Joe Biden, Adam Schiff, Hillary Clinton and the mass media seem set to be steamrollered by Attorney General Bill Barr using a Treaty none of them is prepared to even acknowledge exists.
“The Treaty Between the United States of America and Ukraine on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters” (Treaty) – was ratified by the Senate on 18 October 2000.
In transmitting the Treaty to the Senate for approval then President Bill Clinton wrote:
Schiff is either ignorant of—or is seeking to deliberately keep the public uniformed
“The Treaty is self-executing. It provides for a broad range of cooperation in criminal matters. Mutual assistance available under the Treaty includes: taking of testimony or statements of persons; providing documents, records, and articles of evidence; serving documents; locating or identifying persons; transferring persons in custody for testimony or other purposes; executing requests for searches and seizures; assisting in proceedings related to restraint, confiscation, forfeiture of assets, restitution, and collection of fines; and any other form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the requested state”
Article 2 provides for the establishment of Central Authorities and defines Central Authorities for purposes of the Treaty. For the United States, the Central Authority is
the Attorney General or a person designated by the Attorney General.
Strangely Congress Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has seemingly not mentioned this Treaty once during his blanket exposure to the mass media or at the highly-damaging public hearings of his Committee. Schiff is either ignorant of—or is seeking to deliberately keep the public uniformed of—its existence. Someone in the mass media should ask him to explain.
The mass media continues to mislead and deceive
Remarkably, the whistleblower—a member of the intelligence community—has not considered the Treaty in his complaint.
Neither did the Inspector General before determining that the complaint was “credible”
Senator Biden seems apparently unaware of the Treaty he helped ratify. Memory loss is a barrier for someone seeking to become President.
The mass media continues to mislead and deceive.
CNN leads the charge with this analysis by Chris Cillizza—parroted by so many others:
“As far as I can tell, the whistleblower very accurately described what Trump did. The President a) raised the issue of corruption by the Bidens (although no evidence of said corruption by Joe or Hunter Biden exists) …
No evidence of Biden corruption?
How about this public admission by Joe Biden?
I remember going over and convincing our team, others, to convince that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.
So they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said—I said, call him. (Laughter.) I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a b-tch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
Barr will eventually uncover the scandals plaguing the Democrats since 2016.
The culprits will get their just deserts as Ukraine provides the information Barr is seeking.
