As deeper scandals are exposed in Washington, D.C., more Democrats must defend their knowledge of or involvement in what took place. Unexpected connections among Democrats are being revealed as the details emerge of who did what and when.
Democrats usually band together when a scandal breaks, but when national offices are in play the ties that bind the liberals aren’t always as strong as expected. High-profile investigations into Joe Biden and his family came to roost in California after dozens of emails were exposed.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has been connected to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, through the younger Biden’s infamous laptop. Emails show the president’s son donated thousands of dollars to Newsom’s gubernatorial campaign and lent his name to multiple fundraisers on his behalf.
From Fox News:
Newsom… brushed off allegations of Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings last week, saying it is “hardly unique” for people to use their family members to get ahead.
He side-stepped direct comments by saying he didn’t “know enough about the details of that.” He commented that there are people in many industries, not just politics, where family members and relationships lead to people trying to “parlay and get a little influence and benefit in that respect.”
The connection between Newsom and Hunter Biden came after Newsom officially agreed to participate in a Fox News debate on Nov. 30 against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) with Sean Hannity moderating. Fox News Digital reviewed emails between Hunter and Newsom and his associates discussing matters such as fundraising, promoting documentaries, and personal conversations over the course of nearly a decade.
The emails in question go back more than a decade. These include direct communication via email between Newsom and Hunter Biden, and an email where Hunter referred to Newsom as a “good friend” in an email to a lobbyist. Another email shows Newsom telling Hunter how “grateful” he was for Hunter’s help with donations.
While Newsom has said he does not plan to run for president, he has made connections via other politicians and the upcoming DeSantis debate that place him clearly within the national debate. How these connections may help him will play out in time and people need to know just who he is connected to, especially when it comes to the Biden family.
