As Jim (Biden) talked, Bobulinski marveled at the political risk to Joe’s career if his family’s flagrant influence peddling during his vice presidency came to light.

“How are you guys getting away with this?” he finally asked. “Aren’t you concerned that you’re going to put your brother’s [2020] presidential campaign at risk? You know, the Chinese, the stuff that you guys have been doing already in 2015 and 2016, around the world?”

Jim chuckled and looked knowingly at Bobulinski.


“Plausible deniability,” he said, using a term coined by the CIA during the Kennedy administration to describe the practice of keeping the president uninformed about illegal or unsavory activity so he can plausibly deny knowing anything if it becomes public knowledge.


And here's the timeline. Note: one of Hunter's Chinese business associates was indicted for violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act by trying to bribe government officials; while another, Ye Jianming, was 'disappeared' by the CCP amid suspicions of “economic crimes.” And yet there's Hunter walking around as free as a bird. That will change starting in January 2023.

even better from that laptop. Seems there were more than a few that knew Joe had dementia before his presidential run.

A few months before Joe Biden launched his presidential campaign, Hunter Biden was exchanging text messages with Keith Ablow, his therapist and friend, in early January 2019. The book highlighted that Ablow and Hunter were discussing Democratic presidential candidates when Ablow said, "Your dad is the answer" and then later quoted himself, mockingly saying, "Any man who can triumph over dementia is a giant. Think what he could do for our nation's needed recovery."

"You're such an a--hole but that made me laugh out loud," Hunter Biden replied.

Ablow went on to quote himself saying, "Perhaps he can help us remember all we intended to be as a people since he can now remember his address," prompting Hunter to say his dad "doesn't need to [know] where he lives" because "that's the only thing the secret service get right at least 75% of the time."

It's a good thing Amanda Devine, Rudi Giuliani et al had a copy made of Hunter's laptop, obtained directly from the Mac Repair shop, or this information would be buried and never see the light of day. Just like the Secret Service trying to muscle Hunter's gun application away from the gun shop owner. These people are corrupt as they come!

“Lie and try.” That’s what the feds call cases in which people who are disqualified from owning guns under federal law try to get a gun by concealing the disqualification. It is maddening but true that many of these people are not charged.

Consequently, you’re hearing Hunter Biden apologists argue that the president’s problem son should not be “singled out” for prosecution over apparently concealing his history of illegal drug use when he bought a handgun in 2018.

It is a very misleading argument. Hunter, after all, did not “lie and try.” He got the gun. If he withheld a drug abuse problem that he was required to disclose, that isn’t lying and trying; it’s lying and succeeding.

Much else is curious about this latest Biden misadventure. Why, for example, did the Secret Service’s office in Wilmington, Del., reportedly get involved? Yes, that would be the same agency that was then providing protection for former Vice President Joe Biden as he was planning his 2020 presidential bid.

The Secret Service has nothing to do with firearms background checks (the bailiwick of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives), or with investigating misplaced guns (that’s the local cops’ job). Why would Secret Service agents try to get the gun dealer to surrender the paperwork from Hunter’s purchase?

Congress ought to be investigating — clearly, if a Republican were involved, Democrats would be in whirling dervish mode and the media would be swarming.

But that aside, there is a reason many “lie and try” cases do not get prosecuted: The applicant does not get the gun. Often, what is concealed is a prior conviction. The authorities discover it in reviewing the background check, and the purchase never goes through.

Those cases ought to be prosecuted more often, but it’s not true that charges are never filed. Even if it were true, this is not that situation. Biden got the gun and, predictably, lost it. That’s a case that ought to be charged 10 times out of 10.
