Since Republicans have retaken their control of the House of Representatives, Democrats along with their colleagues within the activist media are once more trying to hide what they perceive to be the Hunter Biden scandal.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Thursday attended an event with Rep. James Comer (R-KY) In the press conference, they announced that they are beginning an investigation into President Joe Biden's son's international business transactions. This clearly irritates Democrats who have tried to avoid this issue for more than two years.
The press is trying to defend Hunter, the son of the president, after admitting that they were in error when they claimed that his laptop was just Russian disinformation. The Associated Press published a report on Saturday claiming Republicans did not provide proof that shows that the president Joe Biden ever discussed Hunter's business relationships.
“Joe Biden has said he's never spoken to his son about his foreign business, and nothing the Republicans have put forth suggests otherwise,” the writer noted.
It is not surprising that this assertion is a lie.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said in 2020 that Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter's, had a meeting with the president two times to discuss a potential business deal in 2020 with CEFC China Energy Company. “I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden,” Bobulinski said.
In one of the messages that was found on Hunter's laptop, the man explained the percentages of equity in a firm that was created to participate in an enterprise partnership together with a Chinese Energy company. The email also included “10 held by H for the big guy,” according to the New York Post.
And, even more importantly, Joe Biden left a voice message to his son about a New York Times story detailing the arrangement with CEFC. The president said to his son “I think you're clear” when referring to the company. This is in contrast to Joe Biden's earlier assertions that he did not speak to his son regarding their family's enterprise.
“Hey pal, it's Dad. It's 8:15 in the evening on Wednesday. If you have a chance, you can give me a call. There is nothing urgent. Just wanted to talk with you.” Joe Biden said on the voicemail.
“I found the article that was released online, and will appear in the Times. It was very good. I believe you're on the right track. If you ever get an opportunity, contact me. I love you,” he said.
Yet, the activist media insists that there isn't “there”.
Politico, on Thursday, released a piece where the authors claimed “no evidence has publicly emerged that [Joe Biden's] decisions were affected by his son's business.”
Breitbart News noted:
“A minimum of 15 established media figures suggested that the laptop emails of Hunter were Russian disinformation. CNN's Brian Stelter, who has since been fired from CNN, falsely stated that ‘U.S. authorities are examining whether those emails we mentioned earlier have anything to do with the ongoing Russian disinformation operation.’”
At first, the laptop scandal was “Russian disinformation.” Then it was true but not a huge story. Now we're “okay, it's kind of a big deal, but Biden had nothing to do with it.”
However, Republicans claim to have provided more information than has been discovered. In fact, McCarthy and Comer seem quite certain they hold an evidence-based argument. If their claims are grounded in reality, it is possible that they will be able to trigger an impeachment trial that could be serious for President Biden. In any case, it's obvious that the Democrats and the militant media should be worried.
