Despite a near media blackout on the growing Hunter Biden scandal, most voters appear aware of it and believe that President Joe Biden “perhaps profited” off his son’s schemes linked to Ukraine, Russia and China.
What’s more, according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey that should make the White House nervous, voters believe that had the scandal been more publicized, especially reports about Hunter Biden’s laptop filled with potentially damaging evidence, his father would not have been elected.
The survey … bolsters GOP calls for a probe into the financial affairs of the Biden family. Top Republican congressional leaders are pledging to hold hearings on it if they take control of Congress in the fall elections, as expected.
The poll was provided first to Miranda Devine, who has been dogging the Biden scandal and the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop for the New York Post. Late last night she reported that a Delaware grand jury is moving “closer to potentially indicting Hunter, 52, over alleged tax evasion, money laundering and violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.”
She said that pressure is also growing on the president and White House to explain Biden’s role in “the international influence-peddling scheme run by his son and brother, Jim Biden, while he was vice president.”
The Post revealed the existence of the laptop shortly before the 2020 election. It had apparently been forgotten at a repair shop by Hunter Biden. It reportedly has damning evidence and emails on it about the money scandal.
The media downplayed reports about it, possibly helping Biden escape a last-minute election scandal and potential loss to former President Donald Trump.
Just recently, the media has acknowledged the existence of the computer.
