The White House sharply modified its tune on Monday, saying that Joe Biden “was by no means in enterprise” together with his son.
For almost three years, the president has insisted that he didn’t know something in any respect about Hunter’s dodgy international grift, not to mention do enterprise with him.
Why the change of tune? Because the lies are lastly beginning to collapse.
On Monday, The Post revealed upcoming bombshell testimony from Hunter Biden’s ex-biz companion Devon Archer, who says the primary son threw his then-VP dad on speaker throughout shady enterprise calls as many as two dozen occasions simply in Archer’s presence.
Archer says the president didn’t all the time understand he was on speakerphone.
Even that’s doubtful, however assuming it’s true, Biden — a sitting vp — certainly knew what Hunter was doing typically and did nothing to cease it.
And if the president and his media lackeys have been prepared to lie so blatantly for 3 years, why ought to we imagine something he says on the topic now because the waters lap nearer to the White House garden?
Then there’s Hunter himself, painted as a poor little wealthy boy in sure corners of the media.
He’s an addict, his defenders whine.
And the imply ol’ Republicans received’t cease choosing on him!
No: Hunter, like Joe, knew precisely what he was doing.
It’s obviously apparent what he was attempting to promote by ringing up his pop: affect.
Remember, these calls occurred when Joe was vp: One in December 2015 featured Hunter seemingly attempting to assist his then-employer, Ukrainian vitality firm Burisma.
An exec there one month earlier had explicitly demanded he use his clout to shut down a corruption probe into the agency.
Burisma had employed Hunter onto its board at a mind-boggling $83,000 per 30 days, regardless that he had no related expertise or expertise. Just the connection to Dad.
Owner Mykola Zlochevsky — who was on the December name — needed some bang for his buck.
And Zlochevsky, per an FBI informant, claimed he was compelled to pay every Biden, father and son, a $5 million bribe.
He says he’s acquired audio recordings of Joe and Hunter, together with financial institution data and different proof, to show it.
And it positive appears to be like like Hunter delivered: The prosecutor trying into Burisma was fired a number of months after this illicit phoner.
So don’t let the media silence round Archer’s testimony idiot you: Indeed, that simply exhibits how damaging it’s.
Recall that the identical factor occurred when the FBI doc alleging Biden took that bribe from Zlochevsky turned public, and when The Post’s Miranda Devine’s reported solely on Gal Luft alleging bigtime Biden household Mafia-like corruption.
It’s wagon-circling time for the media, as its members look to guard a popular asset: Joe.
Rep. Jim Comer (R-Ky.), Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) & Co. are proper to press unrelentingly right here.
Hunter’s a sleaze at finest and his father, now president, has lied and lied and lied about his involvement.
Without this effort from Congress, the American folks won’t ever know the reality of how deep and the way excessive the rot goes.
