President Trump conducted an interview on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, where he urged Attorney General William Barr to get on the ball and “act fast” to “appoint somebody” to start investigating Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings, especially after the discoveries made on a water-damaged laptop believed to belong to the former vice president’s son.
During the interview, Trump slammed Biden and his son saying he “walked around like a vacuum.”
“This is the laptop from hell,” Trump said. “Even if he didn’t get all of this money, you can’t go to China and have the son walk out with $1.5 billion. … You can’t go to Ukraine with $83,000 a month. … You can’t get $3.5 million from the mayor of Moscow’s wife.”
“And you didn’t have a job before your father was vice president,” Trump continued. “You can’t go and go with your father and every stop you make, you pick up $1 billion.”
He added: “The vice president got a kickback, and everybody knows it, and they’ve known it a long time.”
The president was referring to an email allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden, and obtained by Fox News. The email, dated May 13, 2017, includes a discussion of “renumeration packages” for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm. The email appeared to identify Hunter Biden as “Chair/Vice Chair depending on an agreement with CEFC,” an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co.
A note attached to the email message mentions that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” And then there’s some information about some kind of equity split that references “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”
Who is the “big guy?”
Well, there’s a lot of speculation floating around that the identity of this individual is the former vice president himself.
“We’ve got to get the attorney general to act,” the president told Fox News. “He’s gotta act, and he’s gotta act fast, and he’s gotta appoint somebody.”The president added: “This is major corruption, and we have to know about this before the election. The attorney general has to act.”
Many other Republicans in the House are in agreement with the president that Barr needs to do something immediately. Will that actually happen? Guess we’ll find out sooner rather than later.
