IS THE WHITE HOUSE A BIDEN FAMILY CASH BUSINESS?
Family Business – January 29, 2021
Cronyism – White House – Hunter Biden
By: Nathaniel Ballantyne
Having a close family member in the White House could be an irresistible money making venture where relatives sell access to those who are seeking to influence the President’s decisions or other policy makers. Relatives’ money-making ventures, most prominently his son Hunter’s overseas dealings, have long dogged Biden. But it’s taking on a new dimension now that he’s in the President of the United States.
It has not been a full week into his presidency but yet Biden already has had to answer for matters related to his family. A law firm ad promoting Frank Biden’s relationship with the president caused a stir when it ran on Inauguration Day.
A federal investigation into Biden’s son, Hunter, has invited scrutiny of just how strict a firewall he’ll keep between the White House and the Justice Department. And another of the president’s brothers, James, has previously come under fire for his business dealings.
Granted, this is nothing approaching Trump’s four-year war on the mainstream media. But all is not peachy between Biden and the nation’s newspaper of record. Alex Thompson and Theo Meyer with the skinny in Thursday’s Transition Playbook, headlined “Biden to NYT: Drop dead”: “JOE BIDEN and Republicans are united on at least one thing: They can’t stand The New York Times editorial board.
The august newspaper of record has long been a popular punching bag for conservatives, but on Thursday morning it was the Biden administration jabbing the Grey Lady, after it published an editorial instructing the president to ‘Ease Up on the Executive Actions.’
“JOHN ANZALONE, the Biden campaign’s pollster, told Transition Playbook, ‘It’s tough being so high up in the ivory tower. You can’t really make sound judgment because you can’t see the ground.’”
