President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden has profited from his father’s famous name for decades. However, that resource may be all tapped out among the American people.
According to the Washington Examiner, 68% of Americans agree that Hunter Biden should be investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice for his problematic foreign business dealings. The TIPP Poll results showed that respondents of all political stripes would like to see an independent investigation.
The results skewed when broken down further along party lines. While an overall majority want a special counsel to look into it, 85% of Republicans compared to 65% of Democrats, and 65% of independents prefer it proceed that way.
The poll also revealed that the motivation for scrutinizing the matter varied along party lines. Democrats wanted to clear President Biden’s good name, likely believing the flimsy cover story that the allegations were Russian disinformation. Republicans just wanted to bring the truth to light.
Hunter Biden was involved in many questionable deals with foreign businesses. A New York Post October surprise scoop revealed that he may have traded on the name of his politically-connected father who was vice president at the time.
Emails recovered from a laptop allegedly left behind by the younger Biden at a Delaware repair shop yielded information about the complicated ties he and his father had to a Ukrainian energy company and other foreign players. It also allegedly contained an x-rated video of Hunter Biden — who has admitted to substance abuse issues — smoking crack while engaged in a sex act.
This was all available before the 2020 presidential election, but collusion between social media and Democrats effectively killed the bombshell about Hunter Biden. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey later said it was a “mistake” that led to the story being blocked on the platform, but Twitter routinely and openly plays politics.
Although they effectively quashed the matter enough to get Joe Biden elected, it seems the elder Biden can’t shake the sins of his son. The American people agree on very little these days, so it’s quite telling that it was Hunter Biden’s dirty dealings that have united them.
