Remember in 2016, when the entire democratic party and MSM and Big Tech were pushing falsified information that Trump was a Russian Asset. because the Russians had some dirt on Trump. It was such a horrible thought, that they opened up a 3 yr investigation to prove it, so he could be removed from office. Even though Trump maintained a strong stance against Russia, while in office.

Biden's son Hunter was bringing in millions of dollars from China to provide access to his father, and actually is compromised by emails on his laptop proving this among other crimes. All of Biden's actions indicate that he is bending to China's every whim, further indicating that he actually is a Chinese asset in the White House. But fucking Crickets about this in the MSM and Big Tech.

Can anyone explain to me why?

Maybe if it were Russia committing the Uyghur genocide, Biden would speak forcibly against it and impose well deserved harsh sanctions, instead of just lumping it in with climate change as targeted oppression. He wouldn't even mention the name China at the UN General Assembly.
Biden reversed US policy lifting restrictions on Confusious Institutes.
Gutted rules protecting our electric grid from Chinese influence.
Shut down investigation into wuhan virus lab.
Offered to send economists to china to assist them with their money problems.
Surrenders Chinese criminal Ming Jao back to China to secure release of Canadian Hostages.

And we aren't even one year into his administration.

wha?!

He was and is, have you not been paying attention to what Fiona Hill has been saying since the impeachment hearings to today? Groveling to Putin, '..now I got to be tough in front of the cameras, you understand.'

and himself on TV...

Or is just another Trump apologist just trying to get ahead of the news wave, history revisionist?

The question is he complacent or was he used, an useful idiot.

Trump is a traitor, a grifter a criminal, even little fuk McConnell said after the second impeachment, when out of office Trump should be criminally prosecuted immediately, with extreme prejudice. Paraphrasing.

And Trump is being prosecuted, the first wave of subpoenas have been issued.

Calling attention to Biden sins does not exonerate Trump.

Plenty of evidence to support Trump's administration actions against Russia.

No... I don't follow Fiona Hill.

This post wasn't to exonerate or clear Trump of anything. I'll leave that up to Durham.
MY point is the glaring contrast of how Biden's "Sins" are in essence parallel to Trumps except just swap China/Russia and you virtually have the same if not similar wrong doings. Biden however seems to be getting a pass. The silence is deafening.

Well the right-wing media where you're getting your talking points is paying attention to Hill lately, revisionist falling out of the woodwork.

Trump did everything for ego and personal gain, totally different, not even close to the same. The silence is probably from the same silence from why are termites are all turning chartreuse.

Is that the right wing talking points you mention?

Hill works at Brookings institute.

Also what was H. Bidens motives if not personal gain, what is "completely different"?

In 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Less than two weeks later, Hunter Biden’s firm inked a $1 billion private equity deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China. The deal was later expanded to $1.5 billion. In short, the Chinese government funded a business that it co-owned along with the son of a sitting vice president.

If it sounds shocking that a vice president would shape US-China policy as his son — who has scant experience in private equity — clinched a coveted billion-dollar deal with an arm of the Chinese government, that’s because it is.
https://nypost.com/2019/05/11/the-troub ... -on-china/
The Chinese blew up the negotiations a few days later.

They had decided to run out the clock on President Trump’s first term, convinced that they would get a much better deal from a future President Biden.

Who can blame them? Biden has a long history of being a friendly voice for US-China relations. The Chinese side had every reason to expect that Biden, like Obama, would turn a blind eye to the theft of American jobs, factories, and intellectual property by an increasingly arrogant and rapacious PRC.

They probably even hoped that he, in return for a few empty promises, would quickly set aside the Trump tariffs that were crippling the Chinese economy.
But Beijing had another reason to bet on Biden: they had given sweetheart deals to his son, Hunter Biden.
As Peter Schweizer has documented in his book, “Secret Empires,” the vice president took his son along on Air Force Two when he flew to Beijing in December 2013.
Not long after the father and son duo returned to the US, Hunter Biden’s small firm received a $1 billion private equity deal from the Chinese government. This was later increased to a cool one-and-a-half billion.
As Schweizer wrote, “The Chinese government was literally funding a business that it co-owned along with the sons of two of America’s most powerful decision-makers.”
Now you see why Beijing’s leaders were convinced that they had Joe Biden in their pocket — or at least in their pocketbook.
At the time, the former vice president seemed like a sure bet — not just to Beijing but to many on this side of the Pacific. The early polls suggested that he was a shoo-in for the Democrat nomination, and the odds-on favorite to beat Trump.

Betting the farm on Biden, the Chinese likely stiffed Trump’s negotiators.
Now they seem to be having second thoughts. Negotiators are crisscrossing the Pacific again, and the Chinese have placed a couple of big orders for farm products.
Are they hedging their bet on Biden, or simply biding their time until they get the election result they want?

Time will tell.

Biden asked the major networks to help quell information being put forth about his family's business
Biden campaign officials Anita Dunn and Kate Bedingfield wrote a letter to network news presidents, chief anchors and the executive producers of the Sunday shows for ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and Fox News Channel, Deadline reported.

“We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuilani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump,” the letter said.

“While you often fact check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.”

6 facts about Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China
1. Joe Biden met with Hunter’s Chinese partners days before they established a new investment firm.
2. BHR is a multibillion-dollar enterprise.
3. Hunter and his partners had prominent roles within the company.
4. BHR represented a unique investment opportunity.
5. BHR invested in strategically sensitive assets in both China and the United States.
6. It wasn’t an isolated incident.
https://nypost.com/2019/10/10/6-facts-a ... -in-china/
Hunter Biden appears to still be on the board of a Chinese private equity firm he co-founded, despite his lawyer pledging late last year that the potential first son would resign, a report alleges.

Chinese business records, the Daily Caller reports, still list Robert Hunter Biden — the younger Biden’s full name — as a director and board member of BHR Partners.

George Mesires, a lawyer for Biden, said back in October that Biden would be relinquishing his director title “on or by October 31,” but the outlet reported that business records it obtained were submitted as recently as March 24.

Mesires told The Post the report was inaccurate and related to Biden’s board seat being left vacant after his departure.

“Hunter Biden resigned from the board of directors in October 2019 and has not been on the board since then. Period. This database will be updated when there is a successor named for the board seat that Hunter Biden left vacant when he resigned in October,” he said in a statement.

Biden approached Chinese businessman Jonathan Li, who ran Chinese private-equity fund Bhoai Capital, with business partner Devon Archer in 2012 about forming a new company to invest in Chinese capital, as well as capital from other countries, according to a New York Magazine profile of the vice president’s son.

In November 2013, the three signed contracts setting up their fund, named BHR Partners. Hunter became an unpaid member of the fund’s board, but declined to take an equity stake in the company until after his father left the White House, the magazine reported.

Since then, the firm has invested at least $2.5 billion on behalf of its clients in automotive, energy, mining and technology deals, according to the Wall Street Journal.

One month after signing their contracts, Biden joined his father on a trip on Air Force Two to Beijing for a meeting between the vice president and President Xi Jinping. During the visit, Hunter arranged a meeting and handshake between his father and Li in the lobby of the VP’s hotel.

GOP senator aims to release Hunter Biden investigation report this summer
The move, which garnered little attention at the time, alarmed some Biden advisers, according to the magazine. Those in the VP’s orbit worried about the optics of the meeting.

One senior Obama White House aide lamented to the publication that Hunter’s actions raised concerns about whether he “was leveraging access for his benefit, which just wasn’t done in that White House. Optics really mattered, and that seemed to be cutting it pretty close, even if nothing nefarious was going on.”

After his father left office, Biden took a 10% equity share in BHR Partners, but when he announced his departure from the board, he did not say whether his equity stake would be sold.

The younger Biden also pledged that he would not serve on the boards of any foreign-owned companies if his father wins the 2020 presidential election

Left showing hypocrisy with China meddling revelations: Goodwin
China Joe and Beijing Biden could be more than pejorative nicknames Trumpers throw at the Democrats’ nominee. It turns out there is some evidence behind the gamesmanship.

A new national intelligence report says foreign adversaries have their presidential preferences and are trying to tilt our election. Among the findings, China and Iran want Biden in the White House while Russia favors the incumbent.

Guess which part of those findings is getting most of the media coverage. Hint: You don’t need a hint.

Dems and their media handmaidens can’t quit their shared passion for picturing President Trump as a Russian agent. The New York Times and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Frick and Frack of the far left, insist that the Russian role is so much larger and more effective than that of either China or Iran.

How would they know? Why, naturally, anonymous sources, those “officials briefed on the intelligence,” said the Times in its latest effort to carry water for the anti-Trump Deep State.

Both also doubt the accuracy of the Biden findings, with the Times suggesting, without evidence, that the push for Biden was included as a political sop to Trump. Pelosi told Fox News that the analysts “try to blanket it with the Chinese, they said, prefer Biden — we don’t know that, but that’s what they’re saying, but they’re not really getting involved in the presidential election.”

Wow, remember when Trump was excoriated for doubting the intelligence agencies? Remember Chuck Schumer’s ominous warning to Trump in January 2017 when he said: “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you”?

But now it’s hunky-dory to dump on the spooks. It’s the First Law of Politics: Anything that can be twisted to make Trump look bad will be twisted.

The double standards shout to the high heavens, especially when you consider what the FBI did with thin gruel in 2016. Based largely on the unverified Steele dossier, financed by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, and the tall tale about Russians having Clinton’s emails that involved George Papadopoulos, the FBI opened “Crossfire Hurricane” and spied on the Trump campaign.

It turned out to be the biggest nothingburger in American history — but by the time special counsel Robert Mueller and his band of zealots finally admitted in 2019 there was no campaign collusion, the media had worked with Dems and investigators to severely damage the new administration and the lives of many innocent people.

Hunter Biden’s deals ‘served’ China and Chinese military, new film claims
Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China served the “strategic interests” of the country’s communist government and military — and may have imperiled American national security, claims a new documentary exclusively previewed by The Post.

“Riding the Dragon: The Bidens’ Chinese Secrets” highlights several deals that Hunter Biden was involved in as a board member of the Beijing-based BHR Partners investment firm.

The film also alleges that Hunter was only able to get meetings with Chinese officials — and secure $1 billion in funding — “because of who his father was: vice president of the United States” and then-President Barack Obama’s “point person on US policy towards China.”

The 41-minute documentary is narrated by best-selling writer Peter Schweizer, who authored 2015’s “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich” and has previously written about Hunter’s business dealings in China.
https://nypost.com/2020/09/03/new-film- ... ith-china/
WASHINGTON — A Senate committee is investigating a bombshell cache of documents about Hunter Biden’s foreign dealings that was acquired by a Delaware computer repairman and exposed Wednesday by The Post.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee confirmed it is working with the repairman, whose identity was confirmed by The Post, to verify documents from the hard drive.

“There are so many red flags about the Biden family trying to cash in on the Vice President’s position that it can be hard to keep them straight,” Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) told The Post.

“Today’s report raises more questions that must be resolved,” Johnson said.

Burisma and Ukraine
Crack and Hookers and ties to human trafficking

Joe's refusal to make senate records public.

Hunter Hunter Hunter Hillary Hillary Hillary Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi.
I see a pattern with ya, if there's no stories on a subject you wanna believe it's a blackout. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
Emails unearthed by the New York Times undercut a key allegation made by John Durham, the prosecutor appointed by former Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate the FBI's 2016 probe of the Trump campaign.

Specifically, the indictment alleged that former Hillary Clinton attorney Michael Sussman alerted the FBI to allegedly suspicious computer traffic between a Trump Tower server and a server connected to a Russian bank despite the fact that the people who uncovered the traffic did not think it was anything nefarious.

However, the Times report shows that emails between the researchers suggest that they took the possibility of Trump officials having back-channel communications with the Russian bank very seriously at the time of their investigation.
The full email obtained by the Times puts the quotes cited in the Durham indictment in a much different context.

"In the narrow scope of what you have defined above, I agree wholeheartedly that it is plausible," wrote the researcher. "If the white paper intends to say that there are communications between at least Alfa and Trump, which are being intentionally hidden by Alfa and Trump I absolutely believe that is the case."

Another example comes from an email written by David Dagon, a Georgia Institute of Technology data scientist who was one of the researchers investigating the server traffic.

"The indictment also suggests Mr. Dagon's support for the paper's hypothesis was qualified, describing his email response as 'acknowledging that questions remained, but stating, in substance and in part, that the paper should be shared with government officials,'" writes the Times. "The text of that email shows Mr. Dagon was forcefully supportive. He proposed editing the paper to declare as 'fact' that it was clear 'that there are hidden communications between Trump and Alfa Bank,' and said he believed the findings met the probable cause standard to open a criminal investigation."

Remarkably thin': Legal experts slam John Durham case against Clinton campaign lawyer

In indictment for Michael Sussmann as part of the investigation into the origin of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) inquiry into the Trump campaign's ties with Russia, legal experts are still not impressed.
In fact, according to Business Insider, legal experts view the case Durham has built against Sussmann as "unusually — even remarkably — thin." Speaking to the publication, Randall Eliason, a former federal prosecutor and current law professor at George Washington University Law School, weighed in with his take on the case.

"Proving this case is going to be remarkably difficult," Eliason said of Durham's case. While Trump has adamantly insisted that the investigation would uncover a "deep state" conspiracy, that has yet to come to fruition.
