Since his election, President Trump has faced constant pressure to release his financial records. While many past presidents have done so, President Trump has chosen to not disclose any financial documents. For the record, there is not a mandate that he has to do so. Even so, Democrats continue to cry foul demanding the records.
Recently, the Supreme Court took action to block Trump’s records from being released. The NY Times article states this suggests that since the ruling took 5 votes to pass, the justices determined this was worth further consideration. It sets up an interesting time and battle in the coming days for President Trump and legislators out for his records.
Then enter Biden, Hunter Biden that is. The Daily Mail reports that Hunter Biden requested a protective order to seal his financial records. Hunter Biden is in the middle of a custody battle in Arkansas. He states releasing his financial records could be used maliciously and be harmful to him. My initial reaction to this report is “what is Hunter hiding,” but I think that we have to look a little deeper.
First, Hunter Biden is a focus point in the Ukraine scandal with his father, Joe Biden. We read all the reports stating that he accepted the conflict of interest position with the gas company. We know there is more information regarding China as well. Republicans must keep their focus on this situation, however. If Republicans demand Biden release his tax records, well then Democrats have ammunition against Trump.
Believe me, I understand this is not an apples to apples comparison of situations, but I know how the left thinks. I’m certain that Biden’s financial records will release some interesting information that could implicate his father further. So how should we talk about this?
Conservatives must continue to press for investigations into the Biden’s. Not solely for Ukraine, but also for the China situation as well. As more information comes out, it will prove the issues with Joe Biden. Right now, the left cannot afford to lose Biden. He is their only hope to beat Trump in 2020. We can be almost certain that Biden did hold money ransom for personal gain. There is proof in the payments made to Hunter Biden.
This is a fear for Democrats. They have been unable to provide proof of President Trump’s “bribery” as they call it. They simply have opinions and theory, while there was actual money that exchanged hands in the Biden situation. If the Democrats truly sought to deal with corruption, they would investigate Joe Biden.
Yet, the Democrats are more focused on maintaining secrecy. The money for Hunter Biden will remain secret for now. Once an investigation is open, his financial records will be as well. Personally, I believe the media is the least of the Biden’s worries.
