Joe Biden believes in his son. He said on Wednesday that he is proud of Hunter after it was revealed federal prosecutors have publicly launched a probe into the younger Biden’s taxes.
While the mainstream media chose to essentially ignore the story of what might have been found on the laptop computer of Hunter Biden’s by a computer repair store in November, the justice department was required to not pursue any investigations until after the election. But now that the election is in the rear-view mirror, the Feds are quite interested in peering at Biden’s tax records to see if any red flags are there. They already have issued subpoenas and are seeking interviews, so if there were crimes committed, there’s little doubt they will find them.
What the Justice Department seems to be especially interested in finding out is what were his Chinese business deals all about, and less concerned about the contents of the infamous laptop. Biden has been involved in business deals in foreign countries as far back as when his father was Barack Obama’s vice president, and he has been accused of profiting from his father’s connections.
At the very least, this is a distraction for the Biden-Harris transition team, and it has the potential to be something much worse. They released a statement Wednesday supporting the younger Biden and talking about the negativity he faced when the New York Post broke the story of what was allegedly found on his laptop. “President-elect Biden is deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger.”
