According to a report in The Conservative Opinion, campaign officials for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign was clear about topics that President Donald Trump was not to bring up during their first explosive presidential debate on Tuesday evening.
The publication reported that the Biden campaign warned against bringing up would-be first son Hunter Biden while the pair were squaring off, saying that it could backfire on the current president.
According to the publication, Biden Campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates in a statement “Joe Biden is ready for anything. But if Donald Trump goes there, it will backfire.”
He went on to say that, “The country is reeling from the pandemic because of Donald Trump’s erratic leadership, which has plunged our economy into the worst downturn in 90 years. We don’t but that even Donald Trump is stupid enough to think he can dodge these emergencies with smears about Hunter Biden.”
“For Donald Trump to demonstrate that the only case he can make for himself is to lash out at Joe Biden’s children would be the ultimate admission that his presidency is a weak, pathetic failure,” the Biden spokesperson added.
While Biden’s campaign has been showing a lot of bluster where the former vice president’s son is concerned, however, the rest of the nation seems a bit more concerned. Thanks to questions about Hunter’s business dealings a bombshell report showed not only ties to individuals believed to be involved in human trafficking but some suspicious business dealings with Russia.
According to the Senate report, Hunter Biden’s investment firm received at least one wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the richest woman in Russia, in the amount of $3.5 million dollars.
“The report indicated that Baturina, the widow of Yury Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow had a ‘financial relationship’ with Biden but did not go into detail on why the wire transfer took place,” the Conservative Opinion reported.
“Baturina became Russia’s only female billionaire when her plastics company, Inteko, received a series of Moscow municipal contracts while her husband was mayor,” the report says.
Despite massive press coverage to the contrary, the Senate’s report points to a much stronger connection between Biden’s immediate family and Russian entities than any connection between Trump, his family or campaign, and any Eastern European entities.
That connection isn’t even including the well-known bord that Hunter Biden was part of that paid him to consult in a business that he had no real expertise in. Questions about why the then-vice president’s son would be asked to sit on the board of an oil and gas company looking to make deals with the United States caused Americans to ask whether they were essentially a fancy way of greasing palms to make their international dealings go smoother.
Biden has consistently criticized the president for not looking out for the interest of the United States or working to underhandedly manipulate during international diplomacy, however, his efforts might have somewhat overlooked his own personal liability on the subject.
At this point, the American people would do well to ask themselves which potentially troubling ties between the top presidential contenders and other countries are actually provable and which are confusion and misdirection on the part of lobbyist groups masquerading as the media.
If Americans were able to actually weigh the facts instead of being presented with possible misinformation that someone wants them to see, they might be able to make an informed decision about who should serve as the president.
As it is, voters first have to decide who they believe is least likely to be lying to them, and then dig into which information they consider credible.
