NBC "News" Has a Scoop: Hunter Biden Made $11 Million From 2013 to 2018, Largely From Overseas "Business Partners"

This smells like Russian Disinformation to me.

I'm a Renowned Disinformation Expert! Hire me!

Analysis of Hunter Biden's hard drive shows he, his firm took in about $11 million from 2013 to 2018, spent it fast



The hard drive and documents from Senate Republicans indicate few of Biden's deals ever came to fruition and shed light on how fast he was spending his money.

I don't believe NBC ever acknowledged the hard drive was real. Instead, they do what CNN and other lying leftwing propaganda outlets do -- they discuss it as if it is real, they assume it is real, without ever explicitly saying so.

And, critically: Without ever confessing their previous partisan falsehoods that it was "Russian disinformation."

It's gone from "disinformation" to real through pure sublimation, with no intermediate stages of retraction, correction, and acknowledgement.

Remember, even though they get things wrong all the time, they're not disinformation because "they admit their mistakes."

Except, of course: they don't. Ever.

From 2013 through 2018 Hunter Biden and his company brought in about $11 million via his roles as an attorney and a board member with a Ukrainian firm accused of bribery and his work with a Chinese businessman now accused of fraud, according to an NBC News analysis of a copy of Biden's hard drive and iCloud account and documents released by Republicans on two Senate committees.

The documents and the analysis, which don't show what he did to earn millions from his Chinese partners, raise questions about national security, business ethics and potential legal exposure. In December 2020, Biden acknowledged in a statement that he was the subject of a federal investigation into his taxes. NBC News was first to report that an ex-business partner had warned Biden he should amend his tax returns to disclose $400,000 in income from the Ukrainian firm, Burisma. GOP congressional sources also say that if Republicans take back the House this fall, they'll demand more documents and probe whether any of Biden's income went to his father, President Joe Biden.

"No government ethics rules apply to him," said Walter Shaub, a former director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics who is now an ethics expert with the Project on Government Oversight. Shaub added, however, that "it's imperative that no one at DOJ and no one at the White House interfere with the criminal investigation in Delaware." Shaub had previously raised questions about Hunter Biden's new line of work, selling his own paintings, which created the potential to purchase a painting to buy perceived influence, and also because the White House became involved in the transactions, arranging that none of the buyers' names be known to Biden, the White House or the public.

Frank Figliuzzi, the FBI's former assistant director for counterintelligence, said there is a national security risk when foreign powers like China see an opportunity to get close to someone like Biden. "It's all about access and influence, and if you can compromise someone with both access and influence, that's even better," said Figliuzzi, now an NBC News contributor. "Better still if that target has already compromised himself."

The documents and the analysis indicate that few of Biden's deals ever came to fruition and shed light on how fast he was spending his money. Expenditures compiled on his hard drive show he spent more than $200,000 per month from October 2017 through February 2018 on luxury hotel rooms, Porsche payments, dental work and cash withdrawals.

Well, he did need that dental work. Because of all the crack and meth.

Although Biden says he's now paid all the back taxes he had owed, that doesn't absolve him from failing to pay him in the first place. And NBC quotes some experts saying that by acknowledging he failed to pay these taxes he owed, he has established he knew he'd owed them, thereby establishing the hard-to-prove intent to evade taxes, so elusive to establish in most other tax evasion cases.

...

Biden made $5.8 million, more than half his total earnings from 2013 to 2018, from two deals with Chinese business interests.

Biden's most lucrative business relationship was acting as a consultant in a project with a company that belongs to a once-powerful Chinese businessman who is now thought to be detained in his homeland.

The article claims that "nothing" in the hard drives suggests that Hunter Biden was "earning" money for his father -- despite, you know, writing "10% for the Big Guy" and "you're lucky that dad doesn't take half of your salary like he does mine."

Meanwhile -- "The Big Guy" hires what is effectively a personal lawyer, though paid for by taxpayers and called "Special Counsel to the President," in expectation of investigations next year.

The White House has hired Richard Sauber to assist in the Biden administration's response to potential future investigations should Republicans win back majorities in Congress in the midterm elections, officials confirm to CNN.

Sauber, currently the top lawyer at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and is expected to begin at the White House in the next few weeks with the title "special counsel to the president."

"Dick is an excellent lawyer who brings decades of experience that will be a valuable asset," Ian Sams, a White House counsel spokesperson, told CNN. "As we have since the transition, we are ensuring the White House is prepared for the issues we are facing or will face in the future, and we have built and continue to build a strong legal team to conduct our work and serve the public and the President."


News of Sauber's hiring comes after CNN reported in April that White House officials were preparing a slew of personnel moves as officials brace for a potential Republican takeover on Capitol Hill in November. Democrats, who hold narrow majorities in the US House and Senate, face a challenging midterm environment this year amid growing economic concerns and middling approval ratings for President Joe Biden.

The GOP has promised to be aggressive with its investigations of Biden should Republicans regain control of Congress. In April, CNN reported the return of Anita Dunn, one of Biden's closest advisers, as well as Sams' hiring for his current communications position.

SkyNews' expert Joe Siracusa thinks that impeachment may be on the table, now that Democrats have turned impeachment into a routine tool of political disapproval.

Yeah. It's failure theater. It could have been a real tool against a president by Congress, but the Senate folded in the trial against Andrew Johnson at the nadir of his popularity and it was never seriously considered again until Nixon.

Imagine a US where Johnson had been impeached (rightly or wrongly, it's about competing interests between the Executive and Legislative bodies) and FDR wondering if Congress could do the same thing to him.

19 All this is coming out now because the Dems want Biden gone, and Harris realizes that the Admin isn't going to step aside for her like they promised. Biden was supposed to get one good year, three big accomplishments (BBB, Vaccines, and Afghanistan), and then let Harris be the face of the administration until it was time to resign for "health reasons."

but it will be fun to watch the Dems if the election in November is as bad as it looks like it will be. Remember Biden is in the ultra weird position of having *no* personal constituency of his own; he was only selected because they decided he could "get things done!" in DC. Well, he can't, and there's no reason for any part of the Democrat coalition to want to keep him around anymore.

So, NBC, would you describe a man selling access to his father and doing no work for millions of dollars as taking bribes? Like, when Ukraine paid up, in apparent return for American defense (soldiers lives) organized by Biden.

Bribes.

If the House decides to impeach (I doubt it), then Mitch will speed the trial through the Senate just like he did Trump's.

I've been wondering (in a long term way) why the struggle between the Legislature and the Executive turned out so differently in the US and UK. In the UK, Parliament decisively won its battles against the Executive (the Kings) until now, the Executive is just the top Parliamentary official. But in the US, the Congress has gradually abdicated all of its powers to either the Executive or the Judiciary, and now is little more than Hollywood for ugly people. It's fair to say that in creating an Imperial Presidency, we've gone back to the old Roman model and given up on the British.

73 It's worth noting that absolutist monarchies were often oppressive not through the direct intention and malice of the monarchs, but due to the structure of the government.

If you centralize all power in one individual, he must delegate. The larger the realm, the more delegation there is to the bureaucracy. Who are additionally quite expensive and tend to live in the capitol. Being unacquainted with the actual affairs they tend to regulate and tax, they make for oppressive rulers even absent malice.

In favor of the strength of monarchs has been the abolition of serfdom. Serfdom strengthens nobles, and so monarchs sought to and succeeded in abolishing it as their power grew. Periods of unusual weakness where the throne needed to rely on the support of nobles was how serfdom arose in the first place, well after the fall of Rome.

171 Q for you historians. In a recent novel called Hot Time, a mystery set in 1896 NYC, one W. L. Smith has his villain character (painted as a xenophobic racist, of course) hoping that Wm. Jennings Bryan will win the 1896 presidential race against McKinley. The character's view is that the Republicans are glad to let in all the riffraff of the world for cheap domestic and factory labor. According to him, under Bryan anyway, the Dems would restrict immigration to keep America pure. (The author is a Teddy Roosevelt scholar, so I'd guess he has a lot of details correct.)

Was that true in our world? I know the Klan (starting in the South, thus Democrat) after the Civil War were as anti-Jew, Catholic, and "furriner" as they were anti-black. Did that extend to a national Dem policy against "foreign" (mostly eastern and southern Europe) immigration too? If so, when did that morph into their current "Come on in!" policy -- 1965?

Of course, as you probably recall the southern Democrats and the northern had a disagreement on immigration.

The Northern (NYC) Democrat party was as open borders as you could get, going so far as to pay passage and put people up when they first arrived. This was explicitly for the purpose of buying votes. BTW, in my (NJ) neck of the woods, it is still legal to give out cash on election day to church ministers in return for votes, though they call it "walking around money for cab fares to polling places".

The question is who would cover it? None of this is new information, we've known it for years. Johnson and Grassley have been putting out stuff on Hunter since before the election and the NY Post did as well.

The key to the entire Russia collusion hoax is being heard in a federal court in DC right now and virtually o media is covering it at all. And they aren't covering it because not only are they in bed with the left it would prove they were part of the scam.

As we speak the court is hearing evidence about Sussmann bringing the fake Alfa Bank story to the NYT and others and the media is silent. Breaking the media is as important as breaking the corrupt Democrat party.

Hunter, for his manifold faults, is a pretty good grifter. It's actually kind of impressive, given that he was higher than an SR-71 and nursing next-gen, Year 3000 STDs the whole time.

And while he's certainly not a smart person by most people's definition, I think Brandon might have been right when he said he's "the smartest person [Brandon] knows."

Brandon was practically retarded before his brain turned into a rotten shrimp cocktail. And I doubt that his personal circle is much better. His bosses are probably marginally smarter than Hunter. But as far as the people Brandon spends his days and nights with, he may well be the leading intellectual light.

Kalorama is a very tony neighborhood in Washington, DC. It is where Obama bought a very big house to use as his post-presidential base of operations in the capital.

The implication when people talk about the "Kalorama Crew" or say "shots called from Kalorama" or similar is that what we're seeing are the machinations of Obama and his people (like Jarrett, Rice, etc.), and that the actual seat of influence (or possibly of power directly) is not at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but in Obama's Kalorama mansion.

Yes, but that won't happen. If Joe or Kamala go, the VP position will be empty. The Senate republicans probably won't confirm someone acceptable to the administration and the administration won't nominate someone acceptable to congress (assuming, of course, a Republican majority and that they don't just do it anyway because they're total assholes. That latter is the real risk, but coming in off a wave will likely make them less inclined to cooperate on something like that)

268 Of course, as you probably recall the southern Democrats and the northern had a disagreement on immigration.

The Northern (NYC) Democrat party was as open borders as you could get, going so far as to pay passage and put people up when they first arrived. This was explicitly for the purpose of buying votes. BTW, in my (NJ) neck of the woods, it is still legal to give out cash on election day to church ministers in return for votes, though they call it "walking around money for cab fares to polling places".

If Kamala would even try. Both chambers of Congress would have to affirm her by large majorities, and with Republicans having a huge say, it may not be worthwhile.

I know...failure theater, but I still believe a fight over an empty VP slot with the upcoming Republican Congress and a Kamala president would be a show that Mitch would allow to play out. It's largely meaningless (since the VP doesn't do anything), and it would be great for fundraising. It wouldn't affect any agency in any meaningful way or the running of the government in any capacity. Perfect placement for failure theater.

302 The bill, dubbed the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act, passed in an 222-203 vote, with one Republican, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), bucking party leadership recommendation and voting for the legislation. Four Republicans did not vote.

The legislation specifically calls for the formation of domestic terrorism offices within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI that would be tasked with monitoring and scrutinizing potential terror activity.

Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) on the House floor said the bill was about "empowerment of the federal bureaucracy to target Americans."

"This is nothing more than empowering the federal government to police thought and speech in the United States of America, and we should oppose it roundly," he later added.

I'm sorry, but revenge is about 1% of why I want to see massive investigations into horrible, horrible overreach and graft and corruption and sellouts and evisceration of the country's wealth and unbelievable damage to the fabric of our nation and weakening of our stance in the world which has brought us to the precipice of annihilation by our enemies.

So, payback? Meh. I want to restore order in the nation and set us back on a course where the righteous may live their lives in peace and the unrighteous are held to account. Period. Just as the Founders set out to do, and we had been doing for 250 years.

I think the System would support such a move to bring some stability. Mitch would do it so long as he has influence over who replaces Mitt. I don't think it will happen, but if Biden is going to be deposed, I don't see any other scenario because Mitch holds a lot of cards in such a scenario.

Posted by: TheJamesMadison, fighting the system with Kobayashi

Johnson (Andrew, not LBJ) was not terrible, but he was a little too eager to curry favor with the Democrats "restored" to the Union after the end of the Civil War. In the opinion of the Republicans, we were going right back to where we were in 1858-59.
Impeaching Joe Biden would put him in the dock of the Senate, but there is no way he would get convicted and removed. There won't be 67 votes in the Senate to remove him. Just stop with the failure theater.
Failure theater, indeed.
Instead, the Republicans could run on a platform (as the House and Senate) of restoration. But that would require some actual effort. McCarthy and McConnell are both bought and paid for controlled opposition.
Nothing will change...much.

In the end, Johnson was not impeached, Grant was elected in 1868, and we ended up with years of a harsher Reconstruction.

468 notes on Sri Lanka - if you scan the news reports, you'll find that all the MSM outlets characterize it as only a Financial crisis; and yet, Sri Lanka imports almost all of its wheat, and the current crisis has stopped ALL imports.

Related news item - India, forseeing potential food shortages in its own borders this summer, has just announced a total ban on ALL wheat exports for the rest of this year. They're going to hang on to all of it, smart move. Compare this to Biden allowing oil shortages here in America while he's still shipping lots of oil off to China and Europe.

470 If you think there is a baby formula shortage now, wait until the government owns the baby formula industry.

FDA is the agency that created the problem in the first place.

Instead of keeping the Factory running, testing product, and fixing issues... they shut down the factory that was making 42% of the overall National Supply, WHILE keeping the total restrictions on Importing in place.

Total lack of awareness of Consequence.

471 452 Are there any discussions about a monopoly investigation into Abbott?

If the government shutting down an Abbott facility for the LULZ can cause this much of a problem aren't they clearly a monopoly?

You don't usually need to do too much to cause a shortage but it's quite possible. Oil markets are only like 1 to 2% undersupplied for example.

bush's gaffe is 100X worse than you think

it's more than a "slip," it's an admission, and he laughed about it

bush had a chance to correct his mistake, but he chuckled and mumbled, "Iraq, too."

THEN he caught himself and tried to make a "senile" joke about himself by mentioning he is 75 years old.

If you think theres a shortage of anything just wait until the Great Worldwide Energy Crisis when the US power grid finally degrades the Third World Status because "Green Energy!!" and the US demand for international oil sales exceeds supply. Oopsie!

Rationing by the heavy hand of government to follow. Double oopsie!!

If I remember correctly, WIC covers about 50% of babies and the formula vouchers applied only to formula from Abbott. That was eliminated in the legislation just passed.

So there hasn't been a market in formula for a long time.
