The left has had quite a transition from Joe had not involvement to “there no direct evidence” of Joe Biden’s corruption in office. So, the House Oversight Committee published a list of 22 examples of Biden’s corruption.
These are facts, not suppositions.
The sold-out members of the left-wing media have really done some spinning over the news that Hunter Biden illegally sold Joe Biden’s influence — WITH Joe’s participation in the scheme — to foreign operatives will to pay millions to get a vice president and later a president in their pocket.
The media started insisting that Joe Knew nothing whatever and never talked to Hunter about the scion’s shady business deals.
Now they have morphed to the weasely worded “there is no direct evidence” that Joe sold his office to our enemies. Of course, that isn’t how it works, and they know it. There won’t be any check that says “From Ukraine’s dirty business man to Joe Biden” on them.
But if yo want to see how it worked, check out this video taht shows exactly how Joe and Hunter played the game:
