11 Brand New Biden Family Scandals the Networks Are CENSORING

May 11th, 2023 11:12 AM

On Wednesday House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer led a press conference that extensively detailed how the Biden family and their business associates may have received more than $10 million from foreign nationals during Joe Biden’s term as Vice President.   

The charges of influence peddling by the Biden family are so serious and startling that it could have dominated the broadcast network (ABC, CBS, NBC) evening and morning shows. So how much time did the Big Three nets (on their Wednesday evening and Thursday morning shows) actually devote to the press conference led by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer? 

Zero seconds. 

Simply stunning. 



There was a brief moment back in April, when it looked like ABC, CBS, NBC were going to actually do their job and cover the story, but it only lasted four days. 

Beginning on April 19 the networks (briefly covered) the news that The Wall Street Journal reported that a whistleblower who works in the IRS’s criminal investigation division came forward to reveal that the Biden administration is allegedly giving Hunter Biden preferential treatment and has tried to stonewall the investigation into the alleged tax crimes Hunter committed. Then on April 20, the New York Post reported that now-Secretary of State Antony Blinken was the catalyst behind the debunked and infamous October 2020 letter from former intelligence officials dismissing the surfacing of Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation.

These incredible revelations actually woke ABC, CBS, NBC out of their Joe Biden-esque sleepy slumber to devote, on their evening, morning and Sunday roundtable shows, a total of 24 minutes, 56 seconds to the Biden family corruption story from April 19 to April 23. 

However, the networks then quickly dropped the topic and with the exception of CBS correspondent Major Garrett — on the May 11 CBS Mornings — snidely remarking that all Donald Trump “talks about is Hunter Biden’s laptop,” they hadn’t uttered Hunter’s name in 18 days.  

It’s not like there weren’t brand new stories to cover. From the very serious (Grassley, Comer allege bribery scheme involving Biden and demand documents from FBI) and to the salacious (White House pressed on Biden’s refusal to recognize Hunter’s love child as son appears in court for child support case).

The following are 11 brand new developments in the Biden family corruption scandal the networks have censored:


Biden Family Got $1 Million From “Corrupt” Romanian Oligarch

On May 10, the New York Post reported the following: 

The House Oversight Committee revealed Wednesday that more than $1 million flowed from a crooked Romanian businessman to the Biden family while then-Vice President Joe Biden paid lip service to cleaning up corruption in the Eastern European nation.

The revelation, which committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) will lay out at a morning press conference, expands public knowledge of one of first son Hunter Biden’s lesser-known engagements with dodgy associates in countries where his father held sway.

In a 36-page memo, the committee cites subpoenaed bank records to describe how $3 million was allegedly transferred from Gabriel Popoviciu’s Bladon Enterprises Limited to Robinson Walker LLC — controlled by Hunter’s business partner Rob Walker — between November 2015 and May 2017.

Of the $3 million, the memo says, roughly one-third — $1,038,627.08 — was transferred to bank accounts belonging to Hunter Biden, first daughter-in-law Hallie Biden, and an unnamed Biden family member.

The procedure mirrors a similar division of a roughly $3 million haul in early 2017 from Chinese firm CEFC China Energy. About a third of that amount was shared among Hunter, Hallie, first brother James Biden and a fourth, unidentified Biden, according to an Oversight Committee memo from March.

The unidentified Biden account or accounts receiving the Romanian proceeds got $80,000 over four transactions.

After the prior committee memo noting an unidentified Biden received CEFC proceeds, Hunter Biden’s legal team issued a statement denying anyone other than the three named Bidens were paid.

CIA Fast-Tracked Letter That Falsely Claimed Biden’s Laptop Was Part of Russian Operation

On May 9, the New York Post’s Miranda Devine reported: 

The CIA conspired with former acting director Mike Morell and the Biden campaign to produce a letter falsely claiming that emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop were Russian disinformation — and solicited signatures from at least one former intelligence official, a staff report from the House Judiciary Committee is expected to reveal Wednesday.

Morell told the CIA’s Prepublication Classification Review Board (PCRB) that he needed the letter approved as an unusual “rush job” that day, October 19, 2020, in an effort to provide then-candidate Joe Biden ammunition in the final presidential debate to discredit The Post’s report on the Biden emails which had been published five days earlier.

That day, a CIA employee working for the PCRB solicited a signature for Morell’s letter from former CIA analyst David Cariens, according to a written statement by Cariens to the Subcommittees on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, and Intelligence.

Cariens explained that he had been speaking with the PCRB about the prepublication review of his own memoir and during that phone call the CIA employee “asked” him if he would sign the draft letter.

“When the person in charge of reviewing my book called to say it was approved with no changes, I was told about the draft letter. The person asked me if I would be willing to sign…I agreed to sign.”

Cariens told his wife, Janice Cariens, also a former CIA officer, about the letter and she also agreed to sign.

Morell directed the PCRB that “[t]his is a rush job, as it needs to get out as soon as possible.”

Morell told fellow signatory John Brennan, former CIA director, that he wanted the letter released before Biden’s October 22, 2020, presidential debate against Donald Trump: “Trying to give the campaign, particularly during the debate…a talking point to push back on Trump.”

Sen. Ron Johnson Claims There is Proof That Hunter Paid for International Sex Trafficking Ring 



On May 9, Real Clear Politics reported: 

Sen. Ron Johnson said Tuesday during an interview with Harris Faulkner on FOX News that Congressional Republicans can prove that Hunter Biden paid an international sex trafficking ring for prostitutes during a time when he was being financially supported by his father.

“We have the evidence that Hunter Biden paid tens of thousands of dollars for prostitutes that were sex trafficked through an international sex trafficking ring.”

SEN. RON JOHNSON: Senator Grassley and I, in our September 2020 report, laid out as much evidence as anybody would need to lay out that the Biden family is corrupt, that President Biden would be highly compromised. But the corrupt media ignored it and censored it and we elected President Biden. So here we are.

One thing we don’t talk enough about. I know President Biden is so proud of his son. We have the evidence that Hunter Biden paid for -- paid tens of thousands of dollars for prostitutes that were sex trafficked through an international sex trafficking ring. Yes, ick.

And President Biden during a four or five month period offered to pay for $100,000 of Hunter Biden’s bills when he was spending tens of thousands of dollars on these women who are sex trafficked. Now, that is at a minimum morally reprehensible and wrong. And the president is defending that and the media isn’t even looking into it?

It is grotesque but the media doesn’t concentrate on it. We had that in our report. We had the financial transactions proving it. James Comer does the same thing. But it is so icky and reprehensible that people don't want to talk about it. It is galling to hear the president talk about how proud he is of Hunter. He enables this. He enables it by propping up his son both in term of those types of words as well as financially. It is really pretty sick.

New York Post Banned by White House from Biden Event as Hunter Indictment Looms



On May 8, the New York Post reported: 

The White House press office barred The Post from attending President Biden’s only daytime public event Monday as federal prosecutors near a decision on criminally charging first son Hunter Biden for tax fraud and other crimes.

The Post has closely covered the president’s ties to his relatives’ foreign dealings and first reported in October 2020 on files from Hunter’s abandoned laptop that link Joe Biden to ventures in China and Ukraine.

Biden, who falsely characterized The Post’s reporting as Russian disinformation, appeared with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to talk about airline policies in the White House-adjacent Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Biden ultimately took no shouted questions at the venue, which houses the set of a “fake” White House and about 50 theater-style seats for reporters — about 20 of which were empty Monday.

Ex-CIA Chief Morell Misled Signers of Letter That Dismissed Hunter Biden Laptop Story

On May 7, the New York Post’s Miranda Devine reported: 

The ex-CIA chief who wrote the letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials falsely claiming that emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop published by The Post before the 2020 election were Russian disinformation misled his fellow signatories when he assured them that he would “clear the statement with the Publication Review Board at CIA” the following day.

In an October 18, 2020, email obtained by The Post, Michael Morell asks his fellow spooks, including former CIA Directors John Brennan, Leon Panetta and Mike Hayden, to sign the letter, explaining that he and former CIA agent Marc Polymeropoulos had “drafted the attached because we believe the Russians were involved in some way in the Hunter Biden email issue and because we think Trump will attack Biden on the issue at this week’s debate and we want to give the VP a talking point to use in response.”

Morell asks the CIA alumni in the group to “highlight your Russia work” in their affiliations when they sign the letter and assures them that he will secure pre-publication clearance from the CIA “tomorrow.”

But the letter was published by Politico the following day, Oct. 19, 2020, leaving no time for the required pre-publication security review by the CIA, a lifelong obligation for all former agency employees, and a process that could take several months.

It also omitted the boilerplate disclaimer required by the CIA to be included in any such intelligence assessment, which would have declared: “All statements of fact, opinion, or analysis expressed are those of the author and do not reflect the official positions or views of the Central Intelligence Agency.”

Morell had no time for the official security review by the CIA, because, as he explained in his email, the imperative was to provide a “talking point” for then-candidate Joe Biden in the final campaign debate against incumbent President Donald Trump in just three days’ time.

“Either he lied or somebody at the CIA violated their own policies,” says lawyer Tim Parlatore, who has spent the past year pursuing the 51 intelligence officials on behalf of Trump.

Hunter Biden’s Ex-Business Partner Devon Archer Encouraged to Release Dirt on Bidens, to Avoid Jail 

On May 7, the New York Post’s Devine reported: 

As Hunter Biden faces a potential criminal indictment this week, his former best friend Devon Archer will make his last bid to avoid jail Tuesday when his appeal is heard in a courtroom in Lower Manhattan. 

As he grows increasingly despondent, friends with knowledge of Hunter’s thinking are telling Archer to accept that the Bidens have thrown him under the bus and that a last-minute presidential pardon has been ruled out. 

They have urged him to save himself by using the only currency he has left — his knowledge of the Biden family influence-peddling scheme, for which he had a front-row seat for four years during Joe Biden’s vice presidency. 

Archer was present at meetings Hunter arranged for his foreign business partners to meet with his father or talk to him on the phone.

Biden Claims Hunter “Has Done Nothing Wrong” Ahead of Possible Charges





On May 5, the New York Post reported the following: 

President Biden declared on Friday that his son Hunter Biden “has done nothing wrong” as federal prosecutors near a decision on whether to charge the first son with tax and gun crimes.

Biden’s defense of Hunter came in a rare sit-down interview with MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle that aired Friday night at 10 p.m. 

“My son has done nothing wrong. I trust him. I have faith in him and it impacts my presidency by making me feel proud of him,” Biden, 80, told Ruhle when asked about how the first son being charged would impact his presidency. 

Delaware US Attorney David Weiss, who is handling the Justice Department’s four-year-long investigation into Hunter Biden, is reportedly close to deciding on whether to charge the president’s son. Weiss is reportedly considering seeking an indictment against Hunter for felony and misdemeanor tax charges and for allegedly lying on a federal gun purchasing form.

White House and Hunter Biden’s Team Clash Over Defense Strategies

On May 5, the New York Post reported:

Hunter Biden’s advisers are clashing with Joe Biden’s White House over the first son’s legal defense strategy amid ongoing congressional and federal investigations into his financial affairs.

The latest flashpoint is Hunter’s proposed creation of a legal defense fund that would help pay for the 53-year-old’s high-priced lawyers, among them longtime Democratic fixer Abbe Lowell.

Axios reports that the fund could complicate Hunter’s efforts to ward off House Oversight Committee Republicans investigating the Biden family’s influence-peddling abroad — especially if contributions come from foreign entities.

“For this fund to work, it must be extraordinarily transparent and even restrictive by prohibiting foreign citizens and registered lobbyists from contributing,” a former senior adviser to Attorney General Merrick Garland told the outlet.

“Without these type of guardrails, the fund will be a legitimate headache for the White House.”

Axios also reported that roles at the fund have already been floated to some — including Richard Painter, who served as chief White House ethics lawyer under former President George W. Bush. Painter declined to comment when asked by Axios if he had been approached for a role, saying: “I get lots of calls from lots of people.”

Ex-CIA Chief Came Up with Hunter Laptop “Disinfo” Letter to Be Used as “Talking Point” for Debate

On May 5, the New York Post reported: 

The ex-CIA chief who wrote the letter signed by 51 former intelligence officials attempting to discredit The Post’s report on Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop told another former top intelligence official that he was drafting it as a “talking point” for Joe Biden to use during a debate with President Donald Trump.

Former acting CIA Director Michael Morell told fellow former CIA boss John Brennan in an Oct. 19, 2020, email — obtained by Just the News — that he was attempting to give Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign some ammunition to “push back on Trump” during the debate as he urged Brennan to sign on to the letter calling Hunter Biden’s laptop a possible Russian disinformation operation. 

“Can I add your name to this list?” Morell asks Brennan in the email. 

“Trying to give the campaign, particularly during the debate on [Oct. 22, 2020], a talking point to push back on Trump on this issue,” Morell explains, admitting the letter was to help Biden during his showdown with Trump. 

Brennan responded: “Ok, Michael, add my name to the list. Good initiative. Thanks for asking me to sign on.” 

The smoking-gun email exchange shows that Brennan knew Morell’s political motivation before he signed on to the letter.

Grassley, Comer Demand FBI Documents on Bribery Scheme Involving Joe Biden 



On May 3, CBSNews.com reported: 

Two top congressional Republicans say they want to know what, if any, information the FBI has about an alleged bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden, while the White House accuses the lawmakers of an “unfounded political attack.”

House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer and Sen. Chuck Grassley, of Iowa, say a whistleblower has provided information about the alleged scheme, and they have issued a subpoena to FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding a document that they say contains information about the allegation.

In their letter to Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, Grassley and Comer said that it had come to their attention that “the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) possess an unclassified FD-1023 form that describes an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions.”

“It has been alleged that the document includes a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed as well as its purpose,” their letter said. 

Grassley, in a joint press release with Comer described the FD-1023 form as "an unclassified internal document." The FD-1023 is an FBI record of an interaction with a confidential human source.

The subpoena to Wray orders him to produce all FD-1023 forms, “including within any open, closed, or restricted access case files, created or modified in June 2020, containing the term ‘Biden’.” 

Comer and Grassley said in their letter they believe there is enough “specificity” in the allegation to determine whether it's true, but “it remains unclear what steps, if any, were taken to investigate the matter.”

Hunter Appears In Court for Child Support Case, WH Refuses to Recognize Child

On May 2, the New York Post reported: 

President Biden’s failure to acknowledge his seventh grandchild — who was born out of wedlock — was questioned at a White House press briefing Tuesday, a day after first son Hunter Biden appeared in court trying to reduce his child support payments to 4-year-old Navy Joan Roberts.

“I wanted to ask about the trial going on in Arkansas with Hunter Biden and the child support,” the Daily Mail’s Emily Goodin said.

“Are the president and first lady monitoring that and how come they haven’t acknowledged the seventh grandchild?” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre quickly shut down the line of questioning, saying: “I’m not gonna speak to that from here.” Veteran journalist James Rosen of Newsmax tried to follow up by shouting, “Why not?” but Jean-Pierre ignored the question and called on a different reporter.

Biden, 80, has consistently snubbed his granddaughter, who turns five on Nov. 29, while doting on his other grandchildren — including Beau, Hunter’s 3-year-old son by second wife Melissa Cohen.

The president’s six other grandchildren were born within wedlock and each year their names are written on Christmas stockings displayed on a White House mantle — with Roberts omitted from the lineup.

Last week, Joe Biden told a youngster on the White House lawn for a “take your child to work day” event that he has just six grandchildren.

“I have six grandchildren. And I’m crazy about them. And I speak to them every single day. Not a joke,” the president said. “Matter of fact, I just got finished going through the calls. And only one of them answered the phone. “But at least I got to leave a message.”

Biden gave brief biographies of his six other grandchildren, then told his elementary school-aged audience, “They’re crazy about me because I pay so much attention to them.”

Navy Roberts, by contrast, reportedly has received very little love from her paternal relatives since Hunter Biden acknowledged her as his own in response to a paternity suit from former stripper Lunden Roberts, now 32.

The networks have totally and completely taken the Biden family scandals off-the-table. The conclusion is clear. If it doesn’t help advance their left-leaning agenda the Big Three will ignore the topic and hope Americans don’t notice and/or forget about it.
