Move over Dr. B! There’s a new lady from the House of Biden who is stealing the spotlight.
Hallie Biden, widow of Beau Biden and ex-lover of her brother-in-law Hunter Biden, has earned the scrutiny of the House GOP.
After two months of stalling, this week the Treasury Department finally handed over suspicious activity reports relating to Hunter Biden’s finances to House Republicans.
Shortly thereafter, House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer revealed that a “new” Biden family member was involved in the divvying up of a windfall of Chinese cash.
The New York Post reported that back in 2017, “State Energy HK Limited, a firm affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party-backed energy company CEFC China Energy, wired $3 million to Biden family associate Rob Walker.”
Over the next three months, Walker distributed cuts of this $3 million to different members of the Biden bunch.
After plenty of speculation, the new Biden was revealed: Hallie Biden.
Personally, I had my money on Joe’s sister Valerie Biden Owens — but hey, there’s always next time.
So why was Hallie involved? What did she bring to the table or offer up in exchange for her chunk of China change?
Hunter is a man of many talents. He is a pipe artist, lawyer, author, amateur film maker, parmesan cheese connoisseur… the list goes on and on.
The First Son, and the smartest man Joe Biden knows, could be offering up any of his skills in exchange for his cut of the wire. Wherever Hunter goes, big money, big diamonds and big business deals seem to follow.
What does Hallie’s résumé look like? She currently sits on the board of the Beau Biden Foundation. Previously, she worked as a school counselor at two different private prep schools in Delaware.
At the risk of offending the guidance counselor community (who certainly never asked to be included in this narrative), what exactly is a guidance counselor offering up in exchange for $35,000 from a Chinese energy company?
On top of her lackluster résumé, Hallie is also a non-blood relative.
I assumed the Bidens handled in-laws in the same way the Corleones did in The Godfather.
When Tom Hagen asks Vito Corleone if he wants his son-in-law to get an important job in the family business, Vito replies, “Never. Give him a living, but never discuss the family business with him.”
I guess the First Family has adopted a more modern, inclusive mob mentality. How sweet.
Hallie does have one thing in her favor: she is party to all the family secrets.
Hunter and Hallie’s relationship was far from the traditional love story. Back in 2016, after Hunter’s daughter Finnegan discovered shocking messages between her father and her aunt, the secret was out. Hunter’s ex-wife Kathleen felt vindicated by the news of the affair. Up until that point, her therapist and her crack-addicted husband had gaslit her into thinking she was crazy.
When Joe found out that Hunter was having a scandalous affair with Hallie, he supported the relationship wholeheartedly.
“We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness,” he wrote in a statement. “They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them.”
With the Big Guy’s blessing, the two lovebirds began a relationship full of misadventures.
One memorable example? In 2018, Hallie found Hunter’s handgun and threw it away in a trashcan across the street from a high school. She was worried that Hunter was unstable and would use the gun on himself. Over the course of several different text messages, Hunter — determined to prove just how unstable he truly was — berated Hallie for her bizarre decision to dump the gun.
That same year, Hunter urged Hallie to get tested for HIV and told her — again via text — that she had a poisoned mind. Add throwing stones from within glass houses to Hunter’s long list of impressive talents.
Hallie knows better than anyone whether Joe Biden used his son Hunter to do his dirty work.
She must know that if push comes to shove, the Big Guy would have no issue having her or anyone else take the fall for his possible indiscretions.
