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?
Brokaw calls attention to a 2008 article from the Wall Street Journal about the Biden Corruption:
Brokaw told Biden:
“That’s a reference to your son being hired right out of law school by a big company here in Delaware that’s in the credit card business, MBNA. He got about $100,000 a year, as I recall. You received $214,000 in campaign contributions from the company and from its employees. At the same time, you were fighting for bankruptcy bill that MBNA really wanted to get passed through the Senate making it much tougher for everyone to file bankruptcy. Senator Obama was opposed to the bill. Among other things, you couldn’t in fact claim that you had a problem because of big medical bills. You voted against an amendment that would call for a warning on predatory lending. You also opposed efforts to strengthen the protection of people in bankruptcy. This is an issue that you’ve heard about before. Your son was working for the company at the same time. In retrospect, wasn’t it inappropriate for someone like you in the middle of all this to have your son collecting money from the big credit card company while you were on the floor protecting its interests?”
Biden responded as expected…with complete denial!
Biden: “Absolutely not.”
Biden has also denied he spoke with his son about dealings with Ukraine. The problem is that a photo came out of Biden golfing with Hunter and a key Burisma board member Devon Archer (pictured on the left below). Oops!
The video below is an excellent explanation of what went on in Ukraine with Joe and Hunter Biden.
The corruption is so obvious…where is our media?
Oh, it’s Biden so the media has ignored the blatant corruption.
See our previous report below on Hunter Biden’s partner Devon Archer (see more on Rosemont Partners and the John Kerry connection below) who became involved in natural gas company Burisma.
Some of the key players:

The Washington Examiner reported in detail on the connection with Secretary of State John Kerry:
At the time, Hunter Biden, now 49, and Christopher Heinz, the stepson of then-Secretary of State John Kerry, co-owned Rosemont Seneca Partners, a $2.4 billion private equity firm. Heinz’s college roommate, Devon Archer, was managing partner in the firm. In the spring of 2014, Biden and Archer joined the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian gas company that was at the center of a U.K. money laundering probe. Over the next year, Burisma reportedly paid Biden and Archer’s companies over $3 million.
Europe Reloaded reports that Burisma was founded by Mykola Zlochevsky some time ago, but he later sold his shares to the Privat Group, which “is a conglomerate controlled by the ferocious Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky (pictured below),” who “is one of the oligarchs charged with holding down the Eastern provinces of Ukraine.”
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON HUNTER BIDEN:
It’s hard to believe there hasn’t been a serious look at Hunter Biden’s involvement with natural gas company Burisma in Ukraine.
He got “a big chunk of change” for being on the board of a natural gas company when he had no substantial experience.
He also had no substantial experience with Ukraine.
How in the world does Vice President Joe Biden not know, as he claims, that his son is getting paid by this company?
New Yorker writer Adam Entous told CNN’s Poppy Harlow about Hunter Biden’s work with Burisma:
“He really had no substantial Ukraine experience, no Ukraine experience, and no substantial experience in the energy sector at that stage in his career. So, you know, the suspicion was among people who worked for Joe Biden and some State Department and White House officials was this was an effort on the part of Burisma to curry favor.”
“There are two separate issues here. The issue of whether it was wise of Hunter Biden to take this position at Burisma when his father was guiding policy in Ukraine and, you know, the wisdom of Biden staffers, once they knew that, not to ask Hunter to step down.”
The second issue is whether VP Biden used his position to get the job for Hunter Biden.
Someone should look into Devon Archer who was working for Burisma too.
Did Hunter tell his dad he was working for Burisma or not? There are conflicting reports on whether he told his dad.
