    Seeing as the threads on the election are old news, the election is done I'm thinking that now it is allowed to talk about this?

    Most media is pretending nothing happened of course. But it's getting reported anyway.

    In the US there's a justice for the powerful, connected one and one for the plebs, everyone knows. The Bidens will not have to worry, hell Joe will soon be able to pardon his son and himself.

    I think that understanding will slowly settle, during 2021, that nothing was changed for the better with this election in the US... in fact very little was changed at all.

    It would be dreadful if the next lot of US legislators tied themselves up in legal knots and didn't get much done. :lol:

    A divided federal appeals court has upheld the power of legislators in the House minority to demand records from the executive branch.
    ...
    However, the ruling from the appeals court could set a precedent that lasts for years or even decades, upholding the rarely used power
    of the House minority to compel the release of information that the Oversight Committee majority may not wish to seek.

    In the upcoming Congress, that power would accrue to Republicans on the panel as they make inquiries about Biden and his administration.

    Billy Carter took $200,000 from the Libyans and all they got in return was becoming a punchline.

    Have I any reason to suspect Hunter isn’t the same, just dressed like Gordon Gekko?

    I'm sure we can rely on The American Conservative for neutral and fact-filled reporting on this issue.

    I'd be happy to talk about Biden's corruption, but the only thing you linked was the laptop conspiracy.

    Rudy G. is so patriotic he'd begin proceedings with even less evidence.

    It has the nice story development of Rudy Giuliani infiltrating the FBI to acquire the laptop. There is nothing this man cannot do.

    The laptop is pure fabrication on the part of conservatives. Do you have a reason to suspect corruption, or are you only going to parrot fascist lies as if you believed them?

    I thought the laptop was supposed to be a russian fabrication. Now it's a conservative one? :lol: whatever.

    Biden's "job" receiving a monthly bribe from a ukranian oligarch is established and recognized fact. His father's hands in ukranian politics at the time is an established fact. The useless Biden accompanying the father's official trip to china is an official fact. Biden's partner in corruption claiming that the president-elect was in on the bribe scheme in Ukraine is an established Fact. Neither of the Bidens dared call him a liar flat out or sue for defamation, why?

    Just because you voted for him you don't have to pretend he isn't corrupt.

    Nobody ever mentioned Russia with regards to the laptop story. It's established fact that it's an invention of Giuliani and the trump cult.

    I'll be back to talk about this after Jan 21, when Biden has already been sworn in as POTUS. Until that happens, given Republicans/Conservatives continued denial of the election results... this discussion is entirely premature.

    Wasn't allowed

    Just because you didn't vote for him doesn't mean you have to believe in GOP propaganda :lol:

    Rumsfeld was both the youngest (Ford) and oldest (Bush II) Secretary of Defense. That's just my little favorite bit of Pentagon trivia.

    I'm kind of surprised Inno would go for the Trump-bogus-sock-puppet distraction stuff about Hunter Biden here?

    Joe Biden after all has REAL dirt on him from a looong career in public service:
    https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/11/biden-bankruptcy-president/

    The Hunter-Biden-BS-red-herring stuff seems popular with Trump because he apparently understands it (unlike the problem with bankruptcy laws favouring business) because it's personal and about attacking family, which resonates with Trump.

    There's really no point talking about Biden's son's alleged corruption without looking at the corruption from Trump and his family. The allegations against Biden's son are just a distract from Trump's rampant corruption. A classic case of "look over there".

    As soon as Trump leaves, we'll soon be seeing more information about how corrupt Trump really is and how foolish the American people were in voting for him in 2016.
