Billy got worse treatment than Hunter from Congress, and he was the president’s brother.
My dad bought some Billy Beer. Nothing special.
In late 1978 and early 1979, Billy Carter visited Libya three times with a contingent from Georgia. He eventually registered as a foreign agent of the Libyan government and received a $220,000 loan. (Edwin P. Wilson claimed he had seen a telegram showing that Libya paid Billy Carter $2 million.) This led to a Senate hearing on alleged influence peddling which the press named Billygate. A Senate sub-committee was called To Investigate Activities of Individuals Representing Interests of Foreign Governments (Billy Carter—Libya Investigation) . On August 4, 1980, President Jimmy Carter wrote: "I am deeply concerned that Billy has received funds from Libya and that he may be under obligation to Libya. These facts will govern my relationship with Billy as long as I am president. Billy has had no influence on U.S. policy or actions concerning Libya in the past, and he will have no influence in the future.
This stuff is pretty uncomfortable to read but it still doesn’t seem like anything more than Hunter being spoiled and high. At this point I feel like if there were anything further that actually implicated Joe in some kind of corruption, it would probably have come out.
It is shocking that this is getting next to zero coverage. How powerful is Joe Biden? I mean he’s getting some Hedy Lamar action there and no one cares? There’s some chick I’ve never heard of bitching about men bitching about her nubs Because she wore a see through dress this weekend. Big news!!!
Biden’s kid is smoking crack and getting blown and no one on the left looks? must have got their sidewalk stamina in San Francisco ignoring the homeless druggies.
I’ll give Tuckers clip a watch but I bet he didn’t even mention the biggest one, half a million dollar investment by Hunters investment firm in a bio firm called Metabiota with links to the Wuhan lab and Peter Daszaks EcoHealth Alliance specializing in studying infectious diseases out of Ukraine who were getting contracts from the US government while Joe Biden was VP and listed as a one of the main reasons by the Russians for invading Ukraine.
Not that it is illegal to invest in a bio research firm operating out of Ukraine but considering the entire planet just went though 2 1/2 years of lockdowns due to the Coronavirus and now are on the brink of WWIII in no small part because of Russias claims the US is operating biolabs in Ukraine.
You think someone might cover the story, maybe ask one or two questions to find out what was going on.
Maybe I missed the secret service part in the post I was replying to. It just seemed like more druggie soap opera to me. Fine as tabloid interest stories I guess, and my reaction to it is probably partly personal – I’ve known addicts exactly like that, complete with the family support-slash-enablement, and it sucks.
I just don’t think it particularly ties into the corruption stuff. If anything it might distract from it, making it look like a character assassination.
