Live from Music Row Monday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed attorney Julie Strauss Levin to the newsmakers line to discuss her recent commentary at the Tennessee Star and the Biden family’s pattern of conflicts of interest.
Leahy: We are joined on our newsmaker line now by Julie Strauss Levin. Fellow Conservative activist, attorney, and a great writer who has delivered some of the very best commentaries on the Biden family scandal for the Tennessee Star. Good morning, Julie.
Levin: Good morning, Michael. It’s good to be with you.
Leahy: Well, look your commentaries have been so compelling. I’ve had several friends say look, this is perhaps the best summary of the problem we face with the Biden family. You and I were talking prior to the debate on Thursday. You had some issues with some points you want to make. We published your commentary at about midnight Thursday Friday and it’s one of our most popular commentaries ever. Tell us a little bit about why this is the October surprise Joe Biden just wants to go away.
Levin: Well first thank you for having me on I really appreciate it. You know Michael, to say this is a surprise when I was writing this it was a bit difficult even to come up with the right adjectives. We have a situation here where the Biden family and as everybody knows Joe Biden has been in government for 47 years. Eight of which was during the Obama-Biden administration.
We’re focusing on when he was vice president and then thereafter. My guess is there’s a lot even prior to that. But let’s just focus on when he was VP. If you remember and I talked about this in the article, but I do think it’s instructive because you know as Shakespeare said thou protesteth too much. That’s what’s going on with this man. In November of 2019, I believe it was. Peter Doocy had I asked Joe Biden when he was on the campaign trail as a member of Fox how many times have you spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings.
And Joe Biden got his anger up as he really wants to do when he’s on the defensive. And he said I have never done so. So as we all know, rule number one, never say never. Well, that’s just not reality. but he was so dogmatic about it. And of course, we’ve come to find out that’s not true. I’m going to fast forward a minute to the debates last Thursday night when he made a statement that was equally as indignant when he said and looked into the camera knowing all the time that millions of Americans are watching this last debate.
It’s so important because people for some strange reason have not made up their mind. There are some. And he said I have not taken a penny from a foreign source in my life. Emails completely contradict that. They really do. There’s a lot of hedging from the Adam Schiff’s and from the Schumer’s and from the policies of the world of the entire left. I don’t mean just mean Biden. But also in the media, they have been jumping ahead of this thing that these are Russian scandals.
Leahy: With no evidence to support that claim either.
Levin: There is zero evidence. And to the contrary, there is a very well written report. It’s about 60 or so pages I believe written by Ron Johnson’s Homeland Security Committee that contradicts that. Just yesterday Congressman Jordan was on Fox and he said he had his staff doing independent research on this wrong. We have the FBI saying this is not Russian disinformation because that’s been you know, just throw Russia at something in the Americas.
Leahy: Russia, Russia, Russia. That’s what all of them have been saying for four and a half years.
Levin: You’re right. That’s all I’ve been saying, and you know, they really insult the intelligence of the American people. So what do we have here? We have a situation where last September Joe Biden’s son Hunter went to a repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware where he dropped off a laptop and he signed a receipt. We know it’s his signature because it matches the signature on among other things.
The paternity lawsuit papers that he had going on with a woman. We will keep that issue to the side. He also left his other information. He never retrieved the laptop. And like many receipts when we all drop things off whether it’s at a try cleaner or a laptop repair shop it seizes title to the property if you leave it. So he leaves his laptop. The owner of the store has it for quite a bit of time.
Certainly past the 90 days. And at some point, we all know what happened with the impeachment. And so he knows that this is Biden’s laptop and Biden Junior’s laptop. And he at some point hands it over to the FBI because he opens it and sees that there is information in here that would be of interest to the government. So that’s what he does. The FBI has verified that this is Hunter’s laptop. The only ones who have not denied it Is the Biden family. Conclusively.
They haven’t denied it. As a matter of fact, it’s politics at its best because he has all the surrogates running out in front of Joe Biden as you said saying Russia, Russia, Russia. He has the Biden campaign very carefully dissecting a response to the contrary. There are two reporters who have actually done their job and asked questions. One of whom I think was over this past weekend. And the other one was the other week when one CBS reporter did and Biden snapped at him and said, there you go. You know, it’s a smear job.
Leahy: Yeah, from CBS. They do a lot of smear jobs on Joe Biden, right?
Levin: Exactly. Yeah. He had his candidate wrong. He thought he was talking to Donald Trump. The bottom line is that there are emails on this computer that very strongly shall we say and I’ll be lower case c conservative and what I say here that point out that Biden family, not just Hunter, but the Biden family over time has made millions of dollars using the Biden name. We certainly know that Hunter Biden made $83,000 a month sitting on a board in the Ukraine of a company known as Burisma. That name, if the media was actually doing its job would be a household name.
Leahy: And we know that he arranged for one of the executives with that group to meet with his father when he was sitting vice president, right?
Levin: That’s correct. So now if we, you know dial back to I never do this. I never did that. I never spoke to my son. Fast forward to an Air Force Two trip that VP Biden took to China and his son happens to be sitting on the flight. How long is this flight? I don’t know Michael.
Leahy: It’s a long time.
Levin: It’s a long time. It’s a long time to be sitting on the flight with your father and having no discussion whatsoever of why Hunter is on the plane with his father.
Leahy: Well, there’s a picture of Biden shaking hands with Jonathan Lee over in China on that trip apparently. He ended up being a business partner in an investment firm that Hunter Biden’s part of we do you believe that stock emitted by Ron Johnson. Then this Tony Bobulinski who is the CEO of Sino Hawk Holdings said, yeah, I met in person with Joe Biden in 2017 for an hour and we talked about these China deals. That’s it. You pointed that out in your article.
Levin: That’s right. And for all of those who say again, this is under the best defensive is an offense. Well, that’s after you know, the vice president was vice president. He’s a private citizen. He can do his thing. Well, first of all, we know for a fact that Hunter Biden actually started traveling to China after his father was elected Vice President. But before you know, he actually, you know went in in January of 2009. So this has been going back awhile.
Leahy: It’s a pattern and it seems to keep breaking. Julie Strauss Levin. Thanks for joining us. Please come back and give us more details about it. A great commentary on the Biden family and their conflicts of interest. Thanks for joining us, Julie.
Levin: Thank you. Take care.
