The China Syndrome

 

Just as he did on Monday prior to releasing the full Part 1 video of #ExposeCNN, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe uploaded single clips of the most newsworthy exchanges.

This clip features CNN’s Senior Justice Correspondent Evan Perez saying, “Now I’ll tell you this. Joe Biden has a problem. Because his son was trading on his name. It looks bad, it smells bad. It’s not illegal. Nothing is illegal about it. (inaudible) I mean, you’re benefitting from your father’s name. You’re trading on his name.”

The whistleblower is heard saying, “Everybody does that, though.”

Perez replies, “Then that’s the problem. How do you go and say that ‘Donald Trump is the person, get him out of here’ and convict him when your son is doing the same sh**?

We have no idea if Hunter Biden did or did not commit a crime. We do know that he benefitted financially from his father’s position.

The more concerning issue is Joe Biden’s threat to withhold $1 billion of U.S. aid if the Ukrainian president didn’t fire then-Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin who was about to investigate his son “in the next six hours.” Although Biden maintains he wanted Shokin fired because he was corrupt and that it had nothing to do with son, that sounds rather unlikely.

During his interview with ABC News on Monday, Hunter Biden said:

In retrospect, look, I think that it was poor judgment on my part. Is that I think that it was poor judgment because I don’t believe now, when I look back on it — I know that there was — did nothing wrong at all. However, was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is…a swamp in—in—in many ways? Yeah.

So I take full responsibility for that. Did I do anything improper? No, not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever. Did I make a mistake based upon some ethical lapse? Absolutely not.

He did admit that Burisma would “probably not” have offered him a position on their board if his father had not been Joe Biden. He said, “I gave a hook to some very unethical people to act in illegal ways to try to do some harm to my father. That’s where I made the mistake.”

His lack of self-awareness is right up there with Hillary Clinton’s.

I’ll be posting additional clips or perhaps the full Part 2 video of #ExposeCNN as they become available.
