For the last three-plus years, Democrats and their allies in the liberal propaganda machine known as the mainstream media have been pushing the narrative that Donald Trump reached out to foreign leaders to help him win in 2016 and intends to do so in 2020. That, after all, was the basis of the whole sham impeachment effort.
On Wednesday, however, presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden admitted that he spoke to a foreign leader just two weeks ago.
“With regard to speaking to foreign leaders, I haven’t spoke with a foreign leader in the last — uh, probably two weeks,” he said in an interview with NBC.
When pressed for details, Biden clammed up.
“Who was the last foreign leader that you spoke with? Did you talk about coronavirus at all?” he was asked.
“I talked about how it affected their country but no — I – I’m not gonna — it was an off-the-record discussion that I had so I’m not gonna indicate who,” he said.

Needless to say, if a Republican had confessed to the same dereliction, the media would be screaming “Logan Act.” But as we saw during the impeachment circus, the Left has two sets of standards for judging “crimes” depending on the party affiliation of the actor. When Joe Biden as vice president pressured the president of Ukraine to fire a prosecutor investigating his son by threatening to withhold aid, no quid pro quo was to be found.
