Will There Be Charges Against Hunter Biden & Joe Biden?
"For two years, people were shut down. Donald Trump tried to raise Hunter Biden's shady business deals with China. Oh, he's crazy. He's just Donald Trump. Biden said there's nothing to it. Well, settle in and witness the unfathomable. Here is NBC's Hallie Jackson, the morning on The Today Show. Hey there, Craig. Good morning to you. And this morning, we're learning more about the president's son and the paying off of a multi-million dollar tax bill he owed. Now the open question for both Hunter Biden legally and President Biden politically is whether or not there will be any charges in this federal criminal investigation. With federal prosecutors poring over Hunter Biden's finances, investigating whether he violated federal tax law this morning a representative for the president's son tells NBC News, his IRS Bill totaling about $2 million has been paid off. Two people familiar with the matter. Say the money was arranged by one of the younger Biden's new attorneys. Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris, best known for brokering a deal for the South Park TV show. Does paying that tax bill wash away any liability that Hunter Biden may have now? Paying the tax bill. If in fact that's what he did, doesn't undo the crime. It would be like returning money to a bank that you robbed. You still rob the bank. The president's son and his company brought in about $11 million between 2013 and 2018 working as an attorney, a board member to a Ukrainian gas company accused of bribing a prosecutor, and for a joint venture involving a Chinese businessman. Now accused of fraud, according to an NBC News analysis of a copy of Biden's hard drive, and iCloud account obtained by NBC from a representative for Rudy Giuliani, as well as documents released by a Senate committee. During the campaign, then candidate Biden denied his son profited off of China connection.

"Of America's largest largest airline said last week this week excuse me. They don't believe that the Biden administration's mass mandate requiring travelers to wear a mask while flying serves much benefit.

These are commons from American airline CEO and south Southwest airline CEO. They came yesterday during a Senate committee, hearing on the financial support the industry received during the pandemic.

"That the news media could do is we said what information is out there that we know is 100% accurate, So the Secret Service has released Hunter Biden's travel records. The U. S Senate Committee released Treasury Department, Um, reports on financial transactions going to Hunter Biden. So we went through the emails and said, Do they actually correspond when the Secret Service says that Hunter Biden was in Dubai on a given date? Do the emails actually correlate to that, and they absolutely do the same thing as if there's a wire transfer. You find an email from the Chinese businessman saying we wired you the money. Um, So it all lines up completely with the body of information we have, and includes other emails from other Hunter Biden business partners, So there is just no question that these emails are accurate. Clear and 100% genuine. And yet there's been zero interest from the news media other than as you mentioned the Daily Mail and the New York Post.

"And i think the strongest evidence of that is that The crash was identical for lenders to commercial real estate as to lenders to residential real estate and none of the policies that you're talking about ever applied to commercial real estate. So you okay. You can have that position. But i think that tossing aside when you have you know obama or as a matter of fact you can even take a look at the investigative reporting of the big short. Who would agree again. We wouldn't agree on everything there. But i don't think you can just quite say well. That's just all ho comes from straight trae. I thought you were talking about a re policies like the fair lending act and things like that. The big short doesn't talk about any of those kind of no. No no this is true So so a lot of right wingers are saying. Well it's because of laws that required a ebanks to Not redline neighborhoods and things like that that that was the kind of policy. I was talking about In pumping additional money into the housing market and being surprised by those inflationary effects and in the coming bubble crashes result of government losses eight increase. That's that's a smaller inflation. I was trying to use that as a smaller example of inflation. I was not trying to make any kind of those arguments. So i know the The failure of the bush administration to actually enforce bank regulation is what caused that crash in two thousand and the kind of complex derivatives that are written about In the big short for instance which raised which again for additional inflationary continue. Sorry yeah i'm gonna say it allowed for bubbles that would burst in the in the private sector the threatened to take down the whole financial system which then left You know because because the bush administration never regulated the banks enough to make sure that they weren't taking illegal levels of risk. That could bring them down and threaten the whole financial system Then that meant that you know when when the bubble actually did burst because these illegal levels of risk had actually been taken without regulator stepping in to stop it then that that the gave the government of a binary choice it you know so that towards the very end of bush's own presidency. He was either going to preside over the complete collapse of the Financial system or he was going to infuse tons of taxpayer money into it and certainly certainly infusing. Tons of taxpayer money to it was the lesser evil. There i mean you know it may have been inflationary but the alternative was probably worse than the great depression. No but so but the the example here is that for example with the banks the banks are able to pump additional funds into a market Support it leads to inflationary housing prices. Those kinds of weird derivative bets are ways that banks can mask the amount of money that's actually occurring in the housing market. You're with the analogy here. Though is that when you or money and this is what banks were doing into a closed system you temporarily flake prices in the end up having some kind of disastrous outcomes there. I'm suggesting you're going to see similar kinds of things happen when you have additional money pumped into the economy. Yeah i don't think it's comparable it would happen in two thousand eight because all the problems that happened in two thousand eight were Because the private sector choices none of them were because of government choices. It's at the government failed to regulate Private sector choices and those those private sector Financial institutions engage in reckless behavior with other people's money that nearly took down the financial system. It was really a failure government action whereas what you're talking about here is just Government fiscal policy. And i would say reckless fiscal..

And i think meeting his meeting with vladimir putin is going to be a a big issue but of course this. The note was his meaning in the united kingdom and his attempt with to kind of restore that special relationship with the uk with boris johnson which is probably a little bit uneasy in this in the sense that we've had recent with brexit Whereas there might have been a little bit more commonality With trump and i think most of the of the chirp is really been overshadowed in the united states by kind of that inside the baseball.

But what do you think about actual visit in. Will it be able to have any kind of meaningful traction moving forward given given the spin that we're seeing on in the united states in part as a as a presidential scholar little surprising oftentimes presidents get a little bit additional coverage in power when they go overseas and import because presidents have more visibility in direct command in that role a of international relations.

I'm just kind of is there much began to your or is it all going to be subsumed Domestically speaking by what's happening in the senate. I would sort of break that into pieces You know the the criticism that you're talking about is is primarily partisan criticism that i think in today's environment It doesn't really matter what biden does any day of the week.

This year, The Postal Service will likely reported loss of more than $9 billion after several cost cutting moves, the head of the U. S Postal Service testified today telling a Senate committee that all lot of what's been said about him deliberately slowing the delivery of your male is false. ABC is Andy Field on the camo news line from Washington, with more on Lewis to Joyce's public grilling, Andy, What can you tell us? Well, it's interesting. You know, we've heard a lot of gloom and doom reports that the male is going to be almost stuff that things won't get delivered. The message we got from the postmaster general was Decidedly different and remember, he said, All this under oath, hey was asked point blank. Have you had discussions with the president? And are are you working hoots of anyone to deliberately mess up the election? He said. Absolutely not. He And at no point ever talk to the president about the post office. Except of the time that the president congratulated him on getting the job, hey, was a little more squishy on whether he had talked to other administration officials about this Didn't it was hard to nail down on that, but He says. The bottom line is they have plenty of resources. They have plenty of people. They're not gonna pull any more sorting machines. They're not going to cut more over time that I couldn't pull any mailboxes. Although he insisted that mother those things would have heard delivery. They were just cost cutting measures. But he said that they're not going to do any of that till the election. I promise you we're not making any changes until after the election and that if people mail their ballots in a timely manner, at least a week. Before the election or more that they will get all those ballots delivered as promised. Okay, they're not goingto remove any more. They're not going to cut anymore, but can they put them back? Well, here's the issue on that, and this has been going on for a while. I think it's a little hard to understand it's a little hard to see from the outside. But he claims and again all under oath that they have been doing this for quite some time. And postal unions do acknowledge that, but they have been mothballing a lot of these older sorting machines. Upgrading them, But in many cases they don't need them anymore for the simple reason that we're not bailing as much as we used to mail it. That there's no reason to have those things sitting, collecting dust or hiring people to sit and monitor them. If you're not going to use them what they do have a big volume, increasing his packages parcels. Things from Amazon. Things from ups because especially during the pandemic gives people shopping at home getting shipped. Those don't go through sorting received. Those have to be hand sorted. So that's one of the reasons they get something sorted machines and there's no reason, he said. To put them back in Are lawmakers satisfied with his answers and are Are voters content with his answers? Yeah, that's a tough question. One party or the Republicans seemed all sing from the same and know what everything was. Time there were some Democrats who said Look, your story doesn't jive with what we've seen post offices. What we've heard from postal workers and postal unions where there are there's mail piling up because they weren't a lot of overtime that he is since then. He is rescinded that order. Uh, there's no doubt that the Postal Service has a giant financial problem. He's I think, he said there were upwards of $10 billion of death. The house the democratically with house had the passed a bill that would, I think, give them upwards of 25 billion The president keeps blaming this on Democrats, but in fact it is the Republican led Senate that has refused to even consider that bill.

The bipartisan Senate investigation, then Muller's investigation every one that worked in the Trump White House, not one person was told not to cooperate just the opposite. They were all given permission and encouraged to testify frankly, it was unprecedented that they even allowed the White House counsel at the time, Don Mcgann to testify before Muller for thirty hours.
