Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Dodges Questions on Biden Family Corruption

Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. refused to address the mounting corruption allegations surrounding the Biden family, dismissing it as a campaign issue during an interview with Fox News Digital. Kennedy, speaking at the FreedomFest conference, emphasized his focus on issues and values rather than engaging in personal attacks.

When pressed on the controversies surrounding Hunter Biden and the House Republicans’ claims of foreign money funneling, Kennedy declined to comment directly on alleged corruption. While acknowledging that it could be a concern for voters, he stated that it wasn’t a focal point of his campaign.

Kennedy has a similar approach this election cycle as Senator Bernie Sanders in 2016, where Sanders famously dismissed Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. The recent scandal surrounding the Biden family intensified with Hunter Biden’s settlement on tax violations and a felony gun charge, which some critics deemed a “sweetheart deal” with the Justice Department.

IRS whistleblowers have claimed that Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss sought more severe charges in other locations but was denied, according to reports from Fox News. One whistleblower, IRS special agent Gary Shapley, said that investigators were dissuaded from exploring potential financial ties between Hunter Biden and his father, Joe Biden.

Moreover, another FBI whistleblower suggested that the DOJ was informed about a bribery scheme involving Joe Biden, when he was still Vice President under the Obama administration, and a foreign entity.

House Republicans have unveiled findings that point to potential financial links between different members of the Biden family and countries like China and Romania. These revelations have sparked concerns regarding the potential national security risk of foreign adversaries gaining knowledge of documents and information sensitive to our nation and whether President Biden permitted his family to capitalize on their name during his vice presidency and beyond.

The existence of an email referencing “10% for the big guy” has also raised questions about possible kickbacks. These developments have thrust the issue of ethical conduct and potential conflicts of interest into the spotlight once again.

The allegations and controversies surrounding the Biden family’s financial dealings continue to raise questions about ethical conduct and potential conflicts of interest.

However, Kennedy’s decision to steer clear of the topic reflects his campaign’s focus on broader issues and values rather than engaging in specific attacks or discussions on individual controversies.

GOP bill proposes extra measures to ensure noncitizens are unable to vote in federal elections

GOP members of both the U.S. House and Senate introduced a bill to add safeguards to ensure that non U.S. citizens who are already prohibited from voting in federal elections, do not do so. The bill seeks to amend the National Voter Registration Act to require documentary proof of United States citizenship to register to vote.

The Center Square reports that It would require states to obtain proof of citizenship – in person – when registering an individual to vote. Applicants would have to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote in person, when applying for a motor vehicle license, and when applying to vote by mail. The bill lists accepted citizenship documentation and requirements for voter registration agencies.

U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, led a coalition of 49 Republicans to introduce the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act in the U.S. House. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, with several cosponsors, introduced the same bill in the Senate.

Citing the border crisis and the greatest number of foreign nationals illegally entering the country in U.S. history, the measure’s supporters expressed alarm that instead of being deported, many are being registered to vote.

“There is currently an unprecedented and a clear and present danger to the integrity of our election system,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said. “And that is the threat of non-citizens and illegal aliens voting in our elections. In the last five and a half months or so, I’ve been to over 101 cities doing events all around the country in more than half the states. The first or second question that I’m asked in every public forum is about election security. Americans are deeply concerned about this. And it doesn’t matter where you live or whether you’re in a blue state or a red state, everyone’s concerned.”

Johnson blamed President Joe Biden and his administration’s policies for for what he described as widespread concern about election integrity.

“… we now have so many non-citizens in the country that if only one out of 100 of those voted, they would cast hundreds of thousands of votes,” the speaker added. “And since our elections are so razor thin in these days that we’re in, just a few precincts in a few states decide the makeup of Congress and who is elected to the White House. This is a dangerously high number, and it’s a great concern to millions and millions of Americans. It could obviously change the outcome of our elections, and this is not an empty threat or concern.”

It is already a federal crime for non-citizens to vote in a federal election. Despite this, Johnson said, “no current mechanism to ensure only those registering or voting are actually citizens. … If a nefarious actor wants to intervene in our elections, all they have to do is check a box on a form and sign their name. That’s it. That’s all that’s required. And there’s a very small chance that illegal would get caught [because] states do not have the election infrastructure in place to confirm what they’ve said.”

Johnson said noncitizens “can simply go to their local welfare office or the DMV and register to vote there,” adding that “states are currently prohibited from asking someone to prove that they’re a citizen when they use the federal voter registration form.”

He also gave examples of “a growing number of localities” that are “blurring the lines for non-citizens by allowing them to vote in municipal local elections.

“You might not know this, but non-citizens are voting,” he warned Americans. “Democrats have expressed a desire to turn on citizens and voters. That’s what this open border has been all about.”

Roy said the proposed SAVE Act “would thwart Democrat efforts to cement one-party rule by upholding and strengthening current law that permits only U.S. citizens to vote in Federal elections.”

Lee said the bill should “pass right away” and unanimously in both houses of Congress. “The only reason to oppose this … would be if you want noncitizens to vote.”

It also would create a new program requiring the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration to share information with state registration systems. States would be required to identify noncitizens attempting to register to vote by accessing data in DHS’ Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program and the SSA’s Social Security Number Verification Service. The information would be compared with data from state agencies that supply state identification cards or driver’s licenses.

The bill also would require states to remove non-citizens from existing voter rolls and increases federal penalties for those who register non-citizens to vote in federal elections.
