Democratic presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr (RFK) changed tactics and demanded an investigation into possible corruption by President Joe Biden.
Kennedy has previously shied away from calling out Biden’s corruption as part of his campaign but, but since the release of last week’s report that alleged that Biden was part of a $10 million bribery scheme, he has now become vocal on the issue.
The report alleges Burisma Holdings founder Mykola Zlochevsky told an informant that he was “coerced” into paying the Bidens $10 million to get a Ukrainian investigation shut down.
“I have avoided criticizing the president because I’m trying to bring people together and end some of the vitriol, the poison that’s made politics so poisonous,” Kennedy told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo’s “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“I think though the issues that are now coming up are worrying enough that we really need a real investigation of what happened,” he said.
“I mean, these revelations where you have Burisma — which is a notoriously corrupt company that paid out apparently $10 million to Hunter and his dad — if that’s true, then it is really troubling.”
Kennedy said the politicization of federal law enforcement should be a concern for Americans.
“I think that that’s something that every American needs to worry about, and our federal agencies, which used to be above politics, and now become weaponized as political instruments, and that, again, is another really damaging trend for our democracy,” he said.
As The New York Post reported:
FBI Director Christopher Wray allowed members of the GOP-led House Oversight Committee to read the document last month after the bureau initially refused — sparking a brief push by panel chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) to hold Wray in contempt.
The FBI then agreed to let legislators read the file in a secure room at the Capitol.
Last week, the White House sought to dismiss the bribery claim as a GOP smear campaign.
“Congressional Republicans, in their eagerness to go after President Biden regardless of the truth, continue to push claims that have been debunked for years and that they themselves have cautioned to take ‘with a grain of salt’ because they could be ‘made up,’” presidential spokesman Ian Sams said.
Jim Jordan joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures, where he refused to commit to the impeachment of Joe Biden or Merrick Garland despite overwhelming evidence of corruption.
