Candidates running for office often defend their opponents in an effort to seem fair. We saw this back and forth “goodwill” play out before the Iowa caucus in 2016 when Ted Cruz and Donald Trump defended each other regularly before the gloves came off. Now, Elizabeth Warren has gone after Facebook for not taking down a Trump campaign ad attacking the former Vice President for his role in pressuring Ukraine to fire the prosecutor investigating his son’s company.
Is this political goodwill and a launching pad for Warren to ramp up attacks on the social media giant, or is there more to the story?
“She’s less interested in protecting Biden and more interested in protecting herself and the DNC,” an aide to a Republican Senator said. “Their ties to Ukrainian corruption run deep. The last thing Warren wants is to be the nominee for a party that’s embroiled in the Obama administration’s nasty dealings with the previous Ukrainian government.”
The more we learn about the ties between Ukraine and the Democratic Party, the clearer the picture is becoming. We already heard the bombshell audio from the current anti-corruption chief in Ukraine saying that he helped Hillary Clinton in 2016. Could the whole Russia investigation have been a smokescreen to prevent the real collusion that took place from seeing the light of day?
Democrats already have progressive legacy media in their back pockets. Even The Hill article referenced above goes to great links to say there’s no evidence (other than Biden’s own words) that he pressured Ukraine for his son’s benefit. As they and the rest of mainstream media have been saying, it was just an administration policy to pressure Ukraine to drop the prosecutor because, “The Obama administration repeatedly said it sought to oust the prosecutor because of concerns he was not doing enough to root out corruption.”
Right. When was the last time the White House took such an interest in another country’s prosecutor doing an insufficient job? If you buy that story, there’s likely nothing that would convince you of wrongdoing by Democrats.
Unlike legacy media, social media is not necessarily under the Democrats’ control. Sure, big tech companies favor Democrats generally, but as their user base is responsible for spreading stories among their own connections, Democrats have no control over stories that go “viral.” Is this why Warren is so interested in keeping the Biden-Ukraine story from spreading on Facebook?
As an owner of a conservative news aggregator told our EIC earlier, Warren knows “Biden is just the tip of the iceberg.”
From the Russian hoax to the fake impeachment inquiry, Democrats have been radically intent on keeping attention away from their own dealings in Ukraine. Collusion is real, and Democrats are desperate to keep us from learning more about it.
