Despite the media’s attempts to distract from the latest scandal involving the Biden family, information has emerged indicating that President Joe Biden may have taken bribes during his tenure as vice president. According to FBI documentation and testimony from an informant, a Ukrainian energy company allegedly paid the Bidens to intervene on the company’s behalf while it was under investigation.

This scandal could hamper Biden’s chances of winning reelection in 2024, which is why the left is using the indictment against Trump to deflect attention away from it.

Nevertheless, the truth is slowly starting to come out.

On Thursday, the Biden bribery scandal blew up big time, with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) revealing what she said was in the FBI bribery report that the members of the House Oversight Committee received. The big takeaway from what MTG said was that Joe Biden allegedly got $5 million in exchange for actions he took when he was vice president, and his son Hunter got another $5 million.

According to sources familiar with an FBI interview, a confidential human source claimed that President Joe Biden received a $5 million payment from an executive of Ukrainian gas firm Burisma Holdings, where his son Hunter Biden sat on the board. The FBI-generated FD-1023 form, dated June 2020, detailed the alleged criminal bribery scheme involving influence over US policy decisions.

The source claimed that the Burisma executive sought advice on US oil rights and involvement with a US oil company, mentioning Hunter Biden’s role on the board. The executive reportedly explained that payments were made to the Bidens because Burisma was being investigated by Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin.

The FD-1023 form, used by the FBI to record unverified reporting from confidential human sources, described the discussions between the source and the Burisma executive regarding the payments. The Burisma executive allegedly mentioned that the payments were made through various bank accounts to make them difficult to trace.

The confidential human source, who has been a reliable source of information for the FBI since 2010 and received approximately $200,000 from the bureau, expressed concerns about the Bidens and advised the executive to distance themselves from them. Reports have suggested that the source is known to be “highly credible,” which should make the allegations against the president even more damning.

Predictably, President Biden denies having taken bribes from Burisma. During a press conference with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, a reporter asked the president about the revelation. “Where’s the money?” he responded. “I’m joking. That’s a bunch of malarkey.”

There are still many unknown factors in this equation and more details are sure to come as House Republicans continue investigating the matter. If there is fire along with the smoke, then there is a chance it could influence the political landscape, especially as it pertains to the upcoming 2024 election.

The bribery scandal poses a serious threat to President Biden’s image and credibility. If proven true, it would undermine his claims of transparency and integrity, and erode public trust in his leadership. He has always portrayed himself as an honest nice guy. But this could further show that this reputation is undeserved. The scandal will also revive concerns about the Biden family’s business dealings and potential conflicts of interest, which were raised during the 2020 election campaign.

Public opinion plays a pivotal role in any election, and the bribery allegations could sway voters’ perceptions of President Biden. The scandal provides an opportunity for his political adversaries to paint him as part of a corrupt establishment and a symbol of the Washington “swamp.”

The allegations may reinforce the narrative that Biden’s political career has been marked by questionable dealings and cast doubt on his ability to govern effectively. However, the ultimate impact will depend on how the public perceives and reacts to these allegations. Investigations, legal proceedings, and the dissemination of information through media channels will influence public opinion in the coming months and could benefit the Republican Party’s chances of winning big in 2024.

The bribery allegations could trigger legal proceedings and investigations, further complicating Biden’s reelection prospects. However, this outcome is unlikely, given the partisanship we have seen in federal agencies. Still, House Republicans could turn up even more damning information as they look into the issue.

It is worth noting that the activist media will be rallying to protect the president from these allegations. Indeed, left-leaning news organizations are barely covering the scandal. The indictment against Trump has given them something else to focus their attention on, and they have eagerly jumped at the opportunity. Still, if Republicans play their cards right, they can use this scandal to their advantage in 2024.
