Former vice president and 2020 hopeful Joe Biden is facing a lot of questions about his son Hunter’s shady business deals in Ukraine and China, both of which seem to include papa Joe selling the influence of his office as vice president, but this isn’t the first time the Bidens’ conflict of interest in business dealings have caused problems in a presidential campaign.
They’re like a crime family second only to the Clintons.
Over a decade ago legendary broadcast journalist Tom Brokaw asked Joe Biden about another special arrangement with a Delaware bank called MBNA that dealt in credit cards. The bank hired Hunter, who had no banking experience at the time, at an annual salary of six figures, and then they donated to then Senator Joe Biden about $214,000 in campaign contributions.
Joe Biden has been selling the influence of the offices he’s held for years.
This is SO Tom Brokaw to ask Biden this to his face on TV, on Meet the Press no less.
Tom Brokaw calling out Joe-Hunter Biden’s corruption in 2008:
“Wasn’t it inappropriate for someone like you in the middle of all this to have your son collecting money from this big credit card company while you were on the floor protecting its interests?” pic.twitter.com/CORqFD6w1a
