Dem Outrage About Presidential Promises to Foreign Leaders!

They voiced no concern over Obama's infamous promise to Russia's president.

Recall this infamous hot-mic assurance from Barack Obama to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that he would surrender NATO’s plans for anti-ballistic missile defense in Poland: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense … this can be solved, but it’s important for [incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin] to give me space. This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” The mainstream media treated it with little more than a shrug and moved on. After all, it was an election year and Obama was their preferred candidate. Never mind the fact that Obama was colluding about U.S. defense systems with the leader of one of our biggest geopolitical foes, Russia.

Fast-forward to Wednesday when The Washington Post reported that an intelligence officer filed a whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump alleging that he had made a “promise” to a foreign official that was “troubling.” Just who the foreign official was and what was promised is not known. However, it may be that the foreign official in question was Ukraine’s new president, Volodymyr Zelensky, with whom Trump had a phone conversation two and a half weeks prior to the whistleblower complaint.

Much of the mainstream media speculates that Trump was seeking to press Ukraine’s president into reinitiating a sidelined investigation into alleged illegal activity by Hunter Biden, son of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden. This speculation seemed to gain legitimacy after Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani commented on social media, “A President telling a Pres-elect of a well known corrupt country he better investigate corruption that affects US is doing his job. Maybe if Obama did that the Biden Family wouldn’t have bilked millions from Ukraine and billions from China; being covered up by a Corrupt Media.”

The Leftmedia contends that Trump may be in hot water because of a possible quid pro quo with a foreign government to help him dig up dirt on a political opponent. That’s a serious charge, but the truth is that even this accusation pales in comparison to Obama’s promise to Medvedev. It’s also nothing compared to Hillary Clinton’s hiring of Fusion GPS to fabricate dirt on Trump, which then served to launch the biggest political scandal in our nation’s history — the whole Trump/Russia collusion hoax and the attempted intelligence coup against a sitting president. And yet it will be treated by Democrats and the Leftmedia as a massive scandal.
