Hunter Biden’s recent scandal involving drug use, prostitution and business ties with foreign countries is making headlines again, and this time, President Joe Biden is in the hot seat for his response.
While speaking on MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour,” President Biden defended his son’s behavior by stating he has “done nothing wrong.” This is a clear attempt to influence the ongoing investigation into Hunter’s actions. The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board has condemned the president’s statement, calling it a “highly inappropriate message.”
President Biden on immigration: "Those 1,500 [troops along the southern border], they're not there to enforce the law. They're there to free up the border agents that need to be on the border…to move things along." https://t.co/J2gI24MaST pic.twitter.com/6O1udRn3Hp

President Biden’s comments give off a defensive tone that suggests he is more worried about his son’s reputation than the actual criminal activities he may have engaged in. As the head of the executive branch, President Biden’s role also includes overseeing the Justice Department, and his comments could be viewed as a way to sway the decision-making process of the DOJ in favor of Hunter.
Moreover, there have been allegations that Hunter’s behavior could cause legal problems for the president himself. Reports indicate that the FBI and the DOJ possess an unclassified FD-1023 form that describes a possible criminal scheme involving Joe Biden and a foreign national. It remains unclear what steps were taken to investigate the matter.
In light of these allegations, Congress will be conducting an independent review, free from the influence of the DOJ and the FBI. This investigation will examine the allegations and determine whether or not there has been any criminal activity. However, President Biden’s defense of his son’s potentially criminal behavior only adds to the sense that the President is more interested in protecting himself and his family than in upholding the law.
It is important to hold our elected officials and their families accountable for their actions, and it is crucial that the DOJ and the FBI conduct a thorough investigation into these allegations. President Biden’s attempt to protect his son from the consequences of his actions could have serious repercussions for both him and the nation as a whole.
