President Biden’s fortunate in a perverse manner: The chaos his insurance policies trigger overseas helps take the warmth off him and his household at dwelling.
His coddling of Iran arrange Hamas’ horrific assault on Israel; the ensuing conflict has pushed out of the headlines main information on son Hunter’s influence-peddling operation, together with the primary arduous proof of the way it put money in Joe’s pocket.
But Rep. Jim Comer, who helms the continued impeachment inquiry in opposition to the president, remains to be on the job.
“This goes to be an enormous week,” the Kentucky Republican mentioned over the weekend.
He hinted that but extra ugly monetary revelations about the Biden household mafia might be forthcoming — alongside extra subpoenas.
This is past mandatory, particularly given the newest doc reveal from Comer’s House Oversight Committee.
Turns out brother James paid Joe Biden $40,000 in cash that originated with Chinese vitality firm CEFC earlier than following a twisty path by means of a sequence of Biden family-owned entities.
The examine disproves the repeated declare on the left that Biden himself by no means instantly benefited from Hunter’s shady dealing.
And that’s true even when it was a real James-to-Joe mortgage compensation, as Biden’s flacks and media lapdogs insist. (The prez refuses to supply proof.)
James had the cash to repay the “mortgage” as a result of he and Hunter cashed in large on the household title.
And this comes on prime of all the opposite copious documentation the committee’s revealed, proving many times that the president lied at each step in regards to the extent of his monetary involvement with Hunter.
New House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) has but to formally again a Biden impeachment.
But his election implies that the House GOP can take that motion if mandatory.
How a lot injury, we surprise, does the truth that Biden is visibly, indelibly caught up in his son’s corruption do to his credibility at this significant second? (True, he didn’t have a lot left.)
But count on Democrats and the media institution to go from a “no smoking gun” protection to: “How dare they assault the president over years-old occasions when he’s now dealing with not one however two open wars?”
Probably with a subtext of “Do they actually need Kamala Harris taking on now?”
Fact is, although, what it actually provides as much as is but extra motive for him to drop out of the 2024 race whereas his celebration nonetheless has time to decide on a brand new standard-bearer.
After all, the celebration is already turning on him.
