Eight NEW Biden Family Scandals ABC, CBS, NBC Are Hiding

November 14th, 2023 9:02 AM

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer’s Nov. 8 subpoena of Hunter and James Biden and Special Counsel David Weiss’s Nov. 7 congressional testimony actually forced the networks to — very briefly — break out of their rut of refusing to report on Biden family scandals. 

On November 8, all three network (ABC, CBS, NBC) evening news programs relayed the bombshell development but only spent 100 seconds total on it, and dutifully repeated the debunked White House line of there’s “no evidence” directly linking to the President. It was whisked away by the next day, as none of the network morning shows touched the story. 

Weiss’s closed-door testimony before Congress was also covered — barely. The November 7 edition of NBC Nightly News spent a scant 59 seconds on Weiss — which was still better than ABC and CBS. They did zilch on Weiss’s appearance before Congress.  

But for those very brief exceptions, the networks have continued their hiding of Biden family scandals over the last few months.

Some of the cases that have been censored in just the last month include the discovery of checks actually written out to President Joe Biden himself, something Biden’s supporters and Comer’s critics have been clamoring for and insisted didn’t exist. 

The following are eight new developments in the Biden family corruption scandal, over the past two months, the networks have censored:


Joe “Big Guy” Biden Got $40,000 Check From Brother James Via “Laundered” China Money



On November 1, the New York Post reported: 

President Biden received $40,000 in “laundered” funds from Chinese government-linked CEFC China Energy, according to a memo released Wednesday by the House Oversight Committee.

The 2017 transfer from first brother James Biden and his wife Sara to the future president allegedly involves the same business deal in which Joe Biden was called the “big guy” and penciled in for a 10% cut — and would be the first proven instance of the commander-in-chief getting a piece of his family’s foreign income.

The $40,000 went through a “complicated financial transaction” just weeks after first son Hunter Biden threatened his father’s wrath in a July 30, 2017, text message to a CEFC employee, the Republican-led Oversight Committee said in the memo.

The money ended up in Joe Biden’s bank account on Sept. 3, 2017, via a check labeled “loan repayment” from his younger brother, who partnered with Hunter in the venture.

“Remember when Joe Biden told the American people that his son didn’t make money in China?” Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) said in a video posted to X. “Well, not only did he lie about his son Hunter making money in China, but it also turns out that $40,000 in laundered China money landed in Joe Biden’s bank account in the form of a personal check.”

Comer, a leader of the House impeachment inquiry into Biden’s role in his relatives’ foreign dealings, said, “Even if this $40,000 check was a loan repayment from James Biden, it still shows how Joe benefited from his family cashing in on his name — with money from China no less.”

Joe Biden Used a Pseudonym on Over 82,000 E-Mails, Including One Notifying Hunter About Phone Call with Ukranian President 



On October 31, the New York Post reported: 

President Biden sent or received up to 82,000 pages worth of private emails while serving as Barack Obama’s vice president, the National Archives disclosed late Monday as part of a lawsuit brought by a conservative organization.

The Archives revealed that the trove of correspondence spanned all eight years of Biden’s vice presidency and included messages to or from three shadow email addresses: “robinware456@gmail.com,” “JRBWare@gmail.com” and “Robert.L.Peters@pci.gov,” according to a joint filing with the Georgia-based Southeastern Legal Foundation.

“The fact that as vice-president, Joe Biden sent 82,000 pages of emails from alias email addresses is shocking,” Southeastern Legal Foundation General Counsel Kimberly Hermann told The Post. “The American public has a right to know what is in those emails. SLF remains hopeful that now that we have confirmed that the emails exist, NARA will fulfill its legal obligation and produce them in a timely and transparent manner.”

It is unclear what topics are covered in most of the emails or who else was looped in on the messages. However, at least 10 missives were sent between May 18 and June 15, 2016, and cc’d first son Hunter Biden — with one on May 26 notifying Hunter of a scheduled phone call the next day between the vice president and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, the first son’s abandoned laptop shows.

Then-vice presidential aide John Flynn included Hunter on the missives in the months following Joe Biden’s threat in December 2015 to withhold $1 billion in US loan guarantees from Kyiv unless Poroshenko fired Ukrainian Prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma Holdings owner Mykola Zlochevsky.

The president’s son served on the Ukrainian natural gas company’s board from 2014 to 2019, earning an annual salary of roughly $1 million — despite having no prior experience in the energy industry. Ukraine’s parliament dismissed Shokin in March 2016.

U.S. Attorney Claims He Was Blocked During His Probe of Hunter, “Never In His Career” Seen Anything Like It


On October 30, the Wall Street Journal reported: 

House Republicans continue to unpack the Justice Department’s botched Hunter Biden probe, and evidence is mounting of interference from the top. The latest testimony comes from an Oct. 23 Judiciary Committee interview with former U.S. Attorney Scott Brady.

In January 2020, then Attorney General Bill Barr tapped Mr. Brady to vet information related to Ukrainian corruption, and to pass along credible material to offices with ongoing investigations. That included Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who for five years has been probing Hunter’s foreign business operations, including his work for the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma. Mr. Brady says in the transcript we’ve reviewed that FBI headquarters and Mr. Weiss’s office made this very difficult.

Mr. Brady describes a “reluctance on the part of the FBI to really do any tasking” related to “allegations of Ukrainian corruption broadly and then specifically anything that intersected with Hunter Biden and his role in Burisma.” He says “FBI Headquarters had to sign off on every assignment, no matter how small or routine,” and that this sometimes required “17 different people,” mostly at the headquarters level. Local agents had to “go pens down sometimes for 2 or 3 weeks at a time before they could re-engage,” he says. He’d “never in [his DOJ] career” seen anything like it, and on a “fairly regular” basis had to go to the deputy AG’s office for help.

Mr. Brady says his office was informed by “members of the Pittsburgh FBI team” that they had been instructed by headquarters not to “affirmatively share information” with the Brady team. He says he was “surprised” to learn from public reporting in October 2020 that the FBI had possessed Hunter’s laptop since 2019, since his team had asked the FBI for anything it had on Hunter and Burisma, and the laptop would have been “helpful.”

Biden-Appointed U.S. Attorney Martin Estrada Claims He Couldn’t Charge Hunter Because He Was “Resource-Strapped”  


On October 26, the New York Post reported: 

Los Angeles US Attorney Martin Estrada told lawmakers that he refused to “partner” with federal prosecutors from Delaware last year to charge first son Hunter Biden with tax fraud — saying his office was simply too “resource-strapped” to assign anyone to the case.

Estrada, an appointee of President Biden, confirmed he balked at charging his boss’s son with ducking taxes linked to foreign income in Tuesday testimony to the House Judiciary Committee, according to a transcript reviewed by The Post — partially confirming the claims of IRS whistleblowers.

DC US Attorney Matthew Graves, another Biden appointee, also recently confirmed to the panel that he declined Delaware US attorney David Weiss’ request to team up on charges, with Graves saying it would have been too difficult for his office to “get up to speed on everything.”

Weiss reportedly considered not charging Hunter Biden, now 53, at all after Graves and Estrada turned down his requests, then changed his mind when IRS supervisory agent Gary Shapley and case agent Joseph Ziegler came forward this year to allege irregularities in the investigation.

Joe Biden Got $200,000 Check From James Biden On Same Day His Brother Got Check For Same Amount From Hospital Firm 


On October 20, the New York Post reported: 

President Biden received a $200,000 check in 2018 from his younger brother James on the same day that he received the same amount from a US hospital chain by promising to secure a Mideast investor, bank records obtained by Congress show.

“This summer, Joe Biden said: ‘Where’s the money?’ Well, we found some,” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) said in a video posted Friday afternoon to X.

Comer said that James Biden wrote the check to his powerful brother as a “loan repayment,” without providing further context. “Even if this was a personal loan repayment, it’s still troubling that Joe Biden’s ability to be paid back by his brother depended on the success of his family’s shady financial dealings,” the chairman said.

James Biden received a total of $600,000 in loans from since-defunct rural hospital operator Americore Health in 2018.

The firm’s bankruptcy trustee said in a July 2022 court filing that James Biden “procured the $600,000.00 in loans from Americore … based upon representations that his last name, ‘Biden,’ could ‘open doors’ and that he could obtain a large investment from the Middle East based on his political connections.”

Form Shows FBI Knew Hunter’s Laptop Was Legit, Even Before the 2020 Election


On October 9, the Daily Caller reported:

The FBI knew the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop featured in the New York Post’s reporting ahead of the 2020 presidential election were real, according to a newly released FBI FD-302 form summarizing the bureau’s interview with Hunter Biden’s former business associate, Tony Bobulinski.

The FBI interviewed Bobulinski on Oct. 23, 2020 after the New York Post’s story contained emails from the Hunter Biden laptop archive Bobulinski was copied on, the FD-302 form states. Bobulinski told the FBI he knew the emails were legitimate and had records of the emails on multiple cell phones, the form asserts.

“In addition, the New York Post recently published Hunter Biden emails in which Bobulinski was copied. Bobulinski’s name was not redacted from the published emails, which put his name in the public domain and caused significant concern for his family’s safety,” the document reads. The FD-302 form’s contents were first reported by the New York Post. “Nonetheless, Bobulinski was aware that the emails published by the New York Post were legitimate because Bobulinski was copied on them and had records of the emails on his own cellular devices,” the document adds.

Joe Biden Names Hunter Crony to Head Agency That’s Supposed to Protect Whistleblowers, Like the Ones Who Alleged Interference in the Biden Investigation 


On October 4, the New York Post reported: 

President Biden selected an old legal colleague of his son Hunter Biden to helm the US Office of Special Counsel, whose primary purpose is protecting whistleblowers — like the ones who have alleged political interference in the five-year-old probe of the presidential scion.

Hampton Dellinger, nominated by Biden for the post of US Special Counsel Wednesday, worked on the Crisis Management and Government Response team at Boies Schiller Flexner in 2014. 

Hunter Biden tapped that firm to assist Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings in 2014 and had dinner with Dellinger and others in March that same year, emails from his abandoned laptop show. The younger Biden served on the board of Burisma from 2014 to 2019. It is unclear whether Dellinger did any legal work on Burisma’s behalf. 

Back in July, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), and other Republicans urged current Special Counsel Henry Kerner to probe claims of retaliation by IRS supervisory agent Gary Shapley and agent Joseph Ziegler. Those whistleblowers have accused the Justice Department of meddling and favoritism in the sprawling inquiry of Hunter Biden. 

“The president thumbed his nose at SSA Shapley and SA Zeigler with the nomination of his son’s former law partner to an agency overseeing their whistleblower cases,” Shapley’s legal team said in a statement to The Post. “Dellinger should immediately let Congress and the American people know that if he is confirmed, he will recuse himself from any involvement in the whistleblowers’ cases who have risked their careers to expose preferential treatment for the president’s son and the nominee’s former law partner.”

Joe Biden Met with Hunter’s Mexican Business Partners 


On September 26, the Washington Examiner reported: 

Hunter Biden appeared to receive help from his father on several occasions as he pursued business deals in Mexico during the last few years of Joe Biden’s vice presidency. The complicated business ventures included an effort by Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company that paid Hunter Biden for a board position, to buy up parts of a Mexican-owned energy conglomerate that was looking to privatize.

Hunter Biden and his business associates appeared to be interested in targeting Mexican investors since at least 2010. Among them were Carlos Slim and his son, Carlos Slim Jr.; the elder Slim, a Mexican billionaire, was at one point the wealthiest man in the world.

Miguel Aleman Velasco and Miguel Aleman Magnani also appeared to develop close business relationships with Hunter Biden and his business partners, particularly Jeff Cooper, one of Hunter Biden’s closest business associates at that time. Aleman Velasco was a former high-ranking Mexican politician, and his son, Aleman Magnani, was the president of Interjet, at the time a Mexican airline.

Hunter Biden, Cooper, and their former business partner, Devon Archer, appeared to lean on Aleman Magnani to help them explore business opportunities in Mexico, including how to profit off the privatization of Pemex, a state-owned oil and gas company in Mexico. Burisma appeared interested in bidding on assets that Pemex was preparing to sell.

In February 2014, Hunter Biden and Cooper arranged a lunch with then-Vice President Joe Biden at the White House, emails from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop show. Joe Biden met with both Aleman Velasco and Aleman Magnani, along with Cooper, at the White House for lunch and posed for pictures with them.
