Joe Biden was Vice President of the United States from January 2009 until January 2017.
Many Democrats consider Biden to be a frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination for the 2020 bid for the White House.
Politicians are required to make full financial disclosures of every source of income they have.
Biden has complied with that mandate and so far, appears squeaky clean.
Should Congress Remove Biden from Office?
However, according to author Peter Schweizer’s new book, Biden’s son Hunter Biden has been receiving large sums of money from the Chinese government and a Ukrainian company in addition from an LLC via a Swiss bank known for money laundering.
Schweizer points out that although Joe Biden has to make full financial disclosure, his son Hunter does not.
(American Thinker) – For Democrats, Joe Biden is the top seed in the race to unseat President Trump in 2020.
He’s come a long way from his nutty-uncle gaffe-a-thon persona, and with a slew of medals and honors from President Obama, he presents the very picture of the respectable modern statesman. He showed up at a lot of foreign funerals for heads of state. He milked the sympathy factor over his son’s death from cancer. He wore a suit. He projected gravitas. Yet he also manages to have a hard-hat appeal and a mainstream-Democratic-ideological image, which seems to be the right formula for Democrats winning in most of their races these days.
No surprise, he’s the Democratic frontrunner in polls among Democrats with a seven-point lead, campaigning even now with fire to burn, because he’s convinced he made a mistake in not running back in 2016.
Except there’s some dirty laundry now that’s getting some airing.
Biden, it turns out, is loaded with dirty deals spread out the “legal” way, among his family members, which has made his tribe immensely rich. What’s more, he’s doing it the swamp way, which keeps the long arm of the law out of the picture, based on deftly navigating the political loopholes, and a sharkily deft capacity to use advantages. According to the indefatigable investigative reporter Peter Schweizer, who’s written a book about this:..
It doesn’t surprise me to hear about the $3 million from the Ukraine.
Remember Obama’s stimulus package back in 2009?
Joe Biden sent $20 million of taxpayer Stimulus money to a close friend in Ukraine to help start a luxury car dealership. The money was considered a loan, but recall that the Stimulus was purposed to help spur America’s economy, not that of the Ukraine.
If Biden does become a serious contender for the White House, hopefully, someone will call for an investigation into the financial dealings of his son Hunter and if Biden himself benefits from those foreign funds.
