"Security state agencies, particularly (but not only) the CIA, have played a leading role - arguably the leading role - in shaping domestic US political discourse since early 2017. They have had countless weapons to achieve this, from their role in TV newsrooms to covert leaks."

Is Jimmy Dore French for Walter Duranty?

Your rank McCarthyism is showing/smelling. Again.

The story posted at #13 is something of a revelation to me.   Careful reading of it shows that there is more evidence for the "republican conspiracy theory" than against it.    I am not at all confident that Risen is/was able to know Biden's intentions in Ukraine, and all the central facts of the matter are not in dispute.     I am starting to seriously doubt the Democrat's strategic sense.   Why impeach over this, when it so obviously allows a counterattack on Biden and a rehashing of the US role in the colour revolutions during Obama's terms?   Are there not better issues to try to impeach on?  Perhaps the Democrats are relying on a shared understanding with the Republicans that the true nature of the US role in the Ukraine should not be discussed publicly because they are all up to their necks in dirty laundry.

From the article at #13:

"When Joe Biden arrived in Ukraine in December 2015 to press for more aggressive anti-corruption efforts by the government, Hunter Biden’s role with Burisma made his father’s demands, however well-intentioned, appear politically awkward and hypocritical."

From a May 2019 article linked within article posted at #13:

https://theintercept.com/2019/05/10/rumors-joe-biden-scandal-ukraine-abs...

"There is no question that Biden did, during a visit to Kiev in late 2015, threaten to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees unless Shokin was dismissed. But the vice president, who was leading the Obama administration’s effort to fight corruption in Ukraine, did the country a favor by hastening Shokin’s departure, Kaleniuk said, since he had failed to properly investigate corrupt officials."

Did the country a favor!   Perhaps there are more favors to come.   And it's an old MSM trick to present the stated intentions of governments or politicians as obviously true.    Statements of intent are not evidence, and coming from politicians and governments, they are less than nothing.
