Three words that haunted Donald Trump during his presidency...
Quid pro quo.
Joe Biden may have just walked into a trap that will have him atop the GOP impeachment list for something that clearly seems to be a quid pro quo case.
Over the last several days, Biden’s communications with Saudi Arabia have dominated headlines.
The media seems to be missing that this appears to be a clear quid pro quo offer from Joe Biden.
Initially, that was not the case, but the fact that Joe Biden is now threatening sanctions against Saudi Arabia paired with the language used in trying to get an extension on the OPEC cutback gives me that slam dunk feeling.
Biden had asked Saudi Arabia to delay the production reduction until after the November election.
That is clearly so gas prices would not rise, something that would surely hurt Democrats at the polls.
Federalist Editor-in-Chief Mollie Hemingway made the same link that Democrats used when Trump was president for delaying aid in the hopes of getting the goods on Hunter Biden.
Hemingway stated, “By the standards media and other Democrats set with their Ukraine impeachment, this is grounds for IMMEDIATE impeachment and conviction.”

Radio host Hugh Hewitt agreed...
Hadn’t thought of this b/c the whole “quid pro quo” nonsense was absurd from the start. But perhaps some “brave patriot”w/i NSC will leak the details of the Biden attempt to politicize national security? Unlike Zelensky denying attempt, Saudis are confirming the attempt. https://t.co/QayXuSCg7F

Ben Shapiro also chimed in...
This looks an awful lot like the president of the United States threatening to remove weaponry from a purported ally unless that ally performs actions that help that president politically in advance of an election. Wasn't Trump impeached for that?

The problem is that the mainstream media is not buying into this yet.
All we need is one, and if we get that one, the dominoes start to fall.
