During Trump’s presidency, Democrats and the media shrieked that Trump would use the office to enrich his family and friends.
It’s funny how quiet those same people are now, under Biden.
Biden just nominated one of his son Hunter’s pals to work at the Department of Justice, who also represented Burisma, the Ukraine energy company that Hunter is connected to in a somewhat shady way.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
DOJ Nominee Worked with Hunter Biden at Law Firm Tied To Ukrainian Energy Giant
Joe Biden’s nominee for a top Justice Department position worked alongside Hunter Biden at a prominent law firm that represented Ukrainian energy giant Burisma Holdings, emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop show.
Hampton Dellinger, who President Biden nominated on Friday to lead the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Policy, worked on the Crisis Management and Government Response team at Boies Schiller Flexner, an international law firm where Biden served as counsel. Emails from Biden’s laptop show he worked closely with lawyers on Boies Schiller Flexner’s crisis management team.
He referred Burisma Holdings to the crisis unit as a client in April 2014. Biden’s laptop emails also indicate he attended a private dinner party with Dellinger and several other Boies Schiller Flexner lawyers in March 2014.
The link could pose a potential conflict of interest as the Justice Department is investigating Hunter Biden over his tax affairs and foreign business dealings. Federal prosecutors are also reportedly investigating whether a Democratic consulting firm that worked closely with Biden illegally lobbied for Burisma.
Nothing to see here!
Hunter Biden’s former law partner tapped for a senior DOJ role. Nothing to see here folks.

Good thing Hunter Biden isn't under federal investigation or this might look really bad. https://t.co/2lhjSKR0e1

Do you think the media would care if this story was about Donald Trump Jr. and not Hunter?
