Joe Biden Could Be Indicted

Evidence continues to mount for a basic, incontrovertible finding: Whether criminal or not, Joe Biden was the kingpin in an elaborate, 20-company scheme, brought to life immediately after he became vice president. This is what Treasury documents show. The core question: Could Joe Biden be indicted, even as a sitting president?

Given Democrat control of the Senate, Biden will not be impeached, we know that. As for an indictment, that depends on two other questions. First, are the activities Joe Biden was involved in objectively criminal – that is, would others’ be indicted for them? Second, does the Constitution’s “impeachment clause” bar – or substitute for – the idea of an indictment?

On the first, documents coming to light are damning. As reported, Joe Biden took his son to China and Ukraine, facilitating contacts with foreign governments. After that, his son secured contracts with those tied to corrupt governments, collecting millions either for introductions to or actions taken by his father.

These foreign payments appear over an extended period in accounts managed by the Biden family, and in sums that appear intended to avoid bank filings of “suspicious transaction reports,” CTRs or CMIRs.

A laptop computer owned by the son fell into FBI custody in 2019, a year before the 2020 election. The laptop contained information we now know of likely crimes committed exclusively by the son and of involvement by the father in a money-for-access scheme, benefiting the Biden family.

Unfortunately, for reasons better understood after the Durham Report – condemning the FBI and Justice Department for political involvement favoring Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016, in 2020 these institutions failed to reveal what they knew prior to the election, and were not pressed by media.

We are only now learning what some suspected mid-2020, that Joe Biden appears to have been part of a scheme engineered to benefit himself and his family financially by selling access to his VP’s office. Coming to any other conclusion is counter-intuitive, given all the documents being produced.

Why this happened, if one assumes an absence of integrity by the VP, is not hard to figure out. A lot of money stood to be made by shaking down foreign governments, especially China, Ukraine, and Romania – if they were willing to pay a VP’s son for access to and actions by his father, which now seems likely.

If this is mind blowing to many Americans, pause and think about the likelihood that this happened. Public corruption, the lure of abusing office for self-enrichment is as old as time, and is common around the world, even if we hope and assume better at home.

When the press refuses to investigate, when Justice and FBI are politically captured, when a former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, dodges accountability for seeming sale of her office, and when Biden thought he could take the money and run, not imagining later scrutiny, is it really unlikely? No, it is not.

Reality is that Joe Biden, whether classified documents and national security were involved or not, likely violated federal anti-bribery statues, a fact no one wants to admit. Would the same acts committed by others, a senator, governor, mayor, dogcatcher, or citizen be a crime? Almost certainly, yes.

Question two. If the evidence continues to mount, if a Joe Biden was kingpin in a kickback scheme, his son the intermediary, does an indictment fall to the “impeachment clause,” for a sitting president? Some will say yes, noting crimes were discussed during Nixon, Clinton, and Trump’s tenure, none indicted.

Their argument is the Constitution offers remedies if a president is a criminal, impeachment and non- reelection. The rationale is also separation of powers, to prevent presidents from facing scurrilous indictments, or having to defend an indictment while presumably leading.

Reality is no court has reached that conclusion; it is based on two DOJ memos, one from 1973, the other 2000. Reality is this: If a president is caught committing a felony, such as violation of federal anti-bribery statues by sale of access to his office or actions in office, let alone to a foreign country using his son as a cutout, multiple bank accounts for subterfuge, he could be indicted.

No uncontested legal authority exists to countermand a thoughtful, honest prosecutor – or an attorney general – who steps up, makes the case for removal by impeachment, resignation, or indictment.  

While neither impeachment nor resignation saves a president from later indictment, circumstances could compel indictment. If a majority of Americans conclude they do not want a criminal in office – is that is where mounting evidence leads – they might press DOJ for an indictment.

Of course, politics these days seems to be in the driver’s seat, overriding truth, justice, self-respect, integrity, and the “American way” – which holds “no one is above the law.” But it is possible. If people see what is emerging, understand it, get disgusted, who knows? We might get some accountability.

What no one wants to say is just this: The Constitution is silent. It does not foreclose throwing out a crooked president with an indictment, or using the threat of one to compel a resignation. Full stop.

Different laws for different people, Bejing-Biden is untouchable. He knows it. Everybody knows it. God himself couldn’t indict the Bidens –

When I saw the title of the article, I just had to see you was pushing this fantasy today. I’m kind of surprised RBC would be penning a piece like this, as he should know better. The reality is NO ONE on the Democrat side ever gets held accountable for any illegal actions they may have committed. At least no one at the Cabinet level and above in D.C.. In Congress, it’s just standard operating procedure to use your elected office for personal enrichment. So sorry RBC, it doesn’t matter how many bribes Joe Biden accepted to sell out our country. Neither he nor either of his brothers or son will ever see the inside of a jail cell.

Both the DOJ and the FBI report directly to the POTUS, along with all the 3 letter intelligence agencies. With what we’ve all seen over the last several years, longer in many cases, it is crystal clear that both will do everything in their power to protect a Democrat POTUS and his family from any all criminal accountability. Sorry, but that is just the reality we have today with the federal government so utterly corrupt and compromised.

Dictator Beijing biden is guilty of Corruption, Election Fraud, Election Interference, Stealing Sensitive Highly Classified Documents from White House WITHOUT National Security Clearance (Still hasn’t turned over the 1,804 Sensitive Highly Classified Documents he STOLE ILLEGALLY), Colluding with Communist China, Accepting Payments/Bribes from Communist China, Accepting Bribes from Russia, Espionage and Treason, Surrendered to Taliban Terrorist giving them $86 Billion in U.S. Military Weapons and Equipment including largest Airport in the world, Violating Oath of Office, Violating the U.S. Constitution, Attacking the U.S. Constitution, Attacking Americans illegally, Illegal and Unconstitutional Executive Orders, Weaponization of Federal Agencies, including Illegal Alien Terrorist Invasion (Punishable by 10 Years in Prison for Each Illegal Alien entering the USA illegally violating the National Security Act and U.S. Constitution including laws set by Congress).
Can add clinton and obama (Benghazi) to charges as well.
Yet, these CRIMINALS are still running around free but expect us to obey their Communist agenda and LOSER WOKE agenda.
The above three are GUILTY as CHARGED for ESPIONAGE and HIGH TREASON.
WHY aren’t they EXECUTED for ESPIONAGE and TREASON which IS
punishable by DEATH under the LAW?
WHY are they still running around free?

… the US$64 thousand question, how many people does it take to legally rob a bank? Well, they gunned Dillinger down like a dog. So, we know it isn’t one. Collectively, so thoroughly have the Clintons and the Obamas corrupted Washington DC, indictment of any one democrat sets off a domino affect, cascading through America’s judicial system, America’s executive branch, half America’s legislature, the FBI, the CIA, the DOJ, and the mainstream media. Different laws, for different people, too many people to have to take-down, what you’ve just read constitutes rule of thumb, about how many people it takes, to legally rob banks –

Biden getting indited is unlikely. Democrat officials are loyal to the Party. Even with clear evidence there is no way they will take action against him.

I don’t know who else saw this on Fox News. It was quite a long while ago It was a tape of then Vice-President Joe Biden talking to a group of Ukrainian Leaders. Joe said if they don’t fire the prosecutor who is checking into Hunter’s job they are not getting the (I think he said Billions) they are not getting the money. They said you can’t do that and Joe replied oh yes I can Obama said I could. Joe said he was leaving later and would see what will happen. Joe comes on later and says he was fired (the Prosecutor) and they got the money.

The article has a technical error. The President CAN in fact be impeached as that is the House equivalent of an indictment. He would not be convicted when the trial was held in the Senate. Former President Trump was impeached but not convicted.

The Obamas and the Clinton’s only meant to swing the 2016 election. But, when they’d botched the job, they knee-jerked themselves into damage control, with nothing to loose going scorched Earth, subsequently corrupting every judicial body, every federal law enforcement bureau, public education, our legislature, and the mainstream media. Letting loose the fox in the hen house, the Biden family went berserk, absolutely nothing to loose, knowing full well they could never prosecuted for anything, not without bringing down the entire Washington DC policy community, with them –

The Bidens, the Clintons, and all other low-life such as them will never have one thing happen to them in the nature of retribution. They will all go on as if nothing happened. They are untouchable. The government is rigged. However, there will be a day they will pay for all their crimes and multiple sins against America and humanity. The cannot escape God’s wrath.

Default on USA debt is getting close to June 1st diaster , unless both parties start working together. Saw a poll yesterday that had 15% of Republicans & 9% of Democrats want a default rather that give an inch to other party. And also Trump , said he is for default rather than Republicans give in. For the sake of all the rest of us American citizens, I hope we do not see a default as it has never happened before & damage could be devastation to Americans. Trump term saw the longest government shutdown in history over spending , but I do not think that Trump realizes this default might be ten fold worse. Another thing about poll yesterday, is that both Democrat bill & Republican bill will increase the National Debt by +$1 Trillion and makes me wonder how either party views the Debt issue.

The Republicans are all talk! We waited and waited on the Durham report, and that resulted in a big goose egg! Now you’ll investigate Lieden for another six years, he’ll die before the report is finished, and another goose egg will be produced! The Republicans appear to work against each other. Lieden has been in office for years, and the Republicans still have no results, just plenty of reports to work on….YAWN!

Biden needs to be arrested and charged just like any American who commits a crime. His smug look on his face says he is invincible. I’d love to see someone do something that would wipe away his crooked smile!

Won’t happen!!!! Never does!!!! Look at Hillary and Benghazi and all the games she played.Still free.The list continues. Biden and Hunter will find a beach and laugh at us the working dummies. They will beat Trump by cheating and no one will listen. China troops will be here sooner than you may think and to late to reverse. Americans will open the door for the enemy and kiss their feet. Then the media will really be controlled as well as everything we do ,no guns allowed.Trump will be a good memory.imo
