White House officials are refusing to discuss whether there have been internal conversations about Joe Biden pardoning his son Hunter or brother James if their foreign business dealings finally cause them legal trouble.
When questioned about the issue, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield said: “That’s not a hypothetical I’m going to entertain. I don’t have anything to add.”
Bedingfield went on to give reporters roundabout answers and avoid engaging with questions when asked about Biden’s knowledge of his son’s and brother’s complicated and shady business dealings and financial interests.
One reporter asked: “Is it your understanding it’s the president’s view that as he looks at all of Hunter Biden’s business dealings with his uncle, neither Hunter Biden nor James Biden committed any crimes or did anything that was unlawful?”
“We pointed to statements that were made in the fall of 2020 when we addressed these questions,” Bedingfield responded. “I don’t have anything additional to add from this podium.”
The Blaze reports:
Since 2018, Hunter Biden has been under federal investigation to see whether he, or his business connections, broke tax law, laundered money, or broke foreign lobbying laws in holding meetings and conducting business in places such as China and Russia.
Hunter Biden denies any wrongdoing and has not currently been charged with any crimes.
The US Attorney’s Office in Delaware, however, is seeking grand jury testimony concerning income he received from foreign entities, notably while he was serving on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company.
The federal prosecutors are also reportedly investigating Hunter’s drug and alcohol abuse, his frivolous spending habits, and his state of mind in 2018 to determine what sort of defense he would make in a potential criminal tax case.
In the past, the mainstream media lied about Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings, trying to hide the story to protect Joe Biden, especially during the 2020 election. Now, they have decided to admit that the stories are true.
The Blaze’s report continues:
Recently, both the New York Times and the Washington Post published pieces acknowledging the validity of Hunter’s infamous laptop. For months, leftwing legacy outlets suppressed stories about Hunter’s laptop.
In October 2020, when the New York Post first reported on the contents of the laptop’s hard drive, the story was smeared as “Russian disinformation” by prominent legacy outlets. Then-candidate Joe Biden used these reports as a shield to dismiss questions regarding his involvement n Hunter’s questionable business dealings.
However, now that the legacy media now longer has an aversion to investigating Hunter’s laptop, for whatever reason, the Washington Post has confirmed that a Chinese energy conglomerate paid $4.8 million to entities controlled by Hunter and his uncle, James Biden.
Most of these details were reported and confirmed in several outlets *before* the 2020 election — as opposed to now when it's safe to say it — but they were censored by Twitter and FB based on the CIA lie spread by most corporate outlets that it was "Russian disinformation." https://t.co/WOrzmvlz8y
