When Joe Biden was campaigning for President, he faced questions concerning his son’s overseas business affairs. And Hunter Biden’s foreign connections continue to be investigated.
And now that Joe has become President, it’s no surprise that his family will remain under the microscope. This includes his brother, Frank, who’s part of a prominent Florida law firm.
Unfortunately, it looks like Frank might’ve made a mistake.
Just this week, Politico reported that President Biden gave his family a clear warning: “For Christ’s sake, watch yourself.” Specifically, Joe was warning Frank about his potential business dealings.
Perhaps that warning was well-founded.
Because now it seems like Frank Biden used Joe’s political fame to help promote his law firm (via The Daily Caller):
Frank Biden, one of President Joe Biden’s two brothers, used the presidential inauguration as the centerpiece of an advertisement promoting his law firm.
Frank Biden is a senior adviser in charge of government relations with the Berman Law Group in Boca Raton, Florida, and he apparently wasn’t afraid to piggyback off Joe’s presidency.
Initially, Frank denied ever using his brother’s name to help his business.
But according to a CNBC report, an ad for the law firm ran with a photograph of Frank Biden, put together with quotes about his life and his relationship with the White House.
This isn’t the first time Biden’s family members have been accused of using Joe’s political success for personal gain.
In addition to Hunter Biden’s Burisma dealings, another of Joe’s brothers – James – worked with Hunter on a business agreement with a Chinese energy company.
During this negotiation, they allegedly cited Joe Biden’s strong relationship with the president of Columbia, which sweetened the deal.
In other words, there are plenty of reasons for President Biden to warn his family, because it does seem as if they’ve used Joe’s celebrity and political connections to get ahead.
Nepotism is common in politics and government, of course, but it tends to hurt reputations.
Will President Biden’s reputation continue to take hits during his tenure, due to his family’s actions?
If Frank, Hunter, and James don’t heed Joe’s warnings, this certainly seems possible.
- President Joe Biden reportedly warned his family – and specifically, his brother Frank – about their possible business dealings.
- But it seems Frank Biden used Joe’s fame to help promote his law firm.
- Hunter Biden and James Biden have also been accused of using Joe’s power and influence for personal gain.
