More comedy from Comer

…to add to his mountain of evidence bullsiht.

Yesterday I clicked on an “all coverage” link to this story on Google, and this is what Google sent me:



Yikes!

So, here it is in a nutshell: Dredging through Hunter Biden’s personal and business bank accounts, they found monthly payments from one of Hunter’s entities that did business with the Chinese to Joe Biden.

Smoking gun! Thus the frothing at the mouth in the right wingnutosphere above. ‘This reeks of corruption” says Hannity. “House Oversight Committee chairman reveals how China 'buys politicians off'. They even got a former mobster (apparently, per Fox News, a good news source) to say it was “mind blowing”.

So, considering Jared got $2B from Saudi Arabia to “manage”, (even though he’s not actually a financial advisor and never has been - I wonder what annual fee he charges to “manage” $2B?), what kinda money are we talking about here? Millions? More?

Uh, no. Three payments of $1380. Oh, and it was from his son’s law firm, not China.

A rather specific (and small) amount for someone selling influence, don’t you think?

This turns out to be exactly the amount of the younger Biden’s monthly car payments (for a Ford Raptor). Hunter was down on his luck ant the time, and turned to the Bank of Dad to help him avoid repossession. Don’t believe it? Would the New York Post (who reported about this in 2022) lie to you?

If that still sounds like a convenient story to cover up a “mind blowing” total of $4140, you could also look at emails from Hunter’s personal assistant:

Quote

Hunter’s then personal assistant, Katie Dodge, sent multiple messages regarding his bills. In one, sent on January 17, she said that Biden would pay his son’s bills “in the short-term as Hunter transitions in his career.”

That email included a PDF of the payments Hunter needed to make. The document showed Hunter owed $1,380 to his father for a Ford Raptor truck. Dodge had reminded Hunter about the $1,380 truck repayment he owed his father in an email she had sent three days earlier.

And BTW, when was all of this? 2018 and 2019, well after Biden left office.

So, much like the previous pseudo-scandal (in which Joe gave his brother a $200k bridge loan for a house, which was paid back shortly thereafter, which Comer inexplicably characterized as “money laundering”), Joe covered Hunter’s car payments for three months. Which Hunter paid back, with a check from his own law firm. With documentation of what it was for. And supporting previous emails reminding him he needed to pay back his dad $4140.

And somehow this is a smoking gun proving that Biden was paid off by China in return for influence. In 2019.

The more ridiculous the assertion, the louder these guys shout about it.

Brandolini's law - The amount of energy needed to refute bullshite is an order of magnitude greater than that needed to produce it.

Every accusation is a confession.

They think it reeks of corruption because they know what they are doing reeks of corruption; therefore, what everyone does is corrupt.

Well, the good news is I can never go into politics because I helped out my kid when he was getting started.

The world is just a tiny bit safer due to that.
