    Legal Giant Says Biden Secretary of State’s ‘Lies’ on Hunter Could Mean Impeachment

    Published on

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s credibility erodes with each trickle of revelations about his roles during the presidency of Joe Biden.

    He denies involvement in a letter from former intelligence officials that implied the Hunter Biden laptop was part of a Russian disinformation campaign preceding the 2020 presidential election. After the election, he blatantly lied to a Senate committee regarding his own communications with Hunter Biden.

    Now, according to a legal industry titan, Blinken could be impeached for these falsehoods.

    In a commentary published on Tuesday by the New York Post, Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University and a fierce critic of the Biden administration, wrote that Blinken’s December 2020 statement to the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee skirted “criminal and impeachable” offenses.

    Blinken at the time categorically denied exchanging emails with Hunter Biden between 2015 and 2017 while serving as deputy secretary of state.

    During the interview, Blinken, who had previously served as Vice President Joe Biden’s national security counsel, acknowledged having lunch with Hunter once in his State Department office, but denied having telephone contact with him during those years.

    “Did you have any other means of correspondence with him — emails, texts?” he was asked, according to a transcript of the interview.

    “No,” Blinken replied, adding that his personal interactions with Hunter had been limited to accidental meetings at Joe Biden’s home in Delaware, at the vice presidential residence at the Naval Observatory, or in Joe Biden’s office.

    Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop reveals numerous email exchanges between the two men, including one in which Blinken wrote on his personal account to Hunter, “You will love this: after you left, Marjorie, the wonderful african american [sic] woman who sits in my outer office (and used to be Colin Powell’s assistant) said to me: ‘He sure is pleasant on the eyes.’ Tell you [sic] wife.”

    Not exactly the type of note one would send to a complete stranger.

    In a Sunday interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson dubbed Blinken’s denial that he had emailed Hunter Biden a “bold-faced” lie.

    “And now, because of more information that’s come out, we know that he lied bold-faced to Congress about never emailing Hunter Biden,” Johnson said.

    “My guess is he told a bunch of other lies that hopefully we’ll be able to bring him and his wife back in, tell them to preserve their records. You cannot trust Joe Biden. You cannot trust Hunter Biden. You can’t trust the Biden family. You can’t trust so many of the people that they have surrounded themselves with.”

    Turley, at least in regards to Antony Blinken, appears to concur.

    In the Post article, he mocked Blinken’s claim that he had nothing to do with coordinating a letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials in October 2020 claiming that the Hunter Biden laptop reported by the Post bore the “earmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign.”

    Fox News reported in April that former Deputy CIA Director Mike Morrell, one of the letter’s signatories, told the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees that Blinken was the “inspiration” for the letter and that the aim of the letter was to elect Joe Biden as president.

    Monday on Fox News, Blinken denied having solicited the letter. He stated that, as secretary of state, he does not engage in politics, adding, “But with regard to that letter, I didn’t conceive of it, request it, or solicit it. And I believe the testimony that former CIA deputy director Mike Morrell provided verifies that.”

    It is difficult to see how Morrell’s claim that Blinken was the “inspiration” for the letter supports Blinken’s claim that it was not his idea, that he neither requested nor solicited it, but that’s why administrations have attorneys.

    (It is important to note that Blinken was not under oath during the interview. Morrell was at the time he addressed congressional committees.)

    Turley, for his part, mocked Blinken’s statement in the very first sentence of his column in the New York Post: “Secretary of State Antony Blinken is claiming the political version of the immaculate conception.”
