A Biden Crime Family Christmas

I hear Hunter gave everybody generous gift cards this year, again.

It's been kind of amusing watching Peter Doocey from Fox try to get a straight answer out of Joe about Hunter's business dealings.  “God love you, man. You’re a one horse pony,”  Bryan Preston at PJ Media, Confused or Dishonest? Biden Claims Hunter Stories Are 'Russian Disinformation,' Calls Reporter a Weird Name for Asking About Them. Embrace the healing power of "and." Joe Concha on Da Hill, Joe Biden's continued 'Russian misinformation' defense of Hunter is conspiracy-level laughable. David Marcus at Da Fed, When Finally Asked About Hunter, Joe Biden Retreats To Debunked Russian Disinformation Conspiracy Theory, Chuck Ross at Da Caller, Joe Biden Still Thinks Allegations About His Son Are ‘Russian Disinformation’, PM, Joe Biden is still falsely claiming that allegations against Hunter are 'Russian disinformation'. Ace lays it on a little thick in Demented Braying Jackass Biden Laughs Off Question About His Corrupt Crackhead Whoremonger Drop. And at Fox, Jonathan Turley: Joe Biden dodges questions on Hunter by ridiculing reporters. But why talk about ponies?

Biden’s response is just not working. Much of the media openly worked to bury the Hunter Biden scandal before the election, but the ponies keep finding their way back. The problem is when one reporter like Doocy refuses to be corralled and insists on an answer to serious questions.

A question this week was a good one. Doocy yelled out: "Mr. President-elect, do you still think that the stories from the fall about your son Hunter were Russian disinformation and a smear campaign like you said?"

Biden’s response of "yes, yes, yes" seemed to continue a discredited claim (indeed, "disinformation") put out by figures like House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who assured the public that "this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin."

Some 50 former intelligence officials, including President Barack Obama’s CIA Directors John Brennan and Leon Panetta, also insisted the story about material found on a laptop purported to belong to Hunter Biden was likely the work of Russian intelligence. Many cable news hosts and journalists laughed at the laptop story as fake news to justify the blackout on coverage before the election.

Then the pony showed up again. After the election, it was confirmed (as some of us discussed in columns before the election) that Hunter Biden is under federal investigation. The claim about the laptop belonging to Hunter Biden appears to be genuine. The emails appear to be genuine. And Doocy has continued to ask the obvious questions.

Joe Biden is still hoping that he can continue to mock and the media will continue to do the rest. One reporter this week did raise the scandal but only to ask if Biden discussed it with people he is considering nominating for attorney general (the campaign already said that Biden was going to allow the Justice Department to reach its own conclusions).

There are other obvious questions, including whether a key business associate of the Bidens, Tony Bobulinski, is lying. Either Bobulinski or Joe Biden is lying.

Bobulinski, who is repeatedly praised by Hunter Biden in emails and is identified as the person in control of transactions for "the family," has directly contradicted Joe Biden’s denial of any knowledge or involvement in his son’s dubious dealings.

There is a reason why Joe Biden does not just answer that question. If he calls Bobulinski a liar, Biden would be hit with a defamation lawsuit within days. He would then be forced to go under oath to answer questions.

WSJ, Hunter Biden’s Family Name Aided Deals With Foreign Tycoons "Business dealings of Joe Biden’s son are at the center of a federal tax investigation and loom over the start of his presidency." John Solomon at JTN, Emails obtained by FBI detail how Hunter Biden landed Ukrainian gas gig in 2014 "Memos show concerted strategy to leverage VP Joe Biden's trip to Kiev to score Burisma Holdings deal."
The memos also show how Hunter Biden pressed to get Burisma Holdings to sign some sort of consulting deal with him and his business partner Devon Archer before the U.S. vice president visited Ukraine on April 21-22, 2014.

"The contract should begin now — not after the upcoming visit of my guy," Hunter Biden wrote Archer in a detailed strategy email on April 13, 2014, a week before his father's high-profile visit.

The memo shows Hunter Biden already knew he was going to be appointed to Burisma's board along with Archer in mid-April 2014 — a month before it was announced — and that he also wanted Burisma to pay an additional consulting fee to him or his law firm Boies Schiller Flexner, referred to in the emails as "BSF."

The deal with Burisma "should include a retainer in the range of 25k p/m w/ additional fees where appropriate for more in depth work to go to BSF for our protection," Hunter Biden wrote. "Complete separate from our respective deals re board participation."

Tristan Justice at Da Fed, While The Spotlight Shines On Hunter Biden, James Biden Is Also Under Investigation. There's something about coke and hookers that spices up a story. 

Public reporting of James Biden’s business deals alongside Hunter in China have almost certainly only scratched the surface. What we do know, however, beyond the Chinese business activity that featured an extravagant shopping spree, is that James Biden is under ongoing investigation by federal authorities in Western Pennsylvania over a series of hospital deals struck under Americore Health, a firm built on the model of buying and operating rural hospitals.

FBI agents raided one of the now-bankrupt firm’s hospitals in January, along with the home of its CEO, Grant White. James Biden’s home was not raided, James, a heavy investor in the company, became the subject of a lawsuit from White, accusing him of fraud and racketeering. This ultimately toppled the firm to the ground.

In court documents reported by The Federalist’s Mark Hemingway this spring, White accused James Biden of diverting funds for the struggling Americore for his own, partly used to save a vacation residence in Florida. White says James Biden never paid the company back as the firm was going under.

Natalie Winters at TNP,  High-Level Biden Staffers Consulted For CCP-Linked Drone Firm Banned By US Govt

Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden counts high-level staffers – Senior Spokesman for Biden Inaugural Committee Matt Hill and Director of State Communication Meira Bernstein – as alumni of the Global Strategy Group: a consulting firm that represents Chinese Communist Party-linked drone company DJI.

In contrast, the Trump administration had moved to blacklist the firm from operating in the U.S. alongside a host of Chinese Communist Party-linked companies.

Wa Free Bee, CA Dem Who Pushed Plum Contract to Biden-Linked Firm Tapped for Senate Seat

The California Democrat who fought to pay out a $35 million state contract to a Biden-linked consulting firm was selected to succeed Vice President-elect Kamala Harris in the U.S. Senate.

Democratic governor Gavin Newsom appointed California secretary of state Alex Padilla to replace Harris on Tuesday, months after Padilla awarded Democratic public relations giant SKDKnickerbocker a $35 million no-bid contract as part of a state voter outreach program.

The secretive deal saw Padilla ensnared in controversy as he lobbied for the Senate seat. After California's chief fiscal officer refused to approve the contract—arguing that Padilla lacked the authority to grant it—Padilla spent months lobbying to pay the firm, which has deep ties to Harris and President-elect Joe Biden.

Cutie Pavlich at Town Hall,  Graham: With All Due Respect, We Need a Special Counsel for Hunter Biden, and despite Bill Barr declining to do so, DOJ officials in 'ongoing discussions' about Hunter Biden special counsel, some say it's 'warranted' (Fox). And at Da Caller, ‘Pretty Much Clueless’: Lindsey Graham Responds To Former Friend Joe Biden’s ‘Personal Disappointment’ Attack

“Lindsey’s been a personal disappointment because I was a personal friend of his,” Biden told “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert last Thursday before expressing his desire to be able to work with Republican House and Senate leadership.

“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Graham for his reaction during a Tuesday morning interview.

“We’re not going to live in a country where the Trumps get looked at, you know, from the time they get up ’til the time they go to bed,” said Graham. “I like Joe Biden, I like Jill. This is not easy. Hunter Biden’s had all kind of problems, but I can promise you that what I’m asking for needs to be done. We’re not going to give the Democrats a pass.”

“What happened here is that Hunter Biden took advantage of his position of being the vice president’s son,” he continued. “I’m disappointed that Joe Biden let this happen, and he obviously is pretty much clueless. He says he didn’t know that Hunter Biden was on Burisma’s board, the most corrupt gas company in the Ukraine when Joe Biden was in charge of dealing with corruption.”

“He has a lot to answer for,” Graham added. “It’s not personal. It breaks my heart that this happened, but I’m hell-bent on making sure we live in a country where everybody gets looked at when there’s a reason.”

Did he really? Angela Stanton King, Joe Biden just said this country is doomed because of African Americans and because white ppl will be the minority we BETTER learn to work w/ Hispanics.

It sure seems like his voice.
