It’s about time. The GOP-led House has been slavering to bring charges of some sort against Hunter Biden. So now, a situation exists where Hunter Biden is going to be held accountable for income tax irregularities. Good for Jamie Raskin for moving the conversation on to other issues of glaring importance, far and away from the comparative trivia of all things Hunter Biden: namely, why did Jared Kushner get $2 Billion from the Saudis?
Raskin said in a statement provided to PoliticusUSA:
The U.S. Attorney for Delaware, appointed by former President Trump and kept on by President Biden, has investigated and now criminally charged the son of the sitting President with two misdemeanor tax counts and a firearms count. This development reflects the Justice Department’s continued institutional independence in following the evidence of actual crimes and enforcing the rule of law even in the face of constant criticism and heckling by my GOP colleagues who think that the system of justice should only follow their partisan wishes.
Oversight Committee Republicans have advanced debunked conspiracy theories about President Biden and are now, again, wailing about the work of a Trump appointed U.S. Attorney. Meanwhile, our colleagues have refused to investigate Jared Kushner and Donald Trump’s receipt of billions of dollars from autocratic regimes after handing them a string of outrageous policy favors and concessions.
This is long overdue. This is a major issue, especially in concert with what we’ve learned about Donald Trump showing people war plans to go against Iran. Did he show MBS the war plans? Or did Jared show MBS the war plans? This is the real narrative that this country needs to follow and not some frou frou about Joe Biden’s less than perfect son who once had an issue with drugs. That horse left the barn years ago and has since been beaten to death. Let’s move on to the important issues in our government, how the son-in-law of the former president sold out the country to his buddies in the Middle East.
And it’s not like it’s a new story. Even as early as 2017, Kushner was teamed up with Steve Bannon and Mike Flynn and they were selling nuclear start up kits to the Saudis. Let’s revisit that issue, shall we? National security is on the line here and not Page Six level gossip.
Good for Jamie Raskin, once again.
