Hunter Biden


In the video above, Ryan Grim states that he hears from people, when the topic of Hunter Biden is raised,  ''What about Donald Trump Jr. Hunter Biden really? What about Donald Trump Jr.?"

What about them?

Did the media not already cover -- at length -- every scandal (real and imagined) involving the Trumps?

B-b-but Congress!!!!!  

They voted to impeach him twice.  If the Dems didn't do more, take it up with your Congress person.

But we're not talking about that.

We're talking about real corruption.

Public servants are supposed to behave in an ethical manner.  They are supposed to be above reproach.  They are supposed to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest.

Joe Biden's been a public servant his entire life.  

Biden’s starting salary in the Senate was $42,500 a year in 1979; when he left the Senate in 2009, he was making $169,300. As vice president, his salary shot up to $230,700; he’ll be earning $400,000 as president.

Yet the self-described "poorest man in Congress"  and "Middle Class Joe" is now a millionaire several times over.  How?

HUNTER Biden said he had to give half his salary to Joe and paid thousands for repairs at his father's home, according to leaked emails.

The claims were found on the laptop that Hunter, 51, allegedly abandoned at a Delaware computer shop, the contents of which were leaked last year.

The allegations about having to pay his father came in text messages between Hunter and his daughter, Naomi, 27, according to the New York Post.

"I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years," a text Hunter reportedly wrote in 2019 said.

"It's really hard. But don't worry, unlike Pop [Joe Biden], I won't make you give me half your salary."

The outlet reported that there was no direct evidence of this type of wealth transfer found on the laptop.

Emails found on the laptop do, however, show evidence of Hunter being propositioned about the best way to pay thousands of dollars owed for repairs to his father's properties back in 2010.

 There was a time when people laughed at Joe's claims of Hunter's innocence, times when he was seen as a dupe or an excessively loyal (and enabling) father. But it appears more and more that Joe wasn't trying to protect his son -- or even his brother.  No, Joe lied because it all comes back to his doorstep.

The "big guy" appears to have  been involved and in the know.

If that is the case, this is a huge story because that means one of two things.  First possiblity, Joe knew all along and was doing this in the US Senate.  Second possibility, he only started participating after he became Vice President.  If it's the first, surely others are implacted -- other members of Congress and we need real oversight.  If it's the second, what made him do this?  He was vice president and he decides to start doing pay-to-play?  He begins a late-life crime spree?  Why?
