President Joe Biden needs to confront some hard truths regarding his connection with his infamously misbehaving child. I know every father wants to stand up for his offspring.
Robert Hunter Biden has spent the majority of his adult life as a morally depraved, drug-addicted, failson wastrel who is scarcely qualified for his current post, which, last time we checked, required being a not-quite-starving starving artist.
Normally, only the Biden family would be concerned about this. The issue is that while Hunter was making deals with significant business players in China, Ukraine, and Central America, he was also serially filming himself having sex with sex workers and searching his carpets for traces of crack and/or parmesan cheese. He was almost certainly bringing nothing to the table other than his last name and its vicinity to power and authority.
The president has attempted to downplay this by claiming to love Hunter like a father but denying ever discussing Hunter’s business affairs with him. No one would fault him for the first portion, but there is overwhelming proof that the second claim is almost certainly false.
The chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee has stated he is prepared to begin an investigation into Hunter if and when the Republicans gain control of the House of Representatives following the 2022 midterm elections, which they appear likely to do. The investigation would likely end up going to the president.
Republicans “want to launch rapid investigations on day one into your handling of Afghanistan, the border; they want to look into some of your cabinet officials, they want to investigate you, they may even want to investigate your son,” CBS News’ Wendy Cordes said in a question to the president during a Wednesday White House press briefing.
“What’s your message to Republicans who are considering investigating your family and particularly your son Hunter’s business dealings?” she asked.
“Lots of luck in your senior year, as my coach used to say,” Biden replied.
“Look, I think the American public want us to move on and get things done for them. And I heard … that Republicans were saying that the former president said ‘How many times are you gonna impeach Biden?’”
“I think the American people will look at all of that for what it is, it’s just almost comedy.”

Wait, serial impeachment of a president when there’s no hope of conviction in the Senate is “almost comedy?” Stop the presses, you media outlets that still have presses: Biden just admitted impeaching Trump twice after cursory, made-for-TV hearings was “almost comedy.” About time, I say.
As for business dealings involving the president’s son, nobody has seriously proposed summary impeachment yet. Simple nepotism isn’t illegal, after all. What they have promised to do is to look into his financial dealings, and presumably to do so with more even-handedness than the Democrats have with their Jan. 6 kangaroo court farce.
“We’re prepared to subpoena Hunter Biden,” Rep. James Comer, a Kentucky Republican set to take over as chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, told CBS News. “We would certainly hope that he would want to come before the committee and clear his name.” CONTINUE READING…
