- Recent polls indicate a growing number of voters believe that President Joe Biden had a role in his family’s foreign business dealings.
- In September 2022, a Rasmussen poll revealed that 62% of voters think Biden likely consulted on, and possibly profited from, family business deals.
- House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has announced his panel will bring in additional witnesses regarding the “Biden family influence-peddling schemes.”
Polling data reveals an evolving public sentiment suggesting President Joe Biden’s involvement in his family’s overseas business deals. Despite his multiple denials of any participation in these deals, or even discussions with his son Hunter about them, voters appear increasingly skeptical. The percentage of voters believing in his involvement rose from 58% in April 2022 to 66% in a June poll by Harvard/HarrisX.
These polling numbers gain significance amidst allegations that Joe Biden was paid a $5 million bribe by Mykola Zlochevsky, the founder of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Republican lawmakers claim Zlochevsky possesses two audio recordings that serve as insurance for the alleged pay-for-play scheme.
Given this context, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has recently announced that his panel will commence bringing in additional witnesses related to its inquiry into the “Biden family influence-peddling schemes.” This move symbolizes a significant escalation in the investigation.
While Biden has consistently distanced himself from his family’s business affairs, these developments have increased scrutiny around his potential involvement. As public trust seems to wane, the House Oversight Committee’s forthcoming investigations could prove pivotal in clarifying this controversial matter.
From the vantage point of a conservative observer, the recent polls indicating the public’s increasing belief in President Joe Biden’s involvement in his family’s foreign business deals cannot be ignored. This shift in sentiment suggests that the curtain of plausible deniability that has been drawn over the Biden family’s overseas dealings may be wearing thin.
These numbers bear testament to the fact that Americans are not easily deceived. Despite Biden’s repeated denials of his involvement in any family business or overseas ventures, the electorate appears to be increasingly doubtful of these claims. This growing skepticism among voters aligns with my personal conviction that where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire.
What’s even more telling is the increasing scrutiny of Biden’s activities by the House Oversight Committee. When a Republican-led panel feels compelled to delve deeper into the allegations surrounding the President’s potential participation in “Biden family influence-peddling schemes,” it gives credence to the public’s mounting suspicion.
The possibility of Biden’s involvement in his family’s business affairs not only raises ethical questions but also security concerns. Any potential overseas entanglements of a sitting President are deeply troubling.
Even though Biden has consistently sought to distance himself from his family’s business ventures, these allegations and the increasing public belief in his potential involvement underscore the importance of transparency in leadership. As a nation, we deserve the truth, and I look forward to the revelations the House Oversight Committee’s investigations may bring.
