Democrats have refused to address the massive conflicts of interest stemming from Joe Biden’s family “cashing in on Joe Biden’s career for decades." But at least some on the left are still brave enough to call out the former VP’s corruption.
The Intercept reported, “The problem for Democrats is that a review of Hunter Biden’s career shows clearly that he, along with Joe Biden’s brother James, has been trading on their family name for decades, cashing in on the implication and sometimes the explicit argument that giving money to a member of Joe Biden’s family wins the favor of Joe Biden".
Joe Biden’s family has been cashing in on his career for decades. Democrats need to acknowledge that. https://t.co/JiLs1q8x3Z

As The Intercept details below, “trading on” Joe Biden’s name is the family’s business goes back to the 1970s with his brother James. In the wake of Hunter Biden being paid $50,000 per month to be on the board of the Ukrainian energy company, Ryan Grim cuts though all the noise and notes the following:
“Biden’s very presence on the board of the company itself corrupted the process, creating the appearance that the Americans were hypocritical about their talk of corruption and self-dealing. At the time, here’s how Daria Kaleniuk, head of Ukraine’s Anti-Corruption Action Center, put it to the Wall Street Journal: ‘If an investigator sees the son of the vice president of the United States is part of the management of a company … that investigator will be uncomfortable pushing the case forward.’ That, of course, is simply obvious, and it is the entire reason Hunter Biden was paid so handsomely to do nothing but sell his name to the company. That’s corruption. Enough.”
And James Clapper pointed the finger at Barack Obama as the Russia Investigation Mastermind! The RATS are Eating Their Own!
