On Wednesday, Republican Senator Rand Paul said that he believes that former President Barack Obama may be trying to hide a possible “smoking gun” on Hunter Biden’s business overseas.
“Why do you think Barack Obama is weighing in, do you fear there’s something they’re trying to hide here?” Fox News’ Ed Henry asked Sen. Paul.
Rand Paul: ‘I think that there could be a smoking gun’
Paul relied, “Yeah, there’s been rumors for quite a while that people within the Obama Administration knew about the corruption problems with Hunter Biden, that they warned the vice president and maybe even the president about it.”

“I think that there could be a smoking gun, that there’s actually a record of some of these complaints that were going on at the time,” Paul continued.

“There have been some articles written, quoting unnamed sources saying that there were some assistants and people around Joe Biden at the time, saying this Hunter Biden thing looks bad and you should put a stop to it,” the senator said. “And they never did.”

‘I think President Obama knew about this’
Paul added, “But I think President Obama knew about this, so it’s not surprising to me that he would try to keep a lid on it and not let any records come to the public.”

Obama said Republicans were spreading ‘Russian disinformation’
In March, Buzzfeed News obtained a letter written by Obama instructing the National Archives and Records Administration to block Republican efforts to access records about the connections between Biden, Ukraine and alleged Ukrainian election interference.
Obama said that the investigation promoted “Russian disinformation.”

Nancy said in 2018, “I don’t care what you have to do to win, Just Win.” And this pandemic is the tool they are using to win.
Obama is a POS….period!
Of course he knew all about the criminal goings on not only about Hunter Biden, but the whole Biden family has profited in the millions from the VP political contacts around the world. Obama himself could not keep his hand and nose out of political interference during elections in Kenya and Israel just to name two, while he was in office..
Well, this will prove Obama was actually the president. He did keep on top of a few things during his 8 years of National Community Organizing.
The corruption started at the top. Obama is guilty.
How could the POTUS not know what his VP was doing in the Ukraine utilizing Airforce 2 to make trips back and forth. Surely Obummer isnt stupid enough to see what’s going on with people that high on the ladder?
Who needs more evidence on Hunter Biden. He will be found guilty based on the evidence that has already been established.
yep…keep your eyes on the prize; BlackBarry’s neck in the proverbial noose! He told us all that his would be a transformative administration…and it was; from a nation of Free Men governed by a divinely inspired document…the US Constitution…to a rabble inspired by the filth of Hollywood and governed by MSM and Wall Street. “REMEMBER OBAMA!”
To me the letter he wrote to the National Archives & Records Admin telling them to block Republican efforts just tells me that he knows there’s incriminating evidence in those records and he doesn’t want us to see them. This is just like his birth certificate and college records that are all locked up. He’s hiding something and he knows it! Most corrupt president this country has ever had.
“In March, Buzzfeed News obtained a letter written by Obama instructing the National Archives and Records Administration to block Republican efforts to access records about the connections between Biden, Ukraine and alleged Ukrainian election interference.”
Obama should have absolutely no authority to instruct anybody in government about anything.
I guess Obama sees he has to watch what’s going on in our government to protect himself. The people he trusted are being thrown under the bus to protect him and they need to save themselves so they are not going to fall on their swords for a multi-millionaire communist islamic. So he has to resort to protecting himself now.
Of course he knew, and was trying to cover it up.
Didn’t do 98% of the time.
whatever else Obama may be he’s not stupid … he either closed his eyes and ears when it came to Biden or he knew … I suggest he knew and did nothing about it … of course he will say he didn’t know and his administration so far has no whistleblower to rebut that … it will turn out to be a big nothing burger since Obama’s supporters don’t care what he did or didn’t do
Folks, our country, our freedoms, and our Constitutional rights, are in the hands of these people who do not believe in the rule of law. They are willing to commit immoral, unethical, lawless crimes thinking they can get away with their criminal behavior.
Unless the operatives in this Nation wide attempt to subvert and commit sedition for a Coup against a duly elected President, are brought to justice for their Benedict Arnold acts, we will lose this country. Oh, and this includes the billionaires; George Soros, Tom Steyer, Mike Bloomberg, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates among the many who should be held responsible for attempting to steal our country from us. Pretty spectacular to get 350 Million of the freest people on earth to shutter in place through fear mongering and lies.
There is no doubt Obama was involved in a lot of treasonous acts against our country. If we Americans could find him and Michelle, we would take care of them ourselves. The DOJ and others have not done a dam thing.
Obama is a pathetic spineless jerk that was good at one thing and that was reading off a teleprompter. No discernible intellect found here. A puppet on the Globalist string, saying what his masters told him to say the name Gsoros comes to mind. that and his wife “Big Mike”.
If you remember in that video Biden incriminated Obama when the Ukrainian president said Biden didn’t have the authority to withhold the 1.6 billion dollars to which Biden replied, “oh no, just call President Obama.” That’s proof enough for me that Obama knew exactly what Quid Pro Joe was doing. Obama was complicit in the whole scheme to get Viktor Shokin fired. Therefore Obama also knew that Biden got Hunter the CEO job at Burisma. Corruption at the very top of our government.
Of course Obama, who wanted to “fundamentally change America,” knew what was going on in the Ukraine. Biden could not have bragged the US would withhold money unless the Ukraine fired a prosecutor he knew was investigating a deal with an oil company that Hunter was on the board of. Obama knew, and approved of it. Much as he told the FBI “he wanted to know everything” that went on in the Russian collusion hoax and attempted coup. Obama has had a free pass his whole time in politics.
Hoping that he can keep all his dirty dealings from being uncovered.
How does a former president who hasn’t been in office for four years have the authority to direct the House of Representatives or the Senate for that matter?
Now you know why he never left DC. He’s personally acting as the sentinel to his own legacy.
Could have? that’s the sort of basis on which slander is leveled at President Trump by the left.
Of course Obummer knew…he was the chief corruptant…how many millions did he steal..??
I don’t know about his education since no one that was supposed to be in his classes ever saw him there.
Obama has put back the country decades in race relations. He was the least patriotic president ever. He apologised for WWII.. what a guy. His wife wrote a thesis on how she hates America. They both had great educations and total disregard for America.
of course he knows/knew – the O-Horror had to know – after all that ridiculous excuse of a wife of his thinks he was the bestest, smartest most wunnnerful “Mr. President” ever….
Is there actually anyone who believes, for even a single moment, that Obama DIDN’T know?
odummy needs to be hung from the neck until dead….for sedition, treason and espionage. Next would come killary, pan faced kerry and then every cabinet member that served under the kenyan president.
Ah so the hunter Biden fiasco was Russian disinformation so does that mean that shifty, Pelosi and all those other Democrats wielding those gold pens were in the wrong?!!
Pity the taxpayers can’t get a refund of the dollars the Democrats wasted on their so called impeachment of trump
Like shifty willing to spend $50,000 for a nude photo of trump only to find out he was on Russia’s version of candid camera then it was oh I was only joking
good one micmac
ha Ha , good one
Apparently he liked the rear, of a lot of things. He liked to lead from someone’s behind, etc.
Almost as beautiful as a perp walk (I can dream, can I?)
Yah ! China made him exit the rear of Air Farce One
No – that is exactly the punishment for treason !!!
I am no fan of Obama, but that kind of language is over the line, and has no place on here.
Hung by the neck
Obama is the greatest FRAUD to EVER occupy the White House. From not being an American to always siding with those leaders opposed to what America was promoting. He really needs to be in an Orange Jumpsuit, in Federal Prison.
Haaa!!! Might have known??? Do you remember seeing emails between Smirky Sztrok and Lisa Page discussing the Big Guy wanting to be kept up with what was going on with the fake Dossier, FISA Court investigations?
There’s no ‘Might’ about what OBo knew. He was the Prez and approved everything Comey, Brennan, and Lynch, did with the Trump administration election/Transition Teams. OBo is still interfering in government work.
Actually, it does help. It helps to prove Donald Trump didn’t have anything to do with the Ukrainians, it was Gropey Joe. Just like it wasn’t Donald Trump who had anything to do with the Russians, it was Banshee Hillary. Funny isn’t it? Donald Trump keeps getting blamed for what the democrats have been doing?
It doesn’t help when dopy joe actually says on tv that he told the Ukrainian president that if he doesn’t sack the lead investigator into the company his son was on the board of they’d get no arms shipments
I think it was pretty common knowledge in political circles what the VP under Ohbongo was doing. I keep waiting for the “Perp Walk” of all these high level government officials who must be arrested by the honest and honorable FBI Agents. This has done on long enough, and the fact that “Dementia Joe” is running for President doesn’t give him immunity.
Well put, thank you for the well worded explanation too. Many people in this country don’t know that we are a “Republic” because we don’t have our children saying the pledge of allegiance anymore. I wish they would have everyone in the bleachers at a baseball, football, basketball, anyball, game, to stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance before the National Anthem so that the whole place would hear our pledge to our flag and country with one voice resounding with pride. Too bad we don’t do that. Pretty soon the National Anthem will be left out, and we will forget our National pride because that is what socialists and communists need for us to do in order to take this country from us. I never could understand why people can’t just be happy with their own country. Why are there always little Alexander the Greats in history with the need to conquer the world? Ego, narcissism, evil self centeredness.
This is NOT meant to disrespect what you said at all, but may I say he doesn’t believe in our REPUBLIC! Calling our nation a “DEMOCRACY”, has been a deception used by the Democratic party for a long time. A “DEMOCRACY” is basically “mob rule”, and our REPUBLIC was chosen by our founders as it is more fair and equitable to ALL states. The “contest” for the Presidency is between the 50 STATES, not just between individuals. If that were the case, only 3 or 4 CITIES would forever choose our President, and all other states, and people have NO CHOICES. Just like the dems began using the term like progressive, liberal, democracy, INSTEAD of “communism or socialism”!
. . . . Obama bin Lyin’ !
Obama was no great leader. He is a globalist which means he doesn’t believe in our democracy as it stands. He has an axe to grind and should never have been President.
