I was referring to Joe bringing Hunter into situations where he could meet the right people. It was what all connected parents do for their kids and then the kid lives off their name.

It was not like Trump bringing Vanky into his first meeting with Abe and her then walking out of that meeting with a shoe deal.

You know all those boxes they found at Mar-a-Lago? Those boxes they found at Mar-a-Lago.

I'm not sure it's fair to blame a son for the sins of the father, but just for the record 9/11 Rudy's father spent time in Sing-Sing.

“unsatisfactory in all aspects" pretty much sums up the entire Chump Crime Family.

Unless one seeks a bad example.

As we have seen, Congress has abdicated any responsibility for anything to DOJ which is run by Republicans now and forever. So nothing will come of this. And by the way there is still no official notice of hearings in the J6 Committee website. June 9 is 6 days from now. This is what they have up right now.

There are no upcoming hearings

DOJ has no authority to enforce Congressional subpoenas. The law only allows it to charge Criminal Contempt which is a minor misdemeanor, even if convicted it would result in a suspended sentence and that’s after after all the inevitable appeals. It’s such a minor crime anyway DOJ would likely drop the charges rather than fight an appeal.

Republicans don't care, because the Saudis are only "hurting the people they are supposed to be hurting."

I’ll let AG Garland know of his change in party affiliation.

Honestly I couldn’t give two hairy shits about Hunter Biden. He’s old news, and small potatoes.

Nobody accepts payment after the fact for grift, because it’s too easy for the person who owes to say, “What are you talking about, I don’t owe you anything; sue me.” It’s an investment against a future Assmouth presidency, made in 2021 when he still had a snowball’s chance in 2024. It’s looking like a piss poor investment now.

Criminal Contempt is ludicrous. Even if convicted he gets a suspended sentence. And that’s after endless appeals. Nothing in Criminal Contempt compels cooperation with subpoenas. It’s a way for Democrat Institutionalists like Pelosi and Hoyer to avoid responsibility.

No excuses on Hunter Biden but I just wanted to put a point out.

Biden has always excused him and propped him up because, to him, Hunter is still the little kid who just lost his mother and sister.

Kids often come out of trauma as achievers who try to use perfection as a shield against loss but also often come out of trauma angry at the loss and fearful and bury that in misbehavior. Beau and Hunter seem to, respectively, fit those types.

I doubt that it was possible for Joe to love them equally but he wanted to and so he helped Hunter and forgave Hunter.

...which did lead to Hunter having access that he then manipulated.

It was a bit less blatant than the Trumps but still more than it should have been.

But the difference from the Trumps is that Donald uses his children as mere vehicles in his own grift. There is no love or concern for them.

Joe should have been more circumspect but his motive was love, not greed.

None of which matters in an ethics investigation or in the law, but I just wanted to say it.

Unless they are willing to enforce this via subpoena enforced by inherent contempt—what am I saying of course nothing will ever come of this.
