Progressive mainstream media will play its part in trying to keep the focus of the fake impeachment inquiry on a phone call and a whistleblower’s complaint. In doing so, they will also avoid talking about Democratic corruption associated with Ukraine, including but not limited to Joe and Hunter Biden’s string of suspicious actions and circumstances. But eventually, something’s going to give. Pressure will mount as story after story is reported by conservative media while being ignored by their progressive counterparts at CNN, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and the NY Times.
There are honest journalists out there, even among progressives, who can only ignore the obvious for so long before they have to go off script and call out the Democrats. One such journalist is Peter Schweizer, an expert on government corruption. This whole Biden-Ukraine mess is right up his alley and the NY Times surprisingly printed his story about the clearly shady dealings the Bidens had with Ukraine and China.
Is the NY Times’ shield coming down? Are they experiencing a random moment of lucid journalistic principles? Was the presence of a different scandal involving Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell the required attack on a Republican necessary for justifying printing the story? Or, is it simply the fact that there are no laws currently on the books that would make Hunter Biden’s cushy job in Ukraine illegal enough to take a swipe at the (former) Democratic presidential frontrunner?
Schweizer, a champion for ending government corruption at home and abroad, wrote the book on the matter: “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends”
Here’s the story:
With the Russian invasion of Crimea in 2014, Joe Biden became point person in Ukraine as well. That same year, Hunter Biden landed a board position with the Ukrainian energy giant Burisma Holdings. Despite having no background in energy or Ukraine, the vice president’s son was paid as much as $50,000 a month, according to financial records. (He left the board in early 2019.)
Why would someone with so little experience be able to command such enormous payments? Joe Biden recently claimed, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.” But Hunter Biden admitted to The New Yorker that on one occasion, they had in fact discussed his work for Burisma: “Dad said, ‘I hope you know what you are doing,’ and I said, ‘I do.’” Moreover, a representative for BHR Partners has said that Hunter Biden introduced his father to one of the company’s founders during their December 2013 China trip.
Anyone who believes Hunter Biden would have landed such an opportunity if his dad wasn’t Vice President of the United States is delusional. Anyone who heard what Joe Biden said to the Council on Foreign Relations and claims they don’t smell anything fishy is being dishonest. These dots are not difficult to connect, even for Democrats.
The NY Times is starting to wonder. Americans should also be focusing on the real issues with the Ukrainian scandal. They were clearly pressured to act on behalf of a U.S. politician. But it wasn’t President Trump. The Bidens should be the ones in the hot seat.
