Another day, another fiasco with Hunter Biden.
This time, a recent report reveals that Hunter and his father shared assets, and that sharing of assets can be a tad problematic when Hunter remains under ongoing investigation for a variety of suspect behaviors, including money laundering.
And, if his illegitimate assets are linked to his father’s, that would theoretically create quite the problem, as noted by a former federal prosecutor.
“Whatever transaction you’re looking at, if there’s a connection to a family member or a friend, sure the answer is yes [they would be investigated] … Obviously, if you’re talking about the president of the United States, you’d better have a pretty damn good reason to talk to that person.” [Source: Newsmax]
Obviously, the president has been a fiasco before he even ascended to the Oval Office, especially given Hunter’s addition to foreign influence peddling.
And, as much as one would like to see a real investigation of the nature of Biden and Hunter’s shared assets, the media will never permit that to happen.
And if Biden can get away with literally handing over nearly $90B worth of weapons to terrorists on the global stage, one can only imagine what else he’s been able to get away with over the years.
Not to mention his son.
In truth, had Hunter been the son of Trump, CNN would probably do nothing but talk about Hunter Biden, with periodic breaks to rage away about the status of Trump’s Twitter account, of course.
Hunter, who apparently wouldn’t know a quieter lifestyle if it bit him in the bank account, has decided that holding a celebrity-fueled art show in one of the least cultured cities in the world, Los Angeles, would be a great way to ensure that corruption rumors don’t continue to swirl around his father.
Even Walter Shaub, the former “ethics czar” of the Obama administration (of all people), thinks that Hunter is taking a rather brazen approach to his standard influence peddling.
“The idea that they’re going to flag any overly priced offers — well, this is art that hasn’t even been juried into a community art sale …
How are they going to decide what’s unreasonable when they’ve already priced it in the range of $75,000 to $500,000 for a first outing? This is just preposterous and very disappointing … It’s an industry that’s notorious for money laundering. There’s no standards in that industry.” [Source: Newsmax]
There’s no standards with the White House Press Secretary either, as she apparently thinks it’s just fine for Hunter to shamelessly peddle influence to the highest (likely foreign) bidder.
Just consider Ms. Psaki’s rather flippant reply below, especially when contrasted with that of Obama’s ethics chief.
“We still do not know and will not know who purchases any paintings … The president remains proud of his son.” [Source: Newsmax]
Biden really needs to stop being so “proud” of his son, particularly in some of the worst contexts imaginable.
Just consider Biden’s response to the horrific contents of one of Hunter’s numerous stolen laptops, with this comment specific to the story buried during the 2020 election cycle.
“[Biden] is deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger.” [Source: The New York Post]
Only a liberal can claim that the truth is a “vicious personal attack,” whereas perhaps only Biden can be crazed enough to claim he is “proud” of such an insidious truth.
Especially when that truth involves the inconvenient fact that Mr. Hunter Biden profited to the tune of at least $50,000 per month by serving on the board of a company that he does not even understand, given his utter absence of inexperience in the energy industry.
Not to mention his inability to speak Ukrainian.
However, he sure had prime time access to the Oval Office, courtesy of the “Big Guy” serving as Obama’s then-Vice President, so it appears that Hunter had other advantages to offer Burisma.
Such as the ability to sic his father on a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma’s undoubtedly shady dealings.
Remember Biden’s notorious bragging (captured on video)? Because The Federalist does.
“Joe Biden was so proud of his role in the prosecutor’s removal from investigating the company paying his son $50,000 per month merely to serve on its board that he actually bragged about it in a 2018 speech at an event for the publication Foreign Affairs.
In this speech, Biden boasts his threat to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loans from Ukraine if they did not agree to fire the prosecutor who happened to be investigating the company giving his son a cushy sinecure. The prosecutor was fired, and the investigation was dropped six months later.” [Source: The Federalist]
And that same Biden became President of the United States, in spite of this stunning revelation. Taped on video, no less.
And if you’re wondering why Biden has yet to be impeached for something like that, it’s because Trump was already accused and impeached over exactly what Biden did (needless to say, Trump triumphed in that witch hunt as well).
Remember that big bad phone call Trump supposedly had?
Apparently, that phone call was far worse than threatening to withhold $1B in aid from the Ukraine, which is precisely what Biden did until the nation stopped breathing down the neck of Hunter’s piggy bank …
Either that, or Impeachment 1.0 was nothing but a smoke screen to deflect from the real criminal …
