No politician would do this unless they intended to benefit from it.
Holding elected office requires maintaining all sorts of firewalls. The most basic of these firewalls is between a public official and the business dealings of his friends and family members.
Despite all the time spent in office, Joe Biden not only failed to uphold and maintain these firewalls, but he tore them down on every occasion.
Joe Biden phoned in and showed up to chat with his son’s foreign business partners. (He appears to have a history of doing this, also glad-handling his brother’s business partners.) When his people deny that Hunter was sending threats to his business partners in his name with his consent, it’s not credible because Joe had taken steps to erase the natural firewall that should have existed. Once the firewall was down, Joe Biden was entangled, the question is not whether he was entangled, but how much.
