President Trump has returned to the White House, and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham officially scheduled the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
On today’s Jay Sekulow Live, we discussed President Trump being discharged from Walter Reed hospital and returning to the White House yesterday, and the U.S. Senate officially scheduling confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett. We were also joined by ACLJ Senior Advisor for National Security and Foreign Policy Ric Grenell to talk about his latest blog on ACLJ.org and Corey DeAngelis from the Reason foundation to talk about school choice.
Watching Marine One land at the White House at dusk against the backdrop of the setting sun and seeing President Trump returning home was a truly inspiring scene. It was a good reminder of why it’s important to have the Commander-in-Chief at the White House. The President disembarked from Marine One and walked up the White House steps where he stopped to give the public an update on his health.
The President delivered a message of encouragement and hope to the American people in the face of the virus:
Don’t let it dominate. Don’t let it take over your lives. Don’t let that happen. We have the greatest country in the world. We’re going back. We’re going back to work. We’re going to be out front. As your leader, I had to do that. I knew there’s danger to it, but I had to do it. I stood out front. I led. Nobody that’s a leader would not do what I did.
We talked about this yesterday with our own Special Advisor Ric Grenell. We cannot let COVID-19 stop our economy and our lives.
He joined us on the show again today to talk about his latest blog which we briefly touched on yesterday. Ric expounded on the Hunter Biden matter:
This is really corruption at its core. We have a system in Washington that when you know somebody, that when your father is the Vice President, regardless of the fact if you have any experience in energy, you can get $50,000 a month in a consulting fee. Which is what Hunter Biden got, $50,000 a month, all because he was connected to the Vice President at the time, who also let’s remember, by his own admission Vice President Joe Biden was running foreign policy. He was the foreign policy expert. He was the former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. So in the Obama-Biden Administration, Vice President Joe Biden was the point person for foreign issues, for foreign policy issues. And so he’s in charge of trying to clean up the corruption in Ukraine which we know he made this famous comment on camera saying he was threatening the Ukrainians to do certain things otherwise they weren’t going to get money from the United States government. That’s a scandal right there.
The fact that Washington just dismisses this indicative of the fact that they like their rules and their rules mean that they get to break every other rule. And their rule in Washington, D.C. that Vice President Joe Biden always plays by, is that lobbyists, connections, and money flow. This is just the ways of Washington. So you think about somebody like Hunter Biden who had zero experience, zero experience, in energy issues getting $50,000 a month, plus this payment that you highlight, $3.5 million dollars from a woman who used to be, her husband was the mayor of Moscow; this is really a scandal in the making.
