Bidens ‘Sold Out’ America – A bold new op-ed argues that Joe and Hunter Biden have escaped legal consequences for what the author calls the “Great Selling Out of America” – their alleged involvement in influence peddling and corruption.
In the opinion piece for Fox News, by Gregg Jarrett highlights three key reasons behind this alleged scandal.
Proficiency in Corruption by Biden Family
Jarrett, a former defense attorney and adjunct law professor, argues that the Bidens were adept at corruption, citing Hunter Biden’s purported boast about the Biden family’s ability to do what the Chinese Communist Party wanted.
He suggests that promises of future influence were exchanged for monetary gain.
Elaborate Financial Web
According to Jarrett, Hunter Biden set up a complex network of shell companies to obscure the flow of millions of dollars.
The money was allegedly laundered through intricate wire transfers, ultimately reaching the Bidens without a trace.
Jarrett contends that the government intentionally ignored the situation. While some members of the Obama administration were reportedly aware, they allegedly did little to intervene.
Jarrett accuses the FBI and the Department of Justice of suppressing evidence and politically interfering with the investigation.
Jarrett also criticizes Attorney General Merrick Garland and U.S. Attorney David Weiss for allegedly protecting the Bidens. He claims that the government’s reluctance to pursue serious charges was due to fears of Joe Biden being called as a witness in any criminal trial.
He concludes that the House Oversight Committee and House Judiciary Committee are actively investigating the Bidens, aiming to expose their alleged corruption as the 2024 presidential election approaches.
The ‘Lock Him Up’ Election
Writing for The Spectator World magazine, editor Ben Domenech expressed his concerns that the entire election debate had become one about candidates’ legal fates, writing on Tuesday:
“It’s time to acknowledge the obvious truth about 2024: it’s going to be an election about who Americans want to go to the White House – and who they want to go straight to jail.”
He points to the fact that a recent CBS News poll found that 73 per cent of Trump’s voters name ‘show support for his legal troubles’ as a reason for their backing of the ex-President.
Dems Are Doing It Too
Nor is this unique to republicans Douglas E. Schoen, a former aide to President Bill Clinton, argued in a column for The Hill on Monday, that previous Presidential impeachments, including that of his former boss, saw poll numbers rise post-proceedings. He also highlighted how the case has been the same for Donald Trump. Yet, such actions also eroded trust in government institutions.
These dynamics raise concerns, especially among Senate Republicans, that moving forward with impeachment could alienate moderate voters and establish a precedent for politically motivated impeachment. Senate Republican Whip John Thune expressed that focusing on the future and winning elections should be the primary objective.
