We’ll investigate Bidens’ shady business dealings when the GOP takes the house
In October 2020, just 20 days before the controversial presidential election, a startling article appeared in the New York Post detailing the shady business dealings and influence peddling of Joe Biden’s family members, particularly his son. Hunter.
Legacy media, which for four years had sensationalized countless conspiracy theories about President Donald Trump and his family, faced a choice: report Biden’s allegations or circle the wagons of the Bidens’ defense as the elections approached. elections. They chose the latter.
NPR told its audience, « We don’t want to waste our time on stories that aren’t really stories. »
Big Tech has joined us. Twitter blocked users from posting links to the few reports on Hunter Biden’s laptop; he even locked the Post’s account for refusing to remove the article. Facebook manipulated algorithms to limit the spread of laptop stories. One of the largest newspapers in the country has been effectively shut out of the digital public square.
Soon 51 former intelligence officers circulated an open letter questioning the authenticity of the information. They claimed without evidence that the Post article had all the classic hallmarks of a Russian disinformation operation. These signatories abused the imprimatur of their former titles to discredit evidence that raised serious questions about the access granted to Joe Biden during his final term.
The Biden campaign then used Big Tech censorship and the intelligence operatives’ letter to dismiss the allegations out of hand and slander others as peddlers of misinformation. In short, these entities colluded to hide details about the Post article just as Americans were deciding on the presidential election.
Almost two years later, most of the media has quietly acknowledged the authenticity of the article.
Investigations by congressional Republicans to date have found that members of the Biden family were using their relationships with Joe to enrich themselves through expectations of access and promises about what a Biden administration could do.
We have continued these discussions despite the Democrats’ refusal to cooperate. We made nearly 100 requests for information related to Biden family schemes. Many, including all requests made to the Biden administration, have been ignored. But with the help of witnesses who have documents about their dealings with the Biden family, some answers become clear.
First, Joe Biden’s family members took advantage of foreign regions where he had influence as vice president. Hunter Biden served on the board of a Ukrainian company in an industry in which he had no experience. His only qualification was that his father directed American policy in Ukraine.
Second, Bidens used his connections with Joe to promise access to the highest levels of government. While Joe was vice president, Hunter promised Mexican business partners access to his father, and Joe Biden agreed by hosting them at the vice presidential residence and the White House.
Third, these practices continued during Joe Biden’s four-year government hiatus. In 2018, as the 2020 campaign approached, Hunter Biden bragged privately: « If I say it’s important to me, then it’s [Joe] will work to make it part of its platform. Members of the Biden family have increasingly targeted foreign companies, including several deals with the Chinese Communist Party.
Fourth, Bidens was paid hundreds of thousands — if not millions — despite doing no discernible work. Joe’s brother, James, bragged to his foreign and domestic business partners that Joe would become president and that they would reap the rewards in the form of benefits and support from the US government. US banks have reported questionable transactions involving James and Hunter Biden and filed more than 150 suspicious activity reports with the Treasury Department.
Finally, contrary to Joe Biden’s statement that he never told Hunter about his overseas business dealings, associates say he was fully aware of his family’s business dealings and influence peddling . There is evidence of a direct amount of money set aside for ‘the Big Guy’ – who witnesses identified as Joe Biden – from foreign nationals. This raises important questions about our national security and the role foreign nationals were allowed to play when he was vice president.
We have discovered some answers, but many questions remain. In November, the American people will decide whether they want to be told what information they are allowed to know by a complicit media, including who makes political decisions for this country and for whose interests. A Republican majority will pledge to uncover the facts that Democrats, big tech, and the legacy media have suppressed.
