to force the Ukrainian government to fire the prosecutor that is investigating the corrupt oligarch who’s paying his son a million dollars a year–Did getting that prosecutor fired benefit that oligarch?”
Shaheen then interrupted, “I am not going to allow him to answer the question.”
Cruz demanded that Shaheen let Kent answer the question, “Let him answer the question. Why are you afraid of him answering the question?”
Finally, she relented, and let Kent answer.
“The prosecutor who was fired by the Ukrainian Parliament did nothing to investigate Zlochevsky and everything Vice President Biden, the State Department, and the US Embassy did, acted in good faith to reduce corruption and help the Ukrainians,” Kent responded, not answering the specific question.
“So firing him did not benefit the oligarch?” Cruz pressed.
Shaheen then cut him off again and Cruz responded, “You’re protecting the president well.”
They might be able to shut Cruz down right now, but this is just the beginning. Soon the House will see that floodlights will be focused on what Democrats are trying to sweep under the rugs.
