The Hunter Biden investigation reached a new level in recent days after lawmakers announced that millions of dollars were transferred from a Chinese energy company with much of it ending up in the hands of the Biden family and associates.
Now, critics say the Hunter Biden scandal could jeopardize the president’s reelection hopes.
“The promise of Joe Biden the candidate was a return to normal. He presented himself as the kindly older guy who had seen and heard everything and would be a transition away from the tumult of Trump,” Republican strategist and Co-founder of South & Hill Strategies Colin Reed told The Center Square. “He wasn’t going to light the world on fire, but he wasn’t going to wreck the car either. The reality of Joe Biden the president has been anything but, especially as the saga of Biden Inc. continues to unfold in real time. It’s beyond clear at this point that the questions cannot simply be dismissed as fake news or politically motivated.”
In a bombshell report last week, House Oversight Committee Chair Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., said financial records show that Biden family members Hunter Biden, James Biden, Hallie Biden, and another unknown “Biden” received $1.3 million in payments from accounts related to Rob Walker, a Biden family associate.
“Questions about the intersection of money and influence sunk the presidential hopes of Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden would be wise to heed those lessons, particularly now that the latest shoe to drop involves purported payments from Chinese business interests,” Reed added.

The entire scandal developed another layer Friday when Hunter Biden filed a lawsuit against the computer repair shop owner, John Paul Mac Isaac, who handed his laptop over to law enforcement after discovering questionable material on it and being unable to reach Hunter.
That lawsuit, though, confirms that the laptop did come from Hunter Biden and not from Russian disinformation efforts, as much of the media and intelligence experts asserted in 2020. Those assertions were used to clamp down on and even censor the story during the 2020 presidential election cycle, possibly affecting the outcome.
Now, the ongoing scandal has provided steady fodder for Biden’s critics, something that is all but certain to continue if the president runs for reelection.
“The only thing Hunter Biden adds to the equation was access to his father,” U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz said after the news broke.

And lawmakers have shown little sign of slowing the investigation. Comer sent a letter Friday to call on John “Rob” Walker to appear for a transcribed interview.
Walker is an associate of the Biden family who the committee says was connected to bank accounts in the Biden network that received over $1 million. The committee said that “most of the payments to the Biden family came after Rob Walker received a $3 million wire from a Chinese energy company.”

“Rob Walker is a key witness in our investigation of President Biden’s involvement in his family’s business schemes,” the letter said. “After receiving a $3 million dollar payout from a Chinese energy company two months after Vice President Biden left office, Rob Walker then sent over a million dollars in incremental payments to Biden family accounts and a similar amount to another Biden family associate.”
“These records reveal that the three parties likely all received a third of the money from China and it is unclear what services were provided in return,” the letter added. “When speaking about dealings with the Biden family, Rob Walker once said that exposing him would ‘bury all of us, man.’ Why? The Oversight Committee has many questions for Rob Walker and we look forward to getting answers for the American people.”

Congress is saying this Walker guy is a key witness to how corrupt the biden family is. All I can say he better watch his back. Biden probably has a hit list just like the Clintons do.
Why is it called the “Hunter Biden Scandal” when he has been nothing more than the bit player in Yet Another Joe Biden Scandal. Why isn’t it the VP Joe Biden Influence Selling Scandal?
Scandals don’t take down Democrats. Other Democrats throw damaged Democrats under the bus to get rid of them. This is being allowed to get Joe of the 2024 ticket. If Joe could talk and walk and had good approval numbers this would be suppressed.
I think that reelection is not actually what Joe is running for. The Democrats used a number of devices to get him into the WH, such as changing election laws and misreresenting his intentions as president. I would call 2024 an attempt to be elected for the first time. And they would be using even more tricks to accomplish that. Why would anyone want more inflation, danger from China, war in Europe, illegal alien invasions, bank scandals, energy shortages and transportation catastrophes? Probably not the biggest majority of all elections, if they succeed again.
Yeah, but remember…NOTHING ever happens to Dumbassocratz.
The only thing it adds? What does an elephant have to fall out of the sky and land on some Republicans before they get it, what’s the Big Guy to do?
Just imagine the furore from all the msm progressive land uninformed idiots as sholes would be doing of Biden were a Republican
HOW MUCH MORE DIRTY LAUNDRY ON THE BIDENS, HAS TO BE BROUGHT OUT? THE QUESTION IS, WILL HEADS EVER START ROLLING AGAINST THE BIDEN FAMIL, OR WHAT? JUST ANOTHER WHO ALSO RAN/ MORE DAMN GOP COMMITTEES????
WILL THE BIDENS, HILLARYS PELOSI OBAMAS, EVER BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE, BEFORE THEY DIE OF, “OLD AGE”?
OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT LEAVES A LOT TO BE DESIRED. THE COURTS ETC ARE ALL CORRUPT AS HELL, THERE’S NOT (1) DEPT WITHN OUR GOVERNMENT, THAT I WOULD EVER PLACE ANY TRUST IN. ESPECIALLY THE IRS / DOJ / FBI / HOMELAND SECURITY / SUPREME COURT. AND THE LIST OF “CORRUPTION” WITHIN, SEEMS ENDLESS.
Karma, what goes around comes around.
The Biden family deserves what they get. They worked hard to get it.
