[Breitbart] Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) told reporters during a break in the Senate trial of President Donald Trump on Thursday that several of the House Democrat impeachment managers had voted against bills providing "lethal aid" to Ukraine.
Democrats have accused Trump of abandoning Ukraine by holding aid for several weeks over the summer of 2019. Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) even accused the president, falsely, of causing the deaths of Ukrainian soldiers.
In fact, Trump had previously sent Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine, unlike President Barack Obama, who had only provided non-lethal aid.
Moreover, Ukraine did not even know about the hold on the aid until it was reported in the media several weeks later. And witnesses in the House of Representatives impeachment inquiry testified that the hold did not affect the Javelins.
Ernst made it clear she was irritated with what she portrayed as hypocrisy by the Democrats.
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), she said, voted against the most recent National Defense Authorization Act, "which included lethal aid to Ukraine." Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Hakeem Jeffreys (D-NY), and Nadler (D-NY) voted against the last one, which also included such spending.
[NYPOST] Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney for President Trump, threatened Thursday to go public with information that would expose corruption by 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden ...Failed seeker of the Democratic presidential nomination on multiple occasions, vice president under Barack Obama, giving it a last try in his dotage for 2020... "Everything I tried to tell the press last March is now coming out, and more. I will now start to reveal the evidence directly to you, the People," the former New York mayor tweeted. "The Biden Family Enterprise made millions by selling public office. Then when Joe was Obama’s Point Man, they ALL made millions."

[pjmedia] Democrats in Connecticut's State Senate have proposed creating and funding a new department within the state police focused specifically on "combating hate crimes and violent right-wing extremism."
Not all violent extremism, just right-wing extremism. Antifa, the radical left-wing anarchist group, which has said that "violence is necessary" for their activism, would apparently still have free reign in the state.
"Unfortunately, people who entertain hateful beliefs ... are protected as long as [those beliefs] don't result in hate-crime actions. That's what we're talking about," said Senate President Pro Tem Martin Looney."We want to be more aggressive in enforcing our laws and identifying likely sources of potential domestic terrorism acts against religious institutions and ethnic institutions." Regardless of the Senate President's name, this is NOT the Bee.
