Donald Trump’s victory in 2016 was due, in part, to his vow to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C.
He was so much of a challenge to the status quo that the swamp he tried to drain snatched his reelection in 2020.
Here’s another illustration of what Trump was up against, and what any future president would face if he or she seeks to return power to the people of the United States.
Materials recovered from that laptop Hunter Biden abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop in 2019 show that a former FBI director, Louis Freeh, effectively paid off the then-sitting vice president, Joe Biden, to ‘oversee’ “lucrative” business agreements using Hunter as the go-between, according to the UK’s Daily Mail.
The Daily Mail notes:
former FBI director Louis Freeh gave $100,000 to a private trust for Joe Biden’s grandchildren and met with the then-Vice President in 2016 ‘to explore with him some future work options’, emails reveal.
Freeh also spoke with then-Vice President Biden in 2016 ‘to explore with him some future work options’, according to the bombshell communications.
The emails suggest Freeh was trying to establish a future business relationship with Biden – and the White House has failed to disclose to DailyMail.com whether Joe Biden discussed private business with Freeh while in office.
Joe Biden, in his current feeble mental health, is unlikely to recall anything about these encounters, but that shouldn’t be a problem: His son would undoubtedly agree, as would Freeh. And, moreover, it doesn’t matter whether Biden recalls or not; if he was selling access, as it appears he was, that’s illegal in any case.
The former FBI director was employed by a trio of foreign businesspeople and officials at the time he was paying for Biden’s grandkids to live better than 99 percent of every other American citizen’s grandkids, according to documents reviewed by the Daily Mail. All three of them were ultimately convicted of a slew of offences (surprise, surprise), including plundering a multibillion-dollar Malaysian wealth fund — though Freeh was conveniently spared.
“The 71-year-old, who served as FBI director under Bill Clinton and George Bush, ran a consultancy firm with highly controversial clients such as a now-incarcerated Malaysian prime minister who stole billions of dollars from his country, a Romanian real estate tycoon convicted of bribery, and a French-Israeli diamond magnate later convicted of bribery and a $145 million property graft,” the Daily Mail reports.
“Freeh, a former judge, emailed Joe’s son Hunter Biden in 2016, revealing he had spoken with the Vice President and proposed that they work together on private ventures once Biden left office,” the outlet noted further.
This bombshell followers several previous revealing stories, all of which were based on content found on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, detailing the current first family’s massive corruption at home and abroad. But also, other details were provided by a former Biden family business partner, Tony Bobulinski, who dished them to Fox News host Tucker Carlson days ahead of the 2020 election.
“I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business,” Bobulinksi said. “I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.”
“Hunter Biden called his dad ‘the Big Guy’ or ‘my Chairman,’ and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals that we were discussing,” he added. “The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China.”
And it looks like Freeh was trying to get in on all of that.
“I would like to talk with you and Dad about working together next year,” he wrote to Hunter in July 2016, as the Obama administration was entering its final months in office. “So if it’s something which interests you both, let’s talk about it at some point. I’m very flexible and we could set it up as an equity-share or whatever works best. It would certainly be an honor to work with you both.”
According to materials seen by the Daily Mail that also reportedly came from Hunter’s laptop, Freeh made his $100k donation to the Biden grandchildren fund around the same time he was trying to hook up with them — to do ‘business.’
What a swamp DC is. And nothing short of a complete change of government is going to fix it.
