(Liberty Bell) – Newly discovered emails that are allegedly from the water-damaged laptop of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, have become the main story that everyone is talking about across the country. A lot of folks on both the left and the right are wondering what, exactly, these email messages have to do with the election and why some are saying that the fallout from these documents could spell disaster for the elder Biden’s presidential campaign.
Simply put, if the emails are authentic — and lots of information is coming available that proves they are — then that means that Joe Biden, while serving as vice president, abused the powers of his office in order to help enrich members of his family, along with pocketed a little change for himself in the process.
Breitbart News reports that a recent book put out by senior contributor Peter Schweizer called Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite, documents how Biden’s family members and close friends used his name to make money, most of it accrued overseas.
Schweizer writes, “The Biden family partners are often foreign governments, where the deals occur in the dark corners of international finance like Kazakhstan, China, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Ukraine, and Russia. Some deals have even involved U.S. taxpayer money. The cast of characters includes sketchy companies, violent convicted felons, foreign oligarchs, and other people who typically expect favors in return.”
“The Biden family’s apparent self-enrichment depends on Joe Biden’s political influence and involves no less than five family members: Joe’s son Hunter, daughter Ashley, brothers James and Frank, and sister Valerie,” Schweizer notes in the book.
“The Bidens leverage political power not only for generating deals, but also for the opportunities to quietly develop the financial resources of wealthy friends for the benefit of the family. Friends that help the Bidens can count on Joe to grant them governmental favors,” the Breitbart contributor adds.
Back in 2014, the youngest son of Joe Biden, Hunter, took a position on the board of Burisma Holdings. Many foks in the media then asked the Obama White House about this arrangement because it’s a conflict of interest, seeing as how Vice President Biden was the head of the president’s diplomatic outreach to Ukraine.
“I would refer you to the Vice President’s office,” press secretary Jay Carney responded.
Joel B. Pollack, a writer for Breitbart notes in his report that while the administration was putting on a brave front outside, the inside of the administration feature a few prominent individuals raising concern about the arrangement.
“One State Department official, George Kent, told the House Intelligence Committee last year that he had brought up Burisma with the Vice President’s office. Nothing was done,” Pollack’s report says.
“There has been no indication of conflict of interest in Ukraine or anywhere else, period,” Biden said to the media in 2019.
However, that was not the truth. An investigation carried out by the Senate discovered that Biden was warned about his son and Burisma in 2015. And yet, Biden took no actionable steps to resolve the conflict of interest. In fact, he kept right on leading the U.S. foreign policy outreach to Ukraine.
Then, in 2018, Biden boasted, in a video clip, that he applied force to Ukrainian officials to have a prosecutor fired by threatening to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees from them if they didn’t do it. This money was desperately needed at that time, as they were being invaded by Russia.
Democrats have tried to justify Biden’s actions by saying the prosecutor was corrupt, which might be true. However, he was also investigating Burisma Holdings, where Joe’s son Hunter was on the board, so that again is a conflict of interest and definitely looks suspicious.
“When he was asked last summer about ‘allegations that his younger brother James and his son Hunter have sought to use his political connections to enrich themselves,’ Biden declared: ‘I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses. Period,’ Breitbart’s Pollack said.
An email from Vadim Pozaharskyi, an adviser for Burisma told Hunter and some of his other business partners that he expected them to provide “deliverabls” and one of those was the “ultimate purpose” of stopping “cases/pursuits.”
Which is exactly what Vice President Biden did by strong arming the government to fire the prosecutor investigating the company.
“Breitbart News also uncovered emails showing that Hunter Biden and his associates “used their access to the Obama-Biden administration to arrange private meetings for potential foreign clients and investors at the highest levels in the White House.” These foreign clients included senior Chinese executives and members of the Chinese Communist Party. And a photo has emerged showing Joe and Hunter Biden meeting an oligarch from Kazakhstan whom Hunter Biden was advising,” Pollack continues in his report.
The bottom line is that there is proof Joe Biden was involved in abuse of power to help make himself and his children rich, and has since then lied through his teeth about the whole thing. Is this the kind of man we want in the White House?
If he abused his power as vice president for the purpose of wealth and nepotism, just imagine what he would do with the office of president? Folks, this man is not worthy or fit to sit in the Oval Office.
