June 16 – President Joe Biden may call the allegations “malarkey” that he and his son Hunter engaged in a multi-million dollar alleged bribery scheme with a company in Ukraine, but an executive with the Burisma company could have it all on tape.
Attorney Clint Barkdoll said, “This is largely from when he was vice president of the United States. Now on those recordings, I was struck yesterday, several Senate Republicans are now throwing cold water on those recordings. Now they’re not sure if those tapes exist. They’re admitting that Grassley obviously came out and said he heard that they’ve existed but there now seems to be some data recordings. That issue aside, I think there seems to be growing evidence and questions that Biden was involved in something here that is worthy of further investigation and exploration.”
A US House committee is actively investigating this.
Barkdoll said, “I think eventually, we’ll see what the evidence is. Will they be able to piece enough of this together? There’s some reporting, too, that the Bidens had all these different LLCs set up to make it more difficult to detect how this money was moving and flowing among family members. If that is true, this is something that the government, law enforcement agencies, need to be examining, and maybe eventually bringing charges for.”
Michele Jansen of NewsTalk 103.7FM pointed out, “I don’t know how you can have the number of red flag bank transactions that they have. They say a person getting one or two of them in a lifetime would be extraordinary and odd, and also a sign that you’re not doing something correctly. But for them, they have a perfect money laundering scheme lined up there with all these LLCs and the way money was flowing to different family members. I mean, what else would it be? Why else would they have these things? They don’t have any business skills or products that would justify these. So how in the world can you look at it and not think this is some kind of money laundering scheme to hide money transactions? The idea that the press has zero interest in digging into this, there should have been some journalist getting an award for their skills of investigation at this point, but there’s no interest in them going after any of this.”
Barkdoll said, “I would still like to think there’s a media outlet working on that as we speak, but I am concerned that we’ve not seen some huge expose from a media outlet that has really dug into this. Maybe it’s just so convoluted that they’re not able to get to the bottom of it, but there certainly seems to be a lot of smoke here and more so than even a month or two ago because there’s these new tidbits of evidence that keep coming out. Even though even Grassley himself is now saying he doesn’t know if those tapes are real, that’s not to say they don’t exist either. Apparently they received some briefing and some intelligence to suggest that these tapes are out there. If they do exist, these investigative committees, the FBI, the DOJ, someone should be trying to run them down to listen to them if they’re out there.”
Add to all this, the student loan forgiveness plan that Biden put in place a year ago, this administration is a mess.
The US Supreme Court will ultimately make the decision on whether that forgiveness program will stand.
Jansen noted, “Here’s the problem, they’re talking about the money that’s going to be pulled out of the system if the students have to start repaying their loans, their obligation, by the way, something that they signed on to do to get their education. But what’s worrying me is all this wah wah, we’re going to take this money out of the system, but it’s sort of fake money. We have money coming from the COVID, food stamps, the issues, those things that went away, and they said that’s about $3 billion per month that then isn’t being spent on things and they’re worried about how that affects the economy. Now they’re saying this will be $5 to $8 billion coming out of the system per month that these loan pay re-payers will not be able to buy clothes and spend on restaurants. But is that real? Because they do have this obligation. What about all the money that should be going back to repay their loans? But here we’re worried about how it’s going to impact the economy.”
Barkdoll said, “Remember, a lot of those loans had still been on a deferred or suspended status. Part of that budget extension deal and this was something that Republicans negotiated on their side was all of those payments must be reinstated as of this August. Biden was going to apparently just leave that deferment in place for a longer period of time. So if you’re in the student loan category, I think you need to be prepared in the very near future to start making these payments again. They had this pipe dream that all of this was just going to vanish through the president’s executive order. It is interesting that you’re seeing all of this kind of consternation, well, we’re not going to be able to pay these loans back. These students have received the benefit of those loans. They went to a program. They got a degree or a certificate to improve their job prospects, their career. They have an obligation to repay that money.”
Pat Ryan of NewsTalk 103.7FM said, “You know what, I had a loan payment and I managed to go out for icy cold beverages and I managed to go out for food as well. I paid my obligation back and I had car payment as well. So don’t give me that nonsense, eat it.”
Jansen noted, “They’re capable of doing it. It’s just we’ve made people very lazy and complacent with all this extra money coming from the government, which really doesn’t produce anything. Everybody wonders, why is the economy going down the tubes? Why do we have inflation? This is why.”
