In a staggering act of journalistic deceit, the New York Times is reporting that Republicans launched an impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden without any “evidence of financial wrongdoing or corruption by the president.” Similar statements have been made by a massive array of media outlets and Democrat politicians.
In reality, overwhelming proof of Joe Biden’s corruption and wrongdoing has been found, including hard evidence like written records and corroborated testimonies from first-hand witnesses. Collectively, at least 12 sets of documented facts leave no reasonable doubt that Biden participated in his son’s illicit businesses deals, bribed foreign officials, and obstructed justice.
Moreover, no less than three major defenses of Biden are demonstrably false.
1) “Don’t Mention Joe”
Joe Biden claimed at least eight times that he had nothing to do with his son Hunter’s business dealings and never even spoke to Hunter about them. For example, he told a group of reporters on August 28, 2019:
I have never discussed with my son, or my brother, or anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses, period.
In May 2017, two of Hunter’s business partners exchanged several WhatsApp messages about the Biden family’s involvement in their dealings, and one of the partners wrote to the other:
Don’t mention Joe being involved, it’s only when u are face to face, I know u know that but they are paranoid.
2) “A Chairman’s Role”
In 2023, the business partner who was on the receiving end of the “Don’t mention Joe” message stated:
The American people don’t fully appreciate yet the key role Joe Biden played in the Biden family global influence peddling … I would equate it to a chairman’s role in a traditional business structure.
3) “The Big Guy”
In May 2017, the same partner who wrote “Don’t mention Joe” sent an email to Hunter and two of their other partners in which he proposed how the “equity” of a joint venture with a Chinese energy company named CEFC would be “distributed.”
He did by listing the initials of the people copied on the email and numbers that add up to 100 percent. The last one says, “10 held by H for the big guy?”
The only person copied on the email with the initial “H” is Hunter Biden, and a partner who received the email publicly stated that “the big guy” is “in fact a reference to Joe Biden” and the “email is genuine.”
CEFC was not an ordinary business but an effective arm of the Chinese government. In a 2018 voice recording, Hunter Biden described one of the company’s executives who directly paid Hunter $1,000,000 as the “spy chief of China.”
4) “Sitting Here With My Father”
On July 30, 2017, Hunter Biden sent a threatening WhatsApp message to a CEFC executive stating:
- “I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled.”
- “Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight.”
- “If I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you,” the chairman, or another executive named Zhang, “I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction.”
- “I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father.”
Four photographs prove that Hunter was at Joe’s house that day and took Joe’s cherished Corvette out for a spin.
One week later on August 8, a major corporate shareholder of CEFC wired $5 million to a company named Hudson West III, which had a bank account balance of zero just five days earlier. This company then funneled more than $4 million to companies associated with Hunter.
5) “His BROTHER”
Two and a half weeks after that $5 million wire, Hunter texted a CEFC executive about a meeting at New York City penthouse recently purchased by the chairman of CEFC, “My uncle will be here with his BROTHER who would like to say hello to the Chairman.”
The “uncle” was Jim Biden, who made $65,000 per month on this deal. The “BROTHER” was undoubtedly Joe Biden, as evidenced by Hunter’s use of ALL CAPS and the fact that Hunter invoked his father to threaten CEFC one month earlier.
6) The “Russian Disinformation” Lie
One week after the contents of Hunter’s laptop became public in October 2020, Joe Biden and Donald Trump had their last debate of the 2020 presidential election. During this nationally televised event aired by all major networks, Biden claimed he had a reputation “for honor and telling the truth,” Trump responded by pointing to Hunter’s laptop, and Biden replied:
There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what he’s accusing me of is a Russian plant. They have said that this has all the—four—five former heads of the CIA—both parties—say what he’s saying is a bunch of garbage. Nobody believes it except him and his good friend, Rudy Giuliani.
Trump responded, “You mean the laptop is now another ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ hoax? You gotta be—Is this where you’re going?” Biden shot back, “That’s exactly what—exactly what was told.”
That isn’t even close to what the intelligence officials said. More importantly, the contents of the laptop have been widely verified as authentic, and evidence of this was clear from the start.
Even if Hunter lied to his father, Joe knew right away that incriminating information from the laptop was real because he personally participated in it. For example, the very first article about the laptop exposed an email that showed Joe met with one of Hunter’s business partners in April 2015. Despite multiple emails from the laptop proving the meeting happened, the Biden campaign and numerous media outlets cast doubt on this fact until a photo and testimony from one of the attendees confirmed it occurred.
Furthermore, the intel officials didn’t allege that the contents of the laptop were fake. Instead, they claimed that the release of the content had “the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation” while admitting that “we do not have evidence of Russian involvement—just that our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case.”
That’s a far cry from Biden’s assertion that the laptop was a “bunch of garbage” and “nobody believes it.”
Even though Biden blatantly misrepresented on national television what these intel officials wrote, not one of them publicly corrected him. Nor did they correct the gaggle of major media outlets and so-called fact checkers who changed the phrase “Russian information” to “Russian disinformation.”
In short, the intel officials never had any evidence of Russian involvement and stayed silent as their words were twisted by Biden and the media. This reeks of a concerted and widespread disinformation campaign to hide the truth about Biden from the American people.
So does that fact that former acting CIA director Mike Morell admitted under oath that he asked his fellow intel officials to sign the “Russian information” statement:
- at the prompting of Antony Blinken, who is now Biden’s Secretary of State.
- because “I wanted him [Biden] to win the election.”
