Election 2020: Senate Report Indicates Hunter Biden Got Wired Millions by Russian Woman Close to Putin. Nothing to See Folks.
40 days to go before the election that will decide America's fate.
If a candidate’s son took in millions from crooked Russians but the media doesn’t want to report it, does it make a sound?
Seems the only person whose income rose during the Obama-Biden years was Hunter Biden. The Senate Homeland Security Committee issued a devastating report Wednesday detailing Hunter Biden foreign financial shenanigans … while his father was VP and point man for many of those same foreign lands.
We already knew about the millions Hunter made from the corrupt Burisma gas company and his father’s efforts to stop the prosecutor investigating Ukrainian gas giant. We also knew about the $1.5 billion China popped into Hunter’s hedge fund after Hunter and his dad paid a visit.
The report goes further. For example, into Hunter’s relationships with individuals linked to the Chinese military. In fact, the Senate found $4 million in “questionable financial transactions” with foreign nationals “connected to the Chinese Communist Party & the People’s Liberation Army.”
Let’s face it, if Ivanka Trump was given a fortune cookie by a Chinese military official, Democrats would demand a criminal investigation. If her dad ate the cookie he’d be impeached for destruction of evidence.
Dough from the Russians
Then there’s Russia, Russia, Russia. For three years, the media insisted the Trumps were in financial cahoots with the Russians. Turns out, according to the report, “Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.” And right as Joe was starting to deal with Russia’s rival Ukraine. Convenient timing. Where’s Mueller? Where’s Peter Strzok? Where’s Rachel Maddow?
Don Jr. spent ten minutes talking about the Magnitsky Act with a Russian lawyer and literally a federal case was made out of it. MSNBC and CNN didn’t shut up about it. Hunter pockets $3.5 million from a Russian politician’s wife while is dad is VP and all we get is crickets.
Greg Price found something amazing: “Just went through some of the news reports on Hunter Biden. The stories from WaPo, NYT, CNN, NPR, The Hill, Daily Beast, NBC News, WSJ, CBS News, and Forbes did not mention anything about the $3.5 million wire transfer to him from the widow of the former mayor of Moscow.”

Hunter and the Sex Traffickers
Our Hunter’s tale gets sleazier. According to the report, Biden’s son seemed cozy with folks involved in sex trafficking. Quote: “Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and who appear to be linked to an “Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.” We can bet the money wasn’t to do some painting around the house.
Just how compromised was Joe Biden and National Security by all these activities? Can anyone say “potential blackmail”?
You’d think reporters would grill Joe about all this as he left for a campaign event in North Carolina. That’s what reporters do, right? Wrong. They asked him if he was prepared for next week’s debate.
Joe’s Just Starting to Really Heavily Prepare for His Debate
Oddly enough, Biden said he was going to be prepping “really heavily” starting today. Just five days out.
If I’m Trump on that debate stage, I’m hanging Wednesday’s report on Biden like a cowbell: “Your administration started the Russian witch hunt. As a father, I want to know why my son had to go through two years of hell for a five-minute meeting with a Russian lawyer while your son pockets $3.5 million from Russian politicians and not a peep?”
You can bet Trump will bring it up. But will debate moderators? Or any reporter?
Joe has been asked before about the potential conflict of interest of Hunter scoring millions with the corrupt Burisma while his dad was supposedly dealing with corruption in Ukraine.

Touchy. And what about that anger.
Packing the Court
Speaking of anger. Democrats upset that Donald Trump might actually fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, are calling for the Senate to “pack the court” should they take over. That means simply adding more Supreme Court justices.
Joe Biden has long rejected the idea. In fact, he did so during the primaries. However, now that the leftists who now run him are upset, he’s gone mum.
When asked Monday about whether he still is against court packing, Biden refused to answer the question. Bizarrely, he said he was going to remain mum because Trump “always tries to shift the subject.” Huh? This IS the subject, and your party brought it up.
Biden said that if he gave an answer, then the “whole debate” is going to be about quote, “What Biden said or didn’t say.” You mean, if you reversed your position you might have to explain to voters why? The NERVE of VOTERS!!!!!!

Congressional candidate Kim Klacik of Baltimore is back with another amazing “come walk with me” ad. This time in white heels. It ends with her being joined by scores of women in red.
Tens of millions of you have shared the struggle of black people in Baltimore. You cared about our black lives more than our own leaders.
They have done nothing for us.
Now they can’t hide.
We are the change.

Inspiring stuff. As a native Marylander, may I suggest Klacik is the best thing to hit Baltimore since Old Bay seasoning. Or at least Cal Ripkin.
Prince Harry and wife Megan have weighed in on the 2020 election, urging people to “Not only reflect, but act.” It’s the “most important election of our lifetime,” they say. They also throw out warnings about “hate speech” and “misinformation” — the new slang for “anything the left disagrees with or doesn’t want you to know.”
I’m sorry, your highness, I can’t hear you over the sound of us WINNING THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR.
Finally, Joe Biden had high praise for Kamala Harris Wednesday, telling radio host Steve Harvey she’s ready to be President Day one. If, in his words, “somebody pushed me off a roof or something.”
In related news, Kamala Harris says Joe has already agreed to help her put up Christmas lighting. (We jest.)
