During a stunning propaganda episode, a gaslighting Politico reporter claimed on national television that the evidence linking Democrat President Joe Biden to his son Hunter’s influence-peddling deals “doesn’t exist.”
Politico’s “investigative reporter” Heidi Przybyla made the claims during an appearance on ABC News’s “This Week”
Przybyla joined a panel discussing the 2024 presidential election and President Donald Trump’s legal battles.
During the conversation, she weighed in with her thoughts on Congress’ plans after its summer recess concludes.
“Another potential advantage which is, guess what the news might be when we come back or Congress comes back?” she said.
“They’re going to try to impeach Joe Biden based on charges that don’t exist and evidence that doesn’t exist, and they think that would just go down.”
So much for @Politico national investigative reporter @HeidiReports doing any investigating: Republicans are “going to try to impeach Joe Biden based on charges that don’t exist and evidence that doesn’t exist.” #ThisWeek pic.twitter.com/TulzpDp6q2

Despite Przybyla’s claims, however, evidence has been stacking up against Biden.
So much so that several Democrats are starting to demand answers from the president.
In fact, the evidence not only links the president to the deals but it suggests that the family business is run by Joe Biden and not his son Hunter.
Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and his House Oversight Committee have obtained bank documents showing the Bidens received millions of dollars from foreign nationals.
The payments were received from Ukrainian, Russian, Chinese, Romanian, and Kazakh business associates.

Calls have been mounting from Republicans and concerned citizens for Biden to face impeachment proceedings over the scandal.
Last week, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said that an impeachment inquiry is the “natural step forward.”
McCarthy had also previously threatened impeachment if the Department of Justice (DOJ) uses Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss’s special counsel status to obstruct congressional investigators from probing the Bidens.
Biden’s White House has reportedly set up a war room of two dozen staffers in preparation for an impeachment inquiry.
Archer specifically recalled a spring 2014 dinner with Russian oligarch Elena Baturina and Kazakh oligarch Kenes Rakishev.
Baturina was married to a former mayor of Moscow.
He also testified about a spring 2015 dinner with Vadim Pozharskyi, an executive with the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma.
Burisma paid Hunter Biden more than $80,000 per month to sit on its board, despite having no experience in the energy industry.
In addition, Archer told House Oversight that Burisma was protected from legal scrutiny by the Biden family “brand.”
Archer testified that the “brand” was Joe Biden and his access to Obama’s White House and Washington D.C.
According to Archer, the entire Biden family business model was selling this “brand” to the highest foreign bidder.
He also said Joe Biden met with one of his son’s Chinese business associates in Beijing.
Joe Biden later wrote a letter of recommendation for the business associate’s daughter’s college applications, Archer testified.
After his testimony, Archer said in an interview with Tucker Carlson that it was “categorically false” to claim Joe Biden was not aware of his son’s business dealings.
The House Ways and Means, Oversight, and Judiciary Committees are investigating allegations made by IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler surrounding the DOJ investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes and gun possession.
Shapley and Ziegler have testified to Congress about how Hunter Biden received special treatment from DOJ prosecutors who slow-walked and obstructed the investigation into the president’s son.
When he testified to the House Ways and Means Committee in May, Shapley released a transcript of former Hunter Biden business associate Rob Walker’s interview with the FBI.
During the interview, Walker said Joe Biden met with his son’s Chinese business partners soon after his vice presidency concluded.
“10 held by H for the big guy?” Gilliar said of a potential equity agreement.
Hunter Biden’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski publicly declared in October 2020 that “the big guy” was a reference to President Biden.
Bobulinski also alleged that Biden was aware of, and involved in, the planning of several foreign deals.
The emails were first reported by the New York Post.
Bobulinski confirmed to the outlet that the “big guy” was a nickname often used to refer to Joe Biden.
In June, the DOJ and Hunter Biden’s team agreed on a plea deal and a diversion agreement for his two tax misdemeanors and a felony gun charge.
Hunter Biden’s plea deal collapsed in July when Delaware U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika scrutinized an immunity provision tucked into Biden’s diversion agreement.
The scrutiny resulted in a disagreement between Biden’s defense counsel and DOJ special attorney Leo Wise over the scope of Biden’s potential immunity.
The younger Biden pleaded not guilty to the tax charges and the diversion agreement was not implemented.
According to the New York Post, emails and texts from Hunter Biden’s laptop archive indicate he frequently paid family expenses, including bills for Joe Biden while he was vice president.
“It’s really hard,” Hunter Biden texted his daughter Naomi in 2019, text messages from his laptop archive show.
“But don’t worry, unlike Pop [Joe Biden], I won’t make you give me half your salary.”
In July, DOJ whistleblowers released an FBI FD-1023 form in to Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA).
The document contains intelligence from a confidential source alleging that Joe and Hunter Biden received bribes from Burisma executive Mykola Zlochevsky.
Oversight Chair Comer said in June the FBI is investigating the contents of the FD-1023 form.
During a recent confrontation with Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, President Biden said Devon Archer’s testimony was “not true.”
Meanwhile, the White House insists that Joe Biden was “not in business” with his son.
