    CNN Anchor Asks Biden to His Face About Criminal Charges for Hunter – Watch His Telling Response

    Published on

    President Joe Biden was actually asked a challenging question during an interview that aired Tuesday night on CNN by a media insider.

    According to Deadline, Jake Tapper, who started hosting “CNN Tonight” on Tuesday and will continue doing so through the midterm elections in November, wanted to start off his month-long assignment with a bang, so he aired an interview with the president of the United States.

    Putin and Russia, the economy, and whatever the Democrats claim to be running on were all topics covered in the interview. However, Tapper also made a light foray into a more personal subject that much of the legacy media has been attempting to avoid: the troubled life of the president’s son, Hunter Biden.

    “Our reporting, CNN’s reporting, and The Washington Post reporting suggests that prosecutors think they could — they have enough, to charge your son, Hunter, for tax crimes, and a false statement about a gun purchase.”

    “Personally and politically, how do you react to that?”  Tapper enquired.

    “Well, first of all, I’m proud of my son. This is a kid, who got — not a kid, he’s a grown man. And he got hooked on, like many families have had happened, hooked on drugs.”

    “He’s overcome that. He’s established a new life. He is, I’m confident that he is — what he says, and does, are consistent with what happens. And, for example, he wrote a book about his problems, and was straightforward about it. I’m proud of him.”

    “He came along and said — by the way, this thing about a gun? I didn’t know anything about it. But turns out that when he made application, to purchase a gun, what happened was he said — I guess, you get asked — I don’t guess. You get asked the question, ‘Are you on drugs? You use drugs?’ He said, ‘No.’ And he wrote about saying ‘No,’ in his book.”

    Hunter Biden had in fact discussed it in his book, according to Tapper. (Full disclosure: I haven’t read Hunter Biden’s book and don’t intend to; as a result, I’ll just accept Tapper’s word for it on this.)

    “So, I have great confidence in my son. I love him. And he’s on the straight and narrow, and he has been, for a couple years now, and I’m just so proud of him.” Biden said in conclusion. 

    Conveniently, CNN shared a portion of the interview on Twitter, but those up for the torture may watch the entire thing here or read the show’s transcript here.

    I won’t criticize the president for stating he loves his son and is proud of him, believe you me. Although none of my two boys is flawless, they have both committed errors, including some drug usage concerns. My family members have experienced similar difficulties in the past. You almost probably have family members suffering the same problems given how common drug misuse is in this nation. I have no issue with Joe Biden expressing that he is proud of his son for continuing the fight since it is the first thing that comes to mind when he thinks of him.

    What the president chose not to say in response to Tapper’s query intrigues me more.

    Recall that Tapper urged Biden to respond both personally and politically to the likelihood that Hunter Biden could be charged with two distinct felonies for tax fraud and purchasing a gun.

    In response, the president made no mention of what Tapper referred to as  “the tax crimes” – namely, Hunter Biden’s alleged failure to report foreign money to the IRS, as previously revealed by The Western Journal. Nothing. He quickly ignored it.

    Why? We can only guess, but there’s at least a good chance that it was because he believes his son is guilty and is aware of the county’s punishment for tax evasion.

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    “Any person who willfully attempts in any manner to evade or defeat any tax imposed by this title or the payment thereof shall, in addition to other penalties provided by law, be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not more than $100,000 ($500,000 in the case of a corporation), or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both, together with the costs of prosecution,”… CONTINUE READING…
