Ben Rhodes: Biden "Having Phone Calls" With Foreign Leaders About "The Agenda They're Going To Pursue"

Quote:
Former Obama administration official Ben Rhodes said the Trump administration is in for a "rude awakening" while talking about the incoming Biden administration on MSNBC Monday.

"The center of political gravity in this country and the world is shifting to Joe Biden," Rhodes declared. "Foreign leaders are already having phone calls with Joe Biden, talking about the agenda they're going to pursue on January 20th. If that reality hasn't sunk in yet for some people in the White House, it will sink in when they have to leave on January 20th. And they're going to be in for a rude awakening here."
From a personal standpoint, I really don't care...He wants to talk, so what...

But I DISTINCTLY REMEMBER when the Trump Campaign was talking to foreign leaders before Trump being inaugurated, the Left went NUTS(!!!) and demanded the Logan Act be enforced and people thrown in jail...

Did Michael Flynn just admit to violating the Logan Act? And what is the Logan Act?

Quote:
The Logan Act is a centuries-old law aimed at keeping private citizens out of foreign affairs. Flynn was a private citizen in December of 2016, and in Friday's guilty plea, he basically admitted he urged the Russian ambassador not to retaliate after President Obama announced sanctions punishing Russia for meddling in the presidential election. Authorities indicated he was acting at the urging of other senior Trump transition officials, suggesting they could have violated it too.

That sure sounds like it's possible Flynn or other Trump officials was trying to meddle in foreign affairs before he was a representative for the government, said Stephen Vladeck, a law professor at the University of Texas. It's possible the special counsel could whack Flynn or other campaign officials with this charge to get them to cooperate in the investigation.
Isn't Biden a PRIVATE CITIZEN right now???...

Aren't phone calls to "talking about the agenda they're going to pursue on January 20th" the same thing as "trying to meddle in foreign affairs before he was a representative for the government" according to the Left's own logic???...

Of course...But the Left will NEVER hold themselves to the same standard they do for anyone else...Free Passes all around...

You mean to say that Biden may be talking to Putin!?!?!?!


Obviously those "foreign leaders" Biden is "illegally" talking with swayed the election.

2-3 years of investigation is required to deal with this.
i'm sure there will be a series of "bombshell" reports that will prove ...well Nothing.

but it still should be investigated. Because we won't know everything until we get the official REPORT.

I don't believe that anyone is calling for investigations. I believe the Redd was just pointing out the blatant hypocrisy of the left.

What you ugly people don't understand is Biden talks, Trump conspires with foreign governments.

These talks with foreign governments Biden is doing are known in business as investor relations. The Chinese have over $1.5 billion invested with the Biden crime family it's only prudent for him to reassure them his promises of "holding them accountable" was nothing more than saying what you needed to get elected. New international clients need to be informed of the Biden's price list for favors, no doubt raised to a level showing appropriate respect for the office of POTUS.

Check those memory banks, redd.
Flynn commiserated with the commie bustards during the campaign, not after Trump was called as the winner.

Blatantly FALSE...

Read the damn source in the OP...It SPECIFICALLY says the accusations were because "Flynn was a private citizen in December of 2016"...That's OVER A MONTH after the election...

Biden is talking to foreign leaders in NOVEMBER...Not even 9 DAYS after the election...So he's actually "meddling" EARLIER than the accusations that were leveled against Flynn...

Do you ever even bother to check on things before you post something so utterly stupid? Or are you just hitting the bottle hard again?

Absolutely correct!

Flynn's call with Kislyak happened on December 29th.

On January 5th, the readout of the call (supplied by Clapper who had already briefed Obama) was shared in a meeting attended by Obama, Biden, Comey, Sally Yates and Susan Rice.

In that meeting Biden (who had already requested an unmasking of Flynn that day) suggested using the Logan Act to prosecute Flynn for the December 29th call.

The investigation into Flynn (Operation Razor) was being closed on Jan 4th and would have been hadn't Strozk called the Agent in Charge and asked him to keep it open (in preparation of the set-up occuring the next day in the Oval Office).

Flynn is a traitor, who was working as a paid agent for Turkey WHILE he was the National Security Advisor.

Flynn is a traitor, who was undermining President Obama's response to the Russian attack on our election's.


Everything else you fascist, bad faith having, lying, sycophants wanna say about it doesn't erase those two facts.

As national security advisor Flynn had the experience and was in a position to expose the Obama administration's spying on the Trump campaign. He had to be dealt with to keep Obama's KGB style campaign of political sabotage under cover. Perverting Federal law enforcement into a political weapon and smearing a 30 year veteran of the armed forces as a traitor is the Democrat way.
