(FreedomWire.org) – On Saturday, the Associated Press falsely claimed: “Joe Biden has said he’s never spoken to his son about his foreign business, and nothing the Republicans have put forth suggests otherwise.”

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, stated as early as 2020 that whistleblower Tony Bobulinski, one of Hunter’s business partners, twice met with Joe Biden to discuss a business deal in China with CEFC China Energy Co.

“I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden,” Bobulinski stated.

“An email found on Hunter’s laptop “outlined the proposed percentage distribution of equity in a company created for a joint venture with CEFC China Energy Co,” the New York Post reported about the CEFC energy deal. The proposed business venture, sent on March 13, 2017, included “10 held by H for the big guy?”

The CEFC deal was between Bobulinski, the Biden family, and high-ranking members of the Chinese Communist Party. Bobulinski confirmed “the big guy” was a reference to Joe Biden.

Secondly, Joe Biden left a voicemail on Hunter’s phone about a New York Times story that was reporting on the CEFC deal in which Joe Biden noted, “I think you’re clear,” a reference to the family’s business deal. The voicemail directly contradicted Joe Biden’s statement in 2019 that he and his son had not spoken about the family’s business schemes.

“Hey pal, it’s Dad. It’s 8:15 on Wednesday night. If you get a chance just give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you,” Joe Biden said in the audio recording.

“I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good. I think you’re clear. And anyway if you get a chance give me a call, I love you,” the message concluded.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), the third highest ranking House Republican, told the New York Post the voicemail “is just the tip of the iceberg” regarding the evidence against the “Biden Crime Family.”

“Joe Biden said he ‘never spoke’ with Hunter about his business dealings. That is simply not true. We need to know what Joe Biden knew and when he knew it,” Stefanik said.

“This voicemail is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the evidence mounting against the Biden Crime Family. When Republicans take back Congress, we will use our congressional power of oversight to uncover the truth for every American as a matter of national security,” she added.

Thirdly, in 2015, the day after Joe Biden dined with Hunter’s Ukrainian foreign business partners, one of them emailed Hunter his thanks for the “opportunity to meet your father.” The Post reported:

The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent some time together. It’s realty an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.

An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.

(FreedomWire.org) – President Joe Biden said on Wednesday that he supports his administration scrutinizing billionaire Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter but laughed off the idea of congressional Republicans investigating his son’s illicit activities.

During a White House press conference, he was first asked about the prospect of investigating Musk’s purchase.

“Mr. President, do you think Elon Musk is a threat to U.S. national security? And should the U.S. — and with the tools you have — investigate his joint acquisition of Twitter with foreign governments, which include the Saudis?” a reporter said.

“I think that Elon Musk’s cooperation and/or technical relationships with other countries is worthy of being looked at. Whether or not he is doing anything inappropriate, I’m not suggesting that. I’m suggesting that it’s worth being looked at. But that’s all I’ll say,” the president replied.

CBS News notes that although “Musk financed much of the purchase through his own fortune,” an estimated $7.1 billion “was provided by equity investors including fellow billionaire Larry Ellison as well as foreign sources,” including Saudi Arabia.

That said, there’s no evidence suggesting that there’s anything nefarious about his equity relationship with “foreign sources,” as noted by critics.

It’s ironic because during the same press conference in which the president suggested Musk may be up to no good, he turned around and dismissed congressional Republicans’ concerns about his crack-smoking son Hunter’s history of shady business dealings.

“What’s your message to Republicans who are considering investigating your family and, particularly, your son Hunter’s business dealings?” a reporter asked him.

“Lots of luck in your senior year, as my coach used to say. Look, I think the American public want us to move on and get things done for them. And, you know, I heard that it was reported … many times that Republicans were saying, and the former president said, ‘How many times are you going to impeach Biden?’” the president replied.

“I mean, I think the — I think the American people will look at all of that for what it is. It’s just almost comedy. I mean, it’s — but, you know, look, I can’t control what they’re going to do. All I can do is continue to try to make life better for the American people,” he added.

(FreedomWire.org) – A stunning new poll shows that the majority of people want to see President Joe Biden impeached.

A new Rasmussen Reports survey, showed that 52 percent -42 percent of voter support impeachment. The numbers included 77 percent of Republicans, 50 percent of independents, and 32 percent of Democrats, The Washington Examiner reported.

But the survey respondents do not believe that Republicans are going to impeach the president, with a mere 47 percent who believe they will impeach and 43 percent who think they will not.

“Support for impeaching Biden is highest among voters 40-64, who are also most likely to think that if Republicans win in the midterms, they actually will impeach the president. Retirees are least supportive of impeaching Biden,” the poll said.

Those figures have increased since April, the outlet noted, when a smaller majority — 58 percent — said they believe that Joe Biden had a role in those business deals. At the time, 60 percent said they thought that Hunter Biden sold “influence and access” to his father.

The new polling comes after overwhelming evidence suggests that Joe Biden has been involved in his family’s business deals since 2012, when he was vice president. Joe Biden and his staff have claimed seven times Joe Biden has had no part in the family scheme, but 17 instances show otherwise.

Texts from Hunter’s laptop indicate Joe Biden received 50 percent of Hunter’s “salary” for a 30-year period. The reported texts do not reveal when the 30 years began or ended and whether Joe Biden is still a part of the payment scheme as president.

“I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years,” Hunter wrote to his daughter, according to a text message gleaned from the laptop. “It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike Pop [Joe], I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

Biden has denied any knowledge of Hunter’s business dealings.

“I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. Here’s what I know — I know Trump deserves to be investigated,” Joe Biden claimed on the campaign trail in 2020.

“It’s a smear campaign,” he added in October 2020.

“My son has no made money from China,” he repeated just a few days later, the outlet reported.

U.S. prosecutor David Weiss, appointed by former President Trump, is deliberating whether Hunter and associates “violated money laundering, campaign finance, tax and foreign lobbying laws, as well as whether Hunter Biden broke federal firearm and other regulations,” CNN reported in July.

A grand jury has also been convened in the investigation.

(FreedomWire.org) – James Biden is the latest member of the Biden family whose business ventures have surfaced as Joe Biden progresses towards possibly becoming the Democratic presidential nominee.

James Biden’s business with medical companies – including Americore Health – has led to allegations that he potentially engaged in fraud and traded on his brother’s name, by claiming Joe was interested in the venture and the family name could provide opportunities.

“It was all smoke and mirrors,” former Americore Health executive Tom Pritchard told Politico. James Biden reportedly convinced Americore that he could use his political clout to deliver a significant influx of cash in the form of an investment from the Middle East, and even convinced the company to take on financial burdens including a six-figure loan to James that he has yet to repay.

James Biden, Americore and Americore founder Grant White are among those now facing a lawsuit from medical companies in Tennessee federal court accusing them of fraud over alleged promises made. Biden and the other defendants have denied any wrongdoing, but the plaintiffs last month reportedly said in a court filing that they were willing to drop their claims against White, who had provided exculpatory evidence as well as information that further implicated Biden and others.

(FreedomWire.org) – President Biden has said repeatedly, insistently, that he has had no knowledge of Hunter’s business dealings, and was not at all involved in them.

However, just before the 2020 presidential election, then-candidate Joe Biden agreed to cover over $800,000 of his son Hunter Biden’s bills, including legal bills that were associated with his shady overseas business deals. This per an email that came to light on Tuesday.

The email elucidating the details of the plan to pay for Hunter’s legal fees was from January 17, 2019, and it was from Hunter’s personal assistant at the time, Katie Dodge, and went to Linda Shapero, an accountant, according to the New York Post. The email went to Hunter’s uncle Robert Biden, as well.

The email said “I spoke with Hunter today regarding his bills. It is my understanding that Hunt’s dad will cover these bills in the short-term as Hunter transitions in his career. I have a list of the current bills of which I am aware. I have attached the list below. I am sure we will need to go over all of this to make a smooth transition. Many I can log into and change bank accounts or I can give you the logins. At any rate, I wanted to get the ball rolling,” Dodge wrote.

 Reports shows over $130,000 in legal fees to the firm Faegre Baker Daniels. $28,382 of that sum was allocated to BHR Restructuring, which likely stands for Bohai Harvest RST. This is a company in which Hunter held a 10 percent share through a side company. Additional fees were allocated for work done on other companies in which Hunter was involved.

Now People are questioning, Biden pays $800,000 for Hunter’s legal bill. BUT, he has never discussed his business with him?
