In a shocking display of desperation, the White House is begging journalists to help combat the impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden. The audacity and lack of faith in their own defense are staggering as they resort to manipulating the media, further undermining the credibility of the Biden administration.
White House spokesman Ian Sams sent out a memo to editorial leadership at U.S. news organizations, calling for the media to “ramp up its scrutiny of House Republicans for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies.” This plea reeks of political maneuvering, attempting to turn the media into a propaganda machine for the beleaguered president.
The memo insists that House Republicans haven’t found any incriminating evidence against the President. However, this claim blatantly disregards Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) announcement of an impeachment inquiry based on “serious and credible allegations into Biden’s conduct— a culture of corruption.”
McCarthy’s letter outlines the evidence gathered by GOP investigators, including bank records and testimonies. The impeachment effort is led by Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY), Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), and Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO). Their joint statement claims that Republicans have “uncovered an overwhelming amount of evidence showing Joe Biden lied to the American people about his knowledge and participation in his family’s influence peddling schemes.”
Despite these damning allegations, the White House has assembled a “war room” of lawyers and aides to combat the GOP-led investigations. Democrats in Congress rallied behind the president, with House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) insisting there’s no evidence of wrongdoing by Biden.
But the media seems all too willing to play along with the White House’s narrative. The New York Times stated that Republicans have found no evidence of financial wrongdoing or corruption by the president, but they have received enough information to warrant more investigation. This narrative is precisely what the White House wants, ignoring the substantial evidence presented by the GOP.
Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) highlighted this media bias, responding to a reporter’s claim that the “American people can’t see that. They think it’s political revenge,” by stating, “Because you don’t report on it.”
This scandal exposes the Biden administration’s desperation and their willingness to manipulate the media to protect their fragile position. As the impeachment inquiry unfolds, Americans deserve to hear the truth, not partisan spin. The media must resist becoming puppets of the White House and uphold their duty to report impartially on this critical moment in American politics.
