Could the Biden family mess be one of the greatest corruption scandals in US history? 

August 2 — A law professor yesterday has suggested that the Biden family influence is shaping up to be one of the greatest corruption scandals in the history of Washington, DC. 

Pat Ryan of NewsTalk 103.7FM wondered, “He is incompetent, and the incompetence, could that, a couple of months down the road, be the cover that they’ll use for this individual that occupies the White House?”

Attorney Clint Barkdoll said, “I’ve started to wonder, this whole Hunter Biden story, could this become the convenient off ramp for Joe Biden? Yes, he’s running for reelection, but there’s still a lot of buzz out there. His age and his condition, how is he really going to do this?”

A few weeks ago, there was some reporting that California Governor Gavin Newsom is apparently ready to run. 

Barkdoll said, “We know that Biden and Newsom met a few weeks ago and it just makes you wonder, does Newsom know something that the rest of us don’t?”

There was a closed door hearing yesterday and the Republicans came out of the meeting saying this is the smoking gun, there’s clearly corruption and bribery going on with the Bidens. 

Barkdoll said, “The Democrats that came out of the hearing said there was no admission of anything, if anything the witness said that there was not any kind of corruption or collusion. So again, what do we believe? What will solve this tiebreaker, by the way, is the transcript of yesterday’s hearing will eventually be released. We don’t know if it’ll be this week or if it might be even in another couple of weeks, but the full transcript of this will be released. It’s still not clear to me what the Oversight Committee does with all this. Are they going to make a referral to the Department of Justice? Are they going to issue a final report outlining where they think the law was broken? All we know for now is the Oversight Committee is saying they do intend to conduct more hearings before they conclude their investigation.”

Michele Jansen of NewsTalk 103.7FM said, “Well, unfortunately, the hearings done in DC have now been so jaded in the American people’s mind, again, if you don’t actually try to understand the news from both perspectives, you’re just going to think, oh, this is all political, and this means nothing. But we do have to point out the comparison between the evidence that Democrats are now, I mean, it’s hilarious to hear Adam Schiff come out and say that this is an impeachment in search of evidence. They don’t have a shred of evidence. Of course, now they’re defining evidence as actual words coming out of the President’s mouth or documentation that says we are receiving this money so that it can have influence in Washington DC. Apparently that’s the standard now, certainly not the standard that was applied to Trump with all the circumstantial evidence they went after. It’s just hilarious to hear that. CNN’s reporting that Devon Archer, I found it very interesting, supposedly, and we’ll find out when we get the transcript, there’s this illusion of access that Devon Archer admitted to and they’re trying to act like that’s not a big deal. If the son of the Vice President is even giving you an illusion of access with the Vice President himself, admittedly 20 times is what they’re saying on the phone, with some of these business partners. Oh, he didn’t call to talk to the business partners, he’s just checking on because he’s such a devoted father. He wants to check on his son’s well being. He’s not paying attention to who might be sitting around the table on speakerphone listening to him. This is insane. There’s no way under any other circumstances this wouldn’t be seen as complete, unethical, dangerous behavior to engage in with potentially our foreign enemies.”

Barkdoll said, “I’ve never believed Biden’s story, he’s been asked over the years about this situation and Joe Biden’s position has been, I never talked to my son about his foreign business dealings. I find that just impossible to believe. We know that Hunter Biden traveled with Joe Biden as Vice President on some of these overseas trips, and the idea that Joe Biden would have never said to his son, hey, what are you going to do while we’re over here on this trip, to me is just unbelievable. But yet, that seems to be the story that has emerged in some circles. Axios, they’re also spinning that out of yesterday’s hearing that that’s what this Devon Archer said. We’ll see what the transcripts say. The other irony I think to this is there’s no doubt as vice president this idea that they were selling the Biden brand, certainly Vice President Biden would have been able to give access to a lot of these people, but go back then to 2017 when President Trump took office, Joe Biden was kind of an afterthought. I don’t think he was really on the radar as a presidential candidate, even if no one really thought he had a shot at becoming the president. But yet, it seems like Hunter Biden tried to keep cultivating this idea that Joe Biden was this key US government official that they were going to keep selling access to and there’s where if something like that was going on, legally a lot of this is going to boil down to whether criminal conduct occurred or not.”

Jansen said, “Well and think about it, this is the spin that they’ve been trying to give out. He didn’t ever talk about the business, and he’s such a caring and concerned father. How dare you question a father’s love for his son? There is no love. Please. There’s no way Joe Biden, Jill Biden, and the rest of the family didn’t know that Hunter Biden was living high off the hog and if he is a cocaine addict, if he’s a drug addict, you don’t be happy about him having tons of money to go spend on this kind of thing. You’d be terrified that he’s going to die, that he’s going to get thrown in jail, if he’s a loving father for his own sake. So you don’t be calling him every single day and say you don’t know that this is going on and you would never question where are you getting all this money, son? I’m really worried about you. How the American public or anybody can swallow that this is a loving father is so beyond me or that he never talked to him if he’s supposedly talking to him every day including being on speakerphone with these said business partners.” 

Ryan said, “I don’t care about the loving father stuff at all. That stuff is in the rearview mirror. This family is so compromised and this President is so compromised. You’re clearly selling out the country all over the place.” 

Jansen said, “It was later clarified that it was an illusion of access and knowledge and how it worked. How do we have an illusion of knowledge of how it worked?”

Barkdoll added, “Think about what was Hunter Biden bringing to the table to these companies? We know he was getting $1 million a year from Burisma to be a board member and that’s not disputed and that’s not illegal that he was on their board and getting money. But what was he bringing to the table? Yes, he was a Yale educated attorney. What he was bringing to the table was the name, was the access and I think there’s where again, a lot of this hinges on what exactly was he promising? If he’s just getting a fortune on his name, that in and of itself is not illegal. It’s probably unethical, but if the evidence starts to become, he was getting paid a fortune, and part of the payment was hey, well as I’m getting paid, I’m going to set up meetings with my dad, the Vice President, or I’m going to get you access to some sources that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to access through my dad. There’s where you could be getting into the territory of illegal behavior and that’s what this committee and others are investigating.”
