Biden family scandal: Seven uncomfortable realities confronting the Democrat nominee

It’s not the Russians exposing Joe Biden, it’s his son’s former business partners.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has offered short, at times, halting defenses of his son Hunter’s business deals in recent weeks after months of ignoring an increasingly clear narrative of a family member pursuing lucrative business deals in the shadows of his vice presidency.

“Not one single solitary thing was out of line,” Biden said last Thursday when the questions about his son’s business dealings came up at the last presidential debate. “Not a single thing.”

“My son has not made money in terms of this thing, about what are you talking about, China,” Biden said. “I have not had, the only guy that’s made money from China is this guy,” he added, point to Donald Trump.

Other times he and his defenders have rebuffed questions about the family business as a “smear job” or “Russian disinformation.” But Biden’s campaign hasn’t disputed much of the evidence that has become public, instead declaring it doesn’t matter because no crimes have been proven.

“Investigations by the press, during impeachment, and even by two Republican-led Senate committees whose work was decried as ‘not legitimate’ and political by a GOP colleague, have all reached the same conclusion: that Joe Biden carried out official US policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing,” a campaign spokesman said recently.

But criminality isn’t the only standard by which Americans evaluate their leaders. Judgment, ethics and transparency are also essential attributes.

On such, the Biden campaign has not yet explained or confronted these seven uncomfortable realities, many which have emerged not from Russian disinformation but rather from former associates of Hunter Biden and former government subordinates of the vice president.

1. Appearance of a conflict of interest.

Joe Biden’s claim that “not one single solitary thing was out of line” is contradicted by the facts. Multiple State Department officials, including Biden’s former ambassador and deputy chief of mission in Kiev, have testified they believed the vice president created the appearance of a conflict of interest by continuing to oversee anti-corruption policy in Ukraine while his son served on the board of a company called Burisma Holdings that was under corruption investigation. The officials also said the Biden fam….

2. U.S. concerns about bribery on Hunter Biden’s watch at Burisma

Documents released under FOIA show U.S. officials twice raised concerns that Burisma made bribery payments to Ukrainian officials in 2015 and 2016 in an effort to get criminal inves…

3. Joe Biden’s claim he did not discuss his son’s business contradicted by public evidence.

There are at least three instances where there is now public evidence that Joe Biden met with foreigners his son was courting for business.

The first occurred in 2011 when Obama White House entry logs show several Chinese busin…

4. Evidence suggesting Joe Biden had a secret stake in Hunter Biden’s business world

At least two pieces of evidence have emerged in the last two weeks that suggest Hunter Biden believed his father was getting a cut of his business. The first, which remains uncorroborated by Just the News, is an email found on the purported Hunter Biden laptop in which the vice president’s son sugg….

5. The videotaped confession Joe Biden made about strong-arming Ukraine to fire its chief prosecutor

The debate over Joe Biden’s decision to force the firing of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin in March 2016 was at the heart of last year’s impeachment inquiry. But a year later, while President Trump has been acquitted, the questions about Joe Biden’s conduct remain unansw…

6. A Democratic firm’s relentless pressure on behalf of Hunter Biden’s Ukraine gas firm

The portrait of Joe Biden’s ouster of the Ukrainian prosecutor is further complicated by a growing body of evidence that Burisma Holdings and its American lobbying shop, the Democrat firm known as Blue Star Strategies, relentlessly pressured senior Obama-Biden State Depart…

7. The National Security Question: Did flagged suspicious financial transactions compromise a political family?

While much of the attention in Burisma has been on the ethics issues around Hunter Biden making money in the vapor trail of his father’s foreign policy jet-setting, a bigger question has emerged: Did foreign adversaries or frenemies in China, Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhs…

The question raised by the Senate that lingers over all these revelations is whether U.S. intelligence or the FBI explored the national security implications of these activities, including whether any foreign adversary tried to use the Biden family enterprises to launder money, a common tactic for compromising Americans. This question became even more pronounced after it was reported last week that a grand jury subpoena that was used by the FBI to seize the purported Hunter Biden laptop listed money laundering as a possible investigative focus.
