“I was concerned — 2014, this is almost 10 years ago — I found it remarkable that the son of the then vice president of the United States was getting paid $50,000 a year by the largest Ukrainian energy company,” Karl said. That’s actually $50,000 a month, but never mind: “He kept getting that money all the way until 2019, and he had no apparent skills or experience on the questions of energy. And at that point, while Biden was vice president, he wasn’t just vice president, he was the point-person for the Obama administration on Ukraine.” And now, congressional Republicans have evidence of a convoluted network of foreign entities pumping cash to various members of the Biden family. There are even allegations “the Big Guy” is involved. But as far as Karl is concerned, there’s “no evidence” that this was anything more than a wastrel of a son trading off his last name. The media’s gullibility is what allowed the influence-peddling Hunter and James Biden to fly mostly under the radar during both the Obama administration and the 2020 presidential race. Now that the president’s son has gotten a sweetheart deal, we’re supposed to pretend this was handled fairly and impartially. There’s “no evidence” of wider corruption, despite the president’s lies about how much he knew regarding Hunter’s business dealings with foreign nationals and how extensive those dealings were. Nothing to see here. Move right along. This is hackery at its finest from Jonathan Karl — and reporting like this is what’s going to make it easy for Hunter and his father to avoid any serious consequences for any transgressions they may or may not have been involved in. When the fourth estate acts as a fifth column for the Democrats, the system has become so rotten that it’s impossible to believe there are any checks on this White House or those associated with it.

Shortly before claiming “there’s no evidence” of Hunter or the Biden family trading off their name, Karl bragged about asking questions about Hunter’s employment by Burisma. “2014, I found it remarkable [Hunter] was getting paid $50,000 a year … Why did they hire him?” pic.twitter.com/qnFSnIoLQw— Nicholas Fondacaro (@NickFondacaro) June 20, 2023
