The walls are closing on President Joe Biden after Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) became the first Democrat official to admit that Hunter Biden “diverted” money to the bank accounts of his other family members.
Raskin came clean on Chris Cuomo’s new show where he said the investigation into Hunter should proceed.
Raskin said: “As far as I know, Hunter Biden made a bunch of business deals, which is lawful, which a lot of family members have done, Republican, Democrat, other political families, they’ve done the same thing.
“And he had it — the money diverted into different funds.
“I don’t know there’s an allegation of any crime there, but what is the crime that’s being asserted?”
Cuomo asked, “Well, you don’t find it curious that multiple members of the Biden family — allegedly, again, because I haven’t been able to get to the bottom of any of it — received payments from corporations, foreign corporations, when we don’t know whether or not they’re in any kind of consulting business, isn’t that of concern?”
Raskin said: “The only ones I’m aware of being alleged are ones where Hunter Biden got payments.
“He was able to insinuate himself into a situation where he was getting paid and then he had the payments directed to different accounts and in the names of different people, including children or babies.
“I don’t think those babies were involved in political corruption.
“I think Hunter Biden was obviously trying to divert the different kinds of money that he had coming in.
“That’s my best understanding of that situation.
“Again, none of it touches President Biden.
“He’s in his late 70s — or early 80s now — as they never stop reminding us.
“He’s never been accused, meaningfully, of any corruption in his life.
“I don’t think it has started now.”
