GOP Senator Drops 'Hypothetical' Bombshell During Barrett Hearing [Video]
Sen. Josh Hawley, Managed to squeeze the Hunter Biden scandal passed the news-blockade in a firey 'hypothetical' line of questioning he dropped on Supreme Court Nominee Judge Amy Barrett. The Missouri state Republican didn't initially bring up the conversation of foreign interference but, by God, he saw the opportunity to get the story out since it's not being covered by the mainstream media.
Hawley alluded to the Biden- Burisma accusations that have gone widely untouched by the media. Hawley also managed to sum up the potential foreign corruption scandal and Democrats' desperate efforts to muffle an investigation into the possible validity of those accusations.
Terming it as a series of “hypotheticals” while its reach was being limited by social media companies, Hawley said to Barrett, “Let me ask you about another set of questions, just briefly, that you had this morning. Senator Leahy asked you about the Foreign Emoluments clause, which is in Article 1, Section 9, Paragraph 8. He asked you whether it was best characterized as an anti-corruption clause —you might remember that— in terms of foreign influence and foreign interference, and then he referenced the president and various allegations about foreign influence.”
Hawley continued to Barrett, “Since he asked you about it, and since he asked about foreign influence in government, I think it’s only fair that I ask whether hypothetically speaking, just hypothetically, if there were, let’s say, a Vice-President of the United States who hypothetically had an adult son, who hypothetically worked for a foreign oligarch, who then sold access to his father, the Vice-President, and then his father then intervened in a case to make sure that that oligarch wasn’t prosecuted, hypothetically, would that constitute the kind of foreign corruption that the Constitution’s concerned about?”
Barrett responded, “I can’t answer hypotheticals.”
Hawley concluded, “Well, I thought you might say that, and I’m glad you don’t and won’t, because who knows? That case may come before you. But I think it’s a fair set of questions to ask.”

Now, obviously, Hawley knew that Judge Barrett wouldn't be able to answer those questions but that wasn't the point, was it?
Under normal circumstances, this would be a cheap shot at an inappropriate time but in this case, I think we can make an exception. After all, social media giants and the clowns at the mainstream media have decided to partner with the left in trying to prevent this accusation from being addressed before election day.
