President Joe Biden was confronted by a reporter concerning allegations there is physical evidence that exists proving he was involved in a bribery deal while he served as vice president in the Obama administration, and his response was, well, a bit on the weird side.
According to The Western Journal’s latest report, GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley from Iowa has stated that there is a confidential source who is allegedly claiming to have paid Biden and his wayward son Hunter a very large sum of money as a bribe in exchange for political influence.
“Grassley said from the Senate floor that the individual who paid the father and sons kept recordings of them — 17 in total — as an ‘insurance policy’ in case they were needed in the future,” the report said. “That led to one reporter shouting a question at Biden on Tuesday after the president left an event in the White House East Room, according to the New York Post.”
“Are there tapes that you accepted bribes, President Biden? Is that true?” the president was asked.
Because he "knows" nothing will happen to him.

So how did our commander-in-chief respond to the question?
He turned around with a smile plastered on his face, chuckled a bit to himself, then shook his head without uttering a response. This kind of response has become very common place when Biden is asked a challenging question that attempts to get him to respond to allegations of corruption. He feels pretty comfortable in our current “two-tiered” system of justice that has taken root in our country.
“Last week, Biden brushed off questions concerning allegations against him that were made to the FBI and reviewed by lawmakers,” the Post said in its report.
“Where’s the money?” Biden said in his reply to the question, going on to add, “I’m joking. It’s a bunch of malarkey.”
Twitter had a whole lot to say about Biden’s response.
Good for you for asking this. The response is terrifying.

I’m glad he finds it funny.

Matt Whitaker, former acting Attorney General, referred to the claim made by Grassley as “explosive.”
“There’s so many issues surrounding this, but remember what my home state senator, Chuck Grassley, said. This was redacted from the document they looked at, the 1023 that Chris Wray finally provided to the House and the Senate,” he stated during an interview with Fox News, making a reference to the FD-1023 form legislators looked at just last week after weeks of fighting to get it from the FBI.
“This information, that there were recordings of the president of United States talking to a foreign national about bribes, was redacted from that 1023. That’s extraordinary in and of itself,” he added.
“Now, the contents, if true, I mean, obviously this is a cataclysmic event because you just don’t have these types of recordings usually available. And … it will prove essentially what Joe Biden knew and what his scheme was to abuse his power as vice president,” Whitaker said.
Biden is flippant because he doesn’t believe, not for a second, that he will actually be held accountable for his corruption. He’s well protected by his fellow Democrats. We not only need to know if the president was involved in bribery, but we need to see him experience consequences for it.
