Hunter Biden’s trial details how he treated people as disposable objects during drug-fueled stupors

Gordon T. Cleveland, the sales assistant at StarQuest Shooters in Wilmington, Del., who sold Hunter a Colt Cobra .38 Special in October 2018, was as good a prosecution witness as could be on the third day of Hunter Biden’s gun trial in Wilmington federal court Wednesday. New York Post columnist Miranda Devine shares this story. Cleveland, a father of three with diabetes who drives a trash truck for the city, had a second job at the gun shop to make ends meet when the fresh prince of Delaware strolled in late one Friday ­evening. Hunter told Cleveland to keep the $13.19 change from the $900 cash he paid for his purchases. But the salesman was so honest that he thought it would be wrong to keep it. The store owner told the employee the money was his, but Cleveland sets himself high ethical standards, so he put the money in an envelope and left it by the cash register. “I don’t keep tips,” he told the Wilmington jury.

Tony Bobulinski SHREDS Raskin and Goldman in Hearing on Hunter Biden Family Business

In a recent hearing, Tony Bobulinski took aim at Jamie Raskin and Dan Goldman, accusing them of perpetuating lies across various media platforms. The hearing, convened by the House Oversight Committee amidst a Republican-led investigation, delved into allegations surrounding the business dealings of Joe and Hunter Biden. Testimony was provided by former associates of Hunter Biden, including Lev Parnas, once linked to Rudy Giuliani. Tony Bobulinski's testimony focused on purported connections between the Bidens and business ventures in China and Russia, suggesting their involvement in influence peddling. He claimed firsthand encounters with the Bidens in 2017, portraying them as actively engaged participants in the alleged dealings.

Hunter Biden Refuses to Appear at House Hearing, Calls It a ‘Carnival Sideshow’

Hunter Biden, a man whose entire life is a carnival sideshow, has just refused an invitation from House Republicans to appear at a hearing next week, dismissing the whole thing as a “carnival sideshow.” Yeah, you see, Hunter, he’s a serious guy. A man who took hundreds of naked selfies in the company of cocaine and hookers is much too austere and dignified to be subjected to the indignity of a hearing in the House of Representatives.

The New York Post reported on Wednesday that The Big Guy’s bag man “rejected an invitation from House Republicans to appear for a public hearing next week alongside former business associates.” This was what he called a “carnival sideshow,” and Hunter and his team weren’t finished. 

His attorney, Abbe Lowell, “blasted Republicans’ efforts to bring his client before a public hearing after he had sat for a nearly seven-hour deposition last month.” Lowell wrote, “Your latest step — this March 6 invitation — is not a serious oversight proceeding." It is your attempt to resuscitate your Conference’s moribund inquiry with a made-for-right-wing-media, circus act.”

Yeah, a circus act. Step right up! See the man who, according to a Sept. 2020 report by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Senate Committee on Finance, was “paid millions of dollars from a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch” for his presence on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company. 

What training did Hunter have in the natural gas business? Why, none? None at all. What expertise did the young master bring to his lucrative new job? Once again, none. None whatsoever. In fact, the report even states that “the Obama administration knew that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board was problematic and did interfere in the efficient execution of policy with respect to Ukraine.” You might even call it a “carnival sideshow.”

What’s more, “in early 2015 the former Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, George Kent, raised concerns to officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board. Kent’s concerns went unaddressed, and in September 2016, he emphasized in an email to his colleagues, that the presence of Hunter Biden on the Burisma board was very awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine.’” It was more than just awkward. It was inexcusable, and it was clear evidence of corruption.

In the teeth of all that and much more, Hunter and his legal team have the colossal nerve, the Bidenesque chutzpah, to affect a wounded tone of moral rectitude and victimhood. Lowell scolded the committee by asserting that “your idea of congressional fact-finding" is, amazingly, to have Mr. Biden appear with the discredited ‘witnesses’ you continue to promote.” 

Hunter and his legal henchman also “insisted late last year that he appear for a public hearing instead of a private deposition, citing concerns that GOP lawmakers would distort his interview. The two sides ultimately agreed to a sit-down testimony first, followed by a public hearing.” 

All this is designed to give the impression that all of Hunter’s business dealings have been completely on the up-and-up and that Old Joe wasn’t involved in any way whatsoever. The idea is to smear the committee’s entire investigation as a partisan witch hunt, and of course, the establishment media is always ready to amplify this spin. The Post even claimed that “while lawmakers have unearthed ethically questionable behavior by the president’s son and other family members, Republicans have yet to produce evidence of misconduct by Joe Biden while in public office.”

From a strictly legalistic standpoint, that may be true. However, the very fact that Hunter Biden got the Burisma job at all is evidence in itself of influence peddling. House Republicans, given the fact that they’re among the foremost members of the Stupid Party, may not be able to unearth any smoking gun that absolutely proves that Hunter and The Big Guy were engaged in any corrupt dealings, but it’s blazingly obvious that the whole thing was an attempt to gain access and influence over the White House. Or are we just supposed to believe that Burisma executives happened upon Hunter Biden and said to each other, “Never mind the crack and hookers, and forget about his total lack of knowledge in the field: that boy has potential! Let’s give him an entry-level million-dollar salary!” 

Hunter Biden is trying to play the American people for fools, and he has good reason to think we are since, after all, his empty husk of a father is in the Oval Office. But House Republicans should call a halt to this carnival sideshow immediately and use all legal means to compel Hunter to cooperate with their investigation.

United States House Republicans have asked Hunter Biden to testify during an open hearing on March 20th.

On Wednesday, the panel released a statement asking President Joe Biden’s controversial son Hunter to testify in an open hearing on March 20th as it continues its impeachment probe of his father.

James Comer (R-K.Y.) invited Hunter along with Tony Bobulinski, Devon Archer, and Jason Galanis to testify at the hearing. 

As part of the impeachment probe, all four of them have given private testimonies. However, Comer stated that the upcoming hearing will “examine inconsistencies among the witnesses’ testimonies in order to get the truth for the American people.”

“Evidence obtained in the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry reveals Joe Biden knew about, participated in, and benefited from his family cashing in on the Biden name,” Comer said in a statement Wednesday. “Multiple witnesses have testified Joe Biden allowed his family to sell him as ‘the brand’ around the world to enrich the Biden family. Joe Biden met with nearly all of his son’s foreign business associates; attended dinners with foreign oligarchs who collectively funneled his son millions of dollars; spoke on speakerphone with his son’s foreign associates, telling those who did business with his son to be ‘good to my boy’; and had coffee with his son’s Chinese business associate.” 

He continued, explaining that Joe Biden’s “pay-to-play scheme is corrupt and Americans demand accountability.”

“During our deposition and interview phase of the investigation, Hunter Biden confirmed evidence about Joe Biden’s involvement, yet his testimony conflicts with other witnesses’ testimonies,” Comer continued. “Given the (president’s) son’s repeated calls for a public hearing, I fully expect Hunter Biden to appear for a scheduled Oversight Committee hearing on March 20, alongside Biden family business associates. The American people deserve the facts about the Biden family’s corrupt influence peddling and Oversight Republicans will work to ensure accountability and press for answers to inform legislative solutions to prevent this abuse of power.” 

Hunter has consistently insisted that his father was never involved and that he never benefited from his business ventures during the much-anticipated deposition last week before the House Oversight and Judiciary committees.

However, Hunter Biden did admit that he put his father on speakerphone with his foreign business associates and that he invited him to “drop by” certain business-related lunches.

Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors have announced that FBI investigators found cocaine powder on the pouch that held the gun Hunter Biden purchased in 2018.

In a court filing on Tuesday, Special Counsel David Weiss’s team revealed that FBI investigators retrieved Hunter Biden’s illegally purchased gun, tested it for drugs, and found “traces of cocaine.” Additionally, they urged the judge to reject Hunter Biden’s request to dismiss pending gun charges against him.

“In 2023, FBI investigators pulled sealed evidence from the state police vault to take photographs of the defendant’s firearm. After opening the evidence, FBI investigators observed a white powdery substance on the defendant’s brown leather pouch that had held the defendant’s firearm in October 2018,” the motion read.

“Based on their training and experience, investigators believed that this substance was likely cocaine and that this evidence would corroborate the messages that investigators had obtained which showed the defendant buying and using drugs in October 2018. An FBI chemist subsequently analyzed the residue and determined that it was cocaine. To be clear, investigators literally found drugs on the pouch where the defendant had kept his gun,” the filing added.

President Joe Biden’s son formally entered a “not guilty” plea to three firearms charges back in October.

The gun in question is a “Colt Cobra revolver.” When Hunter purchased it in 2018, he falsely claimed in paperwork that he was sober. However, truthfully, he was still on hard drugs at the time.

Hunter was charged by Weiss with making false statements on a federal firearm form as well as possession of a firearm as a prohibited person. The three charges carry a maximum prison sentence of 25 years behind bars and a $250,000 fine.

Hunter Biden Now Says He Will Speak To House Committees Regarding Efforts To Impeach Father

OAN’s Brooke Mallory
2:13 PM – Friday, January 12, 2024

SEE: https://www.oann.com/newsroom/hunter-biden-now-says-he-will-speak-to-house-committees-regarding-efforts-to-impeach-father/; republished below in full, unedited, for informational, educational, & research purposes:

In an attempt to postpone a vote that could take place as soon as next week to find Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress, Hunter finally gave in on Friday and consented to testify in the House impeachment investigation concerning his father, President Joe Biden.

Hunter, 53, “raised a white flag” in a letter to Congress with help from his lawyer, Abbe Lowell.

Hunter had previously declined to partake in a deposition behind closed doors, claiming that he was afraid that his statements would be misconstrued.

“If you issue a new proper subpoena, now that there is a duly authorized impeachment inquiry, Mr. Biden will comply for a hearing or deposition. We will accept such a subpoena on Mr. Biden’s behalf,” Lowell wrote.

Following Hunter’s recent chaotic disruption of the Oversight hearing, which infuriated Republicans, the House Judiciary and Oversight committees separately decided on Wednesday to punish Hunter in contempt.

Hunter skipped the planned deposition on December 13th in favor of a confrontational statement in which he asserted that his father was not “financially involved” in making millions of dollars from his foreign business operations overseas.

The minimum sentence for contempt of Congress is 30 days in jail, however, if the full House votes in favor of the penalty, President Biden’s nominees in the Justice Department will decide whether to pursue legal action.

It was unclear on Friday if the House would continue to vote on the contempt resolution while they looked into the president’s involvement in Hunter and James Biden’s business transactions in nations like China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and even Russia.

Republicans maintain that President Biden had been involved in his son and brother’s foreign business affairs and was also profiting from them, even while serving as vice president.

Republicans have expressed that they would be happy to hold a public hearing with Hunter Biden, who frequently included his father in his foreign dealings, but only after following a deposition conducted behind closed doors by committee staff members who would go through details in order to create a record for the investigation.

In July, the first son pulled out of a probation-only plea agreement because he wanted guarantees in court that he would not be held accountable for any additional actions, such as suspected breaches of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which could have implicated his father.

House investigators are looking into claims made by two IRS whistleblowers that Justice Department officials protected Joe and Hunter Biden during a five-year probe that was mostly concerned with Hunter’s tax evasion, in addition to the suspected influence-peddling.

In their testimony last year, IRS supervisor Gary Shapley and case agent Joseph Ziegler maintained that Attorney General Merrick Garland and other DOJ officials had misled Congress about the probe, alerted Hunter’s legal team to their investigative steps, withheld evidence and important leads, and had forbidden lines of inquiry into Joe Biden—even when communications directly implicated him.

Joe Biden’s assertions made throughout the 2020 campaign that he “never” talked business with his son or brother and his assurance last month that he “did not” communicate with any of their overseas partners are contradicted by the growing body of evidence demonstrating his involvement in the foreign connections.

Democrats also still claim that there’s no proof of corruption.
