From the Right



Here we are, with an election less than a year away

By John Kass, Tribune Content Agency on

With American unemployment numbers at a 50-year low, with people working and with money in their pockets, stubborn House Democrats rush forward on their path toward madness.

They insist on impeaching President Donald Trump, though they have no hope of securing a conviction in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Are House Democrats principled patriots fighting for the right against tough odds? Or are they cynics aided by media cheerleaders?

You're the only ones who can answer that. Because the only answer that counts is the one the American people -- Democrats and Republicans and independents -- will give on Election Day in November 2020.

Yet even with an election less than a year away, Democrats are in a rush to impeach Trump over his wrong-headed phone call to Ukraine. He linked military assistance and asked for an investigation into what happened there during the Obama administration, when Joe and Hunter Biden employed Chicago Way-style muscle in Ukraine.

Ultimately, Ukraine got the missiles it wanted. Ukraine didn't give Trump the investigation he sought.


When the Bidens were rolling in Ukraine, Joe was the Obama administration's point man there. Son Hunter was making $50,000 a month from Ukrainian gas company Burisma, which was being investigated by a Ukrainian prosecutor.

Joe threatened to kill a $1 billion U.S. loan guarantee unless the prosecutor was fired. Guess what? The prosecutor was fired. Joe Biden bragged about it all on video.

So, who has clean hands in Ukraine? Trump or the Democrats who defend Biden?

When you deal in Ukraine, just like when you deal in Chicago, you won't find many angels.
