US: Fears of Biden White House Corruption Keep Growing

The White House on Thursday ruled out the possibility that President Biden would end up pardoning his son, Hunter, after a federal judge on Wednesday rejected an absurd plea deal which effectively made Hunter bulletproof from future prosecution for various crimes.

The judge’s decision puts Hunter’s case on hold for several weeks as both sides submit new materials to judge Maryellen Noreika.

Meanwhile, the White House has backtracked on its language concerning Joe Biden’s claim that he ‘never discussed’ Hunter’s business dealings with his son, after evidence emerged late last month contradicting that claim.

“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden claimed in September 2020 on the campaign trail. One month later, he doubled down in a radio interview, saying “I don’t discuss business with my son.”

Except, in late June a text message presented during testimony by IRS whistleblowers before the House Ways and Means Committee reveals Hunter essentially asking a Chinese businessman where their bribe is.

“I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled,” wrote Hunter via WhatsApp on July 30, 2017. “Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight.”

Hunter then warned that “if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang or the chairman, 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.”

Now, the White House’s verbiage is a bit different when it comes to Hunter and Joe – after Ian Sams, a spokesman for  the White House counsel’s office, told the Washington Examiner “As we have said many times before, the president was not in business with his son.”

The White House press secretary repeated the line on Tuesday. 

Asked by RealClearPolitics at the daily White House briefing Wednesday why the language had shifted and if both statements were simultaneously true, Karine Jean-Pierre replied, “Nothing has changed on this. You could ask me a million different ways on this question. Nothing has changed.”

The exchange was enough for New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, the chairwoman of the House Republican conference, to allege that the White House was engaged in a coverup.
