New conflict of interest for Senate Democrats in impeachment trial may trigger recusal requirement
A new, embarrassing conflict of interest issue for Senate Democrats emerged Sunday night, throwing a wrench in the middle of the impending impeachment trial and potentially triggering Senate recusal requirements.
According to Paul Sperry, a bestselling conservative author and political commentator, government watchdogs are “raising concerns Hunter Biden's political gifts to several Senate Dems...may transgress Senate ‘conflict of interest’ rules [and] possibly trigger recusal requirements during Senate impeachment voting”
The top Senate Democrats that have accepted political gifts from Hunter Biden include Senators Leahy, Menendez, Booker, Whitehouse, Cardin, and Cantwell.
In addition to this latest conflict of interest, several other Democrat Senators are currently moonlighting as presidential candidates against the very target of the Senate trial, President Donald Trump. This second, more obvious conflict of interest continues to be largely glossed over by the media.

Should all the sitting US Senators who received political donations from Hunter Biden recuse themselves from a Senate trial that's all about Hunter Biden?— PlayTheTrumpCard ⚡️ Text FIGHT to 88022 (@PlaysTrumpCard) December 23, 2019
What say you @CoryBooker @SenatorLeahy @SenatorCardin @SenStabenow @SenWhitehouse ?
I thought Hunter Biden claimed to be broke. How does he have money for political contributions? 🧐— Deplorable Isabella (@Isabell56589461) January 13, 2020
The same #democrat senators who begged #Ukraine to investigate #Trump or possibly lose bipartisan support for foreign aid are also taking gifts from #HunterBiden.— *✩∘•°꒒꒤ꋊꋬ ꇙꀘꌦ°•∘✩* (@Luna_sky97) January 13, 2020
