How Joe Biden Went From ‘one of the poorest’ in Congress to a Millionaire ... And Then There's? ... Classified Docs Scandal is Unboxing the Biden Family Business

How Joe Biden went from ‘one of the poorest’ in Congress to a millionaire:
When Joe Biden was a US senator, he referred to himself as “one of the poorest members” of Congress. But his fortunes rose precipitously following his years as vice president, thanks to a flurry of cash from book deals and speeches — as well as regular kickbacks from his brother and younger son, according to text messages from Hunter Biden’s laptop and a congressional probe.
In 2016, his last year as vice president, “middle-class Joe” reported between $291,000 and about $1 million in assets and income outside his vice presidential salary of $230,700. He also claimed between $780,000 and about $1.6 million in liabilities, according to his 2016 personal financial disclosure form.
But Biden’s fortunes rapidly changed between 2017 and 2020, with help from both his son Hunter and his brother James, according to a congressional report.
In the year after he left office as vice president in 2017, Biden and his wife, Jill, earned more than $11 million, and raked in $4.6 million the following year, according to Forbes.

Classified docs scandal is unboxing the Biden family business:
Don’t expect boasts of “We’re No. 1” from the White House or Wilmington, but that doesn’t diminish the singular, ah, achievement. Both Bidens have earned their brushes with infamy.
Courtesy of Fox News, here’s a headline for the ages: “Biden, Hunter make presidential history as first father-son duo under separate investigations.”
The president paid his dues with his serially reckless handling of classified information, with the added bonus that the gentle probe of him inadvertently draws a comparison to how roughly Donald Trump is being treated by the same Department of Justice. When it came to the supposedly secret documents Biden had scattered around like so much birdseed, the feds couldn’t even be bothered to search for more, leaving the job to his lawyers for over a month.
It’s a sweet deal if you can get it.
No sudden SWAT team raid for Biden, no pictures of documents scattered on the floor, no Deep State agents whispering suggestions to reporters about the potential sale of America’s secrets to enemy states. Even the fact that the first documents were found on Nov. 2 was kept secret through the midterm election and for two months after.
The official party line remains that Good ol’ Uncle Joe just made a mistake. He meant no harm, and the FBI investigation will prove it!
A similar favoritism is playing out in slow motion in the ostensible tax and lobbying probe of Hunter, now in its fifth year. Instead of charging or not charging the president’s son, Attorney General Merrick Garland is proving he’s a bitter political hack by trying to bury the case deeper than Jimmy Hoffa. --->READ MORE HERE
