Skip to comments.Joe Biden's Family Has Been Getting Rich off His Political Career for Decades
Posted on 10/09/2019 2:07:43 PM PDT by rktman
On Wednesday, The Intercept published a lengthy and detailed exposé on how Joe Biden's family has financially benefited from his career in politics. While Democrats pursue impeachment of Trump for defeating Hillary in 2016, the Democrats are ignoring a huge problem: when Hunter Bidens career is scrutinized, it clearly shows "that he, along with Joe Bidens 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 Bidens family wins the favor of Joe Biden."
In 1973, one year after Joe Biden was elected to the Senate at age 29 , James Biden opened the nightclub Seasons Change with what Politico, referencing contemporaneous local reporting in Delaware, called unusually generous bank loans. When James ran into trouble, Joe, as a senator, later complained that the bank shouldnt have loaned James the money. What Id like to know, Biden told the News Journal in 1977, is how the guy in charge of loans let it get this far. The paper investigated, and sources at the bank said that the loan was made because James was Joes brother.
James, in the 90s, founded Lion Hall Group, which lobbied for Mississippi trial lawyers involved in tobacco litigation. According to Curtis Wilkies book The Fall of the House of Zeus, the trial lawyers wanted James Bidens help pushing Joe Biden on tobacco legislation.

Yep. Politicians have ALWAYS used their position to enrich themselves
Biden’s so stupid he thinks that’s the way it’s supposed to work. How can anyone support this ignorant fool?
True, and it’s wrong.
They hate organized crime, they hate the competition
I dont understand. Is that not the goal of becoming a politician?
Not coincidentally, the word statesman has fallen into disuse. Well, it was sexist anyway...
“... Is that not the goal of becoming a politician...” Uh, ‘aoc’? Just sayin’. Guess she’s sew stoopid she doesn’t no she just boreded the biggist gravee train there is?
The corruption is deep and pervasive.
In case you forgot.
Read all the links......................................incredible and he is running for what?
When he was the Vice President, he did the most STUPID, unthinkable thing for a man in his position. He revealed the names and the unit that killed Bin Laden;”On May 3 2011, at a national event in Washington, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. did the unthinkable, he publicly revealed the identity of the special-operations unit responsible for bin Ladens killing, just to show that he “is in the know”.
His reckless action put at risk the lives of every member of Seal Team 6. The Taliban and other jihadists eager to avenge bin Laden now knew which unit to target. Stunned and shocked, Seal Team Six members immediately realized they were going to be hunted by al Qaeda sympathizers.
Soon after Bidens reckless idiotic speech, an American CH47 Chinook was shot down by a rocket propelled grenade in the Tangi Valley, Maidan Wardak Province, Afghanistan, all 38 aboard were killed including most if not all of Seal Team Six, this incident became known as Extortion 17... After Biden had let the identification out, and before the Chinook was shot down, members of Seal Team 6 had called their families and told them to wipe out all connection to them, including social media, and disassociate themselves as far away from them as possible because they too would be in grave danger as the Taliban would attempt to find them in retaliation...and Biden, well he didn’t even drop a sweat over any of it, and the was just too stupid to realize what he had done.”
Added extra links relative to this. Its easy enough to look up the information yourself as well. These were just a few of many.
This smiling idiot is responsible for the deaths of most Seal team 6 by the Taliban because he let them know which team killed bin laden. What an irresponsible moron.
Why does anyone tell that idiot anything classified?
I want TERM LIMITS...for all.
THAT MUST BE PUT ON EVERY THREAD ! PLEASE!!
I had forgotten that it was Biden who told the world that Seal Team 6 was responsible for Bin Laden’s death!! He got ALL those peop,e KILLED!!
Biden has BLOOD on his Hands!
It’s not just Biden....all of them get rich through corruption. I swear, the last honest politician was President Truman.
