Scratch at pretty much anything Hunter Biden has touched, and it seems you’ll likely find a scandal.
No one knows this better than the New York Post’s Miranda Devine, who broke the now notorious “laptop from hell” story for her outlet years ago, and now she’s revealed that the first son’s former employer, law firm Boies Schiller Flexner, took a whopping $10.14 million loan — the largest single loan among 300 of the top law firms investigated by Open the Books, a nonprofit dedicated to transparency — from the Paycheck Protection Program.
And while one hand of the law firm was securing that, the other was donating nearly $1 million to Democratic candidates, according to an independent investigation.
“Boies partners and employees donated nearly $1 million in federal campaign cash during the 2020 and 2022 election cycles, including $213,966 to Biden’s presidential campaign,” Devine writes.
What’s more, the multi-million-dollar loan was forgiven in 2021.
Meanwhile, Devine reports, “the firm — headed by longtime Joe Biden donor David Boies — billed $480 million to clients in 2020 and 2021, and equity partners each earned $4.5 million.”
Biden joined the Boies firm in 2010 and received an annual salary of $216,000. Devine characterizes the “of counsel” position as “a ‘no-show’ job that did not require him to keep regular office hours or attend meetings.”
There’s no word on whether Hunter kicked half of his Boies salary back to his “Big Guy” dad.
As BizPac Review reported in 2020, before the validity of the famed laptop had been confirmed, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani sounded the salary alarms, presenting a then-unverified text message from Hunter to his daughter to the Daily Caller that read, “All during the time that I’ve been disrespected, I’ve been the one who has supported this family for 30 years, and unlike pop I’m not going to require you to give half of your salary to me.”
America’s Mayor was promptly smeared as a disinformation agent for reporting what we now know is the truth.

On Twitter, and in the wake of the FTX debacle involving questionable donations to Democratic candidates, Devine’s latest story reeks to many of money laundering.

That’s how all this works. No surprises. Very blatant.

It’s a revelation that is turning already “tired” Americans even more cynical.
Why am I a Republican when it seems I could get rich being a Democrat?

The Biden’s consider the US tax dollar to be their personal piggy bank.

And at least one Twitter user took time to appreciate the irony of the situation.
They are giving taxpayers money to organizations to then have them donate from that same money!
The opposition needs to put an end to that.
It’s ironic, Taxpayers are paying to ruin themselves.
What a Scam!
