Senate Dems Panic – Demand Pompeo Recuse Himself From Ukraine Matters After Lindsey Graham Requests Biden-Poroshenko Transcripts From State Dept

Mike Pompeo

Senate Democrats panicked after Lindsey Graham began the process for a Senate impeachment trial and requested full transcripts of three phone calls between Joe Biden and former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham on Thursday sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo demanding the transcripts and Senate Democrats are now screeching for Pompeo to recuse himself from Trump-Ukraine matters.

The Democrats want an impeachment trial in the Senate, they’re going to get what they deserve.

“The only legitimate option is for you to recuse and to delegate the Department’s response to the Trump-Ukraine scandal to a senior career Department official,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Democrats demanded of Pompeo.

In other words, the Senate Dems are panicking and want a Deep State bureaucrat to take over in order to protect the Biden crime family.

The Senate Dems said Pompeo has a “profound conflict” and must recuse himself.

Lindsey Graham said that the three phone calls made by Joe Biden were all made around the time Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor probing Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings, was fired.

Joe Biden’s drug addict son Hunter was sitting on the board of Burisma Holdings and being paid by some accounts over $200,000 a month even though he had zero experience in the field.

Then-Vice President Joe Biden, who was tasked to oversee US dealings with Ukraine, threatened to withhold over $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine unless they fired Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma and Hunter.

In a 2018 speech to the Council on Foreign Relations, Joe Biden bragged on video about getting Viktor Shokin fired and admitted he threatened to withhold over $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine unless they fired Mr. Shokin.

“Well son of a bitch, he was fired,” Biden bragged in 2018.

“I want to know are there any transcripts or readouts of the phone calls between the vice president and the president of the Ukraine in February [2016] after the raid on the gas company president’s house,” Graham said to Fox News host Sean Hannity. “After this raid, Hunter Biden kicks in. Hunter Biden’s business partner meets with John Kerry, and Vice President Biden on three occasions makes a phone call to the president of Ukraine and goes over there in March and they fire the guy, and this is the same man that the ambassador wanted investigated in 2015.”

President Trump on Friday morning said during an hour-long interview with Fox & Friends that he is ready for an impeachment trial and wants Schiff called in to testify.
