Yes, Hunter Biden is making headlines. Again.
First there was all the news that surrounded his laptop – news that the FBI and Department of Justice did everything in their power to bury. And now, as he prepares to plead guilty to lesser charges of failing to pay taxes and a felony gun charge, it appears he’s in a whole new heap of trouble. But don’t worry – as expected, Daddy will likely try to keep him out of it.
The GOP’s continuous investigation into the Biden family have revealed an FBI document, one that has been made available publicly as of late, thanks to Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley.
In a tweet, the document, an FD-1023 form, showed that then-Vice President Biden managed to get involved in some kind of foreign bribery scheme with a Ukrainian business executive – on Hunter’s behalf.
Upon revealing the document, Grassley noted “now the world can see” for themselves the evidence at hand. “While the FBI sought to obfuscate and redact, the American people can now read this document for themselves, without the filter of politicians or bureaucrats.”
The document had first surfaced shortly after the public testimony of two IRS agents involved with the case, who stated they faced heavy opposition from Joe Biden’s government bureaus when it came to getting information.
But what’s more concerning is that the House Oversight Committee had to fight tooth and nail with the FBI in order to gain access to it, with James Comer actually threatening the agency with contempt proceedings if they failed to deliver. That’s right, they had to fight the FBI to release their own document – which is ridiculous.
As you might expect, Biden has already ordered people on his behalf to “fight back,” as it were. In a statement, Jamie Raskin, a Democratic Representative for Maryland, noted that Grassley’s actions were “another transparently desperate attempt by Committee Republicans to revive the aging and debunked Giuliani-framed conspiracy theories and to distract from their continuing failure to produce any actual evidence of wrongdoing by the President.”
Now, correct me if I’m wrong, Representative Raskin, but…the document is the proof. Just because one of your precious bureaus didn’t have the chance to filter it first for “important information” doesn’t mean it’s not sustainable proof. It’s just sustainable proof that your agencies weren’t able to alter.
As if that wasn’t enough, the Department of Justice decided to make a statement on the GOP’s actions as well, particularly those from House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte noted, “We are deeply concerned by any misrepresentations about our work – whether deliberate or arising from misunderstandings – that could unduly harm public confidence in the evenhanded administration of justice, to which we are dedicated.”
Yet there’s some confusion here, Uriarte. You note that you are “dedicated” to justice, and that you feel these “misrepresentations” are a concern. But how about the misrepresentation of a. the Committee actually having to threaten the FBI in an effort to get the document; and b. having to immediately discredit the document despite the fact that it contains factual information that the Bidens may have been involved in some shady goings-on?
It sounds like someone’s trying to blow smoke here. But the thing is, some people can still see clearly from it.
I’ve discussed the actions of the FBI and the Department of Justice for the longest time, choosing to guard the interest of the Bidens and their administration instead of the very Americans they’re sworn to protect. Not to mention using certain citizens – like Catholics – as pawns for their surveillance game, in the hopes of “catching someone in the act” when they’re just like you or me.
Honestly, I hope the Committee keeps digging. They’re finding crucial evidence against these bureaus, as well as with the Bidens, that will hopefully turn up the truth that we so richly deserve. Because they’re clearly not going to do it themselves. And that’s a problem.
