These Five Scandals Could Sink a Joe Biden Presidency

Breitbart’s Nick Nolte argues that there are four scandals that will result in Joe Biden being impeached, should he win in November. As of right now, it appears unlikely that the GOP will take back the House, meaning that impeachment is extremely unlikely, but if he wins, Nolte is correct that upon taking office, “his administration will be bogged down by legitimate investigations into his actual and credibly suspected wrongdoing, corruption, self-dealing, and sexual misconduct.”
I’ve taken Nolte’s list and expanded on it below.
5. The Questionable Family Business
Politicians using their power to enrich their families is nothing new, but Peter Schweizer described Joe Biden as “the king of the sweetheart deal, with no less than five family members benefiting from his largesse, favorable access and powerful position for commercial gain.” These sweetheart deals include foreign partners and sometimes taxpayer dollars. Biden’s brother James often accompanied Senator Joe Biden on overseas congressional delegation trips and White House functions while he was vice president. “Sometimes, James’ White House visits dovetailed with his overseas business dealings, and his commercial opportunities flourished during his brother’s tenure as vice president,” explained Schweizer. Despite having no experience in construction, James was named executive vice president of HillStone International (a subsidiary of the huge construction management firm, Hill International) less than three weeks after the president of the company visited the White House in 2010.
Other beneficiaries of Joe Biden’s political career include his brother Frank, his son-in-law Howard Krein, his sister Valerie, and, of course, his son Hunter—but I’ll talk about him later.
4. Shady China Connections
Biden’s China problem is something of an open secret. He’s been notable soft on China for years, even after the coronavirus pandemic. Why? His family has profited significantly due to business dealings with the Chinese government. “In 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Less than two weeks later, Hunter Biden’s firm inked a $1 billion private equity deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China,” explained Peter Schweizer in the New York Post last year. “The deal was later expanded to $1.5 billion. In short, the Chinese government funded a business that it co-owned along with the son of a sitting vice president.”
This deal was unknown until Schweizer published his book Secret Empires.
Breitbart’s Nick Nolte noted that as of a few weeks ago, Hunter Biden still owns ten percent of the Chinese company he cofounded with the help of the Chinese government’s money.
