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.

Videotapes from Jan. 6 Committee Witness Interviews Vanish
Videotapes containing witness interviews conducted by the Democrat-led January 6 congressional committee have disappeared. The chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), expressed his apprehension on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.
According to Loudermilk, all videotapes of depositions have vanished, raising questions about the preservation of crucial evidence. He argued that, under House rules, these tapes qualified as congressional evidence, especially since some clips were aired during hearings. Loudermilk contended that the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct Jan. 6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.).
Loudermilk’s revelation has broader implications, potentially impacting criminal trials in both state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington, where individuals, including former President Donald Trump, face charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Notably, Trump’s legal team had recently requested evidence from the Jan. 6 committee but was denied by a judge.
The situation takes a further twist as Loudermilk disclosed that the J6 committee had sent certain evidence, such as transcripts, to the Biden White House and the Homeland Security Department. Shockingly, these transcripts have now been returned to Loudermilk’s GOP-led subcommittee almost entirely redacted, preventing the disclosure of their contents.
The lack of records regarding witnesses, their statements, and the extensive redactions have raised concerns among House Republicans. Loudermilk emphasized that these documents belong to the House and should not have been sent in such a heavily redacted form. The chairman questioned the motives behind the redactions, asking why a Democrat-run House was allowed to have unredacted documents while a Republican committee’s efforts were obstructed. This development adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing investigations into the events surrounding January 6, 2021.
