The White House is in full panic mode over this week’s launch of an impeachment inquiry into Democrat President Joe Biden.
The evidence overwhelmingly shows that Biden and his son Hunter engaged in shady foreign deals and received millions of dollars for selling access to the White House.
However, instead of defending the indefensible, the White House is now begging media outlets to investigate the GOP.
Ian Sams, a spokesperson for the White House Counsel’s Office, wrote: “It’s time for the media to ramp up its scrutiny of House Republicans for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies.
“Covering impeachment as a process story – Republicans say X, but the White House says Y – is a disservice to the American public who relies on the independent press to hold those in power accountable.
“And in the modern media environment, where every day liars and hucksters peddle disinformation and lies everywhere from Facebook to Fox, process stories that fail to unpack the illegitimacy of the claims on which House Republicans are basing all their actions only serve to generate confusion, put false premises in people’s feeds, and obscure the truth,” he wrote.
The letter will be sent to executives helming the nation’s largest news organizations, including CNN, The New York Times, Fox News, the Associated Press, CBS News, and others.
However, it has already been established that the Bidens have been lying about Hunter’s business dealings and what the president knew about them.
They have changed their story too many times for an impartial observer to believe there is nothing there.
As Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) accurately noted during a Tuesday press briefing, the American people are only unaware of the evidence because the corporate media refuses to report it.
Legal scholar Jonathan Turley weighed in on the situation, saying:
“The White House is now actively involved in pushing narratives and denying factual allegations linked to the Biden corruption scandal.
“That could create Nixonian-type allegations of the abuse of office in the use of federal employees to counter impeachment efforts.
“Second, the letter was drafted by Ian Sams, a spokesperson for the White House Counsel’s Office.
“So White House lawyers are now enlisting the media in a counter media campaign against impeachment?
“The letter removes any pretense of separation between the Biden personal legal team and the White House Counsel’s office.
“Sams has been the most aggressive White House official in actively swatting down allegations of corruption as well as the President’s documents investigation.
“Third, the letter calls for the media to actively support the White House account.
“The draft of the letter is a call for what I have previously criticized as ‘advocacy journalism’ where reporters frame stories to advance their own viewpoints or values.”
