GREGG JARRETT: It was appropriate for the president to ask Ukraine to look into any potentially corrupt acts by a high ranking public official, involving the Ukrainian company.
If Joe Biden's intent was to protect or benefit his son by threatening to withhold billion dollars, that's taxpayer money, in order to force the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who happened to be investigating the very company that his son, Hunter Biden, was working for -- this would constitute a violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. It would be extortion, bribery, honest services fraud, and Biden is not exempt from adhering to those laws just because he's running for president.
The president was exercising a proper use of executive power, not abusing it, and it's Nancy Pelosi and Shifty Schiff who are abusing the power of impeachment in this, their latest witch hunt.
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): First thing I'm thinking is how many people are spying on the president? How many people within the intelligence community have been weaponized to destroy the president, because they don't like the outcome of an election, and they don't like that they were beaten in the battle with the special counsel, because there was nothing there? So now, they're just going to leak and leak until they get the smoking gun leak that they want?
JARRETT: Yeah, and the FBI and the CIA and many in the intelligence community are all aligned to spy and lie in order to remove President Trump. And, you know, the -- the House knows that the president's telephone call was perfectly legal and acceptable and proper. It doesn't fall under the reading of high crimes and misdemeanors. So, what are they doing?
They are conjuring up this amorphous concept called abuse of power -- “Oh, it was an abuse of power." The problem with that -- it's not anywhere in the Constitution. There's no fixed meaning that everybody agrees upon.
