(Republican Insider) – A new report from the folks at WND has revealed that while the scandals of Joe Biden’s youngest son, Hunter Biden, have been a thorn in the side of his family, including his dear old dad, it seems there’s some concern popping up that they might also be about to hit Attorney General Merrick Garland as well.
Why is that?
Because Garland pledged “to protect the Justice Department from such conflicts and to avoid even the appearances of political influence,” according to a new column from popular legal commentator Jonathan Turley.
However, now conflicts are coming from every direction, with a federal investigation of what might be criminal behavior on the part of Hunter Biden and Joe Biden’s continued insistence that his son did nothing wrong.
“The Washington Examiner now has explained that Ron Klain, Joe Biden’s chief of staff, told ABC that the senior Biden is confident his son didn’t break any law,” the report went on to say.
“Of course the president is confident that his son didn’t break the law,” Klain proclaimed. “But most importantly, as I said, that’s a matter that’s going to be decided by the Justice Department, by the legal process. It’s something that no one at the White House has involvement in.”
The report then said, “Klain was asked if Biden is confident that his family didn’t cross any ethical lines when receiving millions of dollars from Chinese businessmen.”
“The president is confident that his family did the right thing,” Klain stated. “But again, I just want to be really clear — these are actions by Hunter and his [Joe Biden’s] brother. They’re private matters. They don’t involve the president. And they certainly are something that no one at the White House is involved in.”
WND then reported, “Earlier, it was White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield who was on Hunter Biden’s defense team, explaining, in response to published reports from the Washington Post that Hunter Biden took him millions of dollars, from the Chinese, for the family business, that, Joe Biden believed his son had not made any money in China.”
“We absolutely stand by the president’s comment, and I would point you to the reporting on this, which referenced statements that we made at the time that we gave to the Washington Post who worked on this story,” Bedingfield then stated. That was “Despite clear evidence that Hunter Biden had received millions from Chinese businessmen,” the Examiner went on to confirm.
The Washington Post confirmed just last week that the details were that the Chinese Communist Party-linked CEFC energy company “paid $4.8 million to entities controlled by” both Hunter Biden and James Biden.
Both Sen. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson had already concluded in their own investigation into the matter that they discovered “potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals.”
However, Turley noted the probe has now expanded beyond the impact these scandals are having on the Biden family.
“It is clear that the president ‘absolutely’ stands by his son and that the media absolutely stands by the president. The question is whether Garland will stand by justice and appoint a special counsel,” he said.
He then explained, “Garland pledged to protect the Justice Department from such conflicts and to avoid even the appearance of political influence. He now has a president stating that alleged wrongdoing by his son is ‘absolutely’ untrue, including dealings possibly impacting the president personally and financially. If Garland declines to appoint a special counsel, he will absolutely fail on his pledge.”
Turley then concluded that the claims concerning Hunter Biden doing “nothing” that was “unethical” “appear to be demonstrably false.”
Which he then pointed out makes the current position held by Garland, along with a lot of the mainstream media, “untenable.”
“For the media, the ongoing investigation of Hunter Biden by U.S. Attorney David Weiss in Delaware has presented a growing danger of self-indictment over its prior coverage (or noncoverage). Weiss has called a long line of witnesses before a grand jury, and there is growing expectation of criminal charges against Hunter Biden,” he stated.
“Thus, The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN and other media faced the embarrassing prospect of an indictment based on a story they previously suggested was either a nonstory or Russian disinformation. Suddenly, in recent days, they all rushed to declare the story legitimate, 18 months after the New York Post reported it in October 2020,” he said.
Just before the 2020 presidential election, both legacy and social media companies were working very hard to slap tape on the mouths of anyone who dared to report the story, claiming the whole thing was “Russian disinformation.”
Heck, there were dozens of former intel officials for the nation who joined together in a letter that made the same unsubstantiated claim.
“Polling by the Media Research Center reported that censorship could have changed the result of the 2020 election, as enough people said they would have withheld their support for Joe Biden had they known about the scandal to impact the vote totals,” the WND report said. “Now, Turley reports, there’s a brand new narrative… ‘None of this implicates President Biden,'” the report continued.
But there are questions about that too, based on the documentation that was discovered on the laptop computer that Hunter Biden left abandoned at the repair shop.
“Hundreds of emails appear to detail a multimillion-dollar influence-peddling enterprise by the Biden family, including Hunter Biden and his uncle James Biden,” Turley said. “Influence peddling has long been the way Washington’s elite enriches itself. This common source of political corruption involves the relatives of powerful government figures who shake down corporations or countries for access and influence.”
He added, “The Bidens would seem to be standouts in this common practice, engaging in a virtual family business. James Biden has been accused of marketing his connection to his brother. And in the emails discovered on his abandoned laptop, Hunter Biden practically sold timeshares of his father by dangling meetings and dinners for investors.”
Turley then noted that emails even talked about how to protect Joe Biden by not mentioning him directly but referring to him as the “Big Guy.”
This is the same “Big Guy” who is designated for receiving a 10 percent cut in one of the deals with Chinese interests.
“And there’s more evidence, Turley pointed out. One of Hunter Biden’s partners boasted of meeting with Joe Biden over the deals, Joe Biden took Hunter Biden to China with him on Air Force Two shortly before Hunter Biden confirmed a huge business deal with Chinese interests and there are emails to Hunter Biden thanking him for meetings with Joe Biden,” the report said.
“It is important to note that when these foreign interests were clamoring to give Hunter Biden millions of dollars, he was, by his own admission, a hopeless addict. In his 2021 memoir, Hunter Biden admits he was ‘drinking a quart of vodka a day’ and ‘smoking crack around the clock,’ up until his father’s 2020 presidential campaign began. So why would Russian, Chinese and other foreign figures give Hunter Biden all of this money, if not to influence his father?” Turley continued.
“Hunter Biden had nothing to sell but influence. All President Biden had to do to facilitate such schemes was to be accessible — to allow his family to deliver face-to-face meetings and photo ops,” the report stated.
There are a lot of folks attempting to aid Hunter Biden and other members of the Biden family to try and cover up this scandal, but it seems like it’s about to blow up in their faces.
Let’s hope those involved are brought to justice and held accountable for what they have done.
