The bad news continues to roll in for Joe Biden.
A bombshell scandal is reaching critical mass.
Joe Biden just heard the two words that terrify every politician.
The Daily Mail published a blockbuster story alleging that Joe and Hunter Biden shared a bank account and that money flowed back and forth between the two.
In the report, the Daily Mail cited emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop from Hunter Biden and one of his business associates that appeared to confirm this was the case.
This represented a significant development because if Joe and Hunter Biden passed funds back and forth it could implicate Joe Biden in the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden on money laundering charges.
Appearing on “Fox and Friends,” George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley explained the numerous ways this story presented political and legal problems for Joe Biden.
First, Turley noted that Joe and Hunter Biden sharing a bank account undercut Joe Biden’s claims that he had no knowledge of Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
“This undermines much of what the president has said, but it’s not the first time. You know, the president has repeatedly said he has no knowledge, no involvement in these investments. That has been contradicted by witnesses and emails,” Turley began.
Turley added that some of the emails referred to Biden in code and that one of the businesses – Rosemont Seneca – that paid into the account Joe and Hunter Biden allegedly shared had links to Communist China and Ukraine.
“He’s referred to in some emails as ‘the Big Guy,’ and some of those emails indicate an actual percentage cut was discussed for now-President Biden. With these disclosures, we have accounts being used to pay both Hunter and Joe Biden and money being reimbursed to Hunter Biden from an individual associated with a company called Rosemont Seneca. Now, that’s a company that has been tied to payments from China and Russia, and so this is getting more and more serious,” Turley continued.
Finally, Turley stated that he could not believe the Justice Department did not appoint a special counsel to investigate this matter since the criminal conduct in question may involve Joe Biden.
“The question is why the Justice Department hasn’t considered the appointment of a special counsel,” Turley told the hosts. “We know there’s a criminal investigation going on into the tax issues, possible money laundering, but there’s also serious questions about whether the Biden family conducted an extensive influence-peddling operation involving not just Hunter but his uncle and potentially the President of the United States, and what a special counsel can do is produce a report. And we really are in a position where we need an independent report to be done.”
As Bill Clinton and Donald Trump found out, once the Justice Department appoints a special counsel a president loses control of his administration.
But since Merrick Garland is the most political attorney general in American history – Garland sicced the FBI on parents that oppose left-wing indoctrination and mask mandates in schools – it remains a long shot that the Justice Department will nominate a special counsel to investigate the Bidens’ business dealings.
