A former Democrat senator has blasted Republicans for investigating the mounting evidence and allegations of corruption involving President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
According to former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), GOP lawmakers are “jerks” for following the money.
Speaking during an appearance on MSNBC Tuesday, McCaskill trashed Republicans over their probes into Hunter while claiming that President Biden did nothing wrong.
McCaskill falsely claims that Republicans have “no evidence of any kind of wrongdoing.”
However, House Oversight Committee investigators have obtained bank records showing millions of dollars flowing to the Bidens from foreign nationals.
Several whistleblowers have also come forward alleging the family was involved in a bribery scheme while Joe Biden was Obama’s vice president.
Meanwhile, the Justice Department announced Tuesday that Biden would plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges, while a felony charge of lying on the form filled out when purchasing a firearm would be addressed via a pre-trial diversion program.
The move was part of a cushy plea deal that would allow Hunter Biden to walk free on charges that would land the rest of the taxpaying public in prison.
The New York Post reported on the contents of a laptop abandoned by Hunter Biden at a Delaware computer repair shop on October 14, 2020.
The laptop included emails exposing foreign business dealings by the Biden family.
“I don’t know what America they live in and I don’t know how they sleep at night,” McCaskill told MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace.
“You know, alcoholism and addiction are probably the most pervasive diseases in America.
“I don’t know of one family that hasn’t been touched by the pain of these diseases, and it’s particularly painful when you have someone you love unconditionally that is suffering from these diseases.”
“I think Joe Biden has shown a wonderful role model to the country about unconditional love,” McCaskill added.
“What do these jerks in the House want Joe Biden to do, throw him out?
“Refuse to speak to him, say he doesn’t love him publicly?
“Do they not understand this disease and how it works?”

Republican Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) said during a June 12 speech on the Senate floor that recordings of then-Vice President Joe Biden and Hunter Biden related to a bribery allegation exist.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and Grassley wrote to the FBI on May 3 to demand that the agency produce the document that reportedly details a bribery scheme involving then-Vice President Biden.
“Everybody needs to back off Joe Biden about this,” McCaskill said.
“He loves his son. Back off.
“It is okay for him to love his son, and there’s nothing wrong with it.”
“They have no evidence of any kind of wrongdoing by Joe Biden, and it infuriates me that they’re using this heartbreak against Joe Biden in this way.
“It’s just not right.”
