The New York Times reported on Wednesday that Republicans found “no evidence of wrongdoing” by the president, despite the House Oversight Committee’s revelation of a widespread system of influence peddling by Joe Biden.
According to Breitbart News, the committee’s chairman, Republican Representative James Comer of Kentucky, said that early evidence suggests that former Vice President Joe Biden and members of his family, including his son Hunter Biden, established a network of shell companies to launder money from foreign business partners and distribute it to various members of the Biden family. The business case and its benefits were not made obvious to the international partners.
The indictment of New York State Republican Representative George Santos was the main focus of the press coverage, rather than the press conference itself. On the other hand, the New York Times claimed that the results supported their position.
The Times, often considered the media’s gold standard, didn’t appear worried by the existence of a complete system to facilitate and conceal potential bribes beyond the opportunity to condemn Republicans.
Reports indicate that Hunter Biden will soon be indicted, but only for relatively minor violations, including lying on a weapons application, failing to register as a foreign agent, and failing to declare income.
