Let’s get right to the bottom line: Recent news raises serious questions as to whether Joe Biden broke the public’s trust, exploited his position as a public official, and financially enriched the Biden family significantly from foreign business partners in China, the Ukraine, and Russia.
Before we jump into what we now know, how about a little refresher on Biden’s statement last September to Fox’s Peter Doocy when he asked of Biden, “how many times have you spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?” Biden’s indignant response? “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.” Wow. Seems Joe didn’t get the memo, “never say never” because, in fact, Biden well knew about his son Hunter’s business dealings. Indeed, it seems Papa Biden wasn’t wading, he was actually knee deep, in Hunter’s business affairs and also may have had some of his own going on.
Fast forward from last September to weeks ago when we learned the following: Last year, Hunter Biden dropped off his laptop at a computer repair shop in Delaware, signed a receipt (appears to be the same signature Hunter used in his paternity suit papers). He failed to retrieve the laptop, and the repair shop owner turned the laptop over to the FBI. The FBI confirmed the emails are Hunter’s, and Hunter’s attorney later asked for the laptop. Joe Biden himself has failed to unequivocally deny that the emails belong to his son. Well then, as we say in the law, res ipsa loquitur, the thing speaks for itself.
Of course, the media and Big Tech immediately censored this story because they want Biden to win the election. They also believe they are in charge. Their Soviet-style tactics to censor this scandal reinforces the need to expose the Biden family activities. And in the typical Biden style of “the best defense is an offense,” the one reporter who had the guts (or gall) to ask Biden about the subject was met with the following, “I have no response. It’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”
Thank goodness there are real journalists like Peter Schweizer, John Solomon and others who are diligently doing the investigative work the Democrat party media simply refuses to do.
How insulting (and pathetic) that the man who wants to be the next President of the United States, the leader of the free world, is taking cover and doesn’t think he has an obligation to answer serious questions the American people have about this scandal. And an obligation he does indeed have. So, here are just a few questions because as every day passes, more scandalous information is being revealed and it’s a bit challenging to keep up with the explosive developments.
Joe, the FBI has Hunter’s laptop with 40,000 emails on it. Some of the emails describe your son’s activities in China, Russia, and the Ukraine where he made millions of dollars from various business deals. You’re referenced in some emails about assisting him in meetings and there’s even one referring to you as “the big guy” who will get ten percent of a business deal worth millions. Another email mentions you being involved in a meeting with Burisma executives, the same Burisma that paid your son $83,000 a month to sit on its Board. Perhaps the following April 17, 2015 email of gratitude from Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi to your son will refresh your recollection. “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.” And then there was an earlier May 2014 Pozharskyi email seeking Hunter’s “advice on how you [Hunter] could use your influence” on behalf of Burisma.
The American people are very concerned that as a public official you and your family misused your office for financial and other personal enrichment. Joe, we need you to explain to the American people what has been going on with your son’s business deals and how the Biden family profited from them.
And, Joe, what about the email dating back to 2011 that shows that your son provided access to the White House to a group called the China Entrepreneur Club that included Chinese billionaires and Chinese Communist Party loyalists and that you met with them, too. Explain why it was okay for your son to give them access especially since your son was doing business in China.
Joe, speaking of China, your son Hunter accompanied you to China on Air Force Two in 2013. You met with your son’s Chinese partners, and ten days later, your son’s company signed a deal with the Bank of China and created a $1 billion investment fund.
You need to explain this to the public rather than simply dismiss this and pretend it is a smear. It is fact.
And yesterday, Joe, we learned about another bombshell email that is quite damning about the Biden family, to say the least. Specifically, whistleblower Tony Bobulinski, who was CEO of SinoHawk Holdings, an entity run by Biden family members in partnership with CEFC Energy, a Chinese energy company now defunct and bankrupt, spoke about a 2017 email that reveals the offer by the Chinese company to wire $10 million into an account, $5 million of which was a loan to “BD family … interest-free.” The “BD family” refers to the Biden family. Less than two weeks later, $5 million was wired from China to a Delaware LLC.
Earlier, Mr. Bobulinski said he had heard you say that you had never spoken to Hunter about his business. Mr. Bobulinski corrected that, Joe, saying, “I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business. They said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.”
And then yesterday evening Mr. Bobulinski revealed in a press conference that when discussing business, you were referred to as the “Chairman” or the “Big Guy,” and that you, Joe, were not to be mentioned in writing. The Bidens, Mr. Bobulinski said, were “paranoid” about keeping your name secret. Joe, according to Mr. Bobulinski, these were not Hunter Biden business deals. These were Biden family deals. The American people need you to come clean and explain this Biden family deal.
Joe, we have yet another question about your ethical responsibilities: Why didn’t you tell your son Hunter that because you were Vice President, he had to be very careful and take extra precautions to never, ever engage in any business with any foreign governments, foreign entities or otherwise do anything else that would have even the appearance of impropriety because that would compromise the office of the Vice Presidency and pose a huge national security risk to the United States of America? Why is it that you never said that to Hunter?
These questions only skim the surface about whether Joe Biden and others in the Biden family engaged in corruption. Indeed, this is clearly a scandal of huge proportions which, if true, involve potential violations of multiple laws, such as money laundering, tax evasion, failure to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA), and who knows what else. Only time will tell, but we don’t have a lot of time with the election looming in less than two weeks.
Joe, his family, and the entire Democrat world want this to just go away. They’re counting on winning and then they surely will make it go away. But Joe Biden has the obligation to level with the American people, and we have the right to know the truth and know it now.
