We called it over two weeks ago.
“…yes, just by the public record we already have, Joe Biden, his son, their bag-man Devon Archer, and possibly John Kerry likely violated 18 USC 1951, the dreaded Hobbs Act, the federal anti-extortion law. Hobbs has a really nasty bite to it for public officials, because it prohibits not just bribery, but merely the collecting of political tribute under color of official right. A couple of important things to remember about Hobbs: “Color of official right” applies only to public officials while they are in office.”
“Biden needed only to take an action that involved Burisma and its owner, and intervening with Ukraine over Mr. Shokin is more than enough to meet the elements of the law. Under the Hobbs Act, it doesn’t matter if Mr. Shokin was actually getting anywhere or whether the ultimate disposition of Burisma would have been at all different. The Hobbs Act was specifically written to punish elected officials who broadly trade on their offices, and boy, does it ever. Rest assured that Mr. Barr and Mr. Durham understand this only too well.
One more thing to consider: The guy who is really at the center of the scandal is Devon Archer, seen here in the famous golfing photo. Joe is now trying to deny knowing about Burisma and his son, but there is a mountain of evidence to the contrary, including Hunter’s own admissions. Remember, Hunter Biden is a wreck of a man from constant drug use, and Joe himself is too stupid to put together million-dollar bribery schemes.
The man who did is Devon Archer, who snagged his own job on the Burisma board almost immediately after John Kerry’s State Department put in the Poroshenko regime in 2014. Then he brought along his buddy, Hunter Biden, where they both made millions. Archer is a longtime close aid to John Kerry and a business partner with Kerry’s stepson, the billionaire playboy Chris Heinz. It’s also true that Kerry is Joe Biden’s closest Washington friend and ally. No wonder Archer, with such intimate connections to the two men, Kerry and Biden, whom Obama chose to oversee American aid to Ukraine, was on the first plane he could find to Kiev to offer his “services” in 2014.”
