BREAKING: Politico Blows The Whistle On Joe Biden


BREAKING: Politico Blows The Whistle On Joe Biden

That’s not my headline, that’s the headline posted by Kyle Becker over on TrendingPolitics:

Kyle Becker is referencing this article over on Politico:

Basically, Kyle Becker is making the point that longtime Biden defender, Politico, has just made a major shift now suddenly going after Joe Biden and his corrupt business dealings.

Why?

I believe it’s because they are laying the ground work to swap OUT Joe and swap IN….Michelle?

More on that in just a moment.

But first let’s take a look at a portion of the Politico article:

For years, Joe Biden shared a bookkeeper with his son, Hunter. He also shared a personal lawyer with his brother, Jim. And when Jim Biden wanted to know more about one of Hunter Biden’s associates, he hired the former head of Joe Biden’s Secret Service detail to investigate.

Since 2019, Joe Biden has repeatedly distanced himself from his family’s business dealings, saying that he has never so much as discussed them with his relatives or with anyone else. But House impeachment inquiry interviews, public records and emails reviewed by POLITICO show that members of his inner circle were regularly enmeshed in those dealings: Many of the president’s closest staffers and advisers have doubled as his relatives’ business associates, both during and after their stints working for the man at the center of the Biden family orbit.

Those overlaps reflect an all-in-the family approach to business and politicking that dates back a half-century to the president’s first Senate bid, run primarily by his parents and siblings. Since then, his political patrons have at times forged business ties with his relatives, who in turn have converted some of their business partners into campaign supporters. And over a lifetime in public life, some of the president’s aides have taken on roles as surrogate members of the tight-knit Biden clan.

The Bidens’ approach complicates their efforts to distance the president from his family’s ventures.

As Jim and Hunter Biden’s foreign dealings have caused controversy and several of their business partners have been convicted of federal fraud and corruption crimes in recent years, any potential links between their business dealings and the president have come in for renewed scrutiny.

To allay concerns about any intermingling of their affairs, the Bidens have said that they observe strict interpersonal firewalls to avoid discussing business among themselves.

But with so many former and current aides in the mix — and with the surfacing of private communications in which Jim and Hunter Biden suggest they represent their powerful relative in business matters — onlookers are forced to take family members at their word that those firewalls always held.

In one instance, Jim Biden testified that he hired the former head of his brother’s Secret Service detail, Dale Pupillo, to investigate a Chinese executive that Hunter Biden was doing business with in 2017.

Jim Biden said during his February impeachment inquiry interview that he commissioned Pupillo in advance of accompanying Hunter Biden to Hong Kong so that his nephew could meet with the executive, Patrick Ho.

Despite hiring a private investigator and traveling halfway around the world for the meeting, Jim Biden said he never asked Hunter Biden what Ho — then on the cusp of being arrested, and later convicted, on federal corruption charges — and his nephew were meeting about. He said the decision not to inquire about the meeting came down to a desire to quarantine his affairs from those of his nephew’s.

“That may be hard for you to believe,” he told an incredulous Republican staffer. “But that’s the way we operate in my family.”

It is unclear whether the president’s current or former staffers are presently involved in his relatives’ business affairs. Neither the White House, representatives for Jim and Hunter Biden, nor the president’s current or former aides responded to requests for comment.

In a three-decade career in the Secret Service, Pupillo climbed the ranks and eventually oversaw vice presidential protection for both Dick Cheney and Joe Biden.

A series of scandals at the agency led to a high-profile shakeup that saw Pupillo — by then assistant director for protective operations — demoted in 2015 along with other top Secret Service leaders.

After retiring from government, Pupillo remained friendly with Jim Biden, the president’s brother testified at his impeachment inquiry interview.

Then, in 2017, Hunter Biden asked his uncle to accompany him to Hong Kong for a meeting with Ho, an executive working on behalf of the Chinese energy firm CEFC, according to the interview transcript.

At the time, Jim and Hunter Biden had been working with CEFC to help the company source potential energy projects.

In the course of those dealings, hundreds of thousands of dollars flowed from accounts associated with CEFC and its then-chairman, Ye Jianming, to accounts associated with Jim and Hunter Biden, according to findings, based on subpoenaed bank records, released in recent years by congressional Republicans.

Hunter Biden has testified that his dealings with CEFC were “completely legitimate and completely, 100 percent in line with my experience and my abilities,” and Jim Biden has described the episode as “a straightforward business venture.”

In advance of the trip, Jim Biden testified, he hired Pupillo to investigate Ho. “I wanted to know who I was meeting with and if there were any complications at all,” he said.

So….what is really going on here?

I believe it’s EXACTLY what we’ve told you was coming for several months now….

Joe Biden will suddenly be replaced on the ballot by Michelle Obama.

RUMORS: Biden To Withdraw, Nominate Michelle Obama — Here’s When

Are the Democrats actually betting on Biden beating Trump this November?

Or, do they already have a scheme in place to replace him with someone they think has a better chance?

For a long time now, there have been rumors that Michelle Obama may replace Biden in the upcoming election. As we’ve reported in the past:

Is Michelle Obama Angling to Replace Biden For 2024?

Report: Michelle Obama’s Secret Plot to Replace Joe Biden EXPOSED

But now, a German news outlet has a date in mind for when this could happen: in August at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago.

According to a report from Der Spiegel, there are rumors among Democrats that Joe Biden is planning on making a"grand gesture" and stepping down at the convention to instead endorse Michelle Obama.

The outlet notes that the Democrat party has already been including Michelle Obama in some polls of potential election candidates.

Take a look at the breaking new report:

The New Voice of Ukraine on Yahoo has more details on the rumors:

This summer, President Joe Biden may consider stepping out of the presidential race in favor of endorsing Michelle Obama, former First Lady and wife of ex-President Barack Obama, according to a report by Der Spiegel on May 5.

The U.S. Democratic Party is considering the possibility that Biden may announce his decision in August 2024 at a party convention in Chicago.

Der Spiegel states that Michelle Obama has been added to the roster of potential candidates, with public opinion polls currently being conducted to gauge her viability.

"The idea of a female president inspires many Americans," Der Spiegel notes.

It's important to note that this is all just speculation, from a German source.

So, take from that what you will.

But, it is notable that the Obamas are already on the list to appear at the DNC this August.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Former President Barack Obama will serve as an Illinois delegate at the Democratic National Convention this summer, possibly upstaging his former running mate, President Joe Biden.

Illinois Democrats announced their full list of delegates Monday evening. Obama marks just one of 51 party leaders and elected officials serving as either automatic or at-large delegates, on top of the 96 district delegates. The Illinois delegation totals 147.

Obama has weighed in on some political issues since leaving office in 2017, but like most former presidents, he largely has avoided attempting to steer the party toward any successors.

He notably did not endorse Biden during the 2020 Democratic primary until it was clear his former vice president would be the nominee in that election. Meanwhile, popular former first lady Michelle Obama has long been rumored in GOP circles as replacing Biden as the 2024 nominee, which Democratic strategists dismiss as a "ginned-up" conspiracy.

Still, Democratic insiders have indicated to the Washington Examiner that they expect Obama to hit the 2024 campaign trail hard for Biden starting this summer, and the campaign is welcoming his efforts to boost Biden's reelection push. Campaign officials added that Obama has indicated a willingness to do "whatever the campaign asks" once he ramps up his on-the-ground appearances.

Still, Michelle Obama's "office" has publicly stated she does not "intend" to run for president:

Michelle Obama’s “Office” Finally Addresses Her Run In 2024

But, I'm not so sure...

What do you think?

Do you believe these rumors?

Will we really see Biden replaced by Big Mike just two months before the election?
