Politico Breaks Apparent Joey B $ Hustle: Biden & His Son-in-Law Caught Playing Fast and Loose W/ Conflict-of-Interest. Ethics. Profit
This is what happens when the Leftist-aligned media throw a protective shield over anything that even resembles Democrat criminality. The emboldened pols roll with impunity unafraid of any consequences for their actions. It is the same mentality that allows Hunter Biden to spend thousands a night at strip clubs and knock up strippers, knowing that he is above the law, so to speak.
Howard Krein is Joe Biden’s son-in-law. Krein is advising the Biden campaign on the Coronavirus pandemic at the same time that his firm is investing in companies that stand to gain from it.
We’re not the only ones who see the potential conflict-of-interest here. Left wing news outlet Politico also raised a red flag…
(Politico) At the same time that Joe Biden’s son-in-law, Howard Krein, has been advising Biden’s campaign on its coronavirus response, Krein’s venture capital business has been running a special initiative to invest in health care startups that offer solutions to the pandemic…
… Krein simultaneously advising the campaign and venturing into Covid investing could pose conflict-of-interest concerns for a Biden administration or simply create the awkward appearance of Krein profiting off his father-in-law’s policies. Since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, the federal government has directed tens of billions of dollars in coronavirus medical spending in areas like testing and vaccine research to private firms. It is poised to spend billions more next year and possibly beyond.
Politico quotes the founder of Roy Healthcare Research, Avik Roy, who told the news outlet; “I have little doubt that the relationship to Joe Biden, particularly if he becomes president, would attract the interest of some investors.”
It’s a family trait

Looky here, more lucrative Biden family gigs. “In a 2012 SEC filing, it said it had raised $500,000. In a 2015 filing, StartUp Health Holdings said it had raised $5 million of a $30 million offering. And in 2018, it announced it had raised a $31 million.” https://t.co/AOtQv3gEi2

When questioned about what ethical safeguards might apply to their candidate’s son-in-law, the campaign of presidential candidate Joe Biden’s answer reflected a level of hubris that reflects a disregard for the intelligence of the voting public.
According to Politico;
“the campaign official pointed to the former vice president’s 2019 statement to POLITICO that ‘I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses. Period. And what I will do is the same thing we did in our administration. There will be an absolute wall between personal and private [business interests] and the government.’”
It was just yesterday that we learned that yet to be authenticated data from the hard drive of a laptop, containing a slew of emails to and from Biden’s son Hunter, suggested that the younger Biden had allegedly arranged a meeting between the then-VP and a key executive in contradiction of his later assertion; I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses. Period.
