in my mind that Hunter Biden used his connection to Joe Biden to impress people, possibly even to getting them to hire Hunter or his company.

There is no doubt in my mind that Joe Biden did not, ever, even once, hint about quid pro quo or otherwise imply that his son could use him to influence legislation or administration policy.

Hunter was "name dropping". Did he make money doing that? quite possibly.

However, if you want to look to public corruption, let's start with Jared and Ivanka and the deals that were made when they were not only related to the president, but also paid members of the US Government... deals with China and Saudi Arabia. Deals that maybe leaked classified information to assist MBS to become the heir to the King of Saudi Arabia. Things worth $2 Billion.

I’m sure being the son of the VP at the time did not hurt, but he was working in the field for which he trained.

Now contrast Jared Kushner, who got a buyout to rescue his failing 666 Fifth Avenue building solely so he could influence the president of the United States and as a favor to said president. More recently, Jared received $2 billion to start an investment company for which he has no experience and has not worked in a similar company to be trained.

You get one guess to choose which is corrupt and which is not!

closed door interviews to the dems, so far. They are playing games and know that these interviews will completely destroy their narrative. It seems they are moving onto investigating his plea deal that fell apart instead. They make me sick.
