If The Bidens Aren’t A ‘Crime Family’, Why Did Joe’s Campaigns Funnel So Much Money To Relatives?

Written by Wes Walker on October 20, 2020

For someone who has literally been a lifelong ‘public servant’ Joe sure is doing really well for himself. Is it too much for that public to wonder WHY?

National Pulse has shared a story about Joe Biden campaign dollars that went right back into companies owned by his family. This is exactly the kind of greasy dealings that make ordinary citizens hold politicians in contempt, and people like Trump use provocative phrases like ‘crime family’.

But what if Trump’s right?

ClashDaily has been reporting for some time now about how many politicians — Biden among them — have close relatives who just happen to find their way into lucrative contracts, whether doing business with the government or with entities overseas with an interest in what’s happening here at home.

Burisma is the perfect microcosm of that scenario but by no means does it stand as a unique example — even within Joe’s own family, there have been plenty of other red flags raised about his inner circle, even before the alternative media came along to shine a light on it.

But traditional news sources have had their curiosity about such things strangely quenched of late. Anything that can damn the Republicans (real or imagined) they chase down relentlessly, and if no sources can corroborate the story, they can be conveniently invented. (Just ask Schiff.)

When Democrats are accused of the same sketchy practices, that journalistic zeal evaporates like a morning mist.

The Trump Tower meeting — which even the Hillary-connected translator did not describe as having any nefarious content — is held up as ‘evidence of Russian collusion’ after it’s been looked at under the microscope by pretty much everyone but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

By that standard, the Biden family finances deserve the same forensic colorectal exam that Trump got.

And besides all the other evidence we have seen of sketchy financial dealings, the National Pulse has published a story about $150k in Campaign money that went back to family-owned companies, $70k of that to Hunter. (Is this part of the money from which Hunter said that said ‘pop’ takes a 50% cut?)

But Hunter Biden is not the only Biden family member to have benefited financially – nearly $80,000 – or professionally from Joe Biden holding political office.

Between 2002 and 2006, Citizens for Biden funneled nearly $60,000 to Biden family members.

Joe Biden’s sister Valerie Biden Owens pocketed $52,808.62 and his niece Catherine Owens profited $3,618.51 – payments both itemized as the individuals’ salaries.

And Joe Biden’s immediate family members – wife Jill, son Beau, and brother James – collectively received $1,765.94 in reimbursements from the campaign.

The practice of family members receiving money from politician’s political campaigns is rare, according to a 2016 report from the nonpartisan and often anti-Trump Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). Read the rest at TheNationalPulse

Is THIS really the conduct of someone who has been lecturing hard-working tax-paying Americans about the rich paying their fair share, and thumping his chest about the ‘soul of America’?
