NBC News has turned on Joe Biden.
On Friday morning, the broadcast news network unveiled a damaging report exposing the president for having taken his son Hunter Biden on a China trip in 2013. Watch:
“A 2013 trip to China getting new attention this morning, not for what Joe Biden did, but for who he brought with him, his son Hunter, joining the then vice president on the official visit to Beijing,” NBC News reported. “Along with Hunter’s daughter Finnigan, unknown to the press back then, Hunter Biden was forming a Chinese private equity fund planning to raise money, including from Chinese investors.”

This is odd framing: ‘Unknown to the press.’ The sitting vice president’s family finances and business affairs are not obscure private matters of anonymous citizens, but should be public record for one of the most powerful politicians in the world. NBC News thus damns itself and the rest of the U.S. mainstream press for ignoring such a business trip, which took place in the land of America’s nemesis.
“Years later, Hunter Biden acknowledged that during the trip he met with a Chinese banker, which his spokesperson describes as a social visit, not a business one 10 days after the Biden’s trip,” the NBC News report continued. “Shanghai authorities issued the fund’s business license.”
It’s amazing what the mainstream media can dig up when the deep state sets its mind to getting rid of the sitting president.
New York Post writer and “Laptop from Hell” author Miranda Devine revealed the actual reason the entire mainstream media is reporting in earnest on the Hunter Biden story.
“We know that Hunter Biden is being investigated over potential tax evasion and money laundering, and as you just mentioned, Foreign Agent Registration Act violations, Devine said. “And that means lobbying for, you know, overseas, lobbying the American government for overseas interests.”
“Now, who knows where the grand jury will go with that,” she added. “But you can assume that the reason that these media outfits that completely ignored the story and sneered at The New York Post are now coming out and admitting that the laptop is real and that those emails that we published were authentic because they want to get out ahead of that grand jury investigation when it comes to fruition, which should be fairly soon, because they’ve been busy at it since 2018 and they upped the pace last year. We know that at least one of Hunter Biden’s business partners, perhaps as many as three, have testified last summer to that grand jury.”
On Wednesday, 532 days late, CNN suddenly decided to start taking the Hunter Biden laptop investigation seriously. Watch:
“You’re reporting here because this is very, very bad for the president’s son,” CNN host Brianna Keilar said.
“It’s an investigation, as you pointed out, going back to 2018,” CNN’s Senior Justice Correspondent Evan Perez said. “And right now, prosecutors in Delaware are focusing on a number of things, including whether Hunter Biden and, and some of his business associates violated laws, including tax money, laundering, laws, and foreign lobbying laws.”
“A lot of this has to do with Hunter Biden’s time working with this company called Burisma, an energy company in Ukraine,” Perez continued. “He was getting paid as much as $50,000 a month for that company during a time that Joe Biden, his father was vice president, was in charge of handling Ukraine issues for the Obama administration. And that of course raised questions of, of a conflict.”
“And so what we know is this investigation, you know, for a while, it has been going on and it seemed to not, not a lot was going on recently,” he added. “A lot of activity has picked up. We know witnesses have gone in to talk to the grand jury in Delaware. We know of witnesses who are going in to talk to investigators in the next few weeks.”
“So we know that there’s a lot of activity now picking up,” he said. “He’s not been charged. He says that, Hunter Biden says that he committed no wrongdoing. And that he says at the end of this, he believes he’ll be cleared.”
“But obviously, as you pointed out, this is a political mess for the sitting president to have his son being investigated by the Justice Department, his own Justice Department,” he concluded.
Senior Legal Analyst Elie Honig added that this is a “very real, very substantial investigation of potentially serious federal crimes.”

CNN also confessed that the Hunter Biden laptop must be real.
“There are a lot of issues that the Justice Department are looking into, including, of course, this laptop – on the right-wing – has featured a lot of stories about Hunter Biden,” CNN’s Evan Perez said. “We know the FBI has possession of it and that they believe it is his laptop.”
On Tuesday, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz entered the Hunter Biden laptop’s contents into the congressional record during a House Judiciary Committee hearing.
The Washington Post has also finally gotten around to doing critical reporting on the Biden family international corruption scandal.
“While many aspects of Hunter Biden’s financial arrangement with CEFC China Energy have been previously reported and were included in a Republican-led Senate report from 2020, a Washington Post review confirmed many of the key details and found additional documents showing Biden family interactions with Chinese executives,” WaPo reported.
“Over the course of 14 months, the Chinese energy conglomerate and its executives paid $4.8 million to entities controlled by Hunter Biden and his uncle, according to government records, court documents and newly disclosed bank statements, as well as emails contained on a copy of a laptop hard drive that purportedly once belonged to Hunter Biden,” the report added.
But the Washington Post was careful to note that it did not find hard evidence of President Biden personally and directly benefiting from Hunter Biden’s deals. The report, however, suggests his activities enriched the Biden family.
“The Post did not find evidence that Joe Biden personally benefited from or knew details about the transactions with CEFC, which took place after he had left the vice presidency and before he announced his intentions to run for the White House in 2020,” the Post said.
“But the new documents — which include a signed copy of a $1 million legal retainer, emails related to the wire transfers, and $3.8 million in consulting fees that are confirmed in new bank records and agreements signed by Hunter Biden — illustrate the ways in which his family profited from relationships built over Joe Biden’s decades in public service,” the report added.
Despite the broadcast news networks’ blackout of Hunter Biden coverage, the evidence has become compelling that Hunter Biden, and by extension, the entire Biden family, is involved in a vast network of corrupt business deals that compromised the administration with foreign governments.
The news media is finally reporting it. Because they know the ugly truth is about to come out anyway in the form of a grand jury hearing. They are just trying to get out in front of the scandalous implications that are sure to follow.
