A series of bombshell reports based on information derived from an abandoned laptop belonging to Hunter Biden appear to how that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had some level of knowledge and involvement in his son’s shady business dealings with foreign nationals, despite having repeatedly insisted that he knew nothing.
Those stories, which have been dismissed by the mainstream media and suppressed by social media giants, have nonetheless gained traction, so much so that a majority of voters now believe that Biden was involved in his son’s questionable international business transactions, the New York Post reported.
Majority believe Biden knew what Hunter was up to
The results come from a recent survey by Rasmussen Reports, which queried 1,000 likely voters between Oct. 22-25 and asked, “How likely is it that Joe Biden was consulted about and perhaps profited from his son Hunter’s overseas business deals including at least one involving a company in mainland China?”
With a margin of error around 3%, the pollsters found that 54% of respondents believed that it was likely that Biden had been involved in his son’s business dealings, including 44% who considered it “very likely” that such consultation and profiteering did indeed occur.
In comparison, 38% of respondents believed it was unlikely that the former vice president had been involved in his son’s business dealings, including 21% who said it was “not at all likely” that any involvement occurred.
The Ukraine connection
The New York Post and others have reported on emails and text messages derived from Hunter’s laptop, some of which have been confirmed and verified via other named recipients of the missives, which purport to show that the Biden son was using his family name and access to his father to drum up millions of dollars in business deals with a variety of foreign nationals and companies.
One message in particular appears to show a high-level executive at Burisma, the Ukrainian energy firm where Hunter inexplicably held a lucrative board position, thanking Hunter for introducing him to his father around the time that the then-vice president was in charge of the government’s Ukraine policy and had pressured the nation into firing a prosecutor who was investigating Burisma.
That is particularly troubling for Biden because it undercuts his repeated assertion that he had no knowledge or involvement in his son’s business dealings.
Majority believe there is a conflict of interest
According to a joint poll from Just the News and Scott Rasmussen — separate from the unconnected Rasmussen Reports — 53% believed it was a conflict of interest for Biden to be in charge of Ukraine anti-corruption policies while his son Hunter was employed by a Ukrainian firm under investigation for corruption.
In contrast, 26% of those surveyed had no problem with that arrangement and 21% were unsure whether it constituted a conflict of interest or not. The poll was conducted between Oct. 15-17 and surveyed 1,265 likely voters and had a margin of error of around 2.8%.
Biden has claimed for well over a year that he had no knowledge of or involvement in his son’s business dealings, but the emails and text messages would suggest otherwise. Despite the best efforts on the left to dismiss or suppress that information, the story has gone viral.
A majority of the American people now believe that that the Democratic nominee has been lying and are convinced that he was aware of and involved in his son’s dealings. Time will tell what role this fact will have in the upcoming election.
