Hunter Biden corruption evidence overwhelms even as left ignores it


The millions sure do add up when you’re a Biden.

And not because you have any particular business skills.

Newly revealed bank records show President Joe Biden’s family and allies hauled in a jaw-dropping $20 million from foreign sources in Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine, some of whom personally dined with the prez himself in Washington.

Documents released by the House Oversight Committee also confirm that Hunter Biden raked in a cool $1 million a year from Ukrainian gas company Burisma, starting when dad — oh-so-coincidentally — took charge of Team Obama’s Ukraine portfolio in 2014.

They show a Kazakhstani businessman, Kenes Rakishev, gave the first son $142,300 that year to buy a car — reportedly a Porsche.

Yet another $3.5 million from Russian billionaire and Moscow’s former first lady Yelena Baturina went to an entity controlled by Hunter and his business partner, Devon Archer — as Archer’s congressional deposition last month detailed.

Other records show funding went to nine different members of the Biden clan.

Why are all these foreigners paying so much to the Bidens?

The president’s defenders, like The Washington Post’s Philip Bump, claim there’s still no smoking-gun proof of an outright bribe.

And besides, the money went to Hunter, not the president himself.

Please.

Even if these moneybags were dumping millions on The Family just for a dinner with Joe (an extremely doubtful suggestion), that in itself would be highly unethical: Public officials aren’t supposed to sell their titles for personal gain, or even the benefit of their relatives.

Just imagine if the son of a sitting Republican vice president was getting a Porsche, tens of millions in cash and even a pricey diamond — all for access to Dad (and, no, not just the “illusion of access”).

Democrats and their media backers would lose their minds.

Instead, they now want Americans to ignore all the Bidens’ shady deals and millions in transfers simply because no actual recording has yet emerged of the prez accepting cash in a secret envelope in some dark parking garage somewhere.

“During Joe Biden’s vice presidency, Hunter Biden sold [his father] as ‘the brand’ to reap millions from oligarchs in Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine,” Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) charged Wednesday.

“It appears no real services were provided other than access to the Biden network, including Joe Biden himself.”

That access came in the form of — at the very least — meals at that DC eatery and phone calls with the very oligarchs who ponied up the cash.

Oh, and, as Comer noted, Joe Biden clearly “knew about his son’s business dealings and allowed himself to be ‘the brand’ sold to enrich the Biden family” while VP.

Yet the prez and his team have been lying and obfuscating about his involvement — and what he knew — for years.

The Biden Justice Department has worked overtime to bury any legitimate probe.

Congress should at least subpoena Hunter (who’s at the heart of all the corruption and who’d face perjury charges if he lied in sworn testimony), if not Joe himself.

Demanding the president’s bank records could also shed light on the extent to which the president personally benefited.

The ever-growing evidence so far is enough to warrant at least that much.
