Is Hunter Biden a problem for Joe Biden?

Is Hunter Biden a problem for Joe Biden? 1


President Donald Trump’s desire for foreign governments to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, has become the basis of the House impeachment inquiry. But Trump's megaphone is bringing to light questions about proximity to power and political privilege, which could cause a problem for Joe Biden's campaign. #CNN #News #Cillizza

  1. Hey, Chris here — should politicians’ children’s personal lives be off-limits?

    • You say this now… (should politicians’ children’s personal lives be off-limits?) What about all the nonsense said about Barron Trump?! Or the rest of his family for that matter?! The double standards amaze me. These videos are a joke and all government is corrupt.

    • @Garry G I punched ur mother in the face last night and ur sissy dad didn’t do a thing about it! What’s good!!!

    • Depends on if the child is actually a child or an adult.
      If they are an adult.. Go at them hard as anybody else.
      If they are an actual child.. That gets complicated. I personally would hope they are able to get left alone as much as possible until they are adults.

    • The Hunters become the hunted

  2. Joe is Joe’s problem. There are plenty other candidates. We don’t have to pick corruption.

  3. Biden dropped Obama’s name on that Ukraine video

  4. Biden is Hillary 2.0

      @Jesseaffiliate 3 years of Mueller investigation into Trump-Russia and they found NOTHING connecting them rofl. We are going to be TAKING THE RIGHT TO VOTE AWAY from you cucks before the end of Trump’s next term. Watch, f@ggot

    • @Leeanne Bishop actually the story isn’t about Trump. Not everyone is obsessed with our glorious leader President Donald J Trump.

    It’s the fact that bidens son was getting paid 50 G a month to b on a board is a problem and is corruption

  6. Joe Biden is a problem for Joe Biden

  7. When did you guys start caring about Fact?

  8. After watching this, I’m convinced there is no collusion, corruption, and my common sense has deceived me. Maybe there really is ocean front property in Arizona

  9. Joe Biden is a problem for Joe Biden

  10. I didn’t know all that negative information about Hunter Biden…thanks for filling me in CNN. 😂

  11. Whoa! Wait. Hunter was with his brother’s widow after he died? Gross

    • @Joey Martinez Joey you’re HOMOSEXUAL right?

    • @Joey Martinez Trump isn’t a liberal pedo or a smelly crimigrant so he doesn’t have sex with his daughter.

      There’s nothing the democRATS won’t do. They are the most vile, corrupt, disgusting people on earth. So hypocritical too that they portray their enemies as they see themselves. Americans see through their lies, and that’s why Trump is here, and he isn’t going anywhere.

    Hey Chris, What About Biden’s Son’s Hedge Fund He Started When His Dad Was The Head Of The Banking Committee Or About Biden’s Brother Who Somehow With No Experience Became The Executive Of A Construction Company That Just So Happen To Get Billions In Contracts To Rebuild Iraq When Biden Was Placed In Charge Of Iraq? Obviously Your Working On That Now. CNN Couldn’t Possibly Be Biased And In The Tank For Joe Biden.

  13. It’s not Rocket science, when a person gets $50,000 per month for doing a job when he can’t speak the language or have any skills in that industry – you do the Math. How do I get one of them jobs?

    😁🤪🤣 is Hunter a real problem for Joe Biden😆😄????.
    The question that nobody’s asking is what did Joe Biden give in return for his son’s lucrative business deals in China and Ukraine?

  15. Thank God there’s ZERO evidence right?, Oh wait just the fact that Joe publicly admitted to do so. Hey Chris SHOW THAT CLIP.

    • Truth Seeker -You missed the point. What Biden did was perfectly normal (according to Chris) so the video of him bragging about it isn’t anything important. He was bragging about doing something good….and legal.

    • Yeah the whole EUROPEAN union was in the same corrupt thing?

  16. 0:30 IF u gonna qoute someone, dont just say “end qoute” whenever u feel like it. There were two more sentences in that tweet.

    • That’s how they roll in order to deceive their fan base. Just like leaving out Sondland’s text in those series of texts.

    • Bingo.. They tell you what to think and ignore and hide actual evidence because it doesn’t fit their Hate Trump and do whatever it takes to get him out of office narrative. They’ve been on that mission since the day after he won the election.

    • But you all can read for yourself, no? If you’re slow readers, just stop the video and take your time.
      Besides _”…Joe should hang it up. I wouldn’t want him dealing with China & U!”_ isn’t exactly an example of the “great and unmatched wisdom” that he’s so proud of.

    • @O. B. And what do you have to say about them leaving out Sondland’s whole text telling the others they are totally misunderstanding Trumps intentions and there is no Quid Pro Quo. The probably the most important text in the thread. Let’s leave out the facts because they don’t fit the narrative.

    Lets face it. Joe rolled out the red carpet for his son. So YES it is a problem!!!

    I love how he leaves out the CRACK

    • James Deveney Productions -He said he’s admitted to using cocaine as a college student and as an adult.

    • @Bovine One
      2016 Hunter Biden leaves crack pipes two different IDs all kinds of stuff in a rental car! This dude to never make a decision for himself daddy did it all and use attic sun to laundry money! Not only in Ukraine but in China and God only knows where else but I’m sure we’ll find out soon God bless President Trump the truth Warrior! All of these criminals will not walk away not one of them! We’re talking the entire Obama administration!

    • Hi James…Maybe you coughed or sneezed at the 2 minute mark of this video…

      “Hunter Biden admitted that he used cocaine in collage and as an adult, he has acknowledged that he’s struggled with alcohol addiction…”

      So James, are you being disingenuous?, or perhaps you’re a government shill? or perhaps you’re suffering from cognitive impairment??

      The BAHAHAHA at the end of your comment, clearly shows your rank non-comprehension of the peril that faces the United States of America and its Constitution.

      I wish you a speedy recovery….Kind regards…Cj Murray

  19. You cried Russian collusion too many times.CNN the NCN.The no credit Network.

  20. trump is changing the narrative talking away creating confusion at the expense of the lives of thousands of kurds.. Thousands will die the moment turkey advances on them ..
