    Let's recap the witnesses. 

    1. Gale Luft - currently under indictment for arms trafficking, violating sanctions against Iran and making false statements to the FBI

    2. Smirnov - FSB cutout and under arrest for making false statements to the FBI

    3. Bobulinski - no evidence other than his words.  Met with Mark Meadows, Trump Chief of Staff,  before the election.  Wore a ski mask and received a package from Meadows. Denied he wore a ski mask under oath,  but Cassidy Hutchinson took a photo. 

    Nice impeachment inquiry.  So much winning

    And right on schedule. Now, who you believin’? 440-0, so much winning!

    The GOP leaders of the inquiry say they have uncovered information suggesting that the president did benefit from the foreign business dealings of his family members and that he used his position to help them.

    Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, emerged from the deposition late in the afternoon and said “it proved several bits of our evidence” without being more specific. He also said there were “some contradictory statements that I think need further review.”

    So this impeachment inquiry will now go to the next phase, which will be a public hearing,” Comer said, leaving without answering questions. “I think that the public hearing hopefully will clear up some discrepancies between some of the statements that were made between some of the associates and what we heard today. But all in all, I am very optimistic, very excited about this deposition.”

    Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) said that Hunter Biden had not invoked the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination during the questioning but that he repeatedly said he could not recall certain events.

    Hunter Biden is being defiant and also dishonest,” Mace said. “His testimony, some of it, is in direct conflict with other witnesses.” She would not go into detail which witnesses or what aspects were in conflict.

    And from Letter From An American:

    After an hour, Democratic committee members described to the press what was going on in the hearing room. They reported that the Republicans’ case had fallen apart entirely and that Biden had had a “very understandable, coherent business explanation for every single thing that they asked for.” While former president Trump invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate himself more than 440 times during a deposition in his fraud trial, Biden did not take the Fifth at all.

    America First Legal sues FEC to force action on Hunter Biden laptop deniers during 2020 campaign

    AFL Legal claims the 51 former intelligence officials gave Biden an in-kind campaign contribution by calling the Hunter Biden laptop 'disinformation'

    Published March 2, 2024 11:55am EST

    After the Federal Election Commission declined to act against Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign for the laptop-denying statement by 51 former intelligence officials, a conservative watchdog group is trying to force action. 

    America First Legal sued the FEC in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to force the agency that polices campaign donations and spending to act.

    "The FEC decided we’re not going to act on this. So, what the district court will do, our hope, is that it will order the FEC to investigate and take this seriously," Daniel Epstein, vice president of America First Legal, told Fox News Digital.  

    In October, the group filed an FEC complaint against the Biden for President campaign from 2020, the Biden Victory Fund, the Biden Action Fund and the Democratic National Committee for failing to report indirect contributions from the later-debunked statement by the 51 officials released on October 19, 2020, just weeks before the November 8 election, and just days before a presidential debate. 

    DOJ FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES HUNTER BIDEN'S LAPTOP IS REAL, CONTENTS MATCH APPLE ICLOUD BACKUPS

    The statement claimed without evidence that the Hunter Biden laptop was likely part of a "Russian disinformation" campaign. 

    If the FEC doesn’t act, it is "effectively encouraging disinformation to the public that may influence the election," Epstein continued. 

    An FEC spokesperson told Fox News Digital that the agency doesn’t comment on litigation. Neither the 2024 Biden presidential campaign nor the DNC responded to inquiries for this story. 

    The FEC has 60 days to respond to the lawsuit. Epstein anticipates the agency will file a motion to remand the matter back to the FEC for investigation. 

    In March 2023, former Obama administration CIA Deputy and Acting Director Michael Morrell testified to the House Judiciary and House Intelligence Committees that on October 17, 2020, then-Biden campaign staffer Antony Blinken, now the secretary of state, contacted him to discuss drafting a statement to attack the Hunter Biden laptop story first reported by the New York Post.  Morrell circulated the statement among other anti-Trump former intelligence officials. The 51 former officials who signed on included Leon Panetta, John Brennan and James Clapper from the Barack Obama administration, as well as Michael Hayden from the George W. Bush administration — all vocal critics of Trump.

    Eventually, both the New York Times and Washington Post verified the authenticity of the Hunter Biden laptop. 

    EX-NY TIMES EDITOR SAYS STAFFERS WERE WORRIED ‘LENDING CREDENCE’ TO HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY WOULD HURT DEMS

    "Because Morrell, Brennan, Clapper, and the other signatories were supposedly ‘nonpartisan’ national security and intelligence experts, their public statement was a campaign contribution of substantial value to the respondents, who solicited the ‘Letter of 51’ from them for the express purpose of influencing the 2020 presidential election," the AFL lawsuit says. "Yet, the respondents failed to report the contribution and to identify the individuals who made it."

    The lawsuit — like the original FEC complaint — quotes an email at the time among the intelligence experts, saying, "[W]e think Trump will attack Biden on the issue at this week’s debate and we want to offer perspectives on this from Russia watchers and other seasoned experts." Another said they wanted to give Biden "a talking point to use in response" if Trump brings up the laptop. 

    In an October 22, 2020 presidential debate, Biden referred to the 51 intelligence officials’ letter during a presidential debate. The lawsuit also notes that it was used for an immense amount of media coverage. 

    2020 DEBATE CLAIMS ARE COMING BACK TO HAUNT BIDEN AS GOP PROBES INTO HUNTER SWIRL: 'LIE, DENY, COUNTER ACCUSE'

    The Biden campaign resources were used to solicit the letter, and the coordination that produced the letter became something of significant value to the Biden campaign. Failure to report something of value violates the Federal Election Campaign Act that the FEC is required to enforce, the lawsuit says. 

    "The proper administration of the act includes ensuring that all disclosure reports are correctly and timely filed with the commission," the complaint to the D.C. District Court says. 

    Under the Federal Election Campaign Act, if the FEC fails to act on a complaint within 120 days, a complainant can take the case to court. A court could determine that failure to act is contrary to the law and direct the commission to conform to the law within 30 days. 

    The lawsuit references a survey that found almost four of five Americans who followed the Hunter Biden laptop scandal thought that honest news coverage would have changed the outcome of the election. The survey by Technometric Institute of Policy and Politics was released in August 2022.

    I’m just curious if you think critically at all.  Think about this suit.  A group of retired federal employees write what is essentially an opinion piece.  Do you really think a federal court or the FEC is going to call this an “in kind donation”?  No.  If they were,to do so, every single opinion, talk show and the entire evening lineup of Fox News would be the same. This is just another silly PR lawsuit.  

    But please, show me you think about things before you post them. Formulate a counter-argument.

    I mean we should at least get a meme or a faux news article with no commentary, perhaps one that says how Comer Pyle is going to have the Bite My Pillow guy testify to the explosive newly discovered evidence that will blow us all away and lead to indictments of, well, someone, somewhere, someday.

    Look who makes an appearance? Speaking of the devil, Ruddy Ghouliani.

    “To call this hearing a clown show would be an insult to hardworking clowns everywhere. There is nothing entertaining about watching Comer, Jordan, and MAGA Republicans make fools of themselves week after week, month after month, while they ignore the real concerns of the American people. Impeachment is dead, and it’s time to move on,” he said.
