Joe Biden is still hoping that he can continue to mock and the media will continue to do the rest. One reporter this week did raise the scandal but only to ask if Biden discussed it with people he is considering nominating for attorney general (the campaign already said that Biden was going to allow the Justice Department to reach its own conclusions).

There are other obvious questions, including whether a key business associate of the Bidens, Tony Bobulinski, is lying. Either Bobulinski or Joe Biden is lying.

Bobulinski, who is repeatedly praised by Hunter Biden in emails and is identified as the person in control of transactions for “the family,” has directly contradicted Joe Biden’s denial of any knowledge or involvement in his son’s dubious dealings.

There is a reason why Joe Biden does not just answer that question. If he calls Bobulinski a liar, Biden would be hit with a defamation lawsuit within days. He would then be forced to go under oath to answer questions.
