Former business associate provides testimony implicating the President in a bribery scheme involving a foreign company and raises concerns about Joe Biden’s knowledge and involvement.
Joe Biden’s Role in Business Dealings
Testimony reveals that Joe Biden actively participated in his son’s business dealings and attended meetings with foreign business associates on multiple occasions while he was Vice President.
The Ukrainian Prosecutor and Bribery Scheme
The alleged bribery scheme centers around pressuring Hunter Biden to seek Washington D.C.’s help in dealing with a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating the company, potentially violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
Republican Alignments and Democrat Disputes
Devon Archer’s testimony aligns with the Republican version of events regarding Joe Biden’s role in the firing of the Ukrainian prosecutor, which Democrats had previously disputed during President Trump’s impeachment investigation.
Stream of Services as a Ground for Prosecution
Although an explicit quid pro quo is not established, legal experts suggest that a “stream of services” over time could still be grounds for prosecuting bribery, potentially putting Joe Biden at risk.
Demanding Further Scrutiny
The emerging evidence from Archer’s testimony demands further investigation, leading some to argue for a congressional committee with subpoena powers to uncover the truth behind the Bidens’ involvement.
Implications for the Biden Family
As the investigation unfolds, the implications of the testimony could have significant consequences for the Biden family and potentially raise questions about the integrity of the Department of Justice’s handling of Hunter Biden’s legal matters.
The Bribery Scheme in Question
The closed-door testimony suggests that a foreign company paid Hunter Biden to protect its reputation from legal consequences, potentially implicating President Joe Biden in a bribery scheme.
Joe Biden’s Knowledge and Involvement
The testimony indicates that Joe Biden was aware of his son’s business dealings and actively participated in them, attending meetings with foreign business associates while he was Vice President.
Violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act
The involvement of the Bidens in these dealings raises concerns about potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, adding legal gravity to the allegations.
Comparisons to Past Bribery Convictions
Arrangements where access or value is exchanged for benefits, even without an explicit quid pro quo, have led to bribery convictions for politicians in the past, potentially creating legal problems for Joe Biden.
Unveiling the Truth
Only a comprehensive investigation, similar to an impeachment inquiry, with subpoena powers can effectively uncover the truth behind the Bidens’ involvement, given the weight of the emerging evidence from Archer’s testimony.
