President-elect Joe Biden told Fox News reporter Peter Doocy that he still believes the Hunter Biden scandal is “Russian misinformation,” despite Hunter himself revealing he is under investigation for “tax affairs.”
He also called Doocy a “one-horse pony,” which, using my Biden-English dictionary translates to the oft-used phrase, ‘one-trick pony.’
“Mr. President-elect, do you still think that the stories from the fall about your son Hunter were Russian disinformation and a smear campaign like you said?” Doocy can be heard asking as Biden concludes a session with reporters.
“Yes, yes, yes,” Biden replied to the two questions. “God love you, man. You’re a one-horse pony.”
The Democrat went on to reassure that potential candidates for Attorney General would be independent on the matter.
“I promise you my Justice Department will be totally on its own, making its judgments about how they should proceed,” he offered.
Hunter Biden, the President-elect’s son, revealed himself that he is the subject of a federal investigation into his “tax affairs.”

Biden Claims His Son’s Investigation Is Russian Misinformation
The only misinformation regarding the Hunter scandal came out of Biden’s campaign office, better known as the mainstream media.
They spent month upon month upon month trying to avoid covering the story. And even when it became clear that there was something to it, they proceeded to swat the controversy away by labeling it ‘Russian misinformation.’

John Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, squashed the ‘Russian misinformation’ hoax rather easily.
“Let me be clear,” he said. “The intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that.”

In reality, there were many pieces of evidence that pointed to the truth, and it didn’t involve some conspiracy by Vladimir Putin to get Trump reelected.
Hunter’s “tax affairs” investigations began in 2018. There were Senate committees and subsequent reports that indicated inquiries into Biden’s son.
And there was a documentary out prior to the election which claimed Hunter’s numerous business deals in China “served” the communist country and their military.
It wasn’t Russian misinformation then, and it certainly isn’t now. If it were, Biden might want to find out which Russians working on his transition team put out a statement on an apparently non-existent story.

Biden insists he hasn’t spoken to any potential AG candidates about his son’s legal issues.
“The attorney general of the United States of America is not the president’s lawyer,” he said. “I will appoint someone I expect to enforce the law as the law is written, not guided by me.”
Meanwhile, outgoing attorney general Bill Barr announced recently that he would not be appointing a Special Counsel to take over the Hunter Biden probe.
“I think to the extent that there’s an investigation, I think that it’s being handled responsibly and professionally,” he announced Monday regarding Biden.
“To this point I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel and I have no plan to do so before I leave.”
