In Brief: All About the Bidens

An excellent one-stop-shop on Biden family corruption and influence peddling.

Joe Biden and his son Hunter have led a corrupt family enterprise for years, trading on the family name to make a few (million) bucks. RealClearInvestigations has now put together a Hunter Biden Reader, which it calls “a compendium of news reports aggregated across the political spectrum documenting the dubious dealings and apparent influence peddling of Joe Biden’s errant son and other family members.”

Notably, it illustrates a partisan divide that now defines so much political debate and news coverage. Though much of the story was reported even-handedly and in-depth by some news outlets, including RealClearInvestigations, it was suppressed at crucial times by anti-Trump Democrats; left-leaning legacy media outlets relying on inaccurate or dishonest and probably partisan intelligence sources; and social media giants Facebook and Twitter.

The greatest consequence was the stifling of an October surprise of potentially historic proportions: Emails from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, suggesting an aspiring president mixed up in corrupt foreign dealings by his son, did not break through to wide public awareness during the 2020 presidential campaign, as polling indicated. To this day, the Wikipedia entry for Hunter Biden makes a single passing mention of “a laptop purportedly belonging to Biden.”

RCI recounts the several ways that the Biden laptop story was deliberately suppressed before continuing:

It wasn’t until after the election that the New York Post was vindicated: With the laptop in its possession for some time, the FBI revealed that Hunter Biden had long been under investigation, but the probe was kept quiet for fear of tilting the presidential campaign.

Now it is clear the Hunter Biden story is not going away. Revelations continue to emerge from hard drive of the laptop, first obtained by Trump lawyer Rudolph Giuliani. A new book on the Bidens by Ben Schreckinger of Politico, well received by major media, has verified some emails on the laptop. And ethical questions continue to be raised (as recently as last week) over anticipated high-priced sales of novice painter Hunter’s abstract artwork to anonymous buyers.

RCI’s Hunter Biden Reader, a standing feature to be updated as needed, is arranged by the topic areas below, hyperlinking to reading in further detail.

RCI highlights “five foundational articles” before dividing out further reading by topics, such as the laptop, Hunter Biden’s influence peddling in both Ukraine and China, Hunter’s personal life, and other categories. It’s an excellent one-stop-shop on the Bidens.
