Washington Post’s Lead Liar Waves Away Mountain Of Evidence To Claim Biden Corruption Proof Is ‘Scant’

Glenn Kessler pretended to ‘dissect’ Rep. James Comer’s comments but did not challenge any of the evidence the Republican mentioned.


The Washington Post’s lead fake fact-checker Glenn Kessler accused House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer of offering “scant” evidence of Biden family corruption but failed to dispute any of the oodles of evidence the Republican outlined in a recent interview.

In a conversation with Fox News’s Jimmy Failla on Monday, Comer gave a rundown of the evidence including the fact that nearly a dozen Biden family members received payments first shuffled through several Biden-linked bank accounts. The money was sourced from various business deals with foreign oligarchs who had a vested interest in making friends with a high-level U.S. official like a vice president. Those payments were also at the center of the IRS’s tax investigation against Hunter Biden.

President Joe Biden unquestionably benefitted from this arrangement after receiving a $40,000 CEFC China Energy check from his brother in 2017 and another $200,000 in Americore cash that Jim claimed were personal loan repayments. Biden’s bookkeeper Eric Schwerin testified this month that despite his intimate relationship with the then-VP’s finances, he never saw any indication that Biden handed out loans to anyone.

After hearing this summation of the Biden family shenanigans, Kessler published an article on Thursday complaining that the corruption evidence Comer mentioned during the media clip is “scant.”

Kessler pretended to “dissect” Comer’s comments but did not challenge any of the evidence the Republican mentioned. He simply took issue with how Comer, who has offered countless interviews and press conferences on the matter, delivered the information in the brief TV appearance with Failla.

In the clip, Comer mentioned “ten different Biden family members that received” diluted payments from foreign companies.

Kessler agreed that Jim Biden, Sara Biden, Hallie Biden, Melissa Cohen, Kathleen Buhle, three unnamed children, Hunter Biden, and Joe — 10 Biden family members — received the shell company payments. Yet he contested Comer’s claims on the grounds that “virtually all of this money flowed to Hunter Biden” and “The others received relatively small amounts.”

It shouldn’t matter if the Biden relatives were paid only $1 instead of $10 million. The House Oversight Committee’s revelation last year that it had bank records detailing foreign companies’ payments to the Bidens wholly contradicts the president’s lies, which Kessler thinks are unnecessary to track, that there is an “absolute wall” between business and family.

Kessler also took issue with Comer’s characterization of payments “for services that we have yet to determine.” Even after readily ignoring the testimony of Biden family associates who said Hunter was often included in deals because of his father’s “brand,” Kessler admitted Hunter wasn’t necessarily qualified for every position he had.

Kessler tried to take issue with other parts of Comer’s interview, including when he claimed the money came from at least five foreign countries, but failed to counter any of the facts presented. Instead, he griped about Comer calling the foreign oligarchs “bad people in bad countries.

“Another sweeping generalization,” Kessler wrote. “The United States is a strong supporter of Ukraine in its war against Russia.”

The committee leaves no publicly presented fact unaccounted for, including clarifying that the “nearly $30 million” invoked by Comer in the interview “includes loans to pay Hunter’s taxes and the sale of his artwork.” Yet Kessler spends more than 1,200 words casting doubt on the committee’s findings simply because he doesn’t like them.

Kessler’s nitpicking doesn’t change the facts of the case. The Bidens sold access to their patriarch to foreign companies, many of them closely linked to their home country’s government, in exchange for millions. There are bank receiptsWhite House visitor logstestimonies from Biden business partnerstext messages, and other documents indicating the Biden family profited off their patriarch’s name and position.

Anyone who bothers to read the article will quickly realize Kessler is not disputing that the Bidens used their patriarch’s name to maintain an international influence-peddling scheme that financially benefitted their family. Instead, Kessler focused on splitting hairs and complaining that Comer generalized information that has been publicly available to media mouthpieces like Kessler to review for months if not years.

The Washington Post’s profound dishonesty should come as no surprise considering the publication shamelessly advanced the Russia collusion hoax and platformed the Brett Kavanaugh rape conspiracy. Kessler, especially, is guilty of parading Democrat talking points about Hunter Biden’s laptop, Burisma, and other parts of the first family’s influence-peddling operation as “fact” then quietly amending his articles later to begrudgingly reflect the truths conservative media reported from the beginning.

Kessler’s article doesn’t simply prove he is a partisan hack employed by a publication that has done nothing but run cover for Biden and Democrats while cheering and aiding the targeting of conservatives. It also shows the corruption of the corporate media complex.

In the blink of an eye, publications like the Washington Post went from denying there was any evidence of Biden family corruption to claiming there is in fact evidence. That evidence is anything but “scant.”
