Late. Ted Cruz, R-Texassaid Republicans should focus on President Biden, not his son Hunter Biden, saying the president “is the godfather.”
In the latest episode of his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz,” the Texas Republican said his party must focus on President Biden in their investigations and not focus on his vulnerable son.
“The focus has to be on Joe Biden, this is not about Hunter Biden, any more than if you go after the mafia and you catch a low-level enforcer, or you go after a drug cartel and you catch some mules who swallowed balloons drunk of heroin,” Cruz said.
“It’s not about the poor schlub who got caught. It’s about the boss,” the senator continued.
“It’s about the big guy. It’s about the Godfather, Joe Biden is the Godfather. He’s the one who ultimately profits from this corruption,” Cruz said. “He is the one who abuses official authority to promote the criminal activity of his family members. And that is why this is a matter of public corruption.”
Cruz said the Justice Department under Biden is “desperate” to “keep this going,” pointing to the DOJ’s handling of Hunter’s “drug problem.”
“You know what, we wouldn’t be talking about it if it was just a deeply troubled soul,” Cruz continued. “The reason we should be talking about it, and the reason the corporate media and the Democrats desperately don’t want to talk about it, is that there is now mounting evidence of corruption by Joe Biden himself when he was vice president of the United States. states.
“And now that he’s the president of the United States, personally enriching himself and enriching his family by selling official favors to enemies, hostile foreign governments — that’s a matter of the highest importance,” he argued.
Cruz’s comments come as Republicans prepare to take control of the House in January, with GOP leadership vowing to launch more investigations, including into Biden.
The White House is already playing defense against the GOP investigations, in which the administration claims Republicans pushed “long-debunked conspiracy theories” in their claims that Biden had a hand in his son’s overseas business dealings.
“Instead of working with President Biden to address issues important to the American people, such as lower costs, congressional Republicans’ top priority is to go after President Biden with politically motivated attacks filled with long-debunked conspiracy theories, ” Ian Sams, a spokesman for the White House counsel’s office, said last week.
“President Biden will not let these political attacks distract him from focusing on the priorities of the American people, and we hope that congressional Republicans will join us in tackling them instead of wasting time and resources on political revenge,” Sams added.
