“Let me ask you something,” Cruz said to Kent. “Do you think Joe Biden holding a billion dollars hostage to force the Ukrainian government to fire the prosecutor that is investigating the corrupt oligarch who’s paying his son a million dollars a year, did getting that prosecutor fired benefit that oligarch?” And that’s when Shaheen went into cover-up mode. The New Hampshire Democrat used her position chairing Tuesday’s meeting to interrupt Cruz’s question and prevent Kent from answering immediately. The Cruz-Shaheen exchange was illuminating. Rather than dealing with the essence of Cruz’s question — a credible allegation of corruption involving the current president of the United States — she pretended it was making Kent “uncomfortable.” “Why are you afraid of him answering the question?” Cruz asked. “I’m not,” Shaheen said, her voice rising. “I just want to move on because …” She trailed off there as Cruz kept talking, but the point was made — even though Kent did answer with some boilerplate denial of the premise of Cruz’s question and a claim that Biden acted “in good faith to reduce corruption and help the Ukrainian people.” Because of course they did. But the real takeaway here is that Democrats want nothing better than to “move on” from questions about the Biden crime family and the corruption of the first son in countries that span the globe. They want nothing better than for their allies in the establishment media and Big Tech to ensure that Americans hear nothing incriminating about the doddering dishonesty of the man who now occupies the White House. They’ll be able to keep up the cover-up in the Senate, where Biden’s party remains the majority. [firefly_poll] But when Republicans take control of the House in January, there won’t be committee chairs like Shaheen to shut down questions that make Democrats nervous. There are going to be bulldogs like Kentucky’s James Cormer and Ohio’s Jim Jordan on the House Oversight Committee demanding answers to the kinds of questions Shaheen was trying to squelch. In a House finally rid of the control of Nancy Pelosi and her politburo, lawmakers with the drive to dive into the evident corruption of the Biden White House and the deep state control over the FBI are going to have the power to shine a light into the darkness that has overcome the United States government since January 2021. Whether they’ll use it remains to be seen. But the clash on Tuesday between Shaheen and Cruz is an example of how Democrats are willing to use their powers in Congress to shield the president from questions about the scandals surrounding him and his son. Come January, they won’t be able to do that in the House. And that has to make them very, very nervous. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
